I love these boots. Very well made and good quality leather. The dark brown is a nice deep brown that goes with everything. I purchased both the regular and wide calf to compare, and although I was able to pull the regular boots on, they were a bit snug while the wide boots were perfect. I'm a size 6.5 and they are true to size with minimal break in needed. The soles are extremely comfortable. I'm 5'1 with 14.25-14.5 inch calves. The wide boots are only about a 1/2 inch wider than the regulars. They fit me well and I'm able to wear them with skinny jeans. I'm not sure if this is just with this boot, but the wide boots were slightly taller (about a 1/2 to 3/4 inch) than the regular boots, on me they hit about 2 inches below my knee which is perfect.
Angel choir. Beautiful boots that fit perfectly right out of the box. You extended calf ladies know what I'm talking about. The size 10 is just right for me; I have a medium width foot and low instep and will occasionally wear a 9.5 in flats and sandals. My calf circumference is about 17.5 and the boots fit, no problem (bear in mind that as the size goes up, the circumference on a boot goes up as well -- you generally gain about a quarter of an inch per size). As some others have noted, it would be nice if they were a bit taller. I think the ideal wearer for this cut is probably shorter than my 5'8", but this is a minor quibble for boots I hope to have forever.
Love these boots! They are the first boot I have ever found to fit my calves! My calves are 17", but then I am also short so my calves start lower than an average person, so finding boots to fit my legs has been an endless search. Well, I no longer have to keep looking! I usually wear between a 7 and 7.5 so I went with the 7.5 and they fit great. Normal socks will work, but I think really thick socks will be too much. So in love!
Okay, this is my 5th pair of Frye boots and about the 100th I have tried. I have wide calves and don't like to feel like my legs are being suffocated. I ordered these with the hope of them feeling comfy and slouching like they should, not like I stuffed them in there. Well, they are everything I hoped for! They fit me perfect, look great and finally, a pair of Frye boots that actually have a wide calf, as claimed! Bravo Frye!
These are beautiful boots, unfortunately "wide calf" is a bit of a overstatement, especially if you have a small foot in combination with a wide calf. I am sure for women in the 9-11 shoe size the circumference is fine due to the fact that it increases ¼" with every size, but for a 7½with a wide calf the extra ½" they give you with the "wide calf" version of these boots opposed to the regular version is just not enough. I could barely get my skinny jeans in with them. Getting my foot in the bottom portion was difficult, they also look much higher in the picture and ended up hitting me mid calf. Had the boots not been so expensive I may have kept them and dealt with the dissapointments, but for the price, that is not the case. They are going back and the search continues. My suggestion to Frye is make boots that are actually wide calf in every size not just the bigger ones, and in more varieties than two styles of boots.
