I love Zappos and Frye boots! The quality of Frye boots has never disappointed me. I have many pairs. Because of my high instep, I used a plastic bag to slip the boots on my feet. The leather is a little stiff but I do like the distressed black color. Works well with black or gray. This boot style is different with the wider opening but good with slim pants. I always wear 1/2 longer in Frye boots to allow for socks.

I am so excited about these! I have been looking for about a year for short stylish boots and these are great! They are very comfortable! I have already had compliments on them!

I love these boots. They fit me like a custom boot because of the low arch, I am nearly flat-footed. Most boots are a sloppy fit and slip around, but these don't. Use a shoe horn. Comfort from the first day. Plenty of room for toes. The appearance is great. This is a boot that can be re-soled and heeled when the time comes, rather than thrown away. Wear these for a long long time.

Boot quality is excellent, leather is stiff in heel, I do take a size 6, need to break them in, I returned them leather was too stiff but, beautiful well made boot, if you like the this type of style. Opening on top, too wide for me.

I am a 7.5 in most shoes/boots and I ordered the 7.5 in this boot and it will be fine with a medium sock;I believe the 7 would be too short. These boots are gorgeous in the redwood leather and the perfect shaft height for tucking in skinny pants. Extremely pleased with these boots; worth the price.

I almost sent these back, and even requested a return tag, because I am just not used to having to break shoes in any more. The heels slipped, and they were rubbing pretty badly. But, these boots otherwise ticked all of the boxes - a nice, low heel (easier on my hip joints), a tall enough toe box to fit two Spenco insoles (so I can walk for hours without sore feet), sewn-on soles a shoemaker can replace - with a non-stick plate on the sole and the heel, and easily polished to a hard shine (they are for work and casual wear). I was tired of paying a lot for boots with great looking uppers and cheap soles that wore out after a year or two and could not be replaced. So, I taped the heck out of my heels with Transpore tape (any drugstore has it) and got knee socks so the top edges did not rub, and now each time I wear them they get more and more comfortable. These well-made boots should last for years and look great. I am glad that I kept them!

These boots are beyond AMAZING! They took a bit to break in but once they do they are perfect. They are extremely versatile and go with a lot of different outfits. I would definitely recommend purchasing them and I more than likely will only buy Frye boots from here on out.

Boot = Frye so when I decided I "needed" a short boot I looked at the Frye shorties. I usually get a size 8.5 in Frye boots so I ordered the Lindsay in this but when it arrived and I put it on, it looked and felt really long. So because the cost is substantial and I wanted a good fit for the money, I ordered a size 8. It felt great first time on...the right length inside and outside the boot. I had no trouble getting the boot on as other Reviews stated and I do have a high arch. Anyway, I'm loving the way the boot looks with skinny jeans. And the antiqued black is perfect...not too distressed...more of a gray. These are going to be my BFF (best foot friends) for this boot season!

This is a very classy looking boot, and, also well made. There's nothing like a Frye boot. Do agree with others. If you you a high arch, they can be a little difficult to pull on. Once on, they are very comfortable.

It took me a while to order these boots as they are a bit expensive, but they are worth every penny. I love the look of them, and I will be wearing them for a long time with lots of different clothing from jeans to dresses. Love my Fryes!

Great boots. Tried many different brands/sizes and always go back to Frye! I find I need to order a half size larger than my typical size 8.

These are beautiful boots! I wanted something like a riding boot that had a 'cowgirl' look. These are just what I was looking for. The 'Cognac Stone Wash' is a rugged distressed finish, but the leather is super soft and pliable. I love the look. I have owned many pairs of Frye boots and always wear a 6 1/2. They run true to size, but perhaps a bit narrower (okay for me with a fairly narrow foot). I wear them with jeans, cords, and very long skirts. Fabulous!

I bought these in the Stone Wash. They are beautiful. I have at least 10 pair of Fryes in all different styles and types. This is my first ankle style boot. These are narrower in the toe than others but still the 7 1/2 (which is what I wear consistently in Frye) fits just fine.

These are gorgeous boots. Great quality and style. They run just a little bit big - I usually wear a 10 and the 9.5 boot fits me perfectly with thin socks. I ordered the redwood smooth leather and the black just to see about the sizing and the colors - both colors are so beautiful I'm keeping both. Will wear them with skinny jeans, the black with black jeans and the redwood with lighter washes.

This boot is stiff and requires a bit more break in than my other Frye boots. However, the leather is beautiful. Once worn a few times around the house, I was able to wear these normally. The heel slips as do most western style boots but no blisters so far. The leg opening is great for skinny jeans but too large to wear with most other leg styles except a true flare - at least for me.

Love the worn look to this boot. The leather is soft. They are not too wide for my small calves. they look great under or over jeans. Unfortunately my left foot is 1/2 size smaller than the right, so the heel of the left boot slips too much. It can not be corrected with a foot or heel insert. Sad.

I have complicated feelings about these boots. I love them but our relationship has had its problems. I have other shoes by Frye, and I wear a size 7½, but in this style that size made my feet blister and bleed. After a couple of days I could not even get my feet into them. Zappos is great so they exchanged them for a size up. My feet were still bleeding, but at the calf where for some reason there is an inexplicably sharp piece of plastic thread sticking out that rubs my skin raw unless I am wearing thick, tall socks. I took a lighter and burned the end of the threads off, and now I can finally wear these boots without further injury. So once my scars heal I will be completely happy! The style is great and once you are in the right size, they are comfortable!

I bought this boot for my daughter. It was a little stiff and difficult to get on (we had to use the plastic bag trick to get it on). The leather quality is good. The style is cute and they are stretching now.

I was so excited to get these boots but was disappointed in the fit. My heels were coming out as I walked and the opening above the ankle was a bit too wide/open to my liking. I own the Melissa Button riding boot & the Paige Trapunto in 8 1/2's but this boot has a narrower toe box as well as a stiffer feel in comparison. I love the idea of this bootie but I think if I were to get a 1/2 size smaller the toe box would be too narrow to be comfortable. Sad they're going back.

The distressed leather looks great. The feel of the boot on, however, feels stiff, and is difficult to get your foot into. I hope it gets softer after wearing more often.

I wanted to love these, the color is gorgeous and I have been waiting patiently for Zappos to have my size again. Sadly there is just too much space at the ankle. They end up looking heavy and manly on my foot.

These boots are beautiful, but I have to agree with other reviewers, and I'm returning them. They run long - I always wear a nine and these look enormous. However, they are also very narrow in the toe box (and I have a narrow foot). So my toes are crunched together, and my heel is slipping. An 8.5 would be the correct length, but there is no way I could squeeze in my toes. Bummer! Also, the ankle opening is very wide.
