I am a true to size 7. I bought these in both a 7 and a 6.5 as other reviewers said they ran 1/2 size big. The 7 was more comfortable to get on, but my foot slid all over the place. The 6.5 was snug in the toe box but after wearing it around the house they were perfect. If they are snug, blast them with a blow dryer and wear around the house. Voila, perfect Fryes! Also, I bought the Chocolate Vintage which is a stiffer leather than the khaki color. I think it will stretch out perfectly! Hope this helps!

Love 'em! So I have a wider foot and I can walk in these a goodly amount of time, but after a while it starts to get rather uncomfortable towards the ball of my foot. But, other than that, I love these! They are so cute on and were just what I was looking for.

These boots are fantastic. They are so well-made. They are quite heavy so I wasn't sure about comfort, but I have worn them all day long on several occasions with great results. I have a small foot - I generally order a 5 in boots, so these are a little roomy for me (Frye sizes start at 5.5), but I just wear thicker socks. The color is fantastic with all shades of denim. These are my new favorite boots.

These are Great Boots! I have other Frye boots, so I know their quality. These are so cool with everything! Dresses, skirts, leggings, jeans, whatever. I decided on the Old Towne Charcoal rather than Black. The Black were harsh and biker-ish compared to the charcoal. The charcoal color is nice and rich looking. Like an old black boot already broken in.

Love these boots! The charcoal color is exactly what I was looking for - basically a distressed black. I went down half a size and it fits perfectly. It was challenging to get my heel in the first time but the boots softened really well after the first wear. I was a little worried it would be too short to look good with skinny jeans but I've already had a lot of compliments on that look. Just beware that this is more of a true, heavy Frye.

I have these in the tan from last season; I do love them, the color is great -- goes with everything. I ordered 1/2 size down, 7 to 6.5, wore them a full day, and wanted to cut them off after walking in them for hours. Had to sell on eBay and took a loss. I did some research, tried some on in stores and found that for me, 1/2 size up is better considering that I have a bunion on my left foot. These are great with boot socks! A little heavy but they are a substantial boot. Regular size in the harness mule, yay! The Carson, regular size, the Cavalry, up 1/2 size. Hope this helps someone!

Love these. I ordered them in a 7.5 (my normal size). They are too big so I had to order a 7. This color is great! Very varied and marbled. I also order the "tan" and loved those, too. Wish I could keep both. The tan is as dark as these, but without the striations and marbled/vintage looking leather. Great looking boot, too! Again - wish I could've kept both! You can't go wrong with this boot! Had Fryes in the '70s and wore them (through 2 soles!). Nice to have a pair again! Will be back for another sometime soon!

I ride a motor scooter almost daily, and I didn't want to wear full-out motorcycle boots. These Fryes fill the bill. The cowhide is good and thick and doesn't turn all wimpy in damp weather. The charcoal gray is a perfect color choice with jeans and black pants; not too overwhelming. Easy to take off, but they take a little wiggling putting on. These boots are heavy, so think of them as ankle weights. Free workout! Made in the USA. Frye and Vespa is fabulous.

I've wanted these for a long time and ordered a half size smaller as per some of the suggestions. They were snug when I got them so I wore them few times thinking they would stretch but they're still too tight. I'm really disappointed - they don't fit and I wore them already.

As others have stated, these are great boots. They do run a little large, but I ordered a 7.5 to compare and chose to go with the larger size as it was more comfortable. I like the color and style. The only thing that is a little uncomfortable is the weight of this style, but I like it so much I am willing to have them be a little heavy.

These boots rock! They run a bit big, I usually wear 9, but went to 8½. There is still some room, but enough to be comfortable with a sock. They are made impeccably and Fryes never disappoint. Zappos of course, is 5 stars all the way! Love these boots, they will last a lifetime and look super cool!

Don't buy any other brand of harness boot. The style is timeless...yet sometimes you fear that when you go to buy from an old trusted brand, you might find that they've cheapened. Frye doesn't. Frye won't. I bought these harness boots (the 12R, actually) in 2005 in a dark green. After five years of wearing them, at the very least, every other day, I needed a new pair. I got these 8R's today and they're the same amazing boots. Comfortable. Beautiful. Durable. Seriously, don't buy any cheaper versions. You'll be dissatisfied.

I always thought these were so hot looking but I held off because they are pricey, and boots aren't known to be comfy on problem feet like mine. I recently took the plunge, and wow. Good arch support was a major surprise and they look so sharp on. I am 58 and feel like a babe when I wear them. Wonderful soft leather and just the right heel height too. Love them. Zappos had them to me the day after I ordered them. Very happy.

I have been wanting a pair of Frye boots for a long time. I’m glad I chose this pair -- they are stunning!!! The workmanship is impeccable, and the color and distressing of the leather is gorgeous. I saw them in a local shop and was immediately drawn to them. When they didn’t have my size I went to Zappos and of course they were in stock! I do not agree with some others’ comments that these boots run big. If you have wide ankles or a high instep then you should order at least true to size, as the harness around the ankle may be a constraint. After ordering my usual size and having to return them (totally easy with Zappos!), I tried for a half size up and they fit perfectly. I do not think these boots will disappoint!

I usually wear a size 7-1/2 but these boots ran large, so I got a 7 - they are gorgeous boots - I love them - worth the price and I know hey will last a long, long time - Zappos is awesome - they did the exchange without the first problem and I got my boots before I went home for the holidays - I would definitely recommend these - the color is just gorgeous and the size is perfect with jeans, trousers and heck, even jean mini-skirts.

The new chocolate color of this short boot is gorgeous. The mix of light tan and deep brown is rich and unique and the height of the boot is perfect with skinny jeans or leggings. I have this boot in other colors, but this one is special. As always with this style, size down one half size. It would be nice if Frye would put more insole padding in the Harness, but it is still a comfortable boot.

Great boots! Love the boots. They are a little loose in the heel, but they fit well with thicker socks. Zappos is awesome. They were out of stock in my size (11) so I put in for an alert when they were available. Within 24 hours I had an e-mail saying they had them available. I ordered and within just a couple days I had them in hand! Can't beat that.

So glad I bought it! I saw a co-worker with Frye harness boots and immediately wanted a pair! The suede, broken-in look and feel of these is great, and the shorter height is so cute! I wear them everyday...definitely worth the splurge. I wear a 10, bought a 10, and while they feel a little big, they are more comfy that way.

Cool Boots - These are great looking boots. They are very loose in the heel, however. Maybe ordering a 1/2 size smaller would help?
