If you love the Engineer 12R, you'll love this! I think I'm a true 6.5 in boots and almost always a 6 in flats (and by the way, weirdly a 5 in Minnetonka Kilty mocs). Medium-width foot. This might help anyone regarding my Frye purchase history from Zappos: 6 in Harness 12R where most people size down 1/2-size, 6.5 in Engineer 12R (great fit), and well, I mistakenly bought a 7 (tad too long) in Veronica Slouch that I kept. Shaft height for Vera Short is pretty much the same as the Engineer 12R. But the best part of VS is a higher heel that makes me look taller and lengthens my legs! 6.5 in both styles fit well, but the VS is just slightly narrower across the foot than the more boxy-shape of the E12R. Might be bad if you have a wide foot but for medium-width feet like mine, I really think that the leather will break in, just like my Harness 12R did within 1-2 weeks of wear by this somewhat sedentary reviewer! Best feature of VS versus the E12R: the softer leather in the shaft! I still haven't broken in the E12Rs that I bought last year and one day, I walked maybe only 6-7 blocks and the stiff bend/crease of the leather totally rubbed my achilles heel area raw, but these boots will not do that. The leather on the shaft of VS is comparable to the soft, thinner leather of the soft Veronica Slouch boots that I have in black (forgot which finish). The stitching and/or tags around the top of the boot against bare skin is a bit scratchy but I intend to wear these with leggings anyway (and moleskin tape on the inside of the boot can solve the scratch). Zappos rocks -- ordered my boots with a great rep over the phone as a VIP member after the cut-off time and these somehow still made it to me with the next-day shipping guarantee! Few more random comparisons from my recent shopping with Zappos: I'm a 6 in Sorel Joan of Arctic, 6.5 in Naughty Monkey Jump Start, and a 6 in women's Ugg boots.

This is probably the most comfortable Frye boot I have ever worn. It broke my heart it return them (I miss them still). I could not believe the heel wore down in a mere three weeks! Not only did the rubber wear away, but it was to the point where I was wearing away the heel itself. I then bought a different style, and the same thing happened! What has happened to Fyre's quality? It certainly is not what it used to be!

I love these boots! I have wanted a pair of Frye boots for a while now, and I spent several months debating whether or not I would break down and spend the money and which style I would get. I think that the Vera Short boots were the best choice for me. I am very short, and the thick heel on these boots is perfect because it gives me just a little bit of extra height. The boots are so comfortable to walk in too! I have worn them all day long at work, and I have not really had to break them in. The insoles molded to my feet after only a couple days of wearing them. The leather is also very soft and smells great. There are only two cons about these boots. If you have very thin calves like me, they will flop around a lot and make noise as you walk, because they are slouch boots. But that is not too bad if you wear them over skinny jeans. I think they would look too bulky on my legs if I wore them over bare legs with a skirt or dress. The second con is, the instep of the boots is very narrow. Although I have rather small, narrow feet, I found that the instep of the boots was a bit tight right out of the box. But they have gotten a bit looser as I have worn them, so that is no big deal. But these boots probably will not be comfortable for people with wide feet. Overall, I would say that these boots were great quality and an excellent purchase. They are true to size and are comfortable to wear right out of the box. I will wear them for years to come.

Perfect boot with jeans. I finally a heel and platform without looking like you have heels on.

I tried this in black, which was on the grey side, and thought it was okay, but not good enough. It's a very chunky shape overall, between the blocky heel and the stubby toe. Not refined enough to wear with skirts--at least not for me. The Great Boot Search continues.

Love. Comfy, cute, versatile. I only had one day of "break in" and I've worn them gobs since with absolutely no issues. Love. (Did I mention that?)
