I am raving about the white cracked leather Carsons. They are my 3rd pair of Carsons and are much softer, pliant, and take no time to break in, unlike my black pair and my tan pair. They are so much nicer than pic; they are beautiful! They're almost a soft gold or tan, without seeming metallic yet on the verge of it. They are like slippers; I just went to try them on to make sure they fit, and I ended up wearing them for the next six hours! (with no socks) Definitely slightly different (softer) leather than the other plain colors. The fit is perfect, as I always take an 8 in Fryes, and these need no break-in time.(My foot tends toward the wider, but shorter side). I have a lot of Frye boots, and these are the softest pair of any Frye product I own. I would say buy your regular Frye size, or if you have never purchased the brand before, they might run slightly larger, but just a tad, not by much. These are a great neutral and if you do not want a show stopper bright white or bright gold shoe, than this is a good alternative. Go for this color, I am pretty sure you will love it. Note to Zappos:Please reshoot the picture of this white crackle leather shoe (then just try to keep it in stock, and it will be a big hit)!

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.

A gorgeous flat in perfect color for warmer weather. The embossed finish is stylish, the color has some shading and it just comes off as elegant. The leather is the usual Frye "top notch" quality making for a soft, super comfortable shoe.

These are comfortable, well-made, versatile flats that I'll wear for a variety of reasons. I love that the sole isn't rubber, which gives it that extra layer of quality. One note - this color seems more pink to me than beige. I still liked the color, but it may be a little misleading.

I just received these today and I will echo what others have said -- they are comfy right out of the box. I just got them in black and will be ordering them in different colors. Very happy with my purchase.

I loved these shoes! But the 9.5 was too small for me and the 10 was too big. Very sorry to be sending them back. They're comfortable, cute, and beautifully made. I have a somewhat wide foot, and the width of these fit me just fine in the 9.5. It was perhaps too wide, or maybe just too long, in the 10.

I'd also recommend: Born

I loved the looked the look of the shoe, but for the price they don't hold up well at all. I treated them with leather protection and haven't worn them in the rain and although they are only a few weeks old they already look like last year's shoes. I paid a lot of money because I thought they would last sadly I would send them back if I could.
