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.

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!

YIPPEE KAI-YAY! I have been a Frye lover for almost 20 yrs & I'm still in my 30s. I still own my Original Harness boots (they were made with Vibram soles at the time which I miss), but when I had my first child, my feet sadly grew so will be saying goodbye to my beloved boots. SO... looking for a replacement, I made the monetary leap and ordered these on a whim since the Harness boots being made now just aren't fitting right. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Carson. I found them true to size (9), but I do wear them with heavier athletic socks. Extremely comfortable... I could go on for days. The only reason they haven't walked out my door on my feet is the cost (oh if they only were in the same price range as the Harness) and I can't decide what color. I got the Blue which is beautiful! But there are 4 other colors I know I would also love! (If they were cheaper, I would get a couple colors!) Hey, I had to give up over half of my shoes/boots when my feet changed... sigh... I know I'll be keeping them... in some variation. Of course, Zappos is my new religion! They are wonderful!

I have to contribute to the praise of these gorgeous boots. I was watching them for about six months - hoping they’d go down in price. Now I understand why they haven’t… they’ve instantly become my favorite boot and are worth the price. I just moved to a city where I’m walking a lot and it seems like Frye are the only boots I can wear all day long, without pain. I’m considering ordering other colors just because I have a feeling I’ll be wearing these a lot. If you’re thinking about buying these, get them. You’ll be so happy you did!

I ordered these in natural and brown. The brown is not as shiny, or deep, as it appears on the website; but the natural were precisely what I wanted. These boots are magnificent! Prior to, I had tried the Harness boots and was unhappy with the fit. These boots were rated to fit well and they did. I ordered a 7, (normally wear 7.5-8) as was suggested by another reviewer, and they fit perfectly. I returned 3 Harness boots and one Carson in about 2 weeks time without any problems. Thanks Zappos!

Awesome boot!!!! These boots are ...awesome!! The first day I wore them they were comfortable ALL DAY--and I am on my feet running for subways and work in NYC. It was also 90 degrees and I was NOT HOT!! But I got a lot of looks as these boots are gorgeous with a skit and sox--no stockings.

This boot has officially become my default everyday boot. It is stylish, in a classic and hippie-chic way, so it goes with any sort of outfit. From skirts for that classic look, to shorts for the indie look, to dresses for the flair of it. The fit is fantastic, and I am PICKY about shoes (I have a size 11, usually...in these I am a 10... I'd suggest going down a half to a whole size) and it is often VERY hard for me to find shoes that are comfy. These took about 10 minutes to feel "broken in" enough for me to be convinced that I will wear these shoes for as long as they will last and probably buy other colors of them in the meantime. Absolutely worth the money, and I am not a rich girl that buys fancy shoes every day. These are worth it. And Zappos is an incredible company.

Glorious!!! I got these in Jade on a whim and I am soooo thrilled with them. I ordered my usual size and they feel and look like a dream. Super soft and comfy the second I put them on. Show stopping boots! If you are on the fence-just go for it! Worth every penny. As for Zappos service-I should be used to it by now, I know, but they still thrill me. I ordered yesterday and they arrived today. Seriously-how do they do it?

Looks badass, feels excellent... I have the boot in smoke, which is a dark, dark brown, and I love it... very rocker chic and very comfortable, and looks good w/ skirts even though I have thin calves. Also looks good tucked into pants. I usually wear within size 7 to 8 and I purchased these in a 7 and they fit perfect. My foot does not slip when I wear these. Although the leather of the boot is not "stiff" and may appear to not have much support to hold it up (the leather is really soft) the boot stays up just fine. Has a lot of attitude and is not your typical "cowboy" style boot. Look at Free People's website for good photos of women wearing these boots so you can get a better idea of how they actually fit. Highly recommended.

I ordered these boots Weds, received them Thursday, and am wearing them right now! Thanks Zappos. I have several pairs of Frye boots and shoes. (One can never have too many Fryes.) I ordered a size 9, my usual size. These boots fit great, are so soft, and comfortable. I like that they are lightweight, great for spring, and maybe even sometimes in the summer. I do commend Zappos on their excellent service.
