Frye Melissa Military Tall Reviews:


These Melissa Military boots are Frye with flare - all you expect from Frye with a soup on of unique. Buy them! In the interest of full disclosure, let me recap my experience. (1) The smell of fine leather out of the box intoxicates. The feel of the leather soothes the fingertips. (2) I ordered them in antique brown, a rich deep color that I wear with earthy colours, but they pair splendidly with my largely black wardrobe too. (3) The inside zipper slides all the way to your instep, making them easy to get on and off. (3) The saucy buttons running down the sides add statement - even give a nod to Steampunk - but the boots are sufficiently understated for work. Drawbacks: Sizing. (1) I am 5'8", not athletic, but never considered my calves large. These boots drove me to a tape measure. Sure 'nough, they're "big" - 15.5 inches. And yep. Initially these boots were hard to zip up all the way. But I adored them. So I did something radical that may appall some readers: I doused the upper shafts with rubbing alcohol, inside and out. Then zipped those babies up, and cleaned house in them. Now they zip up easily over my (apparently) chunky calves and accommodate leggings and skinny jeans tucked inside. (2) I wear an American 8, but usually am more comfortable in a European 38 (instead of a 39 - high instep). I ordered these boots in an 8; I wish I'd gotten them in. 7.5. They look a bit long when I look down at my feet but they look so fine, I'm over it! Get a notion about how these boots fit and look from other customers' reviews. Make your sizing decisions, AND BUY THESE BOOTS! It's been a tough winter a we all deserve a little indulgence. :-)

I received these a few weeks ago and at first wasn't overly impressed compared to the other 6 pairs of Frye boots in my closet. But I kept looking at them, trying them on, and looking at them some more. The more I looked and tried, the better I liked them. I'm wearing them for the first time today and they are really wonderful! They fit perfectly right out of the box. I have a 6.5 narrow foot and slim calves. The foot fits perfectly and the shaft fits my calves just right with room for skinnies. No gaps! Got them in the black and love the silver studs and silver zipper, which works easily and smoothly. Very comfortable! The only thing I would change would be the sole - wish it was a rubber lug sole like other Fryes. But overall, a must-have for slim calves!

I purchased these for my wife. (So I can't comment about comfort.) These boots are the real deal--highest quality leather, soft and strong. Soles are leather (these are genuine cowboy/riding boots.) Buttons are solid metal. I think they look great on her. I had to buy her a half size larger than her normal size (hurray for Zappos return/replace policy.)

These are beautiful boots. I usually get size 9 1/2, and they fit nicely, (better than the 9's). I've looked for these boots everywhere. Frye's are pricey, but should last for many years. I am an elementary teacher, (on my feet 10 hours a day), with narrow feet. I think they'll be great with a skirt or pants.

These boots are so comfy, so stylish - great right out of box. I've had so many compliments on this boot. The more you wear them the softer they get. I got them in black leather. Is soft, true to size, well worth the money.
