I really like these boots. They look just as good if not better than they do in the pictures. I bought them for a new years party. I unfortunately did not end up keeping them. Maybe its just because I have skinny legs, being that I am very tall. But after wearing them for a while, I found that the zipper rubbed against the inside of my leg. Even with socks, I was left with a blistered cut on the inside of my leg. I'm not sure if the shoe should be to blame, or the skinny legs I was cursed with. Either way, I recommend checking these out, they are very nice boots, and I wish they had worked out for me. Just check and make sure you wont have the same issue I did with the zipper. I should also note that Zappos has the absolute best customer service out there. And they allowed me a courtesy one time only return even though they were slightly worn. They will be my only source for new footwear in the foreseen future.
Just got these delivered yesterday. Which, seriously, Zappos, can you please stop exceeding my expectations? Overnight delivery for no charge. It makes all of my other online shopping experiences suck in comparison. Anyway, these boots are amazing. You get what you pay for here folks. Amazing quality, amazing leather, and the fit is ridiculous. Seriously the most comfortable pair of boots I own. And for the record, I take my boots seriously. Have a pair of To Boots that are nice but nothing compared to these. If you want the real deal then buy some Frye's. I wear a 10-10.5 and order the 10 and it was dead on perfect fit. Also, maybe (if your odd) it would be a turn off but the leather is so good that you can smell it when you wear them. Which if you are like me enjoy. Sure it will fade shortly. In summary these are a kick ass pair of boots for jeans. I wear them when I ride and they are perfect. Drop the clams on them, you won't be disappointed.
"Zappos came through again." I ordered a pair of these Phillip Inside Zip boots and am I pleased. Very glad I went with the Frye boots, the fit is unbelievable. These boots fit like a glove, very soft leather and great looking. I normally wear a size 11, but ordered a size 10-1/2, as the reviews had mentioned. I'm wearing these everyday. Can't wait to order again.
Ordered these for my son who will be graduating college and it is time to get out of the tennis shoes! Run a size larger as we ordered his usual size 10.5 and a 10 from the reviews. Ended up with a 9.5. He loves them, especially with the side zip. Recommend wearing barefoot.
