I have a love/hate relationship with these boots. I mean, they'e so cute and the quality is as good as it gets - but there's a big problem. I can't wear these boots, even for a quick walk down the block, without limping home with huge blisters on the back of my heels. I've used layers of moleskin, bandaids and those sticky, padded heel inserts but I still have this problem, so my pair spends most of its time in the closet.

Frye's Harness boots are great - These boots are stylish and functional - and comfortable. Since I am past the point of wearing shoes that look good and hurt my feet, these past the ultimate test for me. I did have to buy a full size larger than normal, but that was indicated on the website so the pair I purchased fit perfectly.

Great Boot - I ordered the tan, love the color. Wonderful price, I did some shopping around and this was one of the best deals. Plus the fact that Zappos takes such great care of their customers! I got standard free shipping and was up graded to 2nd day,Thanks! Fit is perfect,just like a boot should fit. A little loose in the heel,I can feel the harness rings on my ankle bones though, that should break in with time. Can't wait for cool weather to wear them! Thanks Zappos, Love this site.

A note about sizing - Many people say these run large, but that wasn't my experience. My feet are relatively narrow in the heel and wide through the toes, so if this sounds like you, I recommend trying a half-size up. I tried these boots in my usual size 8, but the toes were too narrow - painfully so. I walked around in them a little, and my toes almost went numb. I went up to the 8.5, and they are a little loose in the heel, but the toes are comfy and the arch hits in the right place. If they loosen up with some wear, I can put insoles in and they should fit perfectly. Overall I absolutely adore these boots. They look great with jeans or skirts, for work or play. Frye quality is legendary. They aren't cheap, but they will never go out of style.

These boots weren't made for walking... A well-made boot, but far too narrow in the forefoot... My foot isn't particularly wide and these boots were unwearable until I stretched them out a bit. Even after breaking in, the heel slips too much. Also, the leather is matte and not slightly shiny as shown in the picture.

Fry harness - Good price, nicely built, but some of the leather seems less than high quality and a little overly distressed.

Beautiful Boots - I followed the online reviews and purchased a 9.5 when I generally wear a 10. However, the showes were a little narrow so I am exchanging them for the size 10. If you have a wide foot, I would recommend ordering the boot in your normal shoe size. Narrower feet may want to go with the half size smaller as advised.

Looks great but fits very snug - I love this boot, but I wouldn't order a half size down. I am a 7 1/2 and ordered a 7. They are very tight and tough to get on. Hopefully once I break them in they will fit better I would have prefered the 7.5, but they are sold out now. Otherwise the shoe is great. They were shipped in 2 days and I love them.

These boots are fabulous! I was hoping to put them on and comfort wise, feel like I had owned them for years. However, I believe some "break-in" time will be required. As far as looks, it doesn't get much better. They will go great with anything, jeans or skirts. Because I live in Las Vegas the heat is not permitting an opportunity to wear boots right now, I take them out of the box just to look at them and wear them around the house. I have purchased several items from Zappos and have always had a positive experience. I've had to return a few due to sizing but, I am not returning these. I normally wear an 8 and it was not available in this color. Because several of the reviews stated that they ran a little large I grabbed the 7 1/2. I walked all over my house and although they were a bit difficult to get on I feel comfortable that with some wear, I will be happy with the 7 1/2. Thanks again Zappos!

Tan Frye Harness - Ordered boots Wed night, had them Fri morning! I wear a 7 1/2 and after reading reviews, I went with a 7. They fit perfect. There is a little room in the heel but that is normal for any slip on boot. Wore them all day, they are comfortable!

Love Them! I NOW know why everyone praises Frye Boots. Their quality and fit puts all others to shame. I not only wear them riding, but also dress them up with skirts! They look sooo good and are incredibly comfortable! Be sure to order a half size smaller than usual. Also they were a little hard to pull on the first couple of wearings, but I blame that on my high arches and the fact that I don't wear socks with them! Minimal heel slippage, but never any discomfort or sign of a blister...even wearing them barefoot! Great Boots...Highly Recommended!

Have to marry this boot - First of all, zappos is the best!! my husband ordered me these boots at around 10 pm EST and they were on our front porch by noon the NEXT morning! I've wanted these boots for a long time, and I knew they would take a long time to get to the comfy, broken-in point where I want them. So, yes, they're a little uncomfortable now. But, like a great pair of Levi's 501s, the time you put in will eventually be worth it. They do fit (like many boots) a little larger--I usually wear a 10 and had my hubby order a 9.5 based on the other reviews, and I'm having zappos send a 9 to see what the difference is (the 9.5 does slip a little in the heel). Definitely try a smaller size than usual to start with. Thanks Zappos! I've never had better customer service. And what awesome prices!!!

Pleased Cowgirl - I truly love these boots. I have wanted these particular boots for over 6 months now I have them. I am ecstatic! They look good, they fit well, they go w/everything. They were true to size, however and I had to return the first pair because I ordered a size smaller than I usually wear. Other than that they are my chosen favorites!

Love these Boots - I just received my boots today. Super Fast Shipping. I just LOVE them. They were a little hard to get my foot into, but once in, they feel so good. They are made with great quality. Next month I am ordering myself another pair of Frye Boots...

Great Boots!! These boots were comfortible from day one. There was no break in period at all. The size was on the large size but not enough to get a size smaller. Great quality leather and the look is sharp.

These boots are kick'in ! These are my favorite boots. They go with anything shorts, skirt, jeans anything. I took advice from another review and got a half-size smaller than I normally wear. This was great advice. They were slightly uncomfortable the first wearing and every time after they're becoming softer. The instructions for care say to use mink oil occasionally (will darken it; doesn't say how often)to condition leather and add weather proofing to leather and seams. Love them !

cool boot - This was the 2nd pair of Frye Harness boots that I bought. The first pair (size 6.5), I bought about 4 years ago & love them. They are still my all-time favorite boot. I thought these would fit the same being the same size/style. Wrong. As cool looking as these are, they didn't fit me very well. They were too big & the shaft felt extremely large compared to my first pair. I returned them & ordered the Harley-Davidson harness boot which is a little stiffer but a more accurate fit. For quality, you just can't beat the Frye. I hope my Harley's don't disappoint.

a true western boot! I have been searching for a cowboy boot that would be comfortable and versatile. I love this boot - it fits great and is super comfortable - no break-in period! I love the color - a great brown to replace always wearing black shoes.

Boots worth waiting for! I love my Frye's! I've wanted a pair for a while, but none of the retailers in my area carried them. Zappos was fast, and a dreamy online shopping experience!! While I do find that Frye's run half a size large, I knew this from previous shoppers. So I bought the 8 (my feet are 8.5) and they fit absolutely wonderfully! I love the color, the fit, the heal, the texture ...I could go on!

Sexy AND Comfortable - I absolutely LOVE these boots! I'm on my feet all day long and they're one of the few shoes I own that I don't want to rip off at the end of the day. Plus, I get tons of compliments on them. That being said, there are a few minor complaints I have with the fit. First of all, they tend to be a tad narrow in the forefoot to the toes. If you have a wider foot, I recommend ordering a size up. Also, even though they have great arch support, if you have high arches they're a little hard to get on at first. Once they are broken in, it's much better. Highly recommended!
