As is expected from Frye, these are elegantly simple and beautifully well-made T-Straps. I was originally planning to return these shoes; I thought the flatness and minimalism of them would not be comfortable because I wear orthotics and have a terrible time with shoes that do nut have solid construction. However, I wore them around my house for a full day and stood/walked on a variety of floorings: concrete in my laundry room and garage; linoleum in my kitchen; carpeting up-and-down stairs and along hallways. The Rachel T performed truly outstandingly. My feet did not tire. The cushioning was surprisingly sufficient and supportive. Again, the shoes are beautifully designed; the leather is rich and strong-looking. And, the cupping around the heel adds a secure fit, even for my narrow heels. I tried these shoes with shorts -- awesome! -- a summer dress -- sophisticated! -- and a pair of white, long cargo pants -- dressy casual! Frye has once again lived up to its reputation for excellence in workmanship and aesthetically pleasing footwear. Try the Rachel T today!

I ordered the blue because the color in the picture online was so pretty, and I have been looking for blue sandals. When I opened the box I thought they had sent the wrong sandals - they look completely black. When I look at the color on the inside of the straps I can see it has a slight blue tint to it. I know dyes for leather shoes can vary, but this sandal doesn't look blue at all, and I already have a million black sandals so I'm sending back. First Frye product that has ever disappointed me.

I really wanted to like these shoes. I am usually at 5.5 but took the advice of other reviewers and ordered a 6. This shoe really isn't for narrow feet. The 5.5 would've been too small at the sole but the straps are very big. The buckle is in a really weird place. I was also not impressed with the color. Boo.

I love the style of these shoes but just could not get them to fit. The leather straps on the size 9, my normal size, were way too loose. The straps fit on the 8.5 but the length was too short. Had to send them back.

I love Frye...and these sandals didnt disappoint. I bought the same sandals in caramel color a couple of years ago, so when I saw them in black, I jumped on them. I've worn them everyday since.

I have these in the cognac & I love them. I wear them all the time in the summer months. I purchased the black on sale, but I didn't like them as well as the brown-personal preference, I guess. They soles are very slippery until you scuff them on some cement. I almost sent my brown ones back due to this, but once I learned that trick, I don't have to worry about slipping at all. Highly recommend if you like a comfortable, laid-back shoe that's easy to wear.

I ordered in the brown and I LOVE these shoes! They are moderately comfortable, the footbed is a hard material, but I think they'll form to my foot a bit as I wear them, but I never expect them to be super comfortable. That's not what these shoes are designed for. They are a good-looking sandal. LOVE the design and color. They stay sturdily fastened on my foot which makes walking in them easy.

I LOVE this sandal so much that I bought it two or three years in a row. They last forever, but I rebought do to my foot darkening the bottom from so much use. I also own the black and both colors go with everything! Receive compliments whenever I wear them!

I've been wearing these almost every day since I bought them a week ago. They are super comfortable, and they are only improving as the leather gets softer. The straps hug my feet nicely and they don't flop around as I walk. 10/10 would buy again in a second (or third) color. I get the feeling that these are going to last forever. Totally worth the price tag. The only thing I was not expecting was a slight detail on the leather that I could not see online. There's a very faint light brown outline on the black leather straps. If you are worried about this, know that it's barely visible, and not at all visible to your eye once you stand up.

Great Frye sandal. Love the style and comfort. No "break-in" needed for these sweet sandals. So comfortable I don't know I'm wearing. Perfect to dress up or down.

Nicely made Frye sandals. Ordered 8.5 as sometimes 8 is bit small. Fits great. Only thing is leather bottom is slippery so needs scuffing up a bit.

I was nervous at first about how comfortable these would be - I usually need a lot of arch support - but after wearing these at work for about a week and walking around to do errands in them, they feel surprisingly amazing! Even though they've got a minimal design, they're not flimsy in the least. They took a little time to break in, only because the bottoms were so slick I needed to walk around a bit to texturize them so I wasn't slipping all over the place. I will say, I wish they were like half a size bigger (I got a size 11). By the end of the day, when my feet are tired and puffy, my toes come right up to the edge of the sandal. Aside from that though, there's nothing I would change about them!

These sandals are a beautiful shade of blue and the leather is excellent quality. I am sorry I had to return them. The front half of the shoe is a strange shape and if your foot doesn't match that shape, your feet will hang over. Perhaps someone with a narrower foot would have better luck.

I ordered three similar pairs of shoes and these were the best. They have no arch support, but I wasn't expecting any. They are comfortable and well constructed. The way the heel is made is very nice compared to similar shoes, as it holds my heel in place and keeps it from sliding around.

These sandals are comfortable and very stylish! Because the straps are not affixed at every juncture, they can adjust very well to my very high instep! I wear a 7½M but have a very high instep and narrow heel. These fit beautifully! I absolutely love the combination of straps with the T front. My toes come very near the edge but do not hang off. I love the gray color, but am returning because I also ordered another pair of Frye sandals (the Carson Seam-T) to compare the gray color and preferred the deeper gray of the Carson Seam-T. I am keeping the Carson Seam-T in gray but have already ordered the Frye Rachael T in cognac - directly from Frye - since Zappos is out of stock in that color and my size. I have been a customer of Zappos since December of 2004, when my brother and sister-in-law gave me a gift certificate to Zappos for my birthday present! Zappos rockS! I may be nearly 64 years old, but I still love fabulous, stylish shoes!

These are really good looking shoes and I love them! They fit just right and are comfortable for walking. They are well made and sturdy feeling. I am hoping they will get just a little more flexible. The leather is on the heavy side which is great but it can be slightly uncomfortable after on a long time.

Love them. Comfy and required no "breaking in." The tan is a true neutral that goes with everything. Worth the price! I did not listen to other reviews about sizing up and had to send back my normal 7 for a 7.5. So size up!

These are surprisingly comfortable. I bought these just before a vacation to Europe and wore them nearly the entire time with no soreness. They are very well made by Frye as usual. I have very thin ankles and I used the last (biggest) hole on the ankle strap, so I would not recommend them if you have thicker ankles.

These sandals were exactly the right color red & are very well made. They are comfortable and secure. The only slight issue is they are a little slippery to walk in but as I'm breaking them in it is less of a problem. I don't usually spend this much money on a sandal but I'm glad I did on these!

This is a lovely sandal. The leather is beautiful and excellent quality. I have a somewhat narrow foot and the adjustable straps allowed me to have a snug fit. The shoe seems to be a bit narrow but fits my foot perfectly -- not sure it would work for a wider foot. I sized up a half size since I wear a 7.5 or 8. The 8 fits perfectly. Certainly a good choice -- looking forward to wearing this sandal all summer!
