I really wanted to LOVE these boots. I was looking for a great flat boot that would be good with leggings in the winter. In the video, the leather looks so much softer than it was in person. Also, I have thin ankles and the boot was a little tough and rubbed against my ankles when I walked (not to mention looked unflattering).

I think these are very cute boots, but with my 13" calves, they were super wide at the top of the shaft. I had a good 3" extra floating around and it looked really silly- a bit Puss In Boots'ish. So if you have scrawny calves like mine, you may want to skip these!

I read all the reviews and everyone said to order down and of course I didn't. Ordered up 1/2 size and they were way to long and wide. They are very pretty boots and I re-ordered my size, now hoping they will fit. Hope this helps anyone.

These boots are great, but fall apart quickly! I've had them a little over two months and already two of the covered buttons have fallen off of one of the boots. I've never had a problem with things coming off of my shoes (I usually keep shoes for many years). Now I'm left with boots that have two sharp, ugly metal nubs where the buttons should be. I'm very disappointed, because for the price they should have lasted much longer. I have e-mailed the company about the problem but received no response. Otherwise they are nice boots!

Looked cheap...like rubber rain boots rather than a rich leather. The ankle area was baggy and didn't fit well at all! Bottom line: I promptly returned them.

I'm petite, and these boots just weren't flattering. The shaft came up to my knee, and the lack of heel just make me look dumpy. The leather seemed more like plastic; there wasn't even a trace of that rewarding leather scent when I opened the box. Back they go...

I was so disappointed with this shoe. It's everything I've been looking for in a boot - for years! First pair I ordered, when I took them out of the box, brand new, a button was missing. I hoped it was just a fluke. Received my second pair, got a few wears out of the boots, then I lost a button. I won't be making any more Born purchases, their quality has gone downhill.

Brands I'd also recommend: Frye, Clarks

I thought these were great boots until all of the buttons started falling off within three days of receiving the boots. I contacted Born directly to deal with the issue and I had to pay $20 to ship the boots to them while they do a three to four week "investigation." So now I'm out the money and without boots. I initially bought these for my new job, so without new boots, I had to run out and buy a new pair I could wear to my job. So, basically between the money I had to spend on new boots, the shipping costs, and the old boots, I have spent a lot and don't even physically have them. Very disappointed. The zipper just broke on other Borns I purchased a few months ago, costing me $35 to get them repaired. Also, I'm a broke ass. I never spend this much on shoes. This was really supposed to be a special treat for myself, but instead it's been very expensive and worthless. I will never buy Born Shoes again, despite the fact that they fit my wide/high-arched feet. Very disappointed.

I was excited to purchase these boots, but am very disappointed in the quality. The leather feels cheap, and there is a little damage that looks like the leather has been torn off. For this price I expected higher quality. The boots fit true to size. There isn't a whole lot of wiggle room in the calf, which is fine if you like a tighter fit. I was impressed, however with how quickly the boots arrived. I purchased them on a Wednesday with standard shipping, and they were here by Friday afternoon.

I wanted to love these boots, they actually look adorable, but as others have said the leather does seem incredibly thin and cheap. The style is very cute and they provide a nice snug fit around the ankle, but when I tried them on and walked around my home, the soles squeaked - loudly! My husband said to look up home remedies to help abate the sound, but these are not a pair of Target shoes, they sell for a lot and I do not want to risk it. I am sure people would think that it is the leather squeaking and not the soles, which are made out of rubber by the way. So, sadly, I had to return them.
