Frye's current Harness Boots are rooted in tradition and continue to draw influence from the Cavalry. Today the classic Harness Boot holds a place in American culture. The Frye Harness Boot has been pictured in fashion spreads internationally. In 1938, on a trip to Washington, D.C., John A. Frye's grandson and namesake met a U.S. Navy Admiral who confided that he had trouble finding the Wellington boots he liked so much. As a favor, John agreed to make him a pair. Frye continued to fill requests for these boots through the Second World War. During World War II, Frye supplied thousands of servicemen with Frye Wellington boots, known as Jet Boots, by mail order.
In the 1960's, Frye reintroduced the Campus Boot, from its 1860 original, featuring a bulky toe and chunky heel that came to epitomize the attitude and the style of the 60's and 70's. There was nothing like these "new" Frye Boots on the market, and consumers began to demand "Original Fryes." When searching for items to represent the America of the 60's, the Smithsonian Institute chose a pair of Frye Boots.
The quality of all Frye shoes is timeless. For almost 150 years, Frye leather products have continued to be benchcrafted from the finest full grain leather uppers. It takes over 190 steps to make one pair of Frye boots. Frye remains dedicated to the commitment of craftsmanship for which Frye boots and Frye shoes have been known for more than 100 years.

I love these boots. They're beautiful and well made and just perfect. Except for Frye's seemingly incomprehensible idea that 15" constitutes an extended calf. The shaft of these boots is narrower than some non-extended boots I've tried on. It's disappointing for us ladies with real calf muscles, especially because for the cost I'm not willing to experiment with a cobbler to see if maybe we can stretch them another inch to make them comfortable to wear. Unfortunately, these are going back. Seriously, though - these are in no way extended calf and they're going to miss out on a lot of market share if they can't figure out how to make these boots to fit athletic women with non-stovepipe legs. Such a disappointment.Read more » « Show less November 14, 2012 by Anonymous

These boots are gorgeous, there's no doubt. However, it is rather perplexing that Frye lumps them into the same extended calf category as the Veronica Slouch and the Jane 14L. I have both of those boots and they provide me with plenty of room in the calf area. These boots (extended calf, cognac, 6.5) were extremely tight in the calf and bagged at the ankle. It's unlikely that I could get them on over skinny jeans, so back to Zappos they go. What a bummer.Read more » « Show less January 1, 2013 by Nancy

I love these boots. I wasn't sure how they would fit because for the circumference it said 16" and my calf measures 16 and 1/2". At first when I tried them on I wasn't sure because they were kind of tight but I've had them a week and they have stretched out perfectly and I wear them with everything! Definitely recommend these gorgeous boots.

My calves are 16" with jeans on. These boots fit great around my calves, not tight, not too loose. Unfortunately I have some problems with these boots. First, they way they are cut in the back, they go out like the shape of your calf, but then they curve back in at the very top. I still have about 2.5 inches of calf above that, so my calf bulged out and then back in. It looked very odd. If only the boots went straight up that last little bit they would look great! The second problem was inside on the footbed, where my heel ends and my arch begins, the boot has this ridge, so your heel is sort of cupped. I found it to be uncomfortable. The third problem was one of the boots I got was much narrower in the ankle than the other one, and very hard to get on and off! I'm pretty disappointed because they are just totally gorgeous and I've been wanting them for years! If the boots just had one of those problems I think I would have kept them, but I just can't pay this much for a pair of boots that aren't perfect. Back they go, sniff sniff.

I received my boots today and they are really beautiful. That being said, I'm on the fence on whether I'll be sending them back. I ordered the Extended Calf in Cognac, size 7. Normally, wide shaft boots are really loose on me (my calves measure 15.5") but these were really tight and bagged at the ankle. The foot part fit great, though. I had planned to wear them with skinny jeans but there is no way that will happen unless I can find a cobbler who can stretch the shaft.

I absolutely love these boots and get tons of compliments every time I wear them. I have a short, wide calf and have had an impossible time finding boots that fit, but these fit the bill perfectly. I love them so much that I just ordered the same pair in black.
