Just got these and they fit like a dream! I bought Melissa Logo's last year and they were extremely comfortable so I decided to order these. I'm probably more a 10.5 than a 10 and I ordered the 10, so they seem to run a little larger than the true size. These are roomy enough for light socks without the break in/stretch you get with leather boots.

These boots are so beautiful, but had to send them back because the shaft circumference was wrongly stated by Zappos. If you look at the measurements on the Frye website you will see that the true circumference is 14 1/2 not 15 1/4 as stated by Zappos. So if you are going to purchase any boots from Zappos check the Frye Company first to make sure of the true measurements so you wont waste your time. I called Zappos on the carpet for this error and they stated that they just measure them from a different part of the boot.

I ordered these boots in my search for a tall riding boot in black. They are absolutely beautiful! I love the metal spur on the back..makes the boot. Unfortunately, they were extremely difficult to get on. I was able to finally get my foot in with the help of a plastic grocery bag. The shaft of these boots is extremely tight on my 16 inch calves. I could get them over my skinny jeans..however they wouldn't pull all the way up. The ankle and lower calf area is big and baggy. The upper shaft is so tight...felt like a tourniquet over my legs. I thought about having them stretched at a cobbler, however with the price tag, didn't want to risk it. I think with the addition of a zipper and some stretching...they could work. Again, with the price of these, I was afraid to try. I think they are going back. So sad, as they are beautiful. I am a size 9 and the foot bed fit well. Going to try the Veronica slouch and the Melissa button back zip. If they don't work, I'm going for the Lindsay spur short!

I have to agree with the earlier anonymous reviewer. I just got these boot. I was so excited! And then I couldn't fit them past my instep. It isn't a fat calf problem (I don't have fat calves), but it seems like the ankle area of the boot is really narrow. I can't even get my foot in! I'm very disappointed. I can't imagine what the shoe would feel like if I were to be able to put it on. It's a shame. I guess I'll be returning them, too.

Never have I dreamed that I'd someday shell out this much on a pair of boots! It all changed when I first received Fryes boots from Zappos. I've never been more in love. I was so happy with how these shoes look on me (and in the box too!) that I was literally doing a happy dance and kissing the boots out of pure joy. (I'll not be judged!) If you can overlook the price tag (which is very hard to do, trust me), you'll have a pair of boots that should very well last you a lifetime. The way these boots are designed makes my figure look much more slender too...which every girl can use. These boots are quite an investment...but I'm sure you won't regret it!

I love these but the top of the boot is way too narrow. I have thin calves so I am not sure who these will fit. I will be returning them.

Beautiful boots, definitely a little tight around the calves, but they are ok on me. The leather is very soft and the padded footbed make the boot comfortable. I have several pairs of Frye boots, and always order a half size down. I wear an 8 in all others shoes, but 7 1/2 with Frye.

I love these boots. I think their bueatiful and comfortable. They go well with pants or skirts. I am very happy with them and have gotten a lot of complements. I do hope they last a long time since I have never spent so much on footwear in my life.

What can I say but these boots are total class and comfort! Wore them all day the 1st time and did not have an issue at all! Beautifully made boots! LOVE the 2 tone brown! Expensive but well worth the price! Just ordered the black ones too! I normally wear a 9 but they slipped too much in the heel and the 8.5 fit perfectly! I have a 14" calf and these look great with my leggings! I am 5'8" and the shaft height is perfect where as the Dorado riding boots were just way too tall. Thanks Zappos for the prompt service and and Frye for the quality product! What a perfect combination!

I have been looking for an low-heel riding boot (Frye). These are good looking and very thick leather. I ordered 7 and 7.5 based on the previous reviews and the problems that people were experiencing with the instep and statements about running large. The 7 would not go on my foot. I am a true 7.5 and that pair went on much easier. They are perfect in the calf area without jeans, but with jeans they are tight. That being said, the leather is of high quality and will give and stretch as I wear them. I also ordered another pair with a zipper and multi-color but the toe box was not as nice looking on the foot (but very easy to put on). They are going back and these are keepers. My favorite boots are a pair Lucchese boots that I bought 20 years ago in Texas of ostrich (I had them resoled by my local cobbler because I wore through the leather and they look brand new.) These may become my second favorite pair.

I wanted these boots for a full year before I bought them, and I'm still upset about the lost time. Most beautiful boots I've ever owned. The leather is soft right out of the box and they are easy to slip on. Getting them off is a little more difficult, but nothing too troublesome. Looks great over skinny jeans and/or knee-high socks. Guy or girl, everyone compliments these boots. Don't settle for a cheaply made imitation. Frye boots are timeless and always a good investment.

