Rated 4 out of 5Â by FPKaraK PERFECT VINTAGE BOOT - but TIGHT - READ
I LOVE THESE BOOTS! If you are on the fence I would def leap over! BUT make sure you know these fit NOTHING LIKE THE BROWN OR CLASSIC BLACK. MUCH MORE STIFF AND TIGHT IN THE ANKLE. Frye's are always well worth the money. They are strong, sturdy, always well made and have the most amazing leather smell. I have had pairs last me over 5 years and still look brand new. I had to get these because of how awesome the washes were and how funky they look. I am always afraid of scuffing my shoes up and marking and ruining them. NO ISSUE HERE! The vintage-y look these have cover it right up and in fact add to the character! It is friggin' awesome! Just make sure you keep it in mind they are not all going to look the same. My sister got a pair and hers were super rugged looking where as mine are not.
Sizing - before taking the plunge on these price boots I wanted to get all the information I could before I purchased these online. I read reviews from 5 different sites. All were very, very mixed. Lots said to size up. THANK GAWD I was able to try them on in a department store. They did not run small at all. In fact, I could have gone down a half size. These boots are very large. ***HOWEVER*** and here is the HUGE ***BUT*** I said there is a big big but ...LOL. as everyone has mentioned the ankle area is soooooooo tight. Unless you have toothpick feet your not getting your foot in there. I mean, I have very narrow feet but even I was wrestling with getting these on. Every time I wear them I PRAY I do not have to take them off for fear of not being able to get them back on. I am guessing they are like this due to the fact they are large and very heavy. I am normally a 7/5 and the 7.5 def fit loose. I could have opted for a 7 even but I like to wear lots of the funk FP socks. Problem with the sizing down is if you have narrow enough feet for these the size up is going to be TOO BIG. The ankle is still the same. I read reviews for these on every site possible and they are all mixed. I saw TRUST YOUR GUT. Know your own foot. LOVE THESE def worth the money! I just hope I didn't make the mistake by not sizing DOWN! I have worn them MANY, MANY times and still have such problems with getting them on. If you can try these on you must. Once they are on they are PERFECT, COMFY and do not hurt my feet at all. They are HEAVENLY so the struggle makes it worth it. I just wish they fit like the classic Veronica's!

These boots are great. I would say they run 1/2 smaller than other frye boots.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Kate98 Beautiful but hard to get on
The picture is quite true to how they look. They are extremely comfortable and feel like they will last a long time too.
My only struggle with them is getting them on. I have thin ankles, but it is hard to get your foot past the ankle part of the boot. I have to pull quite a lot. That also means that I can only wear thin socks with them. No wool socks in the winter!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ts7 Most awesome boot EVER!!
When I first tried to get them on I was afraid I was going to have to send them back. But once I loosened the bottom buckle and used a trick I was taught when I was little.(Putting a plastic bag over my foot with a small hole in it) It slid right on. (The bag is pulled right out)they fit perfect and after a few wearings they slip right on.
I absolutely Love Them more than any other boots I own. I also ordered the Gratitude boot and these by far surpass them. I sent them back.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by roses_are_pink BEST BOOTS EVER!!!
The boots came as pictured, are beautiful in person and I get compliments on them everywhere I go. I am a size 7.5 and the boots fit true to size, though they are a bit hard to get on. I have blisters on my heels from wearing them so much but that is just the standard breaking in process. The leather on the boots are gorgeous and they look good with everything you wear. I could not be happier!!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Chelseagillster REALLY SNUG!!!!
I always wear a size 10 in these boots, and they take some SERIOUS EFFORT to put on. I have long skinny boney narrow feet and my arch wouldn't fit at all!! I am still wearing them adn tehy're comfortable to wear, and easy to get off, but getting on is seriously a pain in the a**
Rated 5 out of 5Â by electtralyte BUY!
These boots are seriously awesome! I got them in the light color. They look great either up or slouched down. The vintage look is perfect!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Angelxoxo My favorite Fryes!!
I was a little worried when I ordered these in my normal size (which is 7) after reading other reviews. I am so happy I didn't size up. They are hard to get on the first time and yes they will leave you with a blister (once), but after wearing them out to a concert and dancing in them that first time, they fit perfect. They stretched out and fit like a glove!! I did adjust the strap over the foot by making it bigger by one notch before I even tried to slide them on and yes they do even fit with socks. I have collected 6 pairs of Fryes over the last 10 years and I wear every single one of them still!! I do have to say tho these are my favorite. I love the stone color and I get compliments every where I go!! I would say they are true to size and if you are going to size up only go a half size because they will stretch a bit. If you have other Fryes that you have in a size that fits you do not size up just break them in with love:) Fryes are boots that will last a life time!!
