I ordered these on Sunday morning there were here bright and early Tuesday. I have the Harness double ring, Campus Crepe, and Bethany. I love Frye! The company is fantastic to work with and I asked them for fit information between this shoe and the Taylor. I wanted something with a slight heel but nothing crazy. I cannot wear high heels to work, but this boot is perfect! And in Smoke! Gray, black, brown goes with all of it! My scrunches a little because the leather is soft, but very well made. My dad has had a pair since the 60's!

Narrow Shaft - Too narrow, even for narrow feet. I ordered these from another web-site and went down 1/2 size as they were men's supposedly. Could not even get my very narrow foot inside the boot, was very disappointed. The leather is very cheap looking and thin, not the usual Frye Quality.

I bought these boots as a present for myself after having my first baby. I was looking for something very special, and these certainly are special. The leather is divine, the jade green is an eye catcher, and they feel like slippers to wear. My two concerns before buying them were that the circumference wouldn't make it around my thick calves (thanks water weight) and that the price seemed selfish prior to having a baby in a very expensive city. Turns out they did make it around my calves thanks to losing some of my water weight and the slight stretch to the boot. As far as price, I figure I will have these boots my whole life, such is the quality and style. But let's say I own them for two years, and I wear them every other day. That's roughly a dollar every time I wear them. With my tired feet and inability to look as well put together as I used to (ah, the changing priorities of motherhood), I think that the price is well worth it. Don't you? New baby, new boots, the world is good. I can't comment on the sizing, as my feet have changed. I did order an 8 1/2 even though I am usually an 8, and it seems a good fit.

I got these in smoke. I think 'bark' would be a more appropriate color name as the color is more brown than grey. Anywho, they are super comfy, maybe slightly on the larger side if you don't wear a thick sock. And they looked cute as hell with my skinnies tucked in. I would say if you had muscular/extra thick calves, there wouldn't be room for tucking jeans in.

Wow, Zappos' shipping is amazing. I ordered these on a Wednesday afternoon and got them on Thursday! I really want to love these boots, but I have to face facts that I'm just not a cowboy boot person. Otherwise, these boots felt really comfortable. The leather is soft, but I don't think it slides down my legs. It's pretty true to size; I vary between 5.5 and 6.5, and the size 6 in the Carson Boot fits perfectly. I'm going to return them because I don't think it's a style I'll wear regularly; but I'm determined to find a pair of Frye boots on Zappos because of the comfort and quality.

Love these boots! Classy, not flashy, and oh-so-soft! Very easy to get on. As with my other Frye boots, I ordered 1/2 size smaller than my normal size. I do wish they had lug soles; I am taking mine to a cobbler to have rubber half-soles put on. Otherwise, they are the perfect boot!

Love love love them. After sampling different styles of Frye (thanks Zappos!) I've found 'my Fryes'! My only complaint -- while I love the style, I'm not crazy about the 'shiny' look of this leather! I wish they were more 'matte' looking. I completely love the the boot though, so am keeping, but does anyone know of a way to get rid of the 'shine' of this leather? Maybe I'll contact Frye to see if they have a suggestion. In the meantime, I'll buy more Fryes from Zappos!

Strangely, not all Frye boot sizing is dependable. These were actually a perfect fit for my size 10 foot. Other Frye's were almost impossible to get on. I love these but would like just a bit more heel and for this much dough they had better be perfect. Reluctantly going back and continuing my search.

Zappos, thank you for your patience! I finally have the pair of Fryes I've been looking for! As others have said, do order at least a half size smaller than your usual size. These boots will stretch a bit, and you don't want your heel to be slipping with every step. After trying several different styles of Fryes, I've settled on the Carson Pull On. They hit me about mid-calf (I'm 5'4"), and are 'slim' enough to fit inside my Levi's pant leg without looking awkward and stiff. Heel height is comfortable and perfect. Will wear them them with both jeans and skirts. Gorgeous. Love!

Fryes are always winners for me. These boots are beautifully constructed and high quality. Immediately comfortable out of the box. Note: I think these boots might not work for someone with larger calves.

These boots are amazingly comfortable. I have a pair of Frye harness boots that are not very comfortable, the leather is too stiff, so I was hesitant to buy another pair, but these feel completely different. I'm very picky about shoe comfort and have a high arch, and these fit right out of the box, no breaking in required. Danced at a wedding for several hours the first time I wore them, with no discomfort whatsoever. They are a little hard to get on at first, but this gets easier with a few wearings. I usually wear an 8, but tried them on in a store and got the 7 1/2, which are perfect. Very happy with my investment!

