This is written for other skinny legged people. I actually found these boots online barely used, but I love Zappos and read all of the reviews here before I purchased them. I have always had the problem of trying to find boots that fit because many boots are so sloppy on my calves that they look like rain galoshes. I am 5'6 at 120lb. Many of the reviews of this boot said they were for people with big calves so I was worried these would not fit my leg. I decided to risk it and I love these boots. There is some wiggle room at the top, but they do not look sloppy. In the photos they are very straight, and like others have said they do slouch a bit, perhaps a bit more if they aren't fitted to your leg like a glove. I can fit skinny jeans in them, but because there is no zipper, I didn't feel like there was a lot of extra room. They are adorable with a skirt and tights. The leather is beautiful, the style is very fun and funky but extremely well made. This is my third pair of Frye's; I usually wear a size 8 in most shoes, but I wear a consistent 7.5 in Frye. Hope that was helpful!

Kind of baggy; I didn't like these boots. The shaft is baggy, but not in a good slouchy way, just baggy. I was hoping I'd be able to wear them with skirts, but the bagginess is just unattractive. I tried them with pants not tucked in, and the round toe looks sort of dorky. Also, I think Frye is way overpriced. These looked so pretty online I thought it might be worth it, but when I actually tried them on: no.

Let me start by repeating something many other reviewers have said: I lusted after these boots for a long time before taking the plunge. It wasn't until one day, trying to spend the day in NYC while wearing my 4-inch-heeled Italian boots, and not having much fun, that I decided to buy these. I was fortunate that I caught them on sale, and that I had a small gift certificate from Zappos to offset a bit of the cost. I have been wearing them for a few months. This fall/winter, I have rotated between these boots and my other pair of Frye boots (Harness 12R), so I wear them at least half the time. I got the Vintage Leather in black. At first, the boots were stiff in the foot. Having gone through the process of breaking in another pair of Frye boots, I wasn't concerned. After a few months of regular wear, they feel more and more like I'm walking in pillows. That is the beauty of the traditional leather construction: the whole shoe will shape to your foot, and fit literally like a glove. I also love the style of these boots. They dress up or down equally gracefully. I wear them with jeans and a chunky sweater, with black leggings and a glittery tunic top, or with a dress for a night out on the town. I find these boots in the shiny black leather to be the perfect combination of sexy and badass. And they are comfortable enough for those days when my job requires me to be on my feet all day in black shoes. If I could give them 20 stars, I would.

These boots are beautiful, but hard to put on. The interior leather ripped after 3 wears. Like, completely ripped. Not sure why. Maybe I got defective ones. Either way, I'm super sad. :(

WAY too small! I normally wear 6/6.5 and these hurt my feet and were very difficult to pull on with no zipper. Beautiful boot, though.

I love these boots! I am a Frye fan. When I received these boots, I had to get them in other colors! My calf is average size and the boots slide on effortlessly. Someone with thin calves may find the boot a bit roomy in the calf, but I think they are perfect. The look great over skinny jeans. I am between an 8 and 8.5. I bought the 8.5 because I like a roomier toe. There was no break-in period for me. I wear them all day and they are super comfortable!
