This is my second pair of born shoes. They are the most comfortable shoes I've ever had. They fit like a glove, are true to size and have a very soft supportive foot bed. I'm glad I ordered these and will order other born shoes in the future.

Absolutely the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn for work. Great look and fit for my wide foot. I own two pairs now and hope Born never stops making this style. Worth $200 and I occasionally feel guilty walking around in essentially slippers at work. Butter.

I purchased these to wear at the office. They are the most comfortable business casual shoes I have ever owned, and are surprisingly versatile. No break in time. They ran a size large for me, but Zappos was really great about exchanging them.

These were purchased for my college-age son. They're cooler looking than regular penny loafers which his dad and older lawyer brother wear. He liked them a lot, wears them a lot and said they were comfy from the get-go.

These shoes are fantastic! Super comfy right out of the box and great style and color. They work well for casual office or heading out in a pair of jeans or shorts. Order a half size smaller than you normally would.

These are beautiful shoes. The color of them would go best with light to medium colored pants or shorts in the summer. They definitely run on the wider side and that was before they stretch.

Jose M

from Houston, TX

LOVE THIS SHOE. Looks broken in right out of the box and looks great with shorts and jeans. The leather is very soft and comfortable. I normally wear a 10.5-11 in athletic shoes and 10-10.5 in dress shoes but I had to go down to a 9 in these! The 9 fits like a glove with just a bit of extra toe room. I do have a narrow foot so someone with a thicker foot may want a bit more room but I expect these to feel better and better as the leather stretches over time.

Exactly what I was looking for, a casual shoe to wear without socks. So comfortable they felt like slippers right out of the box! Size 11 was right on.

Great shoe. It is my second pair like this. The first lasted over 5 years. They are very comfortable and fit well. They don't flop around on the feet so they are good to walk in as well.

Very comfortable. The first day I wore them, it felt like I had been wearing them for years. The leather is very soft, and the inner sole has a cushion ideal to use without socks.

Nice loafers. Warm, deep brown color is very attractive. Well-cushioned footbed. I wear 8 or 8 and the 8 here fit well after an hour on my feet to loosen up. I would say that the 8s are as long as 8 but as wide as 8s.

This is my second time buying this shoe. The soles on the last pair wore out, even though the leather was still holding strong. I ordered the tan color this time, and it is not as light as in the picture. In fact, it looks quite brown. I noted, "true to size", but you have to be patient. When you first get them, they feel tight, but the leather stretches in the first few days to your actual size. I noted no arch support, but I personally don't like supports since they press into my arches. Just me.

These excellent shoes were very comfortable. The only thing is that I normally wear a size 11.5 but in these, the correct size was an 11.

I bought these shoes for my husband's birthday. They are comfortable and he's very happy with them. I wish the black color were not pebble grain, but smooth. If so, I would buy another pair for him.

First, I love the style of these shoes. They, in my opinion, merge comfort in style in a very...well, stylish way. I've been wearing them a week, and I think they're only going to get better. My only issue is not with the shoes, but with my choice of size. Other reviews were a bit mixed as to sizing. I chose to buy what I normally wear, and I wish I had bought a half size larger. We'll see...shoes sometimes adapt, so I'm hopeful these will. They're sharp though! They're good with khakis and jeans, and that's what I was after.

I wore these for the first time to work last Friday. Before I got in the building, someone had already complimented on the shoe. Very comfortable, I've worn them with and without socks with no problem. They look great with slacks, jeans, or shorts. I've only had them a week, so assuming they hold up, I would give this shoe 5 stars all around.

Great comfortable shoe. Originally ordered a size 10 because the reviews said to go a little smaller. They got here and were still too big. I went for the 9.5 and they fit like a dream. I mostly wear them as casual shoes without socks and have had no problems with rubbing or tearing up the back of my heel. Would highly recommend these shoes for casual situations or even to wear at the office.

Fantastic shoe. Liked it so well, I bought 2 pairs for both my sons. Looks good with khakis as well as shorts. The shoe did run 1/2 size larger than expected and I had to return for a size smaller for both boys even though they normally always wear a 11 1/2 and a 12.

Great shoe. Excellent styling and quality of materials. Very pleased with this purchase. As others have mentioned, however, this model runs a half size small and slightly wider than other Born shoes. I usually wear a 12 but wear a 11.5 in these.

I recently ordered the Born Simon for my son's birthday. The shoes were perfect, but just a little too big. I checked Zappos return/exchange how-to information, and it could not have been easier! Printed the return label, took to UPS store, and the credit card was refunded very quickly. The replacement pair arrived in 3 days, fit beautifully, and I will do business with this company again!

This is my third pair of Born shoes and each has exceeded my expectations. Very comfortable with an very nice leather interior. They make a great pair of shoes for the more casual office wear.
