This boot is a great value. I got a pair about three years ago, but the heels finally died, and I've been searching for a replacement for months. Yesterday, it occurred to me to try this trick again - the Youth 4 is equivalent to a man's 4, which is about a 6 1/2 to 7 in woman's, and coincidentally my very size. These boots are comfortable and really well made. The brown color looks much nicer in person. I am hoping the toe box stretches a bit with time, but it's leather, so it should. I need a nice-looking boot that doesn't kill my sensitive feet, and these absolutely fits the bill. Looks great with jeans and leggings. Zappos is the best; I tried two other boots before getting these!
I ordered these boots for my daughter 1 size bigger than her shoe size. They are a little big but are comfortable and she will be able to wear them through 2 winters. Frye boot is well made and very soft leather. A big price for a young girl but she will get a lot of use from them as they are a classical style that go with many outfits.
I like these boots, but the sizing is very hard to get right. I wear a women's 5½, which translates into a youth 4 according to all length measurements, but in this one boot style, I needed a youth 2½ to fit right! They're very nice though. Thank goodness for Zappos' wonderful policies, because I had to try several times to guess the right Fryes sizing.
I had a hard time deciding what size I needed, so I had a few boxes shipped to my house at different times. They all arrived the next day and I had no problem returning the ones that didn't fit. I was refunded immediately, too! Love Zappos!
