These are the best wedge shoe I have ever laid my hands on. They are beautifully made and fit like a glove. They are pricey but they will last a life time.

They say it takes a lot less to write a complaint than a compliment. Wise words indeed. I’ve been a loyal shopper of Zappos for years and this is believed to my first time writing a review here. This shoe has moved the compassionate nerve in me to try to save my fellow shoe shoppers. People with high arches and wider than normal feet, cherish your feet and steer clear of this good-looking but callous shoe - it took me almost 3 months of wearing these in the office WITH foot covers (warning: not a good look) in order to break the shoe in. The reason it took that long to break it in was because the initial 1st week was so unbearable I dreaded to put them on when the sadomasochist-time arrived. But it really is too cute in person and since I'd already worn it out in ecstasy the first opportunity I had, I couldn’t return it... or could I, Zappos?? The Taupe is a lovely classy colour, length ran pretty true to size but the toe box was really short. How fortunate it was that when I FIRST wore it, it was to the office so I could change out of it intermittently throughout the day since it will almost certainly be IMPOSSIBLE to go about your day being the first time. Also, I had to take them to the cobbler to have rubber under soles added; else it would be doubly “unwalkable” on slippery pavements. Great look but POOR quality for that price, material kept cutting into my Cinderella’s sisters’ feet all around. I would have left a blood trail had it not been for my Hue COTTON liners. That’s what it took; this shoe would have sliced right into any nylon, that’s how tough the “soft leather” is!

These classy shoes look good with skirts and pants. When I make a presentation, they are my go to pumps. The rounded toe and just right heel make it possible for me to stand in them all morning and stay pretty comfortable. If I rest my feet during lunch, I can wear them through the afternoon. My regular size 9 fits well, but I ordered a 9½ for standing all morning; the heel in the 9½ is a bit loose, but it is more comfortable for prolonged standing. They offer a little more support than the typical fashion-conscious shoes.

These shoes are very stylish and versatile. I have narrow feet with high arches so I added additional arch support. They fit like a glove. The heel is a comfortable height and has beautiful leather that is well constructed. This is my second pair and I love them.

My first Frye product was not a disappointment! Beautiful craftsmanship, excellently designed for comfort and utility. In this particular shoe, the line across the toe needed to be stretched out a bit for me. Heat and hand stretching worked well. My new favorite shoes! LOVE them!

Great shoe. A little stiff at first, but is really beautiful. Color is a deep red, heel height is perfect. Great for fall. I think it's pretty true to size

These shoes are by far my favorite wedges I have ever had! Sooo comfy and I get compliments on them all the time. Pretty pricey, but worth every penny because they are made so well and will last.

Fabulous pumps! Very comfortable, and easy to wear dressed up or dressed down. I am usually between a 9 and an 8.5. I usually go for 8.5 in leather shoes, and they stretch to fit. These I bought in 8.5 and they were perfect right out of the box.

Simple, but stylish (ie. not shapeless or clunky) wedge that's easy to walk in. Even though the shoe is comfy and the leather soft, I find Frye shoes always need a breaking in period, so be prepared...my feet are covered in blisters as I type. Otherwise, I love these shoes (and I'm not a heel wearer), and I expect after a couple more wears, they will be perfect.

Beautiful shoes! I'm not a heel person these days, as they hurt my feet, but these puppies were super comfortable right out of the box. The color is rich and beautiful. I find Frye runs large, but these were more true to size than some of their boots that I've ordered.

I love these shoes! They are gorgeous, the leather is so soft and classic, and they are surprisingly comfortable. I have not worn heels in over a decade. I'm an ultra-long distance runner and wear minimalist shoes with zero drop (no added height in the heel at all), so the 3 inch heel is a huge step for me. But I started taking ballroom dance classes and needed a leather-soled shoe with a heel, and I love the Frye leather. Agree with going 1/2 size down - I'm between 7.5-7, happy I went with the 7. I was surprised at how comfortable the heel height is. My only problem is the narrowness of the toe box, because I always wear shoes with room for my toes to s-p-r-e-a-d. Still, I've been wearing them for a couple of hours at work each day since I got them Tuesday without issue. And I can't wait to wear them for dancing class tomorrow! They really are so lovely that I've been looking for excuses to wear them. Me! Wanting to wear heels! That, and the fact that these are beautifully made and look like they will last forever, makes it worth the price tag.

I'm a sucker for Frye leathers but this one was just too big for my normally sized 5 foot. Not sure why they always start at 5.5. It has a nice roomy toe box and a good sized heel, but ultimately this just wouldn't work for me.

I haven't worn heels since my twins were born almost 4 years ago...and even when I DID wear them, it was a rare thing. But I trust Frye, got these for a wedding (I got the RED and it is gorgeous), and could actually wear them the whole time! I've also worn them to work (I'm a middle-school teacher) and was still comfortable at 4 pm! What kind of mojo does Frye have? I'm a true Euro 39, which makes me an 8 in Fryes (had to send the 8.5 back--thank you Zappos). Treat yourself to these...you won't regret it.

Absolutely LOVE this shoe! Can be dressed up, or down with jeans. Wedges are one of the most comfortable shoes to wear, if they fit properly. I first got the burnt red, since I had several other black wedges by Kenneth Cole. But being a Frye that will last a long time, and this is one of those timeless styles, I splurged for the black one too. Quite spendy, but well worth it! You can't go wrong with this one, highly recommend.

I got these in burnt red and I am on the fence. They are gorgeous in color and construction, but not very comfortable. I am usually a 9½ but they were too big so I sent them back for a 9. The width was good but still a bit too long. I bought inserts that I hope will help break them in. Because of the leather sole, after wearing them for a night I cannot return then (as they are too scratched) so I am going to try to break them in and hope that I have not wasted all this money! If nothing else these wedges are absolutely gorgeous to look at.

This is a beautiful shoe. I purchased these for work and they wear very well. I normally wear a 7.5 but in Frye size down 1/2 size. I have a wide foot and with more wear they will stretch.

These shoes are cute and comfortable. When I first pulled them out of the box I was concerned because they felt still and looked narrow. My feet are on the wider side so I was skeptical, but they are actually really comfortable and require very little break in time. I love the burnished look. It's a nice little step up from the regular old red wedge, yet still versatile enough to go with a lot of different things.

I ordered this shoe because I wanted an all day comfort heel. I did not find it uncomfortable, but I would not wear it all day shopping like I would my Clarks purity wedge or my Sorel heels. I do not feel it was worth the price, I wish I could return them.

These shoes were a bit stiff; they were relatively comfortable, but they were definitely too long. I usually wear an 8.5, I can't remember the last time I purchased an 8...not sure that would be comfy either as it might be too snug in the toe box. I do have a wider toe area though, so maybe someone else would do well. They really are cute though.

These are very nicely made. Perfect fall/winter wedge. I think they run a tiny bit small/short. Overall happy with the purchase.

I don't think these are worth the money. I don't regret buying them necessarily, but I just haven't found the value (at least not yet). My feet are very wide but even so, normally when I get 1/2 a size up it is good enough. With these, they are still a bit tight and I have a little bit of toe crack showing which is never attractive. I wore them for the 2nd time today and the bottom of the shoe looks like I've been wearing them for a decade. Not a huge deal but why is all the color gone already for an almost pricey pair of shoes? On the plus side, I love the cognac color and I am so happy to have a closed-toe wedge that is more than an inch high and that is a little stylish as well.
