I am so in love with this boot that I had to share! They were comfortable right out of the box, and I walked in them for hours. The leather is softer than some Frye boots, and the fit is between the slenderness of the Phillip Harness and the clunkiness of the regular Frye Harness boots, which feel like buckets on my narrow feet and calves. I wear an 8 or 8 1/2 in Frye, and the 8 1/2 fit perfectly with a little slip in the heel that feels just fine. Most importantly, I feel great wearing them - a little funky without trying too hard. The very square toe and harness detail are fun and the leather and quality are beautiful. They are my favorite boots.
LOVE these boots. Like some other reviewers said: these are hard to pull on initially. But I will say that once they are worn in a little (took me about a month), they fit like BUTTER. Actually, they feel like a pair of classic Dansko clogs - my foot rolls nicely through them and they have a little heel height, which I think is super comfortable. They loosen up A LOT after you've worn them; these aren't shoes for casual wearing every now and then, since they take so much time to break in. But I wore these every day last winter (in Iowa snow) and couldn't be happier with them. Add a pair of wool socks on super cold days and they stay super warm.
Gorgeous boots. Surprisingly comfortable right out of the box. I originally ordered my usual size, 8.5, based on other reviews, but they were too big unless I wore very thick socks, something I don't want to do here in California. So I exchanged them for an 8, which fit. The shaft is fairly narrow, which is good for me as I have rather skinny calves and the boots don't stick out excessively. But still they are wide enough to tuck in my jeans and to stick a hand down in the boots to straighten out my jeans. I got the taupe, which is really more of a rich brown, and I really like the color. I am very happy with my purchase!
I've loved Frye boot for years, but have always had a little trouble with fit because my feet lean toward the narrow side and my calves are slightly smaller than average. These boots feel like they were made for me. I ordered them in a 10 (my normal size) and they fit perfectly. If your story is anything like mine, do yourself a favor and get these boots!
