Additional Information

Product Features & Description

The unmistakable quality of Frye boots is what made them America's best footwear in 1863 and it is still what makes them the best footwear today. These boots are benchcrafted from premium full grain leather that will conform to your feet for a great fit. The unique tanning process was developed to promote a worn appearance - a look that goes great with anything. The 8 1/2" shaft is paired with the 1 1/2" heel to create a boot that brings all day comfort. This mid-calf engineer boots offers the same classic styling as the taller options, with adjustable buckled straps across the vamp and atop the shaft. From heritage style boots to newer styles that grow into old Frye classics, the look is ageless.

Product Reviews
Frye Women's Engineer 12R Boots is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second pair of Frye boots! I bought these two weeks ago after agonizing for months over what style of Frye's to get it this time. I already own a pair of the black harness model which I loved, however, I wanted something a bit different . They are everything I hoped they would be. So tough, so versatile, timelessly stylish- they scream quality. I wear them with skirts, dresses, pants and jeans. My only warning is they need to be broken in, it took these past two weeks for them to start loosening up. Also I love that they are Made in the USA, it feels good to support craftsmanship here at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Substantial Boots! I have a few Fryes and this has to be the most substantial pair I now own. Great support and extremely comfortable. The leather seems a bit thicker than my pair of Campus. I normally wear a 5.5 and ordered it in that size. If you want a boot to wear with thick socks, I'd go 1/2 a size up. I initially read all of the reviews about this being the, be all and end all of all boots and I'd have to say, they were all right about that! I also love the fact that they are made here in the U.S. If you want a pair of Fryes that will wow you, this is it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My End-of-the-World Boot I bought these boots as a gift to myself a couple of months ago. I have 3 other pairs of Fryes (harness short, harness americana, campus 14L) and love them, but I wanted a pair in red, and with a rubber sole. These boots definitely run 1/2 small. I had to order up so that the arch support fit my foot properly, and so I had room in the toe box. These boots were a nightmare to break in - took many walks with my dog and suffered some blisters on my heels - but once they broke in, they became my favorite pair. I feel like I can stomp around any terrain in them. I fondly call them my end-of-the-world boots because if I had to grab one pair of boots and live in them, these would be it. I love the burnt red; goes with so much of my stuff, even some pinks. The rubber soles add enough cushioning that my feet never get tired. I love the height of the 12r and think they go better with dresses than the 8r; the extra height adds some femininity to an otherwise tough-looking boot. I only buy made in America Fryes, and these are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first Frye boots! I bought these after seeing them on sale at 6pm in Dark Brown even though they called them Smoke. I'm a US 6.5 but ordered a 7 and I'm glad I did for a little extra wiggle room! Now, these are not high arch/instep friendly. But I'm going to get vamp stretchers and expand the area where the bottom buckle strap is so I can slip them on without a fight. The heel height is perfect and I love the not so obvious oil resistant and treaded soles. The color in person is beautiful. The photo I added doesn't do the color justice. The dark brown does not have any golden/orange tones like Frye shows in their photo. It really is a true neutral smoke brown. I absolutely love my first Frye boots. I don't know why I waited so long to get them!
