I love Born shoes and boots. I have many pairs of their boots and booties, however, this particular shoe was uncomfortable because my feet kept sliding out of the end of the shoes. They were rather flimsy. I believe they needed more of a platform under the base and toe area of the shoes for the heel height and construction of the shoe. I know that more platform would have helped me, because each time I would take a step the toes would slide out the end of shoes.
