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.

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.

The best! I wear a true 7 usually, but have a 6.5 in my other Fryes. I ordered the 6.5 and 7 in this boot, and kept the 7. Comfortable enough on the inside to not even wear socks. Obsessed. Although, the bottom of the boot is not as brown as it is in the photo, more black.

Great quality well made boot. Nice leather. Took a little while to break them in; at first they felt very heavy and a little clunky. Definitely need to wear a thicker sock with these. I only wish the arch support was better (flat feet and plantar fasciitis).

I've brought these on vacation as my only shoes & had no problem walking all day in them. I love how structured they feel without being really heavy or bulky. I've worn them with jeans, tights, and dresses and it all works. I wish they were waterproof, but oh well. I can add a sealant to them. Your heel will slip out when you walk -- this does not mean it's too small. It's just how slip on boots are built. I'd definitely buy these again.

I have to disagree with all the comments and recommendations about sizing on this boot. This is important because these boots are expensive. By following the comments, I cost myself a lot of money for a pair of boots I can't wear. I wear a 7. Always a 7. I've bought 84,000 pairs of shoes, boots, sandals in my life and for the most part, if I got a 7.5 they ended up to be big on either first wear or shortly after. So I ordered a 7 in these boots. I could not even get my foot into them. I did actually squish my foot in with a bare foot once but that hurt a lot and for a few panicky moments I thought I would not get them off (there is no zipper). So, I sent them back and got a 7.5. While I could get my foot into the 7.5, I could tell they were tight in the heel (and a bit in the width but no biggie). The huge problem here is that cup for the heel. It digs into the back of my foot, to the point of causing bloody blisters. I went with the comments and kept them thinking somehow a miracle would happen and they would "break in" to the point where they would "cup to my foot". Nope. I have a pair of expensive boots I cannot wear. Love to sit there and look at them because they are very cute (dark charcoal antiqued color), but every single time I try to wear them, bloody mess. It takes several days for that kind of damage to heal before I can walk right again. So not recommended. Then the color was discontinued from Zappos, so recently I bought the black waxy ones...in an 8. Never in my life have I ever had to wear an 8. But, they fit. Sure they are a little loose but with the way the boot is styled, they still hug my feet. I feel like they make my feet look a little big - because I do not wear an 8. But they are very comfortable. They are not stretching out. They fit. End of story. I can actually walk around the mall all day in these. Total comfort. Great quality boot, so 5 stars. Great support, lovely leather, nice traction, I'm still waiting for the shaft to slouch but I can tell that will happen after they break in. I might heat them up with a blow dryer and use a chip clip to hold them in the slouch position overnight and see if that helps. The "soft" colors have more of a slouch from the start. I recommend you go with your bigger half size that you trend toward, then add another half size up. Or like me, if you never trend to a bigger half size, order a whole size bigger, along with your half size bigger. Order both, return the ones that dig into your heel. Zappos has great returns.

Love these boots but had to send back and order a half size larger. Also felt they were narrow in width but the half size larger feel great on my feet! Get lots of compliments on these boots!
