Just what I need, great-looking flats to replace my heels.
The quality is wonderful: all leather inside, sole and edgings. The velvet shimmering and beautiful. I got the Burgundy and the Paisley Velvet, both gorgeous, both will be great with slacks.
I am normally a 7.5 - 8 shoe. The size 8 in the Burgundy was perfect, but the Paisley Velvet too large. So I sent for another pair in the Paisley Velvet in a size 8 and received a slightly smaller and better-fitting pair. To make them a perfect fit, I stuffed a little tissue paper in the toe. That brought the foot back a tad, and made the heel of the shoe hold the foot perfectly. - Interestingly enough, the second pair was a darker brown Paisley but same velvet material, very handsome, so I was very, very happy.
These are my first encounter with Born shoes. I will be looking out for more.
