This boot happened to be my first purchase from Zappos.com, as well as my first Frye brand boot. I must say, both companies lived up to the name. Zappos was fast and easy, with awesome information for the product. I don't think that online shopping can get any better. As for the boot, it was also up to the praise I have read on the internet for the Frye brand. I went with the Jackson style Engineer boot because of the toe shape and the low heel. I am not a fan of the squared off toe or the really thick chunky heels. I ordered a full size smaller than what I normally would, and they fit great out of the box. I will however be returning them though due to a small cut in the leather from the manufacturing process. I am worried that over time it could crack further and I would like to have them perfect out of the box. I do think that this is not the norm with these boots because other than that one issue they are flawless.

Made in Mexico, great looking boot, almost impossible to get on (they fit and are comfortable once on). Rear internal seam burst with a few wears, stitching near the buckle broke from pulling them on. the rear of the boot needs reinforcement so the boot doesn't crumple as your heel slides down into it. May work for smaller sized feet. Expected US made and higher quality for the cost. Next time will go Red Wing or spend more and get Alden.

I couldn't be happier with my purchase. The Frye boots fit true to size and were comfortable to wear all day as of the first wearing. They look dressy and people don't necessarily see them as bulky boots with jeans and semi-dressy clothes. I bought them to ride my motorcycle with, and they are perfect for that as well. No regrets with the price paid so far, though perhaps the "made in Mexico" thing explains a couple of pencil marks and one or two points of "iffy" stitching. Don't expect any problems with these very minor issues. Can't wait 'til winter!

Solid shoe. I've had my pair for about half a year, and have no problems. I wear a 9.5 sneaker normally, and ordered a 9. they were really tight to start, but the leather stretched a lot.I ended up getting some inserts to fill up the space after I broke them in and they're perfect now. I suggest ordering a half size or even a size smaller since the leather does stretch for a while after you start wearing them. I'd also recommend getting inserts for them if you aren't used to a boot, since they don't have the best shock absorption compared to other shoes (which you really start to notice after walking for a few hours on concrete). All in all, I'm glad I got them. I have a friend that has been wearing a pair of Frye harness boots for the last 6 years, and they are still in great condition. Frye makes a boot that will last.

The boot style speaks for itself -- classic. The brand Frye is a no-brainer and Zappos is of course the hands-down favorite when it comes to shoes, at all.
