I just received these today, and they are exactly what I was expecting. While the leather is a little stiff, it isn't too bad, and I would actually prefer it that way, personally. As you break them in they will be like a pair of raw denim and conform to your leg rather than being a soft leather from the manufacturer. The smell of leather as I opened the box was pretty overpowering. I purchased the black, and they are a very nice black boot with just enough distressing to add some interest. The bottom of the boot looks like it will have enough traction to be stable enough through a slick & Icy Wisconsin winter, which is a must. Which is another reason I chose this boot over the Carmen 14L. They both have similar looks, but the Carmen is Suede, and suede won't hold up well with salt and daily exposure to snow. These will. I love the buckles, very understated but add some interest. These are also very comfortable, and if they are comfortable now, they will be even better in a few months. The most important thing you need to know is that these definitely run large. I normally wear about a 9 and ordered these in a 9 but they were literally slipping right off my foot. I am sizing down to an 8.5, and I think that will be perfect. People who run right between sizes may want to size down a full size. Overall, I love these. I think they are a beautiful, well constructed boot with just enough detail. They will pair well with a lot of different outfits, and I am so excited to wear them!

I returned these. They are not worth the money! These are far inferior to the Frye Carson Buckle boots that I just ordered, yet they charge the same retail price! The painted rubber heel, unlined shaft, and junky looking antique finish should have put these boots in a much cheaper price range. They are quite pricey for junky boots with cheap components!

These are beautiful boots. I wanted grey boots with a medium heel, high enough to wear with work trousers that I normally wear with heels. Although not as dressy as other boots I have for work, these are so wonderful, I am wearing them with everything. They are soft and a beautiful color. They are very comfortable and have a perfect shaft height. I am not even 5'2" so I am always looking for "tall" boots I can wear with skinny jeans that are not too tall for my petite size. These are perfect. They are great with skinny jeans, leggings, dresses and trousers. And they were on sale! Plus, Zappos is amazing. I ordered these on Sunday and received them on Tuesday! I don't know how Zappos does it. Other online retailers just can't compare to your service and fast shipping. I am so pleased!

The soles are oversized and made the boots look ridiculous on my petite 5'1" frame (size 7). No padding or arch support. The main plus is Frye's impeccable craftsmanship and leather quality.

These boots are beautiful. Even my husband who hates the jeans in boots look immediately told me these boots were hot. I have large wide feet - normally a 10.5 normal to wide width. I got a 10 and these feel a little big but I'm keeping them for thicker socks and b/c I'm used to walking in shoes too big for me (almost always have to get an 11). Ladies with larger calves, these actually FIT my calf - albeit tightly. The strap at the top really helps widen it to fit that extra bit of calf muscle (or fat in my case :). Gorgeous, gorgeous.

I bought these on sale for my wife. They slipped on easy and she said the heel is comfortable, not too high. The leather looks rich and smells great. She said she will wear these with a dress, skirt and her skinny jeans. We got her normal size and they fit. Most of all, I think she looks like a hottie and all the guys will be envious that she is with me! Thanks Zappos for the usual ├╝ber fast delivery. Another satisfied customer.

I am usually a 7 in most shoes, but upon reading reviews I decided to order the 6.5 in burnt red. I am so glad I listened to the reviews, the 6.5 fit perfectly! I love them. The leather smells and feels amazing and the boot is stunning. I don't usually like heeled boots because they seem too "dressy" for everyday wear, but this is not the case with these boots! They can easily be dressed up or down. For girls who have high arches (like myself), these boots are going to need some sort of insert for arch support since they are pretty flat.

Frye boots are the best! The leather is supple and soft and the color is beautiful. I have the slate burnished antique color, and it goes with about everything. The heel is a great height that gives a short gal like me at only 5'3" a bit of a lift, but I don't feel like I'm in "heels." The lug sole gives lots of traction, which is honestly better than the leather sole that most Frye boots have. As for the fit - overall it's great. I normally wear a size 7, and these fit well. I can see where people might get a half size smaller than their normal size, but I like to have a bit more room so I can wear thick socks in the winter. I will say that the very top of the shaft was a bit tight the first time I put the boots on, but I plan to stretch them a bit. The rest of the fit is fantastic and I know that these will be my new go-to boot.

Color and style are great! I did order a 1/2 size smaller based on other reviews and fit is perfect. Somewhat wide around the calves, so can't wear with dresses, but will work with jeans. Haven't worn yet, as it's still summer.

Have not had a chance to wear these yet b/c it so hot here this summer. They looked big on my calves, but not too bad with jeans tucked in. Not sure how well they work out with a skirt and I may exchange them. I normally wear a 7 1/2 or 8 and ordered these in an 8. Felt too big.

These boots are very comfortable but do fit a bit larger. The shaft of the boot is soft and has ample room for those who have a larger calf. The color is as shown online and looks great with jeans. I received many compliments on these boots when I wore them. I was able to wear them out for an evening of dancing/socializing and my feet were not sore at all.

Oh, these are just gorgeous boots. They fit my large calves just as easily as the Veronica Slouch, and the leather is soft and lovely. However, the color of the "Dark brown burnished/antiqued" is way darker than the Zappos photo. It's a lovely color, but not at all what I was expecting. I should have probably figured that out from the name of the color, but I've never noticed such a discrepancy with Zappos photos before. Totally bummed. I love them, but I don't want to spend hundreds on boots that aren't what I was shopping for.

I love Frye boots! They last forever and fit so well. I did get them in the cognac like color and I love them. I wear them with everything. The great think about the leather on this is that it is very soft, so you can really get a nice slouch in, or else, you can wear them pulled up. The first time I wore them, I went to a concert afterwards and my feet were not sore, nor any blisters. Definitely worth it!

