You can tell a fashionista by the lining of her boots, and the Born Zelia boot shows clear alliance with tailored style. This vintage military-inspired women's casual boot features a full grain, burnished leather upper, a breathable leather and fabric lining, as well as a full lacing closure which makes it terribly easy to form a cuff that reveals the menswear suiting textile lining. Reliable comfort and support come from a cushioned footbed, midfoot shank and a flexible yet grippy lugged rubber sole. The burnished patina and cap-toe styling of the Born Zelia boot complement a contingent of looks in your civilian wardrobe.

Love These! Comfort and Style

2 out of 2 people found this review helpful.

I went back and forth over whether to go for these boots because I wasn't sure if they were practical enough for regular wear, or a little too trendy. I'm so glad I went for it. They are so versatile in that they can be folded down and worn with a cuffed skinny jean, or worn laced up under pants for a more subtle look. The first time I wore them I walked around Brooklyn all night and there wasn't even a hint of a rub or blister. It felt like I was wearing sneakers and they looked amazing. I love them!

These boots are classic. Although they remind me of a man's style, the boots aren't too masculine. They are good all purpose shoes- you can wear them out, to work, to run errands. It is that boot that you expect to have for years. They seem a little thin and I worry a bit that they may wear quickly, but I can't yet say. I have a high arch and a pronounced bunion so shoes are tricky for me. Although these aren't the most cushiony boots, they are stable enough and with a wide enough toe box that they do not cause me bunion pain and I can wear them for long periods of time without aching.

they are delightful!

I really love these boots. They are very well made, beautiful color and the leather is of good quality, I've been wearing them with dresses and long skirts. They look gorgeous and stylish, and they are very comfortable. I love 'Born', they always come out with something delightful - that combination of classic somewhat conservative style, genious simplicity, great quality and expensive look and feel. The only thing I would add if I was to design these boots would be side zipper for easier in & off, and 1.25" heel. My shoe size is 9.5 for most of brands, but from 'Born' size 9 is perfect. 9.5 would be too big. Bottom line, I'm very happy with this purchase, considering that I'm very selective and do lots of returns. I can see wearing these boots for years.

Cute & fun

These boots are so comfortable I almost forget I'm wearing them. Really. I get a lot of compliments on these boots & wear them with jeans, leggings, & longer skirts. I got the gray & really like the versatility.
