Sacha Moto Shootie Review:
I first saw these on a model on the Anthro*** website and fell in love. I initially ordered these from a competitors site in a 6.5 which is a half size smaller than my normal size due to the reviews saying it ran big. However I didn't find that to be the case and needed to search for my regular size 7 and what do ya know...on sale at Onlineshoes!. These run true to size for me. I wear this with a Smartwool Hide & Seek sock that doesn't show. Super cute with skinny pants rolled a few times, with boot cuts and also great with a skirt . I chose the dark gray suede which I would actually call a medium gray suede. Mine came with darkened tips of the toes which I love (strangely the smaller size in the same color that I had ordered initially did not come this way). As far as comfort goes, they fit like a cowboy boot and the footbed is cushioned. They are very pointy so if you aren't used to that be prepared. Love the look and thanks Onlineshoes for the price! Don't hesitate to get these...they are on sale for heaven's sake!
I will buy this again

Greene Low Lace Review:
I ordered a 1/2 size smaller than I usually wear; these run big.
Love these flats!
Carson Ballet Review:
Love this shoe. I have a narrow foot and usually have to have a narrow shoe but since those are hard to find I often try a medium to see f it will work. In this case I did get lucky because the shoe fits nicely, though not real tight. They are a bit pricey but they are by Frye, so, what can you say? The leather is very nice. I would like to buy this shoe in more colors.

About Frye

Once dated back to the American Civil War and worn by Teddy Roosevelt, Frye has an original and rooted history. For 140 years they have handcrafted their footwear and are the oldest continuously operated shoe company in the United States.

The 60s, already marked by a unique culture, Frye reintroduced their Campus Boot. Then in 1975, the Frye Company donated a pair of Campus boots to the Smithsonian Institute as a representation of the era. Thus began the demand of the "Original Fryes," and is still strong today.

The Frye Company was founded in 1863 by John A. Frye, a shoemaker from England. Frye products have a long and illustrious history.

Frye's current Harness Boots are rooted in tradition and continue to draw influence from the Cavalry. Today the classic Harness Boot holds a place in American culture. The Frye Harness Boot has been pictured in fashion spreads internationally. In 1938, on a trip to Washington, D.C., John A. Frye's grandson and namesake met a U.S. Navy Admiral who confided that he had trouble finding the Wellington boots he liked so much. As a favor, John agreed to make him a pair. Frye continued to fill requests for these boots through the Second World War. During World War II, Frye supplied thousands of servicemen with Frye Wellington boots, known as Jet Boots, by mail order.

In the 1960s, Frye reintroduced the Campus Boot, from its 1860 original, featuring a bulky toe and chunky heel that came to epitomize the attitude and the style of the 60s and 70s. There was nothing like these "new" Frye Boots on the market, and consumers began to demand "Original Fryes."

The quality of all Frye shoes and handbags is timeless. Frye remains dedicated to the commitment of craftsmanship for which Frye boots, Frye bags and accessories and Frye shoes have been known for more than 100 years.

With the advent of personal style and trends, Frye moved into this century with bold energy. Success has come with tangible efforts strongly focused in the U.S., Japan and Europe. Frye has left its mark in the past and is clearly making a new stand with the future with durable, fashionable footwear and handbags.
