It kills me to return these boots. There are a lot of great things about them. I am a size 9, ordered a 9 and I think they are true to size. They fit great, maybe a little snug at first, but I think they would break in beautifully. The color I bought (SMOKE) was gorgeous and identical to the picture. The toe has a darker, burnished authentic look as shown. The heel height was perfect, felt stable and comfortable. The problem with these is the oversized collar/shaft area. As other reviewers said, it's wide. It's very wide... it makes the bottom of my jeans actually bell out. Like, super-flare. With my narrower bootleg jeans, the shaft of the boot is completely visible and obvious underneath. I tried tucking my jeans in, but I don't really like that style, personally... Not a look I'm going for and it was a deal-breaker. A shame, because these were perfect in every other way.

At first I thought these boots were amazing. But after about 10 wearings I noticed the harness sagging on either side of both boots. There was glue directly below the rings that attached the harness to the actual boots. This glue had dried up and lost all its stickiness. They are definitely not worth the price. Back to Zappos they go.

I was looking for a classic short western-style boot and this is it. It's comfy too. Some people mentioned that it is bulky under your jeans leg but for me, a large tall person, it was not a problem.

These boots are great! I had originally ordered them in my regular size, a size 7 and they didn't fit right so I returned them. Several months later I still wanted them so I ordered 1/2 size larger and I love them! They are so comfortable, right out of the box. They look great with jeans, very stylish.

I am completely in love with my Carmen shorts. I have the black waxed suede and the leather smoke. Both are amazing. Super comfortable, I have worn them out shopping and at work on my feet all day with no sore feet. No break-in time, these were great from the start. My other Fryes (Veronica short) took a bit of time to loosen up. These boots are wonderful for dressing up an outfit, even jeans and a tee feels sexy in these. The quality is top-notch, these babies will last a lifetime.

I ordered these boots at 4:30pm yesterday and received them today! I couldn't believe they arrived that fast. I got these boots in the Smoke color. I love them!! It is a beautiful brown and they look perfectly worn in. I have these boots in tall in the Gray color. The leather on those looks more pebbled, and the Smoke is a smooth leather. I have the tall in a size 8, but read some of the reviews on here saying over time the leather would stretch out a little. I got these in a 7.5 and they fit great! I honestly can't afford these boots, but they are so awesome! I have to keep them! :)
