Know how you see a celeb photo & think "Those are perfect boots. Wish I could find them (& afford them!)" Voila! This is it. I have this boot in Banana & Black. Both are show-stoppers! Gorgeous! Somehow the web-page photo doesn't capture the stunning beauty of the boot in-person! Leather quality is thick & luxuriously "tanned". Heel is high enough, but is flat - not "pitched" - meaning that although it's a 2" heel, your heel sits flat, not "tilted." So, you avoid the problem of your forefoot & toes getting jammed down into the front of the boot, but you still enjoy the sexy look of a mid-heel. A timeless investment. No need to size down - order your regular size. Will fit a wider foot comfortably too. Completely makes any outfit. So comfy, I've literally dozed off in mine (at the end of the day). I receive a lot of compliments on these boots. I'm a Master's level professional in Northeastern US, where Frye boots, as officewear, are not commonplace. These boots are so versatile, & they just ooze luxury, quality & richness! I'm told that I am regarded as having a "rich" wardrobe, but only because I stick to fabulous, quality basics! If you're on the fence, definitely this is the one Frye boot that is a must-have! I have a half-dozen pair of Frye's & am buying more! Thanks for reading.

I hate my Frye Campus. I wanted to love them. I gave them another chance even after they scraped my legs bloody. Leather is unyielding. When I put them on there are deep indentations because the leather is trying to mold to my foot/leg but can't. These are so painful in every way.

If there ever were a more gorgeous boot, I have not seen it. The smell of the buttery leather, the shape, the smooth soles... footwear artistry. However, I have chunky little calves, and the 14" diameter simply isn't large enough for me to sausage my legs into. There isn't a zipper or a way to adjust the size, so I'm sadly having to return them. Other than that, they are my dream-boot. I'm crushed. Customer care was very kind to me and he let me know that since Frye Boots are so popular, they frequently place orders so I should be able to find another pair that's better suited to my legs.

It never occurred to me that anything could ever top the Engineers -- they're the coolest, roughest, toughest, awesomest little Jack Russell terriers of the boot world. When you want to rock similar style with a slight tweak in attitude, the Campus Boots are your next move. They are literally comfortable out of the box, the leather is rich and supple, and the stacked heels are the perfect height to keep your pants cuffs off the ground and your outfit on the farthest side of casual. If you happen to rely on public trans, you're in for a serious treat because no Arctic blast can penetrate these boots. Expensive, yes. Worth it, Yes. These are not the boots for those shorter in the lower leg or wider in the calf. And super tight jeans will hug the tops of the shafts if you choose not to tuck. I'm a 7.5 [9.5"] by most brand standards, but always a 7 in Frye.

Order your regular size! I am a size 9W, nothing fits, have a closet full of pricey shoes & boots that hurt my feet. I am not a western/boot style girl and I am unfamiliar with how they are supposed to fit. So I read countless reviews before purchasing. Most suggested that all Frye's run big & that I should order down from my regular size. Frye company says that you are supposed to have toe wiggle room & a little bit of heel slippage. My regular size 9 fit too perfectly.

What a pleasure! I am a typical size 8; but have lately needed a wide shoe. As a result I usually order an 8 1/2 in a shoe if I cannot get a "wide" in an 8. When I ordered the Frye boot, I took a chance and ordered a regular 8. Knowing that Zappos always honored returns, I figured no harm, no foul. When the boots arrived, I was very pleased to find out that the 8M was a perfect fit. The quality in these boots are fantastic; they will certainly last a lifetime. The leather is pliable and the boots are already conforming to my feet. If you have any hesitations about size, I would suggest you go with your normal shoe size. You can always exchange them with Zappo's excellent policy.

Brands I'd also recommend: Every shoe I have purchased with Zappos is a winner.

Couldn't be happier - These boots are spectacular. They slipped right on my feet and broke right in. Not only are they comfortable but really beautiful in design and construction. I'm sure they will last a long time. Also, they go with just about everything in my closet, to boot! I currently vassilate between a size 7 and 8 but the 7/12 was perfect.

I love these boots. They are such amazing quality. Very beautiful and pretty comfortable. I have wide toes and they get a little squished by the boots. Also, there is a scratchy seam in the leather at the top of the boot, but a friend told me that a little bit of moleskin applied over those spots will help.

