Fits true to size. I ordered the black, the red, and the beige one. The black pair seems tighter in the toe ring than the red pair. This is just barely noticeable. I think the shoe is very comfortable, lots of padding in the foot. Great for walking.

This is a very pretty and comfortable shoe. Will unfortunately be returning it. Not good for people with bunions. Have had strappy sandals that don't cross right at the bone before. Am hoping someone makes some pretty sandals for those of us who don't have perfect feet.

Cute sandal but it feels like my foot is spilling over the actual foot bed (the shaping reminds me of an insole that you can cut to size). The straps were comfortable and a nice nude coloring. Disappointed that they need to be returned. If my foot didn't spread upon standing they would have been perfect.

I wrote earlier, stating that I was going to return these sandals because they are so wide. However, ManMur's Shoe Store (in Raleigh, NC) was able to take the straps in. I really like their appearance, so I'm glad that I got to keep them, even though it added $25 to the cost of the sandals. They are really comfortable now!

I would have bought them earlier in the season had I known I would love them so much! I wasn't sure I would like the color but it goes with just about everything.

Love them! I love how they blend into my skin tone - it's not often that the sole is a nude color too. They don't slide off easily because of the toe ring, which is great for walking or driving. The size 11 ran a tiny bit large, which I was thrilled about since I am a size 11 1/2 and no one makes that size. I would buy these again!

Love these shoes! Really comfortable on my "bad" feet. I usually wear FitFlops, and these are a nice change into a lower profile sandal. Not a ton of support, but lots of cushion.

These are awesome! Very comfortable, the straps are high on your foot so they don't flop around too much. Just what you expect from Born.

I bought this shoe for a summer work shoe. It fits fairly well. It is true to size and appears to be well made. I would buy this again.

I usually wear a 39, but this one is a tad small - I kept them anyway. The straps and toe ring are very snug at first but soften comfortably with a couple of wears and still stay well secured to my feet. The heel bed is on the narrow side which makes it dressier than most flip-flop type sandals. There is no arch support like comfort sandals such as Merrells or Naots, and the heel stack is a hard rubber so no real cushion for any length of time spent walking on hard surfaces. Thanks to other reviews I knew not to expect all-day comfort but the neutral color (true to photo) and style were the reasons I purchased these, but I probably will not purchase any more Born products - I need more support.

I really wanted to like these shoes and they were almost perfect but the toe loop was too small for my larger toe and it kept my foot from sliding all the way to fit right. There was some thought that maybe it would stretch to fit, but wearing them until then would have been uncomfortable and if it didn't work, that would have been no good. It's too bad, they are cute and comfortable otherwise.

Why does Born not make their shoes in half sizes? I am a 6½ and the 36 was too small but the 37 was too big. Unfortunately, they are going back. Luckily, a Zappos return is so easy.

Comfortable, arch support got a bit better after foot settled into shoe. Really like them, but not for long walking expeditions. Note I have a very high arch, so all day touring is too long for this shoe. Great for running around or dinner out during the summer time.

Soft footbed, nice heel support. Wore these around the airport with no issues. Nice style and graceful design, these are nice all-around casual sandals.

Really pretty sandals and fairly comfortable. Toe strap might take some wearing in. Problem was top straps at least 1/2 inch off top of my foot, so of no use except decoration. I had ordered both the red and black, and oddly the top straps on the black ones were slightly large, but not nearly as bad as the red ones. Wonder if they had been tried on and stretched out, or just not good quality control. Red was nice color. Maybe OK if on heavier side or very high instep. Keeping black ones...hope they don't stretch out.

Like some previous reviewers, I initially thought that the tight toe strap was preventing me from getting these sandals all the way onto my feet. However, upon further review, I realized it was actually because the straps just behind the toe strap are so narrow/tight that I can't get my admittedly wide feet into these shoes. Obviously, they're going back. I don't normally have problems with Born being too narrow, but this is an exception. It's too bad, because I like the way they look and the bronze-y color would have gone with just about everything. Anyway, if you have narrow feet and long narrow toes, these shoes will probably work well for you.

These shoes fit well and feel comfortable. I just don't care for the little toe strap - it felt a little tight and I didn't like the way it looked so I'm returning these shoes. I wish they didn't have the toe strap because I would have kept them. I usually wear a size 8 1/2 and the size 9 fit fine.

I love them! They are not too wide for me and I have bunions on one foot. I always wear Born too, and these are my new favorites. I love the nude color.

Super cute on my foot and fit is perfect BUT when I walk my heel slides off to one side, partially off the shoe. So disappointed. I need a shoe just like this.

I love the looks of this shoe and it feels good on. But, the heel is too narrow! I fall off of it!! I have never had this problem before! Maybe the top strap needs to be tighter?

Length size seemed fine. Cute shoe. Apparently my little size six foot must have a freakin' giant big toe because I could not slide my toe into that big toe slot no way no how so I couldn't even get the shoe on properly to see if it was comfortable. Guess I need to put my big toe on a diet to keep up with my 108 pound frame.

The toe piece was so small, I couldn't fit my toe in it. There is no arch in this shoe at all. The sole is cut in an odd point shape that doesn't match the shape of a natural foot. If you have narrow feet and skinny toes, this is fine for you.

I really liked these sandals but the foot bed was a bit narrow for me and the toe ring was too tight to comfortably keep my foot in. I would have liked if they came in a 7 1/2. The 7 was short and the 8 was long.
