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 feel sad to write a negative review about a pair of Frye boots as I am a longtime loyal customer, but I'm just so disappointed in these. First of all, the Black Calf Shine Vintage color is not "black" at all. It's sort of a charcoal gray with greenish undertones, and not in a pre-distressed way. No one would see these boots in a store and call them black. I just compared the leather quality to several other pairs of Frye boots around me (including the similarly-styled Veronica Slouch), and it's noticeably thinner. Huge bummer. Also, the heel isn't stacked! It's some sort of molded synthetic material with lines embossed in it. I spend money on Frye boots because I expect them to last at least a decade and to be repairable as needed. A plastic heel and thin leather that isn't even the right color? No thanks. I really hope this isn't an indication of the quality of all new Frye products.

Frye boots there is no wrong. These little boots looks great with leggings or in your boot cut jeans on your bike.

Love these boots! cute, comfy and make your foot look small. Other reviewers said it ran large, they were correct. Order a full size smaller and you will be happy.

Love the boots. Perfect comfort right out of the box. They are so well made and they look awesome. A few notes though to help other buyers. The photo does not come anywhere near to showing the amount of distressing. When I opened the box I was quite shocked because I wasn't expecting it. I thought I would send them back, but then they immediately grew on me. I did size down a half size and they are still slightly big. They do slip in the heal, but it causes no discomfort. Fabulous boot. Now I have to buy a non- distressed pair though.

I am a 9.5 typically, but Frye 9's work best for me. These are huge for a 9. My heel was slipping out. And they are very distressed, much of it gray. Not a true, all over black. Going back to my favorite, the Veronica Short. Same style but shorter heel, better leather, better looking, just better.
