I have owned these boots for ten years. I have worn them in the Colorado River and in the snow in Michigan. I have been in thick clay and climbed the mountains in them. have worn with shorts; skirts; and tights. Worn them in all seasons. Sexy as all hell. People come up to me in airports and ask about these boots. I got them in less than 24 hours from Zappos. I have never worn them with socks. I love these boots. I am 58 years old. I will treasure these all my life.

These look awesome and are definitely well made... but the fit was horrible... my five year old had to pull on them to help me get them off! Way too narrow. These didn't run big for me at all; they ran small, unfortunately. They will be going back. :(

Love these boots. I am normally a size and ordered 7.5 after reading the other reviews. Plan to get them in black too. I love Zappos!

I have been looking at these for years and finally took the plunge on this timeless style. I absolutely love them - they fit great and the leather smells divine. Would suggest them.

For starters, Zappos has outdone themselves. I ordered these boots early afternoon one day and received them in less than 24 hours! Regarding the boots, I can't even begin to describe how beautiful they are! I ordered the Charcoal Old Town and I love the dark gray/black leather; these babies will go with everything. I've been eyeing these boots for a while now and finally decided to get them, and I'm so glad I did! I'm normally a 7.5 and ordered the 7, since I have narrow feet and they fit great. I can't wait for them to break-in a little more; they'll fit perfectly, then!

Love this boot! Super comfortable! This heel gives a little height and keeps my arches and heels from hurting (flat boots do me in). The leather is soft, not hard and tough, and the craftsmanship is great. I don't know how these would do as an actual moto boot. The Left toe would wear down from shifting perhaps, but is a great boot to work in/walk in/stand in. I'm a six but got a seven because I have really wide feet. I just double up on socks and I'm fine.

My favorite boots ever! I've been eye balling these for about a year after seeing someone with them so when I finally had the funds I bought them. I got them in my usual size and they fit perfect I also own the Carmen harness tall in the same size and I wish I would have gotten a half size bigger in those. When income tax season rolls around again I'm definitely getting another pair maybe black. Oh, and the tan color I got was gorgeous!

The boots are expensive junk. The leather looks like plastic. The fit was terrible. They fell apart in a short time. And the Frye Co. gave me a really bad time about their warranty. Frye once made good boots. Not any more.

I LOVE these boots. I've been trying to find a pair of engineer boots that aren't too clunky or masculine and these fit the bill. I normally wear an 11 but I bought a 10 and they fit great. I have thin calves and these work well without gaping too much.

Very nice boots. They are a little loose at the heel. I got 1/2 size smaller than I normally wear because they run a little larger. Heavy leather and a good and sturdy boot. Worth the money. Recommend this boot.

I jumped at the chance when I saw Frye boots in size 12 on Zappos. And, excitingly the fit was good. The leather is thick and supple (I got it in black). However, I returned because of the weird seeming and insole. That seam that runs along the shaft of the boot- that made me nuts! It rubbed and was uncomfortable. Also, the insole (at least in the boot I got), looked kind of like when you take the insole out of a shoe and underneath is weird and bumpy. There was no cush or padding, and there was a little cup for your heel, which did not lay flush with the next portion of the sole. Last, I'm about 6' and these boots hit my calves in a weird and unflattering place.

These boots are the best! The Frye harness has such a distinctive look. Worth every penny; I will wear these forever. I have a wide foot and when I first put them on I was concerned they would not work as I could feel the sides on my instep. I decided to keep them and wear them and they feel great now; took only a day for the boot to mold to my foot. I got the charcoal color which looks amazing!

Awesome boots! I actually had to send the 1st pair back because the left boot was too tight. Then the 2nd pair the color was a little funky! Finally, the 3rd pair was perfect! The returns went very smooth. Zappos was very happy to help me return them! Sometimes it takes 3! Very happy with my boots.

Great boots. They are adorable and stylish. A bit heavy but not enough to make me return them. Definitely go a half size down.

I bought the 12R in Smoke Old Town. They are gorgeous. I wonder if the leather will soften as the front is a bit hard. I know they will be a wardrobe staple. I am 5'3" and 107lbs. These are not too clunky or too wide. Just right for my stature.

I have several colors in this style. I also have several brands of cowboy boots and Hunter style rain boots with a 16 in shaft. I live in boots. If anyone finds boots difficult to take off, just in case, purchase a boot jack. You don't even have to sit down to take off your boots with one of these. They are simple, relatively cheap, store anywhere and helps to whip boots off easily. Especially the styles with no zippers or gores. You can buy or order them from Western gear stores and catalogs. I'm always surprised at how many people don't have these.

Super comfortable - look great with jeans or skirts. Love Frye brand, love these boots! I got them in Charcoal Old Town, and they are a cross between black and grey...more dark grey but "ombre" almost. Love them! Love Zappos!

Beautiful boot. But super heavy and will take a lot of time to break in. The leather is super thick, which is great if you want to wear them for the next 10 years. No doubt they will last a lifetime. I'm sending back because I don't want to invest that much time before they are comfortable. And the heels were slightly different from one another making for an unbalanced gait from heal to toe.

Love these boots. They fit my large calves and wide feet. I wear a 6.5 in the Harness and size 7 in the cowboy boots. I have the Tan and may have to order another color, Whisky. Apparently, I am obsessed with Frye, such great quality. Get these boots, you will not be disappointed.

This is my 3rd pair of Frye Harness 12R. In the last 3 months. I just got my black pair. They are so pretty. I am so please with Frye and Zappos. My first order was not an very good experience, but I didn't give up on Frye or Zappos. I had to order 4 pair before I kept the 4th pair. I didn't down size my 4th pair. I am an 8 1/2 shoe size and ordered an 8 1/2 the "Smoke Old Town" they ran big. So I gave them to my daughter, she is a 9 1/2 shoe size, they fit perfect, she loves them. So I ordered a next pair the"Chocolate Vintage Leather" in a size 8, fit almost perfect. The arch is cut a bit tight, so you have to work your foot into it, but once in the fit is good. So again I am very please with my boots. I suggest to order a 1/2 smaller and the fit will be good. Thank you again to Zappos employees - you are the best.

I got these boots in the chocolate vintage leather and they are absolutely gorgeous! I ordered an 8 originally but they felt loose so I exchanged them for a 7 1/2. The 7 1/2 was perfect on the left foot and somewhat snug on my right, however I can already feel the boots loosening up with each wear. I can tell the fit will be perfect after they are broken all the way in. I admit when I ordered them I was in disbelief that I spent so much on one pair of shoes. But believe me, once you get them you will see they are worth every penny! They smell as good as a brand new car when you take them out the box. I put them on immediately and didn't want to take them off. I am now officially a Frye girl!

I read many reviews before purchasing these boots. The recommendation to buy one half size down was extremely helpful. I LOVE these boots! They're comfortable, classy, and good with everything. I bought the Dark Brown Polished Stonewash. Not too worn out looking, and very stylish - even for this ol' gal. I've been coveting a pair of Frye's for almost a year, and finally took the plunge. So glad I did!

The best and most comfortable boots I've ever put on right out of the box! I've been eyeing these gorgeous boots for quite a while and finally made the plunge! Boy, am I glad I did :) They are beautifully made and feel/look like they will last a LIFETIME! They do run large, like most people have said, so I sized a half-size down and they fit perfectly. They are slightly narrow and the boot shaft isn't very wide, but that is just the style of the boot. Overall, AMAZING! Love these boots!
