The ULTIMATE must-have boot if you live in inclement weather, where it's impossible to look good during snow/sleet/freezing rain, complicated by road salt, mud, grease/grime/etc. This boot conquers, all the while looking FABULOUS! Web page photo doesn't capture it's edgy, classic looks. Looks RICH in person. And is THE most comfy footwear I've ever owned--right out of the box. I LIVE in mine, wearing 16-18 hours daily, with NO foot fatigue at the end of the day. Heel looks substantial/mid-high, but maintains the foot in a flat stance, rather than "pitched". My feet, legs, & back are supported w/ a natural, comfy stance all day long, and the all-leather construction allows my feet to breathe--Hallelujah! No more sweaty, swelling, stinky feet. Most other reviewers advise these run big. Not me. My regular size (10) fit my wide feet perfect. (Frye
are supposed to allow ample toe wiggle room, & slip in the heel.) Slides
on/off my feet effortlessly. Leather is thick & substantial, with a durable finish, water & dirt glide right off - I haven't even so much as wiped mine down with a damp cloth yet, but will do so EASILY if needed. Lug sole gets my feet up and away from direct contact with water & snow & keeps feet dry. This is an instant classic for so many good reasons! Worth every penny & more.
