Finally, these dropped down to a better price for me. I originally wanted this shoe, but then I found the Frye Dani Shield Sling Mule (very similar, but with 3" heel instead of 4") at a spectacular price.  FRYE Women's Dani Shield Sling Platform Sandal  --I fell in love with the Dani sandal and it's overall fit and comfort. So, I knew I'd more than likely fall in love with the Karissa Shield. I was right!!!! =) I am very happy with my purchase.

The fit is a glove, out of box. The suede is super soft and beautiful. I love the extra inch in the heel height. --I'm petite and absolutely love finding heels which are both comfortable and classy looking. These don't disappoint. After hitting my 40's and donating, giving away and throwing away so many pairs of heels, I've learned to put my money in comfort and brands I trust. Frye has become one of those brands.

*note for those in a silent working environment, these (mine anyway) give off a slight squeak while walking. This doesn't effect my rating or review, since it doesn't bother me & I believe it will go away after wearing a few times. If slight noise from walking is an issue, you may not want to depend on wearing these immediately to work or a special event. It is very faint, but since these aren't "cheap", I thought I'd share. The Dani Shield gave off no faint squeak.

UPDATE: I tried on Dr. Frederick's Original Gel Pad Bunion Sleeves  Dr. Frederick's Original Gel Pad Bunion Sleeves - 2 Booties for Bunion Relief Before and After Bunion Surgery - Wear with Shoes - Small - W5-7.5 | M4.5-6  with these shoes, and the squeak is no longer present. I don't have bunions, but I thought I'd try these for shoes that have a wee bit more room in the toe box.

This is a beautiful shoe, much more gorgeous in person! At risk of sounding like my New Yorker nana, the suede feels like butter. These will be just perfect for fall. BUT, I ordered these in "wood" and the actual color is not as pictured - its more of a warm chocolate brown. ALSO, Amazon recommended a size 8.5 for me - I am a frye addict and I almost always wear size 9 - but thanks to a purchaser recommendation, I ordered my "frye size" and they fit perfectly.

I'm a size 7 and they fit true to size i wore these all day long and were so easy to walk in because of the platform and chunky heel these are a perfect everyday shoe

I like, of course, they are Frye. I will say they are a tad taller than I thought they would be. However, attractive and of great quality. So far, still a Frye fan!!!

I have these in a different color and love them. However, this pair squeaks. I am not sure if I will keep them but I have been happy with Frye boots until now.

Beautiful and comfortable . True to size

Love these! The fit was perfect and was comfortable out of the box. True to size

Right size, Right fit

Beautiful, soft and comfortable. They seem to run a bit small, I ordered a half size up and probably could have even gone a full one up.

Love the shoe... color received was not as shown but keeping them anyway
