Overall, great boot but as with most handmade shoes, the fit varies significantly from pair to pair. Compared to other Fryes, the heel cup is very loose (will pull up when walking). I ordered 1/2 size smaller than normal but still may need some type of insert to help with fit. The leather is beautiful and I regularly get compliments. The sole is great for extra traction compared to other riding boots.

I have had a difficult time trying to determine the correct size. I first ordered a size 7, those felt on the small side. Returned for a size 7.5 and they felt too sloppy (and long) on my feet. So now I'm going back to a size 7 again. I would like to extend a huge "thank you" to Zappos for their awesome customer service and patience with me while I get my sizes straight. I feel bad having to keep sending them back for different sizes, but for the price I want them to be right. So if you're on the fence about sizes... Ladies, the fit in my opinion should feel like a firm hand shake around ball of foot area and you should be able to wiggle your toes. The boots should slip some in the heels and that is completely normal with any cowboy type boot. Zappos, I apologize again for having to had keep returning back and forth. I know once I receive the size 7's back they will be perfect. Thanks again!

Excellent quality leather work. I also have the Campus boot, which is also of similar quality. The Harness boot is a little more masculine than I was looking for, but I tried another Frye boot and was not impressed by the quality leather, or the fit. Those went back; the Harness is a keeper.

After owning a pair of these boots for six years, I feel compelled to write and tell you how much I love them. I have worn these daily for much of the past six years, and they are still going strong. Do not balk at the price - you will get your money's worth here. Great with jeans, great with skirts, and when I'm trying to mix it up a little, I even wear them to work. Best shoes ever.

Love, love, love these boots! Very comfortable (minimal blisters during first wear) and hit just at the right spot on your calves so as not to give your legs the illusion of cankles! My only regret is that I didn't get a smaller size. :( I ordered the 7's, because I am a true 7, but then after a few times of wearing them, realized I was a 6.5, possibly even a 6! This has deterred me from wearing them a bit, however for the amount of money spent, I figured I should get my payment's worth! I advise anyone to most definitely size down at least a half size from your normal size. They definitely run big and have a wider heel then most boots I've worn. Beautiful look and feel, a vintage staple in any woman's closet!

I am generally a 7 and got these boots in a 7, they were a tiny bit loose, but perfect with thick socks, and totally doable with thin socks. I had them for about a month, wearing them on a regular basis, but not everyday. Then, I noticed that a chunk of the wooden part of the heel had broken off. I called Zappos and they immediately set up an exchange with the free shipping they are known for. I decided to get the regular harness because I was a bit worried about the wood breaking in the future. but love the customer service and these boots are truly beautiful.

These boots are so comfortable. I ordered my true size, and they fit perfectly. The shaft is a little wide, but a great height for me. I am 5'4" and sometimes the higher shafts hit at the wrong spot making my legs look short. Overall, these are great everyday comfortable boots. I highly recommend them!

Love these boots -- really cool. Leather is a little stiff, but soft. Need to go 1/2 size down from normal size. Really looks cute with leggings & girly dresses -- gives it that hard/soft look. Boot is heavier than other Fryes, but is easy to get use to the more you wear them. I have athletic calves & these fit with tights & skinny jeans. I took them to cobbler to stretch just so they they were a little looser. Can't go wrong with Zappos & these Fryes are made in the USA, which is a bonus! Once you buy Frye boots, you won't want to buy anything else.

I have had these boots for 3 years. I felt it necessary to write a review because many people say this boot runs large. That hasn't been my experience at all. I am an 8.5 but ordered an 8 based on reviews. The leather is heavy, good quality leather and the toe box doesn't stretch much, even after 3 years of regular wear. I have to wear a very thin sock with mine. Definitely wish I had an 8.5. They are gorgeous though and I get tons of compliments!

This shoe does run at least half a size small, but the toebox is a bit narrow. I found it fit my narrow feet well in the front, but not in the heel, where I was absolutely swimming. Such a pity because it's a gorgeous boot. Wish they made them in a smaller heel/width. There are almost no boots for folks like me. Arg.

