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 boots are huge! I just got them in the mail and was pretty disappointed when I tried them on. They absolutely swallowed my legs and looked ridiculous. The shaft is very wide and the ankles are extremely wide (to the point where they look like cankles). I normally wear 7 1/2-8, but ordered these in 7 1/2. They run a bit large in size and are built for I think a bigger person overall (I'm 5'6 and not super skinny). The quality is very high, but they look a little more home-on-the-range than I had hoped. I still gave 5 stars for quality and the dark brown is a lovely shade. In the picture they look classic and refined... in person, they are more country casual. Sending them back.... the search continues. :(

This is a gorgeous boot and it looks and feels every bit the cost (and more)! I read all the reviews and was concerned about heel slip. I first ordered a half size up and was swimming, then ordered true to size. I've had the toe of the boot stretched twice and have gotten blisters from the heel slip BUT after wearing them over continually longer periods of time I've finally hit the point where I know they're going to be amazingly comfortable. It's worth the break-in!

After reading all the reviews I just knew that these boots would be amazing. A word of advice - I wore my size 9's (I am a normal 9-9.5) for 8 hours the first day with snug running socks to try and avoid blisters from heel slipping - I would have nasty blisters but I used special bandaids for blisters applied as a preventive. These boots will be awesomely comfortable once broken in. My other Frye's caused horrible blisters at first but now I can wear them barefoot. As others have said these boots are pricey but they are classics which will last for years! They are very roomy for wide calved gals - I order extended calf in J Crew but in these I have room to spare even after tucking in jeans. If you are on the fence just buy them - they will not disappoint!

I'd also recommend: Paul Green

Beautiful!. Leather is so soft. I'm 6' tall and this size 11 boot hits my kneecap, 19 inches tall from floor. I have a high instep but not a problem in getting my foot in. There is heel slippage when I walk - not sure how to fix that. They might be going back. :(
