Julianne: 5 Things You Need To Know

Julianne: 5 Things You Need To Know

A profile of our best-selling flat.


Who: Julianne


What: A round-toe flat with a cushioned footbed, crafted from supple full-grain or buttery suede leather.


Julianne is more substantial than other flats of its kind. So many of us are used to flats with thin footbeds, and Julianne is an exceptional exception. She has a rubber outsole, ideal for teachers, or anyone who spends the bulk of their days on foot. This flat is also made using our signature hand-sewing technique. Because it’s so lightweight and flexible, you can easily fold them up and slip them into your bag after your commute.


When: Julianne has been in the our line since 2013.


Where to wear: Julianne is an ideal shoe for work, weekend errands, and everything in between. With a silhouette so versatile, you can get away with wearing it everywhere, with just about everything. Slip it in your purse before going to a winter wedding, and slip them on once your heels start killing you. Everyone will be too busy dancing to notice.


How much: $90.


Why: Julianne is a simple ballet flat; the kind of shoe that everyone loves, but not everyone has in a version as comfortable as ours.


Here’s what some of you have said about Julianne:

These flats were just worn the first time in a choir, standing on my feet for 6 hours….no pain and no blisters. LOVE Born shoes They are true to size and are like wearing slippers with support. My arches love them too. – Sue, MI


I absolutely adore these shoes I’m a city girl so I walk almost everywhere I need to go and these shoes are both comfortable and stylish enough to suit every situation.  – Elspeth, CA

julianne appreciation

In fact, so many of you love this shoe, we were compelled to create new, exciting versions of it.


Julianne Floral combines two quintessential marks of the Born brand: comfort and a love for natural beauty. The leather flower that adorns this flat is a callback to many of the flowers we’ve done in the past.


Julianne Perf looks the same as the classic version, except it’s dotted with cool perforations. It’s great for someone who already has the Julianne in a few colors, loves the feel of the shoe, and wants something special.


And now, for Fall 2018, we’re introducing the Julianne Knit. This stretch knit fabric is one of our favorite fabrics coming out this season; it’s both supportive and offers cushioning by flexing with your every step.
