I got these shoes in black to replace previous black Born shoes that I still wear, but wanted to supplement. The shoe looks great with slacks and jeans. I have worn them several times since purchasing. I have had them for 2 weeks. They are comfortable and were from the first day of wearing. The heels are snug when putting them on, but that keeps them from moving when wearing. I like the soles because they do not make noise when walking on hard surfaces and feel safer on slick surfaces.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
