These are the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. I thought my Liz Claiborne Flex boots were great, but these are amazing. The arch support is the best I've had in a boot. I can't say enough about how much I like these. I do think they run a bit large and went down 1/2 size. I have very narrow feet and the width couldn't have been better. Both the brown (more distressed, casual look) and the black are beautiful! There is no break in period. If you're on the fence about these, order them now - you won't be disappointed.

I love these boots so much. The heel is higher than I'm used to but it works just fine. I got a size 7.5...which is what all my other Born boots are, but I think I could have done with a 7. It's been cold so I wear 2 pairs of socks and they fit great. I'm going to put some insoles in for the warmer months. My heel slips a little bit, they are narrower in the middle of the foot and wider at the heel. Just so you know.

Even though I have been shopping with Zappos for years, I was amazed that the boots I ordered on Wednesday night arrived on my doorstep on Thursday morning! Now to the boots...if you wear Born, you know they are really comfortable. If you don't...you gotta try these. They are soft, supple, stylish, cushiony, and plenty wide, even for my usually "wide" foot. The heel is just high enough to be stylish, yet comfortable. Definitely buying the black ones too!

I bought this in the Tan leather, which is slightly distressed. It's quite comfortable, despite the 2" heel. It seems to run narrow in the instep, yet roomy in the toe area. I usually wear a 6AA, but the 6M fits with a medium-weight sock. It has a rounded toe, instead of the usual pointed toe of western-style boots that make your feet look huge.

I love these boots. I have been looking for a comfortable western style boot and have found it in these. I have gotten so many compliments. Of course I direct them to Zappos. The arch support is great and I can wear them all day without one pinched toe. Thanks Born and Zappos.

If you want comfortable 'cowboy' boots, these are the ones. They fit my wide in front, high arch feet perfectly. They seem to go with everything. Perfect.

These are super cute, but were just too small and had to return. Loved them though and I think they would be super comfy if they fit.

OMG! If you are considering this boot, please just buy it. The most comfy stylish boot I have had in many years. I wore them for the first time while Christmas shopping. Normally this would not be an ideal break-in method, but these boots never hurt a bit. I am on the list to buy them in brown when they become available. Great product!

I love this boot. Born always makes such a comfortable shoe & this one is super stylish with bootcut jeans! The brown worn color is great. I have a wide foot; however, the toe area is roomy enough for me. I am not sure if wearing them for a long period of time might be a bit tight but, my feet are wider than average & I even went down a 1/2 size. Zappos as always, sent the shoes asap. I am currently considering buying another pair in the black color.

Cute! And comfortable. I got these in both black and brown. The brown has a distressed-look color, both the leather and the sole. This style is perfect with jeans. The zipper makes them easy to get on and off. The lace-up design on the side adds just enough unique style without being over-the-top. Fits true to size.

While to color is really a darkish brown not light tan as in the photo I am keeping these because they are so comfortable. I didn't have to use insoles or my heel cup which is a true sign of how comfortable and wearable these are. Not the most stylish boots I own but tops in comfort dept.

All reports of how comfortable these boots are are right on. They are easy to tuck jeans into, and with a skirt or leggings, they make your legs look good. My heel does slip in these as I have a wider toe area and a narrow heel.

A very cute western-style boot to walk everywhere in. I have ham hock legs so I probably wouldn't wear them with a skirt. I am between a 6.5 and 7; the 6.5 was too tight, but I need thick socks with the 7. Classic Born comfort. The worn-in brown leather looks great with jeans.

Saw these boots in a catalog and was happy to find them on Zappos website. They look great; excellent quality. Born is a brand I've worn before - sometimes they are really comfortable, sometimes just okay. These boots go in the really comfortable category. I've received many compliments.

The boots were exactly what I was looking for. I did put in a liner for a little extra cushion, but other than that I love them. My only complaint is that I thought they would be more water proof. My feet got wet after having to walk in a rainstorm - no damage to the boots though.
