Know how you see a celeb photo & think "Those are perfect boots. Wish I could find them (& afford them!)" Voila! This is it. I have this boot in Banana & Black. Both are show-stoppers! Gorgeous! Somehow the web-page photo doesn't capture the stunning beauty of the boot in-person! Leather quality is thick & luxuriously "tanned". Heel is high enough, but is flat - not "pitched" - meaning that although it's a 2" heel, your heel sits flat, not "tilted." So, you avoid the problem of your forefoot & toes getting jammed down into the front of the boot, but you still enjoy the sexy look of a mid-heel. A timeless investment. No need to size down - order your regular size. Will fit a wider foot comfortably too. Completely makes any outfit. So comfy, I've literally dozed off in mine (at the end of the day). I receive a lot of compliments on these boots. I'm a Master's level professional in Northeastern US, where Frye boots, as officewear, are not commonplace. These boots are so versatile, & they just ooze luxury, quality & richness! I'm told that I am regarded as having a "rich" wardrobe, but only because I stick to fabulous, quality basics! If you're on the fence, definitely this is the one Frye boot that is a must-have! I have a half-dozen pair of Frye's & am buying more! Thanks for reading.

I hate my Frye Campus. I wanted to love them. I gave them another chance even after they scraped my legs bloody. Leather is unyielding. When I put them on there are deep indentations because the leather is trying to mold to my foot/leg but can't. These are so painful in every way.

Adorable, cool, the look is perfect but heel slips terribly so very hard to walk quietly. felt very clunky to walk in. Wanted desperately to keep just because they're darn cool but sent back.

Love these boots! I have one foot that's a half size larger than the other due to an injury and scar tissue. So I bought the size 9, even though I normally wear an 8 1/2 in Fryes (this is my fifth pair of boots/shoes). I ordered both the banana and black colors, but the black was way to big on both feet, and the banana fit perfectly on the bigger foot and slips just a bit on my smaller foot. Weird, I know. Will use a heel pad on that foot. Anyway, these are the same wonderful Frye quality I've come to expect, and the banana color is adorable! The legs are just wide enough without looking cowboyish. Love the slightly squared toe. Very classic, and I know I'll be wearing these for many winter days to come! I'm also ordering the black ones in my usual 8 1/2, as I think they will fit just right though too big in the size 9. Funny how different colors are slightly different size. Go figure.

The name Frye brings up thoughts of quality, long wearing/lasting and style. This Campus does not disappoint. Customer service at Zappos...Rock Stars! In my search for a pair of Frye boots that I could work in, while standing very long hours, just enough style/comfort/heel/arch support....must of tried 7 other styles of Frye before I got to these. I have always loved the Campus Boot but was afraid it would not be enough of what I was looking for. I read through many reviews before deciding to try them, honestly all the praise was right. Thanks to all who gave it a thumbs up. The leather is not thin, the heel is just the right height, the toe box has room, the arch is perfect. Was afraid of my fulle calves causing an issue but they just need a slight stretch and knowing I can do the little bit the rest will wear in perfect for my legs. I wanted the banana but they were out in my size so I tried the Blazer Brown. It is a great color, the photo on Zappos shows a hint of red/ox blood but it is not there when you see them in person. Nice rich brown, not "dirty" looking. Will work for my wardrobe from shorts to skirts to casual dresses. This is my fourth pair of Frye Boots...a new favorite.

