As a college student, I decided to step away from my lazy girl UGGS look and opt for something new and different--particularly, a boot that’s more durable and lasting than my UGGS. I’m so glad I found myself some Fryes because these are seriously some kick *** boots! I’m a size 5.5 in shoes, but in boots, I definitely need a little more room when I wear socks so I got them in size 6. Then came the hardest part of all: deciding between the 8R or 12R and the color black or gaucho! In the end, I chose the 8R, and I’m glad I did because if the boots were any higher it probably would’ve been overwhelming since I’m super petite. After going for the 8R, I HAD to buy both boots in gaucho and black so I can choose between them. I wanted to like the black so badly since it’s often the more popular one that fashionistas wear, but I guess I wasn’t motorcycle-tough enough (not exactly saying that you have to be) to rock these in black, if you get the drift. So I decided to stick with gaucho, which is also such a beautiful color. It still definitely has that tough-girl feel to it, especially with its rough, worn-out looking texture that makes the boot look more structured than the black, which made the boot look a bit flat and nearly rain-boot-ish on me. These are definitely your not-so-average everyday kind of boot, and they are seriously made to last! Now I can save myself from looking so typical and sloppy everyday in my worn out Uggs. Thank you Zappos!!!

Nice looking boots, couldn't get them on. I love the look of these boots, but it just took way to long to get them on. I realize that leather is tough, but for the amount of money paid for the boots I should be able to get them on without a huge fight. I couldn't help but see myself at a friend's house fighting in embarrassment trying to get my expensive boots on. I don't have super wide or extra large feet, but I just tried and tried and couldn't get 'em on. I had to return them much to my dismay. I did on the other hand order the Ugg Endell's which arrived the very next day (thanks Zappos!) and go on easy and fit like a dream!

Okay, I have had my eye on these for months, hoping the price would drop. It didn't - went up, actually - so I finally pulled the trigger and bought them. WOW! I love them. I know what others have said about the size, but my pair is true to size. My feet are a bit narrow and usually an 8 or 8 1/2. These are the perfect length, no trouble getting them on, and after two days of wearing them all day, no blisters. The heel cup is a bit roomier than I'd like, but allows for heavy socks. I am psyched. Oh, one other thing - because the toe is so rounded, I was afraid they'd make my feet look big. They don't at all. My feet actually look sort of cute and short. <3 True Love.

I've been wanting to get these boots for at least 5 years now...never wanted to pay the money to get these but finally did and LOVE these! frye boots are worth every penny, I love that they are made in the USA. But the style and quality are timeless. I know I'll never have to buy a pair of short brown boots again. I wear a size 8 but in these I have always worn a 1/2 size down. They take about a week to break in, but nothing like bloody ankles are anything. They are a bit heavy, but it's kinda like a work out. But you get used to the weight after wearing them for a while.

I'd also recommend: dr. martens, clarks

These boots will make any outfit look even better. They are so cute and make me very happy. I was confused by the reviews saying they need breaking in and that it might hurt, so I walked around in my house with the size 7 all day. They were tight and my feet hurt too much to do anymore breaking in the next day so I just bought a half size up and its all good now. I would suggest getting a half size up from the size that you would take in flats.

Arrived fast. High quality leather and craftsmanship. Great accurate fit. Service was friendly and professional. I was treated as a VIP. Well worth the money. I like not having to pay S&H. Will buy again from Zappos. Thank you!
