These are perfect for the holidays - the red color in particular (I also have the black). Born always makes comfy shoes - I wear these to work, am on my feet a lot, and they remain comfy until the day's end. For me, they are true to size.

I have somewhat delicate feet/skin, so this may not apply to everyone. That said, upon trying them on for a brief amount of time, I just couldn't see they'd become comfortable. The trim around the top edge was very very stiff, and I was surprised at the quality, considering it had Born name. I guess this is a more inexpensive line. The patterns were cute and the price was right, but that didn't justify keeping them.

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.
