I am still absolutely in love with these boots. They're comfortable and, with the help of Frye's boot polish, still looking fantastic. Women literally stop me to ask who makes them nearly every time I have them on. They dress up (or down) any outfit effortlessly and are easily the kicks I wear most often.
Perfect. Perfect. Perfect.
ORIGINAL REVIEW 11/15/11
I have been pining for good riding boots for years. I kept purchasing pairs under $100, and by the end of the season each one was shot. I was tired of just wasting money but wasn't sure I was ready to buy $300+ boots online. I prowled the internet for weeks just to be sure I was getting the best deal.
SIZE: The sizing on these also gave me pause. Some ladies are encouraging going up a size, others say they run large. I think it varies with the boot style. I had originally ordered the Cavalry boot in a 5.5 and, while it was snug, I knew that they'd loosen up over time and would have fit beautifully. However, the style was too angular for my taste and I returned them. So I went to a store to actually look at the boots in person. The displays are so seductive! Every lady in the store had her own story about Frye boots. Some of them had purchased pairs in the 1970's that they're still wearing today! I realized that the price of each pair reflects the outstanding attention paid to every detail.
I discovered that I preferred a size 6 in the Melissa button boot. I'm traditionally anywhere from a 5.5-6 with a very high arch and "baby" bunions. The 6 gives room for my poor mangled feet without feeling like I'm swimming in them. They're a little tight to get on, but I expect as much from a high-quality zipper-less boot.Read more ›
Then it happened. These boots showed up in my cart with a note saying the price had been reduced! My head started to spin and my heart started to beat out of my chest! TODAY WAS "SOME DAY"! The price had indeed been reduced on all three pairs in had in my cart.
Light Brown Brush Off Leather $148.34
Black Soft Vintage Leather $159.47
Dark Brown Antique Soft Full Grain Leather $159.47
$467.28 for three pair of Frye boots is a temptation I could not withstand. I bought all three. Don't judge me.
The week it took them to arrive (though on time) seemed like an eternity. When I came home from work to find them waiting my porch I couldn't wait to rip open the boxes! I was thrilled!
A few things though:
1. The Light Brown Brush Off Leather was much browner than the picture (which looked really tan to me), but that was a plus, I actually liked it way better this way and consider these to be my favorite. Another thing, the soles looked scrapped, like they had been worn outside. not much, but definitely worn more than just a "try on". But nothing earth shattering, and if that is the reason i got the discount, then totally worth it. Also, they didn't have the packaging the other two had. There was no leg insert or tissue paper stuffed in the toe of this pair. Whatever. If you didn't see the sole, you would swear they were brand new.
2. The Black Soft Vintage Leather pair were great. No scuffs, but these also appeared to be missing some original packaging.Read more ›
Just recieved the cognac vintage leather boots in the mail. They came with a complimentary coating of wax or something on the toe portion. Had a white haze that I had to rub off with a soft cloth. Also the boots had the appearance of being worn. I know they hadn't been because there were not any scuffs on the soles. They just had the creases in the leather like they have been worn for a couple weeks.Read more ›

If you have wide feet, I would suggest that you don't buy it. I have narrow feet and it's still a little snug :) but overall I like them alot. I've gotten many compliments.Published 16 months ago by JOY
I returned these, but I wish I had not. They were a little tight on my calves, but the material was beautiful and I'm sure I could have stretched them out a bit. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Badge Bunny
