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 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.

These are very comfortable, and the color is true to the picture. Nice quality leather. However I agree with other reviewers that they do run large, especially in the toe area. I wear a 9 in all other brands of shoes and that is what I ordered here and since there was not a half size option. I am afraid that the size 8 would be too short. I will keep them since they are pretty and will look nice with summer shorts, dresses etc. hopefully they will not stretch.

I received the shoes in such a quick amount of time. I am usually an 8 1/2 and since everyone said they run large I got the 8. They were perfect! So comfortable right away, the leather is so soft. I am 5 10 and I don't want to be much taller so the heel was just the right height. Great shoes, I am so glad I bought them in black and brown. They are going to be my summer go to shoe! Thank you!

My born Belinda sandal is so SEXY-CUTE! It fits true to size, but all of born shoes do and i love that. I've not taken them out on the road as yet because it's snow & ice now in MI. But walking throughout my home is like walking on clouds. Love them!

I absolute adore these sandals. They're comfortable enough to wear all day. They're elegant enough to wear out for the evening. I only wish they weren't so bulky for packing purposes when traveling, as they're not practical to wear through airport security.

Very comfortable and cute shoes. A little too clunky to be totally stylist, but you can get away with it if trying to pack on vacation or if just need walking shoes. So comfortable. I have these in brown and also have a similar style from a couple years ago (full wedge heel) that has lasted through rain and wear and is still comfy as ever.

This is a cute sandal, and comfortable for the first few hours on your feet. But for some strange reason, Born decided to etch the foot bed of the shoe, even though when the shoe is on your foot you can't see the design. The etching bothers the bottoms of my feet so that they are sore after wearing them for a time. Otherwise, the shoe is fine if you are only wearing them for a short time. Wearing them to work for an 8 hour day is not too comfy.

These are very comfortable, right out of the box! They may not be the cutest shoes...frankly,, I little fuddy-duddy old lady sandals...just a little bit... :) But, for me, comfort wins, so I will keep them... They look good with a sundress and with pants...

This is the first time I tried this brand and I did based on all the other reviews. To my surprise the shoes fit great. I did go up to a size 9 instead of my size 8 or 8 1/2 but they fit perfect and are very comfortable. I purchased them in black and they are dressy enough for me to wear to a wedding I will be attending this September. I have flat feet and it is very difficult for me to find shoes so I am so excited that these fit me. I highly recommend.

I call these my miracle heels. No kidding. I walked about two miles in them the week after I got them and I was fine. I wish Born made them in a closed-toe version so I could wear nothing but these shoes to work things. Sizewise, listen to the other reviewers and size down a half size if you're in between whole sizes. (Full disclosure: I was an 8 until I had a baby, and after that I was an 8.5, so it may be sensible that I sized down rather than up.)

I knew they would be big, so I ordered a half size down and the fit was perfect, but...Ouch! Heels and balls of my feet are throbbing after two hours at the fair. Back to Danskos.

For some reason the right shoe is much tighter than the left. It looks like the leather is shorter. I'm ordering another pair to compare them and keep the best fitting. I have others like this in Navy and they match, tight wise.
