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.

I think I am in the minority here - these boots fit more snugly than I expected. My normal shoe size is an 8½, but I returned these for a 9, which fits much better. I have short legs, so these approach my knees. But if you are taller, keep in mind these likely will not be knee-high on you. Overall, though, great boots, and the quality seems high.

Love the cool, rustic look of these boots. They are warm and fit well- I'm an 11- 11 & 1/2 and the 11s are just right. They are comfortable on; only complaint is they are on the heavy side and my feet/legs can be sore after wearing all day or doing a lot of walking. I'm used to Birkenstocks so plan to get a Birkenstocks arch support/insole which may help. I have them in saddle and they go with everything. Craftsmanship is impeccable, I know i'll have them forever. Money well spent.

I was so excited to open the Zappos box today with my new Frye Campus 14L boots! Unfortunately, I was very disappointed that I wasn't able to slide them over my calf! I got the Saddle Brown in an 8½ and they are gorgeous! I never considered my calfs to be unusually large and never had a problem getting tall boots before until now. I thought about having them stretched because I hate to send them back but I cannot take the chance that it will not work and be stuck with expensive boots that I cannot wear.

I have wanted these for a long time, and finally purchased. I bought them in the banana color, and they are so pretty that I wish they used a more elegant name for the color choice. The blond tone is beautifully marbled with some darker lines. They are a great heel height for all day wear, even at work, and I am out of my chair from one end of my office to the other daily. I love the height of the shaft and the square toe. They are thick leather and fully lined in leather. I think they, and particularly in the blond color, will pair well with almost anything. I am absolutely keeping them.

Initially I ordered the Campus Stitching Horse. As much as I really loved the fit and look of the boot, I really needed a boot that was more versatile, and not quite so country/western. Besides the colors offered here at the moment were not what I had in mind. Banana is too light and walnut too dark. So I tried these in Saddle. I do love the heel height in these boots. I also love the shaft circumference. I like that they are plain without stitching. They fit nice and close to my calves like the Campus boots did, (my calves measure about 13½") with room to spare for skinny jeans underneath, yet would be still fit closely enough to bare legs for a skirt or dress. My issue with these boots is that me heels slipped quite a bit in the 7½ size (which is my size) as well as my feet in general felt like they were flopping inside the boot. Where as the shaft fit perfect, except for the ankle area, where it seemed as though it was too roomy, and bent/collapsed with each step unattractively. I ended up choosing the Phillip Harness Tall boot in the 7½ size. Now that boot fit beautifully and very comfortably! I can now say I have a pair of Fryes, even though it took me several pairs to figure out which was going to work best for me. Thank you, Zappos! Your shipping and return policy, is great. Otherwise just guessing would not work, as all boots, styles, fit differently.

I hadn't had a pair of Frye boots in years mainly because if I'm going to invest in a pair of good boots I want to be able to wear them to work and many of the Frye styles are just a bit too casual for a professional office. However, once I saw the Campus boot I knew right away that it work work. The boot fits true to size and with the slightly higher heel, it looks great with skirts. These boots are a bit more expensive than some but I can tell they'll last a long time. You won't be sorry once you have them in your closet!

Ordered these a couple years ago, am not one who spends this much money on shoes. But loved the look and know they're great quality. Sadly after returning 3 times, I gave up. Zappos was awesome about returns, but these boots are sized very weirdly. Normally wear an 8 1/2, returned these 3 times, was down to a size 6 or maybe 6 1/2, still huge! Oh well,unless you know your size in Frye, I'd suggest trying on in store first. To bad, awesome shoes.

I am 5'1" and always have a hard time finding boots that will fit. These boots hit at the right spot! Usually boots make me look even shorter but these boots have the right shaft size for petite woman. I would definitely recommend these boots for women on the smaller side. The quality of the boot is outstanding. They are a little tight around my calf. However, I am able to wear my skinny jeans with them and I think they will also loosen up a bit. The dark brown color is beautiful.

This is my first pair of Frye boots. I have always admired the craftsmanship. I tried on 9 different styles. They really do fit very differently. After wearing them 1 day they were broken in! Such beautiful leather! Note: not all of the boots have the finished inside leather and not all are made in the USA for the price I wanted both. It will state it on the box. The leather soles are just so well made .....can't say enough great things! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the banana yellow!

