I am falling out of love with Born shoes and here is an example of why. The leather is thin and soft making the shoe unstable on the foot. The thin, soft leather makes them feel loose even when straps are tight. This thinness is a trend I've noticed in other Born shoes in the last two years. Another way this shoe is unstable is the platform design, it is severely beveled inward. In other words the shoe print it makes is much smaller than the insole where your foot sets. I rolled to both the outside and the inside as I took a few steps around a carpeted room and didn't feel any more stable on a hard floor. Another thing is the wedge style heel, its heavy making the shoe difficult to keep on the foot. I'm no fan of this shoe, returning them. My last few pairs of Born's have been disappointing. I am looking for a new brand, any suggestions?
