Extremely happy with the shoes. Great comfort and they look really nice. Overtime I think they'll have a patina to them which I look forward to.

Great pair of shoes! Great feel. Look good with shorts or slacks. They do run big, so size down. Well made and comfortable for all-day wearing.

I was looking for a causal loafer which I could wear with both shorts and jeans that provided all-day comfort, and this absolutely hits the mark. The shoe fits true to size, is light weight, and super comfortable with or without socks. I highly recommend this shoe to others.

These shoes are very comfortable (almost like a warm hug for my feet). I've only had them for about a week, but they are my favorite footwear now. Living in the South, I was initially wary of wearing these shoes without socks. However, and I can't quite figure out why, these shoes breathe well, and my feet have stayed dry and comfortable (read, odor free). I wear them with slacks at work and with shorts at home. These are very versatile.

I have purchased loafers and specifically driving loafers of other brands and these feel the most snug. The fit I found was between half a size too small to just right. I normally wear an 11½ and that is what I ordered but felt really snug out of the box. Being Born brand and all leather, I expect to break them in just right after a couple of uses. They look much nicer and higher quality in person than online. I love the purchase so far. Great prompt service as always. Thank you, Zappos!

Nice well made shoe and runs at least a size large and these are too big! Site showing that you do not have this shoe in a smaller size. Will probably order a similar shoe in smaller size from Born.

Very comfortable and awesome shoes. They're casual but still okay for Fridays at work. They are definitely about 1 size bigger than normal. I am a size 10 and had to return a size 10 and 9.5 and kept the size 9.

Shoes are just what I was looking for. Did need to go a 1/2 size down for fit. Seem to breath well but haven't had them on during the heat of summer yet.

Comfortable and pretty sturdy. It would he nice if the lip in the front went out further to protect the leather. Many times with these type of shoes they get holes In the front.

Extremely comfortable right out of the box, just like every Born shoe I have ever bought. Good looking! I usually wear a size 14 and that is what I ordered, fit perfectly. And of course, great customer service from Zappos and fast shipping!

Good looking shoe. I had an old pair of Born's that were almost too big at size 14. After reading other's reviews that these also run large, I went with a 13. It's a bit tight in width, but seems like it will be fine once broken in. Hopefully my massive pinky toes won't ruin the look on the side wall. As I usually wear a 14-14.5 and these more-or-less fit, I'm marking that these feel a full size smaller. I prefer minimal arch support--these feel fine for me.

Good quality shoe. More casual than I thought - leather moccasin style. The comfort out of the box is fantastic - can wear for about 6 hours before you start to feel it without socks.

Had these for over a year now. Love the look. Very comfortable. Only complaint is how quickly the toe wears out. I've put a lot of miles on these shoes, though. I wear 8.5 to 9.5 typically. I got an 8 and it was perfect. Has stretched out over time. Size down.

It was a little snug at first but it loosened the first few times I wore them. I got the light chestnut color and in the toe area it seems a little lighter in color than the rest of the shoe, but overall I'm happy with the shoes. I plan on buying another pair in black.

A bit wider than expected. Color/finish is great! Spectators seem to enjoy them nearly as much as I do. I normally wear a 12-13, but I settled on a 11.5 for this shoe.

They are a little loose but very comfortable. It may be better to get a half size down if you want a snug fit. The material scratches easily.

I love the style and comfort. The leather quality is not the same of Born shoes in the past, however. One walk through a parking lot on a wet day and they are essentially stained from the water. Need to get some shoe polish I guess. Never had this problem with Born shoes in the past.

I ordered the Ceruleo color hoping that it was a soft shade of brown as seen in the picture. In person, it was green-grey leaning towards a light olive color. Regarding size, I ordered 14's and these shoes felt very easily a full size larger than expected. The arch support was satisfactory and shipping was fast.

Bought a size 12 but they feel a half size too big and were slipping off my heel completely, even with a heel insert. They were comfortable though with plenty of cushion, if they fit, I could wear them all day. Color is accurate to the picture.

The shoes are very comfortable. I bought one size smaller that I normally wear and they were snug when I took them out of the box. I've worn them for a couple of weeks now and they have stretched out to the point that they are almost too big. I love the look of the shoe but a bit disappointed with how much they have stretched out.

These are long for my regular size Men's 8. They look well made but the fit for me was just wrong. They also might be a bit narrow as well. The footbed is well padded and somewhat supportive, but not real arch support.

Shoe had completely separated on the front inner side after only a few months of daily wear. Not what I expected for the price. Comfort and style are great, but this shoe is not a good value at the price.
