Quality Chelsea boot - nice looking & comfortable. Mine were a bit narrow but are fine after a couple hours of stretching. Padding & support is very thin, like a true dress shoe (but this boot isn't all that dressy). A black Superfeet insole fixes the arch support & cushioning issues perfectly. The leather half-insole curled on mine like another reviewer but this just made it easier to rip it out & replace it with a real insole. The shoe's construction is solid.
Very comfortable, especially once worn and broken in. Little tight at first to slide on but easily stretch. Only complaint is the insole. When you slide your feet out, it rolls up as if the glue doesn't stick. Have 3 pair of Frye's, 2 of which I slide into, both have this issue.
Worth the money - These boots are very comfortable and very stylish, I feel so sophisticated and classy when wearing these boots. I bought them in brown and I am so glad I did. These are my first pair of Fryes and I did not expect them to be so well made.
True to fit for me. This is a dress boot that can be easily worn casually, as well. The quality of construction is excellent and they are comfortable for walking, even though the support is nothing like a walking-shoe. Worth the price, excellent workmanship from Frye, my favorite boot company.
