Okay, I waited a long time for these black boots
to come in my size 8. I own Billy short boots
in another color as well as over a dozen pairs of Frye boots
. These boots
are the most difficult boot to get on; it took help from a shoe hook and a lot of time. Then to get them off...needless, to say another person. Why did I keep them, you ask? Because once they are on, they feel fine and look great as expected. My only hope is that they will stretch with time. I didn't return them as I had already worn them as well. Maybe I got a weird pair, but be forewarned, get the boot, get the look, it's fantastic, but allow a solid 5 minutes extra for dressing if your boot is like mine! Sign me...a crazy fan for Frye boots
. By the way: the reason I like these instead of Carson shorties (which I own in black and blue) is that the Billy short stands up and is slightly more pointy, so it goes with different looks like skirts
. The Carson is very soft and is just a different style of boot and leather...more dressy, I guess
. Billy is rugged and slightly edgy!
