These shoes are great. Sexy and cute. True to size. Be patient with the break in period. They are very hard at first but soften fairly quickly. I wore them with plastic bags over socks around the house at first. A little trick I learned when I sold shoes. Love Sweedish a Hasbeens. Patrice.

I really wanted to love these shoes, but they are the most ridiculously painful and uncomfortable shoes I've ever worn (and that's saying something). I first bought these in an 8; they fit length-wise, but the toe-box is very narrow where it cuts across the arch of your foot. I've never had to wear a wide shoe before, but I felt like I would have needed that option in this style. I returned the 8s for a pair of 9s, and still had the same issue. I don't have hope that any size of this shoe will prove comfortable for me, even if I were somehow able to wear them long enough to wear in the leather a bit. I'll be returning the second pair of shoes too. They're too expensive to keep, if they're not anywhere close to wearable. (Great customer service from Zappos as I dealt with this though. They were all-stars with my returns and exchanges. Thanks, guys.)

These shoes are exactly what I wanted and I love the look, they are gorgeous. So sad to say they just don't work for my feet. The toe base/platform is pretty narrow; admittedly I have size 10 feet and long toes (ugh); I tried to make these work by tightening the ankle strap but the back strap was too loose. I also tried the sky high woven front Hasbeens, same issue. I am very sad, I love this line but I don't think it works for long feet unless they are very narrow.

I'd also recommend: bosabo, lotta, fluevog

Sigh. Another strike-out from Hasbeens. If you are a near-wide gal and could not fit into the Hasbeens peep toe, forget about owning the Frederica. I am one of those gals who can wear a consistent 7 unless shoe is strappy, I have to size up. Well, this is one of those narrow shoes. I have not tried size 38 as 37 length fits perfectly well for me...maybe 38 can work. I didn't try. Another complaint for this shoe is the fastener strap part. For some reason, it seems to be more 'forward' on the shoe cause when i try to buckle it, I have to forcefully move buckle forward just to get the first hole of the buckle. Very odd. Otherwise gorgeous red color and comfy sole typical of Hasbeens.

These are gorgeous! I know they require a breaking in period, but after wearing them around the house for a bit, I knew I'd never survive it. It felt like I had razor wire around my ankles. How could I ever wear them anywhere? It was heartbreaking to return them, as they were pretty much exactly the look I wanted. But, in the end, life's too short to wear painful shoes. Boo.
