I wanted a pair of pink/fuscia sandals to wear with several outfits, jeans, capris, etc. These worked perfectly. I usually wear a size 8 1/2 and it said go up a size for half sizes and I did. They are so comfortable, do not hurt my feet at all. The toe post is all leather and it doesn't hurt my toes or foot. They are not to tight, too small or too big. They stay on my feet, don't flip, flop or slide off. There is about a 1' heel which is perfect, because I am short but I can't wear heels, they hurt my back and hips. These were the perfect sandals for my outfits, at the right price. I love them.

I have eight pairs of Borns from oxfords to dress boots, sandals and clogs and these are hands-down the widest Borns I have ever stepped into. I buy Borns because my feet are narrow and these were just the sloppiest, floppiest fit from heel to toe. The leather was glove-soft and they looked ok, but I can't wear them. It doesn't help that I'm moving to Seattle and the soles on these are only about a 1/4" thick so there would be no puddle jumping in them anyway. Oh well, win some/lose some. STP has one of the easiest return systems of anyone.

The leather on these shooties is smooth and beautiful, expensive looking, and the heel height reasonable (but as high as I can handle.) I did have to size up a half size to get more width at the instep. That second row of stitching is a snug area. I love these shoes, but they are for a somewhat narrow foot. I have slightly wide feet. Going up in size gave me what I needed, but could not wear with socks, only stockings/tights thickness. Highly recommend if the narrower width works for you. The price bargain for this high quality is amazing.

I have had good fit with Born in the past, so when I saw these cute ankle boots in the catelog, I ordered them. I tried 2 colors (black and grey), in 2 sizes (8 and 8-1/2). I wear an 8, but if it runs small, I might wear the 8-1/2. My foot width is M, never W. The boots were plenty long enough in the 8, but way too narrow tthrough the toe. Even the 8-1/2, which was way too long, was too narrow.
