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.

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!

These boots are beautiful and comfortable. Gives alittle bit of height but not where they are too high. Looks great with skirts and pants. I wear these all day and my feet still feel good at the end of the day. I am extremely busy and do not want to be distracted by sore achy feet. Definitely recommend these!!

Ended up returning these because I was so disappointed in the color. I got a black calf vintage color hoping it'd be a nice worn down black boot, but when I opened the box it was more of a green/gray color! It just looked...yuck! In terms of fit they were super comfortable. I usually go up half a size in Frye boots because my feet are a little wider/I have a higher arch. My feet slipped in perfectly with these boots and I probably didn't have to go up the half size since it does make my feet look a little bigger. Unfortunately they're sold out in size 8 - otherwise I would've tried this style again, it's a good quality boot for the price. But definitely in a different color!

Over the years I have amassed quite a collection of Frye boots, and over the years I have seen the quality of these boots plummet. I bought the Vera Short in the Winter of 2013, and within 10 wears the leather trim around the heel began to peel off. No biggie, Frye has a warranty. I shipped them off for a repair. They were returned to me in terrible condition--there was obvious glue smears, and the leather that is supposed to mimic a stacked heel wasn't lined up. What's worse, it too began to peel after a couple of wears. Paying for shipping them back for returns seemed like a waste of money considering the 'repair' on the first go-around. This is the last pair of Frye boots I will be purchasing.

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.
