These are pricey but great shoes. I am normally a size 9, and after reading other reviews that suggested getting a half size down, I ordered a 9 and an 8.5. The 8.5 fit great, so the 9 went back. I usually break new shoes in by only wearing them at work, and after about a week of daily office wear, these broke in nicely. They were slightly stiff at first, and the laces were stiff as well, so they tended to come untied, but they are softer now, and the laces have broken in too. They look great as professional as well as casual shoes. They are very high quality, so I don't mind paying more for them. I expect them to last a good long time, and they can be resoled or reheeled as need be.

There aren't many shoes I can just put on out of the box and wear. This is one! Very well crafted, beautiful leather, comfortable and great with pants, jeans and casual skirts & dresses. I love them, well worth the price.

Wow! This shoe is beautiful. I bought it half intending to send it back, since, even on sale, these shoes are a chunk of change for me. But, after taking the Carson Oxfords out of the box, I can't stand to part with them. They are strikingly attractive, well-made, and yes, comfortable. It is so clear that the higher cost leads to higher quality here. They are much more stylish and feminine in person than they appear in these photos. Go for it! These shoes are worth it.

Once again Frye does for me! A very retro/British look, true to size and quite elegant, yet wonderful for jeans.

These are my favorites! They are really comfortable, look cool, yet dressy enough for work. I usually do not spend this much on a pair of shoes, but these are worth it. They make a nice clicking sound when you walk. I feel great in them!

Wow, awesome oxfords! The price tag was a little scary, but they are lovely and high quality - I suspect they will last a long time. These have already molded to my foot after only a few wears. I ordered 1/2 size down and the fit was perfect (but I also have narrow feet). I just purchased my 2nd pair of Fryes - the Engineer 8R. Hopefully they will be as great as these!

I received these shoes yesterday and fell in love with them as soon as I opened the box...and then I put them on...and needless to say, they did not disappoint! They fit like a glove and are so incredibly comfortable! I've been wearing them all day today walking around and I can't even tell I have a new pair of shoes on..there was no breaking in on these beautiful oxfords. I'm usually between an 8 and 8.5, I ordered an 8 and they're perfect. Sometimes I feel like my feet are a bit wide but these were perfect. This is my first pair of Frye shoes and I can't wait to pick out my next pair, they're completely worth every penny! Love them!

I just got these in fawn. I am in love. This is my fifth pair of Fryes and they may be my favorite so far. In other brands I am an 8½-9. I got these in an 8½ and they fit well. In person the fawn color is a cool toned taupe brown. They are absolutely stunning in person. They are very refined and at the same time casual. I got them to wear to the office but definitely plan to wear them with jeans or cropped pants as well. I love them.

These shoes are extremely comfortable. I'm a teacher and I wore them to work on the first day, and they didn't hurt at all. They look great, very classic, with all styles of pants and skirts. My only minor issue is that the toe is quite a bit more pointed than I feel it appears from the angles of the photos. Not exactly what I expected, but I still love them because I know they will last forever.

Yes, they run big. I am a true 8.5B, and I had to return these to get 8's. I love these shoes mostly because of how they feel, and I have issues with one foot and leg with nerve damage and instability. The shoe makes me feel stable, the heel height is perfect, and the cushioning is amazing. The fact that I get a lot of compliments is beside the point!

Love these shoes. I wear a 7 1/2 or 8, depending. I purchased the size 8 because I wanted to wear thicker socks than my normal think pants socks. The shoes fit perfectly. They're not cowboy boots, but they do have a slightly longer feel at the toe. There's plenty of room for my somewhat wide toes and ball of foot area. They were a little slick to begin with, but broke in nicely and now I feel comfortable walking up and down the steep and wet streets of Seattle. The soles are still smooth enough to take a quick spin on the dance floor, should you be inclined.

Love. They gave me massive blisters the first time I wore them, but with thin socks, I was able to break them/stretch them out. Highly recommended. So cute, the heel really puts these over the edge into envy-inducing territory. I catch other girls around my college campus eying them daily.

These are a great staple to have in my shoe closet. Works well with skinny pants and skirts -- not as cute with boot cut and flare jeans. I wear a size 9 in the Harness boot so I ordered both the 8.5 and 8. Ultimately I kept the 8 because I have a flatter arch and narrower foot. The 8 felt a little narrow across my left foot but it has stretched since wearing. I really like this shoe!

I wear these shoes almost every day now. No buyer's remorse here! They go with everything from jeans to a cute dress, and the compliments come rolling in. I have a wide 9 foot and the 8.5 fits me perfectly.

I love this shoe, so comfortable, casual yet stylish, could leave it on all day! Love the color, also. I want more of them, just wish they were less expensive; but at least you get quality with this pair.

These oxfords are the coolest! They're so comfortable, well-made and stylish. They're expensive, but I can tell they'll last a long, long time. They run a half-size large, it seems, and the heel is a bit taller than it looks in the picture.

Very well made shoe - these will definitely last forever...first couple of wearings they were a bit uncomfortable because they are really stiff heavy leather. But, once they started to break in a bit they are really comfortable. Just the right heel height for an alternative to flats.

Love these oxfords! I wear 8.5 or 9 and have a slightly wide foot. In Frye I always wear 8.5, but not this time. The 8 fits perfectly. The 8.5 actually had that clown look, since they were too big and the toe curls up. But when I sized down a half size, they looked feminine and amazing. Bought the fawn color and it is a perfect neutral and the color makes the style show to advantage. The toe box is cushioned well, but no arch support. Very comfortable!

Love these shoes - got them in the fawn color. They are classic and understated, perfect for fall. They DEFINITELY run at least a half size large (I wear a 9 in everything, and the 8.5 fits well). Super comfortable, though the bottoms are extremely slick and pretty impractical for riding a bike to work this morning. Feet just slid off the pedals.

Love this shoe! There must be a lot of us looking for the "perfect oxford", because I have had trouble finding it as well. But my search is over. These are styled beautifully and are comfortable. I think the little bit of heel and curved toe are part of the unique styling that make this one better than any other I have tried or looked at. Expensive, but these are exactly what I have been looking for so I actually bought two. Crazy for me, but when you only buy a few quality things and those things are hard to find- well!

These are beautiful shoes well crafted. They will last years. Comfortable from the first day I wore them. I receive many compliments because they are an unusually stylish oxford. I wear them with jeans, skirts and dresses. They are very versatile and I highly recommend them.

Wow! I adore these! They just arrived in the mail and they were all I was expecting and more. They are the perfect oxford. Unlike some oxfords, these look like men's shoes scaled down for the female foot. Many oxfords are bulky and too large for a woman's foot. I love the fit. They're very comfortable right out of the box. I usually wear a 7 in shoes but have 6.5's and 7's in Fryes and I took these in a 7. I think they run a tiny bit long, but I wouldn't want to go down a half size because I'd worry that because of the tapered toe of the shoe, it might crunch my toes-- especially with socks. I cannot wait to wear these this fall/winter and for a long time to come. I may even be back for another color. They're pricey, but since I've searched and searched for the perfect oxford to no avail until now, I think it might be worth the investment to have 2 pairs. You really cannot go wrong with these!
