Very nice flat -- well constructed and good quality leather. I bought the gray, which matches the photos exactly, and it's a nice neutral color that will go with many outfits. The only problem I had was with sizing...if you don't have wide feet, stick with your normal size. I am normally a size 6 and the 6.5 was too big, so I sent them back for my real size.

I am so disappointed. I absolutely love my Frye boots and I have two pairs. I am a true European size 41. Boots are size 10 and fit perfectly! The shoe upper and footbed are wonderful leather, but the sole is very thin rubber material. I was hoping for a leather sole based on the quality that I have come to expect from Frye. There is no support in these shoes, but that is not a bad thing based on what they are supposed to be. I will be returning these. I am willing to pay more for quality in a shoe!

Love them! I was hesitating to pay this much for "just flats" but I love Frye and decided to give it a try. They are worth every cent. Great quality. I got the camel color and am ordering another pair in black right now.

I love these shoes. Everyone said to order a half size up because the shoes are narrow. The shoes are narrow, but I have a narrow foot. I ordered my regular size and I am glad that I did. If I ordered a half size up, I think they would've been too big. Plus, I have a friend who has the Carson ballet and she said that her really stretched out after having them a year. These shoes are really comfy and go with everything. They are a really good looking shoe.

These flats are comfy and true to size! I did not find them tight at all. There are soft and super durable feeling. Plus, I had to send them back twice because of sizing, but Zappos had no problem. They're the best!

I love my first pair of Frye flats! It's comfortable without looking like a comfort shoe! I love the textured suede in brown. It's a perfect neutral. I wear a 7 but I had to get a 6.5 for this one.

Oh, I hate to throw a wrench in the reviews about sizing, but these ran large for me. I am usually 8 or 8 1/2, so ordered an 8 based upon other reviews, but they were too big! I can keep them and hope that they don't stretch, but based upon the softness and weight of the leather, I suppose they will. I've also owned some more structured frye flats in the past (similar to the Carson model, but thicker leather and a flat toe instead), and they stretched significantly. Perhaps if you have a narrow foot, you may consider sizing down a half-size since these seem to be pretty normal width-wise. Hmmm. These are most definitely adorable and I can't wait to receive my new size!

I bought these shoes in turquoise in a size 8 after reading reviews that they ran small. They were way too big, even with an insert. I had to return them and ordered a size 7 1/2. They were a little snug but after a few wears they have already stretched out to the perfect size. I say with Zappos' fast shipping and easy returns go a head and order whatever size you want.You can't go wrong! The blue color is fabulous. And the leather is so soft. I love Frye, I own 7 pairs of Frye boots, 2 pairs of Frye heels, but these are the first flats I've purchased.I would say these shoes, at least in the turquoise, are true to size, unlike most Frye's which seem to run large. Again, with Zappos you can't go wrong.

I love this flat! I wear ballet flats to work every day, I walk a lot and comfort is my highest priority. I often chose flats with elastic at top to keep heel from slipping but this shoe handles perfectly on my heel. True confessions, I have 5 pairs of this shoe in different colors... my only complaint is Zappos rarely has the size I need and I must wait for notification my size is in stock.

Frye has finally come out with a very cute and comfortable flat. I use a small orthotic insert when wearing a ballet flat. They accommodate the insert perfectly. I wear a 9 to 9.5... In the Frye the 9 was a good fit. Very stylish shoe. Lots of compliments. As always, Zappos delivered them in one day! Thanks, Zappos, for the great service!!

Recommend highly! Went back and bought a second color. Really well made and quite comfortable. I'm a true 8, but did get the 8.5 based on reviews, as I like a little extra toe room in a pointed shoe. The brown distresses beautifully. Have seen cheaper knockoffs of this shoe around...get the original!

This is the perfect metallic flat. I love the rose gold color and the quality of the shoe itself. Also I love how the tow is slightly pointed (not a dramatic point, but a slight one) as opposed to the numerous dowdy round toe flats on the market. This one really has sophistication and style. Frye has met my expectations yet again and I look forward to wearing this over the next few years and dazzling many an outfit.

Totally in love with theses shoes! They go great with just about anything. Completely worth the money, would recommend these to anyone. I can usually take anywhere from an 8-9 and Bought the 8.5 and they fit great and color is perfect. I own about 50-60 pairs of shoes and these are my favorite. Thank you Zappos again for a great product.

These shoes are so beautiful. I really like the ombre effect on the leather--I ordered camel and you can really see it. The leather is very soft as well. Order a half size up, though. I never listen when people recommend that in reviews but in this case, I could barely get the shoe on (which was really disappointing because they were really lovely). I returned and reordered.

Gorgeous shoe! But I have a wide foot, and couldn't get my foot in this shoe! Returning. Going up at least half a size. Because I couldn't even get my foot in it, maybe I will go up a whole size. I will read more reviews. I should have to begin with. Beautiful shoe though, I will make this work.

I ordered these in the red in my regular size of 8.5 based on previous reviews. However, the pointy toe felt cramped, so I ordered a 9. Those are too big, but putting gel inserts in makes them perfect. I get the toe room and added padding. The shoes are very cute and comfortable. However, these is little arch support or footbed padding, so the gel inserts help. It is nice to be able to try out different sizes and styles of shoes to make best final selection for me.

So gorgeous. I ordered the black and the camel. The sizing really depends on what color you get and definitely need some breaking in to feel true to size. Black runs normal and the camel ran smaller. I am typically a 9 and ordered a 9.5 and the black fit perfect and the camel are killing me- it will probably take a couple of wears to stretch out. Camel color is beautiful with natural gradient to the leather.

High quality shoes that are more elegant than your average flat. They go with everything, and I wear them several days a week.

I purchased these in dark brown. I am normally a heel wearer and I normally wear an 8 - 8½. I was not sure whether I should get the 8½ since I have wide flat feet, but I decided to try the 8 to see how they would fit. They fit perfectly. But if you are concerned that they will make your feet look bigger, they will because of the pointed toe. Regardless these are stylish and comfortable. They are very well constructed. The only downside was that one was wider than the other as if Zappos sent me a tester shoe and the other had a spot that appeared to be a water spot on it. I never had an issue like this with Zappos before, and for the price I am not to happy. Unfortunately I needed them the day they arrived and decided to keep them as is, but I am a little disappointed.

Great flats, very comfortable. Definitely did not fit my usual size 9. Had to go up to 9.5 I think these will stretch a little with use.

I LOVE THESE SO MUCH. They're my first Frye's and definitely make a case for buying more. I have been searching for a long time for a very comfortable, professional dark brown flat that would also make me feel slightly sexy. These are what I was hoping to find--they're gorgeous, exactly like the picture, and I love how they feel. I wear them to teach, either with tights and a skirt or barefoot with pants, and they look very polished yet relaxed and cool. The leather is fantastic--I look forward to how they'll come to look over the years. Now I want the black ones! I tend to wear an 8/8.5 and ended up exchanging these for a 9 because my feet are average-to-wide, but I also needed the 9 for length. Splurge on these and enjoy them!

I bought these because I have a hard time finding flats that are both comfortable and cute - but these are great! I got them in black and also bought my daughter a pair. I have worn them many times and they feel great. The first couple of times I wore them they rubbed a small blister on my heel but now they are fine and don't hurt anywhere. Love them!

This is a beautiful shoe. Unfortunately I paid attention to the other reviews and ordered a 1/2 size up but they too big. I think they are true to size. A little more pointy than I was expecting. The leather looks to be of high quality.
