After a few tries, I am completely satisfied with my Frye Harness 15R boots. I am a size 11 and unfortunately couldn't go down a half size as most reviews suggested - after 10, there are no half sizes. So I ordered the 11 in Charcoal Old Town, and when I got them, they were huge - even with a thick sock. The color was cool but kind of just looked like the black boots 15 years from now - I think I would rather beat them up myself. I sent them back and got the 10 in black, and they are perfect. I will need to wear thinner socks for a while until they break in a bit but they are ideal. They are perfect with skirts and tights, but also look great with skinny jeans and under regular jeans when I'm on the back of my boyfriend's Harley. All around, a perfect boot. This will be my fifth pair of Frye boots and I couldn't be happier. I also have seven pair of Frye shoes and I can say they are all well made and beautiful. Love me some Fryes!

Listen to everyone who says to order this a 1/2 size smaller than you normally would. I didn't heed their advice only to find that my normal size 9 was indeed too big. Whoops. Good thing it's so easy to return things at Zappos! The 8 1/2 is a perfect fit. These boots took a couple of days to break in, but now they are so comfy! I get tons of compliments on them. Which is good because I wear them almost every day!

These are by far the best boots I've ever ordered. The shaft is not too big, the heels aren't going to give me blisters breaking them in, and they have an incredibly tough sole that will not break down anytime soon. I did order a half size smaller, and they fit perfectly.

These are fantastic boots! Not only are they stylish enough to wear with dresses they look equally as well with jeans. The boots are construsted well and will handle our harsh winters. Easy to put on and comfortable to wear make these a new favorite.

Bought them for my daughter. She loves them and they fit true to size. The fact that she didn't return them speaks volumes. I love them and want a pair...but that would be uncool, so I need to find another style. I love Frye boots!

I purchased my regular size 9 in these boots. In general, so many people say to size down in Frye, which I did do with a different pair, but they just don't fit me correctly. I stuck with the 9 and to me these feel true to size. My calves are on the smaller side, but initially these did feel a little snug. With a bit of breaking in, they fit perfectly. Such a beautiful, well-made, high-quality boot. I'm 5'4", although I have longer legs, and these boots fit well. Can't say enough good things about them.

These boots are AWESOME! Gorgeous leather and high-quality craftsmanship Frye is known for. I'm a small girl, 5'6”, 110 lbs and these fit my slender legs well. I love that my calf is not swimming in them. The actual footbed is a bit larger than my other Frye shoes, so I would go down a half size. Simply beautiful boots!

I wear an 8 Medium and this boot runs true to size. How delighted I am to put them on and they fit from the start. Just a week of breaking-in and they will be perfect. Moderate arch support and the knee high length is perfect for jeans, leggings, and skirts. I AM SO HAPPY I purchased these boots. Got the tan and they match everything. If you are a true size 8, these boots will fit.

These boots are well made and beautiful, but not for me. I'm 5'4 and 130# and these boots look way too tall/bulky. I'm also a size 7 in shoes, medium width, and these boots fit about like an 8 1/2. My biggest complaint was that the shaft of the boot had no tapering through the middle...not a flattering look on such a short gal. These boots would work well for a taller woman. I love Frye and have moved on to the Frye harness 12R instead. Way better look for the vertically challenged. Also! Feel good about ordering from Zappos, my return was lost and I called to learn the status of my refund and was upgraded to VIP status. Really great customer service. I'm telling everyone about Zappos.

I can't wait until fall to start wearing these! I did as most others said and ordered a half size down. This was probably a good idea. I slip slightly in the heel, but then I find it slightly tight across my arch/middle of my foot. Maybe even a little on the narrower side, but not overly so where it's uncomfortable. Since I haven't started wearing them (quite unacceptable in 90 degree weather), I don't know how much they'll stretch, etc. but I'm sure they will be just fine. Also, being summer, my feet are probably a little swollen. It was cool enough to wear jeans the other night so I decided to see how they would work tucked into the boots to get an idea. I have a 14 inch or a little less calf and my skinnies fit into them, so they will also be fine with a little bit of a wider cut as well. I was wearing a thinner sock, but will hopefully stretch them enough to be able to wear a thicker sock come winter. But they're totally worth the investment; I'm in love with them.

