Greatest boots around - OK folks, these boots may feel a half size larger due to the heel slippage when new. This can easily be fixed by purchasing heel grippers which run around $3.00 per pair. Otherwise I recommend getting your size, not a half size smaller. The footbed is tight until broken in. If this is a real problem, any cobbler can stretch the boot. The leather sole can be slippery but again, can be fixed with "sure-steps" which are around $4.00 per pair. This boot will last you forever! I got my first pair in the mid 70s. I got my second pair a few months ago and am considering adding another color to my boot collection. If you're unsure of your size - try them on at a local store then come back to Zappos as they carry all the colors!
Frye Snow White Campus 14L - The color description says snow white but it's more of a muted white - not bright but easy on the eyes. The leather is thick throughout the shaft and foot. This is not a light weight boot - at least my size 9's weren't. This really is a beautiful pair of boots - classic look, quality craftsmanship, worth every penny. The front of the boot is a little tight at first as the leather is thick but soft. The shaft accommodates my not-so-skinny calves. I bought my true size and it works for me. I would recommend special socks (hiker’s socks - wool/synthetic) at first to wick away the moisture from the feet to cut down on the blisters while breaking these in... After that honeymoon period these boots will love your feet for a long time...
Don't go a 1/2 size down - I normally wear a 7 1/2 - 8 in any shoe and my foot is on the narrow side. I ordered a 7 1/2 in these and after three wearings I've determined that they have to go do another home. They're too small in the toe box and aren't stretching (the leather is quite thick and stiff). I'd recommend ordering your regular size.
LOVE these boots - The fit was perfect! I have a pair of the Frye Engineer boots in a size 9 (although I am a size 10), and was reluctant to order these in a size 10--but I'm glad I trusted the other reviews. The size 10 is perfect for this style! These are so comfy and I love the color! FRYE boots are so well made and last forever!
Awesome boots. My mom had these boots in college, got rid of them (blast!), but we don't share the same size anyway. I ordered a half-size down as recommended, and they fit perfectly. It was a little tricky getting one foot in at first, but since they're leather, they will stretch a bit. So excited to wear them this fall!