I have two pair of Campus, one current style and one pair from the 70's. They are different. But for the current Campus, they are still awesome. If you're not used to waring this type of shoe, you will need to break them in and they may not seem comfortable at first. Use leather conditioner and break them in at home. Wear them till they hurt, then take them off. If you just can't wait to wear them to work, take another pair of shoes with you. As for sizing, I would suggest trying them on at a local store if one near you carries them. I wear a 7 and did get a 7 in the Campus but I also use a shoe cushion to give them a little extra softness. Buy from Zappos, they have an excellent return / exchange policy. This type of boot may feel a little loose at first, be aware that a broken in pair of Frye boots does not fit the same as a brand new pair. They will conform to your foot in time. If you've got larger calves, this part of the boot can be stretched, just take them in to your local shoe repair shop if you don't feel comfortable doing this on your own. They may seem expensive initially but I've also got a pair that I've had since the 70's. Still in great shape. They've got leather soles so they have been re-soled 2 or 3 times but how many pair of shoes do you have that are 40 years old and still going strong! Just use a good quality leather conditioner on them from time to time and they'll last a long, long time.

I have coveted these boots for YEARS! When they went on sale and I had some coupons, I pulled the trigger. They are everything I expected them to be. Worth every penny, even if I had paid full price. Yes, they are a little snug and will take a while to wear in but they will last a lifetime. If you've had your eyes on these too, just buy them already. You won't be disappointed.

These are the best boots ever! They were my favorite boots back in the seventies when I got my first pair. I wore them well into the 80's, but finally had to say goodbye to that pair. (They were the blonde leather color). I have had my new brown ones for about two weeks. I usually wear a size ten, so I ordered a 9-1/2. They fit like they were made for me. Which is great - I expected to have a breaking in period, but didn't. They are perfect right out of the box. There has not been a day that I have worn them that someone hasn't complimented me on them. And I received them the next day. And Zappos's. My sister sat in on the call to order them. When I got off the phone, she wrote down the name of the store because she was so impressed with how nice the experience was. The woman I spoke with to order could not have been more helpful. Thank you!

Just a note about one of the colors. I ordered these in the "dark brown", the pair I received was really a dark dull mustard color, that I found very unappealing. Side note - I love the heel on these boots! Wanted to love the whole boot, but for me the shaft length is awkward looking, combined with the odd color, I am returning.

Great quality boots, but the style wasn't for me. The calves were too snug to look good over jeans, and the ankles were too bulky look good with skirt and dresses. Too bad - I wanted these to work! I have a narrow ankle but wider toebox. I normally wear an 8.5, or a 9 if the shoe is cut narrow. In these boots, I took a 9 - the 8.5 really pinched.

I am a Frye addict and, like so many, remember these iconic boots from my high school days in the 70's. Alas, I didn't own a pair back then but admired them on all the 'cool kids' at my high school! I am between an 8.5 (Melissa Button) and a 9 (Phillip Harness) in Frye and am normally an 8.5 in other shoes. Based on the reviews, I ordered the 8 in the Campus 14l and it was too tight in the toe box. I know it might stretch but the toe box is pretty important so I think I'll need to go with an 8.5. But the boots were gorgeous, I ordered on Saturday and they arrived on Monday, and I just loved them!

Just received my Womens Campus Frye Boot in Dark Brown! I had this boot in the '70s in Banana - and loved it then. This boot has stood up to time excellently in its style, and fit and the overall look of this boot! Own many other Frye boots and love them all - but this one by far is my favorite. As far as sizing goes - I have always been an 8 1/2 in their boots as well as my actual shoe size - I saw from other reviews to order a half size smaller -- I do not agree - unless you are going to wear these boots with a very thin sock - I wear my thick socks with them and my regular 8 1/2 is a perfect fit! Zappos is the best! After ordering them on line - I received them the next day!

Campus, in brown was the first model of Frye boots I ever owned. I bought them when I was a teenager, and they lasted 12 years! Comfortable and sturdy from the outset. I now own four more pairs. Three in the Harness 12 variety and one Vera slouch and the more distressed, the better. Love them forever!