Love the Frye quality! These boots boots are a classic! Invest in some leather conditioner as they are stiff (& narrow) at first. As with any fine leather, the more you wear, the better they will get to know you.

I have wanted these boots for years and finally got them. They were snug across the front part of my foot, scrunching my toes, so I brought them to a shoe repair place and had them stretched a little for a small cost. I love them. They fit well now and look great. The calf part fits me well. I'm 5'9" and average weight. I bought my usual size 10.

This awesome boot is the quality I expected from the Frye name, the leather is superb, with an interesting coloring on the surface to give it a worn, fashionable appearance. I was pleased to find that these boots were made in the US, versus China - which I noticed on several other boots made by Frye. I love this shoe, it makes a great addition to my wardrobe. It matches with so many things.

I am deeply and profoundly in love with my Frye Campus 14Ls, and I owe it all to Zappos, who worked with me until I got it right. Order a 1/2-size smaller than your normal size! Also, be warned. This is not a tuck-your-pants-in boot for me. Fine with me, because that's not how I roll.

Defective pair! The inner leather lining of the right boot was oversized and bunched up around the ankle and heel. Totally unwearable. Otherwise the boot seemed fine...a little tight on my calf, but would have been wearable if not defective.

These boots are classy and understated. The blazer color is a rich reddish brown, which is perfect for the fall/winter. The heel height is nice. Five stars for style and quality. I gave four stars for comfort as somehow the pair that I received had a raised portion near the heel where two pieces of leather joined, and it is a bit uncomfortable after walking/standing a long time in them. This may not be a common issue.

I am an avid review reader but this is the first one I have ever written! I have 10 pairs of Frye boots but these are by far my favorites, and also the only ones that I have paid full retail price for. The banana color is beyond gorgeous, and I get compliments on them every time I wear them. I am a size 10 in all other Frye boots, but take a 9.5 in these. I also wanted to compliment Zappos customer service - due to some sizing and leather inconsistencies I ordered MANY pair and sent them back before ending up with my perfect pair. Also, Marco was an incredible help with Customer Service as well. Thank you!

My Campus 14L are 10 years old. This is my second pair. My old pair still looks like new despite all the forestry work I put them through. The cushion supports must be something new Frye added, because my old pair didn't have them yet they were still comfortable. The Campus 14L are roomy in the toes. You can order a half size down if you want, but I don't recommend it. Why? Because I tried it and had to exchange for my normal size. My hiking, thermal and athletic socks wouldn't fit comfortably in there. And I could barely tuck in my skinny jeans, because the shaft circumference narrowed about 1/2 inch. If you have curvy calves like me or like to tuck in pants, order your usual size. If you have slender calves and want a tighter look with skirts, size down.

These boots are gorgeous there's no getting around that. I got them in banana and the color is pretty much what you see here. I think it's quite close actually. But it's a rich yellow and they are attention getters for sure. The problem I had is that they are very roomy, too roomy for my thin legs and feet. I bought my actual size which is a 6 1/2 and they are very large. I'm returning them and getting a 6 and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that that will be small enough. My legs are slim and the boot shaft is fine - roomy with plenty of space for jeans, but would also look great with a short skirt. I'm bumming about the size is my main problem. Other than that I love these boots.

Great boots - even after 4 years of wear and tear. I own the saddle leather and they look just as good today as they did in the beginning. Super comfy, too! If there is anything I no longer love about the boot, it might be the crinkly looking lines that are present (possibly due to the "tanning" process?) - either way, still one of my go-to pairs of Fryes!

I have these in stone washed whiskey and in black. These are the best boots or shoes I have ever owned and I wore them every day from fall '13 to end spring 2014. I can't wait to put them on again. I have a standing desk for back issues and work on computer all day every day and I do this wearing these boots, even better than sneakers. The break in period is about a day. I will get more I am shopping for them now and it is still August in NY. Thanks Zappos for the many boots I tried until I found these! Best ever.

These look cute on the website, but once on make my leg look like an elephant's leg. These kind of pucker and are a heavy boot. Maybe that is because these are pull on boots. I have a different pair of boots that are zip ups and those are a lot better fit. Sending these Campus 14L back.

The Campus 14L boots are wonderful! The fit is perfect, a half size smaller than my regular size was great for me. The color is better in person and especially on my foot. Ordering and receiving the boots was very very smooth with no problems as usual. I will always order from Zappos; they are great to deal with.
