I read a lot of reviews before I decided to invest in these boots. I saw lots of good stuff and some worrisome things. I'll address the points I remember.
Calf size: my calves fit in these boots *exactly* (I got lucky, I guess). There was no squeezing of my calves and also not a bit of extra room. My calves are 40 cm / 15.75 inches around.
Boot height: I'm 5'8" tall. The boots came up to 2.25 inches beneath the bottom of the patella of my knee (the floating roundish bone) when sitting down, The boots are about 12.5 to 13 inches tall from the top of the bend in the foot. It's hard to get an exact measurement there, since it's just a gentle curve.
Boot size: I wear a US women's size 9.5 (medium width) usually. I got these in 9.5 and they fit exactly, while wearing a regular-thickness sock. I define regular thickness as more than those skinny dress/trouser socks and less than an athletic crew sock. The boots seemed neither wide nor narrow to my...
Just received these yesterday, and I am very happy. I bought the brown, antique soft full grain. I already had them in "Black antique soft full grain" in a 9.5 (I typically wear a 10), and I wear them all the time in the winter. So, I had to get them in brown. First, let me say, not all of us are blessed with nice full calf muscles. I am not. These boots are one of the few pairs I've ever been able to find that fit my calfs perfectly, and didn't have huge gaps that made my legs look silly. So, narrow calf girls, these are your boots.
After reading the reviews, I was very concerned about the quality. However, they came in their original box with the Frye certification. As soon as I received them, I compared them to the black pair I already owned. The quality and workmanship is excellent, and on par with my first pair. The fit is also the same (although I wish I needed a half size up because that would save me an additional $50). The zippers and buttons work just...
I recently bought a few different pairs of Frye boots, taking advantage of the low prices offered by Amazon warehouse. I already have four pair of Fryes and appreciate the quality leather and cute styling. In most shoes I'm between a 7.5 and 8, and I usually buy boots in size 8. This held true for my Fryes (except the Paiges, which run large and are perfect at size 7.5). I got the Melissa Button and two pair of Melissa Back Zip, all in smooth vintage leather. Having read horror stories on here about fakes, I wasn't thrilled with what I received. The smooth vintage leather was thin, stiff, and very shiny. One pair of the zip backs had glued-in Frye patches at the heel, which hit my instep at an awkward place and hurt. I like the taller, sleeker style of the zip backs, but was concerned as to whether they were authentic. I also got a pair of Phillip Riding- the right boot fits tighter, one boot (Antique leather) is smooth, one has elephant wrinkles. I realize the deals are...
