I ordered my usual size in Born shoes (their US 9 equates to a European 40.5), but wasn't expecting to receive a shoe that's almost a full size too large. I walk right out of them, which is a shame. When you order, go at least a half size down, if not a full size, and they may work out for you. The shoes are absolutely gorgeous otherwise - it's a shame about the fit quality.

I love pumps by Born. I find that they fit my foot well and don't pinch or squeeze like some pumps. Many shoes tend to be too narrow in the toebox. The Barbs, like other Born shoes, have a comfortable insole and, compared to other brands of pumps, are quite comfortable. I normally wear a 7.5 or 8. The Barbs in 8 were much too long, the 7.5 fit nicely. My heels did tend slip up so I added a cushion to keep my heels in. I can wear these shoes twice as long as heels with no insole. :)

Ohhhhh...such a beautiful shoe! I so much wish I could have kept these. They look great and make you feel great but I just couldn't wear them for more than one hour. They rubbed in the toe area and were higher than they appear. So I sadly had to return them but you may be able to. Everyones foot is as different as their personality and they are so beautiful.....perhaps you should try them!
