5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Birthday to Me, January 15, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: FRYE Women's Harness 12R Boot (Apparel)
I heard once that if a pair of shoes isn't comfortable the minute you put them on your feet, they're never going to be. That the "breaking in" process doesn't really exist. I'm not sure whether I subscribe to that, but I will say that these boots were comfy from the first minute I put them on. That being said, it took a while to actually get them on. I can not wear socks with them; the friction of the sock rubbing against the suede interior creates a problem that can only be fixed (in my case at least) with naked feet. I think a trouser sock may work, but I don't have any to test that theory on. Also- I bought the distressed brown, love the color, but it's not nearly as dark as the picture would let you think. It looks more like the color 'tan' on the site. I'm extremely happy, but I want to make note of the color differences between reality and photography. It's extreme in this case. The distressed portion of the boot seems to be mainly in the shaft, it's very supple. The remainder of the boot looks, and is, much less flexible which I believe contributed to my having difficulty getting them on. There are reviews out there that state that there's plenty of room to tuck in skinny jeans, "and that's saying something because I have large calves". I was excited to read this because I too have large calves. I do not, however think there will be enough room to tuck in skinny jeans. I wore them last night with leggings, and that worked, but I'm skeptical about there being enough room for denim in my case. Word to the wise- MEASURE your calf before you order. The shaft height seems to begin at the top of the foot, 12" from the ankle is the top of the boot. Measure if 12" from your ankle and measure around your leg. If it's 16" or under, you're golden. Otherwise, these are going to scrunch a little. But I think that'd still be cute, because these boots are so gorgeous. I usually wear a 10, I bought a 10. I'd tried these on in a shoe store before buying on Amazon and found out that I can't get the 9.5 on (remember how hard it was to get the 10 on), I agree with the other reviewers that a half size smaller than normal size would probably fit better, but I know that for me personally I'd never be able to get them on to find out whether I'm right. So- with all that being said, if you love them and you've been lusting after them for years like I had been, rest assured that you're making a good purchase. You truly will love your Frye boots.
