Works of Art. It's a concept we don't take lightly. From our choice of materials to our unique construction, see why each shoe we make is a masterpiece of design. Born uses the old world technique of "Opanka", a hand-sewn construction in which our richest leather, leather lining and shock absorbing foam is sewn together to ensure the foot is wrapped in pure comfort. DRYZ™ unique technical components work effectively together as a "total comfort" system inside any shoe. This system prevents moisture and heat build-up - the two primary villains that create odor causing bacteria and an unhealthy environment inside your shoes.
What makes a Born shoe a work of art? For one thing, each shoe is a masterpiece of design. Old World techniques, like our patented process for hand-sewn construction, produce the world's most comfortable, flexible footwear. And by using the softest, most supple leathers we can sculpt our designs down to the smallest detail, ensuring superior fit and exceptional styling. The result? Each shoe is a master work of craftsmanship, comfort and style.
