I just wrote a review for the Veronica Shortie. Here is what I have to say...I have been comparing the two and driving myself nut's trying to decide which one to get. Zappos state's the shaft height is the difference between the two. I called The Frye Company directly and they said that THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE! The name was just changed. SO, if you have been wondering which to get... to go a half inch shorter or taller...debate no more! They are EXACTLY THE SAME in the shaft and the fit! Zappos just has the wrong info. posted. They are so WONDERFUL and AMAZING, I know they will update this! Hope this helps!

Very disappointed in this product. I ordered three pairs that were all defective before deciding to go with a Frye boot that is made in the USA. Heads up, the Veronica Short as well as many of the Frye "fashion" styles are made in Mexico. The quality difference between the domestic and foreign products are night and day, and at this price, simply not acceptable to me. My USA made Frye Engineer 8R boots are amazing though!

Love this boot! 10 fits like a dream on my 9.5 wide feet. Required some breaking in to accommodate the bunion on my right foot. Leather foot liner keeps coming unglued, but other than that I have zero complaints.

These boots are like butter. Absolutely gorgeous leather, in a color that goes with everything (cognac stone antiqued). I ordered 1/2 size up, as others suggested, and they fit perfectly. I'm a big lover of Frye boots, and have found that these are much more comfortable out of the box than some of the other styles. The rounded toe box is a bit wider than the campus and harness styles (great for me, because I've had to have the others stretched by a cobbler to achieve a true fit). The cost was high for me (for a pair of boots), but I tend to use things until they're no longer useable, so, knowing Frye quality, I plan on having these forever. If you're on the fence - go for it! Truly a beautiful, made-to-last boot. And great Zappos service, of course!

I have the "Veronica Shortie" in the slate color and absolutely love them. I'm now interested in trying these. I would like to point out, however--in reference to an earlier review by another reviewer--that there actually is a discernible difference between the "Veronica Shortie" and the "Veronica Short," and that is the sole. The "Veronica Short" is a bit more rugged.

I felt like I was too old to suffer in shoes that weren't really comfortable, but these boots have shown that to be not true. These boots are really terrific looking. They're a lot more feminine and refined than the photo would suggest, and the leather is of very nice quality. I like the height and overall, how they go look with straight jeans or a skirt. With all that said, I had a lot of trouble getting the right fit on these, and they still aren't the most comfortable shoes in my closet -- I love them for how they look, not how they feel. My husband bought me my normal size, 8.5, for Christmas. I almost cried from pain when I tried them on -- they were so short that my heel was rubbing up against the back, and the wider part of my foot was so compressed that my toes lost feeling in about a minute. (I have, on occasion, chosen a W over the M, so the width issue wasn't as much of a surprise as the length.) We called Zappos and in a day (yes, Zappos is incredible!!), a 9 had arrived. They felt better, although still a bit narrow. I kept wearing them (when I didn't have too much walking to do), and they have stretched out. (My last pair of Fryes ultimately conformed to my foot, and I suspect these will too. The leather is beautiful, but not really supple.) They feel better as the day goes on but never amazing. It'd be great if Frye made these in a wide.

Best boots ever. I typically wear a 9.5 or 10 in normal shoes. I got the 9.5 and it fits perfectly. I also have the tall Veronicas in brown, and they fit the same. I wish they didn't cost so much, but my old feet can't wear cheap shoes anymore.

These boots are great! I ordered the burnt red vintage in an 8.5 which is my size in pretty much anything. I had to return them for an 8, which I haven't received yet. The 8.5 left room for my heel to slide up in the back and I knew it would cause blisters. The foot part is a very solid make and the leather on the upper part of the boot is very soft and smooth. Great boot, just go a half size down!

What the? I normally take a 9.5. I ordered a 10 in my treat-for-myself Fryes, and I could not get my feet into them. Not the insteps, not the heels. Neither foot! They were beyond tight. It looks like back to Ariats for me...

I am in love with my Veronica Short boots! I'm wearing them as I write this review! I've had them for 3 or 4 weeks now, and I've worn them several times. With the vintage look, they are more on the casual side, but I love that I can wear them with jeans and a sweatshirt, or nice jeans and a sweater to go out on a Saturday night. I love the medium height of the boot, and that the top is wide enough to accommodate thicker jeans, but not too wide to look awkward. They are comfortable too! I have absolutely nothing but positive things to say about these. They are a must have!

They really are quality boots. I was surprised by how tight they were in the toe - I am ordered an 8 1/2 (which is my usual size) and found my the end of the shoe to be a bit cramped, yet the heel was loose. This led to blistering in the first week I wore them, but my foot has adjusted to them and I now find them to be very comfortable. Real, genuine leather, a truly solid shoe! But an investment...expensive!

Beautiful boots but as stated in a review posted just yesterday (one day too late!) and they do in fact run small. I purchased a size 9 and could not get either foot in the boot, so despite the fact that I have never had to buy wides in any other brand. Sadly they do not offer wides, so I will never know if they are as great as other posters say!

