Great shoe. Heel slipped even though I ordered almost a full size down from what I normally am. Also, the shoe felt tight on my foot around the middle at first, but the leather just had to stretch out.

Well, I have had these shoes for about six months. I had the same pair last year, but the metal bar in the sole broke, making a squeaking sound every time I stepped. I returned them, and got a replacement pair. The replacement pair have been utter failures as well. The tongue stitching on the left boot has fallen apart, the heel broke off the right boot while walking to my office after two months, the stitching on the sole has come undone, and the rubber part of the sole has split in two on the right boot. All in all, I can safely say that I will never purchase another pair of Frye's again. At the absurd prices that they are selling them for, you expect some kind of satisfaction for quality. Before you chalk this up to one bad experience, I can also mention my girlfriend's Frye boots which arrived in the box with all kinds of stitching falling apart. Also, I had purchased another pair of Fryes around the same time which also suffer from inferior stitching. Do they look cool? Yeah. But they are definitely not worth the money they are asking for. They have been a headache to own since I bought them. Frye boots are awful quality and overpriced.

Awesome shoe...I have had so many comments on how nice they look and they feel great the first time you put them on.

After trying the James Chukka in dark brown (had a red-ish tint) and James Crepe Chukka in Cognac (had an orange-ish tint), I settled on the Oliver Chukka in dark brown. The Oliver had a little bit different look and feel compared to the other Frye shoes as well as to most other chukkas I saw on Zappos and in stores. The dark brown is a dark chocolate brown - maybe a little browner than dark chocolate, but dark. The leather is not as soft and supple as the others. It feels like the kind of leather that will look even better as it ages. The finish is less polished than the others and I wasn't looking for a bright and shiny shoe. The sole rubber covering about 3/4 which grips the floor much better than the full leather sole of the James. I feel that the shoe runs slightly small. I normally am a size 11, which I ordered and do work, but I believe an 11.5 also would have worked. I also feel that the shoe is slightly narrow but not enough to be a problem. The shoes are reasonably comfortable out of the box but will take some wearing to fully break-in the somewhat stiff leather. The shoe comes with three pairs of eyelets for laces. I prefer the look of the two eyelet pairs and I only lace the bottom two. The heel slips some but I attribute that to them being new (and to not using the top eyelet pair). But I like this will diminish over time. Overall I like the shoe very much and don't feel like every other chukka wearer out there.

Fits a bit snug across the toes. Perhaps a half size larger would be a good idea. The fit and finish are undeniably good though...they feel very well stitched together and high quality, thick leather helps!

I'd also recommend: Ben Sherman, To Boot New York

I purchased four pairs of Frye Chukkas and returned all of them except for this model. I like my toe caps to be just a little bit pointy and all the other models were much too round. The leather is very raw so you will need to spend some time to break in the shoe.

I love these shoes. I looked quite a while for some Chukka boots and wanted something versatile and well made. After they arrived, I wore them every day for a week. They look great with jeans or khakis, and I have gotten quite a few compliments on them. I will probably be buying these in another color soon, and will definitely consider Frye one of my preferred brands. These are highly recommended!
