Meticulous attention to detail-combined with fresh, innovative styles-is what Born is all about. And Opanka hand-sewn construction forms the comfortable foundation for Born's distinctive designs. For more than a decade, Born has been redefining casual footwear for discerning women and men. Born's combination of handcrafted styles, premium leathers and fine details have attracted an intensely loyal following. Born's special Opanka hand-sewn construction technique hand sews the upper, sock lining and outsole together in a single process. Not only does this method make Born shoes extremely flexible, it also creates a natural cushioning effect. As a result, the underfoot conforms and rebounds with every movement, providing a consistently comfortable environment. Works of Art. It's a concept Born embraces every day.
