Great Boot - As always, Zappos has the quickest free shipping ever. Boots are great, thought they might be a litle big as my heel slides a little, but my toes almost touch the front of the boot. Basically this is just the fit. Great all weather boot and recommend!

Excellent Boot! These were a gift for my wife's 30th birthday. She had wanted a pair of Frye boots for about two years and actually screamed when she opened this gift. She loves these boots and takes every chance she gets to wear them. Just be sure to order the boots about a half size smaller than what you normally wear, as most boots are sized differently than shoes.

Greatest boots ever - I had a pair of these boots 20 years ago and have been looking for another pair ever since. Finally I found them, they are everything I anticipated great fit, smart looks and comfortable. I wore out the first pair I had and will these too. Hope they will always be available. Thankyou Frye I love your boots!!

Great customer service! This is a great boot. But more importantly, Zappos is an awesome site. Their customer service is wonderful and prompt. I ordered my boots on a Thursday and got them the next day for no additional charge. The boots were actually a little big, so I had to return them, but even the return/exchange process was absolutely painless. They make it really easy and hassle-free! I will definitely keep shopping with Zappos.com and tell my friends.

The 4-Star Boot - I bought this boot in "bananna" years ago, it is still extraordinarily comfy(after broken in).It fit well, but even better when worn and contoured to my high instep and arch. My old boots just show wear,mainly due to the light color. I am currently attempting to locate them in the same color - but they're not in stock in my size 6 1/2B. That's how well I liked the boot.

Great Boots! Buy a 1/2 size smaller... These boots are so comfy - they felt so worn in the first time I put them on. They are truly comfortable. And SO cute too. Great with jeans tucked in or rolled up, great with skirts for that boho look. Just great all around. Really recommend these boots.

Power boots - I've had these in black for years. Just recently I ordered them in banana. They are THE perfect boot with jeans. They aren't yellow, they are a neutral. Absolutely. If you are familiar with boots, any brand,quality boots are sized a half size larger than regular shoes. I wear a 9.5 and a size 9 in these fit perfectly. These are power boots. Rough, tough and extremely cool. I adore mine and wear them everyday.

My girlfriend loves them - I bought these for my girlfriend as a Christmas gift. We bought them from Zappos because of the excellent customer service and they were less expensive. I recommend Zappos for all shoe buying needs.

These boots are IT. Worth the expense! I spent months deciding on purchasing these boots b/c of the cost, but I'm thrilled with my decision. It may take some time to break them in but these beauties will last for years and they look even cooler with wear. More importantly, they're incredibly comfortable and durable.

I LOVE THESE BOOTS!! I originally purchased these in Black in my regular size 9 1/2. They were slightly large, but I put some Birkenstock insoles (ah!!) in them and they were fine. I then purchased the Banana (my true loves!) in a size 9. They fit me perfectly. My feet are so used to Birkenstocks, that they're taking me a little longer than usual to break in, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE these boots!!! I wish I could afford a pair in every color!

Frye's Campus 14L W - The boot looks great and is true to size. It's not a dress boot so it should be no surprise than it's on the heavy side. Zappo's shipping policy is incredible. I placed my order around 10:00 a.m. one morning and the boots were delivered the next day late in the afternoon.

Campus boots in banana - Love these banana-colored boots, which will go with anything! The detail and amount of stitching required to make a pair of Fryes is amazing -- you certainly get what you pay for. Don't be afraid of the price of the boots, though, because these shoes will be with you for years (or so I've heard) -- unlike the expensive sandals that I bought this summer, which may not see another season because they were so poorly made. And girls with larger calves, don't fret! I found them to be a little snug in the shaft, so I took them to my shoe cobbler and had them let the leather out a bit. They had no problem doing it. Be sure to order a 1/2 size down, though, because these babies do run large.

LOVE THESE BOOTS! These are the cutest boots! I bought them in Banana and I absolutely love them. They are perfect with jeans! They do run large...I would order a half size smaller than you usually wear. Very fashionable and very comfortable -- hard combination to find!

I bought these boots in Saddle and instantly fell in love with them the moment I opened the box. The color looks even better in person, they are incredibly well-made and very comfortable in the foot bed. My problem with them is the boot shaft. I am not a large person, but I could barely manage to shove my calves in them! I called the Frye company to ask if this could have been just a fluke or if it's just the style of this particular boot. They suggested I have them stretched out a bit by a cobbler, so that's what I'm going to do. They're just too beautiful to send back!

I ordered these because the reviews said the calves were narrow, and I have skinny legs. The reviews were spot-on, these do not flare or gape at the top at all, but there is still room for jeans. I did not keep them because there is a lot of bunching at the ankle. They fit a bit like rain boots, with no real shape to them. I think I need boots with zippers.

This is my 6th pair of Frye boots; unfortunately, the least comfortable. They are very stiff (granted, they need breaking in) and run narrow for me. Also, the grain is different for each boot so one looks a bit darker. Still, I love this boot! My calves are not big and this boot fits them perfectly. I will be wearing these with dresses and jeans, tucked in or out.

