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.

It is hard to find a nice navy blue ballet flat. I searched for a while before finding Frye's Carson Ballet. These shoes are made beautifully and are true to size. I can't wait for the fall weather to wear them.

I'd also recommend: Cole Haan, Bernardo

I am with a lot of the other reviewers. I am not sure what all the buzz and cost is with these flats. I own a number of Frye shoes, mainly boots and wedges, which are worth the cost but I do not think that these are. They are simple flats that pucker at the toes like others said. It is just the soft leather that does it. The sole needs to have some rubber to make it non slip. They are not like slippers out of the box but I am sure that they would break in quickly. I got the dark red which looks almost brown in the photos but is a nice deep red in the sun. I have the other bright red but in boots and those are fire engine.

I love these shoes! I purchased the plum in 8.5. They are true to size. I am usually an 8 or an 8.5 and the 8.5 fit perfectly. The color is beautiful and the shoes are extremely comfortable, no break in time required. The color goes with everything (jeans, black pants, brown pants) and they are just nice enough to get away with at the office although I would consider them weekend shoes, because of the distressed look. I have bunions and the shoes don't hurt them at all.

I've been looking for a ballet flat I could actually walk in and I found them! I love these shoes. I was able to wear them out and didn't even need to break them in first, that's how awesome they are. I'm a Frye customer for life now.

I just couldn't be more pleased with a pair of shoes. In my opinion, Frye's quality is well worth paying for. I wear these almost every day and can't imagine how I managed without them.
