I was looking for a plain-ish oxford shoe I could wear as an alternative to my running shoes, casual sneakers, or snow boots. For foot/fit comparison's sake: I am a true 8.5, medium width but for a small tailor's bunion developing on the small toe side of each foot, very high arches, high instep. I tend towards over pronation and walk with a first metatarsal drop (meaning I strike the ground with the big toe side of my foot first, especially when running) for which I have compensatory orthotics. The Shoe: This is a straight forward, low heeled oxford. No decorative stitching or embellishments, which is what I was looking for. Leather upper and leather lined. It's a very pretty, if plain oxford. The leather looks and feels lovely. Even though I am an 8.5M, I used to be a 9 in fry boots, so that's what I ordered. Bad move, as these were too long in the foot. My recommendation would be to order your true size, regardless of your size history with Frye shoes. Aside from being too long, however, these felt wicked painful, even walking on carpeting while trying them on. They are stiff and the foot bed is flat as a board. The insole is not removable, however, and there isn't enough room to insert my orthotics (I would put in an arch "cookie" for support, were I to keep them). My sense is that they would take some breaking in. Lastly, the sole is very slippery. Back they go...

It looks quite lovely, stylish. Unfortunately the outer sole is quite slippery so I decided to return.

No break-in required. Perfect as soon as you skip them on.

Very happy with these shoes. Fit my size 8, narrow foot perfectly. They look good and appear versatile. Yes, they are slippery on the bottom. Usually walking outside a few times takes care of that. Good investment for a timeless look. I expect to be wearing these for a long time. Thank you Zappos for the fast delivery!!!
