I have to admit- I suspected earlier reviewers were exaggerating. But then I received the shoes, slipped them on, and could't even get close to fastening the strap. And I don't have a high instep at all! Great shoes, typical Born quality but clearly defective- I would be amazed if there's a human foot on this planet that could wear the pair I received. Very disappointing.

Simply a gorgeous pair of boots. Very well constructed and true to size. Comfortable and versatile boots will work with almost anything I'm wearing. I had to snatch a pair when I saw them, even though it's too warm to wear them now! I can't wait for September.

These are typical Born shoe quality and are pretty cute. 8.5 is becoming the best size for me so I tried the 9. Length wise it was the right choice. The width was ok but there wasn't a lot of room to spare. I worried a bit about rolling off of them. What finally convinced me to send them back was realizing that the straps at the wide part at the back of the shoe were quite loose making them sloppy to walk in and increasing the likelihood that I would misstep and possibly twist out or slide my toes off the sides.
These might work well if your feet are wide in front of the ankles.
