I wanted to keep my affinity for brightly colored shoes, so I opted for these boots in an Eggplant hue. They're dark purple with tanned heel wedges and a few areas of casual scuff for a well-worn but still beautiful not-trying-too-hard appearance. For someone who's never been a cowgirl, the Frye Carson Shortie Boot makes me look like a professional and fashionable rodeo lover. I've received numerous compliments about these boots from people attending the rodeo and in the general fair circuit. I've even suggested them as comfortable and rodeo-ready to a few of the girls who do the show-riding!
As far as comfort is concerned, I'm of the mind that if the shoes don't give me blisters, they're amazing already. The Frye Carson Shortie Boot has caused me 0 discomfort, allowing me to talk across rough and tumble terrain without taking a stumble. The cute little emblem on the back heel is also a testament to my newfound love for all things western -- complete with little bull horns. As a size 6, it's hard for me to find a pair of shoes that fit "true to size" but these surprised me with their reliability and snug fit. If anything ever happens between my cowboy and me, I'm definitely keeping the boots!
