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!

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.

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!

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 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.

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!

This is my first pair of Frye boots. I have always admired the craftsmanship. I tried on 9 different styles. They really do fit very differently. After wearing them 1 day they were broken in! Such beautiful leather! Note: not all of the boots have the finished inside leather and not all are made in the USA for the price I wanted both. It will state it on the box. The leather soles are just so well made .....can't say enough great things! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the banana yellow!

Loved the boot, downsized, but should have kept my regular size. I have small calves, so they were snug even for me. Would have to wear leggings only with these. Quality was A+.

Love the Frye quality! These boots boots are a classic! Invest in some leather conditioner as they are stiff (& narrow) at first. As with any fine leather, the more you wear, the better they will get to know you.

I have wanted these boots for years and finally got them. They were snug across the front part of my foot, scrunching my toes, so I brought them to a shoe repair place and had them stretched a little for a small cost. I love them. They fit well now and look great. The calf part fits me well. I'm 5'9" and average weight. I bought my usual size 10.

This awesome boot is the quality I expected from the Frye name, the leather is superb, with an interesting coloring on the surface to give it a worn, fashionable appearance. I was pleased to find that these boots were made in the US, versus China - which I noticed on several other boots made by Frye. I love this shoe, it makes a great addition to my wardrobe. It matches with so many things.

I am deeply and profoundly in love with my Frye Campus 14Ls, and I owe it all to Zappos, who worked with me until I got it right. Order a 1/2-size smaller than your normal size! Also, be warned. This is not a tuck-your-pants-in boot for me. Fine with me, because that's not how I roll.

My Campus 14L are 10 years old. This is my second pair. My old pair still looks like new despite all the forestry work I put them through. The cushion supports must be something new Frye added, because my old pair didn't have them yet they were still comfortable. The Campus 14L are roomy in the toes. You can order a half size down if you want, but I don't recommend it. Why? Because I tried it and had to exchange for my normal size. My hiking, thermal and athletic socks wouldn't fit comfortably in there. And I could barely tuck in my skinny jeans, because the shaft circumference narrowed about 1/2 inch. If you have curvy calves like me or like to tuck in pants, order your usual size. If you have slender calves and want a tighter look with skirts, size down.

Great boots - even after 4 years of wear and tear. I own the saddle leather and they look just as good today as they did in the beginning. Super comfy, too! If there is anything I no longer love about the boot, it might be the crinkly looking lines that are present (possibly due to the "tanning" process?) - either way, still one of my go-to pairs of Fryes!

The Campus 14L boots are wonderful! The fit is perfect, a half size smaller than my regular size was great for me. The color is better in person and especially on my foot. Ordering and receiving the boots was very very smooth with no problems as usual. I will always order from Zappos; they are great to deal with.

This is the boot I've been looking for all my life. Goes with everything...dressed up or dressed down. I will say, it wasn't easy to get right. Zappos had to send 3 different pairs before I found the right boot fit and leather texture. Zappos was extremely helpful. They made the process easy! Not charging my card 3 different times. Excellent customer service. Love this boot and now I'm a Zappos customer for life!
