Wow! After thinking about/lusting after, and wondering for a long time how these badass engineer boots would fit my skinny chicken/sticks in flowerpots legs, I decided to take the plunge (having tried a couple of cheaper alternatives, and not having been happy with them). The price tag was a bit scary. I own other Fryes, Corral boots and Old Gringos, but this was the most I have ever paid for a pair of boots! But let me say that they are worth it. Having skinny legs and narrow feet, I have had no issues getting the boots on and off, and since the top and instep are adjustable, I was able to customize the fit. Yes, they are a little big around the ankle, and yes, they are somewhat stiff, but I think that these will rectify themselves as time goes by & the boots break in. They feel indestructible, and smell of yummy leather. Well worth the guilt-inducing price!

I'd also recommend: Old Gringo, Corral, Justin, Ariat, Durango

Not sure what is up with these shoes, but OUCH! There is not nearly enough vertical room for a foot to fit; and no amount of stretch can compensate. I own other Frye boots, and am familiar with how they break in. These are just....missing the mark, altogether. Very sad to send them back! I love their look.

After being torn between the Veronica Slouch and the Engineer 15R, I ordered the Veronica. Mistake! I returned them and ordered the Engineer. They arrived today (thank you Zappos!) and I am in greasy leather hot knee high bad ass boot heaven! The leather is substantial, the shape of the toe box is exactly what I wanted (the Veronica was not), and the fit is perfect. I ordered my true size (8.5). Having a high arch, I expected them to be a little challenging to put on, and I was not disappointed; but on they went, with the help of plastic bags. I don't want to take them off!

I'd also recommend: More Frye boots, BCBG, Coach

These boots are beautiful and so well made! I absolutely love them. My only issue is they are a little snug - I have a high arch and they can be difficult to put on and wear for extended periods of time. I wish I had ordered up but they are stretching out. I do have other Frye boots and don't have this problem with the others.

In my opinion, these are so much better (yet less expensive) than the Veronica Slouch which was my initial choice. I liked the variety of colors/finishes offered in the Veronica Slouch but the leather felt thin and unnatural. These are the real deal. The leather is thick, soft yet sturdy, and will age well. And you can still fold down the front as some like to do with the Veronica. I only wish they offered more color options but the gaucho color is classy and goes with black/gray as well as brown because of the black sole. I would recommend going up half a size and wearing thick boot socks or adding a heel insert to reduce any heel slippage/rubbing that may result. They may be too tight across the top of the foot if you get your normal size. They may stretch a little but not enough, based on my past experience with Fryes. Also, find a high quality natural beeswax-based product to keep them looking new if you plan to wear them often. My Harness 12Rs became dry and cracked on top of the foot after three years of heavy use because I failed to use a good quality breathable product on them!
