I absolutely LOVE these boots. Got them in Cognac and they are gorgeous!! I have really muscular calves - these still fit over jeans (perfectly snug) and are a great contrast in color. I wear them with skirts and dresses often, too. There was something that rubbed the side of my foot wrong (in one boot) at first and I didn't think it would go away, but I guess it has settled because I don't feel it anymore. I'd buy these boots in every color if I had the money!

I was a little hesitant buying these boots because of the price, but boy am i glad I did! They are by far the most comfortable pair I own, not to mention they look great on!

Wow, these boots are GORGEOUS. The leather is supple and smooth that smells incredible. The style of the boot is rugged enough yet with a classy twist that makes every outfit (jeans, skirt, dress) so cute and very hip. I LOVE these. I have wanted a pair of Frye boots for a very long time and recently were given these as a gift. Wow. Yes, they are expensive but they are very comfortable, super sturdy, and will go with everything! I will wear these until they fall apart which I'm guessing will not be for a very long time! I wore them right out of the box as soon as they came in the mail without any problems. No break-in period at all. I have been getting lots of compliments on them as well. The heel height is perfect. I'm 5'8 and hate high heels but these are enough height so I don't tower over people and look great with bootcut jeans.

I debated over these boots until I saw them in person and they are far better looking in person. The leather is delicious and slightly worn looking, these are not as tall as the Melissa and Veronica boots, but they are super comfortable. I tried on the 10 in the store and decided to order the 11 from Zappos. The 10 was narrow on me at the mid /fore foot area and once I tried on the 11 I knew there was no need to keep the 10's and try to break them in...no break in period needed for these. I would love to get them in another color when I can! They do have a cowboy look to them, but I think they can be worn with leggings, skinny jeans, skirts and dresses. Did I mention the leather is soft and smells delicious? This is my 4th pair of Frye's and the most comfortable yet.

Worth the price. The Carsons' simple cowboy boot design is subtle enough to pull off in the urban northeast far, far away from cowboy country. I get heaps of compliments. But if this is your first pair of Fryes, give 'em time. They'll feel stiff and tight for the first few days but eventually they'll custom mold to your tootsies and just get better with age. Also be careful of how slippery they are at first. You can buy some non-slip product or just walk around on rough pavement. After six months, the heels on my Carsons are frayed but the scuffs on the leather uppers aren't anything a little saddle soap won't smooth out.

Love, love, love these. I got them for Christmas and have been wearing them a few times per week since then. Right out of the box, they were nearly impossible to put on, but they stretched quickly. Took about a week of daily wear to break them in, but now they are as comfortable as my Keen boots. Gorgeous boot, great with jeans, skirts or dresses. Very pleased with the purchase.

Beautiful boot but it hurt right away on the sides even though it felt like the right size (1/2 size smaller than normal).

Very happy with my stylish Frye Carson Tab Tall boots! They are high-quality and so comfortable. My only issue had to do with the size, as I ended up with a 7 1/2 even though I usually wear an 8 or 8 1/2.

Agree this boot is much better in person. Bought the gray color and it is lovely. Ordered my standard 7.5 (for all Frye's) and it fit TTS. Easy to get on and off. Also, boot is made in Mexico (not China). I have read other reviews where this is a good fact for customers to know. Great addition to my collection!

These boots are not only beautiful, but comfortable as well. If you're looking for a stylish pair of tall black boots, I would highly recommend the Carson Tab! These boots are a half size smaller than I usually wear, but I've found that true of all Frye boots.

Gorgeous boots, but I sadly need to return because they do not fit over my jeans. I have large calves, so a lot of boots are hit or miss for me. These came on easily with just knee socks, but with jeans it just wasn't going to work out for me. I ordered the charcoal and they are a little darker than the picture. They actually look better than the picture, in my opinion. Ordered these Wednesday evening and they were on my front step after work on Thursday...as always, super fast shipping with Zappos.

The picture does not do this boot justice! They are beautiful! I have smaller, athletic legs and it has been difficult for me to find a boot that does not sag at the ankle. These boots have a nice fit, no sagging and are very comfortable. I would suggest ordering a half size down. I wear a 7.5 but ordered these in a 7 and they fit perfectly. One side note, I was excited to buy and American made crafted product but when I received my boots, right on the side of the box states "Made in Mexico". A little disappointing but I am unable to part with the boots! They go with everything! You will not be disappointed. I see this as an investment as they are made to last.

Love these boots! Got them in charcoal and they're beautiful. They do run a half size large. They're not too roomy in the shaft, but I can still easily get them over skinny jeans. No trouble at all getting them on or off.

Great color! These shoes are comfortable. I have a hard time finding boots that fit my muscular calves. These fit but I also used some leather stretching spray to help it fit better. I also have wide feet so I bought them a half size larger to fit my feet. If you have narrow feet, you should stick to your true size.

Really nice boots, but definitely run big. I wear a 10/10.5/41 in shoes and the 10 in these is too big. Order a 1/2 size down.

Great boot. I'm about a size 8-8.5. I got the size 8 because the boot will stretch slightly over time. Perfect fit so far and will be even better as I wear them and conform to my foot. Hope this helps.

I love these boots! I bought the Carson Pull On boot last year in black and decided that his fall I had to have a brown pair. Initially I was disappointed because the Carson Pull On wasn't around anymore, but decided to order these (hoping they would be the same) - well they turned out to be better! The leather is somewhat distressed making them nice and soft. They were initially a bit tight around my athletic calves, but stretched out perfectly after a wear or two. Last year I wore my Carsons constantly to walk all over New York City and they were comfortable, sturdy, and stylish with skirts and pants. These boots have the same footbed (which runs a little large) so I order my usual size but wear them with a thick pair of socks (for extra warmth and comfort). They are definitely worth the money!

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Same sleek look you get in the Melissa Button boot, but just a tad shorter and so much more comfortable. I'm a true 7.5, ordered an 8, and it fits perfectly. Doesn't rub on my heels, but doesn't pinch my toes either. These boots are definitely worth the cost.

These boots are great. sizing was a problem. sent first pair back because stitching around the heel was abnormal.. got a half size bigger on the second pair. I do love them, they have a bit more of a western look then I thought but that's ok. nice color and very soft leather.

I love Frye Carson shoes and boots. I have multi pairs of the lace-ups. They feel like heaven on your feet. The problem with these boots is that they're pretty style-less. The calf is pretty shapeless and they look like galoshes. I was hoping to be able to use them with skirts as well as over pants, but they just didn't look good with either. I just couldn't justify keeping them.

Has anyone had a problem with these boots bothering the side of your heel? I ordered them and wore them around the house several times and they rubbed that part of my foot. I can't tell if that will get better over time?

I ordered these boots in Charcoal, size 8. I usually wear 7.5, but 8 fit perfectly. I would give these boots 5 stars because they are extremely comfortable (I also tried the Melissa Button, and these are WAY more comfy on my feet - I have a fairly wide foot), however, they do not look like the picture, which is disappointing. When I opened the box, I thought they were the wrong boot, because they were brown with smooth leather - not the nice textured leather or the charcoal color you see in the picture. I called Zappos to inquire about the difference and they kindly sent me another pair to compare. Unfortunately, the second pair looks like the first and neither look anything like the photo. I am looking for a gray boot, however if you're looking for a dark brown boot (with a hint of gray if you hold it in the light just right), then you will be pleased with this boot.
