Let me first start by saying this: Zappos has the most AMAZING customer service that I have ever experienced from any company. Okay, now the boots... I have been searching for almost a year for the perfect Frye boots. I have never owned a pair before and I am extremely picky when it comes to shoes, especially boots. I have tried several other styles in Frye and discovered that sizing runs different in most styles. I wear an 8.5 or 9 in other brands and mostly wear an 8.5 in Frye. However, the Carson I wear an 8, the Harness I wear a 7.5... I originally ordered an 8.5 in these boots in the black. They did feel a little tight in the toes and loose in the heel, but I knew they would stretch and mold to my feet with time. The black for me was just TOO dark and somewhat masculine looking. I decided to exchange them for the dark brown leather in the same size. The dark brown leather is absolutely gorgeous! I love that the sole and heel are a nice contrasting lighter brown and will look even better with wear. They are a very beautiful dark chocolate brown and will go just fine with black and any other color items. HOWEVER, for some reason the brown felt snugger in the toes, so much so that I was afraid that they are just too small. I understand the confusion with sizing with these boots because they are narrow in the toes and slip in the heel. I did some research and discovered that they will actually stop slipping in the heel with wear. Sooo... I am now waiting on my size 9 to arrive. I will probably end up keeping these so I will be able to wear medium weight socks in the colder weather. I think many reviews here claim the boots are uncomfortable because the sizing is somewhat confusing and they probably did not have the correct size. For me (unless you have a narrow foot) they run true to size. I would not recommend going down a half size in this particular style of Frye because they are so narrow in the toe area. I highly recommend this style! I put off getting them for a long time because they are so expensive, but I am sooo GLAD I finally bit the bullet and got them! They are so classy, go with everything and will last so many, many years. Also, they fit really well in the calf with a little extra room for jeans to be tucked in. I am 5'4” and they come right up to the bottom of my knee, which I love. Get these! You won't regret it!

I was originally so excited to buy these boots, but when I pulled them out of the box today, the right boot shaft was 1/2 inch longer than the left! So they hit at different places on my knees which looked weird, and then I got out a tape measure and they are totally different heights. What a bummer. I ordered the Frye Dorado Riding boots in black, they are beautiful! Besides the obvious defect, the height is perfect, 1 inch below below my knee (I'm 5'8") and I love the feel of the leather. They actually fit true to size for me, I'm a size 8 regularly am usually a 7.5 in Frye's. I'm so sad to be sending them back!

These are the best boots ever. I have three pair of Frye boots and these are my absolute favorite. Other reviews helped me to decide on this boot. I ordered a 9 (I'm a true 9) and found them to be a little snug in the toe, but when the leather warms up that changes. I put a moleskin pad on the heels and found that was a life saver. These are the best looking boots I have ever purchased.

I'd also recommend: FRYE!

The good - Beautiful, beautiful red leather. Beautiful style. Excellent workmanship. Looks great. Nice long shaft. The bad - As others have stated the heal slides in the boot for some time before the slid lessens. The sliding has not gone away. I wear thick socks. The ugly - There is no support in the arch and very little padding at the ball of the foot. I will be putting in an insert. The sole is leather so I wouldn't wear them in Chicago icy winter weather.

I am 5'11" and was looking for boots that came up to my knee. This was my fourth pair of boots, two others too short, and one pair too small. These are great, they are a bit roomy around my calves but that is okay, and come just to the bottom of my knee in both the front and the back (some other boots come to the bottom of my knee in the front but the back was way lower). Anyway, perfect fit. Size 11 which is my "true" size. Very happy, wear them with tights to work and with jeans out and about. One hitch, the buckle catches on my tights when I cross my legs. Heel does slip a bit which other reviewers mentioned, but luckily no extreme blisters.

Breaking these boots in was brutal! But after about 10 wears, the leather finally gave. And now, these are my new favorite shoes. I'm 5'10 and they hit right at the bottom of my knee. My problem with riding boots in the past was that they make my size 11 foot look like a size 15. The way the shaft rises on these prevents that. I try to wear these boots with everything, and now I'm buying clothes just for them! I will say the arch support sucks. Well actually, there is no arch support. With as much as I wear them, I'll have to buy supports this weekend. Hopefully my size will be available if these go on sale. I'll be purchasing another color.

These boots are super classy!! I have 15" calves and they slipped right on with ease with plenty of room for jeans. If you are thin they may be too roomy for you. Unfortunately for me the shaft is very tall and I could not sit down in them so I sadly have to send them back. The look is English riding style so they are dressier than most Frye riding boots but could be dressed up or down. If only my calves were 1.5" taller, they would be perfect.
