The perfect mix between comfort, fashion, and toughness. I weather proofed them and thanks to the traction these soles provide I can wear them in the rain or when there's some snow on the ground without worrying. I'm still breaking them in and yet the process has not been particularly painful or uncomfortable. I love that they are both functional and aesthetically pleasing!

This is a premium quality boot in appearance, materials and comfort. The "hammered" leather look is great for a jeans/outdoor boot. I normally wear a 10M. I sent back the 10M and found the 10.5M to be just right for wearing a heavy sport sock. The free return shipping process was convenient and relieved any concern with returns for sizing or other return issues. The high quality leather requires very little break-in. Not advertised as "waterproof" so I used Red Wing spray-on silicon waterproofing to enhance water resistance in snow and rain. I've only worn boots for a few weeks, so no long term experience to review, but am optimistic that these boots will perform well for many years...probably until I have to retire them for a velcro-strap sneaker.

I have lived the past couple years in the Frye James Lace Up boots. Not these, but the other ones with leather soles and the smallest wedge of rubber on the heel. I love the shape and style of them but had been going through pairs at a rate of about three per year. Once the heel wore down, the leather under the ball of the foot was surely next. I do not know if this lug version is new or that Zappos has simply started stocking them, but I am excited to finally have a pair of this style with a rubber sole (I am wearing them now). Not only do I expect their lifespan to be longer, but I will not slip and slide over wet pavement. It should also be noted that the black ones are not pre-coated with the faux-antique frosting as the other versions are. I hated that stuff. These (the black ones) have some sort of textured (hammered) finish which is much more elegant. I am a size 9 in Nike/Adidas/Puma sneakers but wear an 8 in these (both styles).

Gents, it's a great boot. As with most leather boots it will take some to break in. The color of the boot is better pictured on Frye's website and in person. The one in Zappos picture makes it much darker than desired. The best illustration I can give you on size is that I wear a size 11 in Nike. Undoubtedly, 11 is the best size for my Nikes. I ordered a 10.5 in the James Lug Lace up and could still squeeze more than a thumb width between my toe and tip of boot. Some might be okay with that because of the slightly narrowed dressier tip of this boot but it was just too much space for me to be comfortable with. I can't tell you the happy ending yet because I opted to change to the Johnny Lace up because of the seemingly wider toe and more casual appearance but they really are nice looking boots. I ordered a size 10 in the Johnny. Plus John is my name so it's more fitting. Wish me luck and good luck to you.

Given the price, I was a bit skeptical that Frye could deliver on this boot. Well, Frye did. It is a different look than most "heavy" boots and very well made. Overall break in period was minimal due to quality leather although the heel cup took a week or two to fully shape. The "whiskey" color is a bit lighter than expected but seems like it will weather to darker shade. Zappos delivered excellent service as usual.
