I wear an 8 in Born's slip on sandals, but I'm normally an 8 1/2 or 9 in closed toed shoes. I took the 9 in this to have it feel comfortable. The heel is a neat shape, although with its convex curve, I wonder if it will get scuffed when driving. They are higher heels than I usually wear. I'm usually not comfortable over 2 1/2 inches, and these felt like almost 3 inch heels. I almost, almost kept these, until I tried on the Gentle Souls More Rupert, which felt like slippers in comparison, so I went with the Gentle Souls instead. Of the Born Sabrina, the Box Calf is shiny. Not patent leather shiny, but very shiny. The brushed brown was wrinkled and looked cheap. The black napa leather was more of a matte black finish and was the softest leather of the 3 Born pumps.

These may have been okay in black, but this brown "color" is hideous. Another reviewer wrote that the wrinkles in the leather made the brown version look cheap...she was right. Not only does the shoe look cheap, but the color seems to be printed onto the leather, as opposed to dyed. Does that make sense? If I could just find a great pair of brown heels, that would be great.

I wish I could give the other reviews a review because based on the recommendation of others I went a half size down. I religiously wear a size 8. Many reviewers said they went anywhere from .5 to 1.5 sizes down in these shoes, so I ordered a 7.5. My foot is so smushed, my arch barely touches the shoe at all and my toes are curled over. Nevertheless I needed them before flying out for a funeral and now I have no choice but to keep them and hope they stretch. They look great and I know had I ordered my correct size, the fit would be perfect. Great height, not too high, but just enough to give you that lift...about 2 inches. Super cushy insole.

These shoes are beautiful in person and uber comfortable. I usually wear a 7.5, but these slipped on my heel, so I will try a size down. Buy these if you want a stylish heel to wear all day without the pain!

Worth the money for the comfort of wearing a heel with padding and looks great with a suit. I thought that the toe was a little more snug than other shoes I've ordered at the same size.

When I first put on these shows, they felt like the most comfortable shoes I'd worn in a while. After a few hours of walking a couple blocks here and there and wearing them in my office, I still found them to be fairly comfortable but not quite the perfect shoe I thought they'd be. They're a tiny bit too long (but maybe not enough to go down a half size) so I'm using a shoe insert to keep them from flopping (slightly) in the heel. I've now worn them at least 4 or 5 times (each time for 10-12 hours) and after a full day the sides of my feet hurt a little. (It might be that the discomfort comes from the fact that I'm slightly contorting my feet to hold the shoe on when I walk.) They're certainly more comfortable than most 3 inch heeled shoes, and I'm still hoping that after another 5 wears or so, I'll want to wear them all the time, but I'm sad to report that I'm not quite there yet. Still - they are cute enough and comfortable enough to walk a mile in without too much discomfort.

Loved the look and color of these shoes. The toe box was a little tight but would probably stretch out a little. Had to send them back because the my heel slipped out of them.

I absolutely loved these when I first bought them, but they have worn out in many ways subsequently. Now that it's a few months later the heel is peeling and there have been several spots I've needed to fill in as the exterior has ripped off.

Very comfortable and the print is neutral enough to go with my professional dresses or suites. There is a slight gold overlay on the print which isn't captured in the photo. It makes them look more polished. I received several compliments on them. Of note, I wore these on the first day to a large conference I was hosting. I knew I was going to be on my feet for hours, but the power went out at the hotel and with all the adjustments, moves and other circumstances, my day in these heels was much longer than expected. They did great. I never took them off until I got home. Great job, Born! I ordered a pair in black that night!

I ordered my regular shoe size according to feedback on reviews. They were fell off my feet. I went down 1/2 size and they were perfect. Zappos made all of this happen is just a few days. They rock and so do these shoes (which come with a shoe bag by the way)!

These are nice work shoes--very comfortable (considering they are heels) and I like the rounded toe since I have big feet (pointed toes make them look even bigger). I wear a 10 and the size was just right for me.

I got these for both work and casual/dress wear. I like the height of the heel (I am tall, so usually wear flats or wedges so I don't look like Bambi walking for the first time), and it works well with pants, jeans, and dresses. It is definitely more of a casual dress shoe (I got in the black nero color, which is not quite patent, but does have nice shine), but will work well for me. They are not as comfortable as I was expecting - I can see where my feet will hurt after a couple hours of wear, but are definitely more comfortable than other heels I own. I sized down to 8.5 (usually wear 9), and fit is perfect.

The Born Sabrina is so soft and comfortable. Did stretch a little, but not a problem for me. I stood for hours the first time I wore them. Love them, and love Zappos.

Comfortable nice looking heel with great cushioning for your foot. I especially liked the almond toe curve (I am not a big fan of sharp toe heels). The only thing that was strange about these was they were at least half a size too big. My size is 6 - 7 and the 6 had to be modified with heel inserts, etc. to make them fit.

Yes! Finally found a gray heel that is comfortable enough to wear all day at work (I'm wimpy when it comes to having uncomfortable feet). I love the almond toe and the slightly curved heel is different and cute. Very wearable and highly recommended!

I almost never write reviews, but I adore these shoes so much I've already bought them in two colors and am planning on getting two more colors. They are incredibly comfortable and I'm able to wear them at my standing desk for hours with no trouble. They were true to size for me, and they are just beautiful! They are the perfect heel for me. I cannot recommend them enough.

Absolutely love these shoes! I bought them to wear to a job interview - I don't wear heels all that often and I needed something that looked professional and was comfortable and easy to walk in without looking frumpy. These shoes have tons of padding and are extremely comfortable. My heels slip out of every shoe, but with the gel heel inserts they were fine. They fit true to size.

Beautiful shoes, unfortunately the size 11 (43) are too big and slip off my heels. The 10 was too tight. Wish Born made half sizes!

Beautiful shoes, unfortunately I had to return as they were too small. I usually wear 10.5 which Born does not make and the size 10 was just a bit tight in the toe, although 1 heel would slip out. Will try the 11 if they come in stock. Nice solid shoe, though. Like the heel and the shiny black leather.

fantastic shoes! Purchased to have a comfortable dress shoe to wear with suits and work wear. these fit the bill. broken in from the first wear. the heel is large enough to be stable and shaped well enough to look good. wish the other colors were better as I would buy more pairs of these.

Very comfortable work shoes. Can wear them all day long, even though I usually don't find high heels very comfortable. I had to return the first pair because they were too big. The next pair was too big too, but I kept them because the next size down would've been a half size smaller than what I normally wear. I have wide feet, and these were perfect in the width!

This is a great shoe. If you are looking for a sensible work shoe that is comfortable and has a little bit of style, then you will like this shoe. I will look for more in this series.

This is a great pump. It is extremely comfortable. The styling is conservative without being frumpy. The heel is the perfect height and it's not too skinny to the point where you fall down and look stupid. I work for myself and only need to "dress professionally" for client meetings and presentations. Nonetheless I need to be comfortable and relatively stylish at the same time. I've tried the "high end" designer pumps and the "mid-range" designer pumps. This is the best I've found and I am extremely happy with them.

I bought a pair of brown Sabrina at a retail store and liked them so much that I ordered a 2nd pair from Zappos in the black patent leather. The patent leather is a bit stiff and there is a break-in period. After that these were as comfortable as my brown pair. I really love these shoes - heel is just high enough to be stylish with skirts and dresses and low enough to be comfortable without looking frumpy. I'm in heels for work and trade shows - these are perfect for both.
