These boots are comfortable, as I would expect from Born. I don't feel I needed to break them in. I ordered gray and must admit they have a brownish tinge. I'm ok with it but it's something to know about.

I have this pair in black. Brown color not as expected but will keep as they are comfortable and a great price as always from this company. Sierra Trading post is tops for overall quality at a great price and easy with returns.

These boots are great leather boots! I am 5' 7" and the boots hit just below the knee, which is perfect! The footbed is fitted, yet I find the calves to be loose when wearing with a skirt (not as fitted). Yet, will be perfect if wearing over pants. They are extremely comfortable and warm!

I actually watched these for over a month, waiting for a sale that would get the price within my reach, and was SO EXCITED when it finally happened!
I purchased the "Gray"; if it really is "gray", it's a very dark charcoal gray--I consider them perfect to wear with black and gray. The leather shaft is a nicely "vintage cracked" leather, and the foot area is smooth. I generally wear a size 7 and these boots will fit perfectly with tights; if you like to wear thicker socks, buy a half-size up from your regular size.
The buckle accent is nicely trendy without being conspicuous; behind it is a gore-shaped piece of elastic. I believe I could easily fit cropped pants--even cropped jeans--inside them if I so desire. I have an average-size calf, and the width is neither too slim or too wide; I am considering adding another hole to tighten them up for when I'm wearing tights and a skirt.
Overall, I AM THRILLED with this purchase, and excited to have a trend-conscious but classically styled boot to wear for many years to come. You will NOT be disappointed if you invest as I did!

It's summer, so I haven't worn them out yet--but around the house and they're gorgeous and seem very comfy.
love the style, and the fit...just a tad snug in the calf for my 'athletic calves', but they should stretch a bit since they're real leather.

The size is correct. I take an 8 and the 8 fit perfectly; however, the black/grey color was actually more of a deep brown color. The material is stiff. They went back. I'll keep looking for a true black boot. Thanks Sierra for your easy returns.
