without trying them - I read every review out there before ordering a 9. I "normally" wear a size 8.5 in round-toed, North American made footwear (which is pretty hard to find these days - what is made in North America?), a 9 or 39 in items with a pointy toe, or made in Asia, which is so common these days, due to my fairly wide feet. In fact, I haven't bought anything smaller than a 9 in many years! I guess my feet are not as wide as I think though, because this Frye Engineer size 9 is VERY roomy. I wish I had ordered the 8.5 and not taken so seriously the warnings to size up. Better safe than sorry I guess, and I will not be returning them due to the cost of shipping (to Winnipeg Canada). I'm sure I can accomodate an insole and an extra sock or two in these - winter's coming you know - so all is not lost. Next time, I will have the confidence to order the size 8.5, I could possible even size down to an 8. So nerve-wracking buying shoes online, especially when you can't try them locally. I was only able to try the Frye harness in town before I bought, and this is quite a different shaped boot.
I was also slightly nervous about the shaft height of this boot, as I do have large calves, and can't even wear many zip up styles of boot because they just won't zip. No worries here however. For the record, I am 5'5" and a size 8-10 with a 15.5" calf.
I love the USA Frye line, and I had already had the campus 14l in banana, harness 8r, and the anniversary edition of the harness americana short. I love all of those but I really have a soft spot for red boots, and I've wanted a pair since I was 15.. I found these red engineer 12r boots on sale and I jumped on them.
The engineer boots are very different than my other Fryes; they run at least a half size small. I had to exchange for a bigger size and even then wondered if I needed a full size bigger. The break-in was miserable, truly miserable. I got blisters in different places and on both feet. I really felt like I had made a huge mistake, but suddenly, at about 2 weeks, they finally broke in. Next to contend with, was the nylon thread that was scratching my leg raw on the left boot. I took a flame to it and it melted away. It did singe the leather, but no one will ever see and best of all, it fixed the problem. Now they are like slippers, and I adore them. The rubber bottoms make them ideal for outdoorsy activities; my dog loves my red engineers because they mean it's time for his walk. I pair them with shorts and girly dresses and they garner me many compliments. After a few months, they were begging for some conditioning. I got the Frye brand leather treatment and vigorously set to work. The resulting red was completely different! Rich, deep and lovely. Just when I thought I couldn't love them any more!

They did not come in the FRYE box which put me off and then I could barely get my feet in them, and I own another pair of FRYE different style in size 11. Read morePublished 6 days ago by lin
Was a little nervous about what size to get. I decided to go up a half a size. They actually fit great. There is enough room for a heavier sock. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Jildotebo

I looked at every review I could find before I bought the Engineer 12R boot. Usually with shoes I am an 8 or 8 1/2 and I almost always size up to a 9 for boots. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Elizabeth
