Thank you for your feedback.
They fit very well as expected and are now a wardrobe staple!
I'm very picky about the shape of the toe, and these boots are exactly right, not too round nor too pointed.
Since they fit perfectly and are of such high quality I know I'll be wearing them for may years.

Product Description

The Frye Company is the oldest continuously operated shoe company in the United States. Founded in 1863 by John A. Frye, a well-to-do shoemaker from England, and family-run until 1945, Frye products have a long and illustrious history. Frye boots were worn by soldiers on both sides of America's Civil War, soldiers in the Spanish-American war, and by Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders. When home-steading drew adventurous New England families to the West during the mid and late 1800's many of the pioneers wore Frye Boots for the long journey. Today Frye remains true to its roots with its line of heritage boots, but continues to innovate as it introduces chic new handbags, pumps, and sandals to its collection.

Their roots firmly planted in history, our Melissa Button boots are timeless and just as fashionable today as they've ever been. Wide calf style available, Melissa Button Wide. Glazed vintage leather upperLeather linedLeather outsoleSize and Fit14" shaft height14" shafti circumference1" heel

    I have 17" solid muscle dancer's calves, so finding boots that fit in the calf but don't bunch around the ankle is hard... and let's face it - this season is Riding Boot Crazy Town, with every manufacturer from here to the moon making their own version. Frye, luckily, has had quite some time to perfect their riding boots, and are known to equestrians everywhere. The Melissa Button Extended Calf Boot is more dainty than her counterpart, the FRYE Women's Veronica Slouch 77609 Knee-High Boot, and is very simple in lines and form. They are slightly taller than the Veronica Slouch, but do not go all the way up to the knee, and have a V-shape similar to a cowboy boot in the front top of the shaft detail, with two loops at the sides to help you pull them on. Low heeled and built for comfort, these have a small amount of arch support in the foot bed, if that's something you need, but honestly, it feels more like a reinforcement support for the stirrups if you ride. They are slimmer than the Veronica Slouch, which is more bulky and a bit biker-casual. The Extended Calf is also slightly tight on me, right leg in particular, but this can be loosened up with a professional shoe-stretch at your local cobbler. They don't bother my bunions...yet. These are also leather-lined, which I prefer over the Veronica Slouch. Make sure you purchase the "extended" selection with your color, or you will get the normal size shaft. If you are trying to decide (because it's not like we have many choices in the wide-calf or extended-calf boot market) between the Melissa Button Boot and the Veronica Slouch, Melissa is more sleek, more work appropriate, and also functions well as riding a boot.Read more ›

    Color Name: Black Brush Off LeatherSize Name: 9.5 B(M) US Verified Purchase
    Season after season I have been waiting to find the perfect "riding boot" only to be disappointed by styling or quality. I have to admit it would take a special piece of footwear for me to spend close to $300. That said, these boots are what I've been holding out for!

    I got the Melissa Button Boot in Black, in my normal size, and was thrilled when they fit perfectly, even with a nice tapered toe. The tapered toe and plain shaft (no ugly zipper!) give them a beautiful classic look, and the leather looks like with proper care it will only get better over the years. There is a pleasant leathery smell when you open the box, not a rubber or chemical smell.

    To address the issues other people have seen:
    -Yes the soles are smooth out of the box. But just trying them on and walking on some asphalt scored them up well enough for my tastes (although there is no ice or snow here to worry about).
    -The shaft is a little snug on me, but I have larger than average muscular calves, and the boots still look flattering, and more tailored compared to having a loose shaft. I wouldn't be able to fit normal jeans in there, but leggings or jean leggings will fit fine.
    -Also I agree that these may need an insole insert if you plan on wearing them for walking around or standing a lot.
    -I didn't have a hard time sliding them on, the loops at the top of the shaft are very sturdy and worked perfectly fo their intended purpose. Removal was a breeze, I've had shorter boots that were harder to remove than these.

    Hopefully that helps, I know I read all these reviews carefully before ordering, I'm glad I went ahead and did it and am very happy with my purchase.

    Color Name: Dark Brown Soft Vintage LeatherSize Name: 8 B(M) US Verified Purchase
    While I realize that this is a product review, I would also like to share my experience with Amazon so that no one has to go through what I did. As far as the boots go, they are great, as long as you can actually get the correct boots from Amazon. When I finally did receive the correct boots from Amazon I weather proofed them using the Frye conditioning cream, and wore them around to break them in.

    The best advice I can give is find out the exact name of the color that you want first, and then order from Amazon based on the name of the color, rather than the picture.

    I originally ordered the "Dark Brown Brush off Leather" color. It was a dark chocolate colored boot in the picture. What I received were lighter milk chocolate colored boots. At the time I was pretty disappointed, but I figured it was an honest mistake on Amazon's behalf, so I called customer service and spoke to a representative, who apologized and immediately ordered me another pair of the Dark Brown Brush off Leather and upgraded my shipping to one day shipping. She also emailed me a return label for the first pair. I received the 2nd pair of boots the next day, and they were the exact same ones as the first one. Clearly this wasn't a mistake of grabbing the wrong box, this was a mistake on their website of picture not matching the item received. This time I was a little more annoyed and concerned because the problem was in their system. I called Amazon to tell them I again received the wrong pair, and how I could prevent this from happening the 3rd time I ordered them. I explained the situation to a representative of Amazon CS, and told them about the issue on their website of having the wrong pictures listed with the color names.
