Very comfortable, very feminine. I am between a 6 1/2 and 7. I went with the 7 as they are a bit more narrow than other Frye shoes I own. Love them!

I've gotten Frye shoes before and was happy, but the fit on this one is not good--narrow across the toes and metatarsals (the part of the foot just before the toes).

These boots are true to size and just a beautiful as in the picture. I ordered a 7 1/2 and they fit perfect, later on I plan on buying these in size 8 to wear with thick winter socks.

Love these boots - did get blisters on my heels the first time I wore them all day, but after that, no problem. The most I would ever spend on shoes, but I have a feeling these will last the longest of any shoes I've had.

These are lovely boots! They offer top notch craftsmanship and style. Fry never disappoints. I suggest sizing down a half size however, my usual 7.5 was too roomy.

These are so cute and feel wonderful. Too bad it rains so much here. I love the color, but I will go with the basic black.

While I can't get past the Forrest Gump look about them, I adore these booties. My foot troubles are numerous and yet, these support me and keep me comfortable all day. The heel isn't too high and the toe doesn't pinch. Adjustability thanks to lacing. Quality shows. I've had Frye boots before, they last a long time and in my mind, are worth the price. Run Forrest, run!

I love these boots! I took a long time to buy these online as I was afraid of sizing. They are true to their size and very comfortable. They look great with whatever I am wearing. I bought the brown and also plan to buy these awesome boots in black.

I LOVE my new boots. They are almost perfect. They fit like slippers yet are sturdy, crafted leather. I wear them all day, constantly up and down in an office. I have two pairs, Cloud (I wear a lot of winter white, and would have preferred Winter White to Cloud) and Butter. They're a little big for a 9, but that's okay because they're comfortable and cool with a regular sock, and they easily fit a boot sock when it's cold. I would have preferred a flat heel, but I hunted and found no one offering leather, this quality, in a flat heel. The heel is cut "in" a little which makes walking easier with the heel height. I wear these to work in an office, so the little bit of heel adds style, which I can use, since I don't like to dress up (except on stage). I'm picky, and the top leather should form more to the arch, in my view, but it seems no shoemakers do that anymore. Despite my complaints, they're the cutest darn boots I ever saw. Put it this way, I often cross my legs boy style, and I never get tired of seeing my feet.

These boots are very comfortable, functional, and look great. I have several different pairs of Frye boots and have been very happy with all of them. This style runs pretty true to size if you are going to wear very heavy socks with them. If not, I would order a 1/2 size smaller than your regular size.

Frye knows something about feet that other shoe manufacturers don't. This is my second pair of Fryes and I am amazed at how comfortable they are. Other reviewers say that these feel larger than true size, but I think the folks at Frye know that those of us who don't have pointy feet (who does?) will need that extra room in the toe, so my advice is buy your usual size. I love these stylish, short lace-ups and plan to wear them like crazy. Thanks Frye!

Out of the box these are comfortable! I hesitated at first due to the price, but it was definitely money well spent. This is my first pair of Fryes and it will not be my last. I got them in dark brown, and I love the color!

Very comfortable right from the box. Runs true to size, great leather, and padding. Seriously one of the best Frye's I've worn! My foot: 9-9.5. Frye's size 9, perfect. Not for a wide foot. Normal to narrow, perfect.

These boots are the best! They are comfortable from the start - they don't need to be broken in. The color is unusual, but goes with just about everything, jeans, black or gray pants, leggings. I highly recommend them.

These boots are so much cuter in person then in pictures. I almost didn't get them. So glad I did. They are a high quality, soft leather. The fit is very true to size, comfortable and stylish. I agree, the sole is slippery, but that is easily remedied. This is my third pair of Frye boots this season. Never had such nice boots or shoes in my life. I will wear these and others for years to come. Well worth the investment.

This is my first pair of good quality boots. I am very happy with them. The sole is a bit slippery at first but it just needs to be scuffed up a bit. The leather also stains easily so I would recommend getting a cleaning product. The leather is very soft and comfortable which helps the shoe to break in very easily.

Love this boot. I have size 11 feet and they fit perfectly. There is definitely space at the end, which made me a little unsure to start with, but then my husband said how small they made my feet look! Comfortable, super stylish and look like they will last forever. Worth the extra bucks for a wardrobe classic.

I got the boots in butter. They're my first pair of Frye boots, but I ogle Frye boots constantly. I love my boots! They make my feet look longer than I'm used to, but overall they're super cute and make me feel cute and stylish.

I love these boots. They were soft and pretty right out of the box. I bought them as a more work-friendly boot in the style of my beloved (and now departed) Doc Martens from the 90s. The turned up toe takes some getting used to, but after a couple days of wearing them I like the vintage look. They look nice with tights and a short dress or sensible work-friendly dress pants and a simple top. Moreover, these things are comfortable. I bought my normal size, and it fits my foot great. I like the extra room in the toes. My toenails tend to get ingrown, and these stay well away! I would only size down if your feet are narrow.

I get compliments every time I wear these. They are very substantial and rich looking so people notice them. Amazingly they are instantly comfortable even with the hefty boot leather. These will last years and just get better with time. They are a true classic; I always look forward to wearing them!

I love these so much! They are so cute and they look great with skirts, and jeans. They run a little big, so I took half a size smaller and they fit perfectly! The leather is also much softer and more supple than my other Fryes so the break in period was basically non existent. The only downside was the sole was a little slippery at first, but with just a little wear it was unnoticeable.
