These boots are gorgeous! I'm 5'10" and the size 10 boot was plenty long. It fits perfectly over my knee and looks great up or folded down. The boot scuffs easily, but is equally easy to polish back to perfection. I'm very happy with my investment! I like the close fit around my ankle. Very sexy. Received tons of compliments during my first outing in these boots.

Just got these and I am amazed at how stylish these look on and the wonderful quality of materials and workmanship! The leather is buttery and sturdy with a flattering shape. i was debating between these and the Stuart Weitzman 50/50 for a sleek OTK boot and so glad I chose these. They have a narrow shaft (which I wanted) so it is slimming to my medium width calves. Plus, I believe they are waterproof, though I’ll still treat them, so they are great for wet weather. The Stuart Weitzman's are gorgeous, too, but they cost more and half of that is paying for an elastic fabric backing. No regrets with the Frye Shirley!

Bought these boots last year and they are to die for - have two colors and love them. Just wanted to add another review and advise you buy the Woodlore boot trees for them too - the leather is so soft that I found these boot trees work wonders at keeping the creases in control.

I absolutley love these boots. I wanted over the knee and something I could wear around all day without bothering my knee. I did not want much heel. I probably tried 20 pairs before deciding on these. They were a little expensive but feel like I will have them for long time, so worth it. You cannot go wrong with a combination like Frye and Zappos.

I love these boots. I usually run a 8.5 in most shoes, and I ordered that in this boot. But when it came it was too long, so I would suggest ordering a half size down. The boot is awesome. The look is so sexy, and as always with Frye, the quality is there. The look is so sexy with a short skirt.

These are the coolest boots ever. I found the suede tan ones on sale. They are very narrow! Most Fryes are, anyway they are really nice leather, great quality and timeless style. I cannot wait to wear these puppies.

Very nice! I found these on sale and decided to take the plunge. The leather is drop dead beautiful! It is however very narrow in the fore foot. If you don't have narrow feet, these are probably not the boots for you! I'm also tall 5'11, and the boot hits me just right!

True! You will want to get these in every color. So, perfect; shaft, style and circumference. Best looking knee height boots I've ever seen. May not be for someone with big calves though. I've got taupe leather for summer, warm days. Dark brown wax suede for all occasion, this color is so Frye, so country like. Leather is softer than suede. Wish heels are half an inch higher...

I've been waiting for these boots to go on sale for the longest time. When I finally checked yesterday they were down to 290! So excited I placed the order right away, and got them today. Really fast shipping. I'm so glad I bought them. These boots are gorgeous! They are comfortable and absolutely stunning. I cannot wait to wear, these leather boots are perfect!

I love these boots! They were the only color left in a size 10 and I did not expect to like them, but they fit perfectly, and stand out against my jeans without being garish. They tend to pick up dirt but a rubber suede cleaner helps. It can dress up or down. I am 5'10" and have long legs, and would like them to be an inch longer; and they are a bit loose around my calves but within what I would call a good fit.

I love these boots! Totally worth the money. Like other ratings, they are a bit big. I typically wear a 7.5, sometimes 8 as my feet are wide. I returned the 7.5 for a 7 and they fit much better, although a bit tight in the width. Not concerned as they will stretch. Now I want the black pair.

Beautiful boots: the style, the leather, the color are gorgeous. I have to return them because they are too big. I am a size 9 but usually fit 8.5 in boots. I ordered size 8.5 but still 1/2 size too big. Also they are very narrow.

These shoes are awesome. I have wanted them for a while, have been stalking them online, and really it was the reviews that pushed me into buying them. They look great, feel great, and cause people to stop and look. I cannot say enough and well worth the price.

It is everything they promised and more. Easy on and off, true to size; yet with room for a pair of socks; if they are not too thick. Beautiful, comfortable, and chic! Buy it!

Get these boots. I have two pairs because I loved the first so much. I am 5'11" so finding tall boots is a challenge for me. I love the over the knee look and the dark brown is so classy looking. They are super comfy and can wear them all day. So worth the money and the quality with Frye is so good I don't think I will ever buy boots with anyone else. I am normally a 9 but I get these in an 8.5.

I wanted these to work so badly! But in the end I am sending them back. They are beautiful but just don't hit me in the right spot when unfolded. Also, they are a little tight on my calves so my jeans would have to be leggings. Also, with a dress they hit the wrong place on my knee when unfolded. Grrr… My search continues. Darn, since they are so pretty!

After reading the reviews, I decided to forget the price and go for these boots. I have been watching them forever. Alas! I was disappointed. I ordered the black. They are absolutely beautiful. The leather is the high quality one have come to expect from Frye. It is soft and shiny. I went down half a size and the fit was comfortable without socks. However, they were too tight with socks. Also, I am 5'7" with long legs. The shaft fit me at the crook of my knee. It did not go over my knee at all. I needed 2 more inches for it to be an over the knee boot for me. Goodness! I can not seem to find an over the knee boot that is at least a 23" shaft. I also purchased "The Cool People" over the knee boot. It too is of very high quality leather and soft. But, the shaft again does not go over my knees. I guess my search continues.

I have been looking for over the knee boots for months. Most regardless of price were made of cheap materials and had a poor fit. These Frye "Shirley" boots are wonderful! The quality of the leather is substantial and the fit is heavenly. I immediately waterproofed the leather...3 times and no issues. The boots kept their shape and color. The fit is like a slipper...no pinch points or sloppy spots. The roll over top cuff is very nice. The boot looks great up or rolled down. The photos don't do it justice. Order the boot and try them on yourself...you will see it is the nicest boot you will ever have. I consistently shop at Nordstrom and NM so please believe me when I say this is a great quality item. I ordered them on a Sunday afternoon and received them on a Tuesday...better than going to the store any day.

These boots are absolutely beautiful, and the sizing seems very true. Great quality (well, they are Frye's) and a beautiful colour. Highly recommended.

I'm not sure the picture illustrates just how soft the leather is on these boots. I received a different style of Frye boot at the same time as these, and the leather on these is much softer. Also, there are slight color variations throughout the boot, giving it a beautiful, distressed look. I am 5'7, and the boot (when cuffed) comes just under my knee. This is what I was hoping. Uncuffed, the boot goes over the knee completely. The boot is comfortable right out of the box. The sizing was true to size for me. I would recommend these highly.

Great boots! It took me a while to get the right color/size but it was so easy with free delivery and returns! The boots themselves took a little wearing it but they are such a beautiful supple leather once worn in and I know I will have them forever! Really comfortable now and great craftsmanship! Definitely recommend them!

Purchased these boots last week, live in Canada, and they have already arrived! Very fast service. Boots are awesome! Finally found a pair of Fryes that will fit in all ways. Have a side zip which is awesome, since I cannot even get the pull on boots half way up! Very nice elegant boot, which, can be worn with the cuff down also. I would not hesitate to purchase these boots again!

These boots are high quality, fit great, and are very comfortable. I get compliments every day I wear them. They are my new favorite winter shoes. They only took a couple wears to break in! I would recommend them to anyone.

Brands I'd also recommend: Type Z are really nice!
