These boots are too, too pretty. I wear them nearly every day. They are beautiful and incredibly well-made. Even though they are a bit expensive, they are worth it because they will last forever. I wear them to work under work pants and wear them all weekend with jeans tucked into them or with dresses and leggings. Just lovely!

These are truly beautiful boots. They take some time to wear in (the toes feel a bit narrow, but they do stretch) & are well worth it once they do. When I first ordered the antique brown grain, I had thought the wrong color was sent...the boots were darker than pictured (more like the taupe antique color). The color does lighten up though, and now the boots are more like the color pictured. All in all, a great purchase & would highly recommend.

I love these boots. They're so classy looking and so comfortable. I've had them for about 5 months now and wear them all the time because they go with everything, even with dressy slacks. This is because the cut is less cowboy and more refined. The leather is gorgeous - smooth, shiny in a good way, deep rich color (cognac - not the orange it looks like in these photos). The low heel height suits me fine, because it means I can walk forever in them. I got a half size up from normal and regret it, because they're a little loose, but was too lazy to return them. I won't go on about the high quality of them, because that's a well-known given with Fryes. The leather soles were rather slippery when I first got them and they still are a bit, but scuffing them up helps a lot. Sometimes the snaps come undone and I hear them rattle when I walk. These are the only 2 negative things I can think of to say about them.

I love these boots! I love them so much I ordered them in Black as soon as I got home from my 1st day wearing them. I have worn them several times since and they get better and better. I invested in the Frye leather care items as well to keep them nice and attractive for years to come. Highly recommend.

Soft, squishy footbed and great fit. While not all Frye boots are blister-free on my feet, these ones continue to be. The smooth leather style has a really beautiful polish, and they look classy. I'll be buying another pair soon.

These are gorgeous boots. I ordered the chocolate glazed and love the look of them. I usually wear a 5.5 or 6 M. I ordered the 5.5 and they fit perfect. No complaints here. Frye is a great brand. Love their shoes.

Initially a little difficult to get on the zipper was a little sticky. After a bit of time the zipper struggle was over. Overall a beautiful, comfortable boot, even though a bit pricey. I should note the first pair I bought were defective, badly peeling, and Zappos exchanged them no problem.

I am in love with these boots. I have a high instep, so other Frye's are difficult to pull on, but the zipper style is perfect, and the look is absolutely fab. I've worn them with skirt, jeans, leggings and would like to wear them every day! The color is gorgeous as is everything else about them.

Such a great boot! You feel instantly cool when you put these on your feet. Great weathered/distressed look, goes great with short and maxi skirts, skinny jeans and leggings. Go a half size down unless wearing with thick socks.

Such great boots. Because at first they were snug (appropriately so) around my long, narrow feet with high arches, I was able to mold them perfectly on day one. Didn't want to take them off. Not the slightest discomfort ever. Super stylish. Excellent leather and workmanship. Might get another color, too. Remember to always put a zip sole on to increase the life span. These are lifelong friends.

I absolutely love these boots. They are fabulous. I work on my feet all day and I wore them out of the box on the first day for eight hours on concrete floors and had no problems. They are just beautiful everyday boots.

Well made, attractive boot from Frye. A little more purplish than pink, but still a nice color. Order at least one size up; narrow and too short. Will have to return.

These are the most amazing boots I've ever bought in my life! The minute I put them on I refused taking them off! Super comfortable, true to size I usually wear a 7/7.5 but ordered these in an 8 so I can wear thick socks. They look great with jeans, pants, leggings even with bootcut jeans and pants. Super versatile wear to work or out for dinner. Great leather, and quality. For this price everyone should own at least 2-3 pairs in different colors! Hope this helps.

Gorgeous boot! I read all the reviews and decided to order up one half size but that was a mistake. I normally wear a 7.5 but I ordered an 8 and it's way too big. I will return the 8s and order the 7.5. The color is beautiful and goes with everything even black. In fact, it's a nice alternative to black. I have too much black.

I too found these to be a half-size too small. I normally wear a 7, but it was very uncomfortable. I have been wearing the 7.5 all day and it is comfortable and stylish - not too clunky. I ordered the gray - it's a good color, an unusual brownish gray that seems to go with everything. Love the style - I can wear them with will all kinds of different jeans, with the cuffs tucked in or out. Thanks guys. Oh, and the leather smells wonderful too.

I love my boots. I have looked so long for a low heel. They were true to size. Zappos is a great place to shop.

I love the style of these boots! I have tried other Frye styles but I love these because they are light and not too clunky. They seem comfortable although I just got them and haven't worn them for a long period of time. I did have to return the first pair and get a half size bigger than I normally wear.

Great flat boot. Simple style, sleek fit around the ankle, easy to get on thanks to the zipper, versatile style. The gray is a perfect neutral that will look good with skinny jeans, boot leg pants, tights & skirts, etc. I found they fit true to size and width. Leather soles so I will add a zip sole to protect them from rain and mud.

I hardly ever write reviews, but I had to share my excitement over these boots. I love the style, fit, and quality of these boots. I've been looking for a pair of Frye boots forever that fit well and I've tried the Carson, Carmen, Veronica, and Campus boot and returned all of them because either the size 11 was too big or so small I could not get my foot into the boot! These are perfect and polished and comfortable right out of the box. I also love the low heel as I'm tall already and not looking to add a lot of extra height.

Have been looking for plain low heel boot. These are amazing! The snaps are very good quality and zipper is sturdy. I love these so much I am going to buy a second pair before they change it. These are so much better quality than my regular low riding boot. I love them!

I loved this boot! Short is good since I'm 71 years old (but still very cool). If it came in a wider width, it would have been perfect for my old feet. So disappointed, especially since it is such a beautiful color in the brown.

from Florida

I ordered a pair of these, a pair of Frye's Wyatt Harness Short, and a pair of Frye's Carson Tab short for comparison, intending to keep one pair as a Christmas/birthday present to myself. Of the three, this was my least favorite. I ordered a 7.5 in all three; I usually wear a 7.5 or 8, and in these and the Carson Tab I could wear with a thing sock comfortably. Since I'm in Florida this would have been fine, but if you're on the edge size-wise and want to wear a thick sock, you may want to go up. What knocked these boots out for me was style - I have a tall pair of Fryes with a back zip and buttons, and I am in search of a short boot specifically because I don't want to have to deal with that (but wanted to try these because they're so cute!). The zipper on both boots was a little wonky for me, though after fighting with it I was able to use each just fine - I assume they'd get easier with time, as some of the resistance seemed to come from the structure of the boot itself. The multi-step process of getting these on, combined with the fact that they just didn't look as cute to me with skirts or with pants tucked in, put these at the bottom of that list of three I ordered. They are, as all Fryes are, though, beautifully made. I got the Gray Antique color and it's definitely more brown than gray, but a very soft brown.
