Really nice boots, with the usual Frye quality leather and durability. However, the size was not right for me. I usually wear an 8, so I ordered the boots in this size. 8 was too big, and slipped in the heel, even with thick socks and an insert. Swapped them for a 7.5, which was much closer to the mark, but alas, way too tight around the instep, even with my thinnest socks. The calf was too wide for me too, but I have skinny shanks. Calf would be fine with jeans tucked in, but not with a dress. I could not have kept them on long enough to stretch them or break them in. If you are an 8, try a half-size down. Seems to work for most people, just not for me. They are lovely boots.
