These boots are awesome! My only recommendation is to order a half size smaller than you normally order. I have several pairs of Frye boots and all are a 6.5 but in these I had to return my 6.5 and get the 6.0. The 6.0s fit perfectly. Highly recommend these versatile boots!

I recently purchased these boots in the tan color and I am very impressed with the quality and appearance of these boots. I agree with many of the other reviews in that this item does run large. I ordered down a half-size, but I think I could have went down a full size with no problem. They run a bit wide as well, both in the foot and calf, so there's definitely room for a thick pair of socks underneath. Other people have said that these boots are hard to get on & off, but I have not experienced that at all. They slip on & off just as easily as any other shoe. As far as comfort goes, these boots are very heavy and incredibly stiff when new. Right now I give them 3 stars for comfort, but I imagine they will get broken in with ample time and frequent wear. These are definitely made to last a lifetime -- no doubt about it. Bottom line: cute boots, excellent quality, built to last & well worth the money. However, size down and anticipate a lengthy "breaking in" process.

I've owned these boots for three full years at this point and can safely say they are my favorite pair of shoes. I love that the toe isn't rounded like many other boot styles. I wear them year round. Comfortable enough for days of walking. I would probably buy a taller shaft if I were purchasing again, as I love these under boot cut jeans but not with skirts. They're as solid as they day they arrived.

Frye boots are one of the best fit. I own eleven pairs. I wore these out one night and had several people compliment on them. Love the color.

So worth the money and the wait. I have wanted a pair of rugged Frye boots for decades, but just could not bring myself to pay the money.Last month, I decided to treat myself. It was my combination birthday & Christmas gift to myself. First, so many people say to go a half-size down. Perhaps that is good advice for some, but I decided to go with my usual size: 8.5. The fit is just right. There is heel slippage, but a cowboy boot salesman told me that there should be a bit of that. It's not uncomfortable at all, and I hear that eventually the boots will mold to my foot and I won't notice it. I got the Dark Brown Old Town and it is exactly the color I wanted. I love the rough finish. I won't worry so much about scratches in the leather with these, though I did spray the boots with a protector before wearing them. They feel a bit clunky at first. It takes some getting used to, especially for someone who is used to lighter weight fashion boots. But they are getting more comfortable as time goes on. Wore them all day long one day last week, didn't even take them off until bed-time, and usually the first thing I do when I get home is kick off my shoes. I will wear these boots for the rest of my life. I have told my daughter, who is coveting them, not to worry. She is my shoe size. She will inherit these someday, and they will still look great. Don't hesitate if you really want these. They are worth the money.

I love these boots! This is my second pair, I've had the chocolate vintage for two years, and wear them almost daily. This is a new color and I'm really excited to have something that works better with my black outfits. Amazingly comfortable fit, no breaking in required. I go from a 7.5 to an 8 in boots, and the 7.5 work great in these - I always wear big boot socks with them, too. They're super durable and worth the investment. It took almost two years of constant wear, walking around on city streets, for me to need to have my first pair resoled. The best thing about these boots is the heel. It's high enough to give a little lift, and solid enough that you can walk for miles.

I ordered the Campus boot first, because I really don't like the harness. But the Campus was never going to fit my calves. I went up a half size and ordered this Harness, and boy am I glad. The height makes it fit just under my punter's calf. I have a C width foot, and this boot is very snug, but not painfully so. It is slowly stretching out to fit. Because I ordered my true size, rather than a half size down, the heel slips a lot, but not in a way that would create blisters. The best part of this boot is the heel! It has the walking heel that slightly narrows and keeps the boot from looking masculine. I have been told I look stylish while wearing this boot with my winter pea coat.

These boots are awesome, they do run a little big which is odd for me since my feet are wide. But a thick pair of socks solves the problem. They are super well made and worth every penny!

I'm really happy with these boots. I ordered them in charcoal, I was worried that they would be too grey. They are a perfect shade of light black.

These boots are COOL. Very comfortable, outdoorsy yet sexy at the same time, AND Frye boots last FOREVER. I have a different pair that is 29 years old and they're still stylish, comfortable and cool. Can't go wrong with Frye's!

These boots are fabulous! I own them in both brown and black. Frye really makes quality boots that are built to last and these are no exception. I love the moto-inspired look of these boots that gives them a little edginess. They look really cute with skirts and dresses. They do run a little on the long side, so I would suggest ordering them a half size smaller than your normal size so the heels don't slip.

