Almost nearly awesome - Upon many positive reviews here and by recommendation of a friend... pretty much exactly what I was looking for… something to go from work to the woods in, but they're a little narrower in the toe box than I would have liked. By the end of the day, my poor feet hurt and they're not very cushy inside and the soles are slippery on the tile floors at work.

Great ol' boot. These were a gift for my 30th birthday - a boot I've always wanted. They did run a hair bigger than true-to-size. I normally order a size 7 in boots, but a 6.5 was more than fine for these. Should be fine with thick socks. They are, however, a bit bulky under jeans. You can "see" them under there unless they are wide leg pants. I have thin legs/calves, and these were not tight around the calf, for those thin women wanting a tight to calf boot. Fantastic looking boot though. A bit strange feeling in the heel area at first - kinda "bunchy" - but these really did wear in on the first day. Also a bit narrow in the toe area. Yeah, I'd suggest them, not for wide feet.

Skinny calves - My calves aren't THAT big, but I do have trouble with some zip up leather boots. Anyway, I had to get these boots stretched at a local place, but after that they are PERFECT!

Nice boot, lacks support - I really love the look of this boot, but I'm an over-pronator so they were pretty uncomfortable. A nice pair of Dr Scholl’s arch supports have solved that problem.

Almost perfect - I had ordered a brown boot, careful not to get the banana color. But I guess what I got is brown over banana? It's not quite what I expected, but I like it well enough not to return them. I also ordered a size 7 but received a 7.5. It worked fine.

Love my Frye boots but... These boots were made for someone who has slender calves, not that I have abnormally sized calves, but these were a little tight. I spent a few days stretching them out before I could wear them. Also, they did pinch my toes for quite a while. On the other hand they are really good looking shoes and they go with everything!

Campus Banana - I love these boots. I've had them for years and they are comfortable and stylish. I tend to wear mine with jeans (both under and over). However, the sizing can be tricky. I went with my true size because when I sized down my toes were squished. But with my true size, the heel is sort of loose. I generally just wear these boots with thicker socks and they are okay. My heel still slides a little but I find that better than having squished toes.

This was my last resort in finding the "perfect" black boot. Alas it was also a failure. I wanted a completely black boot; however, you can see tan inside lining at the top/opening of the boot when you have it on. I also expect them to be a lot comfortable? They are expensive; I expect the best boot ever...but I was a tad let down. I also received one that had a crease on the front...I'm assuming that was a random happening. If I had decided to keep them I would've exchanged them for a new pair.

I cannot stand boots that "bag" at the ankle and make me look like I've got the lead in "Pirates of Penzance" and, unfortunately, these boots do just that. Other than that, they were easy to get on, well-made, and true to size. Total bummer, because I was excited to find these on sale, but these are headed back to Zappos.

Beautiful color (saddle) but the shaft height hit me at the widest part of my calf and looked very unflattering. I never knew I had big calves - still not sure that I do - but where these hit on my legs just looked terrible -- which is sad because I want these boots! The look classic and expensive. However, I'm going to have to find a different style of Frye with a taller shaft.

These just did not work for me. They are beautiful boots but the foot felt wide and the sole was so stiff that walking around the house I sounded like a horse! I also ordered the Harness Strap which fit my feet much better in width, and which were a lot more flexible in the foot. I also found that the Campus looked very baggy around the ankle, which can work for some people but they were just swimming on me.

Difficult to break in. What was I thinking? While this was the boot of my long ago youth, recapturing that youth has been far too difficult in breaking these Fryes in. I have a high instep, so the width across the ball of my feet has been challenging here.

Gorgeous boots but sadly they'll be going back. I have never had an issue with boots being too tight on my calves, but I could hardly get these on bare legs and would never have been able to fit them over tights or skinnies. True to size everywhere else but very narrow around the calf area. Love my other Frye boots but have to part with these.

I really wanted to love these boots, but couldn't. The heel and color and toe were great, but the shaft was super baggy around the ankle. They ended up looking awful.

I have been scoping out these boots for years. I finally decided this is the year that I buy my first pair of Frye boots! So I purchased the Frye Campus 14L in Blazer Brown Leather. I received my boots and was really impressed with the quality of the leather and construction of the boots. I put the boots on; while they were a bit tight in the calf area, the boots fit well. They were very comfortable...until I starting walking in them. I barely went from my door to the car and noticed the side seem in the boot rubbed my ankle. I thought that I would just break them in, but by the time I had made it to my office a giant blister had formed on my ankle where the seem was rubbing. I'm so disappointed, but I had to return my boots. I will definitely be buying another pair of Frye boots from Zappos, just a different style.

These were not what I expected. The foot part runs small and the shaft of the boot is wider than I hoped. I really want something more snug to the leg. I ordered the Banana Leather and they are definitely very yellow! I guess I just need to keep looking for a pair of boots I'll like!

Beautiful boots, but I should have listened to the other reviewers who noted that the sizing runs big. I am usually a 9 1/2 so that's what I ordered, but I definitely need the 9. Will be returning these for either a smaller size or different style.

I read the reviews and ordered a 7 1\/2, as I usually wear either a 7 1\/2 or 8. I managed to get the boots on exactly once. After that, I could put the left one on but couldn\'t again figure out how to jam my foot into the right one. It\'s not that the boots are too small, because once they were on, they fit great. I guess my arches are high? Anyway, I was really looking forward to these boots and I\'m sad that I have to return them.

I ordered these boots two times. I returned my first pair because they were a whole size too big (I ordered a half size smaller in the first place because of other reviews, but they were still too sloppy on my feet). I also returned my first pair because the leather color was completely different on the two boots (dark brown on one and yellowish on the other). I mentioned this when I returned them. The second pair I received fit perfectly; however, the coloring was significantly off again. I\'m returning them as well and I\'m going to get my boots from somewhere else. Zappos had great customer service and I think they would be great to order from for tennis shoes or shoes that aren\\\'t made of leather. Quality for these shoes appeared below par, unfortunately.

Boots - I received my boots, I normally wear an 8, I ordered a 7 and a half, a bit tight in the toe... Loose in the heel like I have read. Tight in the calf, and I am a little person. I am not waiting to break anything in for months or years for what I paid for these. Sorry. I ordered the saddle, and the color is very nice though. I do have to say that much. No boot is worth that much pain. So, I fill find something else that will fit me better, and look better on me for three hundred bucks, that are just as good quality I am sure. Thank you~

These boots were not made for walking... I love the look of these boots, but they are less than comfortable. The heel is loose/slips and the toe box is just tight enough to drive me nuts (to be fair, I have a slightly wide foot but I ordered true to size when the general consensus seems to be going down a 1/2 size). My hope is that they will continue to break in over time, but after a few weeks' wear I'm still subjecting my feet to pain for the sake of fashion.

Long break-in period - I'm finding that these shoes need a significant amount of break-in. The first time I wore them I got a huge blister on the back of my ankle. I was looking for a sturdy boot to get me through winter, and as a result the leather is stiffer than I'm used to. I am confident that once broken in they will be great...

Boots - I thought they would be a bit more comfortable being an expensive and well known brand. Maybe I just need to break them in or get a leather softener.
