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.

Adorable and Sassy!! Very Comfortable from the get go. I would recommend getting a 1/2 size smaller than you normally wear.

AWESOME - I love the shoes. They are a little stiff at first, but once you wear them for a while, they are more comfortable. They do slip a little at my heel, I don’t know if it is because I have narrow feet or they run a half size larger. Either way, I really like them and recommend them to anyone.

Awesome quality boot! I ordered the size 8. It feels stiff and snug (because the leather is high-quality and 'thick') at first but begins to give as you wear it.

Good if you don't walk a ton - These are great boots that look awesome and the leather breaks in really nicely around the foot. My only complaint is that they have no insole and my feet got sore if I walked too much. My suggestion is get a half-size larger and put some grey Superfeet insoles in them (they work in Western boots). I did this with my second pair and can wear them much longer with little foot fatigue.

My New Frye Boots - I absolutely love my boots. They arrived very quickly, in perfect condition. The size was perfect, I bought a half size smaller than normal. The leather is soft and they are very, very comfortable to walk in… and I do a lot of walking on a daily basis. I highly recommend buying from Zappos!

Flattering and SAFE! I just bought another pair of Frye harness boots to replace an indispensable pair that I bought last year which quickly became fashion WORKHORSES going from the plant nursery by day to music concerts at night. The other day I was unloading redwood log sections from my truck when my grip slipped and a one-hundred lb. log landed on my TOE. Dented the boot, but my toe is fine! Thank you Frye!

Hot, Hot, Hot - These boots are AWESOME. One reviewer stated her Fryes made her feel thinner and more confident. It is all true! I walk with more confidence in my Fryes. I feel fantastic in my Fryes. The best money I ever spent. Comfortable and sexy at the same time. A powerful combo. You cannot go wrong. Zappos and Fryes are dynamite! They do run a half size larger, but no worries there. Buy your Fryes, you will not regret it.

Great Service - I received my Frye Boots the very next day after I had ordered them. The first pair did not fit so I sent them back with no extra charges and ordered another pair. This second pair fit well and I never had to pay shipping. I like that very much. I am very pleased with Zappos. Thanks, C. Guinn

Fabulous boots - I do love Frye. I have these in both the black and the chestnut and love them both. Out of interest, has anyone noticed that their 12R harness boots - both belted and plain - differ by about 1cm in height?! I've never seen a pair the same height. I don't think they exist :). These boots are true to size on me.

I've been stomping around town in Frye Engineer boots for almost ten years now and they're still going strong, but I wanted a sleeker boot that would still be able to shrug off all the abuse I put my footwear through. I fell in love with these Belted Harness boots when I saw them and knowing my past experience with Frye's high level of quality and comfort, I splurged. (After all, my engineers are battered in a gives-them-character way, but are otherwise still in perfect condition. I expect to be wearing them for another ten years.) I'm so happy I bought these. The leather is thick and sturdy, yet buttery-soft. I wore them right out of the box for several hours without a single blister or raw spot. They do run big - I normally wear an 8, bought the 7.5, and added a pair of insoles since I spend a lot of time of my feet. The 7.5s fit perfectly and I can still fit a thick sock for colder weather, but those in warmer climates or those with very narrow feet might consider going down a full size. Also, this might sound odd, they're a lot quieter than my engineer boots. They're just overall a lot less clunky and will look great under jeans, over jeans, or with leggings and a cute skirt - they're nicely versatile and tough, but not overly masculine. I'm very pleased with the boots and with Zappos' excellent service (they even upgraded my shipping for free to overnight delivery). Now to talk myself out of buying a pair of Frye Campus boots for dressier occasions… at least until next paycheck!

Love these boots! True to size, comfortable, and just all around great boots. Appearance is somewhat rugged, yet since the boots are fairly streamlined, they don't look "chunky" and are flattering to the foot. Love them!

Coolest boots ever - Not only are these boots totally awesome, but the service, speed, and friendliness at Zappos has made me a devoted customer. I don't think I've taken these boots off since I got them a few weeks ago - great with skirts, jeans, etc. Be prepared for some heel movement, but I wouldn't have ordered any smaller than my true size (I'm usually between 8.5 and 9, ordered an 8.5 and am happy with it). I still can't believe I ordered them around 5:00 on a Wednesday and they were waiting by my front door when I came home the next day at 4:00!

I recently bought the belted Harness boots, and I absolutely love them. They are so comfortable and feel as if I’ve had them for years. These are my third pair of Frye boots. I have the Campus style boots, and I also recently bought the Frye Engineer, which I also adore. Since buying both the belted Harness and Engineers within the past two months, I have not worn any other shoe in my closet. I just recently ordered the Frye Harness in black and cannot wait to get them. Frye are now my favorite boot makers.

Frye Belted Harness 12R boot - Got these in the distressed brown. Got a blister on my bunion on the first wear, but after that break-in period - comfy and no problems. These boots look great poking out under a pair of jeans or tucked in. I have several pairs of Frye boots and this is my 2nd pair of harness boots. Very well made and comfortable. Can't beat Zappos RAPID delivery, too!

What a way to shop - Love the boots...they are super comfortable. I don’t think I have gone a day without wearing them since I got them. I had a tiny problem with them and Zappos handled it so quickly that I will always shop with them...they have customer service down to a science...

Gorgeous Boot! These boots are awesome, I've wanted a pair of Frye's forever, and this style is so cool. The fit is right on, and they are comfortable immediately! The brown is varied and beautiful. The quality is way up there. Love them! I get compliments every time I wear them.

Frye Boot Review - I agree with previous reviews. I did order this boot a 1/2 size smaller. They fit well at this size. The leather is so soft on these boots. Many compliments to date.

I love this boot! I wanted a pair of these back in the seventies and never got them. Now I'm a cool, hip granny. I wear them with skirts and jeans. I get lots of compliments. No problem breaking them in either. They're a nice thick leather but break in easily. Ordered my true shoe size 9.5 and they fit great

I love Frye Boots - I purchased the black Frye plain Harness boots last year and adore them. I saw this style on someone else and really liked the silhouette of this design and the buckle at the heel. This has a more straightforward and less western heel shape, which I find far more versatile than the other boots. They fit beautifully and they look amazing. I get tons of compliments every time I wear them. They are heavy, but I wear them with a winter sock and find them easy to walk in and wear. This is a very nice color, too… truly the variation of a chestnut with lighter reddish tones and deeper brown tones. FABULOUS BOOT and WORTH EVERY PENNY.
