These boots are amazing. I've owned a pair of Frye Harness boots for about 2 years now and I have to say I already prefer the Engineer. First of all, let me say I'm a size 8.5 (narrow feet, small calves), I ordered a size 8 and I still have room to wear thick socks in the winter. The rounded toe box is much more comfortable for people with longer (ie monkey) toes such as myself. The color (sand) pretty much goes with everything, and the arch support is totally there. Right out of the box they were comfortable and easy to slip on. So I would say order a half size down if you have narrower feet, and an average ankle/calf (the adjustable strap at the opening is so clutch). Buy quality, you won't regret it.

I am disappointed. I love the look, love the brand, love the materials. But it still looked like I was wearing my husband's boots, or a little boy is wearing his daddy's grown-up boots. They did not look right with regular jeans, or skinny jeans, or a dress. And I usually like the rugged tough look; I am not a girly-girl. Also, the feet move a lot when walking; I could only imagine the blisters to come if I kept them. Unless you have very wide feet, then these may be just what you are looking for. Oh, I really wanted them to work for me.

Due to being a plus-size gal with wide feet, I thought I could never rock a pair of Frye's - such great boots, but the talls ones had such a small circumference. Not with the Engineer! Yes, they were snug at first (I usually wear a wide 9, but since they don't come in wide I opted for a 9.5). I wore them a lot and had them stretched at a shoe shop. They now fit perfectly after a week of owning them and I couldn't be happier. Amazingly, after a day of wearing them to stores and to a concert (standing for 2 hours), when I got home and kicked the boots off, my feet didn't hurt! No blisters, nothing. Quite impressive, I must say. I also know that these boots will last forever as my bff has at least 3 pairs she has worn the crap out of for 10 years. I highly recommend these boots!

I love my boots. The color was way cooler than I expected and they fit true to size. I would never wear them bare legged (ouch!) but really cute with skinny jeans or leggings. I little stiff but I think they will work out through time.

These are great boots. They're well-made and comfortable, though I need to use orthotics in them. So glad I got them!

First off - Love this boot! Got this in Sand, nice light tan coloring. Took me a few tries to get the right fit. I usually fit in a 8.5 or 9 in most cases except the occasional 8. First ordered the 8.5 took a lot of work get on, where the 9 still took some work but not as much. Thought it was the better choice to go with the 9. Now that I have had them on outside several times very happy with my choice. Look great, feel good, and the leather smells so nice. Already started to save up for the next pair I want to buy. Want to try out the Engineer 12 R W in black or maybe gaucho.
