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.

Instantly comfortable and I got no blisters like I usually get when breaking in new shoes on my long walk to work. They are remarkably well made and flattering on the foot. Looks like they will last me a good long while.

I got these in cognac and they are very nice. I have a wide foot and usually wear an 8. After a few wears, the leather stretches and the shoe doesn't fit snugly. I should have ordered a 7.5. I've tried using inserts and heel slips, but they don't work very well. The support isn't great -- these aren't the shoes you want to wear for a long day of shopping or walking. I like the shoes for basic every day wear, but I don't wear them much because they've stretched. If you get a pair that fits nicely, you'll probably wear them every day!

This is a great ballet flat. The soles are a bit slippery on hills. The leather is nice and soft. The shoes do not need to be broken in to wear them.

This is the best flat I have owned, and I have owned many pairs and brands. They fit beautifully - I can wear them to work and then out at night and I don't realize I have been in shoes all day. I will only buy flats from Frye now.

Loving! Wanted simple, leather ballet flats, and that's exactly what these are. The rounded toe makes them comfortable, and the low-ish vamp makes them flattering. The downsides are these: from one color to the next, sizing varies (the red feel 1/2 size larger than the cognac); and absolutely no, zero, zilch support. On the other hand, I can't quite imagine hiking in these things :). Will definitely purchase in other colors, and hope I don't have to take advantage of Zappos fantastic exchange service!
