Years ago had a pair of Frye boots, loved them. Came home one night to find out that wife had thrown them out (apparently she didn't like them). She soon became ex wife. Skip to present, mid life crisis, decided to buy myself another pair of Frye boots, chose the Jackson inside zip. Very comfortable. I wear a size 9.5, sometimes 10, and with these the 9's fit very well, so I do agree with others who say they run a little large. Have a heel insert in and the fit is perfect. Boots very well made, look good with jeans, could also wear them to work. Very happy with my purchase. And most important my (current) wife of 24 years loves them and thinks they look awesome.

I ordered these boots a while ago, and have owned them for almost a year now. The first thing I notice with these boots when I got them was the styling I loved the look of the buckles and the feel of the leather definitely up to par. With boots I always like to get a 8½W, sadly most dress shoes do not come in a wide. I ordered the 8½ and as I had feared and slightly expected it was narrow, most leathers stretch and I expected this to happen so I did not mind. However for wearing these constantly for 10 hours minimum three days a week it took much longer then expected. I would recommend if you wear a wide to simply size up ½ for the added immediate comfort. I picked these shoes for the reason that they had the rubberized under. I expected to have a better grip when walking and more durability overall. Working at the airport I come across countless different floors: carpets, tiles, tarmac, concrete, to metal graded stairs. While the under was very durable the metal graded stairs did take a toll on stitching and after a year a portion has come lose (the stitching is simply decoration as the under are glued to the upper.) One of the unders has come unglued at the front as well. Something I actually was worried about and with reason was about the upper the leather is soft and will scuff and scratch every easily against surfaces and corners. So while my work is rather tough on the shoes I had still expected a better longevity from them for the price I paid. Simply put These are a great stylish shoes. They are true to the size and comfort is great, if you wear a wide size up ½ as they will be tight otherwise but they will stretch if you to stretch them. If you do a lot of walking and moving around on several different types of surfaces the under will take it but for expended periods of time the boots will wear out much faster then expected. The upper scuffs every easily so be careful. For those that have to occasionally need to me in a rough work industry I don't recommend them to you for its price not worth it. One year and I need a new pair of dress boots.

This is a fantastic pair of boots, perfect fit, extremely comfortable for work (work in field of medicine) and other events. I can wear them all day very comfortably, I have barely taken them off since I got them. For boot lovers, I highly recommend these practical and very cool looking pair of Fryes.

These boots are great all around. They have a rugged sole that will take you through some rough terrain but are sophiscated and not at all boxy like some other boots. Please be aware, the leather stretches somewhat and I highly suggest order a half to a full size smaller than shoes you regularly wear. Once the leather stretches out, the boot molds to your feet like a second skin and are just great.

An excellent addition to any wardrobe, classic while looking hip. These boots are very comfortable; I can wear them all day long. As with all Frye products, they're comfortable out of the box and will take whatever beating you give them, and still look good.

I normally wear a shoe size 9.5 to 10 depending on company and ordered a 9.5 and it fit perfectly. Hardly any break in period, fit great out of the box, and looks great. Arch support is good.

The only problem I had was that it feels like it will be too shallow to add a gel insole. I have a pair of heel only insoles that make them very comfy. They look great.

I thought Frye was made proudly in the USA?! These boots were made in Mexico? A good looking boot but way too tight in the ankle area. Had to return mine.

Buyer beware! While it appears that these boots have welt-stiched leather soles, that is not the case! Frye has created the illusion of real welt stitching but has simply glued a thin leather strip around the base of the sole. Within months my boot sole was flapping around, exposing a cheap glue-job...I'd been had! Luckily Zappos honored the return 9 months out (thanks, folks!) and I can warn others to avoid this model. Shame on you, Frye Boots!

