This is my first time writing a review for any product, but I felt I should do so for this one because of the fit. I own several pairs of Frye boots, mules and sandals, and these are the first ones that ever felt tight/small in my size. I am always a size 6, but wish I had ordered a 6 1/2 in this boot because my toes feel very cramped (I do have a wide foot) in this boot. I even had them stretched, but to no avail. It's not just a matter of width, either, it is also the length that is shorter than usual. I should have switched the 6 for 6 1/2. Take my advice if your foot is any wider than a B width and order (at least) a half size larger.

Wah! It's a beautiful shoe but I can't even get the front of my foot inside it. This even after I ordered half a size up. Boo. They're going back.

I've read all the reviews. Twice. Here's my 2 cents: order up. I'm a size 9 shoe. I have the Fyre Veronica Shortie in a 9.5 and it is a great fit. Ordered the Billy short in a 9.5 and couldn't get my foot in the boot. Returned it. Called Fyre 800 number and the nice woman told me in the Billy to order a full size larger than my regular size. I did and boots arrived today. Slipped the size 10s right on and I am in love with my boots again! Once you've got the correct size these boots are fantastic! Thanks, Frye Co. and thanks Zappos!

Comfortable walking heel. I normally wear a size 7 but got a 7 1/2 as there is no zipper on these and you need the room to get them on. They are well made, classic, a fashion must-have.

These boots are difficult to get on the first few times but they do stretch! Initially I had to struggle, a shoe horn is a must, but again they will stretch out so I would not recommend going up a size.

Another fantastic Frye boot! Very stylish and a bit to break in, but only gets softer as you go. Just get this boot half a size bigger, since it narrows at the toe. Also, Zappos was great enough to ship overnight without extra cost. Thanks Zappos!

These run incredibly small. I ordered a 6.5 and it was at least one whole size too small. They were out of that size, alas. Always a risk to buy boots before trying them on.

I love these boots. They are fine quality and quite comfortable. I am very glad that I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered half a size up. At first these boots are a bit hard to squeeze into, but once they are on they fit great. I have worn them enough now to have worked them in, and they are easier to get on and off now. I highly recommend them, but definitely order half a size up.

Very comfortable and beautiful boots! Very difficult to pull on, but I'm sure they will stretch out as I use them.

I love this boot! I am not a 'western' girl but these boots give an unexpected edge to a cute outfit that is awesome. I wear them with boot cut jeans or with my slim jeans tucked in, either way super-cute. Plus, they are so comfortable to walk in but give you a little boost in height. They get more comfortable every time I wear them. The leather is incredible quality and has ruined me for cheaper brands. I got the charcoal grey that works well with browns and blacks. I wear a 9 to 9.5, ordered the 9.5 to wear with socks. Fit is great!

Love these boots! I had to go up a full size due to the point and the slim shaft of the boot. Super hot little boot looks great with just about anything from jeans to dresses.

Great boot; I wear a size 5, but purchased a 5 1/2 because that was the smallest size. With thick socks the fit is fine. No break-in time, very comfortable.

I found these boots run true to size. They are very comfortable even for the first time wearing them. I was worried after reading all the reviews about people not being able to get their foot into them but I had no trouble at all. They are super cute and sexy with jeans. I wish they had them in black in my size. I will keep searching until I find them.

Whoa! Order at least a 1/2 size up for sure. I am not even sure if these are the right length because I can't get my foot in them at all. The look great, though, so I am ordering a 1/2 size up on an exchange. Hope they work out.

Love my boots! Excellent quality! They run true to size maybe slightly larger but with boots it's probably best.

Timeless boots! I love them. Yes all the things everyone else say are true. Get a 1/2 size bigger, it is almost impossible to get them on. The plastic bag trick works like a charm. If I could afford more of these boots, I would get them in every color.

I got these in a 9. I wear a 39N in Birkenstocks and 8.5 in most other brands but sometimes get a 9 for sock room or with slip-ons. I have thin ankles and did not find these difficult to get on beyond the first 2 times. Just point your toes and use the pull loops once your heel is positioned to slide into the heel cup. They're comfortable and don't pinch my toes at all. They look cute under bootcut jeans and I'd even wear them with a mid-weight marled wool or cotton sock with shorts and could make them work with an above-the-knee skirt. My only surprise was that they were made in Mexico and not the US.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. These boots are fantastic. My wide-ish feet are a bit pinched in the toe, but that's a given in pointy-toed boots and I think the leather is stretching a bit too. These break in nicely; had a few blisters at first but they're buttery soft now. I love the look of these boots too. My only complaint is that they come pre-scuffed. One was actually more scuffed than the other, so they looked a bit mismatched, but with some wear and some love, they should even out in no time!

Fit about a half-size small because of the shape of the toe box. Otherwise beautiful boots, Frye quality through and through.

Very cute, comfortable. Haven't walked long distances in them yet. Still have difficulty slipping on and off and hope it gets better with more use. The heel is the perfect height. I tried the style with the higher heel and returned them...very uncomfortable. The color is not as brown as in the picture.

Love these boots. They were exactly as I pictured they would be, if not better. I'm not necessarily a country girl but I love cowboy boots, and these boots are perfect. I don't think I'll ever wear them with a dress or outside of jeans, but you anyone can see how great they are under jeans. I have received many compliments about them, and one in particular from a man who wanted to know where I got them! They are petite and sexy and I love them. I didn't have any trouble with them being too big or too small, but I was worried about that based on so many other reviews. Also this color is great!
