Fit across toe area is tight/careful choosing colors - I got the Frye Campus 14L boots about 2 mos. ago. I ordered the saddle color. I did not like the color as it was too orange for my taste. It is hard to judge the colors on the website. But since Zappos has THE best return policy- it's not a big deal. I sent it back (for free!) & reordered the same boots in dark brown. I received them the next day & I really like this color better. It is much more versatile. I think they are great, classic, casual boots that I will keep for years. Love the look. They do not have great arch support and are very narrow across the toe area. Hopefully they will stretch. I have a narrow small foot (size 6 to 6.5) and they are very tight in the width. I ordered a 6 and the length is fine. If you have a wide foot- I would not suggest this boot for you. Zappos is the best online company. Great service- fast & free- no hassles. Can you ask for more than that?

Great Boots - I just received my Frye Campus 14L boots. They are really comfortable little disappointed about the color. I ordered them in Saddle and expected them to be a little darker then they were. I ordered them in an 8.5 and I'm usually a 9 and they fit well. A little big in the heel part but overall, they fit great.

Not for me - The boot was made well, but was too chunky for me. It felt clunky and heavy. I have the harness 14l and love it, but this is not feminine on my big feet and thick calves.

Almost perfect... These are beautiful boots that I have coveted for at least two years... they are taking a while to break in, however. The advice to buy a half-size down was good, but the toe box is fairly narrow. My foot is already a bit narrow and I'm still getting a bit squeezed in the right foot. I think it will loosen up, as the left foot feels perfect as is. The boots are fantastic looking - gorgeous leather - and the stacked heel is a sight to behold. I know these boots will be my faves for many years to come!

I love these boots, they are just so stylish and go with everything. They are pretty comfortable but it took 3 attempts to find a pair that matched in both size and colouring, maybe because they are handmade. Only complaints are one of them seems to let water in and the demin from jeans seems to wear off on them, making them a bit grubby. I intend to buy another pair for sure. Finally I must comment on Zappos Customer service - it's by far the best I have experienced, the Americans could really teach us Brits a few things !!!

These are great boot, at great quality. You can get a lot of looks out of it. The only thing to be aware of is that the shaft is pretty tight. It is hard to fit over jeans and wooly socks. Also, the soles are pretty slick, so be careful not to slip in rainy weather.

Yes, I know they're classic, but they are extremely stiff, heavy, clunky and uncomfortable. I just sold my pair because they were just sitting in the back of my closet for 3 years, too unpleasant to wear. Tonight I ordered a couple other Frye styles from Zappos to try on in hopes of finding a replacement. Frye's a good brand; I just wouldn't recommend the Campus boot.

I've had these boots for 3 years and have barely worn them because they are not very comfortable, I can't really fit skinny jeans inside them, and they look awkward under boot cut jeans. I'm 5'1", and have large calf muscles, which may be the problem! If your legs are a little longer and thinner, they will probably work out better for you. They do look very cute with the right dress. I would recommend trying them on quite a bit before you decide to commit to them; they are expensive.

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.

Very disappointed with this boot. It didn't have a zipper so if you try to wear your pants in, it's very difficult. Also, the boot gathered by the ankles.

Not for me - I really like the look of this shoe but even after a couple months they never got comfortable. Also the tall shaft irratates my leg. I guess this style just isn't for me.

I bought these because I wanted a "Classic Frye" 1970s style boot that you always hear people saying will always be in style. I own three other Frye boots (Melissa button saddle, Harness 12R brown and Carmen tall grey). The saddle color is not quite right, it is very light, especially with the light wood heels. I saw these on another girl with jeans tucked in and wanted that look but I think she had brown. My husband said the color and shape reminded him of a farm worker's boots! This is not exactly the look I was going for, especially at this price tag. If I had not already worn them outside, I would do a return. Also, this shape looks totally dorky under jeans, like construction boots. The Harness 12R style is way better but again I was seeking that '70s college 'Campus' look. Wish I got the darker brown. Money down the drain. Perhaps a cobbler can stain them brown?

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!

Loved the boot, downsized, but should have kept my regular size. I have small calves, so they were snug even for me. Would have to wear leggings only with these. Quality was A+.

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.

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.
