I’ve been wanting these boots for a couple years now. Asked for and got em for Christmas! I love these boots. Listen to all the reviews. Boots run large! I usually end up with 11 to fit my size 10.5 foot. Was very comfortable in the 9.5.

My wife is delighted - I did well. I bought a pair of these for my wife as a Christmas present. She had told me that she had a pair of Frye boots in the early seventies and that she had loved them. Picking up on this, I thought that their purchase would be a good gift. The boots were her best gift despite other, better gifts; you know, the old "pay attention to what she's saying" thing. Anyway, she wears a size 7 1/2 boot, I ordered seven and a halfs and they fit like a glove. They are as well made and as substantial as she remembered them from that time long ago. The leather isn't distressed, exactly, but it's also not perfect which, in this case, is a good thing. The boots are well made using quality materials commensurate with their price (they aren't inexpensive). My wife likes the boots but she's ecstatic that I listened and heard!

Great Boot - This boot is very stylish and appealing to your "inner cowgirl." I have a slightly high arch, so as noted in earlier reviews, it is a bit challenging to pull on. I did get my normal size to account for my arch and that seems to be working well. While the boot is slightly larger, it also allows me to wear a thicker sock. These are not lined, so in my climate this was important. Also, I def recommend waterproofing...while it darkens the color, I believe it will make the boot last. This is a timeless classic style.

I love Zappos... I broke down and bought myself a pair of the Harness 12R in Crazy Horse. My boots went to my former address and I was frantic; I called Zappos and my replacement pair was waiting for me when I got home the next day. I love these boots; they have molded to my feet and I had them on the other day for twenty-two hours and my feet felt wonderful. Get a shoe horn because they are snug in the heel. I get compliments every time I wear them. Zappos is the best..I hope I win a lottery so I can buy all the shoes I want from them forever. I will probably get these in black as well. Order a half size smaller than your regular size...your feet will love you for it.

They are NOT as heavy as I thought! However, do buy them 1/2 size smaller than your size! A friend of mine bought them one size smaller instead and she ended up with lots of pain & bleeding blistered for weeks - just like the other reviewer below! I have muscular calves & wide feet so I was a little worried that they would give me a problem but I was wrong! Yes, they do look heavy but they're urban cowboy boots, of course they are not as light as tennis shoes! I have them (in dark brown) for 3 weeks now and so far they've been great. I think it's about finding the correct size. If you buy them too big, you can fix the problem easily by wearing thick sox but if you buy them too small, they will create huge dilemma for your feet! I just bought the Belted Harness 12R in black a few days ago as my Frye second pair boots. They're lighter than these one, so if you can't handle these classic harness you might want to try the Belted Harness style. Thank you to Zappos for your wonderful service. You ROCK!

Awesome boot!! This boot looks so cool - not a cowboy boot, not a dressy boot but just a cool, unique boot. Only criticism is that it's a bit hard to get on and off because the construction is so good that the leather doesn't "give" much. This boot stands UP in the closet, doesn't fall around like others, which means it's not very flexible. A zipper would rectify that but ruin the look. Still, after getting them on, they felt broken in from day one. Unfortunately, I broke my right ankle after only wearing them 4 times and now there's no way I can get my right foot in the boot. So I gave the boot of my dreams to my sister in law who was quite pleased. I couldn't stand to see them in my closet every day and know I couldn't wear them. I may try the mules. This is my favorite boot ever.

Thank you for getting my boots to me before the snow! I recently moved from Georgia to Colorado and needed to quickly add some boots to my closet of flip-flops and sandals. My new Frye boots arrived the day before the first snow. They were hard to put on at first and after a day of wearing them my feet were throbbing, but I knew boots would have a break-in period. Fortunately these boots felt great by day two. I love them and my feet stay nice and dry in the snow. They are fashionable and durable.

After a long search... I bought these purely for 'fashion', not for use...I have tried on 2 pair, one a full size smaller and one my size. I went with my size. They are tough to get on (to start) and they feel snug, so I only wore them around the house to make sure I liked them. I don't have a really wide foot but these stretched so easily and quickly width wasn't an issue. It really only took one wearing and I was hooked! I tried the mules in this style and I am so glad I paid the extra cash and got boots instead. They go with everything and because they are Frye you know they are good quality. I recommend them...mine fit like a glove now.

Awesome looking boot! This is a gorgeous boot. My feet are hard to fit and I'm sending these back for 1/2 size smaller. Usually wear an 8 1/2 or 9; ordered an 8 1/2. Width is good (for my bunions) but the length is not. They were deliciously comfy even though they were big.

