Inferior Boots - I've been waiting for this boot for years. I've owned Frye Boots for over 30 years. In the past, Frye's Calvary were designed and made as well, if not better, than the Campus. I feel if the Calvary Boots are to take off, they should be: 1. lined, and 2. offered in various shades. Like I said, I love the design of the boots, now all they have to be is upgraded to the class they used to be in.

Wonderful boot, great shopping experience! Just received my Frye Cavalry style boots. I had Frye boots years ago in college (early seventies). Best boots I ever owned. I love the square toe, but I do not like a motorcycle boot. Cowboy boots, with the pointed toe and the fancy stitching, look too fancy (really, did actual cowboys really wear such a "dandy" looking shoe?). This is just what I was looking for: a traditional boot with a square toe and no frilly decoration! Zappos.com is the place to order! I placed my order on Thursday and received the boots the following Monday, and no shipping charges! Wonderful boot, great shopping experience!

I'd also recommend: Any Frye boot

Great boot ... At this price, this is not a cheap boot. However, the build quality and workmanship are excellent and the overall fit, finish and general look is great. If you like the idea of a western styled boot without all that pointy-toed stichiness of a classic western boot, these are for you. Zappos weren't quite the cheapest for the boot itself, but by the time you factor in their free shipping AND free returns, Zappos is the place to buy shoes online. Let's face it, if they don't fit you can send them back, for FREE.

I'd also recommend: Frye boots in general

These boots are flawless. I also own a pair of 2010 12L harness boots, and I had a lot of problems with the harnesses stretching and sagging after only a day or two. I almost sliced the harnesses off, but Frye made good on their warranty, and their customer service department is to be highly commended. These Cavalry boots have the same awesome look, but without the harnesses, and I can buy my own decorative boot harnesses which are available everywhere. I almost bought the less expensive belted harness boots, but figured the simpler, the better. These boots also differ from harness boots in that they have a leather sole, have much more arch support, and the leather feels much softer. The product quality of the Cavalry boots is perfect whereas my harness boots last year came with scrapes, cuts and flaws, which looked like manufacturing defects rather than wear and tear from people trying them on. Also, the harness boots looked like the left and right ones were made in different countries, whereas the Cavalries are a perfect match. It's possible that Frye has improved their quality control in the year since I bought the harness boots. With some shoes I have to go to an E width, but these Frye D's are a perfect fit (depending on socks I suppose), perhaps because of the wide snub toe. Also, years ago my American-made shoes were always size 9.5, but with the advent of imported shoes, I usually now wear a 10. These Fryes (both the harness and Cavalry) are a perfect fit at 9.5, so keep that in mind when you pick a size. Kudos to Zappos for free shipping, fast service, and worry-free shopping.
