I love this boot! I got it in the black/brown combo. So cute and not super common. At first I thought I might need to order a half size down from my regular 9 (a little slippage in the heal and room to wiggle my toes). But then I read on the Frye
Company website about those things being desirable in a Frye
boot. So I kept my size 9s (my size in every other shoe I own) and I have worn them for an extended period once so far and at this point I think I have the perfect size and boot! They are fitted around my foot (narrow in a good way) so they definitely don't feel too big, and like I said, I have room to wiggle my toes (unlike the suggested fit for some cowboy boots
). They are snug on my calves when I wear straight leg jeans
, but it is definitely doable and they are perfect with leggings and skinny jeans
(I tried them on with all my pants
to be sure they would work with everything)! I love these boots
. That is really what it comes down to.
