I so wanted these to work. They are gorgeous boots! I purchased the Gaucho color, size 7.5. (that is my consistent shoe size in boots and sneakers). The left boot fit fine, didn't have trouble getting into it at all. The right boot required the plastic bag trick, and once I got it on it was just not comfortable. I think if I had stuck it out and worn them consistently they would have stretched and been fine. I just don't have the time. The other reason these went back was there was what appeared to be a slice in the boot between the leather and the sole on the heel of the right boot.These are just too pricey to have any imperfections in them. So back they went.

These boots are exactly what I wanted. They are so cute with everything. I've worn them with skinny jeans, leggings, skirts, dresses and I plan to wear them with some cut-off shorts this summer! (Hello trashy!) They are very well-made and take some breaking in but are well worth it. I was worried about my atheletic calves but they fit fine. They are fine for browsing the mall or riding my sportster. I've worn them almost everyday since they arrived! Best boots ever! The only thing that I would like to change is the height of the shaft. I am 5'7 and they come up to about 3 inches below my knee. I wish that Frye made a 17R but they don't. I really wanted them to come all the way up to my knee. Other than that, they are perfect.

You cannot go wrong with the Frye Engineer 15R! Or with ordering through Zappos. Free shipping both ways makes trying these wonderful boots a no brainer. Like other customers, I have to agree that at first they are difficult to get on. However that goes away with time and wear. These boots run true to size. I wear them all the time with tall socks and skirts - and always get compliments. I am a teacher and am on my feet all day and they are as comfortable as the day is long! If you are going to something a little edgy or industrial then these are what you want. I only wear Frye boots.

I was surprised by some of the sizing reviews on this product. For me it was consistent with all other Frye products I own. I am a narrow 7.5 in flat shoes and a 7 in high heels (4"+) and always buy a 7 in Frye (harness boots, heels, etc.). This boot was no exception. If sizing is in question, order your *normal* size in Frye. This boot is very attractive and comfortable straight out of the box. Even though I have very muscular, athletic calves, they fit over a lightweight, narrow leg jean. At 5’2”, they hit me 1-2" below the bottom of my knee cap. The brown color is very attractive - casual, but rich and prone to developing a very nice patina, rather than looking scratched. One note: Purchase a long-handled boot/shoehorn if you don’t have one already. These are tight to put on over the instep, especially when brand new (not a problem once they are on, just a potential problem while pulling them onto your leg). A shoehorn helps immensely.

Someone on here called these her boot soulmates and I have to agree. I have them in black, size 8 and the gaucho, size 7 1/2. The black ones I have are very stiff, thick leather with an even texture and I personally found them very difficult to break in - in the end I just wore them on a long walk – couldn’t wear them again for a month afterwards (could barely wear ANY shoe for a month afterwards!), but now they’re perfect - and my feet recovered. The gaucho ones took no breaking in at all, they were comfortable immediately - a little difficult to get over my high insteps, but this will become easier in time - the leather is softer and more grainy in places on this pair. It’s difficult to find Frye boots which are a perfect fit - sometimes you have to try on several pairs in one size to find the perfect pair - not to mention the fact that their quality control can leave something to be desired – but it’s worth it in the end. Take no notice of people who insist that certain styles definitely run big or definitely run small; all that you can do, is order your own size and take it from there – everyone’s feet are different and sometimes the size which fits you can depend on the type of leather used.
