This is a beautiful eye-catching boot. I had my eyes on it for a long time before I decided to make the purchase. These boots are well-made. I love the burnished red. They are way too big. I have two other styles of Frye boots, the Phillips and the Melissa. I wear a 7.5, have high arches, narrow heel and a slightly wide foot. My other Fryes fit to perfection the moment I put them on. These were also 7.5, but huge. Also they are wide in the ankle, making them look unflattering on my legs. I have narrow ankles, and I am probably better off purchasing Fryes that zip. These are pull-ons. Frye makes amazing boots. I wear them every day.

Brands I'd also recommend: Clarke's, Gentle Souls, New Balance, Teva, Ecco, Dansko, Helle Comfort

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 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.

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

I love these boots and get compliments on them all the time. My only complaints would be that they are a little tight in the toe box compared to my other pair of Fryes and some of the finish on the leather around the toe and heel has started cracking off. The leather is distressed so it's not very noticeable, but I'm a little disappointed at the quality of the leather. For the price I thought the finish would last more than a few months.

I stalked these boots for months, but the price tag always scared me away. After looking at them again online for the millionth time, I decided to pull the trigger and I'm glad I did, although there are some negatives to this boot. I'll start with the pros: 1.) They are beyond awesome and hot to look at (I got the chocolate glazed vintage)...I get compliments every time I wear them from women and men. 2.) They make me feel like a bad-ass...and who doesn't like that? 3.) My name is Jenna, so these had to be mine. Cons: 1.) They're not uncomfortable, but at the same time, they're not comfortable. I will say that I have a lot of problems with my feet and am subject to pain. The beds are hard. With a cushioned insert it's better. 2.) I slip in these boots all the time. The bottom soles are so smooth, no matter how much I rough them up, they slide on smooth floor surfaces and on any surface with slight sand or gravel. If they had a toothed rubber sole or any sort of a rougher tooth, they'd be better and much safer. 3.) They are way too expensive to have the problems I just listed and that is disappointing. I do love these boots, I just wish I could wear them more. The slipping thing is my main concern.

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.

Lovely boot, nice workmanship, but with a high arch could not get my foot inside without a tremendous struggle, so disappointed to have to return them with their great stylishness.

Love this boot - but so hard to get on. The size was right, the look was amazing but I don't want to fight and take 10 minutes to get my foot into it!

These shoes are beautiful but they are very hard to put on, I had to return because I couldn't get my foot in. They also are very heavy, probably weigh a few pounds. But I love Zappos, they are so easy for returns.

These would be fantastic boots if they actually looked like the picture. On the black boot, the studs are not gold/brassy like in the picture, they are kind of bluh bronze. The boot itself is cute. I ordered a half-size down from what I usually wear. It felt snug, but I felt that it would have stretched over time. Nice construction and quality.
