Are you dying? Because I am dying.

I…it’s just…they’re so…I just don’t even have the words for how perfect a shoe this is. It’s…it’s…okay, I have to go pee now.

Honestly, if you had told me this was the cover image of a costume institute auction book, I would believe you. but they’re not, they’re FRYE’S! So your feet will wear out before these will.

Do you see that heel? The architectural curve of the breast (shoegeek trivia: the forward-facing part of the heel is known as the breast) the way the gathers at the quarter lend texture and perfectly foil the sleek heel. Plus they’ve got a 3/4″ hidden platform so they’re totally wearable.

It’s like that time in college when I woke up really early and went to the dining hall as soon as it opened, expecting to be alone with my waffle, only to discover that the men’s swim team was there too, and the heater was broken and on way too high so they’d all taken off their shirts.


Okay, so how much?

You’re going to die!

  1. It costs you $188 to get your shoes fixed??? Geesh. I’m glad I don’t live where you are!

  2. OH MY GOD I LOVE THOSE SHOES! Sorry for the shouting but wow those are hot. Thanks for the post!

  3. All that’s listed is “original price” and that’s $188. Way out of my budget, especially this time of year. They’re lovely, though, aren’t they! And who can’t use another pair of grey shoes?

  4. Sigh. I’m not even going to go look, because there’s no way this beauty ships to Canada.

  5. Au contraire! They ship to tout le monde! Groovy, eh?

  6. I have to disagree with you on this one. The heel over-reaches and becomes vulgar and rustic. One is reminded of This End Up furniture. And one shivers and dies a little inside. This shoe, she is a common, forlorn little thing. The shoe equivalent of the short girl with the overly artful messy bun, “ironic” plaid flannel shirt and black platform flip-flops. In other words, le yuck.

  7. Cute, but like most nice shoes, not available in a 12.

  8. I think they are quite ugly and would cause ones feet to appear large and “clunky”.

  9. I just received these in the mail from and they are spectacular. The heel is a less clunky looking in person, the over all shape of the shoe is divine and the leatherwork (especially the pleats around the heel) is just gorgeous. *sigh* I love them.