I received these boots yesterday and I love them! I wear a 7.5 in all shoes except Nike. I ordered 7.5 in these and they fit perfectly. When I put them on, they felt a tiny bit wide and loose towards the heel and ankle so I tightened the bottom buckle one notch and they are perfect! Wearing a thicker sock would work, too. This is my first pair of Frye boots and if anyone is thinking about purchasing a pair, I would highly recommend it. They are so soft and have that nice leather smell. I also read the back story on Frye and how they make their boots...it was pretty interesting. It will make you appreciate them even more! I've had them slightly over 24 hours and have gotten several compliments. Great product, very nice people at Zappos, all around great experience!

Overall I love this boot, the style is great and the quality is outstanding. The small heel extends the leg and creates a super fit. Plus the functional straps allowed me to create the perfect fit for my foot. Luckily around Christmas time I had already tried on a pair of Fryes in a near by store so I knew that the Frye boots run a half size large (normally a 7.5, I wear a 7 in Frye). If you don't know your size in Frye boots, I highly recommend trying on a pair in a store near by before buying online.

These are my favorite boots! I own them in two colors. I like the heel height and the fact that they are easy to pull on! That is not true of all boots! Great with dresses and skirts, leggings and skinny jeans.

These boots are my go to boots. I am 5'3 with a 15 inch calf. Very often boots are too tight in the shaft for my leg, but these are a perfect fit. Initially I ordered an 8, which is my actual size, the toes area was perfect, but the heel was slipping. Zappos then sent me a 7 1/2 to try, free of charge, and that one was tight across the instep, which hurt my bunions, but the heel had less slippage. I was very torn about this, because many reviewers said the boots would stretch and be fine. I even took a ride into NYC to the Frye Flagship Store, so I could talk to the sales experts about this. By the way, if you love Frye, that store should be on your list of places to visit in NYC. But you'll pay more there. So...they more or less agreed with most other reviewers and said they "run big" and to size down. I just wasn't comfortable buying a boot that wasn't a perfect fit, and almost returned both pairs. The sales associate said not to be too concerned with the heel slippage, because the leather would mold to my foot, and the heel would begin to move up and down with my foot. Even though I was skeptical about that, I decided since the boot was less expensive on Zappos than at the Frye store, it was a great deal, and I kept the 8. I put a thin Dr. Scholls in and wear a gym sock. It's been about a month and they are the most comfortable boots I own, no heel slip anymore, it's crazy how that really stops! I love the heel, it's pretty high, but feels like a ballet flat, I can wear these 16 hours with no problem. The tan burnished antique is a beautiful spring/summer color, and the dark brown burnished is gorgeous and looks nothing like the picture on Zappos. Check these boots on the Frye website for more accuracy in appearance. Then buy them on Zappos, because the customer service on Zappos is truly excellent!

These are amazingly gorgeous boots - true to size, the insoles feel like gel filled clouds. No break in time needed. The Slate burnished antique color is pretty true to the photo depiction, maybe a shade grayer/bit cooler toned. It's a good neutral warm/cool/midtoned gray with plenty of variations. Very versatile color that will go with pretty much anything. These will also work for larger calves - and will stretch more over time (which for me is a good thing!).

I love Frye's Vera slouch boots in grey. They are perfect for snowy/icey conditions due to the lug sole. The heel height is great and still very sturdy. The color is very versatile! I got them half a size smaller than my normal size because the toe area is wider than the Taylor pull-ons, for example.

I ordered the Tan VintageTumble Full Grain and was expecting the color that was shown on the Zappos website and what I got was nowhere close to this color. The leather felt cheap, plastic like. The dye job was really bad. The left ankle strap had red markings which the right did not. The right lug sole on the inner side had a crack. I normally wear a size 6 and bought the 6 - it felt 1/2 big in the foot. Maybe a 5.5 would have fit me. The width was just right. The calf was tight and I was barely able to get it all the way up but I know leather (if this is real leather) will stretch with wear. I would have kept this pair and would have tried to stretch the calf area but the crack on the lug sole and the red markings on the left ankle strap just did not make it worth the sale price.

I have the Vera Slouch in black already, and I find I wear it often due to the lug sole (great traction in lousy weather!), the heel height (just enough lift but totally comfortable, wearable), and the generous calf (mine run about 16"!). One thing to know: I bought the black on sale elsewhere, and the leather was not as high-quality as my other Fryes; I bought the burnt red on sale here at Zappos, and the leather is gorgeous! Maybe Frye read the early reviews of the Vera and changed the materials? I don't know, but jump on these while they are still on sale! And the burnt red color is just gorgeous -- a rich reddish brown, stunning. They arrived yesterday, I am wearing them today, and my office mate just ordered a pair!

Love these boots. I own quite a few pair of Frye, and these are now one of my favorites. These fit true to size. One thing I love about the Vera Slouch is the adjustable buckle at the top. I had to let mine out to the last notch so my calves would fit when I have skinny jeans on. I highly recommend these boots!

I absolutely love these! Tough, motorcycle-inspired boots! I love the fact that they're knee high so they're instantly different than the glut of ankle or calf high boots lately. And, there's a decent sized heel, not flat (no mom boot here) and not too high and just right. Best boots ever.

I just received mine and I have to say I love them! I ordered the Burnt Red and the color is beautiful! The fit runs a little big, I usually wear a 6 or 6 1/2 and I ordered a 6. The 6 1/2 would have been too big as I have room for a thick sock in these. Next day delivery! I love Zappos.

Great looking boot from Frye, and well made, I always got compliments! Very good materials. The only downside is that they were uncomfortable and my feet were begging to get out of the boots by the end of the day.
