GIVEAWAY – Born Shoes

MY REVIEW

1If you haven’t owned a pair of Born shoes, here’s why you should:

  • gorgeous styles with tons of fabulous texture
  • fresh & funky colors (including metallic)
  • quality construction (hand sewn)
  • comfortable

These 4 things are what make Born shoes so great for me. My husband is sooo hard on shoes, like he wears holes in the toes and heels of everything he’s ever owned, and he’s been wearing the same Born shoes for over 5 years. They are built to last with durable leather and tight construction and they’re so comfortable too.

born water lilly sandal

I had a hard time choosing a favorite because they are all so beautiful with so many interesting and unusual details, colors, and styles, but I finally settled on the Water Lilly sandal to review because they’re so beautiful. Aren’t they just beautiful?!?

I don’t usually like flip-flop style sandals because the little toe thing hurts me, but I figured these would be made of leather and wouldn’t be a problem, and I was right! I’ve worn them everywhere the last few weeks and haven’t had any uncomfortable rubbing or blisters. And they’re supportive with a rubber and cork sole.

These sandals are a little on the narrow side which is perfect for my feet. They also come in size 11 AND have a little bit of a heel but not too much. All my favorite things. And that flower?!? I love it!

The Water Lilly sandal is part of the Born Crown collection  which is “A little sleeker and smoother. Decidedly more structured and modern. And ultimately more refined…Infused with a higher degree of sophistication, style and craftsmanship.” Agreed.

Are you a Born lover?

I love Born shoes. I’m always telling my mom to try them out, but she doesn’t dare give up her (old lady) Sass shoes. I didn’t know they made men shoes, I’m thinking I’ll have to buy the “Jackson” shoes for my husband.
