I love these boots! Very comfortable, as with most Born products. Also, I apparently have a wider calf, as I can't zip up most boots - and these boots have plenty of room to tuck in leggings and zip up comfortably! I will be wearing them all winter.

Not great: the leather feels cheap to me. Also, I've had luck with Born shoes before with my wide feet and high arches, but these are definitely not wide in the toe, and there's no arch support. They're going back.

I ordered these in the grey. It is more of a mushroom color - a cross between true grey and taupe. I love it. It is a versatile color and a very comfortable and casual boot. Looks great tucked into jeans and will work with a skirt and leggings.

Brands I'd also recommend: cole haan, gentle soles

Great boots--so comfortable right from the start, they felt like wearing slippers. My calf is 13.5 inches wide and these have a little extra space if I want to tuck jeans in, but don't leave a large gap if I'm just wearing them with skirts or dresses. Shiny enough to dress up, but comfy enough to walk for miles. I have a wider toe box and a narrow heel and the fit is perfect for me.

LOVE these boots! I have lots of foot problems and these are amazing! Thank you to all the reviews before me! If not for them, I wouldn't have spent this much on a boot. First wearing out of the box, I wore them 10 hours with no blisters are soreness! These are a must buy!

I have been looking for a comfortable pair of cute boots for years - I'm pretty tough on shoes and the last few years I've had to buy new ones each year because they wear out or give me blisters. These boots are like a dream - super comfy (seriously feel like I'm wearing sneakers) and the buttons up the side really give them a little something unique. I have moderately-sized calves and they fit a little more snugly than I'm used to (totally look great with skinny jeans and tights - not too tight) but if you have larger calves that may be a problem. I've never worn Born before and I think I'm a believer now. Get these! (Or at least try them - you can always return!)

Great boot. I am a busy mom of 2 and I wanted something that was comfortable and still stylish. The buttons on the side add texture, however I hope they can take the wear and tear that my running around will put them through.

As a person absolutely obsessed with shoes---its always hard for me to purchase boots. If your looking for simple chic but standout boots this is it. I have big calves and basically I can wear them with skinny jeans and stocking but nothing thicker then those items esp if I want to zip all the way. To top it off I haven't seen anyone with these boots so that is always a huge plus for me. :)

I love these boots. They're very comfortable because of the soft sole. And I love the button detailing and unusual leather color. I've gotten several compliments on them already.

Love these boots! I ordered them in the Brown Crunched Leather and I love them so much. I had wanted more of a cognac color but this brown goes with just about everything. I get compliments all the time, especially on the button details up the sides. They are SUPER comfortable, too. They look great with skinny jeans, leggings, dresses, or skirts... Truly a great boot and, although they are pricey, the quality is fantastic and I know I will wear these for many, many seasons. If you're having doubts...don't! Buy them!

This was my first time buying boots! I've been searching for almost a tear for the perfect boots, and these fit the bill!! I'm so happy with the way they fit, and the style. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Also, they are super comfortable, right out of the box. I just love Zappos! One of the best online shopping experiences, ever, :)

Love the boots! They were exactly as described and the fit was perfect. Slightly roomy around the calf, but works with jeans tucked inside the boot. The videos are helpful.

These boots are awesome. They are so comfortable and stylish and very easy to wear with pants tucked in them. I have tried on lots of tall boots and these win the prize!

Love these boots! Beautifully made. I'm getting tons of compliments on them. My regular Born size was perfect. The calves are a tad larger than I'd like but then I think my calves are on the small size. Still narrow enough to wear under bootcut and looks fabulous with skinny jeans.

Love, love, love these boots! I pulled them out of the box, put them on, and wore them every day for 14 days straight! So comfy. They look great with jeans and skirts. These will be my go-to boots for the entire fall/winter.

The color is great! These very reasonably priced boots are soft, supple, and have plenty roomy in the calf. They feel wonderful and look slick with both skirts and pants. The buttons provide just enough detail. I wore them out of the box and walked several miles that same day. The best part is the color. It is neither black, nor brown, and not gray. They go with everything. Do not be fooled by the color name "sage." They are certainly not green.

Cute boot. Ordered the 9 1/2 (normally between that and size 10) and it fits great. Can even get my athletic calves with jeans zipped up inside with a little effort.

Soft, supple leather! Felt a little roomy in the foot and ankle area. (Room in the toe box and in the overall foot area.) I have large calves and was able to get these over jeans, no problems! My only wish is that it had a bit more heel, but the trade off of this beautiful boot is worth it!

I looked, and looked, and looked for the boots I wanted. I saw these in an Eddie Bauer catalog, of all places - and knew that they were perfect. They are even more lovely n person! But I usually wear a 7½ or 8, yet in these I am a 7! Just a caution. The heel is low, not quite an inch, so they are perfect for walking. They are absolutely lovely, so comfortable, and so beautifully detailed. Well done, Born!

I am absolutely in love with these boots! Just bought the sage colored and I'm planning on buying the grey in the near future. I have a wider calf and was worried (like other boots) that these would be too tight for me to wear thicker socks, however I was delighted to find out I will have no issues there. They are comfortable and true to size. A must for anyone's boot collection for fall!

Love these! I have a somewhat large calf size and these fit perfectly. I was looking for a brown boot to add to my boot collection to fall and these fit the bill! So excited to wear them when fall rolls in. The boots also fit true to size.

I absolutely love these boots! I got the crunched brown leather and the color is beautiful. The leather is soft and the sole is flexible. I expect to be wearing them constantly once fall gets here. I have a hard to fit largish calf and they comfortably fit all the way up.

I received these in the mail today and I have successfully completed my fall 2011 boot search. The leather is beautiful, the color, quality and construction is gorgeous and they are super comfy. I'm so excited to break out these babies once the weather cools down. Yay Born!

Felt a little narrow and a half size smaller.Love the button detail, but was disappointed they weren't as comfortable as my other Born boots. Maybe try to go 1/2 size up. Also a little wide in the calf.

These boots were really cute but way too big! They were at least 1 size too big for me. I usually wear a size 7.5 and ordered an 8, they were more like a 9.
