Frye 'Melissa Trapunto' Boot
I LOVE these boots! I have been waiting for them to pop up at Nordstrom online in my size (8) and preferred color (saddle)! When they did, I snapped them up immediately. I received them last Monday and I have worn them literally for at least part of my day every day since. They're beautiful, comfortable and HIGH quality.
Despite the reviews I bought these 1/2 size larger than my normal shoe size (only cause they only had a 9.5 and no 9) Too my delight they fit pretty well - if anything I can wear a thicker sock with them. They are slouchy as implied by other reviewers but the leather is amazing. As soon as you open the box it hits you!! I like the look of them a lot I just hope they don't slouch too much over time. I purchased them in black and I think/hope I will be enjoying them for years to come!
I read all the reviews for these boots, trying to decide if I should go for it. The reviews were very helpful so I knew what to expect. I went ahead and ordered a pair and I must say I found the boots absolutely gorgeous. I was looking for a pull on with no zippers. Frye makes the best boots I know from experience, I still have a pair from at least 10 years ago. I did find it hard to pull on at first but with time the leather will loosen up. I'm 5'3 1/2 104 lbs, I have small calves so they are a bit too big around the calf area but I like that look. They are true to size in my case, size 6M. It hits me just below my knees, perfect with skinny jeans or tights and a skirt. I'm looking forward to years of wear, they are so comfortable and looks fantastic.
DO NOT PURCHASE
These boots were on sale, so I decided that I would purchase a pair. I recently bought the Melissa Button boots by Frye and I absolutely loved them, but when I received the Melissa Trapunto boots, I was beyond disappointed. I did not like the way that the leather looked or how they fit. They looked cheap and were huge in the calves. I would not recommend purchasing these boots, and I will definitely be returning them!!! Don't waste your money.
