I ordered these in a green, size 6. The color was amazing, they were incredibly comfortable, and they seemed well-made. The only problem was that the front ankle strap seemed a bit too high and wide, thus being very unflattering to the leg. I don't have cankles, but, in this shoe, I felt like I did. I would only recommend this shoe to someone with very long, slender calves. I sent these back and got the Born Tinari in blue. They are as comfortable and cute, but without the calf-chunkifying effect -- I think I made the right choice!

I bought the bagpipe color. I had foot surgery a few years ago so always need a comfy shoe - these fit the bill. Nice looking with jeans. What i don;t like is it is super hard to push the strap through the loop when putting on. I think I am going to have to slide them on and hope i don't stretch out the straps. Its almost like the straps have glue on them. Too grippy. You will see what I'm talking about when you try them.

Adorable shoes, but sizing is challenging. Born, can you introduce 1/2 sizes? I'm a 9.5, but in these, 9 is too short, and 10 is too wide in the toe box (the straps gap around the toe area). Disappointed that I have to return them.

Cute shoe, nice cushioned sole. However, it seems to run a bit wide. The ankle strap can be tightened but the bottom part has a lot of sliding room which keeps it from feeling particularly secure and it feels like I could get a blister on the bottom of my foot from it sliding and not being secure. Probably going to return.

These shoes are of good quality and comfortable, but they are really ugly. There is no way that I can match them with dress.

First of all, these shoes are super cute. They are very comfortable as well. Why am I returning them? Well, it is the ankle strap. If one has anything other than the slimmest ankles, I think this sort of ankle strap creates a "cankle" look. I think on me, a more open look would be more flattering. Exchanging them for the Frederique style, which is fabulous. Oh, and I cannot say enough glowing things about Zappos customer service.

I had an chance to try these on at a local store. I was very disappointed in the fit. The sandals are really cute, however they seemed that the way the footbed is shaped it was a little too small for my long narrow size 11 feet. And forget trying to slip the extra into that buckle, it is next to impossible! Beware, it is a bad buckle.

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.

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.

At age 76, I have worn a lot of shoes. These are the most comfortable, best fit, excellent quality, and versatile shoes that I have ever owned! Although, I have lots of good quality shoes, I wear the Born Belinda almost everywhere.

After wearing these shoes for one full day I am very satisfied. They are comfortable and supportive. They didn't require any breaking in. A good investment.

I had been looking for a new Born sandal. I do not often find the style which suits me. But, the Belina Sandal has it all: quality, fit, style. It's a good basic, all-around sandal. I wore it for the first time today, and it felt perfect.

I needed some dress shoes for an event and have very wide feet, a corn on one toes and my foot structure has been weakened by 30 years as a hairstylist. I have pretty bad feet! These shoes feel great on the first try and plenty of width (most strap sandals hit my corn and don't work because they are too tight). I think I will have happy feet at the wedding. Born shoes usually are a hit with me.

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!

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!

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.

A comfortable and stylish comfort shoe. I was worried the wide, comfortable heel would look clunky, but I was pleased with how the shoe polished my look.

Very comfortable and cute. I wear them all day at a job where I'm on my feet with no pain. Definitely runs large so go down if you're a half size.

I love these shoes. They look great with skirts or pants. Super comfy. I can wear them to work and walk around all day. I'm on Zappos right now to order them in another color. (I have the rust, ordering black today.)

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.
