This is a very comfortable shoe- the only thing more comfortable would probably be a super-padded running shoe. Its arch support is also very good for the style of shoe; I rated it "excellent" because there is not a "very good" option. I have high arches and it feels good but I like a LOT of support there. The sole has good traction and doesn't look clunky. For a large foot (I am size 10) it is attractive, doesn't accentuate the size. Seems to be a solidly built shoe but is not very heavy. One of the best shoes I've gotten in a while. It's my first Born and I'm a big fan now.
Felt true to size
Felt true to width
Excellent arch support
I wear a 9.5 narrow-to-medium shoe and a 41 in Naot. In Born I seem to wear a size 9 with a perfect fit in the few style I've purchased lately. The Safari Taupe color is almost the same as on my screen -- if anything, it's a bit more olivey/taupy and not a true brown -- just as I hoped it would be. Very nice leather, soft enough so I won't need any break in time. Kind of a matte/oiled finish, which I love. Look well made. My narrow heel slips only a tiny bit on my shorter foot. I'm used to that unfortunately. They feel sturdy, look slightly Western (I live in Colorado, so that's great) and will become my travel and airport shoes, if not my all-purpose slip on. I haven't had clogs lately because they're usually too heavy. These are not heavy. I like the 1+ inch heel. My husband thinks they look clunky, and they are a bit, but not too much in the darkish color. They're very very comfortable with good arch support (which I require).
Felt a half size larger than marked
Moderate arch support
Love these shoes! Have purchased several other pairs in the past and while I marked "Felt true to size", the shoe size is always a 1/2 size smaller than any other brand I own. Comfortable from day 1, stylish and durable. This brand has become one of my favorites.
Got to tell you.These shoes are the most comfortable shoes I ever had. From the first time I put these shoes on never had a problem with hurting my feet. I am thinking about getting the same shoe but different color.
These shoes are perfect for work or with jeans. They are extremely comfortable and fit perfectly. I highly recommend them.