These are so cute! They run smaller than other Frye Styles, I ended up with a 9 and in Frye Janes and two other pair of Frye I wear an 8. They are really comfy and nice to just throw on when you don't feel like wearing tall boots. I can wear them all day!

I am so happy with these boots and with Zappos customer service. These are my first Fryes. I'd been eying them for a while but was hesitant to spend the money. When the exact boots I wanted (dark brown vintage) went on sale the week before my birthday, I jumped on them. I wear 8/8.5. Ordered the 8 because I read they ran large and stretch. I received them the day before my birthday, and they were beautiful, but unfortunately they were too tight. I wanted to make sure I got an even exchange so I wouldn't lose the sale price when I ordered up a size, so I called Zappos customer service and talked to the nicest rep (while on hold I listened to the joke of the day -- I don't remember what it was, but the fact they have a joke of the day on the customer service line while you wait made me smile). It was after 5, so she said she couldn't get the 8.5s to me by the next day for my birthday, but I'd get them the day after, which I did (plus free shipping, free exchanges, how can you beat that?). The 8.5s fit, but they did give me blisters the first week, so I was nervous they wouldn't work. However, after I broke them in that week they fit great and I wore them almost every day after that, with skinny jeans and skirts and dresses now that it's spring. To top it off, I got a handwritten birthday card in the mail from the customer service rep at Zappos saying she hoped my new boots worked out! The whole experience proved to me how awesome Zappos is and will make me a loyal customer -- not only are these my new favorite boots, but I got them for a great price and with excellent customer service.

I absolutely love all the Frye boots. They are the most comfortable boots around. They are pricey but well worth it. I have very sore feet all the time from many years of wearing bad shoes and boots and these are the only ones I can tolerate. I particularly love the Veronica ones.

These boots! The leather is so soft and feels like you have worn them for a lifetime. My heel slipped for the first few hours of wearing them around the house, but the inside of the boot soon molded to my feet. They are so comfortable! I am a teacher and can wear these all day and night. Dress em up (perfect height for cute dresses and leggings) or dress em down (the black ones are great with black or dark wash skinny jeans). These are a shorter boot, hitting me (5'4") below the calf. The shaft is wide enough so that it is easy to pull my wide foot in. I have a wide foot and my normal size 9 fits perfectly. I agonized for literally months before buying them, as they are quite a bit more than I usually spend on shoes. They are worth every penny and are so durable and versatile that I am sure I will be wearing them for years. Do it. You won't regret it.

This boot looks great on - loved it, but when I walk, the heel grabs my socks and drags them down into the shoe. So have to return.

These boots are worth every penny! They are absolutely perfect and obviously high quality right out of the box. I sized up a half a size and it allows enough room for socks. Love!

Ok, decided I wanted a pair of Frye Veronica boots, first order was for the Veronica Shorties in the dark brown stone wash. Frye boots are notoriously hard to break in, so I wanted something a little roughed up. I am a 7 to a 7.5, so I ordered the 7.5, figuring winter coming and thick socks and all. Boots arrived, and boy was I disappointed in the way they looked and felt. The leather was like smooth, dusty old vinyl, the color a dull waxy grayish tinged brown. They certainly did not look like they cost three hundred dollars, and nowhere near as nice as the photo. Zappos has the most wonderful customer service and return policy, so I looked over the Veronica Shortie and Short choices again, and figured I would try the above pictured Veronica SHORT (there is a difference, however small) in a different finish - the dark brown stone antique. NOW I am happy! The leather is richer and more supple, not a smooth and fake looking, and while still stone washed, it retains that glow that new leather has, and the boots are a warmer toned brown color. The shaft is higher, the heel is higher, and over all it is a heavier more substantial boot, and has the look of a boot in it's price category. I also sized up to an 8. Put them on the minute they arrived, and they are already comfy, with a little extra room to stretch and leave some space for thicker socks. Thanks Zappos, as always, you guys are wonderful - I will be a customer for life!

I love these boots! When I opened the box I squealed - they're so beautiful. The leather is so soft and true to the Frye name. A very casual boot is somehow dressier based on how well made and beautiful it is. Super comfortable, but I ordered a half size up. Obviously they look great with jeans, but they work great with tights and skirts. I will wear these for years and years, a given with Frye, and love them more and more with each wearing.

Where do I even start? Took me one evening of wearing these to break them ins I haven't taken them off since! Never been in love with a pair of boots until now. Perfect with a dress, shorts, a legging with a short skirt. So cute and I get complemented almost every time I wear them (which is a LOT!)

I wear a solid 7 1/2 and this was about a half size too small. If I kept it, I would have to wear the super thin socks and since it is a winter/fall boot. I'll be getting the 8.

Well made boot with beautiful leather, but it was too big and very heavy, especially in the heel. I went for a size 8, usually wear a 7.5-8, so I could wear a heavier sock. Probably could have worn a heavier sock with the 7.5. Thank you Zappos once again for your quick service and painless returns!
