I received these shoes in the typical Zappos fashion (one day after I ordered them) and they are extremely comfortable and sized perfectly. Born makes a killer shoe and I expect them to last as long as my previous ones.

They felt OK, but came unstitched within hours of wearing them the first time. Somewhat of a disappointment.

These are very comfortable, as are most shoes I've owned from Born (this is my 5th pair). These run about a half size large. The tan is darker than I expected, but not a problem. Overall, I'm very happy with them. Great casual, summertime shoe. No socks!

These shoes are very good looking and most important, they are super comfortable. Most shoes you need to break in a bit, not these. They are soft and comfortable the minute you put them on. I would definitely get these again.

This is my "go to" pair of shoes. They are very casual but still a nice looking shoe. They are worn down now after two years of heavy use but they were very comfortable for a long time. I would purchase again.

These shoes are true to size and very comfortable. With BORN you get what you pay for, and they look great with not only khakis but jeans as well!

I bought 2 pairs of these for my husband and he loves them! He is in retail and on his feet most of the day. He thinks these shoes are the most comfortable he's worn in a long time!

These are nice shoes. This is my second pair of Born shoes. They are really soft and comfortable. Order half a size down. They may be tight at first but after a day they loosen up and will fit perfectly.

My husband loved these. He has a standing desk at work and he thinks these are the most comfortable shoe ever because of the great arch support.

Perfect weekend and casual Friday shoe. Nicer than a pair of sneakers but stylish enough to wear instead of dress loafers. I now have three pairs.

Great shoes! Lighter soles than the normal Born shoes and they look a little more refined than some of their other shoes. The only downfall is that the soles do not have much grip and the shoes are thin and cold in the winter.

My husband has never had such a comfortable pair of shoes. I twisted his arm trying to get him to try Born shoes and now he is a huge fan. He even wants the shoes in black now too. Woohoo! So pleased he has dress shoe that don't make his feet sore. Life is good in Born shoes!

I bought these shoes for my husband as a birthday gift. He loves them. Last year he bought the same pair in brown. Super comfy. These have a nice contemporary look.

My husband is an extremely picky shopper. He is one of those guys - if he finds something he likes he buys in bulk! So we took liberties with Zappos amazing service, free shipping, shopping at 11 p.m. at night, etc, etc. and ordered quite a few pairs back and forth. Bottom line, he felt like he won the lottery with these Born shoes. Know that they stretch, so don't buy a size up.

Runs very large. I usually wear a 9.5 or 10 and bought a 9.5. However, after these stretched out my feet are absolutely swimming in them, even with added insoles.

These shoes are excellently comfortable, but they're definitely for casual wear... usually with jeans. After a couple months, they look like beaters. Great shoe that will last a long time (I've had mine for over a year; they're still very sturdy), but don't expect them to stay looking great. My girlfriend makes fun of the way they're beat to heck. I love Born.

I'm never disappointed with Born. These shoes are very comfortable. I'm able to wear them with pants or shorts. The color matches almost exactly. Thrilled with this purchase.

Pretty comfortable, the material maybe looks a little more rubbery than the distressed leather I was expecting, but they're pretty great. I would say size a half size down at least, heck maybe even a full size.

Just received them today. Great looking. Sized a half down like the other reviews advised and they fit perfectly. Heel seems a bit stiff and uncomfortable but I'm sure it'll wear in, otherwise very comfortable.

Great feeling shoe and sharp looking either casual or dress. I found it true to size and this shoe feels great, can barely feel it on your foot. I think anyone would be pleased with the look and the feel of this comfort shoe.

This shoe is very nice, but I had some fit problems. I am a 12.5 US shoe size, typically 46 Euro works for me. This was very much too small. Also, this shoe is very casual-looking - it looks aged and distressed. Its a nice look, but I needed something a little dressier.

Great looking, very comfortable slipper. It has a rich, authentic look - doesn't look cheap or shiny. Wore it to a recent tradeshow with jeans and a sportcoat. Looks sharp. The slightly higher cut lets you wear nice socks and have them actually show - just a little, on top if you want that look. Worn with white socks gives kind of a retro/classy 1950's look. Very pleased.

Brands I'd also recommend: This is a good brand. I'm pleased.
