By far, my favorite Fryes. I have the Engineer and the Melissa Trapunto, which I love to death. I got these when I was in Soho last week and I am amazed at how much more I could love a boot. These are as comfy as Uggs, but with style. They are so comfortable...the sole is soft, not squishy, and the leather is like butter. I can not recommend these enough. If you only get one pair of boots, these would be them as you can dress them up or down. FYI, I wear 9 in most shoes but I get a 9.5 in Fryes to account for the Smartwool socks I wear and for foot swell. There doesn't seem to be any noticeable arch support but I have high arches and my feet never ache in these.

I couldn't wait for my boots to arrive after I ordered. When I opened the box, they looked better than they did online.... until I put them on. It was a struggle to get my foot into the boot. Once I did, my foot was swimming in them! I wear an 8.5 and all the reviews at the time said they were true to size. No way! I ended up wearing them, with heavier socks, and am now stuck will them. I will never wear these again.

Oh my goodness, finally a pair of Fryes that are comfortable out of the box! I have long wanted to love Fryes, but blister after blister, I kept buying boots I just would never wear. I put these on and holy cow, that has changed forever. The footbed has a great cushion to it that makes these almost feel like sneakers. Nothing's tight or pinching, and it fits true to size (I wear a US 11). The boots are super flattering, leaving about an inch of space around my calves (making my knee socks look extra adorable), easy to pull on and they're a great neutral color that'll go with everything. I am going to wear these everywhere.

Love them. Have them in light beige. I have the Celia over the knee in blue and I love them too. They have worn well over two years so I bought these. I am 5'11" and have size 11 feet. I have pretty skinny calves and ankles, so finding boots that are a pull on that are flat and that don't gape and slouch is hard. The blue Celia Frye's I have must be tied under the knee or they fall down. These don't. Pros: Pretty easy to pull on for the style. Thick leather that wears well and for a pull on boot doesn't slouch very much, almost doesn't at all. Awesome quality. Good tread. Exactly as expected. Would buy again. Cons: (only minor) as my other Fryes did, they bothered my feet the first few wears. I think with thicker leather this is to be expected. Once you break them in, you're golden. They are a bit big around my ankles, but probably necessary to get them on. The pull tabs are not made for pulling them on. When I received them one was completely ripped off...clearly the buyer who had their hands on them before me broke it and it was missed by the Zappos team. In all fairness to Zappos I never reported it or returned them. I had a hard time getting these in my size and this color so I paid the local shoe guy $4 to fix it. But I never pull them on by the tabs...it would rip them out. They kind of make my feet look big, but then again they are!

I waited for months for these to come back in stock, and love them! They are incredibly soft and comfortable. I wear an 8, occasionally still 7½, and I went with the 7½ in these. I wore them out of the box on New Year's Eve and they were comfortable all night.

It's a Frye, so beautiful leather and style, but unlike other Frye boots that I've had to send back (so sad!) these actually comfortably fit my "athletic" calves. Yay! I went with my normal size 8 and the fit is pretty good; a tad bit tight in the toes and a little loose in the heel, but I think with some good socks and a bit of wear/stretching the fit will be fine. The gray color is gorgeous. Thanks, Zappos, for letting me send back all the other pairs of Fryes that had beauty but not the right fit for me.

Ordering from Zappos was a great experience! I can't believe how fast I got my boots! I have been looking at Frye boots for awhile now, and finally decided on the Celia X Stitch because they looked more comfortable. I received them today, and I love them. I ordered the Olive and they are the perfect color to go with anything! They are very comfortable as well! They are so soft and the leather is beautiful. I ordered my regular size 8.5 and they fit perfect. I will be wearing these boots all winter!

I love these boots! So many compliments, and the color goes with everything! Sizing was perfect for me. A little tight going on the first time, but leather stretches just enough. Great buy!

Yummy! Comfortable and made from buttery soft leather. The gray is a beautiful neutral color that will go with a lot different colors this fall. I did think they were a bit long. I usually wear a 7.5, and that's what I ordered. I don't think I could have worn the 7, but I don't mind a bit of extra room in the toes. Definitely would recommend to friends!

I just got these boots in the mail today and I absolutely love them! I have muscular calfs and have a hard time finding cute boots that fit. I got these boots in brown; and I am so happy with the boots that I will get them in grey. The shipping time with Zappos was also awesome!