Just received these boots and love them! They look great and excellent quality. I was concerned about what size to get, as most reviewers suggested going a size smaller. I usually wear an 8 1/2 or a 9 in shoes, but I have a wide foot, so I went with the 8 1/2 in the boot, and I think it's a good fit. The toe area is a little tight, but I feel it will stretch out a bit with wear. If you have a wide foot, I would not size down, but get your normal shoe size. If you have a narrow foot, go a size down. They are a bit loose in the heal, but that is the nature of the style and I find this the case with my other pair of Frye boots.

I am very happy with my purchase! I took other reviewer's advice and originally ordered the tan half a size down, a size 8, which fit lengthwise but the width was too small, even to try and stretch out with wear. I returned for my true size, 8.5, and the fit is much more comfortable. The shaft is snug on my bare 14.5-15" calves but it should work with jeggings. The leather is great, the rubber sole rugged and non-slip, and the whole boot is awesome Frye quality. They are very comfortable and make me look and feel like a tough girl. I get compliments whenever I wear them, from men and women. Bottom line: true to size, great quality, comfort, and look, and you can't beat Zappos service!

These boots are wonderful. I have a pair of 11 in another color and ordered a 10 because they stretched out so much. After a week of wearing them they are perfect! can't wait to order another color.

Great quality made boots from the materials to the construction and style. Unfortunately they run more narrow through the calf than the Veronica Slouches. Not quite for me which is too bad because they are so stylish!

Great boot and very comfortable. The size is just right. It mat be difficult to tuck pants inside the boot. Maybe leggings will do better than jeans. They do fit snug around the leg. Just the right height for the longer legged people. Nice color. Looked for it another color which had more of a reddish brown. Happy with this color.

These are beautiful boots, but be aware that it might take a few tries to get the color/size that is right for you. I'm a size 10 and ordered a 9 1/2 as recommended. Although the length was good on my bigger foot, the foot bed was not wide enough, and I tend to have narrow feet. I've ordered a 10, and hope they are not huge, especially since the 9 1/2 fit perfect on my smaller foot. Pregnancy really did a number on my feet.

I love Frye! I have another pair of Frye boots and wanted to treat myself to new ones this year. These boots are beautiful. I love wearing them with skinny jeans or with a dress. I wore them to my engagement photos. Like other reviews, I recommend getting a half size smaller. I did that and I still have a little room but it's fine because I like wearing thick socks with these.

These are probably my favorite boots ever. I have the Veronica Slouch in black; it's nice but not "rugged". I tried the Campus 14L but it was too narrow in the calf. So I came to the Harness, which I was afraid would be too much like the Veronica but it's not and very rugged looking boot, really all that Frye is about. I have a 15" calf so the 8 1/2 (my usual size) was a little snug; okay with skirts but not with jeans. I took them to a cobbler who put them on a stretcher for a week and now they are perfect. They probably would have stretched out that much over time anyway, but I wanted to have them ready sooner and love these boots.

I just want to say that I really love these boots, but finding the right size was a real challenge. I tried everything from a 6 to a 7.5 and even wide sizes. Thank goodness for Zappos easy/free return policy. If it were not for that I probably would have given up on ever purchasing them. In the end I ended up with a 6.5 which is a 1/2 size smaller than I usually wear and will need a light sock.

Love these! The charcoal color is beautiful. They were slightly tight in the very beginning, but not enough to go up a size. You can tell it's the kind of tightness that will go away after you break it in a bit. I'm starting to develop an addiction to Frye's. I also have the Campus 14L in brown (also beautiful). Outside of work, these are the shoes I go to for everything...leggings, jeans, skirts, dresses...everything! These are 2 inches taller in the shaft than the Campus. I like the taller boots, so that's a bonus.

I originally bought these boots from Amazon. During shipping the boots were lost, and I was credited a refund. I found them here, and with free UPS shipping. I love these boots, they are so well made. No heel equals comfort.

These are classics! But, I had to return them for another size. I agree with the previous reviewers the sizes on the harness are really variable and for this pair, I need to go down a half size, for others, up a half size!

Yahoo! Finally found the boots that are going to work for me. Passed them over initially because of the calf width listed in product description. However, as some options didn't pan out, I started trying more styles. Tried 4 pairs of this boot, all size 10. Each pair fit differently, with most being too big. Pair I'm keeping fits good through the foot with a bit of heel slippage. Shaft height is perfect for my 5'9" height, and calf width works for my 15" + calves! Did not like the tan color. Actual product darker than what was pictured on screen and had the distressed look. Black is smooth, beautiful leather. Boot seems very well made.
