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.

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- The cognac option seems to come in varying shades. I have seen some in a lighter tan shade and some (like mine) almost lean a medium shade of red-brown. The black pair have a glossier finish and dressier look then the cognac pair.
-SHAFT OPENING- The wide calf styles fit my 14.25" calf with jeans perfectly and do not look like wide calf boots on me. Regular width was impossible to pull on. I couldn't get my heel down in them.
-COMFORT- I have worn them to a convention where I walked around an exhibit hall for 6 hours with absolutely no discomfort, and I have worn them to work where I have to stand/walk around for 5 hours at a time.
-LEATHER- The leather gets softer over time and really molds to your foot. It is a great quality leather and you can tell it is genuine and top quality. The leather around the toes will eventually crease a bit where you bend them, especially if you are moving around a good bit in them, but this has not been something that bothers me. You can see the creases at the toe in my images. I used Frye's weatherproofing cream on the black pair and it did not change the color of the leather when applied. I have worn them in the rain a good number of times and have seen no change in the coloring or look of boots due to wet weather exposure.
-SIZING- I usually wear a 7.5 in closed toed shoes. I order an 8 in Frye boots and am able to wear varying thicknesses of socks comfortably. I would rather they be a little loose than too tight.
-SUMMARY- If you are asking yourself if they are worth the money, the answer is yes. I did watch out for deals and was able to find coupon codes each time I purchased but I would still have paid full price now that I own them and know how much I love them.
