These boots are the kick-a Best. They are made with quality leather,and strong studded and buckle detail. These boots aren't cheap, and nothing on them feels cheap either. With care, they will last a long time. I went down 1/2 size as per other reviews. Let me tell you, it is WORK getting my feet into these babies. I have high arches,and without the use of a shoe horn, it takes about 10 minutes to wedge my feet into these boots...by then, my toes are crammed against the end of my socks. Once in the boots, they fit PERFECTLY. Taking them off is easy. My feet just slide out...so go figure! They have a rugged coolness that can off-set a more girly outfit. The warm cognac tone goes with everything. Get 'em. You won't be disappointed. But, you may need to start dressing for your day about 15 minutes earlier than you expect!

I love these boots. I own several frye boots and they all feel great. These took a few days to break in, unlike my other Fryes, but now they are fine. I love the studs and get tons of compliments.

I ordered these in both black and tan but I kept the tan. It is the perfect neutral color for what I wanted. These are my fifth pair of Frye boots! I love their comfort and can wear them all day long. I have had back surgery so I have to have good support.

I just bought these in the gray. First off, I agree with the others who say it is not a true gray. It is a warmer color, more in the light brown, taupe family. In some lights they look grayish but I can really tell when I place something gray next to them that in fact, they are not gray. I still like them though. The color is still a soft neutral so I'm fine with it. They are a beautiful boot and the quality of the leather is top-notch. I love the height of the shaft (that sounds dirty doesn't it?). Everyone is wearing tall boots these days and I think a shorter boot like this is more unique. I am not a skinny woman (size 12) and they work well with my body-type. They look great with skinny jeans, leggings or wider legged jeans that are rolled up. Here's the odd thing, they feel a little different on each foot. I don't know if this is because they are hand-made or because my feet are not exactly the same size, although I have never experienced this with other shoes. One boot fits perfectly while the other is more snug. I think it will loosen up with wear though. I did order a half-size down per other reviews and that was the right choice. Another thing I love about these boots is the 1" heel. It's just the right amount while still being comfortable. I live in a city and walk everywhere so they have to be comfortable. I started out the with the Harness boot 12 R which is a higher heel. I found them very uncomfortable and heavy. These boots are not too heavy. The other little glitch is that the dye on the toe portion of the boots is not exactly the same. It is darker on one boot. I don't know if this is just me being ultra-picky or if it is noticeable. I asked a friend and she it's not noticeable and that dye on boots is often like that. Bottom line - I'm keeping them. At this price, I hope they last for many years - like ten at least! I'll keep you posted.

I've wanted a pair of Frye boots for years now and finally convinced my fiance that they were worth the money and they were all I wanted for Christmas. I bought these in the grey, which honestly isn't really that grey, but instead it's more of a tan color. But I have not been disappointed which means a lot considering I've had about 5 years of anticipation from wanting to own a pair of Frye boots. I say, if you're hesitant because of the price, go for it. It's okay to indulge in the finer things of life every once and awhile. And I'm serious, these boots are amazing. They do seem to run about a half size larger, but I ordered my normal size and they fit pretty well with a nice pair of thick socks.

Love this boot! This is how boots used to be made to last a long time! I wear a 9 to 9.5 narrow and had to size a full size down. I tried the 9 and there was too much room, even with a thicker sock. The 8.5 fit great with a trouser sock and I still have room to wiggle my toes. No blisters! Great boot and they go with so many things!

Just my 2 cents. I had to return these boots for a 1/2 size larger. Thank Heavens Zappos is sooo cool about returns as I had switched from Cole Haan sandals that were NOT comfy [nor did they wear well after 8 wears] for a tropical holiday in October to boots for the winter in LA in November. Yes, it does get chilly here. I love Cole Haan...what happened to the air cushion though? Oh well... sniff..I loved those sandals: I spent 2 hours looking for them, too. :-) Anyway, I bumped my order up $200 bucks for these boots but well worth it. These boots will last forever. I love Zappos. Love, love, love. How can you not? They are sooo much fun to talk to, so helpful, and I love their marketing. They even let you know something is back in stock..i love that. I wish I had some one to remind me all the time about other things. :-) Now I must go and look around and get OVER the fact that they don't sell JUST SHOES. Love my boots. Thank you, Zappos. YOU ROCK THE HOUSE DOWN all away around!! Hugs. Karen in LA

Brands I'd also recommend: BORN, usually Cole Haan, Tevas, Danskos, FitFlop

These boots are amazing. I have the Burnt Red Soft Vintage color and they are stunning. Frye, as usual, for me, takes a bit to break in, mainly because I wear mostly tennis shoes, and am not used to wearing real footwear, but Frye is always worth the break in period. Once broken in, Frye will only love you back! You can do anything to Frye boots, and it won't hurt them a bit. Puddles, motorcycle riding, scuffing, nothin' can hurt them. Tough and beautiful perfection. You won't be sorry, and these are worth every penny.

Very cool boots! First time I ordered a different pair of Frye boots...not as comfortable and tight in the the toe box. These fit perfect! I usually wear a size 8 to 8 1/2. The 8 fit and I can wiggle my toes, very important! The distressed leather is fun and will continue to distress as these are worn. My heel does slip a little, but Frye says that should go away. A heads up to Zappos customer service! My boots arrived the next day like you said. Just order by the time limit PST.

