Unfortunately the size 9.5 was to small and Zappos did not have the 10 so I had to get them elsewhere. I love, love, love the shoes!

Customer service was excellent. I phoned to ask how to order the larger size in this shoe as it runs small. Zappos sent me the next size up immediately and emailed me the free shipping label so I could return the pair I had within the week - but I did not have to wait for them to receive the return before sending the new pair. Awesome!

LOVE these shoes! Great quality and very comfortable. I bought the brown first and was so pleased that I ordered them in black as well. I have several pair of Born shoes and love the comfort, style, and great quality.

These shoes were so comfy the minute I put them on. They feel like slippers and they're just gorgeous! I bought them in black and would love them in gray, but I must stop the insanity.

Incredibly comfortable! I am a graduate teaching assistant and have to walk long distances across campus and stand for long amounts of time lecturing. These shoes are dressy enough for work, but still comfortable. I wear them with pants. They might look a little weird with skirts.

Love the boot shoe. Stylish and oh so comfortable. I have been looking for such for a long time. I tried it on at our local shoe store as it was a good looking boot shoe and did not want to take it off as it was so comfortable. Thank you! I am tempted to buy the brown, too!

I had purchased this style in brown from a department store for a higher price. Luckily I checked Zappos for the black style. am loving this shoe. I recommend it for jeans, slacks, and even with tights/skirts. Very attractive style.

Previous reviewers are correct, it could use a bit more padding under the ball of the foot (I added a Foot Petals pad thingy in there and it seems to help), and the sole under the left toe started to peel off after only a couple days. I may end up gluing it back down. Even with these pitfalls, I love these shoes and have to stop my self from wearing them every day to work since they are so comfortable and go with all my pants! It does not feel like I am even wearing heels. Thanks, Zappos!

If you are a fan of Born shoes and the style catches your eye you will be pleased. The comfort and quality are sound. The heel looks a bit bulky online, but once you get them on, it's nothing and the height is great. Can be dressed up or down. Very pleased! Let's not forget Zappos in this review either - the Bomb! I had these shoes set up for free normal delivery and they were literally at my front door in less than 12 hours from when I ordered them! Amazing!

I was pleasantly surprised with these shoes. I have never worn Born - I buy Dansko almost exclusively but was looking for a less expensive alternative. These were comfortable from the start and easy to wear.

This was one of my first Born purchases and I am blown away at the comfort of these heels. I've been searching for years for a comfortable heel for work and these fit the bill. I love the look of the shoe! The first time I wore these shoes was for 10+ hours and I had no blisters, no rubbing, and almost no pain at the end of the day. True to size and great support. They were a little tight around the top of the zipper, so I just unzipped them for the first two days I wore them and they stayed on without any issues. Now I can zip them and not have any tightness in that area. I'm very pleased with Born and I will definitely be purchasing more!

Beautiful shoe. Upset because it is a bit narrow for the foot that has a bunion. Really loved it on the other foot!

I tried to find boots but after trying on a lot decided I'm not one to mess with trying to get them on and off. I decided on the Born short boot because I have Born clogs and they are so comfortable. I loved the style, they fit great, true to size, easy to get on and off and the gray is a great addition to all my boring black shoes. I have some girlfriend and we all have the same size and they flipped over the shoes tonight and had to try them on and they confirmed how comfortable they were.

Great fit - I have a somewhat narrow foot. The insoles come out so I can use my orthotic insoles too. The footbed cushioning is not the best; usually with my inserts shoes still have something there so there's more comfort.

Most of the shoes I own are Born - I love this high quality brand! Compared to other Born's it was a little tight on the outside of the big toe. Luckily the shoes are leather and they have stretched to fit. I was a little surprised how thin the material was under the front part of the foot. They feel fine, but if you live in a cooler climate - these shoes won't keep your feet as warm. I love the styling! They look good with work pants, corduroys, khakis and jeans!

Like these shoes, but I thought the heel was a bit clunky for the shoe design. Too much of a muchness. Also, the "Rissa" style with a plain toe was a bit more comfortable for my admittedly wide feet.

Super cute, and the angle of the shoe is nice so I don't feel that the heel is too high, but the other person who wrote about there not being enough cushioning under the ball of the toe is right. Nevertheless, I couldn't give up these shoes, so I'll just go find some inserts. Would recommend overall.

When these arrived, they were like little presents. So cute and adorable, and the leather is soft. However, the arch was in the entirely wrong location, the ball of my foot hit in the wrong spot, and there was too much space over the arch of my foot inside the shoe. The result is that my foot kept slipping forward in the shoe causing my toes to curl up and jam against the front. Sadly, these will be going back to Zappos. I wear size 10 and my feet are generally normally proportioned--just long.
