These are fabulous shoes. I am on my feet for 12 hour shifts. These are the first shoes that I could wear all day without back pain.

Love these!! I picked them at TJ Maxx. Like other reviewers, I found they run a bit small. I usually wear an 8, but the 8 1/2's were a little loose. I adjusted the strap, & now they fit perfectly!

These are very comfortable and great looking shoes. They felt great from the moment I put them on. They are also versatile, and I have received a number of compliments.

Great shoe...a bit narrow but I used shoe stretchers and they were perfect. With the buckle I call them my pilgrim shoes.

Extremely comfortable and good looking, just like all Born shoes. I love them but they run small so order a half size up!

I find Born shoes to be very comfortable. This one fits like a clog. Good support. Found this shoe in a local store and had to go up a full size from my normal Born size.

Really like the style of these but my toes hit the front edge of the toebox. Like the price too! I usually wear an 8 wide; this pair was 8.5 M. May need to try a 9.

These shoes are nice but very narrow and run a half size small. I ordered a half size larger than I wear but they were still too narrow. Too bad because they seemed comfortable and are very cute.

I should have read the review first. I love the style but they were very small! I tried on other Born's at a store to see if the sizing was changed overall, but it was just this one shoe. I typically run an 7 or 7 1/2 but the 7 1/2 hit my toes and I am going to order an 8 and hope they fit. But they are out of stock!

I bought this shoe thinking that it had all the style of a boot, but would have all the comfort of a shoe. Somehow it looks more boot-like on-line than it does on my foot. Also, the sizing is way off. I normally wear a 6.5 or 7 and the shoe that fit me is an 8. It's very narrow, but as other comments mentioned, opening up the strap with the buckle really helps. It is quite comfy, but I've since seen another Born shoe with a style I might have liked better.

Same issue with too little. It was at least 1/2 size too small, but since I couldn't order larger not sure if someone should order a 1/2 or whole size larger than a normal Born purchase. I didn't have an issue with the width, as others who purchased apparently did, but I did think that the back of shoe could have been just a bit taller to fit over the heel area. But since length was too short, I didn't delve too much in to this issue.

For whatever reason, this particular Born shoe doesn't fit no matter what size I try. I have many, many pairs of Born shoes and sandals which is the only brand I buy now, all of which fit me perfectly in a size 8. I tried the Born Glendell in an 8, which was too small, a 9, which was was far too big, so I thought 8.5 would be the magic number. But no, it feels just as small as the size 8 did, so I'm giving up on this particular style of Born, which I really wanted to fit.

These are not typical of Born shoes. I should know, I have owned probably 25 pairs over the years. I always buy a pair or two before I travel (leisure) as I know I'm going to be doing a lot of walking and want to look good too. First, they run narrow. My foot isn't even wide and it took some time to stretch, maybe 2 weeks and they are still a bit snug. I can't wear anything but thin socks. Secondly, they are not comfortable for long term wear, hours at a time, doing a lot of walking. Your feet will ache. They do not have the cushiony-pads that Born shoes typically have. They would be the perfect shoe if they were good for walking. I have walked miles in other Born shoes with no complaints. These are very different. Look great, will hurt like hell.

I love Zappos and get most of my shoes from this site. I look for style and extreme comfort. I love the look of these shoes but they fit tighter than a medium width. I am a very average 9.5 med width and these were too small! Order a size up!

Love these. Have another pair of Borns in an 8.5 that fit perfect. But this pair is a full half size too small! Going back.

I've always liked born brand, but these are kind of disappointing. My feet hurt at the end of a day, and they are kind of tight. I'll keep them, hopefully they'll stretch out - they are leather.

These shoes are so cute! Unfortunately they are also very narrow and seem to run small. Even after releasing the buckle, they were extremely tight across the top of my foot and put pressure on my toes causing them to go numb. Really loved the look and wanted to keep them! But returned them due to many discomforts!

I should have read the reviews more closely. I couldn't get this shoe on at all though I ordered it in 1/2 size larger than my usual size. They did look very cute and stylish. Rethinking ordering based on the reviews.

Such a cute shoe! But a shame it's very narrow and runs small. Had to send it back even though I loved the shoe. Very tight across bridge of foot even after loosening buckle.

I had high hopes as I have another pair of Borns that I like. Not only were these a half size too small (which I had read in the reviews), but also too narrow. Alas, since there isn't a wide option these are going back.

I've been wearing the Born Toby for a couple of years in every color. I thought this would fit the same but it runs more on the narrow side. I had to send them back.

Born has changed how their shoes fit. I ordered the same size as always but even the shape of the shoe is different and it doesn't fit well. This shoe has no elastic on the sides and is stiff but I like the style. Sorry I have to return it.

These shoes are mis-sized. I usually wear a size 9M, but ordered a 9.5 because the current manufacturer runs smaller in sizing. Put them on and after 1/2 a day my feet were in agony.

Unlike the other Born shoes I've purchased recently, these were not true to size and were too small for me. I'd recommend ordering a half-size larger. Also, I didn't notice in the online picture, but I don't like the style of the toe. It has a pronounced toe with a significantly slanted edge towards the outside of the foot. I know this is the popular style now, but they remind me of a rounded elf-shoe, so no thanks.
