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 am in love! I have been eyeing a pair of Frye's boots for a couple of years and finally took the plunge and splurged. And I will never be the same ever again. Size: I usually wear a 8.5 or 9 in regular shoes, and I ordered 8.5. It fits well, with enough room in the toe box to wiggle my toes. Calves: My calves aren't excessively large. Runners' calves, I guess it what I would describe them as. Circumferences around both calves are 14.5 and 15. They fit well into these boots. The first time I put on these boots, I kinda have to zip it up slowly (so I won't catch my skin), but after a week's worth of wearing, they fit great around the calves. Not too tight. but just right (you can put a finger into the boot). I bought the black vintage smooth. And it is pretty. Not too shiny/glossy. Just a nice, classy smooth black leather. I have worn skinnies and leggings and dresses with these boots. It can go dressy or a little causal. Style: I was going back and forth the regular Melissa button and Paige, but settled on this back button style. The button and zip at the back add a nice touch. A classy understated functional adornment - not gaudy. Comfort: Yes. No breaking in time at all. For work this week, I have worn it 4 days out of 5 days. It is comfortable! I am itching to buy another one! I will go for a brown on my next splurge.

I was looking for a pair of good quality, classic boots. These fit the bill. One note is that these are a great choice if you have smaller calves - these aren't too wide like other boots on me.

These are very stylish boots and I made the decision to buy them based solely on the reviews on Zappos. I typically wear a size 7 and ordered a size 7 in Dark Vintage Brown. However, the shoes felt loose. I really liked the style and leather and wanted to give it another shot. Zappos service was stellar in getting a 6.5 over to me right away. They were tight but I think they would have loosened up after a few days of wearing. However on the right boot, the arch support felt weird. It was uncomfortable. So unfortunately I ended up returning them.

I'd also recommend: Lucky Brand

Skinny-calved girls, rejoice - these will work! I have little bird legs, and I'm pleased with the fit of these. I'm happy that I wouldn't have to take these in to a cobbler to get taken in, which always adds about $60 to the price of any boot I buy. HOWEVER, I question the quality. I have Frye shoes and short boots, both of which I am very happy. But the first pair I ordered of these boots had misplaced snaps on the top. The snaps were a little off, so that the tab was loose when fastened, not flush with the boot. (I hope that makes sense.) The bottom tabs at the heel seem to be fine. ALSO, the shafts of the boots are ever so slightly different heights! WHAT? I noticed it in the mirror, so I took then off and compared them. Sure enough, one of the boot shafts is a good 1/2cm shorter than the other. Not much, but as I say I did notice it in the mirror. I am going to order another pair, hoping that the flaws were just a fluke. They had better be perfect at this price!

I love these boots, in fact I already have them in brown. I have been looking for a gray boot and decided the style was so good and the fit was so awesome that I would just order another pair in gray. Well, they came in today and I was so excited to unwrap them and wear them, but they are going back. Frye's version of gray is actually brown with a tinge of gray, definitely not gray enough to wear with a gray sweater and jeans or black leggings and a long top. I'm so disappointed.
