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!

I really liked these sandals. They fit exactly the need I had this summer.... but the construction turned out to be really poor. I bought them in June, wore them about 10 times or so, and they fell apart in September. The toe strap just completely came unstitched. Very disappointing. Zappos is an amazing company with awesome customer service, though. So, I'm on the hunt for a different pair of black sandals. Not this kind.

These are very comfortable right out of the box. The footbed has a nice amount of squish to it and is non-slip. The criss-cross upper has a bit of "give" for my bunion. The only negative is the style is a a bit "old," but then again, my feet are old.

Wore these on a business trip - right out of the box! I have trouble with my feet and these sandals were great through two airports and being on my feet for hours the first day I wore them.

These are some of the most comfortable and cute sandals I've ever owned. They were perfect right out of the box and I can stand in them for hours without the fatigued feeling I get in my feet from wearing most shoes with any type of heel to them. I've become a bit of a Born fanatic over the years. The price is sometimes a bit high, but the comfort and quality are worth every cent!

I bought these sandals to wear to work. I'm on my feet all day and wanted something stylish but comfortable. I do love the way these look, and they are comfortable for about 6 - 8 hours. After that they do bother my back. I don't think it's the height so much as the change in height from ball to heel, which I'm sure is a matter of individual preference. The foot bed is comfortable. Overall I am happy I bought these, but will look for a sandal with less of a rise from ball to heel in the future.

Love these sandals! Comfortable right out of the box - able to be worn all day with no problem. I have a painful bunion, and finding a sandal that will work well and fit around that is important. These do!

I really loved these sandals. I wore them for one summer though and the sole of the shoe under the ball of my foot just cracked clean through. While these shoes are really comfortable right out of the box, they don't hold up.

I can't recommend these shoes. When I first tried these on in November, they were so comfortable, there was no question I would keep them. Fast forward to summer. The sole is made of the same synthetic leather as the rest of the upper. My feet sweat, and by the end of the day, I have blisters on the ball of my foot! Shoes this price should hold up for at least 10K steps a day. I guess I will investigate breathable adhesive linings.

Attractive with a good heel height for some walking while still looking dressing however the arch support isn't great only okay. The buckle is only half of the loop with a thin band to hold the strap which may be leather but is definitely thin. I wear these with jeans, linen pants and below the knee skirts. I don't unbuckle them because the thin strap mentioned above is hard to use and I"m afraid of breaking it. Normally I wear Danskos but they didn't have this heel height this year nor did they have a flexible quiet sole like this one.

These are the perfect shoes. They are just a little too high for my unstable ankles for the grassy venue I was going to attend. But immediately they felt like a dream; very soft, comfortable and true to size.

Unbelievably comfortable. Like an idiot I forgot my tennis shoes at the campground while on a trip to Chimney Rock NC. I walked 500 stairs up to chimney rock, 500 stairs down then trekked an additional 1.5 miles round trip to the waterfall in these things with no issues! 100 stars for comfort. I will be hard pressed to ever purchase anything but Born shoes again.

Love these shoes! I tried several styles before landing on these. I needed something between flip flops and dressy heels. These sandals are comfortable for all day wear. Nice size heel. Other reviews on these sandals and the Born brands, said they run smaller. I ordered an 8M (which is my normal size and I have a little bit of a wide foot), and feel like they fit well - without any rubbing.

Very nice comfortable sandal. The foot bed is very soft. The heel is just right for walking, not too high but has a good look to it. The front straps do not rub my toes at all which is great! and the ankle strap gives just a little security. I take a size 8B in sandals and that's what I ordered. Fit is perfect.

I absolutely love this shoe. I don't typically like any shoe with a heel, even a moderate one. This one is SO comfortable, looks great, and can easily be worn all day. It works with dresses or skirts, or in the summertime with capris. I've owned the shoe in black for over a year and it's my "go to" comfort heel. So much so that I scoured the internet until I could find the same shoe in brown and of course Zappos had it!

These shoes are comfortable right out of the box. I usually order a 7, but ordered these in a 7.5 only because the last order of 3 pair of sandals were all too small. I've had my foot measured lately and it measures for a 7. Reg width too and these fit fine. Great sandal.

I love these Born sandals! They're comfortable and the heel height is modest -- just right for Spring/Summer dresses without being too high or formal.

Oy, these are terrific! Immediately comfortable out of the box. I have a feeling these will be my go-to shoes. And they look pretty cute, too. Who hoo! Considering buying a 2nd pair in another color.

Amazingly comfortable shoes! I wore them walking around San Francisco right out of the box with no blisters! I love the heel - makes it dressy enough without being uncomfortable. I have wider feet, so didn't notice the wide toe box everyone is talking about. I'm a teacher with plantar fasciitis, and plan on wearing these all day at school!

This is a very good looking, comfortable shoe. It appears to be well-made. I have not had an opportunity to wear it all day yet. The heel height is perfect, not too high or flat.

I bought these last summer and pulled them back out a few weeks ago and they look brand new! And I wore them all the time last summer. I have a very hard time finding comfortable shoes or sandals as my feet are flat/wide and I am on my feet all day long. These were the best shoes! I can wear them all day, look reasonably fashionable and my feet feel great. Awesome!

I've had the same pair of these sandals for 2 years now and they've been very durable. I live in Boston so I'm not wearing them year round, but considering I have to replace boots that I also don't wear year round every year, I'd say these are great quality. I have them in size 8, my usual size, and my only size complaint is that the adjustable strap didn't adjust to be tight enough for me. That's fairly common for me though and is an easy fix - I just make a new hole myself. First time I tried that fix I was worried it'd ruin the shoe, but like I said, these are two years old now and are doing just fine! The footbed is getting a little worn out but they are still very comfortable and I'm able to walk long distances (>1 mile) in them. Highly recommended and I'm actually considering a second pair just in case!

Cute, comfortable shoe. However, overall review is a single star because the entire sole and platform of one shoe abruptly snapped in half below the ball of the foot after less than one month of wear. I was at work and had to duct tape it together to get through the day. Almost the exact same thing happened on another style of Borns I owned, which really makes me hesitant to recommend the brand. Bummer, because the shoes out of the box are great.
