These boots are magical... They looks amazing, receive compliments, and make you more confident, and bring you good luck. I wore them 4 days in a row to break them in while wearing them. This is what happened: Day 1) Killed it a job interview, got the job offer later, now workin' like a boss. Day 2) With Linsanity at its height, I went to the bar for the Lakers/Knicks game. Lin scores 38 and the Knicks won (coincidence?)... I then went home with my friend's friend back to her place. Day 3) Went out to catch up with my buddy, and while buying tacos met a pair of ladies. After oogling my shoes, I picked up the digits. Day 4) I met Chuck Norris, and he said nice boots. I then roundhouse kicked him and he exploded. And, for those keeping track at home, that is why there are no more Chuck Norris jokes. Will you be able to fly after buying these? Probably.... Will you pick up supermodels? Wouldn't doubt it.... Will you win the lottery if you pick these up? Start looking for fuzzy dice for your yacht... This is a must have for any man's closet.

I have four pair of Frye boots and this is the first pair I can't recommend. They will not break in after repeated attempts of shoe cream and painful wearing to get the very stiff leather around the toe to soften. When I questioned Frye about the issue they had no answer other than to break them in. You think Frye?

The cut and style of this boot is great. Just what I was looking for. But the distressed look is pretty cheesy with gunky white wax all over to make it look worn in. But they just look dirty and dull. Wished they'd let each person wear them in the ways they liked. The sizing is also way smaller and narrower than given. I take a size 10, but couldn't get into one. The width is also so narrow I had to go to an 11 to make it all fit. Be warned that the bottom is leather with no rubber, so they are dangerous in wet icy weather. In short they were built for a fashion model in a photo studio, rather than for real people using them outdoors in all-weather life. They look nice, but be careful...

The best pair of boots that I've ever owned. The fit and construction is remarkable. The leather is soft but sturdy. I've had this pair of boots for over a year and have worn them consistently, and I have to say, they only get better with age. The miles I've walked have only added character and value. Don't be afraid to get them dirty; they'll stand up to the test all on their own.

I'd also recommend: Red Wing

Great boots, these are my first pair of Frye boots and I have been very happy with them so far. They do have quite a bit of gray color applied to the leather and initially I wasn't sure I would like it, however the look of the gray is complementary when you are actually wearing them. They look great with jeans and the coloring gives them a broken in look. On the other hand, actually breaking them in does take some time, after three weeks, the leather is starting to limber up a little, no complaints though.

These are amazing boots. They look and feel great, and the two studs on the top are sooo convenient for slipping them on and off quickly without hurting your feet at all. The only two downsides are that the sole is very slippery, and that the shoe comes with an ugly antiqued powder look. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the boots take well to polish, and really should be polished to bring out the best of the leather. I am 100% happy with mine after I polished them black. Buy and enjoy.
