Comfortable and beautifully made boots. The ball my feet are wide, but I have narrow heels and high arches. I wear a size 6 or 6 1/2. I ordered these in 6 1/2 and they are perfect with almost any sock. Highly recommended.

These are great boots! Superior Frye quality as usual, comfortable and very cute. These are true to size for me. I have the Courtney slip on style in four colors and find these fit the same. I bought these in the black and I will probably be back for another color in these too. Wonderful customer service from Zappos as usual, too. Zappos is terrific.

Amazingly well made and comfortable. They seem to run a little narrow and small so consider ordering a size up. These are my first Frye boots and I am definitely sold on the price point vs. the quality being well worth it.

Worth the splurge! Comfy right out of the box, no breaking in at all. Looks amazing with skinny jeans, leggings, and tights. The heel is high enough to give a little lift. And my cranky ex-dancer feet with bunions which hurt even wearing sneakers, don't hurt one bit in these boots. I can wear them all day and night. With these boots, my whole wardrobe suddenly makes sense again. My favorite shoe purchase in a really long time. I was happy I ordered a half size up from my usual size, I think Fryes run a hair small.

Absolutely love 'em. They're worth the price, the leather is beautiful, they look fashionable and they're comfortable to wear all day long. I would expect these boots will last for years to come.

Cute boot. Super narrow. Can't even get my foot in them. Sad because they are really nice.

These were great out of the box. I'm a size 8 in length but I'd developed bunions in the last three years, and I was afraid the 8s would be tight. They're snug, but not painful, and I can feel that there's give to the leather. I know I can walk long city blocks in these. My most comfortable pair of shoes are inexpensive grannies with chunky heels. I thought I would not be able to find something similar--and I've found them in the Courtney lace-up. Even though they're considerably more money than my other grannies, I'm happy to have them.

Boots that are so spot on for my feet. I think they used the mold of my feet when they first created this darling pair. I just have to say that my quest is over in finding the perfect ankle boots. Quality, style, fit and height all thrown in one. I wear a narrow 6.5 and this narrow pair still gave my feet a wee bit of room for my feet to breathe. These boots are perfect if you have narrow feet. Thank you, Frye for finally making boots for petite feet! And Zappos, amazing, superb service as usual. Thank you!

Wow. Buttery soft leather, comfortable right out of the box. These lace up boots are dressier than the combat boots style, and will be perfect with skirts and leggings. I wear 7 in shoes, 7.5 in boots and the 7.5 in these gave me the perfect amount of room for light socks. This is my second pair of Frye, and I was not disappointed in the weight, quality and style. So worth the investment!

I love these boots! The heel is just high enough to give you some lift but low enough that they are still very comfortable for everyday wear.

It broke my heart to send these back! Most beautiful pair of boots ever. Exceptional workmanship, as expected from Frye. But, after wearing them in the house only, I decided that my very fussy feet were never going to withstand the break-in period required. I wish I could say, as other reviewers do, that these boots were comfortable right out of the box, but they were not. I know that good quality boots take some time to break in, but at this price, I was not willing to take the chance that they may or may not ever become wearable.

Got these in the mail today. I love the look of these boots. The slight heel is a nice touch of style, and it is short enough that the boots are still really easy to walk in. I got my usual size 8.5 in Frye's and most other brands and they fit, but they do feel just a bit tight. I think they will stretch a tiny bit, though, or at least mold to my feet some. They are not tight enough to be uncomfortable, but since I do have narrow feet, I am worried about how they will feel on those who have wider feet if they feel a little tight on me. This boot is exactly what I was looking for as a laid back college student who is studying in Europe this next year! Very cute worn laced up or folded down. You should definitely give them a try!

I work in a store that has industrial carpet over a cement floor; finding shoes that are comfortable all day is a real challenge. These boots were comfortable right away- no break-in period needed. This is my 4th pair of Fryes, so I can vouch for their fine quality and classic stylishness.

I have 4 other pairs of Frye boots, and these were the easiest to break in. The leather was so soft to begin with - and I didn't get blisters as I did with other Frye boots. I got the grey color - and they are beautiful. The 2 inch heel is so perfect because they are comfortable to wear and low enough that they don't feel like a heel. The only problem I've found with them is that the front part of the sole got scuffed- and underneath the brown it turned much lighter with wear - and I have only had them for a month. Other than that they are great -- but it seems that they shouldn't look so worn already (it's not like I drag my feet while I walk).

Very snug fit. I would have probably gone up an entire size had I kept them. I didn't love the look (kind of witchy!) and it just wasn't what I wanted style wise. However, the craftsmanship and leather were on point, as usual.

These were so tiny! I usually wear a 7.5 but could barely get my foot into these. They're very narrow! I would order at least a half size up. With that said, the leather is gorgeous. They're very well made.

I wore through the soles in 6 months -- they're really thin. I sent them back to Frye (not Zappos, though I'd bought from Zappos), and they sent me a brand new pair! I think the sole is a bit different, more tough. We'll see how they hold up. Otherwise the boots could not be more wonderful. I had to order up a whole size for both length and width.

These are probably the least true-to-size shoes I've bought in years -- I think of myself as a 7.5, and recently have bought 7s sometimes, due to size inflation. I kept the 6.5 of this boot and if a wide version were available, I'd probably try a 6W. They're that long. I initially thought they'd be too snug over my high instep, but I completely removed the laces and relaced them from scratch with the laces pointing up instead of down through the holes, while my foot was in the shoe, and that made them fit fine. I walk everywhere (usually 5 miles a day) and was impressed at how comfortable these were out of the gate. They're not cushiony, just solidly made.

I ordered the grey boots and it's more brown than grey (which is fine). My feet are pretty average, not too narrow, not too wide (more on the narrow side). I got a size 8, my usual size for flats, but dang these boots were hard to pull on! It's super tight! Usually boots make my feet look gigantic, but these make me look like I have petite feet! I have to return these and try 8.5 or 9. I have a bunion so my feet are not forgiving to tight shoes. Hope the bigger sizes fare better because I want it to go with my steampunk costume for Halloween (and also for everyday wear)!

So cute, but sadly my bunion-feet are too wide for it. I wish they were a touch wider. I love them and they made me feel like a superhero (with too tight shoes).

This Frye boot is made from a buttery soft leather...I found the zipper and shoelace combination a bit tedious and not v. practical. Lovely looking boot, but just not for me.

So cute! BUT I could barely get my foot in my normal size 38. An orthotic definitely won't fit. I might try sizing up. But for the price it needs to fit great!

The style of the boot is great but it is incredibly narrow. I simply could not get my foot in even with the laces loosened.
