Love these boots! I have wanted a pair of Fryes for quite some time and am glad I took the plunge. I am a 7.5-8 with wide feet and I went with the 7.5. When I say I have wide feet I mean that it's generally hard for me to find 'cute' flats/sandals/heels that don't look gross with my wide feet. That being said - I have never purchased a pair of 'wide' shoes; so use your judgment when considering how wide your feet may be in comparison to mine and thinking about these boots. I think I maybe could've gone with the 8, there may have been a bit more wiggle room for my 'wide' feet, but the 7.5 is by no means too small. I wear these all the time since I got them, with skirts, with skinny jeans, to work, on weekends - love them! I'm sure they will last me for years to come. These boots are no joke, you can kick some serious butt in these and look good while doing it!

Really wanted to like this boot, but just did not. Shaft on one seemed set badly--jammed into the front of my shin. Leather not as pretty as I had hoped--looked cheap. And weirdly both too small and too large. Going back!

Overall this was the boot I was looking for. Unfortunately I literally couldn't get my foot in the boot. So disappointing.

These boots are incredible. They do require breaking in, with initial difficulty sliding my feet into them. Once I got my feet in, they felt like they were home. High quality materials. It is not often that I think of my size 12 footwear as cute, but these are! The width is good for my slightly wide feet. There is sufficient wiggle room in the toe box, which is the way that it is supposed to be. I am looking forward to years of enjoying these. Why did I wait so long?

First of all, Zappos is Amazing! It took me a few different sizes to figure out what was the best fit. Usually an 8 in heels, 8.5-9 in sneakers and 9 in boots. 8.5 in engineer fit best. Toe box is generous so I wear thick sox and still ultra comfy. I have high instep and wider feet. No problems getting feet in. I fell in love with the Gaucho color and decided after 2 weeks I must get them in Black too. Black leather is stiffer and can't wait for them to break in. I opted for 12r as the upper circumference comes right under the widest area of my calf and is flattering. I also have 16 in athletic calves and was so happy the boots fit. Great with skinny jeans, under bootcut jeans and skirts and dresses. I will wear these till they fall apart. They are so comfy and stylish that I have been living in them since i got them. Thank you Zappos for being the best in customer service after so many tries. I am a customer for life. Please dont change a thing. I would rather deal with tou then take a chance with another company, even if they have a slightly better deal.

I'd also recommend: Dansko, Alegria,Cole Haan

I really wanted to love these boots! I love the style of these boots, but, wow, do they hurt! They are tough to put on, but manageable. These boots rubbed the tops of both of my feet at my ankles where the buckle leather crosses and at the top of the boot. I think the best way to describe them is that they are very constructed. The leather is not soft at all, the top of both boots rubbed both of my shins. I thought perhaps they would loosen up a bit, but after wearing them for a bit around my house, they were showing no signs that I would be able to tolerate them any time soon. I was not able to remove them without assistance, and even that was painful due to the highly inflexible leather buckle strap that crosses at the ankle. Comfort wise, these failed miserably. I currently own three other pair of Frye boots, which I love. I ordered in my regular Frye size.

I really wanted a solid pair of boots for my upcoming trip to Japan where I would be doing a lot of walking. The first pair of Fryes I tried were the Veronica Slouch. They were really comfortable but because the boots were so soft I didn't want to risk the shaft becoming too slouchy. Since the boots are more expensive than what I normally buy I wanted them to keep their shape. I ordered these in the 12r and the 15r, because of my thick calves (14.75in) the 15r were way too tight. I couldn't even get the 15r all the way up my calf! Then onto the 12 r which were way better. I have pretty wide feet and a high instep so I sized a half size up. The boots are a little long on length but is perfect in width. My right foot has a higher instep than my left so the top of my foot was crowded against the boot. I took one of the boots to a cobbler to get the instep stretched. After two times of getting it stretched (because I didn't want to experience the pain of breaking them in) the boots fit great! These boots are heavy duty and the first time I wore them out I had zero pain! Nada! I'm happy I sized up and got one of the boots stretched. It was a long process finding these boots and making them work for me. I'm glad I did, they look amazing even though I'm short with short legs. ;)
