I just got these shoes today, and straight out of the box, they fit like a glove--as if they were made for my foot. The metallic color is sophisticated, but still stylish, however, the hue is very similar to my skin. I'm not sure if I like that, and was hoping for something that would have more pop. I haven't decided if I will keep them or not yet, but they are a beautiful shoe.

Felt great when I first slipped my feet into them, but after walking around in them for awhile, I realized they are awful! The main issue I can see is that they have no lasting structural integrity; due to the softness of the leather, the sides and back start to buckle in such a way that the shoe loses its shape. You can see the reason for the issue in the video here. If you look closely, you'll see the model's foot arch is partly exposed, and there is a gap. I think if you have high arches, like me, there isn't as much for the shoe to cling to as you wear it. And again, the leather is so soft that it ends up sagging. It sounds like I would need to try a size down to solve the problem, but that is not it.

I received these today and I could not be happier. The burnt red Amber is a go with anything color. The leather is so soft and pretty. And the ballet style makes me feel young and pretty! These are going to be great with jeans, leggings, skirts, etc. I may need another color.

As everyone else has said, the leather is very soft and supple. I ordered 1/2 size down from my regular size. This is my first pair of Fryes so I don't know if that would be consistent with other Frye purchases. For reference, I'm usually an 8.5 but ordered these in size 8. I have medium-sized bunions and heels that blister easily. The size 8 felt snug on my toes for about 1 hour, but then they sort of melded to my foot. I've never had any problems with uncomfortable heel rubbing or side gaping. Love them! They're my new go-to flat.

I wear these flats out and then re-order more. They are THE BEST. Zappos is also the best - can't beat their speed! :)

Purchased for my wife for Christmas. She loves them, said they were comfortable from the minute she put them on and just as comfortable at the end of the day. Leather is first quality!
