The ultimate kick-a motorcycle boot! You instantly gain 2 degrees of toughness in these! They're remarkably comfortable. They run slightly bigger (just slightly) so you can wear half size smaller with thin socks. Width is nice, not too narrow. They pull on easily and look good in or out of jeans. The leather is super thick and great quality. I've had mine 3 years and still love them! You don't go wrong with Frye.

Oh, how I love these boots! I initially bought a size 9 (I'm usually a solid size 9) but it was way too big so ordered a size 8.5. The 8.5 that came felt like they were two different sizes so I sent them back for another size 8.5 - perfect! They were comfortable right away.

So glad I finally bought these boots! And I'm also grateful for the reviews I read on Zappos. Most of the reviewers noted that the boots run large, so I ordered a half size smaller than the 9 I usually wear and they are perfect. I wore them almost every day for the first week and they have broken in nicely. The tan color is exactly as pictured. I also bought the Frye leather conditioning spray, which actually improved the nice, worn in look. I plan to buy a pair in black soon. Lastly, Zappos' service is excellent - the boots arrived 2 days after I ordered them!

I also had been admiring these for a while and finally decided to get them. It was my first pair of Fryes so I wasn't sure what size to order. I am normally an 8.5-9, but I decided to listen other reviewers and get an 8. When I got them it was almost impossible to get my foot in (I have a high arch). I was worried they would be too small because I couldn't get my heel down. Finally I got it and once on it actually was a little roomy. But I love the boots and I think after some wear they will become easier to get on.

I have waited along time to finally own a pair of Frye boots. They are everything I imagined and more. Beautiful to look at, a great fit. I have wide feet and yet I broke them in painlessly in one day. I am in love!

Love Frye boots. Have bought three pair in the last 6 months - two pairs of 12R harness, and one pair of Heath outside zip 12Rs. They are great for me, because I have large calves and have trouble finding boots that fit and look great. The Harness run about a half size too large. The Heath outside zip is true to size. I bought the harness in black and tan. The leather softness varies depending on color. The black is much softer than the tan. Frye boots are amazingly comfortable. I can walk or stand all day in both styles. I thought the lower heel on the Heath would translate to more comfort, but the heel on the harness - although higher - is just as comfortable. They are so comfortable that I am planning to wear these on my Europe trip!

These boots were a splurge for me, and worth every cent! I love the color and look of the leather, and I can wear them all day comfortably. I was sick of wearing black boots with everything...these are a great addition to my wardrobe.

Wow! My first my pairs of Fryes were the "Tan" ones. Boy, did they hurt! I had to get them stretched twice, and they still are stiff. Seven years present, I braved and got the "black" ones I had coveted over years. They are a softer leather, and not breaking my feet as I wear them. I still love the "Tan" colored ones, but the leather is different. I praise the "black", and suggest going down half a size.

Size 7.5 has a circumference of 15.5. I almost didn't order these boots but I'm glad I did! I love these. I typically wear a 7.5 and these boots feel a little big but I don't think a 7 would fit. The leather does give so getting them on and off becomes easier.

They run about a half size large, so consider ordering a half size smaller than you usually wear.

I have had mine for 14 years and they have worn like iron and are super comfortable. They have worked their way down in my closet to work boots and are still going strong. I still get lots of compliments on them - from contractors no less! Frye is top quality, mine were quite a bit less fourteen years ago.

I love these boots. They look great and are comfortable. I wear them all the time. I did have to order a half size smaller than usual. Even a half size smaller, I can still wear wool socks with them.

Love Zappos! Ordered my boots 11pm on Monday and was shocked to have them in hand by 3pm Tuesday! The best customer service in the world! Now, about the boots. Okay, I read many reviews, half size larger, smaller, etc. and It was hard to decide, since I usually wear an 8.5 or 9, depending on boot. I went with 8.5 and they fit great. Little slip in heel, but I understand this is characteristic of Fryes in general. For the heck of it I went by Nordstrom to see if 8 was a better fit and couldn't even get my arch into the boot! Not even remotely possible (FYI, I have a long narrow foot). Given all the reviews about "larger than marked" I was quite surprised by this. I expected to at least get the 8 on and have it be tight. My observation is this boot is "roomy" by design. (the 8.5 had plenty of room in toe box for my long narrow toes). Love this boot! Great comfort right out of the box...classic look and will get years of wear! Yay! Zappos rocks! Thank you!

This is a fabulous boot! Bought them for my trip to TX in December and ended up in a torrential downpour of rain while wearing them. They stretched out a bit but other than that, no harm done! Beautiful color, too! After reading other reviewers' recommendations to buy smaller, I did just that. Bought a half size smaller and probably could've gone down a full size. But, the size I went with is very comfortable. Love this boot!

Beautiful boots. My wife has wanted a pair of these for over a year. I have worn this style boot for over ten years off and on. They are very classic and yet modern. Get them if you are on the fence!!

I usually wear a 7, but with these a 6 1/2 fit better. They are surprisingly comfortable the minute you put them on. I've always wanted a pair, and they are well worth the money. I love them!

I love these boots! I ordered these for myself for Christmas. I wear a size eight but I ordered a 7 1/2. A few of the reviews recommended ordering a half size smaller than your normal shoe size. I am so glad I did because the boots fit great. It is a perfect fit with a pair of warm socks. Everyone I know loves my boots. Great purchase!

Loved these Frye in Old Town Grey! Great color and love the distressed look. These ran a little larger in size on the left foot. Was quickly sent another pair as only Zappos can! Am thankful to Zappos quick service. Amazing next day on my porch! I had two boxes of boots the same size in front of me and only the right foot fit on one pair. The 2nd pair, both were a half size large so I'm sure Frye mis-marked the size. Love Frye boots, though a little tricky getting the size just right. Thinking I may need a 7 in this color. I would definitely order this boot again. It's awesome. Zappos service can't be beat, they kept my orders coming right on time through the busiest holiday season! That's outstanding service.

I usually don't write reviews but I decided to for the Frye Harness Boot and because of Zappos. Their customer service is absolutely amazing. I am a true size 10 but the 10 and 9 were both too big, so I've exchanged them for the 9. You can't go wrong with this boot. Looks great with skinny jeans, and they are timeless! This is my second pair of Fryes and I will be purchasing more.

I love these boots. These boots are insanely cute with skinny jeans. This boot requires no breaking in at all! I ordered a half-size down, and my heel still slips a bit, even when wearing thick winter wool socks.

I adore these boots. I've been pining after them for years and finally got up the nerve to buy them for myself. Important, a good portion of the reviews on this site tell you these run half a size big, so I bought both a 9 and an 8.5 to test this theory, even though I am almost always a 9. I contemplated for days over which size fit me better. The 8.5 didn't fit anything more than just tights, but the 9 felt a little big. Note that my heel slipped in both but doesn't as much now that the boots are a bit more worn in. In the end, I went with the 9. I wear thicker socks or add a very slim insert if I wear tights. I have worn them everyday but one since, I wear them to work with a skirt and tights, on the weekend with jeans (both over and under). I got the crazy horse color--a perfect choice for someone who wears a lot of shades of brown. You won't regret this purchase, they are comfortable, sexy and kickin' boots. If you are worried about sizing, go ahead and buy two sizes and walk around your house for a couple days in both, wearing whatever you would most wear under your boots. It gives you the best perspective on what fits best.
