What a wonderful shoe! Love the look, love the fit, love the feel....but I ordered black leather, not patent leather. Can't ever use patent leather. Will have to exchange them for, you guessed it, black leather.

I was underwhelmed by this $90+ shoe. Ordered 6-1/2 W for a slightly wider foot that normally does not need a wide width. But so many shoes are under-sized nowadays! The thing feels like a slipper and looks blah. And the insole slips out -- very weird. I returned for a refund. Sigh.

Typical for a Chinese product - you have to try 3 sizes before anything fits. I wear a 9 so I ordered a 9 M in black leather. They were too small, too narrow. Ordered 9.5 - way to large! Then ordered 9 W in suede - Bingo - that's what I needed. These are quite good looking for "sturdy boots", but quality wise - not that good. Rather stiff, hard leather ("pig suede" is nowhere near the top shelf). No arch support. Zippers a little crooked...I kept them as they will do the job of "sensible" shoes when I can't wear heels.

Lovely boot. Had to return, so I didn't wear them long (because the calf didn't fit!) – not much to say about comfort. My calves are wider than the 16 in and was hoping the elastic would help, but not much give.

I really wanted to like these. However, although the box showed Black Patent, they were definitely black smooth leather. Had they been comfortable, I would have kept them. However, the left shoe cut into my foot behind my big toe. I tried them on several different times, thinking they might somehow be okay, but sadly, I had to return them. I really appreciate Zappos return policy because they make it so easy when things don't work out.

I ordered 2 pair of black Sudini Laila one in M and other in W. I was looking for comfortable leather loafers that wouldn’t become uncomfortable when my feet swell. Both pair are very soft leather and have removable insoles. I kept the medium width. It was the better fit though the toe box is a little tight for now. Think i’ll get more pairs in the navy and the brown. Thanks Zappo’s.

Very soft and comfortable leather but most suitable for people who naturally have a wide foot. I ordered a half size smaller (7.5) than my normal size (8) and my foot was still slipping around in the shoe like crazy. My heel, in particular, was as secure as a bowling ball in a bouncy house. Great quality, really comfortable, and super cute but just doesn't work for my foot at all.

I am usually an 8.5 but this shoe ran large and when stepping in it, my foot came out of the shoe. I am returning

Most comfortable boots I own. Look great. Walked around shopping first day, all day. I own then in taupe and black. Ordering a pair for my daughter.

I have a difficult fit because of a bunion on my right foot. When I tried on the right Boot, it felt like a bedroom slipper. I love the look and I am very happy with the comfort. Can walk in them for hours
Rochelle from Pittsburgh on December 21, 2018
Really wanted to love these shoes. Great color, well made but hit right on my bunion! So the search goes on for a great looking and great fitting flat for my wide feet. Thanks Zappos.

I usually wear a 6.5 EE, so I went up to a 7w. But it still was not wide enough and I couldn't even get my foot in.

After several tries, I finally found the waterproof ankle boot that I like. The faux fur is cute. Unfortunately there was a problem with the zipper, and they no longer had any more in my size so I had to return it. But, shoutout to another amazing Zappos customer service experience, they told me another retailer where I could buy the shoe at the same (sale) price.

I purchased a green pair of Sudini Kasha and the shoes were so comfy and attractive. I purchased another pair in black suede to wear with my black jackets and slacks. Sudini shoes are very easy to place on and off my stockinged feet. I use water-resistant spray on my suede shoes, and the shoes last and last. Go, Sudini, go AKA GSG.

LOVE these!!! Beautiful! Not to mention comfortable too! I got in a wide width and they are perfect!!! Extremely easy on/off. The boot sits very low on the ankle but still looks like a bootie...which I adore so my pants can be a bit longer in the cold weather :) These truly are amazing!!! I didn’t need more booties but came across them by chance and am thrilled I did!!! I may get another pair in a different color too...
Zappos Reviewer on December 19, 2018
Great looking boot, BUT...agree 100% with another reviewer who said that the heel in these runs too large. It runs super large. The 7.5 fit my foot perfectly in all other spots but my heel slipped horribly, way too much for a thicker pair of socks to remedy the issue and the 7 would have been to small. So, back they went. Bummer.
SV from Sun Valley, ID on December 17, 2018
These are great! I came back for a pair in black, too. Not sure how waterproof they might be, I haven't wanted to test it because I really like the suede. A smidge on the small size...probably not an actual half size small, but a little short. Width is true. I find the sole very comfortable and supportive, but if you are looking for robust arch support, these aren't the boots to fit that bill.

I have tried and returned SO many knee high boots using Zappos hassle-free returns. Up until I tried the Frida. I'm very happy with these boots and wore them the whole day with no feet issues. The black soft suede fabric is nice and comfortable, and doesn't make my calves look like they're cased in like a sausage. I'm only 5' tall and I have 16" calves. I wore the boots over jeans and my calves didn't feel restricted and didn't feel tight after zipping all the way up. I'm happy with the quality, comfort and the price of these boots.
KEG from San Francisco on December 15, 2018
Love these boots. I put them on an wore to a party the day they arrived. Totally comfortable and cute! The heel is feminine but not too high - which I prefer - and the toe is a bit pointy but not so much as to cramp the toes. I recommend these highly!
Zappos Reviewer on December 08, 2018
Leather is soft, as is the footbed. I ordered wide and still seemed a bit narrow for wide width but they fit nicely. My problem was they were a bit long in the toe box for me. Had to return. Still on the search for perfect, comfortable work shoe.
Veronica from SoCal on December 08, 2018
Shoe looks great and I really wanted to like it. The toe box was too tight, inner sole didn't feel good on my foot.
Zappos Reviewer on December 03, 2018
I agree with the other review that the W isn't particularly wide in the footbed. But it's wide enough, I'm pleased that the calf fits, and they seem very comfortable right out of the box. Very cute and simple. Keepers!

Low toe box was pressing on my toe, also no arch support. Returned.
A. from San Francisco Bay Aarea on December 02, 2018
I ordered a wide, but the toe bow was narrow and low. The width and extra material were in the arch area, which is the narrower part of the foot. Too bad, because it is a nice looking bootie.