I measure between a size 6 and a size 6.5. After two pregnancies, my foot has spread a bit, and now I more often wear a 6.5 or even a 7 sometimes. I tried these shoes in a size 7 first. They swamped me. So I then went for the six. I thought they would be OK because leather stretches, but they are tight in the toe-box for me. The leather is very thick and hard. Breaking these in will take a while. I may take them to a cobbler to stretch them for me. These are very beautiful boots. The craftsmanship is perfect. I continue to wear them at least 3 times a week despite the pinching because they are so gorgeous. Also, I have plantar fascitis (fallen arches) and these shoes hold my feet together and despite a sore little toe, the bottoms of my feet feel very good at the end of the day and the next morning, unlike the days when I wear "comfortable" shoes, like tennis shoes or fitflops. I think the arch support is excellent even without an insert.

I ordered the Banana leather, and they are really beautiful. They run large - I ordered a half size smaller than I usually wear. No arch support means they are uncomfortable to wear when you’re on your feet all day, but I think an insole would help. The leather is stiff and so I think they will take awhile to break in, but I love them anyway.

Love my boots! They are comfy and go with everything. The only thing I suggest is if you have a high instep or a wider foot go up half a size, the boot runs small.

I didn’t trust the reviewers who said order a size down - and I should have! I always wear an 8-8.5 and on my second order finally ended up in a 7.5 in these boots. The fit initially was odd - very loose in the heel area and super tight in the toes. Thick socks, thin socks, tights, I tried it all to make these babies work and still ended up having to take them to the boot man to have the toe area stretched (cost $8). Again I always run true to size and if anything, ends up going UP in size, but with these boots I went DOWN. I have a narrow foot and have never encountered shoes that are too small in the toe area. Still breaking them in with duct tape on the heels on days I know I’ll be walking a lot, but my goodness do they look nice! I don’t usually suffer for fashion, but I know once these beauties are broken in I’ll have them forever! Love Zappos for their wonderful customer service!

First, I must say that Zappos was extremely fast in shipping these boots as I received them in 2 days. As for the boots, I don't agree that they run a 1/2 size large. I usually wear a size 8 for a shoe that I do not wear socks with (sandals, heels) and a size 8 1/2 for shoes that require socks (tennis shoes, boots). I first tried a size 8 because of the previous reviews and they were so tight on my toes that I had to return them for a size 8 1/2 which fit perfectly on my foot. The problem was the ankle of the boot rubbed when I walked and made my ankle sore even when I was wearing socks. I could not justify spending this much on a pair of boots that might not break in and stop rubbing my ankle. So although these are really cute casual boots, I will be returning them.

I've wanted a pair of these for 10 years. I finally splurged and bought them. I am a size 7 and got a 7. The 6 1/2 I couldn't even slip my heel into. So despite the reviews saying they run large, I found that they are true to a perfect size 7. My main complaint is the calf width. I am a 5'4" skinny woman with what I thought was slim calves. Much to my horror (did I suddenly get fat calves?) and surprise the calves are very tight. I will only be able to wear thin socks or tights with these. Anything else will not fit. I will keep them because I love the look. I just hope that they will stretch a bit. The leather is very, very stiff so they will need a lot of breaking in. Here's hoping they will last a lifetime and break in beautifully! Plus, they are made in the USA! I will always support products made in USA!

Cool, classic boots - OK, I love these boots. I would have given 5 stars across the board, but the calf is a bit snug and I'd like them to be about an inch taller. These were comfortable from the first wear for me. I have an average width foot. I've worn them almost daily for two weeks now, and I only noticed yesterday a little pinching in the right small toe, but today, no problem. I think it has to do with the sock I wore. I am sort of short (5'3 3/4") and a runner, so my calves just fit in the 15" calf area. Actually really perfect on the left leg, but a bit snug on my right. This part of the boot cannot be stretched by the little old Italian shoe-repair-guy (so he said.) He also said that it will give a little with wear, but not a lot because it is leather with leather lining (double layer). None-the-less, I wear them. I love them. Mostly with skirts/tights and jeans. They are classic and appear to be super durable. Oh, yeh, I ordered a 6.5 and that is perfect. I usually wear a 7, like in the Frye Harness boots which I also love.

Great quality but not for me - I got a Sunrise color, which out of the box looks very orange, like cheese puffs. Maybe banana would have been better. Very well-constructed, all-leather sole and all, so I can see it lasting forever. But I have a slightly wide foot and the toe box pinches my small toe. I think it'll be too painful to break this in. It wasn't love at 1st sight, so I don't want to deal with any pain. I am petite, size 5.5, and this seemed to be a bit much, with the orange color & thick clunky style. Wouldn't recommend for wide feet. If you are petite, maybe the other colors would be better.
