I normally love Born products, so I was really disappointed to see that the finish on these shoes is deteriorating; it's almost like it's painted on. I've had them about seven months and pretty soon will have to retire them to junk shoe status because they aren't presentable anymore. Otherwise they're a nice light little slipper.

This shoe got great reviews online (zappos) and it is very cute, loved the bronze color, just a little snazzy w/o being "shiny" and you can still wear it to the office with casual pants. But it just didn't fit my foot.....almost always 8, occasionally 7.5, the front of my foot is pretty wide, but I have skinny heels. The 8 slipped off my heel too much and the 7.5 crunched my toe. Bummed b/c I could tell the shoe itself is a comfy one The Born Truitt did this too on me, even though it fits many ppl great. Try French Sole Sloop or Patagonia Breathe if you're looking for flats, both these worked on my foot.

This is a cute shoe, out-of-the-box comfy, but it runs a little big and wide. I'm a pretty reliable size 8, but I sent it back and will try the 7.5. My heel tends to be a little narrow, so I suspect I can use a heel insert with the 7.5, but we'll see. The color is super cute, just a little dressy but not too shiny for casual wear to the office.

I ordered the brown/pewter metallic and love the color. Can be dressed up or down and the mottled effect is unusual - which I like. They're comfortable - no padding as you'd expect with a true flat - but no toe cleavage and true to size. May order more in other colors.

If they are short I suggest you get a larger size. I think they might stretch in width if needed but you might just get an unattractive toe bulge at the front of the shoe rather than a stretching if you don't go up a half size. I've had this problem with another pair of flats (not Born) that had the same soft leather. I should've gone up a half size on those shoes but didn't and ended up with a less-than-sleek appearance at the toes. Hope this helps. I'm enjoying these Stowaway flats.
