I originally purchased the Frye Paige boots but changed my mind and decided on the Dorados instead. Zappos's return and exchange service is super easy and fast! Their customer service is the best and always conveniently available. I ordered the blk antique burnished color in a half size smaller than my normal size, and they're very snug and tight around the toes. I would order your true size. No problems putting the boots on or pulling them off. The calf circumference and shaft is pretty wide and long. I'm 5'7, and they hit right under my knees. There's still room in the calf area, and I have average to athletic size calves. There is heel slippage, but that can easily be fixed with some inserts. Overall the boots are gorgeous, and the craftsmanship and leather is of high durable quality that I know will last forever. A classic riding boot that will never go out of style. Love the added lugs on the bottom too for that extra grip when it comes time for snow and ice! Buy it!
These are beautiful and light. I am 5'8 and have athletic calves. I wear size 8. These allow me to tuck pants inside. The height of the boot is amazingly slimming and regal. They make otherwise very casual clothes into a dashing statement. I plan to wear them regularly with skirts also since the lug sole is not clunky and the leather is fine. So, yes, these are wildly expensive but they provide a special pizazz that is worth it. I am so pleased since I love boots. The Smoke Brush Off is like a dark weathered metallic bronze. They are comfortable. I had not been able to wear Frye with comfort before. I can wear tights or medium weight socks. The foot bed is not overly narrow. They pull on smoothly and with no struggle.
I love these boots! Even though they are not listed as wide calf, they fit my wide calf. I searched by circumference! And for those who complained about the heel moving up and down, in real western boots that is how it is supposed to feel, it should allow your foot to move like it would move when wearing flip flops! Zappos is the best!
Beautiful! More rugged looking than the Dorado Riding, leather is thicker but still very soft. I'm 6' tall and this size 11 boot hits my kneecap, 19” tall from floor. I have a high instep but not a problem in getting my foot in. But there is heel slippage when I walk - not sure how to fix that. They might be going back. :(
I liked everything about this boot except for the polished red toe that stood out from the rest of the dark brown finish. It looked like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Frye Boot. I thought I would like the "burnished" finish, but the all-red toe just looks bizarre. I am exchanging these for the regular dark brown ones.
