Comfortable right out of the box! Sole is well-padded and flexible, leather straps are glove soft, heel very solid and well balanced for walking. In absence of half sizes (what is that about, Born?) advise ordering down if you are on the fence. I am a solid 7 1/2 with a wide instep and the 7 fits fine. And Zappos delivered in less than 24 hours!

The front of the sandal has too much room (bottom to top) from the sole to the cross straps. Your foot is all floppy so you have no control of your steps. You sound like a dinosaur plunking along with every step. It's like wearing clogs. If it weren't for the ankle straps, these would fly off your foot.

I was very excited to find this sandal but wow, it is HUGE. I normally wear a 6.5 or 7, ordered the 6 because reviewers indicated it ran large, but this one fit more like an 8! I think it might have been a comfortable shoe, but obviously nothing that provides support was anywhere near that part of my foot. So disappointed.

I have a high arch and wider foot, so I've had trouble finding Born's that work lately. Unfortunately these had to go back - too narrow and the straps are way too tight over my foot. They are cute and seem like they d be really comfy too bad. Just ordered the Born Maldives and absolutely love them. Thanks to Zappos awesome service with their free overnight shipping and returns I was able to find the perfect sandal in time for vacation!

Cute and very comfortable! These are my new favorite sandals for work. Heel is modest. Color is a little more gray than in the photo. Not super sexy, but like I said, great with a dress or skirt for work.

This sandal has a wonderful look and heel height. The shoe is comfortable right out of the box and true to size. I wear an 8 normally and the size 8 was perfect. The straps are sturdy and supportive. I really want to order another pair, probably the black. Born got this shoe right!

THANK YOU to the other reviewers who suggested going up 1/2 size! I'm a 7.5 and the 8 fits perfectly. I tried this and the Born Negril; I liked the delicate straps of the Negril better so am sending this one back. Very comfy shoe, though!

After reading the reviews, I knew the blue was not the color pictured, but I liked the style and the fact that so many people found the shoe comfortable and true to size. So yes, it is not the blue pictured, which by now someone should have corrected, but it is a nice blue, not dark navy, maybe a soft navy, maybe a marine blue since it has a bit of green in it so it could go with teal, but does well with jeans. It's not pastel, but a little darker, yet still soft in tone. It is comfortable from the get go and attractive. It could be worn with jeans or dresses. It is just what I was looking for. I just wish they would show the color correctly.

This is my second pair of Born Belindas. They are fabulous! I was pleasantly surprised that the actual color is a darker blue rather than the light blue as described and pictured. They fit perfectly and are super comfortable despite the heel height. I have walked for miles in them with no problems! I want a third pair!

Pro: This is one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. (I am wide in the toes, with a bunion.) Con: This is not "jean blue" or "light blue." It is marine blue, like the other Born shoes. I checked the box to be sure of the color. It says "jean blue" but it just is nothing like the photo. Huge disappointment.

I really love this shoe...ordered the black as well, but it didn't seem to look as nice. I have a pretty narrow foot...this fits me really well. So maybe it runs narrower for most...also for some reason I have a bit of a hard time with the heels that are angled...have no idea why. That's just me. Anyway, love this shoe.

Extremely comfortable and beautiful shoes. Born is my favorite brand, but they only make full sizes apparently. I am a solid 9 1/2 in sandals and every time I've ordered shoes from Born they either seem too small or too large. I ordered a 9 in these and my toes are a bit too close to the edge for my taste. Otherwise if you don't normally have the size problem, I highly recommend these.

These sandals are fantastic! A perfect fit and comfort. I am a true size 8, sometimes 7½ (Vintage Crown), 8½ or 9 (Steve Madden) depending on the brand. The insole is so soft, great for an all-day walking. I am a happy camper.

I love this shoe very, very much but it is definitely NOT the color shown. It is a much deeper blue. I have been searching for the Born in this blue shown as I love it as well. I still love the one I received, though!

I love these shoes--very comfortable and so cute! BUT I ordered the light blue denim color, and although the box and my receipt say these are light blue, they are definitely DARK blue. I would call them navy. The photo on the website is not accurate. I'm keeping them despite this issue because I really do like them, but if you're really looking for a light blue color, these aren't it.

The shoe was comfortable and fit like a glove. I ordered a 7 and I run 7 to 7 1/2. My foot just fit. I returned them because I really had my heart set on a rust pair and their stock was out when I tried to order it. I already have several pairs of black sandals.

I had longed for these sandals, loved the look of them. They arrived today and they are small, narrow, and have a composition plastic sole, which I don't like the looks of at all. I am so disappointed and will be returning these shoes. For eighty-five dollars, the sole should be of another less slippery material.

Good News/Bad News: The good news is the color of this shoe is magic for me. The bad news is that it's not the color in the picture. The blue shoe is actually the color of brand new indigo blue jeans, not faded light blue jeans. Somehow, this shoe matches my teal dresses too, so there must be some green in there as well. Very comfortable, and true to size. Coveted size heel for serious walking. Love at first sight and a happy accident.

These shoes are very comfortable and look great. I'm more than pleased with them. I was concerned from the picture that they color might be too light but when they arrived (right on time) they somewhat darker than picture would lead you to believe.

Wonderful, marvelous shoes that look cute and feel great. I don't think there is any breaking in period at all. I might wear them to bed because I like them so much. They do not look like old lady comfort shoes but they feel like old lady comfort shoes. YAY. I am usually an 8.5 and the 8 fits perfectly.

Love this sandal! So comfortable and versatile. I wish it came in more colors as I have the black and brown versions. I have had one set for a year now and it is wearing great and just as comfortable as the new ones in black that I just got.

Absolutely perfect sandals! They are the most comfortable pair of shoes that I own, hands down. They go with everything. I feel like I could wear them to dance in, to run in, to do cartwheels in. Extremely comfortable, like walking on pillows. The straps fit perfectly - no cutting, no tugging, absolutely wonderful. I came here just now to buy another color, I love them that much. Absolutely worth every single penny!

I really do love these sandals. Super comfortable. I am EXTREMELY disappointed to discover that the sole on one of the shoes has completely cracked all the way across, after less than a year of wearing. Furthermore, out of that year I have only worn them for about 3 months. These shoes are too expensive and well made to had such a defect. Does anyone know if Born has any sort of guarantee on their shoes?

These are the most comfortable sandals I have ever worn. I wore them day and night for two weeks in N.Y. walking about 8 hours a day. They look great with both shorts and dresses. After wearing them constantly for two years I did buy another pair because they just weren't new looking anymore. I keep my first pair for knocking around in shorts to the store. Highly recommended!

These are very comfortable sandals. I wear them for work with dress slacks, but not with weekend clothes. The heel height is just enough to make them dressy enough for work outfits, but very stable. I have been ordering 8½ or 9M in most sandals and wear 8 or 8½ in most closed shoes but the 39/8 fits perfectly in these. I often have trouble with little toe corns rubbing in a lot of shoes, but not these. The straps are soft, wide enough and supportive, but not at all tight. My only complaint is that the style in person is a little less current than I would have preferred, which was not that evident from the photo and I almost sent them back, but the comfort totally won me over to keep them. These are definitely a fair compromise between sensible shoes and stylish ones, though they are a bit more on the sensible shoes side. I walk back and forth all day in an area where the sidewalks are uneven, and these were totally comfortable from the get go and I never turn my ankle, as I do in many sandals. I wanted to hate them, but they have become my go to shoes on days I need to walk around a lot in heels.
