Born shoes have been around since 1995 and are one of the leading brands of shoe manufacturers for men, women, and children. What makes Born shoes different from their competition is that they pride themselves in having a variety fashionable styles to choose from, while also being so comfortable that you would believe your barefoot.
The secret to the comfort is the hand sewn Opanka Construction that attaches the upper leather sock lining to the sole to make the shoes more flexible. Other qualities of Born shoes include keeping the foot dry and cool, while limiting odor-causing bacteria and shock with Dri-Lex Lining, DRYZ Footbed, and Leather Sock Lining. Born shoes also have EVA Midsole with Arch Support and Oblique Last that promotes healthy feet with a broad toe box that gives toes more space to lay flat and move as if you’re barefoot. The added Polyurethane Sole makes the shoe slip-resistant and even more flexible, and cushioned. These unique constructions provide you with other forms of comfort and stylish, handcrafted footwear.
Born shoes have a variety for every occasion, such as sandals, casual shoes, flats, dress shoes, and knee boots. Born’s strong attention to detail and the drive to provide you with fresh and innovative styles and designs is what they thrive for.
Full Opanka Construction The Opanka construction is our unique construction that hand sews the upper, the sock lining, and outsole together in a single process. Not only does this make our shoes extremely flexible and comfortable, but it also creates a cushioning effect. As a result, the under foot will then conform and rebound with foot movement; constantly surrounding the foot with comfort.
The Opanka construction combined with our superior craftsmanship, quality and style makes a perfect combination.
