Børn: redefining footwear

Born Boots at Garnet Hill

For over 20 years, Børn has been reinventing footwear. Here are the top three ways Børn designers continue to innovate and craft unique shoes.

#1: Hand-selecting the finest leathers
Børn footwear designs are crafted with rich, premium leathers that are selected for their exceptional softness, comfort, and durability. The leathers are either burnished or specially treated to achieve an aged patina, giving each shoe a distinct look and feel.

#2: Designing shoes for every occasion
Wedges to short boots to ballet flats, Børn shoes come in a wide range of styles and feature an assortment of artisan details — a brushed-metal color, hand-cut tassels, embossed motifs on the soles — that make each shoe a work of art.

#3: Using their signature hand-stitching technique
Børn shoes are handsewn using the signature Opanka hand-stitching technique. Skilled artisans sew the upper, insole, and bottom of the shoe together, in a way that makes the shoe flexible, extra-cushioned, and incredibly comfortable.
