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!

These are by far the most beautiful boots I have ever seen. I got them in cognac. The color, details, and overall style are amazing. They are however, going back. It breaks my heart but I can't zip them up. I have muscular calves and there is no way I can zip them over a bare leg let along over jeans. If you have very slender calves, buy these! They are gorgeous! Otherwise, I found them true to size. I wear a 7 in almost every shoe and these were a perfect fit in a 7.

This was my 6th pair of Frye boots. I almost didn't order these thinking they were constructed for skinny calves. I have an average size 14 1/4 inch calf and the boots fit perfectly with skinny jeans. Not too snug in the shaft. They felt slightly snug across the toe box initially, but quickly molded to my feet (average width). As with all my Fryes, I had to scuff up the leather soles a little to prevent them from being slick. The buttons up the side are very pretty and add a slightly feminine touch to the boot. I purchased the black.

Purchased the Melissa Military Tall boot in the Dark Brown Antique color and they are awesome. Lightly distressed and the color works with browns and blacks as well. Side "buttons" are a nice touch. Look great with jeans, skinny jeans, leggings, and dresses. Comfortable fit. No problems with the zipper. Snug on my 14" calf right now but being leather; they will probably stretch out some. I ordered two sizes based on the reviews (some say fit small and some say fit large). Size 7 fit me great. I usually wear size 7.5. Leather sole is SLICK on carpets - Will wear them outside to scuff that up for more indoor traction. If cost was not an issue - I would buy them in black as well!