I enjoy wearing boots, preferring them to low shoes for casual wear especially in the cooler months of the year, but I have great difficulty in finding boots that are kind to my feet which are narrow at the heel, wider at the toe and fairly high arched. Roper-style boots are best, and ones with an adjustable strap are usually the way to go. These Fryes seem to be a very good solution. I have had them for a couple of weeks and they are getting nicely broken in, but they were pretty kind to my feet the very first time I slipped them on. The generous rounded toe gives me enough room at the front widthwise, and the adjustable strap prevents my toes from getting jammed forward without feeling constricted around the ankle. Good leather, very nicely made and the non-skid soles look like they will be durable, but they are not too stiff. These boots may be the go-to boots in my closet from now on. I would have liked the barrel to be an inch or two higher, but I knew what I was getting so I am willing to compromise a bit on style for the comfort I am getting.

I've had these for about 3 weeks now, and overall I'm very happy. The boots look great and feel very durable. The only minor complaint I have is that the insoles aren't as comfortable as I would've hoped after long durations (over an hour) of walking. But despite that, the insoles are made of quality leather just like the rest of the boot, and I expect to be wearing these for several years.

These boots are beautiful. The craftsmanship is top-notch, the leather feels supple and luxurious, but strong. The zipper is tough and has a comfortable pull, and it hides on the inside so it's not obvious. The interior is clean and smooth. While mysteriously sized larger than most other shoes, it's worth finding your 'Frye size' and checking out these boots. They're a compliment to any casual or business attire, even if you're not from Texas. I have the dark brown color, and I'm quite happy with them. They go with much of my wardrobe. Another quite nice touch is the sole, which is rubberized inside, so it grips the ground well and has low-slip, but the edges have the style of a leather shoe. Impressive.

Got these for my husband and he absolutely loved them, they are such a great looking boot. Can't go wrong! According to him, they are comfortable as well, aside from that they are truly a well made boot with great attention to detail.

Awesome boot. I got the taupe which is lighter and more on the grey side than the picture. I initially got the 10 because I read the reviews said they run a half size to small. This was not the case. I need a 10 1/2 D and that is exactly what these are. If you are wider than a D, look at the next size up. If you have never been fitted for boots by someone that knows what they are doing, you are missing out. Running shoes, hikers, etc can run bigger because your toes may need more space and the laces can tighten to fit. Zappos was as always great about the exchange.

It took me 4 pairs of Frye boots to settle on this one here, in a size 10, which is a full size smaller than I usually wear (I always wear Naots in a 44EU or 11US shoes). Excellent customer service to return and exchange each one, I was impressed with Zappos; a bit frustrating, but in the end I'm glad I went through it. I first tried the Frye Fulton Cuff boots in a 11.5, and the Jackson Inside Zip in sizes 11, 10.5, and 10, the 10.5 having defects (buckle lining coming undone, poor closure on top sole seam due to craftsmanship), but it didn't feel a correct fit anyways. I had never worn Frye boots before, always wearing Naot shoes and Doc Martens. The 10 fits snug in the heel and is the perfect narrowness for my foot; Have minimal heal slippage, and about 1/2" toe room to wiggle the toes. The buckle gives good instep support. If you like your boots snug and not with too much swimming in them, they run very narrow and a half to a full size large, so keep that in mind. Leather in Antique taupe is beautiful and elegant, with each pair coming with its own tones and imperfections. Waterproofed them with the Frye Weatherproofing Spray, and now feels good-curious to see how well the spray works; it did darken the boots drastically, but they still look fine. Let's see how long it takes to wear them in a bit.

I got these as a gift for my husband. He has been wearing them for a few weeks, and still breaking them in. Overall, he is happy with them and says they are very comfortable for walking and standing for long periods of time. They are also really good looking and high quality, as per usual with Frye. However, he has some issues with the fit. They are narrow in the toe box, and they are still slipping in the heel a bit. They have even given him a couple of small blisters. He did not want to go down half a size because they would be even narrower in the toe box. But he did not want to go up in size because of the slipping in the heel.
