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.

"Handsome and Gorgeous boot!" I ordered these boots at 1:30pm and they were at my home the next day at 10:30am! Fabulous customer service! I love my boots! I wear between a 6.5 and a 7 and the 7's are perfect. My heel slips out but I find this a "Frye thing". They aren't as comfortable as a Justin boot but I take the look any day. The Vibram sole is a must! If you have wide feet a medium width will be too narrow. The brown/slate color gives me both "a brown and black boot". I love the quality leather! Thanks Zappos!

Great Retro look! I bought an 8 as I usually wear an 8.5. I found the 8 was too big. I printed a free return label online and then called the toll free number to get the 7.5. The customer service rep was incredibly helpful and friendly. The exchange could not have been any easier. They sent the 7.5 out immediately and I got them, they fit and I returned the 8. They never even charged me the $200 while they were waiting to get the 8s back! They fit very well but do slip a little bit in the heel. I'm told that may work itself out with wear. They have a funky 70's look which I love. Can wear them with a jean skirt or jeans I just love them and I LOVE ZAPPOS! They make it so easy to shop. I tell all my friends to use Zappos.

Great service - After researching this boot, I ordered 1/2 size smaller than I usually wear. I believe the fit would have been perfect if I could have only gotten them on! I finally got the left one on. It fit like a glove, but I could never get the right one on. I'm sure this is because of my high arch. This has happened to me before! Order a half size down unless you have the same problem. When I reordered, my boots came the following day by noon! The return was easy and free! Zappos has the best service around. The size I have now will work with thick socks.

A Sloppy fit for a narrow foot - These are well made, long wearing, great looking, but they are too wide and loose on a narrow foot, from the heel through the toe. Thick socks and insoles make them barely wearable, but if you have narrow feet, (which are really hard to get decent knock around boots for!) try Kenneth Cole styles instead, they aren't quite as cavernously roomy in a B width as Frye's.

These boots are the perfect choice for being on my feet all day. They look great under pants and over or under jeans. The leather is extremely soft and durable and they have just the right amount of edge for my style sense.

Love these boots! The leather is so soft and they look great with everything. I'm only sorry that I waited so long to purchase these boots. I wore these all over Las Vegas for 3 days straight and my feet never hurt at all. If you've been on the fence about spending too much on these boots, you will definitely get your money's worth. Buy them now and you won't regret it for even a second!

These boots are amazing. I've had them over a year and wear them often. They look great with jeans AND skirts. I have a muscular calf so many boots do not fit well, but these are great. I have wider feet (A wide shoe flops right off, but regular ones tend to be tight). I tried many boots and these ones are ok. They are a little narrow, but a thin sock works ok. I can't wear them every day, but one full day at a time is fine. The quality is great. The look is sharp. And the non-skid bottom is a necessity.

I love these boots sooo much! I've had them for about a year now and the downfall to the shape of the toe is that they still give me blisters if i wear very thick socks, but they're pretty warm in the winter and they always make me feel a little dressed up. They are one of the few items I have bought and not second-guessed, which says a lot because I am picky. They're worth the price.

I admit I was confused by all the discussion of which size to order. I ordered my normal size 8, and found that the boots fit perfectly with thicker athletic type socks. When I tried thinner socks, the toe box felt a little tight, probably because my foot was slipping forward. I would not like a smaller size as I think the length would not be as correct. Love the boots! Very comfortable right out of the box with the right socks.

Love these boots! I originally ordered the Harness 8R, but could not even get my foot in the boot. So I returned them and got the Belted Harness 12 R and I ordered a half-size up, but that was not necessary. They are a little big, but I kept them anyway. They are comfortable and I get a lot of compliments on them.

I've become a Frye fanatic. I saw someone who had these boots and I just had to have them too. I'm glad I ordered them. They are great. I love the way they look with jeans, dresses, leggings... They're a combination of a cowboy boot and an engineer boot. I did have to reorder them in a half size smaller. But with Zappos awesome next day delivery I was wearing them immediately. Thanks Zappos.

