Frye Boots. Assistance appreciative.

Frye Boots. Assistance appreciative. Search provided me with one pertinent result (but looks to be female specific)

http://www.honestforum.com/other-bra...o-experts.html



Mark Nason's didn't work out. Now debating between Kenneth Coles and Frye Boots at the moment. I would like any "experts" to give me some information regarding proper sizing on Frye boots.

Size up or down from "normal."

By "normal," please define what type of shoes you are basing them on. Thanks.

last time i tried frye's, the best fit was 1/2 size down from my normal shoe size. i am basing that on the fact that i have 15 or so pairs of shoes in US size 10 (or equivalent), and chucks in size 9 - which are known to run a size large.

however, if they're a leather harness boot, the width and the toes should be comfortable-to-snug and ankle should be a little loose at the beginning. this will even out as the boot breaks in and conforms to your foot.

i have to say that unless you are going for the top of the line kenneth cole's to skip them due to serious quality issues. in fact, my top of the line kenneth cole boots have very nice suede uppers, but the sole is total shit... was getting torn up from just walking on pavement faster than any leather soled shoe i've owned.

(A) Two pairs of Frye's are on my potential acquisition-to-try list.

(B) Any specific pair (any brand) from the following pages might be a relatively high quality candidate?

(C) From the limited information presented, Frye's are reliable and quality well made shoes. Sigmatic or someone confirm. Thanks.

(D) I was considering the following KC's. "Top of the line" or junk? (They're actually on their way, I just need to decide. No harm done when shipping is free both ways)
-Westward
-Do Tell
-Quick Draw
-Genuine

Yes. I have (too) many pairs and the quality is great for the price and once they are broken in, they are usually quite comfortable to wear.

I'm a girl, obviously, so I don't know how helpful I'll be... I wear a 7.5 or 8 in shoe size and size 8 Fryes fit me best, IMO. I do not size down, but I don't like my shoes- especially boots- to fit tight. And if Fryes are too tight, they are horribly uncomfortable to wear.
