Last week I was dinking around downtown waiting for a friend to get off work before we heading to the stadium for a ballgame. I popped into Nordstrom to peruse for 20 minutes or so. After a pass through the shoe department, I decided to try on a pair of $59.95 bp. flats. The kind sales person brought back a pair of $149.95 Frye Carson flats, explaining that they didn’t have my size in the shoe I originally requested. I know we have all been there, the sales person brings out a shoe more than twice your budget and you cringe, try it on and politely say that it doesn’t fit (aka: I can’t afford these).
Lucky for the sales person, this tactic typically works on me and this time they got me again. They were comfortable, cute, versatile and are Frye, so they will last (see me justifying…). If you are in the market for some expensive, but very well made, leather flats – these are the ones. I went for the “silver multi”, but they come in black, cognac, violet, green, orange, white and bronze leather.
