These Melissa Military boots are Frye with flare - all you expect from Frye with a soup on of unique. Buy them! In the interest of full disclosure, let me recap my experience. (1) The smell of fine leather out of the box intoxicates. The feel of the leather soothes the fingertips. (2) I ordered them in antique brown, a rich deep color that I wear with earthy colours, but they pair splendidly with my largely black wardrobe too. (3) The inside zipper slides all the way to your instep, making them easy to get on and off. (3) The saucy buttons running down the sides add statement - even give a nod to Steampunk - but the boots are sufficiently understated for work. Drawbacks: Sizing. (1) I am 5'8", not athletic, but never considered my calves large. These boots drove me to a tape measure. Sure 'nough, they're "big" - 15.5 inches. And yep. Initially these boots were hard to zip up all the way. But I adored them. So I did something radical that may appall some readers: I doused the upper shafts with rubbing alcohol, inside and out. Then zipped those babies up, and cleaned house in them. Now they zip up easily over my (apparently) chunky calves and accommodate leggings and skinny jeans tucked inside. (2) I wear an American 8, but usually am more comfortable in a European 38 (instead of a 39 - high instep). I ordered these boots in an 8; I wish I'd gotten them in. 7.5. They look a bit long when I look down at my feet but they look so fine, I'm over it! Get a notion about how these boots fit and look from other customers' reviews. Make your sizing decisions, AND BUY THESE BOOTS! It's been a tough winter a we all deserve a little indulgence. :-)

I'd also recommend: Frye, Frye, Frye. (also love my 2 pair Dansko boots)

I received these a few weeks ago and at first wasn't overly impressed compared to the other 6 pairs of Frye boots in my closet. But I kept looking at them, trying them on, and looking at them some more. The more I looked and tried, the better I liked them. I'm wearing them for the first time today and they are really wonderful! They fit perfectly right out of the box. I have a 6.5 narrow foot and slim calves. The foot fits perfectly and the shaft fits my calves just right with room for skinnies. No gaps! Got them in the black and love the silver studs and silver zipper, which works easily and smoothly. Very comfortable! The only thing I would change would be the sole - wish it was a rubber lug sole like other Fryes. But overall, a must-have for slim calves!

Beautiful boots. My first Fryes and so far definitely worth the money. True to size and a little stiff but comfortable out of the box. These are for SKINNY CALVES. I measure around 13.5 calf circumference and these fit a little loose in tights and perfectly with skinny jeans. Finally boots for my calves!

Beautiful! Soft and loved the detail. Unfortunately wouldn't zip up all the way. I've never have had a problem with my calf muscles getting in the way. Guess that gym time is paying off?

These are beautiful boots. I usually get size 9 1/2, and they fit nicely, (better than the 9's). I've looked for these boots everywhere. Frye's are pricey, but should last for many years. I am an elementary teacher, (on my feet 10 hours a day), with narrow feet. I think they'll be great with a skirt or pants.
