I usually wear a size 8.5, but based on other reviews I ordered a 9. It fit fine, was comfortable, but the color was off. Not a dark brown at all but more of a brownish taupe. It's not a bad color, but I really was looking for a dark brown. Also, I thought the platform looked cheap. Didn't like the plastic look of it. Zappos, as always, was great to deal with!

I have these shoes in black and I love them! I wanted the brown ones so I just ordered them without reading the reviews. Imagine my surprise when I took the not brown shoes out of my Zappos box. They are not even close to being brown. A huge disappointment. I also couldn't even get the shoes on, they run much smaller than the black ones.

These shoes are comfortable, and look great. I love that I can just slide them on. Am considering getting them in the brown.

These shoes are very comfortable, especially for a pair of heels. I've had foot surgery on both feet, so I normally can't wear a pair of heels for more than an hour or two before my feet are killing me, but I've worn these Haddons all day and only had minor soreness at the end of the day -- no different than I would normally feel after a day on my feet. I usually wear a 6.5 or 7, and since Borns tend to be snug I ordered a 7 which is just a tiny bit on the loose side, but not loose enough to be uncomfortable. Just factor that in depending on the thickness of socks or tights you'll wear with them.

Love them! Can wear these with my long jeans instead of heels and be comfortable all day! Ordered 1/2 size up & fit perfect. Snug going on but they don't feel snug wearing them. I would say a form fitting shoe. I have average length & width feet. Born never fails.

I purchased the metallic and love the look. Wear a 7.5, ordered same and it fit fine. I wore at work for 2 days without hose or socks and no blisters. I love the fit of these shoes and plan to purchase another pair.

Love, love these shoes! Super comfy...like wearing slippers with style. I normally wear 8.5 but took the advice of others and ordered a size up. I would recommend these shoes to everyone.

Love these shoes! Instant comfort; the platform makes the 3+ inches a breeze! I'm a true 10 with bunions; the 10 was perfect. No problem whatsoever getting into these shoes! The heel does slip a little. I plan to get some Foot petals to cure that. The color of the dark brown is really a very nice taupe. Zappos, as always, is absolutely the best!

I love these shoes, however I also ordered them in the same color from another company and those truly were dark brown, the ones Zappos sent are an unflattering taupe. Just a warning.

Born shoes are beautifully made and very comfortable. The cushioning supports the arches well. I do a lot of walking and I can wear them all day long. It's actually better for the back not to wear a flat shoe, but these are just as comfortable as any of my flats. This style can be both dressy and casual.

I love these shoes! The metallic finish is a great change from my usual brown and black, and the platform makes them feel like a 2" heel. Very comfortable, the initial tightness is perfect for a narrow heel. Overall terrific shoes that look awesome with jeans!

I have been wearing these regularly since I bought them and love them. They are a little more snug (narrow) than all my other Borns but they are still comfortable. They have good support and a lot of style. I wish they came in brown.

I love these shoes. They match perfectly with chocolate brown clothes, and they have this fabulous metallic sheen! Super comfortable but a tall heel with the platform. I'm 5'8" and they make me feel super model height. I have worked in them on my feet all day and walked in them all day when visiting D.C.

I bought these in black and I love them. They are super comfortable! I normally wear a 7½, but in Born shoes I take an 8 (it is all that cushion and support). I love that I can wear my thicker socks with them and they fit perfectly. I love heels, but due to flat feet, I end up buying them, wearing them once, and then shoving them in the back of my closet. With these heels, I can walk around all day, work, weekends, even hilly areas, and no pain. The only draw back would be in the snow there is not a lot of insulation. But other than that, I recommend these heels for those who are looking for the heel look, minus the pain.

Bought the brown, not a true brown, but a nice color with jeans. The shoe does run small; however, it is a great shoe! Very comfortable, has a very cool, casual look with jeans and denim skirt. I bought this shoe for the winter season in California. I am ordering in black..very satisfied!

Bought this in moro metallic about two weeks ago - size 7, which is my usual size. Like other reviewers, I couldn't get them on my feet so went up a half size and it's perfect. The big platform saves my foot from pain while giving a vertical boost to my short frame; I can wear them all day with no discomfort. I felt the color was a true shade of brown, but the sheen may alter the appearance some - it's also what makes me like the shoe. I wear them mostly with deep brown or tan trousers as well jeans. I'm glad I bought these before reviews were out, because I may not have purchased.

I have a high instep; these really hurt all across the top when I had even thin socks on. Normally not an issue with Born shoes. Had tried on earlier and thought they would give, but these ended up being too snug to even try. Sad.

I love these shoes. They fit me extremely well. I have to admit, I have a skinny foot, so I had no problem getting them on at all. They have excellent support, and are very comfortable to walk long distances. My only slight complaint is the color, which is a light brownish- grey color. A bit odd, but it does seem to need buffing a lot. I wish they were dark brown. At any rate, I would give it five stars if it were not for this one little color issue.

These are comfy. True to size. I wear them with a light sock. Bought them for cooler weather casual before the snow fly's here. Great arch support. Color is not brown like the picture. Its more greyish brown. Kind of an odd color, but grows on you.

After reading the reviews I decided to go 1/2 size larger. It was too large for me. I think the shoe is too narrow in the front, making it not as comfortable as most of the Born shoes.

I own several pair of Born boots, all of which I love, all in a size 9. That's why I'm confused about why I can't get my foot into these. I really can't get my foot in - neither foot. I struggled for a few minutes with each one. Unfortunately, they'll be headed back to Zappos.

I really like the look of this shoe and because of that I tried it in two sizes, an 8.5, and then a 9. But both were too small for my foot. This shoe runs small and when you first try to wriggle your foot into it, you'll think there's absolutely no way you're going to get it in! But you can actually get your foot in, (remember those 26 bones in the foot!); after some practice, I could get my foot in without having to hold the shoe and assist with my hands. Once on, the shoe is very comfortable to stand in, as the bed is nice and padded with a spongy feel. But for me, the shoe was still a bit too short and a bit too tight across the instep. The polyurethane outer sole also is a little slippery on some surfaces. Since there was no 9.5 available from Zappos, I've given up on this shoe. But if you have the right foot for it, it's very stylish and looks good on, and costs less than other shoes of its type.

I have a tough time finding shoes that are comfortable enough to wear all day at work without hurting either the balls of my feet or across the top of my toes. I love the style of these shoes and the fact that they have a platform helps alleviate the height difference between the heel and the rest of the shoe, which makes them very comfortable for me. The brown w/metallic color dresses up the shoe and is unusual, without being freaky. Additionally, the shoes are not as heavy as you would think a platform would be. Zappos service was excellent, as always! Wonderful selection makes shoe buying so much easier than running around to different stores and the quick delivery is very close to instant gratification!
