exquisite leathers & materials

Børn shoes are crafted from the finest leathers, selected for their exceptional softness, comfort and durability. Whether burnished to perfection or specially treated to achieve an aged, time-worn patina, our rich, premium-quality leathers give each design a uniquely distinctive finish.

Specialty fabrics and materials, such as natural linen and plush velvet, are also featured in select styles throughout the Børn collection.

old-world Hand-sewn comfort

In our signature Opanka hand-stitching technique, skilled artisans sew the upper, insole and bottom of the shoe together – a traditional technique with many benefits:

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

“Ultra Cushioning”
Our special Opanka construction process enables the shoe to conform to the foot and rebound with every step.

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


From brushed metal hardware to hand-cut tassels and clever accent stitching, Børn’s designs reflect an artful sensibility.

Thoughtful details in unexpected places, like the embossed natural motifs found on our hand-finished soles, are part of the inimitable Børn signature that makes each shoe a work of art.
