Purchased these in brown and black for my husband. He felt the brown ran a slight bit smaller than the black...go figure! Overall, he loves them both. Great casual not too "old mannish" looking shoe, in my opinion!

Super comfortable. Great with slacks or shorts. I had another pair of Born moccasins that lasted over 5 years. These are similar but more dressy. Can't go wrong with Born anyway.

I have several pair of Born shoes and I have always ordered size 14. I ordered a size 14 and it seemed larger than normal. I ordered a size 13 and find it to be too small. I am disappointed as I love born and will order more in the future!

These are my first pair of Born shoes and I may never buy another brand again. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn and they look great too! Zappos you need more size 14 and I will buy another pair!

I've been looking for these type of loafers with a more casual leather. After reading the reviews I bought the canoe color in half size down. Reviews are spot on with ordering a half size down. Great looks, comfortable as all get out, so I ordered a second pair. Righteous!

Super comfy, sharp style. If you have wide feet beware, proportions are long and narrow so going up a half size doesn't work.

The pictures show an orange stitching. Actually, its more of a natural tan colored stitching. I was impressed with how well the leather breathed. My feet felt almost chilly. :-)

Comfortable and stylish - I'm very happy. It will feel tight at first, but within your first few steps the foot bed settles and...let the comfort begin. I'm a physical therapist and I'm on my feet all day - so I appreciate their support. I have a traditional leather pair for work, and the suede version for play.

These shoes are very comfortable. They do tend to run a little large. I normally wear a size 13, but had to return them for a size 12. Great for going through airport security. These shoes are very good for business casual dress.

Best shoes I have ever owned...really. Good looking and very comfortable. After I got my first pair, I ordered 2 more pair in case the shoe was discontinued. They are that good.

My slippers aren't this comfortable! Thanks for the reviews I read to alert me to order down a half size. Normally an 11, these 10.5's are perfect!

This is a very stylish shoe, great for casual wear. I returned the first pair for a half size smaller. The replacement pair was a little snug in the width but is breaking in nicely. The shoe upper is a bit low around the heel area, so your heel may ride up a bit depending on your stride. Not a problem for me. It is a comfortable casual loafer.

I loved these shoes,but they were tight across the top of my instep & heel while gaping at the side. I have wide feet, I think with narrow or more medium width feet the fit would be fine. They are very nice & stylish - felt like good support, classic for Born shoes. Had to return them sadly, but of course Zappos service is 2nd to none, so I'm sure ill find another pair of shoes I like even more today!

In general, the shoe has a good loafer fit - very good comfort. The sole is flat, without a heal, so the heal is lower than other loafers that have a heal and it may even be slightly lower than the ball of the foot area. The heal slips on and off if your heal is narrow. The area where you might insert a penny is detached - not stitched to the upper. The shoe has a slightly worn or rugged appearance which I like and good color but the sole line is wavy which I think detracts from its appearance.

Great shoe. Love every Born shoe I have had. It arrived in the normal, amazingly quick time from Zappos. Really soft and a great cushion inner sole. My gripe is with the color. What does Ras mean? I thought by the photo they were a rust brown color. Nope . . . chocolate brown. It would be so much easier if these people just used colors. They are so nice I don't want to return, but didn't want this brown.

Yes, I know that feet can be different sizes but I've never had this issues until this pair of shoes. Not sure if the left is too large or the right is too small.

Very nice leather, but the dimensions of this shoe were bizarre. The heel is extremely wide, and the forefoot is narrow. The biggest issue is with the height of the shoe where the arch is. If you have a very wide heel, and flat, narrow feet, I think you will love these. Otherwise, I would pass.

I liked the rugged look and the comfort was pretty good. After about a week of full wear the stitching started to come apart were the top meets the side in the opening for your foot. Was given a replacement sent directly to my home and they had the same issue while still in the box. Took those back to the store and the displays were doing the same thing. Watch out for the poor quality of the stitching.

Don't bother with these shoes. Don't get me wrong, they look fine. But the quality isn't there. I've had the shoe's for only a few weeks and the strip of leather located inside the shoe on the back has already torn. HORRIBLE value. Do NOT buy them.
