These boots just arrived on my doorstep and they are gorgeous! A very well-made, high quality boot. In response to the reviews that indicate that the ankle looks "weird" and make reference to "cankles," I would say that you need to understand that the style of this boot is somewhat slouchy. There will be some slouching in the ankle. It's not necessarily unflattering; it's just the style - a more relaxed look as opposed to a sleek, refined look.

Not what I expected from Frye. This is the second pair of boots I tried, and the second one that broke! The strap on the back tore right off after wearing about 5 times. Horrible quality of construction. On the plus side, leather quality is nice and the styling is great. They just fall apart, unfortunately.

I did an extensive amount of research about these boots and the Frye brand before I settled on this style, the Paige Trapunto. I read reviews from every site that Google would give me. The pictures that came up in my Google Image search made me slightly question my choice, but after watching the video in Zappos, I was 100% sure that this was the exact boot I had been searching for. In my research, I found many reviews that hailed the Frye brand as the finest in boot making. Because I intended to finally splurge and purchase a pair of classic leather (real leather!) boots that I would keep forever, I was willing to spend as much on a pair, I decided that any pair of Fryes would be an excellent choice. I read reviews that complained of an extremely slick sole. One reviewer even claimed that as soon as she slipped into her new boots, she slid down an entire flight of stairs. Another reviewer (who seemed a bit more reasonable) said that using some wax on the sole would fix the problem. I found the sole to be slicker than a normal shoe, but not slick enough to fall down a flight of stairs, that has to be contributed to sheer clumsiness. Concerning the sizing chart: I read many conflicting suggestions for choosing your size. I wear a 9 1/2 in general, in Sperry's I could almost get away with wearing a 8 1/2, in heels I wear a 10, in flats a 9. Obviously, a comfortable size and fit was very important to me, so I decided to order a 9 1/2 and hope for the best (this decision was easy because Zappos has a great return policy just in case). They fit perfect, just snug enough, but not so snug that my feet feel pinched. The design of the boot is easily examined in the photos and video. I liked the Frye Melissa, but wanted something a little more "rugged" leo that they would be more versatile with different outfits, from a shabby chic dress and tights to a pair of skinny jeans, a sweater and vest. There is a large enough opening to allow for skinny jeans, but it seems a bit large when wearing tights, of course, this also depends on the size of your calves. The opening lands at just the top of my calves. I am 5' 9", with a little bit larger calf than what would be considered for modeling. I read that the "slouchy" look is cool about these boots, but I din't find them to be slouchy at all. Maybe not as structured as some boots, but definitely not slouchy. I loved that Zappos offered more colors than I found on any other site and chose the "Redwood" color, which is really not red, but more brown-red. I wanted a color that had something more to it than just dark brown, but I definitely did not want a yellow undertone, and the grey was not the look I was after. I am extremely happy with my purchase. The boots are easier to slip into than many other brands I have tried on, the fit is great, the quality is unsurpassed, and if you're after compliments (be honest, we all need some sort of fellow female validation) then these are a great choice.

Nightmare. I purchase these, wore them about 6 times, and the strap on the back of the left boot popped off. I called ZAPPOS and they were awesome. They exchanged them and sent out a new pair. I should note that I'm a priority member and purchase lots and lots of stuff. I got the new pair and on the first wear I began to suspect that the diameter of the left was wider than the right, they are always lopsided. 4 wears later the leather surrounding the strap in the back tore open, revealing the lining. This product is obviously defective and Frye has been jerking me around regarding a refund... Zappos is awesome but DO NOT BUY THIS BOOT.

: Love, love, love these boots! I wear a size 8 in all my other shoes and boots, so I ordered these in an 8. Walking around the house, my forefoot slid around a bit and my heel would lift so I sent them back for a 7.5. I wear normal weight socks, so if you plan on wearing thick socks, maybe order your normal size. The first few times it was a little tough pulling them on, but they broke in nicely. A tip: for those tight pull-on boots, put a plastic grocery bag on your foot when you pull the boots on and rip it out once your foot is in. The plastic helps them to slide right in until you get the leather broken in enough to not have to struggle. :) As for the circumference of the shaft, I have thinner calves (about 13.5 inches)and really do not like wide, gaping, rainboot look? These boots fit nice enough and the little buckle detail on the back makes a nice silhouette. Not too wide, not too tight. Just perfect!

