These boots are great! I just wore them in the slushy icy mess we have right now here in Massachusetts and they kept my feet completely warm and dry. They are very comfortable. I don't know why some of the other reviewers complained that they are too stiff. If that bothers you, you can just tie the top 2 laces loosely. I found them to be very comfortable for walking in the slush/ice/snow.
These sandals were comfortable on my troubled feet right from the start. I wore them with black socks through airports and in cobblestones European cities and then all over the UAE without socks. It was all good. The adjustable straps in 3 places make all the difference.
I wore these all over Eastern Europe on a fall trip -- they kept me warm, cozy and comfortable plus I got a ton of compliments on them!
Good boots, lots of room in the toe box which is what I was looking for since I have bunions. So easy to put on and off. I added insoles for more comfort.

These boots are seriously gorgeous, but sadly, not the 16" shaft circumference advertised. For reference, I wear a 7.5, and I have 14.5" calves. I considered having a cobbler stretch the boots out but didn't want to take the risk given the price point.

This is a great shoe. Fits perfectly. Feels incredibly comfortable. Absorbs the shock of my walking and light running.

Beautifully made boot, love the lace up. It's easy to put on but still gives you a nice fit. Really durable rubber sole with great traction. I ordered a size up, like many of the reviews recommended, and it gave me a lot of room in the toe, but as the boots are super narrow, I can't imagine my normal size fitting. So I too recommend sizing up. All that said, I'm returning my pair as they gave my ankle on a blister. I definitely think this problem is particular to the way these boots fit my feet - there's a spot where the stitching hits my ankle bone and it's only on one foot that it's an issue. Alas, can't comfortably wear them, but only for that reason. Would still recommend them to others.
These boots are absolutely super comfortable. Greatly wide enough for my little wider feet. The heels are not too high and the wedge let you comfortably wear them for all day long. I usually wear 6,5 in boots and heels and that is what I ordered and fits perfect! ( I am only 6 in sneakers and sandals though.) And not to forget that they look so good too. I ordered them in black also.
My 4th pair of Born shoes. Durable, comfy, stylish. Looks great to office and with jeans. I highly recommend them over Clarks. High quality shoe. I'm hard on shoes because I wear them out to job sites and do a lot of walking in them. I have found these to be the most durable.
Reviewer: Messed Up Feet
Just received these today. Was pleased right out of the box. Nice looking shoe with decent arch support. I have neuropathy and comfy, quality shoes are a must have. I was looking for a roomy shoe in an extra wide width and these seem to fill the bill. I wear orthotics that cost more than the shoe by far. They are a little stiff out of the box but I assume that is just a matter of time. Nice, waterproof, leather shoe with a sneaker type sole. Hopefully they live up to the Rockport name and last. Not the shoe I would recommend to a serious outdoorsman but for me, they seem just fine. Remember, I have only put these on today, day one! Zappos customer service seems great and the two day, two way free shipping is a nice bonus! These shoes are actually lighter than my New Balance cross trainers. Hopefully, I don't find any reason to return these.