I obsessed over these boots for months, but had a hard time forking over the money for them. I ordered a few other boots through Zappos and had to return them all (thanks for your awesome return policy Zappos!!!) I finally decided to just bite the bullet and get these and I'm so glad I did. They are a tad big...(I am normally a 9 or 9 & 1/2 and I went with the 9 here), but with a slim cushion insert or thicker socks they are fine. After a short break in period, they became really comfortable and every time I wear them I get "ooos" and "ahhhs." They are definitely worth the money.

They are very shiny. I thought they would have more of an aged-down look, but they weren't exactly what I expected. Beautiful like all Frye boots, but not what I am looking for.

I've never owned a pair of Fryes before, but after reading all the glowing reviews of the brand I decided to splurge on this cute pair of boots. I had been on a months-long search for the perfect pair of brown leather boots, so you can imagine my excitement when they finally arrived. The appearance is pretty much exactly like the picture. The quality, however, was mildly disappointing to me and I wonder if I got boots from two different batches, as the left one seems better made than the right. I mean, they're well-made and will clearly last a long time, but I have a few complaints about the details. 1. One boot is slightly darker than the other. 2. On the right boot's strap, the light colored lining was wider than dark leather on the outside so it showed and looked sloppily made. It was pretty easy for me to trim off the excess lining, but for the price I shouldn't have to. 3. All of the studs on the left boot are neatly molded into a shape like the rivets on jeans, while many of the studs on the right boot are only lightly molded and more smooth in appearance as though someone were applying them in a hurry. 4. The Frye logo is nicely embossed in the left boot so it is clear and visible. In the right boot, it's only lightly embossed, so the boundaries are fuzzy and you can only really make out half the logo. I debated sending them back at this point, but I convinced myself that all these flaws were the result of the boots being individually handmade and not really that noticeable. My other minor complaint is about the fit. When I first put them on, they were so comfortable that I didn't realize that they were too big. I always wear a 7.5 and they seemed to fit pretty well. However, after walking around in them for a few days (making them unreturnable) I realized that I constantly felt as if I might accidentally step right out of them. I wish I had at least tried a pair a half-size down. It being too late to return them however, I added insoles and the problem is solved. So, overall, I would say that I'm fairly happy with these. They're comfortable, they look great and I've gotten a lot of compliments on them. However, they run big and quality seems inconsistent.

These boots are super cute and comfy. I would definitely keep them except for the color. They are the color that shows up on the screen, taupe not the Gray that it says. I ordered them based on a review that says they are truly grey but they are not. If you like the taupe color you will love these boots!

Very cute and comfortable boot, but what they are calling gray is more of a weird beigey color. I hate beige, so unfortunately I'll have to return them. I'm usually a 6.5 but these were slipping on my heel a bit as I walked, so I'd try a 6 next time.

I love these boots but I had a hard time getting the right size. I usually order a half size up in boots to make room for socks and my big calves, but I ended up with a half size down. Just warnin' ya!

This is the greatest pair of boots ever! Badass and beauteous, wearing them makes me feel like a million bucks. They fit well out of the box, only requiring minimal breaking-in. I have a wide foot and usually wear a size 8; the size 8 was perfect with normal (not too thick, not as thin as tights) socks, and the toe box (usually a problem area for me) is nice and spacious. I walk about 3 miles a day on various parts of my commute, and these are holding up really well and feeling much more comfortable than I expected. They are pricey, yes, but you get what you pay for: a well-made, comfortable, beautiful pair of shoes that will last for years. I also own a pair of Veronica slouches and find that these fit the shape of my foot better (less pinchy in the toe area). The other thing I really like is that the Jenna is lined with pale tan leather, so unlike the Veronica, there is no color transfer from the boot to my socks. Would I buy another pair of these? Definitely.

Love them! The description says gray, and they are gray - the picture looked tan. Glad they're gray! My first pair of Frye's. Very hard to choose your 1st pair when you love about 10 different styles. These slide right on as the upper is just soft enough to give, but not to slouchy. I did order a half size smaller (7 1/2 instead of 8's that I normally wear). Read the other reviews, and am happy with the 7 1/2. Seem a little tight across the toe box but since it's leather I'm sure they're going to loosen (not worried). They don't hurt, just a little tight. Very pleased. Wearing with leggings, pencil jeans, wide legs, skirts, and some dresses. Love them.

These boots are to die for. First of all they are super soft. I ordered the red leather and it's beautiful! They are not your regular red color but more of a blood red which is a rich deep color. The craftsmanship is excellent. The foot bed is comfy. The toe box has enough room. It does take a bit to get them on because of the ankle part of the boot are a bit narrow for me. You can always unbuckle the straps that go across the boot and it makes it a bit easier I think. They will eventually stretch out. I also put these to the test. I live in NYC and wanted to wear them today because the weather is now becoming a bit brisk. When I left my home and walked it started to rain in buckets and I said to myself ??Oh crap now my boots will get soaked through and thru - but to my surprise my feet stayed dry and the boot was still intact as well. What a pleasant surprise. These boots are keepers.

I was so sad to have to return these boots. I normally wear a size 9.5, so I ordered a 9.5, but I likely needed an 8.5. I am tall and lean and the shaft of this boot is so wide it looked ridiculous on me. Other than the size and the width of the shaft, they were comfortable and super cute!

I own lots of Fryes and I love them all. These are special though - Frye is focusing on trends and expanding their classic lines. The foot bed is soft and comfy, the leather is soft and buttery and the studs are bang on trend. So comfortable and stylish. Love them. All my Fryes are 8 and these were no different.
