I love these boots. They are a bit narrow, so I bought some leather conditioner and put a shoe spreader in them overnight and that did the trick. I have flat feet; I cannot wear heels and most days I wear Skechers. That said, these are surprisingly comfy and I can wear them all day without pain. I also got the distressed pair because they were the only ones that were not $300 (I got them for about $79) and funny enough, after using the leather conditioner on them, they look almost new and are a gorgeous, deep, rich brown. I guess the distressing process just dumps a bunch of dirt on the boots! Anyway, I am very happy with these boots and love the way they look and feel.

Totally believe it when I say this boot runs really small. Even reading the previous reviews I got a size 7 which is a half a size larger than what I usually wear and I am sending it back for a size 7.5. I wear a 6 in most sandals and pumps and a 6.5 in boots. I have several Frye harness boots and I wear a 6 in those but have gotten a 6.5 also. I have a lot of frye shoes(sandals,oxfords etc) and boots and all of them are a size 6 or 6.5 except for a Frye Phillip work boot which runs small so I got it in a size 7. That being said, after reading the reviews I promptly ordered a 7 in these and they felt like a size 6. I got my feet inside but only with very thin socks. So they went back. I loved the fit around the ankle so I promptly ordered them in a 7.5.
The zipper did seem a little hard to get down but usually that is not a problem with a q-tip and WD-40. When I have other boots that have a difficult zipper, I just spray WE-40 on a Q-tip and gently rub it along the zipper and Bam! It slides up and down like a charm. So if the 7.5 comes and has a difficult zipper then that's my solution to the problem.
Thrilled with the slightly vintage look and feel of my first pair of Frye boots. Went up half a size using the Amazon recommendation and I'm glad I did. I normally wear a 6.50 (or 36.50) and bought a size 7. The fit is purrrfect; like a glove. My normal size would have been too small.
Adore the back zipper instead of the ugly side ones. Doesn't hamper my ability to walk, talk, or drive my car in any way. Meow.

If I could have given these boots 4.5 stars I would have. But since there are no half star options I erred on the side of optimism. These boots are up to the Frye quality. The height on my leg is pretty good - although it would be better if I were a little taller, but whatcha gonna do about it. I am 5'2". They are a little snug but, as with my other Frye boots, I expect they will loosen a bit as I break them in. I work in a wood shop and wore these all day was quite comfortable. My only issue with them is the zipper that runs up the back is not easy to zip up, it takes a fair amount of tugging. I ran a little wax paper over it and that helped a bit.
I LOVE Frye boots, but I am on my feel at work all day and cannot wear my heavier Fryes with the 2+ inch heels, etc. These are the perfect alternative. They have the perfect small heel so that you can feel the natural arch in your foot and shoe, and the leather is so soft and natural (even though the boots are red). Speaking of... I was afraid when I bought these that the red would be too vibrant, or that the distressing on the toe would look cheap, but the shade is perfect and the boots do not look cheap at all. The distressing on the toe is just enough. I also have a very wide foot at the ball of my foot, and I have pain when any show is too tight in the toe box, but I ordered an 8 (I am usually a 7.5 in sneakers and other shoes) and there is plenty of room before I have ebb stretched the leather. Great buy! Try to get them when Amazon offers a 20% shoe coupon!
