Women's Born Leather Ankle Boots
I love these boots and have been looking for this style and color for several years. Most I looked at had too high a heel.
Wore these the first time and almost killed myself in a Taco Bell. The soles are very slippery! As long as I'm on a textured floor or carpeting, they are fine. Smooth cement floors or any smooth floor, they're killers. Now I have to be so careful when I walk in a mall or anywhere with smooth surfaced floors.

Great in some ways, but . . .
I have debated about whether to keep these or return them, and have decided to return. There is a lot to like about them--they have a nice snug fit, the heel height seemed quite comfortable, etc. But the pseudo distressed finish of the brown is not attractive--it definitely looks fake, plus the pair I received had some ugly spots on the side of one shoe. I was also afraid that after wearing them all day at work I would find that my toes were feeling pinched by the somewhat pointed toe. I would have worn these with socks and jeans--but if I was wearing thin socks or hose, the snugness possibly wouldn't have been a potential concern. Don't get me wrong--I do like a shoe that hugs my foot--thank heavens "slides" are going out of fashion. But I had reservations about walking all day in these, plus the finish was not what I expected, so . . . they are going back.

Love these boots!
These boots are beautiful, well-made, and stylish. They are so comfortable, I bought both colors. They can be dressy or casual, depending on the occasion. I have worn them out to dinner as well as grocery shopping.

I was looking for a pair of COMFORTABLE booties with a wearable heel height, contemporary leather styling, and versatility for casual or dressy casual occasions. These are it! I have problematic feet--flat arches with bunions, and these are very comfortable! I wear a size 8M, and ordered my size in black. These look really cute on, and make me feel young (I'm 57.) These are pricey, and I had a hard time finding my size, but Norm Thompson had the stock! I highly recommend them.

I never ordered ankle boots before and was absolutely amazed at how comfortable these are. There was no "breaking in" period needed - I put them on and was on my way.

Most comfy shoes I have!!!
I love these shoes, heel height is great. The foot bed is really soft too. Great fit, looks good with slacks. I'm pleased with them, may have to get them in black also (can't have to many shoes!!)

I expected Born would be comfortable but I am still a bit surprised at how nice these are. The fit out of the box is like a firm hug. With a bit of heel this fit imakes me more secure. The elastic gore on the inside and corresponding zipper on the outside of the shoe makes them easy to put on and adjusts for my high arch. They look great with pants and skirts; the slim profile is quite flattering to foot and leg. I expect I will wear these often, and for a long time with the Born quality construction.
