I was actually afraid to try these boots because I have wider feet and a high instep and Fryes were always too narrow or pinched at my instep. The leather in Fryes is usually thick and heavy and bogs my feet down, but not these! They fit my feet like a glove and I can tell that they will feel even better with time. The leather is soft and the top circumference of the boot nice and wide too. Support inside the boot is good. The fit runs a little snug, especially for anyone with a high instep or wider feet, go up half a size at least. Although length is about right. There is a nice low heel, that is very comfortable for Fryes. I will have these for years!

Finally ordered my dream Fryes... but these do not work with dresses. Even my teenagers agree. Will try a different one. I ordered a size up as suggested and they felt fine.

This review is about sizing. I hope my review will help someone not suffer through a painful break-in period so many others have described. Although I must first say that I LOVE the Slate Burnished Antique color! It s gorgeous. It does have a beautifully worn-in look, so you gotta like that look. That said, this is my first pair of high-quality, slip on, cowboy-style, boots, so I ve not had previous experience with boot sizing, which I suspect is the case with some others who ve bought these. I am a true 6.5, although I occasionally buy boots in a 7.0 for thicker socks. These were only available in 6.5 in the slate. When they arrived, I was bummed to find they fit across the top of my foot, but were too loose in the heel. My heel would rise up when I walked, and my foot slid down towards the toe. I decided the fit was clearly too large and ordered the 6.0 for comparison (I haven t worn a 6 since I was a kid 30-some years ago). When the 6 s arrived, I found I had to unbuckle the strap across the top of the foot to get them on. Once inside, the boots felt too snug across the top of the foot, but felt perfect in the heel. My husband said, keep the smaller boots , the leather will stretch and they will break-in . Seemed like sage advice, however, I searched the internet anyway, and read articles on cowboy boot fit which said there should be some slippage in the heel when new. I decided to call the experts, so I contacted Frye. The woman at Frye told me she had the exact same pair of boots and she happened to be the same size. She said she tried the 6, 6.5 and 7, and ended up keeping the 6.5. She said the fit in these type of boots (pull-on) will be different than with other shoes and even zippered boots. The heel needs to be loose, so you can slip the boot on (remember, I had to unbuckle the strap she said you shouldn t have to do that to get into the boot). She said as the boots are worn, your heel will sink down and create a cup in sole, and your heel will settle down into it, so the fit will begin to feel tighter as you wear them. She said because of that, the size 6 may get increasingly tight and feel too small, as the wear-in. Well, during the time that I was on hold before I talked to her (about 20-25 min) I d been pacing around the house with a 6 on one foot, and a 6.5 on the other. Wouldn t you know it, I was getting rubbed raw by the smaller boot. I decided to keep the 6.5, and I ve found she was absolutely correct, the heel tightened up and the boots fit perfectly. I love these boots and actually wish that spring wasn t on the way so I could wear them more. A word of caution, if you choose to pace around your house for an extended length of time. The bottoms of the boots, being leather, are delicate, and also have a bit of a painted finish on them. You'll want to stay on carpeting and lift your feet, so that if you should decide to return them, Zappos doesn't say the bottoms look too worn.

Super cute boots to go with spring dresses + more! At first I had my mind set on Carson boots, as they came in so many colors, but I was won over by these Veronica Shorties once I tried them on. For me (I'm 5'4"), Carson boots stopped at the biggest part of my calves and made me look dumpy, whereas these boots stopped just below that spot, giving me shape & made my legs look thinner. Since I planned to wear these with spring dresses for that sweet + tough look, these would be perfect! Even my husband likes them, which is a rare feat.

Nice boots - I just got these boots today. They are really nice. They seem true to size, but the heel slips. I'm wearing them with heavier socks just to break them in. Hopefully in a few days they will fit like a glove. I love them!!! P.S. If you have wide feet, these may not be the boots for you. Hope this helps.

I just got these boots in the black and love them. I am normally a 8.5-9 (I have the Campus boot in an 8.5) and went with the 9 on this one based on other reviews. It fits perfect. I can wiggle my toe, plenty of room to wear with socks in the winter. I can also wear them in the summer barefoot or with a thin sock and they fit fine. I can't wait to break these in (although they are comfortable from the first time I put them on). They look great with shorts, leggings, skinny jeans and dresses! You can also wear them year round. Perfect to go out in but also to just run errands in. I am 5'5" with medium athletic calves and the top of the boot comes perfectly to my mid calf with plenty of room to spare around the calf (about 1.5 inches room at the top). Very classy with a bit of edge. I wish I could afford to get them in every color! I just love Fryes, they are timeless classics that will never go out of style. Couldn't purchase off Zappos because they didn't have the plain black color, but I love Zappos! Who can beat free shipping and returns?
