So nice
After resisting to conform as everyone's been carrying these around lately, I finally gave in when I saw them in the beautiful tan color in real life. Upon receiving them, I thought the leather would be more buttery soft, but that is not to say the leather is not good quality. I suppose it's less prone to scratches this way. The bright blue and black polka dot silky lining is awesome contrasted to the tan leather. And I love that you can adjust the strap to 2 lengths. The diamond shaped strap snap hardware also add an elegant touch, and also the studs on the bottom and on the strap itself - rockstar without seeming to DIY. Lastly, the dust bag this came with was really cute and matched the bag's lining. I also thought it was funny how there was a random card included with a model looking guy's picture saying to call him in a handwritten font phone number - his name is Vincent.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

My first Fryes
I tried this on in person and fell in love, but I am in Canada and the store near me sells it for $150 more so I happily snapped this up during the Black Friday sale. However, once I received them, I was disappointed to realize the one from Shopbop is a shiny finish as opposed to the matte leather in the store. Nonetheless, they are well crafted boots. A bit stiff at first, but after a few wears with thick socks I can feel them breaking in already. Although I appreciate the slight non-slip treaded sole, it is not enough to keep me from slipping to my butt in our Canadian winters. I'd hate for the salt to ruin them anyway. Lookwise these are the best riding boots style I've found. Qualitywise, these are beautiful and timeless boots, but get them in matte black leather if you can. It's just less Santa Claus/ Mounted Police.