Okay, so I initially ordered the Jenna Studded Tall in black and chocolate glazed vintage, decided I loved the chocolate glazed but wasn't blown away by the black, returned the black and ordered both these in black and the Jenna Chain Tall in black to replace the Jenna Studded Tall in black. I should also note that I had every intention of only keeping one black boot. However, now that I've received both, I don't know if I'm going to be able to get myself to return one of them. These are fantastic looking boots and the spur detailing on the back really sets these apart from other boots I've seen. That said, these aren't the most comfortable boots out of the box (I'm sitting here with them on now to see if I can stretch them out a bit) and just fit my 13.5-14'' calf. I'm about 5'7 and these hit me really nicely at about maybe 1-1.5'' below the knee. They truly look like an equestrian boot and you can tell they're of very high quality. I ordered a size 7.5 based on reviews (I take a 7-8 in shoes depending on the style/make, but nearly always an 8 in boots) and they fit very nicely. However, the 8 would've worked as well and would've allowed me a little more room to wear a thicker sock (could still wear a thicker sock with these, but the thinner is definitely going to be the more comfortable option). I think these run pretty TTS for Frye and maybe a little less than .5 sizes bigger than other brands. That being said, I think I do prefer the Jenna Chain Tall to these, but they're both such different looking black boots (yes, even with both of them having silver detailing on the lower part) that I'm thinking I'll just bite the bullet and keep both. Even though these score a bit lower in my book than the Jenna Chain Tall, they still look fantastic and I would definitely consider buying these in other colors. However, think that'll have to wait until next year considering this is my 8th pair of boots in the past two weeks!

I was looking for a brown, equestrian style boot as a wardrobe staple. After trying numerous Frye styles and reading multiple reviews. I finally found the Lindsay Spur. This boot is so comfortable and stylish. I wear them at least 4 times a week. They look great with anything and have that polished, classic look that I wanted. I am a true size 8 and I sized down to a 7.5, which fit me perfectly. Love this boot, I can't recommend it enough!

I've had these for about a month and it is hard not to wear them every day. They were a little tight mid-foot the first day or so, then they loosened up nicely. Super comfortable even for all day wear and look great with leggings. The leather is stunning in dark brown multi. My first Fryes-- not my last.

I had been looking for a simple, tall, brown leather riding boot like this for a long time. This is my first pair of Frye boots and I am delighted with the quality. The Lindsay Spur was crazy expensive for me, but I bit the bullet and really think that they are worth it. I always wear a size 8, but since Zappos was sold out of the 8 and some other reviewers had said that these ran long, I got the 7.5. This was a great choice because the 7.5 fits really nicely. I have fairly narrow feet, but always wear regular width shoes. So I agree that these run slightly large. An 8 probably would have been too big for me. I loved the sleek simplicity of these boots. They are flat and have no tacky zipper. To help get these on, there are stirrups on the inside which are great. I am 5 foot 7 and these are the perfect height. They hit a couple inches below the knee and really elongate my legs. This was one of the few boots I saw that were slightly taller, which was a necessity for me. The redwood color is really nice. It looks shiny but slight variations in the brown color make them look a bit distressed in a nice way. As these age, I think they will become even more beautiful. These fit nicely over skinny jeans, with a little extra room so they aren't too tight. My ankles aren't swimming in these, which I have seen on some other cheaper boots. There is some breaking in to do, but these have been fairly comfortable from the start and are already getting more so. I plan to wear these boots forever which is how I justified paying so much for these. I love them and get complimented all the time when I wear these.

These boots are absolutely gorgeous. The leather is smooth and impeccable and supple. When I tried them on the calves were a little tight (I run everyday), but since I knew they were leather I had to pray that they would stretch because they were too nice to send back. Only a few wears later they are custom-molded to my legs and feet. I should also mention that immediately after taking them out of the box they were incredibly comfortable on my feet. So glad I kept them, I wear them almost everyday with jeans, skirts/dresses, leggings.

These boots are absolutely beautiful. I got them in redwood and wore them all day the next day. The leather is slightly stiff at first but softens up quickly. They do run just a bit long but I don't find them wide at all, perhaps even a bit narrow but that is minimal. Last year I ordered and returned four pairs of boots before I settled on the fifth. This year, the Lindsay Spurs were the first ordered and are most definitely keepers. I absolutely love Fryes but paying attention to the information written about each pair is imperative because they are all very different. Zappos provides the most wonderful customer service imaginable. I ordered on Saturday afternoon late and the boots were on my doorstep on Monday.

I want to start out saying that Zappos is really all about the customer. When I received my beautiful Frye boots the height of my them were a little uneven. We called Zappos, told them the situation and immediately they sent me a new pair the next day! once I got them it took wearing them about 5-6 times to break them in. Now I love them! Frye products scream: quality and beauty!

Love these but sadly i have to return them. my legs are swimming in them. i usually take a 9 and ordered and 9 and they felt great - maybe a drop big but i didnt think a half size down would fix the extra large calf room.

They are hard to put on, slightly tight across arch. I thought this would strech out but when I was walking through house the boot would push my jeans up out of the boot.

I loved these boots until the metal piece in the back broke...in half...on both boots! I had only had them a few weeks when the first one went. I work at an office so I wasn't doing anything strenuous in these boots. A real bummer given the price tag. Love my other Fryes though!
