I have been wearing these boots for nearly six months straight now, and I am completely in love. Never before have I so appreciated something as basic as footwear. I actually came back to the product here on Zappos to order a spare pair just in case they ever die and I cannot find a replacement, only to find they were out of stock, and realized they deserved a review. The style is, well, perfect. A simple, classic looking design without garish accents or stitching. The black leather has so much subtle character out of the box that wears well and always looks great. The texture is soft yet firm, a pleasure to handle. They live up to every day wear quite well, taking the dings and scratches of my active nigh life in stride. I was worried about the side zip, as I have had boots fail there before, but these seem to be traveling just fine and have not jammed yet. They never seem to hold a negative odor, in fact they still have the sweet smell of premium leather. Every time I don these boots, which is nearly every day, I feel like a rock star, and receive compliments on them about every other week. A couple things to consider with this boot: I suggest a good hiking sock (I use the light, summer variety here in Texas). They have never seemed too hot. Although the zipper is holding up well, it is still a good idea to treat it with a little care. Hold the top of the boot up firm before moving the zipper to give a straight path. I have had the sensation of almost slipping nearly a dozen times in this boot, yet for some reason I always catch my self on my heels. I believe this is because of the rubber pad at the back of the heel. Whatever the issue is I have yet to fall in them, even on a wet dance floor. These are my first Frye shoes, and they have impressed me so much that I am gong to start picking up some of their other classic styles. The price tag scared me off at first, but I now believe they are worth every penny. So much in fact that I am going to stockpile a pair or two.

On arrival the left boot has a scuffed sole and a minor flaw in the leather. The right boot was okay, but very tight, and still is. After wearing them numerous times they are stretching, but I still use moleskin to protect my feet. Now the zipper on the left boot is detaching from the leather.

Great boot. Take a little time to break in. Other than that, very comfortable.

Great boot. This is my second pair of Frye boots, they last forever and always look great after a polish. If it scares you to buy a leather soled boot due to weather (I live in WI), take them to a cobbler and have a real thin Vibram rubber sole put on them. Works out great.

I like the waxed finish and the outside quality was good. I wish the inside leather was finished better and had a cushioned sole.

Great boot- great looking- stylish- get a half size bigger than you normally wear. A little breaking in required.
