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.

Normally a Born 13 is plenty roomy for me, but a 13 in these seemed a little tight. Zappos excellent service sent me some 14s, but actually the 13s just needed to stretch a little. Excellent shoes, and thanks to Zappos' excellent exchange policies - makes it very easy to shop on line with confidence.

Extremely comfortable shoe. I normally wear a size 10 but a 9.5 fit better and still had a good amount of toe space left. (That's why I chose felt half a size larger.) I also consider that the leather may stretch over time.

Great feel, quality so far. First day of wearing it. The back part could have been a bit higher so the shoe doesn't have much vertical movement but I am hoping that it goes away as it gets broken in.

Talk about a comfortable pair of shoes. Supportive and feels like I am walking on pillows! If you have wide feet, these should work well.

These shoes are perfect. It takes one day to break them in. They now fit snugly while still sliding on and off with ease.

Very pleasing look when looking down at your foot. Proportions are correct and I feel good about how they look. With socks on they needed a few days to break in and stretch. Barefoot they are a little tacky on the inside, this I hope will improve with wear. The Leather isole is better than the mesh insole in other born products I've had

Bought the Born Harmon about 3 weeks ago. Beautiful looking, Beautiful fit (true to size in my case an 8m). I live in Florida and am Always looking for a light color slip on. Did I mention they are very comfortable. I have never been disappointed in Born shoes, have bought maybe a dozen pair over the years. When ever they have the color I like and my size, (which is not always).

I have a tough getting fitted for shoes. I have a fairly wide foot, but in general alot of discomfort. The Born Harmon, was the first shoe in along time, that I a feelin g of comfort the first day I wore them. In a couple weeks I plan on purchasing another pair, same shoe in a different color. Great shoes.

This shoe fit perfect right out of the box. The leather is soft and was broken in after the first wearing. The sole is durable yet not too radical that it does not allow the shoe to be worn with a business casual outfit. Born makes a durable long wearing comfortable shoe that also provides a bit of style at an affordable price.

I took a risk and bought my exact shoe size (9.5), and I have a wide foot. When I first tried to put them on, I literally could not get them on because they were so tight. I thought for sure that I would have to send them back. I'm happy to say I was completely wrong. I forced them on my feet and wore them for a few hours while lounging around, and they fit perfect now. It took about 4 days of wear for them to really mold to my foot, but they fit really well now. They go good with blue jeans and khakis and can be worn in many situations. Overall, a great purchase.

I saw one review that said these stretched so much that they no longer fit, so when I got mine and they were a little snug, I figured they would break in. And they did, literally within an hour of wearing them around the house. I've put them away as a Christmas present, so we'll see if they stretch out of control when I really start wearing them. They are really, really nice though. Very cool and really comfortable (as far as I can tell so far).

Love these. They are extra supple and comfortable, fit really well, and feel great on the feet. They have a light/thin sole that provides quite a bit of feel for example when walking over stones. I like that!

I bought these shoes in the lighter brown for my husband and he loves them. He needed a casual, but nice work shoe. One he can wear with jeans and khakis, but occasionally with a suit. He says they fit like a glove and are extremely comfortable.

My only concern was the heel which lacked support. The heel actually felt lower than the sole. I chose to continue wearing the shoes to determine if it was just me or there was a problem.

Shoe looks and feels sharp. Love the look and feel of the leather. Very nice insole. I wear them with or without socks. Not as dressy as I had hoped because of the lack of heal and style of the sole. Maybe a small step below business casual. Kind of a moccasin type feel and look. Very happy with them and would buy them again. Comfortable for work and driving. OK for walking short distances.

These are "moc design" but not true moccasin construction for you purists. Also, the video is wrong - they're not leather lined. There is a piece of leather across the vamp and a leather heel counter lining but other than that, they are unlined. The insole is quite puffy (which some may like). Overall very comfortable feeling but not for me.

This is a great looking casual shoe that looks good with jeans or chinos. Unfortunately, they fit weird. They're a 1/2 size too big. They were a little tight at first but stretched quickly after wearing for a little while. They're just not that comfortable. I usually take them off at my desk to give my feet a rest. Disappointed.

Poor quality in the stitching. I wore the shoes 10 times and the side stitching is already unraveling. Why ? This is my 3rd and last pair of Born shoes. I need to find a better quality alternative.

These quickly stretched out on me, too. Now they flop around. And even though I have worn them very little, the heel and sole are showing significant wear.

Not at all what I expected! I bought a pair of these shoes about 3 years ago and they were great. The last pair I order were the same size but did not fit at all. They changed the sole and the inside. Much worse fit and quality. Will not order these again!

I loved the way these shoes looked the moment I saw them. Tried on a 10, and it was a big too snug. Tried on a 10.5 and my foot slipped out. Decided not to purchase from the store. But a few days later, I couldn't resist and ordered a pair of 10s online, figuring that they would stretch a little. And they did. For 2 weeks, they were super-comfortable, fit well, and I loved wearing them. But then they kept stretching, and stretching, and stretching. Now they're unwearable, after maybe 6-8 weeks of wear. Ultimately, a huge disappointment. Too bad I can't find another company that makes a venetian loafer with similar styling.
