Take Comfort in Quality Materials

Every season, you can depend on Børn to use high-quality leathers and materials. Our leathers are exceptionally soft, comfortable, and durable. Whether burnished to accentuate its natural richness, or treated to achieve a timeworn patina, our premium-quality leathers give each shoe a one-of-a-kind finish.

Specialty fabrics, such as natural linen in the spring and plush velvet in the fall, are also abundant throughout the Børn collection.

Take Comfort in Old-world Shoemaking Techniques

Børn was founded on the need to create a comfortable shoe that was also lightweight. We achieved this by using our signature Opanka hand-stitching technique. This traditional technique has many benefits:

The hand-stitching technique allows the shoe to flex and move with the foot for a natural feel.

"Ultra Cushioning"
Our stitching-based construction process enables the shoe to conform to the foot and rebound with every step.

Commitment to Comfort
This signature stitching process works together with our specialty padded footbeds and wide, roomy toe boxes to immerse the foot in comfort.

Take Comfort in Artistic Details

We believe every shoe is a work of art. From its outsole to its upper, each shoe is meticulously designed.

Each one of our outsoles are customized with a unique pattern, sometimes with color that matches the upper. Clever accent stitching pulls the shoe together and coordinates with the leather. From brushed metal hardware to hand-cut tassels, each detail is carefully considered. Go ahead and inspect a pair for yourself. You’ll find a charming detail everywhere you look.

Take Comfort in a Brand That Cares

It’s our goal to make the world a more comfortable place, and that begins with making every day a little more comfortable for you.
