This bootie is pretty comfortable for a shoe with an uncushioned sole. There does appear to be some arch support, and it fit my wide forefoot really well. The only problem is they are out of stock in my size - the 8.5 was too long, and I am solidly an 8. The grey leather is beautiful, and soft - great looking shoe.

I was looking for a nice everyday work shoe that I could wear with dress pants or with jeans. I'm on the short side so I usually like a little heel. These are super comfortable and totally cute. I got compliments the first time I wore them. Another Born pair of shoes that look great and are comfortable.

I love these shoes! I am usually between an 8.5 and a 9, so I ordered a 9 and they fit perfectly with socks. They are extremely comfortable and are my new go-to shoes. They work well with skinny jeans, dresses for an edgier look, or even bootcut jeans. I'm so glad I bought these shoes.

Great stylish shoe! Very comfortable with plenty of room in the toe area. I have bunions and this shoe does not irritate them at all. The color is neutral and blends with any outfit.

These Born booties are wonderfully comfortable! I ordered my usual size and even though on the first day it was a little snug, they have stretched out just right after a day. I love the 3" heel and the fact that I can walk around all day and my feet don't hurt. The color is a perfect neutral and matches with gray or brown. I am very happy I ordered these shoes. Zappos is awesome too -- fast shipping and they gave me a price adjustment as the price went lower within 10 days of my initial purchase.

Perfect shoe/boot! It molds to and the foot. Also it is comfortable! It looks so good on; skinny jeans, bootcut and skirts. The color is right on. The size is true as well.

I love the look, color and quality construction of these shoes. My only issue is the tightness around the middle where the ties are. They can only be loosened slightly. The fit is snug. I have medium width feet. I have only worn the shoes twice and hope the leather will loosen up. It usually does. I do recommend. I usually wear an 8 but I bought a 7½ because of reviews I read. The 7½ is the right size for me. I would have ordered the 8 if I had not read the review.

This is a gorgeous, classic shoe with typical Born support. It has a nice wide toe box that accommodates a bunion, high arch, and enough depth for difficult feet. Yet, it looks sleek, stylish, and timeless. Favorite shoe!

I have these in the Snare color and just ordered a pair in the Canoe color - love them!!! I have a high arch and sort of a bony foot, and these fit just great. I ordered my normal size 6, which is usually just a bit roomy in Born, and they fit perfectly. I can walk all day in these at my job, on a tile-on-concrete floor, no problem. Born is consistently stylish and comfortable.

I absolutely love these shoes! I never would have imagined wearing heels this high (or of any kind, for that matter) for so long and still having feeling in my toes. I traveled from Boston to New York, partied all night in Brooklyn, and returned the next day with only these shoes. I never felt uncomfortable! The style is super versatile (I wore them with jeans and a short dress). The color is a neutral compliment to any style/outfit of any hue. I feel that I can run a mile in these shoes! I am a size 11, sometimes leaning into 12 so I really appreciated that these were a little over true size. That gave me the extra space that I needed. This is probably one of the best purchases that I have made. Thanks, Zappos!

For me, this is a new classic from Born. The fit is perfect, and it looks great with both pants and skirts. This color is a great neutral too.

I have many pairs of summer shoes from born and wanted short boots for the winter, these are great. The fit is perfect for me and the heel height is what I wanted. I ordered the gray and now I am ordering the brown.

I love Born shoes because their size 11 really is an 11 (they're European 43 -- a lot of places pretend 41 or 42 is 11, which just isn't true). These fit really well, and look great; I don't have particularly narrow feet and they don't feel too tight. My feet were tired walking a long distance in them (there's not a whole lot of padding in the sole and then, they do have 3 inch heels). Very pleased overall.

These have become one of my go to pairs of shoes. All of my pants are hemmed to 3-4" heels and these have become a comfortable alternative to wearing skinny heels. I also bought them to try with dresses, but I am still not completely sold on the look. I have narrow feet and these fit well in the footbed, but I cannot get the top of the shoe as tight as I would like since the laces do not go up that far. Overall they are very comfortable and the coloring is very unique. They look and feel like a high quality shoe. This is my first pair of shoes from this brand and I would definitely purchase others.

I so wanted to like these shoes, however the fit just isn't very comfortable. It's tight across the middle of the food but then too loose around the heel so it slips up and down when walking.

I already wrote a review on these boots (very comfortable and cute, and actually very walkable 3" heels!) but I wanted to note that the Canoe brown in person is much duller than the picture on the website. The picture makes the boots look more warm/orangeish colored, but this pair is a very dullish grayish dark brown. Too bad.

Great shoe, well made and super stylish. I wear an 8.5 in most shoes but this one runs 1/2 size large.

Be aware that an 11 is a 43 European! It seems so many shoes these days are calling an 11 a 41, that I automatically order an 11 in shoes online. But I was surprised to see that the Born Fina is actually a 43, and thus too big for me! I'm returning them to get a 10, which I hope fits, because this is the only 3-inch heel I've ever worn that I feel solid on! They are super cute too, with either pants or skirt (how I like to wear them!). And the leather is nice too. It's rare to find cute shoes in gray.

I wear a 9 1/2, ordered a 9 1/2 and could not get them on. I have a wider foot and a high instep, but I have always been able to wear Borns comfortably. I loved the color (Snare) and the style but opted for the Heath Wren by Clarks instead.
