Not only do these fit her perfectly, but the quality, fit and finish of these boots is great!
Some have complained about the fit of these boots, but that's the nature of this old school style cow boot.
These fit great and were very comfortable.

Product Description

A squared toe and brushed-metal harness detail lend rough-and-ready charm to this supple leather boot.

The Harness boot from Frye is a classic with some seriously rugged character. The quality leather complements the look of its timeless shape, while the studded leather strap at the ankle provides a hint of urban style.

    These boots are the highest quality and best fitting boots I've ever had the pleasure of owning. I bought the Tan color in a size 10, originally, but had to return them for a size 11 because there wasn't enough room in the toe box. By going from a 10 to an 11, I gained about a half inch in foot length and about a 1/4 inch on either side of the foot so I had more room for my toes. There was also more room in the calf. My feet aren't wide but my calves are. I'm normally a size 11 in running shoes and a size 10-11 in dress shoes, and the 11 fits great. The 10 was VERY difficult to get on, and I could only wear them with very thin socks. I could tell just by walking around my apartment that they were too small.

    Beware of other reviews that tell you to buy 1/2 size down. I can imagine those individuals were looking for a snugger fit, and may have narrower feet, but I was looking for comfort. I usually wear boots for fall and winter, and knew I wanted to be able to wear a thicker sock, plus some kind of cushion insole for added comfort. I can do that with the size 11. I'm just over 5'8", athletic build, huge calves (17.5" at the widest part) and the 12R fits just fine -- the boot shaft ends before the fullest part of the calf. For the size 11's the boot shaft circumference is about 16 3/4 inches, hits at mid-lower calf, and I still have about an inch of room to tuck in jeans.

    TIPS FOR SIZING: When I first got the 10's they were a bit snug, but I thought they would mold to my foot. However, I then read a lot of information about the way western boots are supposed to fit. I had pressure on my pinkie toes and the boots were very difficult to get on, even after pulling them on and off a few times.

    Size: 8.5 B(M) USColor: Tan Crazy Horse
    Bought these in my regular size, which gives a "roomy" fit. Considered getting a size smaller, but felt it would be too tight on my bunions, and also felt I wouldn't be able to wear a decent-weight sock. They are breaking in beautifully. My husband (who knows about stuff like this) explained to me that the sliding in the heel was the proper fit and would stop as the boots were broken in (he was right!). He also said that if the boot is snug in the heel when you try it on, it is not a proper fit. Also, the tan color is a beautiful distressed leather.

    I love my Frye boots! I own several pairs of the 12R Harness boots and they are so comfortable. They do run a little big, so I always order a half size down (I generally wear an 8, but in Frye boots I order a 7.5), but I have also found that are a little narrow around the toe area. I have narrow feet to begin with, so if you have wider feet, you may run into some trouble.

    If your boots are tight in a couple of areas, I will also suggest getting your boots professionally stretched by a cobbler. I live in a rather remote mountain town that doesn't have a shoe repair shop, so I bought a wooden shoe stretcher and some spray to stretch out the few spots that were tight. It worked really well and now I have room for all of my toes so that they aren't squished.

    These boots look great with everything - jeans, corduroy pants and long skirts especially. If you are looking for some boots with a little attitude, I highly recommend them!

    Size: 9 B(M) USColor: Dark Brown Old Town Verified Purchase
    I don't normally leave reviews but I feel that I have to leave one for these boots. I have been lusting after these boots for a long time. I'm always very leery about purchasing something so expensive for my feet online without the ability to try them on first. After reading some very misguided reviews on these boots I almost gave up. However, the price was just TOO GOOD for these! Based on another's positive review and a size/situation similar to mine, I took the plunge.
    First, the fit : wonderful. I am a size 9 and I ordered a size 9. I have another pair of Frye boots from a few years ago and those too are my size. I don't understand this advice to size up or down. The size 9 in these boots fit me perfectly. I have wide feet and little to no arches so my toes spread a little more. I find the room in the toe box to be just fine for my wide feet. Second, the calf fit. I'm always worried about calf fit on Fryes because I'm very athletic with muscular calves. There is PLENTY of room for your calves in these! I am able to wear these over jeans and still have a little wiggle room.
    Second, the look/style/color: I love the look of these so much. The picture is slightly misleading though. In the picture for the dark brown color that I ordered, there are touches of a golden brown color. The boots in person are just straight up dark brown with light distressed marks here and there. I'm happy with the color though. They look really good in person and will age well.
    Overall, I have not taken these off of my feet since I got them! They are so comfortable right out of the box. No breaking in necessary. This is very different from my Frye Campus boots which took a long time to stretch out and feel good.
    Also, I highly recommend the Frye conditioning cream for your boots.

    I purchased my boots in brown from Nordstroms (on a whim, and just before my wallet was stolen)! I vowed to wear the boots every day until all my accounts were settled and I had all my new id's in. Here's a summary.

    Day 1 consisted of running my hands over the soft leather and admiring the buckles all day.
    Day 2 was a little painful- I was on my feet all day, and I have high arches. I remedied this by adding insoles (they remain to this day!).
    Days 3=7 was also painful. The seam just above the bucks was getting worn in to my ankle, and caused some sore spots. I rubbed a little oil in soften it a bit more, and wore thick socks.

    After two weeks, the shoes were fully broken in, and my satisfaction took off. I wear them with everything. I get many compliments (from men and women). I need to get the pads on the base of the heels replaced, since they did fall off (these are consumable, in my opinion), and would highly recommend insoles, especially if you also have high arches. I wore these for six months straight, and only wore something else when my Frye Campus boots came in. They have a lovely patina now, and I'm sure I'll be wearing them for many years.
