The first pair of boots I ordered, I had such a difficult time with the zipper. The zipper ended up breaking from pulling it. Took them back to the store and ordered a second pair. Again had difficulty pulling the zipper up. My husband was finally able to put the zipper up, but as I started to walk the buckles on the bottom of the boot would not stay buckled. I ended up returning this pair as well. As much as I loved them and wanted to keep them, there would be no way for me to be able to zip them without my husband. I also was struggling with the buckle and would assume the buckle would only get worse and not better with time.
I received these gorgeous boots and was so excited to put them on. The smell of real leather was a delight. I ordered a size 10 (which is my typical size) and tried them on with a regular pair of knit socks. I couldn't get my foot in. There's a nice long zipper at the back, which is one of the style features I loved, but it stops at the heel and that is where I had trouble. I couldn't get my foot into the foot area of the boot. After changing into knee hi nylons I was able to get into the boots but the width across my toes was also too tight. Sadly, I'll be returning these boots. The wide-calf style may do the trick, but I didn't see it offered in a size 10. Double sad face.
Beautiful boots! I have small calves and they for perfectly! True to size. Highly recommend!! Shipped fast!
I took a chance and purchased these boots online. I am a comfort shoe girl - Birkenstocks in summer, Uggs in winter. On a whim, I decided I wanted a pair of tall boots, so I started trying some on whenever I went shopping. I had no luck finding something I liked that felt good and comfortable. Having owned Frye boots in the past, I decided to try the Melissa. I am short, 5'2" with a calf size of 14 1/4. Since the regular calf size was 14", I ordered the wide calf. Well, they were so loose in the calf that they looked funny. I ordered the regular calf size, and they were a perfect fit! The regular calf boot also has a more shapely look and fit to it. A tiny bit snug, but I wore them around the house for a few days, and now I can wear my jeans tucked in with no problems zipping them up. The foot bed is so comfortable. I used the Frye conditioning cream on them last night, and it seems to have made the leather even softer! My husband used the conditioning cream on my leather Ugg boots this morning, and they look like brand new boots! I am VERY happy with my Melissa Zip Frye boots. I know that they will look good for many years.
