Ooh...life-changing! I got these in Tan, they are a bit darker than pictured, but still a fab neutral. When I had my daughter 15 years. ago, the bones in my feet spread & now I have an extremely wide foot (size 9W). For 15 years, I've worn mainly just sneakers
. I have a half-dozen other 2" heels in my closet that I sometimes suffer through a few hours of wear at a time - that's all I can stand, my feet hurt so bad from too-narrow shoes
. They were cheaply made in comparison with Frye's (although they were expensive - most cost more than these clogs
). I threw them all away now that I have these beauties! Over the past 15 years, I've tried on (literally) thousands of pairs of shoes. None fit. Until now - this & another pair of Frye mules
("Belted Harness Mule" in color "Black Greasy Leather", with a 2" heel). I was just gearing up to plan a trip to an out-of-state boot-maker to have something custom-made, which would have cost $500-$1K for a single pair. As a last ditch effort, I ordered these 2 Frye mules
, Hallelujah! They fit, have a sturdy, comfy heel, leather sole & breathe (so no stinky feet), look great, feel great, at a great price even when not on sale! I am now going to try to scour the marketplace for years to come to find a few more pair. I just can't believe they fit, and feel great, and look great, and have a heel, and are obviously a craftsman-quality product which will last indefinitely! No, they are not runway 5" heel Manolo Blahnik's or Christian Louboutin
or whatever, but I'd never wear a heel that high at all, even occasionally. I am so thrilled with these 2 pair of Frye's! By the way, I'm a 9W & ordered a size 9 in each - these Tan pair are just a bit long, so for anyone with a normal or narrow width foot, you could easily order down at least 1/2 size. My regular size 9 fits perfectly because I need the width. No they are not extremely lightweight. This is what a quality shoe feels like - the leather is so thick, the finish is glossy, the heel is sturdy, the sole is super-thick, hard leather, and that all adds up to a solid shoe. When worn, my feet feel snuggly & comfy - not swollen & sweaty! I receive a ton of compliments, everyone asking me where I got them. I did not blink about the price, for my impossible-to-fit foot, it's a steal! And, for anyone sick of mass-produced "shoes" with no regard to how the shoe actually wears on the foot, buy these! You'll immediately see how the other half lives, and will be amazed at what you've been missing! These are not "disposable" $19.99 shoes. Rather, they are real, old-style, quality footwear, made to breathe, look great, conform with your foot, and made to last.
