What size would I be in the 8R Engineer boots? I normally wear 7.5 in most shoes but I am 7 in Fiorentini + Baker boots and a 7 in the Frye Harness boots. I have very narrow feet. I wanna order them online now but I really don't know which size to get.

Thanks for your help!

I ordered mine online too but I went to bloomingdales to try on and they had no engineers but I tried the harness there hoping they would fit about the same. They did. I almost always wear 8. 8.5 was too big. 8 was hard to get into, but once I was in them I had a little room. I could not get into 7.5 at all despite a lot of effort. So I would go with the 7 if i were your and that is what you wear in the harness. I'm a little scared to give the suggstion though, this is my first pair so I'm not the most experienced with Fryes. Harness and engineer fit me the same, but I ccan't promise they will fit you the same too.

Does anyone have pictures of themselves wearing the engineer boots and the sunny multi-strap (have they stopped making these?)?

Hi emailme! I've seen frye boots at Capezio, Ron White and Urban Outfitters so far but I'm sure they have them at other locations too. Little Burgandy also has Frye boots. I believe Ron White has the biggest selection though.

ugh frye boots. I'm so tired of seeing people wear them here. They are way too overpriced for what they are. A girl in one of my lecture classes spend $300 on them, and I couldn't believe it. I wouldn't even give 50 for them

and? Frye is a classic brand. And actually one of the cheaper leather boot makers. If you don't like her boots fair enough but they make more than one style.

Those studded Paige's sound interesting...

My Frye Engineers are about to go through their third winter. They're definitely not overpriced. Even though I got them for half price, I'd have no problem getting my next pair at full price considering how well they've held up.

this might sound stupid but does the leather get wrinkly with wear? i like smooth leather and not the "rugged" look.

also regarding to the price, i would say they are worth it. people say they last long (3 winters is long) so cost per wear is reasonable. theyre also made in the US so the quality is more superb than say china.

i think you are just tired of seeing them on everyone. its like death by association and when everyone has them they loose their "cool" quality.

I bought my first pair of Frye's a couple of days ago...the Chelsea boot in black leather. I wore them for the first time yesterday and they were so comfortable...no rubbing, no blisters, and the cushioned sole was fantastic.

Sorry for the gush but I'm so happy to have a pair of really comfortable boots...

glad to hear the chelsea boots fit well! I've been contemplating them!

And emailme. I think it depends on the boot whether or not the leather 'wrinkles' or slouches. I have the engineer's and the leather is pretty thick and sturdy so I haven't really experienced that
