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.

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.

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.)

This sandal is comfortable and stylish. The heel gives it a somewhat dressy look. I walk around all day and my feet and legs are well supported without any aches or pains. I typically wear a 10 W and I ordered the 11 medium and it fit perfectly so I would say the sandal runs a little short but on the wide side. Very satisfied with the comfort and look and it is well made.

I am in my seventies and I have MS. Balance and support are crucial to me and to my surprise these "comfort" shoes do the job. Love them so much bought another identical pair, I know I'll wear them a lot. Minimal dowdiness factor in a very comfortable shoe.

I'm disappointed in this shoe - it's much more "clunky" looking in reality than the picture indicates. I thought I was getting a more dressy shoe, so these will go back. Also, please pay attention to other reviewers comments about sizing. I usually wear a size 9 (40), so ordered an 8 and a 9 because of the reviews. The 8 fit perfectly and was very comfortable, just much more casual than the potential wedding shoe I'm looking for.

These are really great sandals, the foot bed is well padded, quality stitching, a nice soft brown color, comfortable heel height, and pretty style that can be dressed up or down. They don't pinch anywhere and the adjustable strap makes the fit customizable, can't ask for more.

These are the sandals of my dreams. I wish they came in more colors. I have the blue, and I will say it is much more navy than it looks in the picture. These are so comfortable! The little heel is just high enough to look nice for work and pretty with skirts, but these feel like a flat, comfort shoe.

I put these on, and they were comfortable right out of the box when I tried them on. I decided to wear them the next day for an entire 10 hour day at work. It was like having my feet on air all day. I love the way they look on my feet, just the right amount of heel and very well balanced, so I feel comfortable, secure and sexy. Nice!

I love these sandals. I literally took these out of the box and started wearing them without any "breaking in" time - they fit like a glove and feel like I have been wearing them forever. They are extremely comfortable. I love Born sandals. Great for work, play, whatever - they never disappoint.

Love these sandals! Comfortable from first wear and able worn with something casual or a little more dressed up. If you're a half size would definitely go up a size rather than down.

Wonderfully soft and squishy footbed, and not too sticky. Leather is a bit stiffer than I expect from Born. Definitely a bit narrow.

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.

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!

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.