Love these boots! Like all Frye boots, they are built to last. Gorgeous leather, not difficult to break in, comfortable, and rich color. They are a bit heavy to wear, but I expected that...

I had the best online shoe buying experience ever when I purchased these boots. Not only are they great boots, but the Zappos rep made my purchase so easy and hassle-free, I will always check Zappos first for online purchases. I had been wanting a pair of these boots for some time, and had checked out many other websites for price, shipping and return policies. I was concerned about the fit, since so many other buyers had reported that these boots ran both big and small. The Zappos rep suggested I order my normal size, and that if they did not fit, return them via their free shipping. She also gave me free overnight delivery (which where I live is never actually overnight -- but there they were the next day!). I highly recommend Zappos for their expertise and courteous service. Zappos, you rock! As for the boots themselves, they are very high quality, are comfy and stylish. I get a lot of compliments on them. If you have any doubts about what size to order, the best way to gauge it is my the measurement of your foot in inches. I ordered this way, and it worked out beautifully. Again, thanks, Zappos.

Best shoes/boots I have ever owned! They are absolutely worth the money! Very comfortable and they go with just about every outfit. The leather is soft and molds to your feet within the first day of waring them. I get asked almost every day where I got my boots :) *NOTE... These boots are hand made so each pair will fit a little different. The first pair I received did not fit right so zappos sent me a 2nd pair at no charge!

I couldn't be more of a consistent size 10 and I found that size in these particular boots was too big. The shaft was too loose around my calf and my heel was sliding around (I tried them on in a store with a thick sock). The size 9 1/2 was perfect...consider sizing down a half size! Besides that...they are so beautiful. If you're on the fence based on the price tag - you'll have these for 10+ years. And you'll look fabulous. Decision decided. Buy.

Love them! They fit big, so go down at least a half size. I am 5'6 and they go to mid calf. Everyone wants them when I wear them. They will only get better with time. Very well made. No, they are not cheap and there are cheap replicas out there. These will last forever - the cheap ones...well cheap becomes expensive. That is because you will end up replacing the cheapos.

Why did I wait so long to order these? I have found my soulmate in a boot. I am 99% of the time a size six in shoes and these are right on. With socks they are the tiniest bit tight but they will be perfection over time. The quality is unreal. I bought the chestnut color - to die for! They even smell amazing! Thanks Zappos for the great turn around time and the fantastic boots!

Awesome boots. Coolest ever. I am very pleased with these boots. Comfortable. Pretty easy to get on and off and look fabulous. I usually wear an 8, but the 8 was a little big. The 7 1/2 fit perfectly. This boot will last for years and only get better with age.

Frye's Belted Harness 12R - Love the boot, true to size, no break in needed. Best of all.... Made in the USA how can you go wrong. Also, dealing with Zappos is always a positive experience. They bend over backwards to please.

Love the buckles! I was tired of other boots wearing out after a season and wanted to find a high-quality product. I was so impressed with my Frye engineer boots that I decided to try these. Besides being cute, these were comfortable right out of the box and did not require any breaking in. I bought some inserts for extra cushion and they're even better. I normally wear a 9 1/2 or 10, but ordered a 9 and the size is perfect. LOVE Zappos customer service and fast shipping!

Great for Manhattan blocks - These boots are great for anyone that does a lot of walking like me. I have the Engineer 12R also... which are not comfortable at all. Walking in the Engineer's for about an hour or a little more...tore the skin open right above my heels and left scabs around my calves. (If anyone has suggestions for comfort that would be great). The Harness looks as good as it feels.

After a year of waiting, I finally bought 'em - These boots are the best. Comfortable, well-made, tough and durable - if you figure they'll last until you're 80 years old, they really are a good deal! Plus they give you superpowers. Really.
