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.

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.

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.
