I might have had better luck with these if they came in half sizes. The back trap doesn't do much to keep the sandal on, and for me, the heel was a bit too narrow. I ordered the gold color witch was more speckled in person. To be fair, you can see the color inconsistency in the closeup shot. The peep-toe was tiny and you could barely see my toes. The material was soft and felt very high quality. Just for me, the size and style were off. Had to return.

I stand all day, so I need shoes that are very comfortable. These shoes are perfect, the leather is super soft and I'm able to stand at work 8 hours without my feet hurting. They look nice too, received many compliments.

I could not possibly be happier with these shoes. They are perfect. I have them in the black and now I want the other colors too. I bought them for a trade show where I worked on my feet for about 10 hours two days in a row. Normally at the end of the night, I am ready to collapse and/or beg whoever I can find to massage my feet. This time, my feet were not even bothering me. These are even more comfortable than my favorite born flats. I absolutely love them!

Beautiful and extremely comfortable. I was looking for white leather however I kept this pair because of their comfort. They look great with skinny jeans and maxi skirts!

These are great comfortable sandals. The only problem is that they come in full sizes, I really am a 7.5 but the 8 was way too big and the 7 I can get by. I love them.

I really like these shoes! The color was perfect and the size was right on. I cannot wear high heels, unless the front is elevated, so these work perfectly for me. They are very comfortable and provide moderate support. They are very pretty shoes. The first pair I ordered had a black spot on it. I called Zappos and they sent me another pair the very next day and even gave me a discount off of my next pair because I was inconvenienced and disappointed! I absolutely love Zappos!

I got these in black and they are super cute & very comfortable. I was able to walk in them all day with no problems and I'm not used to wearing heels. The incline is very slight but the platform type bottoms give you height.

Sexy and beautiful but... Either put a non-slip cushion on the insole of the shoe or on your foot. I walked quit a bit and made the ball of my foot a little sore. Otherwise I would give these shoes five stars all around.

I wear a 9-91/2 in most shoes. The 9 was just fine. Not for dancing, but very stylish especially with a maxi length. I have a low instep and the fit is good.

I absolutely love these. I bought them for a trade show...I was on my feet all day walking around a show with heavy bags on my shoulders...typically by the end, I'm in excruciating pain due to how much my feet hurt...with these, I was comfortable and ready to walk around town all evening! They're also incredibly cute and I get tons of compliments on them. Love them!

Love this shoe! It's very light and easy to wear. You get the height from the platform but don't feel like you are actually wearing a heel. The only thing you need to be aware of is that the very end of the shoe is very tight on your toes. I almost didn't get these but as I have worn the shoe it has stretched to fit my foot and I'm so glad I decided to keep it. Will be wearing these shoes for a long time.

I love these shoes! They are insanely comfortable and fit my 8-wide foot perfectly. I think if you didn't have a wide toe box, they might be loose (so in that sense, I think they are "wider" than marked but that's a good thing for me!). I have been wearing them all day with utter comfort; no breaking in required.

Agree with some of the other reviews that for a narrow foot the straps are just a little too loose. I loved the look of the shoe but I felt like I could easily slip out of it. For a wider foot, it might fit just right.

I'm kind of shocked to see so many great reviews - the straps are in the most awkward place and hit right on your toes. Which is a shame because these shoes would have been fantastic.

I ordered the Bianco. They are supercute and comfortable, but they are definitely not white. They are a nude color quite similar to the cork color. Looking at the photo, I'm surprised it's the same shoe. It's a bummer. I'd keep them if they were white!

I wore these yesterday for the first time and I have to say they are more comfortable than my sneakers. I absolutely love them. It's great to have a beautiful shoe and so much comfort.

Great shoe, very stylish. I didn't give it 5 stars because the straps are a bit wide for me, my feet are a little narrow. Probably the most comfortable wedge I have ever worn!

The shoe is true to size. The color which looked white in the picture, and the name of the shoe color means white, is really an off white. That was a little disappointing, but I kept them anyway, and they look great on.

I ordered up a size based on reviews. I have a wider foot and when other customers recommend going a size larger, they're usually right. Not so here, I'm returning it for my regular size. It might not work either as this shoe doesn't come in half sizes. Otherwise, the shoe is pretty and seemed comfortable.

Extremely comfortable shoe with great heel height. I can be on my feet all day with these without any discomfort. Probably best for women with average to wide feet. Mine are slightly narrow and the Born tend to stretch and get a little sloppy.

Very beautiful flattering design with the bonus of comfort...if only I could find a proper fit. I have several Born style shoes, all size 7's. The size 7 in this style was too short and much wider than the others I own. Going up a size would solve the length problem but make the width problem so bad that all the sole inserts in the world could not correct it. Sadly, had to return them.

These shoes are extremely comfortable - I did not have to break them in at all. I got them in a 7 since that is what all my Born shoes are, but these seem just a bit smaller. If they were made in a 7½ I would have exchanged them just so I do not feel like my toes are peeking over the edge.

These are very cute shoes that are comfortable. But, if you have narrow feet these may not work for you. The back strap is not adjustable and is too loose for me. I wish they came in half sizes. I am sad to send them back, as they are so pretty on the feet!

These are cute shoes with a weird fit. The toe straps cut in to toes. The back strap is too loose to the point the shoes feel like they are going to fall off. They are unstable to say the least, this was after trying two different pairs in the same size. A shame, they are some of the cutest shoes that I have seen by Born, which is my favorite brand. Born, please get your act together, you can do it. I generally love your shoes and know from your history.
