thought I'd found the perfect replacement boot for my boots with openings on 2 sides, but the zippers on these boots were for decorative purposes only! zippers didn't even work off the foot let alone on the foot! cute boots but worthless

As the other reviewers mentioned, do not be fooled by the zipper - it is not functional and is a decoration only. I was expecting that though, so no big deal. There seems to be enough padding at the bottom to be comfortable for long-term wear, and the size seemed a little large at first but if you have decent socks on it is perfect. They look nice under some slacks, and I can imagine them being lovely with leggings as well.

Yes the zippers are decorative but that does not bother me. I also wear a lot of pull on type boots (western, harness, engineer boots) so I am used to putting on and taking off boots that don't have side zippers.
I get so many compliments on these boots, they are a fun, unique and funky style. They look great with leggings or slimmer jeans tucked in. The big zippers on each side of the boot are open to reveal the suede liner. The leather and construction is the high quality you expect from Born and they are very comfortable. I have the gray color and it is a little darker than it appears in the photo. The only thing with these is the suede liner is a little grippy when you go to remove the boot. Not a problem with a smooth sock material but with some cotton socks it is tougher.
