These boots are awesome! I was slow to get in on the boot trend that emerged last fall due to my skinny calves and short stature. I'm 5'2" and 95 pounds so a lot of boots are either too tall or the boot shaft circumference too large. Finding boots that fit your legs snugly can be a challenge for scrawny girls. The shaft of these boots ends approximately 1.5 inches below my knee and, due to the laces, the boot circumference can be adjusted to hug my bird-like legs. I am a size six and these boots fit me perfectly. The leather is thick, sturdy, shiny and such a beautiful color (i.e., I purchased the lighter brown color). The laces make the boots look totally badass. It's like a superhero boot got together with an equestrian boot and they had an awesome baby boot. These boots do scuff a little like other reviewers have mentioned, but a little clear polish remedies that. However, I think scuffs build a little character into the boot. They look awesome with everything I've worn them with and, despite the somewhat pricey nature of the boots, I have zero guilt. They are totally worth the price. These boots were made for kicking ass and will accompany me on many misadventures.

I was disappointed with these shoes. I noticed before wearing that the shoelace grommets were not properly seated on the inside of the shoe, and bits of extra leather lining were hanging out of them. After the first wearing the stitching on both tongues unraveled, and my boyfriend pointed out that one tongue was longer than the other - pretty bad if noticeable by a male. These boots cost so much so I expected that the workmanship would be excellent. It was very poor.

They are more brown than red as shown in the picture. Wished they looked more like they show in the picture.

Well crafted and classic boot style that will only get better over time. I bought the dark brown color and I'm thinking about adding to my collection. The leather is super soft but the heel cup rubs ever so slightly...I'm sure they just need to be broken in a bit more. I had to go up a size because my normal size was a tad snug with socks. These boots are definitely worth every penny!

I ordered these half a size down based on other reviews and wore them the first day that I got them because I had an evening planned. I wondered if I had made a mistake because they were not comfortable right out of the box. I broke them in at home by wearing thick socks and walking around the house a couple of days. I was finally ready to wear them out again and they felt so much better than the first time that I wore them out however, there is a tab that the laces pass through and the stitch started coming undone! I have skinny calves so this was not under stress. In any case, this should not happen after wearing them three times! I called Zappos customer service and they offered to pay for repairs which I did not find acceptable considering the price and supposed quality of Frye. A full refund was graciously offered and that was that. I got the dark boots on sale so I thought I was getting a good deal, but I guess not. They are cool boots but I was not up for the aggravation of sending out brand new boots for repair.

I'd also recommend: La Canadienne

These boots are fantastic if you have bigger calves because you can adjust the top and also make room for your skinny jeans. They are not hard to break in, the first day I got these I wore them for over 11 hours. Very comfortable...if you are use to wearing boots and understand leather starts off a little stiff!

Beautiful boots! Too bad they were so uncomfortable. They felt as if they would never break in enough. Had to send them back.
