they look real to me uhkiwi, but I am not really feeling them, they have far too much going on, from the perspex front to the funny straps, which would I assume go all the way up the leg (I do not think they would be flattering on).
^^ I wanted them but I didn't get a reply! bah...glad you got them
Thanks, uhkiwi! I have to admit that I did feel the tiniest bit guilty bidding on them because you were interested, so I only placed the opening bid amount.
I thought for SURE I'd get outbid (if not by you, by someone) because as that Zappos link shows, Frye boots are freaking EXPENSIVE. Great boots, but expensive! Yesterday I took them outside with a can of waterproofing spray and sprayed the devil out of them. I really don't care for suede b/c it gets dirty so easily, but the waterproof spray usually help.
By the way, I noticed the seller had this same boot in other sizes. Why don't you send them a message and see if they have any other Frye boots in 7.5. I can assure you they are the real deal, especially now that I've got them.
