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.

The Engineer 8R boot in charcoal goes with everything and is very sturdy and supportive. The first night I wore these boots I stepped into a NW Pennsylvania pothole and would have sprained if not broken my ankle if not for the sturdiness of this boot. Thanks Frye! I had difficulties getting my foot into the boot until I acquired a long handled shoe horn which solved the problem. I have some less expensive boots that I'll never wear again since experiencing the quality of Frye.

One can always count on Frye for a timeless, excellent quality boot. I have the Engineer 8R in black and sand, and they have become my go-to footwear. They look cute with shorts, skirts and jeans.

It breaks my heart to send these back. I have two pairs of the same boots that are a couple years old, in black and brown. I wanted to try a grey pair so I ordered in the exact same size. Sadly the new boots are cut a bit differently. The circumference of the top of the boot is much, much bigger in the new pair. Even with thick socks, the boots have a large gap around my ankle. It is not just big - it is comically big, and there is no way to tighten the opening (the small strap is already at its tightest setting). My older pairs have only a small gap that is barely noticeable. My ankle also slips in these, whereas the other boots fit just fine. I felt silly wearing the new pair, so I returned them.

Breaking in a pair of these boots is fine if you have nothing else going on in your life. I couldn't believe how I was mangling myself like a geisha in order to look tough in a pair of cowboy boots. I'm a reliable 9 with high arches, and it took extreme 10-15 minute effort to jam these boots on while wearing nylons. I appreciate what other reviewers said about high arches and the effort of breaking these in, but I don't live anywhere near a cobbler and I'm stuck out in the country, with a baby, and I need a pick-me-up, not a problem. I would've tried the 9.5 if it was in stock so this story might've had a happier ending. FYI, the Frye website says to try these boots on in the afternoon when your feet are biggest and with a pair of thick socks. Zappos, you're mad geniuses for the way you run your website and I'm deeply grateful for how easy you made the return process.

This boot felt true to size once it was on, but it was very, very difficult to get it on one of my feet. I couldn't keep it if it was going to take several minutes to get it on. Disappointed in this one.
