Very happy with this boot by B rn. It's well made and of soft leather, and perfect to wear straight out of the box. Very comfortable! I love wearing it with leggings and a dress in the winter. To protect the nice leather, I sprayed it with a water repelling spray. Thank you Zappos, for shipping to us Active Duty military members serving overseas! You're the best!

I absolutely love these boots and I get many compliments on them. They are the combat boot style, but not so clunky - the sole of the boot is not as thick as most combat boots, which gives them a more feminine look. They are extremely comfortable as well, and I can stand/walk in them all day.

These are an elegant combat boot crossed with Victorian style. I absolutely love these beautiful, soft-leather in pewter shade! They fit so incredibly well, if you have a thinner foot. They are not chunky. The metallic color allows them to go with just about everything too! And they are true to size, as well. I wouldn't suggest them for areas with snow. They are great for southern CA, as the leather is thinner. This is one of the reasons that I love them. They are great for cooler desert weather.

This shoe is like wearing sneakers...it is so comfortable. The leather is soft and the design stylish. I get so many compliments! I wear a 6-6 1/2 and I took the 6 in this shoe. The leather was a bit tight at first but has relaxed and conformed to my feet and ankles. It is warm and very comfortable, a definite go to shoe for everyday!

I happen to love born shoes. I've never had a pair that didn't feel great on my feet and wear like iron. These combat boots are by far my favorite. The leather is smooth and very soft...they just mold to your feet after a few wearings and you barely know you have them on. I had no break-in period at all. They were comfortable from day one. And, they are stylish...go with virtually everything from skinny jeans to leggings to skirts and dresses. These boots do not disappoint.

Love these, I have wide feet and they are still perfectly comfy, and I have wide calves but they adjust easily with the lace up closure! So cute with knee socks.

I can't rave enough about these boots! From the moment I put them on, I fell in love with them. Not only do they feel fabulous, that look awesome. The first day I wore them, I walked a mile to the train station and was on my feet most of the day at work. Then I walked a mile home. Perfect. The worst thing is I have a hard time not wearing them all the time. In fact, I have them on right now. My other shoes are beginning to take it personally. I wish they came in black. If they did, I would wear nothing else all winter long. I will say they are wider than expected. I've tried Borns on before and they were always too narrow for my poor wide feet. Not these boots. Plenty of room in the toe-box where it counts. I'm wearing thick winter socks and there is still room to move. Again...perfect. People...buy these. Born...make them in black. Please.

These boots are soft leather and look fantastic! They are by no means meant for hard use, but for around town on a fine fall day, they're gorgeous and comfortable.

I am in love with these shoes. They are so comfortable and the quality is great. I usually wear a 7.5 to an 8 in boots, and I bought these inn the 8. They fit perfectly, with enough room for thicker socks if I need them. I highly recommend these boots. The quality, style and comfort are exceptional.

I love these shoes. I needed something that I could wear to work, that were comfortable to have on all day but could navigate slippery mountain town sidewalk; these totally fit the bill. I have the brown but would order them in black in a second if they were available.

I ordered a 6M; the box said 6M; however, inside the box was a 10! Check that the size going into the box matches the size on the outside of the box!

I have never ordered shoes before on line and figured with Zappos great return policy that I couldn't go wrong. Shoes were exactly as I imagined and all of the reviews were most helpful. The leather is on the thin side, but makes for a great, lightweight, comfortable immediately broken in right from the box shoe. I ordered my true size 8 1/2 because my big toe always pushes against the edge of any shoe and the fit is exact. The arch support is as stated - moderate, just a slight bit of cushioning but they feel entirely comfortable. Love these shoes!

I have found The Boot, and this is it. This year I decided to give up on the cheapo boots in this style that I manage to wear out completely between October and March every year. I tried several pairs to no avail and this was my last attempt before going back to the style I've bought three years in a row. Hooray! I really like the fact there isn't a zipper, they do take a little bit longer to put on, but I think they look better without the zipper and it is one less thing to cause rubbing when walking all over. These required zero breaking in for me and I've ordered another color because I love the style and fit so much.

I was disappointed to find that the boots are made in China - but, at this price, what could one expect? Despite their place of manufacture, the leather is soft and the shoes are very comfortable. The color is definitely not common, yet flexible, and the style makes it a fun, everyday, running errands type of boot. I am pleased with the purchase.

Very comfortable, from the moment I tried them on. Cute and stylish. I ordered a pair in my regular size and a pair a half size up. I kept the larger size and recommend that you order a half size up.

I ordered these boots in a size 8 which is my normal size, but they arrived and were too big so I went with the 7. I was a little worried when I first wore them that they would be too small, but as the day went on they got more and more comfortable. I love the dark grey color with black or blue jeans.

Very comfortable boot. Stylish with skirts, leggings and under jeans. The grey color is neutral and a good compliment to any color of colthing. Wish the heel was a bit higher. Overall a great looking comfortable shoe for walking.

I love these boots. Seriously love them - the color and the style are wonderful. If they'd have had a bit more arch support in them, they would be perfect (that's the reason I dropped a star on comfort). I bought a size up because to fit an arch/metpad support in them and the fit is perfect. First day I wore them was a long work day and my feet were happy the whole day.

Leather looked so cheap. I double checked the tag to make sure it was even real leather. The boot was very tight over the arch of my foot as well, but fit in length and width, which was very odd. I'm very disappointed.

I absolutely love these boots. They are super great quality, the color is a luscious grey and they are very comfortable. They also look good folded down, as the inside material is a nice grey patterned contrast. Well worth the money and, as always, Zappos rocks! They are the best at customer service of any company that I have ever worked with. And that is no joke!
