    I like the style and look of this shoe. The 7-1/2 length was good for me as was the width. I have really narrow feet but this shoe narrows a good bit towards the toes. It is too tight across the top of my foot near the toes. I wonder if in time it would stretch some.

    Wow! I have a narrow foot (more in the heel and instep than toe box) and these fit great, also femme/sexy compared to my usual Born. I will give them a day or two's wear then order another color. At first try around the house, the straps were very soft--no rubbing or chafing. I would have worn them to dinner had the temperature not dropped 30 degrees. I am ecstatic to find these.

    While the shoe did have the padding and arch support I'd hoped for, the top of the shoe cut into the top of my foot and made these a no go for me.

    So I loved these right out of the box. Very comfy, loved the style and the fit. But Ive worn them 5 days and there is a spot on the sole of the right heel that is already worn down smooth which is definitely worrisome. At this rate Im concerned a hole will be worn in there very quickly. Hopefully I can update this review in a few months with how they hold up. Its a shame because I REALLY like the shoe!

    Wanted a basic flat. Love Born. Excited about the reviews of this shoe having arch support. I wear 11 but based on reviews discussing size ordered 11, 11w & 12 to compare how they felt on my foot in the Noche, Brown punched, Grey and Panna cotta. Panna cotta TOO gold for me. Liked the other colors, 11/11W WAY too short & tight! 12 felt okay. Wore around the house a bit but the upper edge elastic is scratchy and the back rubbed my heel. Concerned prolonged wear will result in the blisters & discomfort that so many of the reviews complained of. Decided if I'm paying this much for a shoe I want it to feel pretty much perfect out of the box, not just "ok". That coupled w/blister potential from the heel and the top they are all going back. On a good note, arch felt pretty good--better than "moderate" but I wouldn't say "excellent". Also, as always, Zappos ROCKS! ordered 4:30p yesterday & were delivered by 4:30p today.

    I so wanted these to fit, but like the other comments,they run big in the depth of the shoe causing it to slip in the heal. I was hoping the straps would hold my foot in place, however there is too much "play" in elastic.

    This is a comfortable supportive ballet shoe. However, I would not recommend this shoe for people with high arches (like pes cavus) who are seeking arch support. The arch support in this shoe is a bit low, but is probably fine for those with non-high arches.

    I ordered these in what I thought were wide width, but they were marked medium width. They were the only Born that came up in a search for wide width, but a zoom-in on the photo showed M width. Not sure what's up with that. Way too narrow, had to return.

    Comfortable, practical and great quality...can't ask for more. Love these clogs!

    Comfort is ok, but style is lacking. It's just a very plain shoe. Not sure if I'm going to keep or return.