This is a beautiful boot. Great support, lightweight and supple. Feels great to walk in. I ordered my usual size and it was a bit big. Next time will order 1/2 size down. I'm returning this pair but will order another Frye boot to replace it.

Love these boots! They were comfortable right out of the box, beautifully made, and very flattering. I have narrow feet and calves and this style worked well for me. As with other Frye boots, I ordered a half size smaller than my "normal" size and they fit perfectly.

I loved this boot. The sunrise color is beautiful. The boot fit fine and looked great, but I could only swing for one pair, and got the same model in shorty--eggplant. These are much more practical.

Truly the perfect boot. Goes with everything. I wear them too often. Order a half size down, they run a little large.

I usually wear a 7 but based on other reviews, I ordered down a half size and the 6.5 fits perfectly. I\'m not wearing a boot sock with them though, just regular old Gold-Toes. I wore them to work (with skirts) two days in a row (9+ hours each) and my feet felt great, they are extremely comfortable. The leather is soft, high quality and smells like leather, not dye. The Carson style is very classic, simple and understated. I got the tan and was a little ambivalent about it when I saw it in person but received 5 compliments in one day. I got a pair of Tony Lamas in the same order but haven\'t worn them yet because I like these so much! This will not be my last pair of Frye boots. Highly recommend. Do it, you know you want to.

Awesome boots! I'm not a cowgirl in any sense of the word, but I heard that once you find a pair of cowgirl boots, they will last forever and be the most comfortable shoes you ever own. I gotta say, I agree. I don't know about the lasting forever part, I've only had them for a month or so, but the comfortable part? Oh yeah. They mold to my feet, fit over or under jeans comfortably, are snug enough around my calves so that they don't slouch, and the smoke color is pretty awesome. It's like wearing slippers and this is coming from someone who almost always sneakers. These have replaced those sneakers for the most part and are doing their job fantastically. They are one of the priciest pair of shoes I've ever bought, but I adore them. They're worth it!

I love these, especially the smoke color! I think that they may run a little large though because I had to add a thick insole to get the fit right.

I purchased these boots in white and will wear them through the winter as now is accepted. Will go back for the red now that I have fallen in love with this Frye Carson boot. This is absolutely one of the best buys from Frye that I have made. I love the softness and quality of this great boot.

Theses boots have great style. I got them in red. The red is a lighter shade of red with a hint of pink tones. The leather is supple and soft but looks like it will hold its shape. They are well made. \r\nI have gotten many compliments on them. \r\nAs for comfort; I wouldn\'t say these fall into the comfort shoe category but I can wear them all day. There is modest arch support but I put an orthotic in it and the shoe accomodates it well. \r\n

I just received my Frye boots yesterday. I ordered the burnt red and they are awesome! The fit is perfect. I normally wear a 7 or 7.5 and the 7 fit just right. The color is to die for! It's a perfect neutral red! I can see me wearing these boots forever!

After trying on literally 24 pairs of Frye boots (my UPS guy hates me and my Zappos habit!) I decided on these. They are a soft, beautiful leather yet have enough body to stand up, and the Smoke color is dynamite with everything! My feet are on the wide side and my normal size, 9, was perfect. My second choice was the Billy Pull on and I'll probably go back for those next. Most of the other styles I tried were too narrow for me. The toe box is a little more visible in this boot but I didn't think it was that much of an issue.

All I can say is, Wow! This is one super boot. I have a pair of Frye harness boots and, although I like the rugged look of them, I would say the comfort level is okay at best because the leather is really thick and stiff. The leather on these is super duper soft, really like butter, but they seem to stay up on my leg despite this and even if they slouch just a smidge it still looks nice and relaxed. They slip off easily, my heel doesn't lift and the cushioned footbed feels great. They feel broken in right away. The toe is not too round and not too pointy, and the heel is also not super low and not too high, just gives a bit of height which is perfect. Got the smoke color and it is gorgeous. Looks rich brown with darker shading that gives it that nice, lived-in shade without looking to much like "manufactured shading". These will go with everything. They are pricey, but you get what you pay for in comfort, quality and style.

I received my Frye boots by overnight delivery for free! I love these boots! The leather is so soft and they fit so comfortably. I did not even have to "break them in". I have narrow feet, so I added a foot pad to take up some of the space, but the heel cups me perfectly, so no slippage. I also have thin calves and they are not snug, but they don't hang open and loose like other brands. These are going to be my new favorite boots!
