I just got mine and I love them! I got the cognac color, it looks a little darker in person but I almost like it better than the picture. The size fits perfectly. For people who have had trouble getting their foot past the heel; a woman at a shoe store told me when you first get a boot like this you need to use a plastic bag to slip your foot in initially, and that you should wear them around the house for a bit to wear them in. It worked great for me!

I purchased a pair of knee high Frye boots after being recommended by someone who wears Frye for everything including horseback riding competitions. I loved them when I received them and although they felt a little small in the ball of my foot, I wore them. They did become more comfortable and shape to my feet. After about 10 months the heels began to show serious wear. At about 11 months the heel binding completely ripped and they are no longer wearable. I am so disappointed! I never thought that boots that cost this much would fall apart so quickly. I have had many other leather boots from other companies and have kept them for years, getting minor repairs done. These were the most expensive pair and the fastest to fall apart even though I wore them no more than once a week. I have returned them (because Zappos is awesome) and I will look for a new pair of boots, from another company.

Getting your foot into the boot has to do with two things: 1) how high your arch is---mine is quite high and hits the top of the boot way before the heel can slide in; 2) how open your ankle joint is---if you can flatten out the top of your foot in line with your shin hinging the joint fully open you have a better shot at getting in. If you have high arches and/or feet that don't point sharply (open ankle joints) this isn't the boot for you. In fact, most pull on boots with a slim-to-the-ankle fit will not make it over your foot. Bodies are built in all kinds of ways---not every boot is for every body.

Do not listen to any of the negative reviews about these boot because they are absolutely gorgeous. I have them in Stone Wash and they are fabulous. The pictures online actually do them no justice at all. In person, they are a beautiful distressed grey color and after putting the weatherproofing cream, they are a tad darker and look even better. As for sizing, I find they run true, maybe a tad big. I am a true size 7 (my normal Frye size as I have the Veronica Slouch and James Lace Up) and they are perfect and not tight at all. I might put in my insoles to make them a bit more snug, but otherwise they are great. The calf is nice and tight too, but not too tight. My calf measures about 14" around, and these fit like a glove almost, so word to ladies with larger calves to avail of Zappos' free returns in case these are too tight. Also, I am 5'2" and these boots just hit below my knees, which looks great with skinny jeans and dresses. The shaft is a similar height to that of Hunter's tall boots if that helps. Overall I am extremely satisfied and these are definitely worth the high price tag.

PERFECT flat riding boot! I was looking for just the right flat riding boot for about a year. Well, this is it! I chose the hammered full grain leather - expensive, but worth it. I get a lot of compliments. I love that it's a slip on. No zippers or closures. The shape of the shaft is perfect: a little bit of a straighter shape. The straps around the ankle are a perfect touch. They are a perfect blend of sophisticated polish, and downtown cool. Perfect for any and all occasions! I am usually a size 6.5, and reading a couple of other reviews, I thought I would have to size up, which I did. I ordered a size 7, and it was too big. I exchanged for a 6.5, and it's perfect. Roomy enough for thick socks too.