I love these Frye boots: Campus in black. I coveted this pair for 40 years before finally buying them, and they are as good as my dreams. I already had a pair of Frye harness. For both of these styles, I'd say it's true what people say, that they tend to run large. Depending on shoe brand and style, my feet usually fit either 7 or 7.5, and Frye size 7 fits me fine. This may depend on the style, though; once in a store I attempted to try on Frye Veronica tall, and could not even get my foot past the boot ankle. For the check box that asks about fit, I'll check "true to size" as it's difficult to convey these subtleties. Anyway these are beautiful boots. I can wear them through a 12-hour work day with no regrets.

I think I am in the minority here - these boots fit more snugly than I expected. My normal shoe size is an 8½, but I returned these for a 9, which fits much better. I have short legs, so these approach my knees. But if you are taller, keep in mind these likely will not be knee-high on you. Overall, though, great boots, and the quality seems high.

Love the cool, rustic look of these boots. They are warm and fit well- I'm an 11- 11 & 1/2 and the 11s are just right. They are comfortable on; only complaint is they are on the heavy side and my feet/legs can be sore after wearing all day or doing a lot of walking. I'm used to Birkenstocks so plan to get a Birkenstocks arch support/insole which may help. I have them in saddle and they go with everything. Craftsmanship is impeccable, I know i'll have them forever. Money well spent.

I was so excited to open the Zappos box today with my new Frye Campus 14L boots! Unfortunately, I was very disappointed that I wasn't able to slide them over my calf! I got the Saddle Brown in an 8½ and they are gorgeous! I never considered my calfs to be unusually large and never had a problem getting tall boots before until now. I thought about having them stretched because I hate to send them back but I cannot take the chance that it will not work and be stuck with expensive boots that I cannot wear.

I have wanted these for a long time, and finally purchased. I bought them in the banana color, and they are so pretty that I wish they used a more elegant name for the color choice. The blond tone is beautifully marbled with some darker lines. They are a great heel height for all day wear, even at work, and I am out of my chair from one end of my office to the other daily. I love the height of the shaft and the square toe. They are thick leather and fully lined in leather. I think they, and particularly in the blond color, will pair well with almost anything. I am absolutely keeping them.

Initially I ordered the Campus Stitching Horse. As much as I really loved the fit and look of the boot, I really needed a boot that was more versatile, and not quite so country/western. Besides the colors offered here at the moment were not what I had in mind. Banana is too light and walnut too dark. So I tried these in Saddle. I do love the heel height in these boots. I also love the shaft circumference. I like that they are plain without stitching. They fit nice and close to my calves like the Campus boots did, (my calves measure about 13½") with room to spare for skinny jeans underneath, yet would be still fit closely enough to bare legs for a skirt or dress. My issue with these boots is that me heels slipped quite a bit in the 7½ size (which is my size) as well as my feet in general felt like they were flopping inside the boot. Where as the shaft fit perfect, except for the ankle area, where it seemed as though it was too roomy, and bent/collapsed with each step unattractively. I ended up choosing the Phillip Harness Tall boot in the 7½ size. Now that boot fit beautifully and very comfortably! I can now say I have a pair of Fryes, even though it took me several pairs to figure out which was going to work best for me. Thank you, Zappos! Your shipping and return policy, is great. Otherwise just guessing would not work, as all boots, styles, fit differently.

I hadn't had a pair of Frye boots in years mainly because if I'm going to invest in a pair of good boots I want to be able to wear them to work and many of the Frye styles are just a bit too casual for a professional office. However, once I saw the Campus boot I knew right away that it work work. The boot fits true to size and with the slightly higher heel, it looks great with skirts. These boots are a bit more expensive than some but I can tell they'll last a long time. You won't be sorry once you have them in your closet!

Ordered these a couple years ago, am not one who spends this much money on shoes. But loved the look and know they're great quality. Sadly after returning 3 times, I gave up. Zappos was awesome about returns, but these boots are sized very weirdly. Normally wear an 8 1/2, returned these 3 times, was down to a size 6 or maybe 6 1/2, still huge! Oh well,unless you know your size in Frye, I'd suggest trying on in store first. To bad, awesome shoes.
