Beautiful shoe but it runs very small. Had to send them back but will order a larger size.

How I loved the style of this shoe. My right foot is slightly narrower than my left foot and it kept sliding, rubbing against the leather band in the front causing blisters. I could have possibly overcome this (despite my seeming inability to form callouses on my hands and feet), but the angle of this shoe is torturous. While it is made very comfortably (padded) and appears to be of high quality, the angle between the heel and the toe pitches you forward so that the majority of your weight rests on the ball of your foot. I so wanted to make these work, but I know, while these sandals are very stable, your feet will still feel like they've been in a cheap 4 inch heel all day. I felt that ache right in the middle of my foot during my yoga and pilates and recognized it from all those old high heeled shoes I wore once then dreaded ever putting on again. These are supposed to be a most-of-the-summer shoe, so, failing in basic comfort, I have to return them for another Born sandal.

These shoes are extremely comfortable and versatile. I've worn them with jeans, shorts, and dresses. They can work for a casual look, or they can be dressed up for a more dressy look. It's very rare to find shoes that are very stylish, that have height, and that are comfortable all in one!

Cute and comfortable. Looks great with jeans, and I've also worn them to work with dress pants. Most high healed sandals start hurting my feet after a couple of hours, but I've been able to wear these all day with no issues. I have the brown ones--thinking about ordering another pair, possibly in red.

I ordered the espresso brown Hyrah wedges. I had a problem with the left shoe having a much looser fit than the right, as always Zappos wonderful service is fixing my problem. I ordered these 4" heels to wear with all my Miss Me & Rock Revival jeans that are so long, they are the perfect jeans sandal! They are made well & so far they are very comfortable (as most Born shoes are). I expect I will soon order the red & black as well.

These shoes are high, but very comfortable on my 50 year old feet! The wide straps keep it firmly on your foot and you feel the cushioning immediately. It is not heavy and was comfortable for walking. Recommend!

These Born slides were absolutely high quality and flattering. In addition, the foot bed was awesomely padded and comfortable. The only, and I mean only, reason I sent them back is that they were just too high for me.

These are very well made shoes and have the staying power for durability!!! For the height they're very comfortable with their plush padded footbed as well. I always like a bit of a platform since you can get away with pulling off heel height with ease of walking since I'm a shorty. All around A+... glad I caved in and made the purchase. I was a bit skeptical like the other reviewer said about the rippled/ridged heel affect. However, you can't notice it on the black ones. At least that's the ones that I ordered. Thinking of getting the other colors as well. Awesome mule/slide!

I ordered this shoe in a 10 and I received an 11. I think I will like it in the correct size. The 11 is big on me.

Best wedges ever! Loved them so much in brown, I ordered them in black as well. I do a fair amount of walking throughout the day at the office, and my feet don't tire at all. I've even taken my Labrador Retriever for a short walk while wearing my Born Hyrahs!

I had been looking for some cute wedges for some time! I'd tried a couple of Born styles (Maldives, Emmy), but neither really quite got it right. These do!! I have a tiny reservation about the grooves on the wedge, but I can live with it because the design fades into an overall look that is adorable! The Hyrah is comfy, too! There is a good amount of cushioning, the wedge is not too high nor too low, and they look great with jeans! Can't wait to wear with denim shorts and sashay into Spring!!

I am a huge fan of Born shoes of any type. These shoes are true to size and very comfy. The padding is super soft, feels like walking on a pillow top! Taking them out of the box, they looked higher than I thought but are very easy to walk in and stay in place on the foot. That's important to me in a wedge since I've had a broken ankle. The red is a true red & gorgeous.. Try these, you'll love them!

Nice shoe. Well made and lots of cushion; however, it's tight in the toe area and felt like it would be difficult to break in. Born makes a quality product but this shoe wasn't for me. Thanks Zappos!

I love that I can have height and comfort too. The toe on these is a little tight but that will stretch a little and then they'll be a 'five'. I found them a little small but still fit my size 9. They are like walking on a cushion.

These shoes are super cute in the pictures... This doesn't make them cute on my size 11 feet. Very clunky looking. Straps felt like they could have done some damage with a nights wear. Going back...

The foot bed is very cozy and the shoe is very cute. I have own many Born shoes over the years and loved them. This fit however isn't working. The toe straps are tight and rubbed a serious blister and the foot arch strap is too loose. So I have to return them. :(

I normally wear a size 9 but ordered the 10 because Born seems to run smaller in their sandals. The right shoe was noticeably more narrow than the left. It started to blister the top of my big toe shortly after wearing. Had to return. The footbed was very comfortable and they were very cute and nice quality. Wished they wouldn't have hurt my toe.

I was really looking forward to this sandal arriving as I love wedges for their height and comfort! But the straps come up so high on my foot, they look like high heeled, geriatric sandals...remind me of old men shoes. I had to return them. Dang.

Had to buy 1 size larger. While these shoes are beautiful, they were not very comfortable. I've bought Born shoes in the past and the comfort is usually amazing...can walk for hours..not this pair. I ended up with a blister and it felt like it was rubbing the skin from the bottoms of my feet. So disappointed.
