Frye 'Melissa Button' Boot (Extended Calf)
Beautiful, Great Fitting Boot!!!
I have very large calves (17 in) and was a bit nervous ordering this boot (but thankfully Nordstrom has a great return policy). The boots fit great, they are a bit snug when you first put them on but stretch out nicely and mold to your leg. The are slightly wide around the ankle, but not nearly as bad as some other wide calf boots I've tried. i can wear these boots with leggings or skinny jeans. They are great and the leather is absolutely beautiful! I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a stylish boot, who has wide calves.
Not a Wide Calf
Oh I should have listened to many of the other reviews. Cute boot, the foot size seemed true to size ( I wear a size 6). This is not an extended calf. I was hoping this Frye style would work for me since I was looking for something a little more dressier than the Frye Veronica Slouch Extended Calf, which by the way fits my calf and I can wear leggings. I may stretch them a bit so I can get my skinny jeans tucked in too. Please Frye, make a true extended calf boot for us gals with larger calves. Unfortunately Nordstrom, this boot is being returned.
Love the boots... BUT
I love my size 8 1/2 boots in Black, recieved them last Thursday, however, I wore them once and it was a perfect fit. Towards the end of the day I noticed the boots stretched a little. As a result, it became uncomfortable for me to walk in them. My baby toe on both sides of my feet began to hurt as my feet were rubbing around in the boot. I planning on wear a extra pair of socks to see if the fit is better. Also, dont wear the boot in wet weather. After it rained I went outside and notice the sole of my boot changed a little so if I plan to keep them Im going to a shop shop and it a seal put on the sole to protect them.
Should be perfect after broken in
I bought the extended-calf Fryes because I wanted to be able to wear them with jeans... and with that said, the extended-calf in these boots works perfectly for that purpose. However, since the boots are pull-ons, I have trouble getting my foot in past the ankle joint of the boot. Although, I think that with a little wearing them in, this issue should resolve itself. But the boots are otherwise awesome. Super comfortable, and a great color.