I was looking for casual yet practical boots for the winter and have always wanted Frye boots. These are perfect! They have traction on the bottom and the leather is beautiful. It is soft and buttery. I have many tall black boots and the gray is a nice addition. I am a 7½ and the 7½ fits perfectly. I can even wear thicker socks with the boots. I cannot wait until it gets a little colder to wear them with my skinny jeans!

I bought these for my teenage daughter. She has always worn Uggs, but wanted something different - she is size 8 and the 8 fits her foot perfectly. A beautiful and high quality leather boot.

The boots are beautiful, and the color is nice. However, I have a skinny ankle and an athletic calf so they bunch at my ankle and are too snug on my calf. I can only wear them with leggings, and not over jeans. I had to return them. They were also a bit narrow and I am an 8.5 M normally.

These boots were LOVELY! I ordered the grey and I loved them. Unfortunately, they are very narrow so I had to return them for another style. I was impressed that the shaft fit my wide calf which is rare with taller boots. I am bummed these didn't work out but Zappos exchanged them with no problems. I must say this was one of the best online shopping experiences ever. :-)

The boots are gorgeous. I love the color and it would match with anything. Unfortunately, my high instep is not allowing me to actually try on the boots. I can't get my foot into the boot. If you don't have a high instep, then get these boots. So cute!

The color and fit of the boot are perfect. However, I have a fairly high instep and it took a lot of side-to-side, up and down, to get my foot past the heel portion of the boot. Once I did, the length and width were perfect for my foot. However, I believe that with the amount of abuse the leather was sustaining from my attempts to cajole my heel down into the foot bed would cause obvious wear and tear at the point where the soft leather meets the stiff heel. Unfortunately I am returning them.

I've had several pairs of Frye boots. All have eventually ended up on eBay or in a consignment shop. These are the boots I want to keep and wear all the time. Comfortable right out of the box. Enough traction on the sole to keep me stable when the walkways gets icy. The sole, however, is not a big lug sole so I'm not clomping around when I wear them indoors. A little bit of slouch suits my casual style. Love them! I wear a 7.5 or 8 and 7.5 works for me in this boot. I am an obsessive reader of customer reviews but rarely write them because I've become superstitious! It seems like the minute I write a positive review something goes wrong. The shoe becomes uncomfortable overnight or falls apart. So, oh, Goddess of Irony, please stop messing with me and allow me to tell everyone what great boots these are.

I had my eyes on these at least a year before I finally purchased them. So glad I did! I traipsed around istanbul for an entire week with only my boots for footwear and my feet were very happy. I usually wear a 10.5 but ordered the 10 which worked great. I have fairly thin calves and these leave enough room for jeans and work great for skirts too.

These boots are phenomenal! They fit like they were custom made to my feet. That's really saying something considering I wear a size 11 and have a wider than average foot and am also cursed with high arches and a corresponding high instep. I wish most shoe manufactures would wake up to the fact that as people get bigger, their feet become larger as well. These boots don't have a lot of cushioning, but that shouldn't be much of an issue due to the low heel. They are fairly comfortable, right out of the box and I suspect they will become even more so after a few wearings. The quality is immediately evident. When I took them out of the box my husband looked at them and said: "Those are some expensive boots!"

I love these boots. I got the gray and they are very nice. I have tried other Fryes which either have little cushioning or are too narrow. These have a bit of cushioning and if anything are too big on my feet. I am a size 11 and Frye does not make an 10½ so 11 it is. There is a bit of heel slippage, but very little compared to other Frye boots and this may be because the 11 is a bit big on me though thick socks may solve this issue. I am quite tall so like flat boots. My feet are on the wider side and these fit comfortably.

Love these. I tried the frye Melissa button and Paige tall riding before these. The Paige were huge on me and the Melissa button did not come up on news high as I would have liked. They also had a bit much cowboy flair for me. I purchased my shoe size in 7, my usual, and they fit perfect. My calfs measure 13-13.5 and these fit loose without being sloppy. The gray is great. Gray and brown tones.

These are gorgeous boots. I was hesitant about buying these boot for two reasons, one was the price and the other was the height of the shaft. I am only 5' tall and from reading other reviews, I was afraid that the boots were going to go over the knee. Let me tell you, they do not. My legs are short, since I am only 5' tall and the boots come up about 1" below the knee. They are very comfortable and the leather is beautiful, soft and great quality. I got the olive color which is very neutral and will go with pretty much everything.