First, I want to thank Zappos for putting up with my neurotic buying and returning of Frye boots over the past couple months. I was determined to find the perfect pair and I did. There are so many beautiful Frye boots but for my first pair I thought it best to go with the classic and I am glad I did. First the Color, I got the Vintage Chocolate which almost look metallic in the online photo but they are not at all in person. They are a beautiful distressed leather and the perfect nuetral color brown w/ black undertones. I also like that the harness is a brushed gold and not shiny. Next the fit, although initially very stiff and almost uncomfortable they have broked in nicely after only a few wears. I sized down 1/2 size (which really is necessary) and my heel still slips but I am told this is common with Fryes. I am going to get some heel pads to hopefully resolve this because it is a little annoying as it pulls my socks down! Also love the rubber bottom for stability. This is what sold me on these versus other Fryes, the bottom! This is an investment and these boots will last FOREVER and with the classic design you can wear them FOREVER! Good Luck in your search. I would recommend these.

Brands I'd also recommend: Ugg, Clarks, Cole Haan

I ordered these boots in a size 6 and they fit perfect! I have been wanting these boots for a long time, I did a lot of research on these boots and I have to say I should have bought them years ago! Very beautiful boot and very well made, these boots are very comfortable! Will be getting another pair in a different color in the very near future!

I've wanted these boots for over 6 months & finally ordered them on a Monday, and received them on a Wednesday. After breaking them in for a good 2 1/2 days I wore them to a concert that Friday and was EXTREMELY happy with how comfortable they were. I normally wear a straight size 9, but went with a 8 1/2 and it was perfect. the only downfall I found with them is after only wearing them out 3x's, the insole is in 2 parts and where the seam is causes rubs the heel the ball of your heel/arch area the wrong way so that it feels like your sock is constantly slipping into the arch or your foot. I contacted Zappos.com and they are sending me out a new pair because I feel that these are defective and i am really hoping that the new pair I receive will not have this problem.

I absolutely love these boots. I had to go down a half size but fortunately Zappos makes that super easy! They feel very stiff and tight when you first put them on but after a week or two of wear they are amazing!

I wear an 8 1/2 in shoes and the 8 1/2s in these fit perfectly. These boots look badass with jeans, but I also wore them with black leggings and a black sweater, and it looked very upscale weekend-ish, so very versatile. Absolute love!

Buying this boot was an investment purchase for me. With that said I have donated all of my other boots with the exception of a nice pair of Cowboy boots:) I did read the reviews and ordered a 1/2 size smaller. NOTE: my calves are not model 'skinny' so I did have to order several pair to get the right fit (not to snug they go mid calf). The shafts did vary in diameter (yes I measured them). The trial and error to get just the right fit was well worth it and made easier by Zappos excellent customer service. I am very pleased with them and have recieved many compliments on the style. Also I recommend buying the Frye oil to treat the leather don't panic they will initially look DARKER but the original color returns *mine are Smoke Old Town.

I love these boots! This was my first pair of Fryes and my favorite to date. The Smoke Old Town color is a perfect neutral brown and the leather feels heavy and durable yet soft to the touch. In shoes I am usually between a 9½ and 10; I ordered a 9½ in these and they fit perfectly, even if my socks are a little bit thicker. I have wider feet so the squared toe makes these very comfortable in comparison to other boots. I also have a high instep, so they take a little tugging to get on at first, but they really do loosen up after only a few wears. Everything about the sole feels well-made, too. The outsole is a thicker rubber with decent traction, and the heel feels solid and give the boot a heavier feel. All in all a great pair of boots that seems worth the money.

I absolutely love these boots. I have had them for two years. I wear them year round with shorts and skirts/dresses in the summer and skinny jeans, regular jeans or whatever in the other seasons. They are super cute and comfortable. I wear a 7 or 7½ in most shoes though occasionally a 6½. I got these in a 7 and they slipped some when I first got them and were snug across the top of my foot. I have average to slightly narrow feet and 13¾" calves. Overtime the boots have gotten much looser and almost sloppy loose but in the winter I still can comfortably wear thick, cozy socks. They have never rubbed blisters or hurt my feet, even after walking miles and miles in them in one day (on multiple occasions). Sometimes I have to force myself to wear other shoes. I think they look better now than when I bought them. After two years of heavy usage, there is only slight wear on the outer back edge of the heels from the way I walk. They are well worth the money! I just purchased another pair of different Frye boots so now I will have two to alternate between.

I love, love, love them! I finally splurged after looking at these Frye boots for years. I have seen girls wear them and always wanted a pair. So, I bought a pair in black and brown, and plan to have them forever, so I don't regret it a bit! The more I wear them the better they get!
