This is my first time writing a review for any product, but I felt I should do so for this one because of the fit. I own several pairs of Frye boots, mules and sandals, and these are the first ones that ever felt tight/small in my size. I am always a size 6, but wish I had ordered a 6 1/2 in this boot because my toes feel very cramped (I do have a wide foot) in this boot. I even had them stretched, but to no avail. It's not just a matter of width, either, it is also the length that is shorter than usual. I should have switched the 6 for 6 1/2. Take my advice if your foot is any wider than a B width and order (at least) a half size larger.

Wah! It's a beautiful shoe but I can't even get the front of my foot inside it. This even after I ordered half a size up. Boo. They're going back.

I am so frustrated. I ordered these boots in a dark vintage brown from another company in a size 8 and they fit perfectly. My only problem was that I did not care for the color in person, so I ordered the Dark Brown Old Town from Zappos in an 8. I was so disappointed when I got them. I could not even get my foot in the boot passed my heel. I then ordered an 8½ only to find out that I could not get my foot in any better than the 8. I absolutely love the color and am not sure what to do. I do not understand why this color seems to fit so differently than the other color. And did I mention that my feet are on the narrow side.

Just wanted to let you all know to not order up! Disregard all the comments. I ordered half a size up, from an 8 to an 8.5...and it was huge! Had no problem getting the shoe on my foot as other reviewers have written. Sent them back because the gap between ankle and boot is too big for my personal desires.

I have pure size 7 UK and was very concerned what should I choose according US size chart. I checked Frye's website, they have 7 UK to 9 US, but after reading all these reviews, I decided to take 9.5 US. Well, I have a little difficulty to put it on, but inside size 9.5 runs wide. Therefore, these boots runs true to the original Frye's size chart, they definitely not suitable for women with a High Medial Arch...how to check put your foot into a ballerina's position (heel up - toes down) and measure with a tape measure around your heel and the Medial Arch...if it much more then 12 inches or 30 sm, you would have a great difficulty to put on these boots of any size, because Billy boots have a standard product measurement for all sizes. About me, I have decided to keep my wide boots and I am going to wear them with a medium thickness sock, which for an autumn season is alright

These are amazing, just like every other pair of Frye boots I own. They are really comfortable and will break in nicely. I did have to order a half of a size larger because of the pointed toe. I normally wear a 9 1/2 and ordered a 10. Since they do have a shorter shaft and I did have to get a larger size, they do slip on the heels a little...but you get used to it after a couple hours. I can wear them all day with no fuss. Love them.

I took a chance on these adorable boots and ordered one size larger as suggested. Unfortunately these boots are so narrow in the heel, I couldn't even get my foot in the boot to try them on. :(
