I got these to replace the Mirabelle Danskos that I had for years. I wore out my first pair, my second pair recently broke, and they don't make them anymore. The new Dansko styles don't hold a candle to them. So I tried these because they seemed similar in style--feminine, but in a relaxed way. They are *very* comfortable, with the exception that I wish the heel was just a little lower. I'm tall (5'9"), and I like a little heel, but these are a tad high for me, and they feel a bit less dressy-casual-crossover to me because of it... their straps are relaxed in style, but the heel seems a little high for them to be as dressy/casual flexible. In any case, I am totally keeping them because they look great with jeans or skirts or shorts and seem very well made. I'll be stalking Born sandals more in the future, now that Danskos have been consistently disappointing me for the last few years, style-wise and quality-wise. I'm very glad I gave these a try, and am tempted by their other colors (I got black).

I love this shoe! It was comfortable right out of the box. I usually wear a 9.5 but because of other reviews, I ordered a 9 and it fits perfectly.

Very attractive sandals -- I particularly like it that they don't have the ugly contrast stitching that most other brands with similar styles seem to have. However, the heels are somewhat higher than shoes I've been wearing the last few years, and my unstable right ankle can't cope with the added height. So, alas, I must return them. (Other than the heel height, I found them quite comfortable.)

I could never be happier with this purchase. The moment I put on the shoes, my feet felt the comfort, and I have been stepping and not looked back :-). This is one of the best purchases I've made in a long time worth the money. Keep up the good work with making comfortable shoes. Thank you.

I'm usually a 7.5, but since these shoes don't come in half sizes, I bought an 8. They fit perfectly and are the most comfortable shoe! There was no need for "break in" time as they were ready from the get go!

Straight from the box comfort! These became my go to sandal from day one. Basic and kinda retro without being too trendy, they go with everything - sundresses, cutoffs, jeans. These are my second pair of Borns and they only make shoes in whole sizes, but ordered the 7 even though technically I am a 7 1/2. The fit was perfect, and gotta Iove the Born sole and support - you can walk all day in these!

Absolutely delicious! Super soft leather, flexible cushioned heel, that gives you a slight spring in your step, while providing excellent balance and support. Makes my feet look pretty without sacrificing comfort. The blue jean color is lovely and neutral (a great substitute for brown, or beige). I'm a solid size 8 with a medium width, and these are exactly true to size. Thinking of getting a second pair in green. Definitely recommend.

Very comfortable. I wore them all day on their first day out and I was fine. They're not quite as comfy as similar Danskos (which is my shoe of choice), because there's not as much arch support -- but they're so cute that I can live with them. I usually wear an 8 1/2, but I got the 8 and they are fine - there's a wide toe box which I need, *and* they nicely fit my narrow heels.

Best shoes ever. I'd buy them in every color if I had the guts. Maybe I could just be that girl who wears the same shoe in different colors. I wonder how long it would be before anyone noticed.

Very, very comfortable shoes. I can walk or dance in them! They're cute for casual/work wear too. Only thing is the strap could use another hole or two, but I can get that done at a shoe alteration place.

I love this shoe! I live in Florida and I can wear it year round. It is so comfortable that I purchased a second pair in the orange. They are easy to walk in, very stable and it looks so much better than a sandal. Customer service was great to work with when it came to size. Thanks!

I was looking everywhere for comfortable, mid-heeled sandals in coral to wear to a wedding. Everything was uncomfortable or the heel was too high. These Born sandals are fantastic! The color is a beautiful, light coral and the straps are a soft leather. The instep is padded and so comfortable, I know I will not be kicking them off under the table halfway through the reception! The heel is a well made wood look and is very easy to walk (and dance) in. I plan to order this shoe in other colors. It will go well with my dress, but also with jeans and capris. They are a good buy!

I first saw this sandal in black and instantly fell in love with it. It's perfect for a fashion forward male like me, as it looks like a European clog, and it goes great with casual shorts or dressy khaki slacks and jeans. I bought it in size 11 and it fits very well. Break-in time was just a few hours and the straps conform perfectly to my feet. The only criticism I have is that the insole has a raised or embossed design that irritates the soles of my feet when worn without trouser socks or sheer knee highs. But with additional wearing, it's becoming less of a problem. Thanks for carrying these sandals, Zappos! And thanks for the fast delivery!

Like others have said, this shoe is comfortable out of the box! Good thing - they arrived, I tried them on and then they came with me during a slew of conferences where I was on my feet for several hours. I've walked up to 6 miles in the city with these on and haven't had any pain during or after. The footbed is cushiony but gradually deflates a little over time, which is expected. The style is generally cute for such a comfortable sandal but when I want to look summer "cute" I still wear my strappy wedges; in other words, these are nice, but they aren't quite urban chic (if that matters to you!). I am contemplating getting the brown/red versions to go with other outfits that don't quite go with green.

I just returned from France and Germany, where I walked over 30 miles in these shoes including one day in the rain. They were amazing without even breaking them in beforehand. They looked great with dresses, capris, and shorts and left my feet in fantastic shape! I can't recommend them enough for serious walking and comfort! While the style is not cutting edge, they still look very nice and classic.

I bought these to have a comfortable, and not too ugly, pair of shoes for walking on an upcoming trip to Europe. I have a lot of heel pain so need good arch support. These sandals are like hugs on pillows! They were immediately comfortable and I've been wearing them everywhere! Although not quite as stylish as summer sandals I like to wear to work, they're cute enough that I can wear them with jeans or casual dresses.

These shoes are AWESOME!. Wore them right out of the box and they felt comfortable and light. I feel like I could run in them. I wore them on the Red Carpet of an Awards Show and they were fantastic. Very true to size.

Everything was perfect with this shoe except on the right shoe the ridge near my toes is really hard and raised with stitching and when I walk it really hurts my second toe. I am hoping that with more wear it will lessen. It only affects one toe one one foot so I am not sure what to make of this. Otherwise they are really comfortable.

These are comfortable, inexpensive basics. Essentially, what you see is what you get. The composite sole, however, makes these extra lightweight. For teaching work, these fit the bill by giving me a little "lift" without getting too glam. I typically wear a 9.5 but ordered a 9. Although my toes are a little close to the edge, the width is just right.
