These boots are simply beautiful! The quality of the leather and workmanship is top notch and the fit is perfect. I have the dark brown color which I love. I think they run a little big and the half size lower than my usual size fit me better. I am petite at 5'3 and they hit me at just the right spot below the knee. I live in a warm climate so I have only gotten to wear them a few times so far, but when I have, they definitely turn heads. I have worn them with a skirt and with skinny jeans tucked in and they look awesome with both. They are very versatile boots and can be dressed up or down. I had also tried the plain Melissa Button boots, and they are also darling, but I found they look a little too cowgirl for my tastes. These are a more classic riding boot style in my opinion. They are totally worth the price and will stay in style and last for years!

Quality varies, (I own 3 other Frye boots). I originally got a size 8 though needed a 8.5. The 8 was beautiful! The 8.5 is not the same boot as the 8. I don't think Frye should have sent this pair out the door. The Zipper is not very straight making it harder to zip up. What if it breaks? Additionally, the leather is not black antique soft but too much antiquing or ruined by water or? May try another 8.5. Frye used to be made in US, (as for high cost), now made in Mexico. I know there is excellent craftsmanship by people in Mexico and nothing against all of you in or from Mexico. I think the guy/gal was just learning on my boot, or something. Also for Frye, for the price I wish you offered this boot with a taller shaft height of 16.5 or 17 inches. More so Frye, hope the people who made my boot in Mexico are making a decent wage.

I have been wearing Frye boots for years. I love the fact that not only are they made of beautiful leather on the outside, but they are completely lined with leather on the inside, making for a top quality, comfortable boot. The Melissa Back Zip is adorable! It has a great shape to it unlike most normal boots which seem to go straight up and down. These boots follows the contour of a leg, zipper and all! I got the fawn color which turned out to be exactly what I wanted. It reminds me of the color I see on many of the riding boots featured with jeans in some of the trendy magazine ads. It is kind of a neutral brown, not too dark, with a antiqued, weathered flair to it. I just love the color and finish of these boots! The 7½ was a perfect fit and as many have mentioned, comfortable right out of the box. Perhaps the most striking feature about these boots is their simplicity. They do not need all kinds of belts and buckles to look cool. They are classy, understated and elegant in a rustic sort of way. I cannot wait to zip these over my jeans tomorrow!

Hands down, I love these boots. Easy to get into, very comfortable wearing for long periods (I have 2 kids, one is a toddler, so comfort is imperative). Dressy enough to go with skirts, looks great with jeans -- fits over skinny's and even straight legs. Definitely worth the price as I plan to have these well-made boots for some time to come.

These boots are amazing! I bought Frye boots a while ago (1999) and they were amazing too. Then I bought two pairs of Frye (last year and two years ago) that were less impressive from a quality standpoint. These new boots are terrific, excellent quality. Made in Mexico, which may be the reason for the improvement? Anyway, I always have taken a 7 in Frye boots and I had to return these for 7.5. The footbed was too tight.

Just got these (dark brown brush off) and the Paige Tall Riding boots (also dark brown brush off) in the mail today. I couldn't decide between these two when returning my original order of the Melissa Button. The Melissa Button had been on my MUST HAVE list for years and my husband finally got them for me for Christmas this year. Huge disappointment. First off, they are impossible to get on. I was laying on the floor pulling and wiggling with all my might, and finally (covered in sweat) I got them on. Not flattering at all!! They are a gorgeous boot, don't get me wrong....but they just dont do that amazing leg lengthening thing that you want tall boots to do! I think its the curvy top and the fact that they could stand to be taller. Anyway, I read reviews for the Melissa Button Back Zip and the Paige Tall Riding boot and couldn't decide between the two so I ordered both and will be keeping the Melissa Button Back Zip!!! They are GORGEOUS!! I think they're better looking than the regular Melissa Button. They make my legs look so much longer and skinnier and the boot has a very sleek look! The Paige Tall are also incredibly gorgeous and are pull on but are MUCH easier to get on than the Melissa button and even the melissa button back zip, but they just aren't AS sleek and structured. They have a more slouchy and casual look which I'd totally be in to but I already have a pair of boots that fits that description...so back they go! The zipper on the Melissa Button back zip makes them much easier to get on than the Melissa button but there is still a bit of wiggling and pulling required but I'm sure that will ease with time. You seriously can't go wrong with this boot and the dark brown brush off is a gorgeous and timeless color that will go with any outfit! They are even dark enough to go nicely with black but aren't too dark to not fit the bill of a brown boot. Buy these!