Love at first sight and very comfortable as well. I ordered a size 9, which is my regular shoe size, and am happy with the fit. I have no trouble getting the boots on and off either. Great investment!

These boots are so beautiful and soft. The first few times, I had trouble getting them on my right foot, which tends to be a little bigger. That was frustrating but now that they are broken in, I'm completely in love with them!

I was very excited when these arrived at my home. They are a really nice pair of boots. Too bad I had to return them, my legs are too short. I'm 5'4". I would recommend them for a taller person, or someone with longer legs.

The leather is nice, high quality and the brown is a dark deep brown. The detailing is lovely. There's a bit of break-in time and these run true to size unlike some of other Frye boots (like Carson). I don't think there are issues with the ankle. The front detailing slims the ankle and the pull-on style has to give a bit of room at the ankle so that you can pull these boots on. The leather outsole is delicate and I recommend getting a rubber sole to cover up the leather if you plan to walk a lot.

I've been hunting for the perfect Frye boots for awhile now. The Paige Trapunto is the perfect boot for me! The others were a little too "western" looking for me or did not fit my calves. I thought the Melissa button had promise, but the top of the calf was a little snug, so I returned them. These, however, are so perfect, I'm glad I didn't settle! They are the perfect blend of casual, sophisticated and can easily dress up or down. I had no problem fitting them over my calves which can sometimes be a problem. The leather is buttery and soft, but the boot is sturdy. Love them!

These are made from beautiful quality leather in a timeless casual style that goes great with my skinny and slim fit jeans. I have medium muscled shapely calves and i can easily stuff my jeans and a thin wool sock through the shaft. I wear a size 8 or 7½, but I decided on the 8 in case the socks did not fit. The calf of the boot, especially around the ankle area is not structured or fitted, hence the slouch moniker. If you are picky about your ankle profile or are looking for smoother look, find yourself an equestrian boot instead. There does not seem to be much in the way or arch support (I am normal arched) but there is enough room to place and insert if needed.

These boots are gorgeous. This is the 7th pair of boots I've ordered from Zappos - and for one reason or another - the styles didn't seem right. This is classic, beautiful and worth every penny of the price. (I've never spent that much money on boots before.) However, because of my high arch, I can't get my foot down into the foot bed to see how they really fit, and sadly will have to return them. Am not sure if all Frye's are this way, or just this particular style. Also like the Celia X stitch, but thinking I may have the same issue with those.

I have been searching a long time for the perfect cognac boot and today UPS delivered it thanks to Zappos lightening fast shipping. This boot is gorgeous. Beautiful leather, I am always a 7.5 and this 7.5 fits perfectly. Beautiful color. Comfy right out of the box. Didn't want to spend this much on boots, but I know Frye will last and the quality of the boot is amazing! Highly recommend to anyone obsessed with cognac boots! Love these boots.

Love these boots! I have larger calves and always have a problem finding boots to fit over them. I decided if these fit properly, the high price would be well worth it. They fit like a glove, even with jeans tucked in! They are gorgeous, the leather is supple and soft, and they were broken in in no time at all! I would recommend these to anyone!

These boots were absolutely beautiful and of good quality; unfortunately, they were too baggy in the ankle and I returned them. I have this problem with boots often as I have slender calves/ankles. If only they came with zippers!

This boot is beautiful! I am a true 6 1/2 and I got a 6, and it is plenty roomy with wool socks - and great with tights too. The smell of their leather is amazing, and as my other Fryes have held up beautifully, I am sure these will as well.

I've had these for a little over a month now and really love them. The leather is very soft and they are very comfortable. They seem to be breaking in very nicely, though I'm a little concerned that they will need to be resoled in the not to distant future.