Love em'!! Actually bought these boots in store in the fashion show mall in Vegas. The brown ones. Was walking past and they caught my eye and I could not leave the mall without buying them. I usually wear an 8, but all they had was a 7.5 and they fit perfect. Wore them out to the Jet NightClub and danced the night away til' 4am. Wicked with long slim jeans. Not too fond of the black, but the brown looks better the more scuffed they get. First pair of Fryes ever, but it won't be the last. These boots are very well made for a reasonable price. Great for when you're feeling a little bit country!!

My Big feet Love'm - I received them as a gift from my mother, she bought a size 11, forgot that I wear a size 12 women's, but no biggie they fit perfectly (think the toe box may be a bit larger than most brands). I'm very happy with the fit and comfort, plus the antique gold color is a good mix of warm medium brown and stubble gold metallic leather. They’re a bit dressier than plain leather boots. Plus the shaft height is perfect for those ladies like me that have athletic legs (muscular calves), top hits just about middle of my shin. I can't get over how beautifully made there boots are. Such quality that no other boots I have can compare to them.

Love my Fryes! I love these boots! They make me feel instantly sexy and powerful, like I can do anything. What more can you ask for? I will be wearing these for years to come. I ordered a 9 because, though I think I'm normally a 9, nines have been a little short lately. These fit just fine. Very comfortable out of the box, and I can walk at least a mile or 2 with no discomfort.

Hip, sexy and classy - These are the first pair of Fryes I have owned- tried the veronica slouch, campus and harness 8R and am finally very happy with the black harness 12Rs. they instantly update my whole fall/winter wardrobe and have a sexy and rugged appeal that is also classic! Just what I was looking for to bring out my inner warrior-ess. However I did take one full size smaller than my normal size- Fryes run huge!

Love these boots! These boots are great, very comfortable. I'd buy Frye shoes again and would recommend them. I bought a half size smaller than usual, and they felt a bit tight at first. However within about two days, they stretched enough to mold to my feet.

The best boot ever - The breaking in part is the only remotely bad thing I can say about these boots and that isn't a huge deal either. I run a pretty standard 9 and ordered a nine. Best choice.

These boots are awesome - I bought these boots in brown. They were a bit tight to fit on at first, but they quickly molded to my feet and they feel perfect. They are hard competition for my other shoes as I wear them nearly everyday. I absolutely love them! I'm a 7.5 but take a 7 in Frye's except for the daisy boots which run smaller than most Frye's.

These boots rock - These are the best stylish boots I've ever owned. I ordered my normal size 7 1/2, they were the perfect length but around the foot area they were a little it tight. I could still wiggle my toes but it just did not seem right. So I went down to a store that sold these shoes and tried on the size 8. They were way to big. After wearing the 7 1/2 for a day they stretched out and now are the perfect fit. Great quality, I've got a lot of compliments on them already.

Comfort found! I cannot say more about how amazing these boots look and feel. I have a horrible time finding shoes that I can walk in, that don't make me look like I'm an old lady. Not only are these boots comfortable but they look great with many outfits. I highly recommend this boot to anyone who does a lot of walking but doesn't want to wear sneakers every day!

zappos is the best! These are great boots and felt broken in after walking around the house in them for about 30 minutes. They are hard to get on the first time, but don't let that scare you. When I received them, I noticed one of the boots had a small defect on it. I called Zappos - they must find the nicest people on earth to work there - she immediately sent me another pair, along with a gift certificate for my trouble, before I could even send the other pair back. I will order all of my shoes from Zappos from now on! I usually wear either a 6.5 or 7, but ordered a 6.5 and they fit perfectly.

Excellent Boot!!! For my first pair of Fryes, these boots look just as great as expected. The style brings good comfort without the use of any additional arch supports, etc, although I'd suggest ordering in your usual size if you plan to add any comfort items (Especially if you tend to add arch supports, etc. to keep boots from slipping on your heel) They do run a bit big. Overall excellent boots that look and feel great, crafted to do so for a long time. Bravo, Frye and Zappos! I'm glad I ordered them!

Very happy with these FRYE Boots - Already do I own a pair of "Prairy Flower" Frye Cowboy Boots. They are beautiful. Just bought the Frye harness in GOLD. I went with my regular size 9 and glad I did! Yes they are gold but the shaft area seems like a lighter gold over a brown. They are snug to pull on and get that heel into but the leather will stretch over time. I need to wriggle my heel into the boots at first but they are comfy when on. Even the calve area is nice and loose and my calves are bigger rather than thin. I expect the width of the boot to be tighter than normal until broken in and I don’t mind. I would recommend to anyone buying boots to invest about $10 for a boot jack for easier removal of the boots. These boots ROCK!