These boots were very popular in the 1970s, when I was in high school. I'm happy to say they're still made with the same style and quality as they were back then! I ordered my usual size, and the fit was perfect for me. There was even a little extra room to fit my orthotics. I like to wear a medium-weight knee sock with boots, and they felt nice and comfy with my favorite socks. This is a well-made boot that should last the wearer a lifetime. Perfect with jeans or a below-the-knee skirt. You can't go wrong with Frye boots!

I love these boots. I did have to go a half size down though. Started with my regular size but the boots stretched after a couple of wears. The color is beautiful and they are quite comfortable.

I was so excited to receive my Frye Campus 14L boots yesterday (in banana), as I too have been coveting these babies for a few years before making the purchase a couple days ago. Unlike a lot of reviewers, I ordered my usual shoe size (an 8M) because my feet are a little on the wide side. When I first put the boots on, I thought they were a little too loose in the heal area and decided to exchange for a 1/2 size smaller. But after trying them on again with socks and realizing that everywhere else beside the heel felt quite snug and the heel slippage was much less with socks on, I decided to keep the size 8's and am proudly wearing them right now as I type this. I simply love these boots. I have muscular calves but have no problem with tightness in that area. These are my 2nd pair of Frye boots and consider these an investment for my feet.

I ordered these while looking for a casual, leather boot. After reading previous reviews, I ordered a 7, though I normally wear a 7.5. They came and fit perfectly. I returned them only because the Veronica Slouch was more what I was looking for, with its buckles and style. The 14L is a simple, low heel boot. Beautiful leather, very comfortable. Loved the hidden inner straps to pull the boot on.

I am kind of obsessed with this boot. I ordered the saddle color and it is a perfect neutral brown, with a hint of reddish warmness(!). Amazing for straight leg or skinny jeans and casual dresses. It's not too cowboy and has its own fabulous look. I have had issues with the sizing of other Fryes - my normal shoe size is 7.5. I have the Engineer 8r in a 7, and Carson shorties in 6.5. With the Campus, the 7 is a perfect, roomy fit. I could fit a thicker sock if I needed too. I would say this one runs 1/2 to a full size too large. People who have tried on Fryes will know what to do with this info - for others it's simply trial and error! Campus 14L were worth every penny and I'm thrilled to have them!

These boots are absolutely beautiful. I ordered my true size which is an 8. They fit well, but I do have to wear socks if I wear tights. This is fine since I live in a cold climate...keeps my feet extra warm! I have gotten lots of compliments on them. The color is really nice and neutral. Worth the splurge! I'll wear them for years and years to come.

I just received these boots in Banana Leather and I am in love! The color is so unique and I can't wait to where them into the Spring. I have two other pairs of Frye boots (Harness and Lace-ups) so I knew to order a 7.5 (I am typically an 8 in boots). Very stiff when you first get them, but I know from past experience that they will loosen up nicely. I also want to comment on the excellent service I received from Zappos. Not only was my shipping free, but since this was my first order I was upgraded to VIP and was eligible for 1-Day shipping. I ordered my boots at 8 p.m. last night and they were on my doorstep by 2 p.m. today! That is service that can not be beat! I will now only use Zappos for my online shoe purchases.

I love the boots! I read the other reviews and bought a full size down. At first, they were hard to put on and felt a bit tight but after wearing them for a couple of days now, the leather is starting to loosen up. I probably should have just bought a pair 1/2 size larger, then a full size. definitely worth the money because you can tell that these boots are made to last. I'm already thinking about getting another pair!

Zappos service cannot be beat. I always try them first. My daughter wanted these boots for a Hanukkah gift. She is so happy with them. From the minute they arrived, they have been on her feet! She has received so many compliments on them. I would say they are well worth the price.

This is my second pair of Frye Campus boots; I have another pair in brown that I have been wearing for 7 years that still looks and feels great. I needed a new pair of black boots for the fall/winter, so I decided to go for another pair of Fryes; they last forever. They are a very comfortable, durable, high quality pull on boot, and they look super cute over jeans, under jeans, or with a skirt or dress. I love them and cannot say enough good things about them.

I wear an 8.5 so I had first ordered an 8 based on some of the reviews saying to order half a size down. I ended up having to send them back and order a full size down because they were too loose in the heel! The 7.5 fit just fine...I can tell they are going to take a while to break in but that's part of the fun of a new pair of boots right? They are beautiful and go with everything, skinny or regular jeans and look too cool with dresses or skirts.