This boot is typical Frye and is one of the best! Very cool but also classic - a boot you'll wear for many years to come. The fit is also typical Frye -- heel is meant to slip a bit ladies so don't look for it to fit snug. Think Dansko clog...I highly recommend, you can't go wrong! One more thing, I usually size up one half size in Frye boots. I find this gives the best fit and makes wearing with a pair of socks easier.

Haven't worm these yet (ordered the same in Crazy Horse Brown (the harness 12R). These are gorgeous leather and fit really nicely (I wear 8.5-9 , and had to return one 9.5. The leather is really gorgeous. The fit: well, my feet are bit wide, so went 1/2 size larger. Glad I did, because they are narrow in the toe box.

Brands I'd also recommend: Frye boots, and Keen boots.

I have not worn these yet. I ordered the same in Crozy Horse Borwn, the harness 12R. These are gorgeous leather and fit really nicely. I wear a 8½-9 , and had to return the 9½ size that I ordered. The leather is really gorgeous. My feet are bit wide, so I went half a size larger. I am glad I did, because they are narrow in he toe box.

Love them! You can't go wrong with a brand like Frye.gorgeous style, thick supe leather and quality crafenship that will last a lifetime. My pair was not as distressed as the pair pictures which I was happy about but everything else was just as the website portrayed it. I gave comfort 4 stars because they are new the leather needs time to stretch out

The boots were marked size women's 7.5, but were huge. According to the size chart, they actually mueasure more like a 9.5, so I returned them and will purchase a new pair when the next shipment comes in with size 7.5. They are gorgeous!

The boots are fabulous. I adore them after having many sizes sent and thinking I wanted Chestnut at first. I finally ended up picking black, which I love. So comfortable, finally ended up with an half size smaller than I ever wear, so they do run big. If you're looking for a treat, get them!

This was my first pair of Frye boots and three years later they are still my first go to boot. I have them in Chestnut and the color was gorgeous right out of the box. They have a couple scuffs on them now, but I don't think they detract from the boots at all. I still get compliments every time I wear them. They were definitely worth the price for them and Zappos.com is awesome to work with.

I love these boots! They are beautifully made, very comfortable, and go with many different fashion options. They're western boots, so they do "make your feet look big," but I'm a 5 1/2 to start with, so this is not a problem for me. The heel height is just high enough for my long jeans, but low enough for comfy walking. The mid-calf shaft height was new for me, and Zappos provided accurate measurement and fitting details that really helped me choose correctly. I also loved that I could review all the available boot options in my size to narrow down to a few faves. The free shipping clinched the deal.

Amazing boot! Gorgeous quality and extremely comfortable (even for someone like me who usually wears no heel at all)! I usually wear an 8.5, but ordered an 8 for this boot and they work out perfectly. I can see how they might be a bit of an issue for people with very wide feet; however, overall I'd say they will mold to accommodate your feet. These will last a lifetime, and I can't wait to wear them for years and years. Comfortable after only a few wears right out of the box. I have average sized calves, and I can easily wear these over skinny jeans!

Great boots; they run a half size large, so normally I wear a 6, but in Frye, always a 5.5. Cute, great quality, but they do slip in the heel, so a small pad helps. And Zappos is the best company! Came the next day. LOVE Zappos!!!!!!!

I love these boots. This is actually my second pair. Now a warning, the toe is narrow and they will hurt and give you blisters at first, but they will break in. I consider this a normal part of having boots. Once they're broken in they'll last you 20 years. They're my fourth pair of Fryes I think so I'm a bit biased, but what can I say. Also a word to the wise, Frye is known for having very inconsistent sizing; sometimes they run small sometimes large.

So pleased! I've wanted these boots for years and years and finally ordered them. They are spectacular - the leather is substantial and richly colored. Contrary to what many people have said about sizing down, I ordered my usual size, 9, and am glad that I did. To be certain there is "slippage" in the heel, but I think that is to be expected with this style of boot. My feet tend to be happy in shoes made by Keen, if this is of help for anyone - maybe tending toward the slightly wide? Zappos service is as usual far beyond expectations... boots and company both highly recommended!

Thank you Zappos for a friendly voice on the phone, and amazing speed with delivery! The boots are gorgeous! A little narrow in the toes for me. Next time I would probably order an 8 and an 8 1/2, and then just return one.
