Shoe Review: b.o.c. by Born Lesa Clog

I found some black Born shoes on clearance in my size even for under $25 at Gordman's - Woot! They are not the Born Toby or Born Haddon that I originally pined for, but for a fraction of the regular price, I will settle with these b.o.c. by Born Lesa Clogs. Also available from DSW for $54.95 (regularly $80) in Brown and/or Red Patent. When I was trying them on at Gordman's, another customer warned me that they are horrible on ice and did not recommend them at all saying she owns a pair and … [Read more...]

Kim covets Born Toby & Born Haddon

I love my black Born shoes, but I want a new "updated" pair of casual black shoes. I was hoping my Uggleboo Swedish Clogs would take their place, but I have yet to get them to fit my foot right.

At first I told her they looked liked "old lady shoes" to which she replied, "I am an old lady." Touche. But after hearing her rave about how comfortable they are (and she is very picky about the comfort level of her shoes), and then how she'd like to buy another pair in black (the above is taupe), I agreed that I would probably wear them, too!   The next … [Read more...]

Born to Love Black Born Shoes

My new favorite brand of shoes (for this month anyway) is Born Shoes. My friend had a pair of black Born Sutton casual shoes that I envied so much I just had to have my own pair. They are a tad tight, so have to wear thin socks, but she said the leather will stretch in time. Then yesterday, I went shopping at the new Village Pointe Shopping Mall in Omaha. I cannot believe I had never heard of the DSW Shoe Stores!! I was in pure Heaven! Heaven, I tell you. And I found 2 more pairs of Born … [Read more...]
