The one and only. Whether paired with faded jeans or a shift dress, this low-rider version of The Engineer is all attitude. Moto-inspired, this boot makes entrances, treads loudly and stirs up trouble. Made of greasy leather, this boot gets even better with age.

Engineer 8R is rated out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrea from Simply the best I own four different pairs from Frye and my charcoal grey engineer 8r will always be my true love. They go with everything and once you break them in they are awesome. They feel indestructible and look awesome with leggings, jeans of all kinds, dresses - name it. I debated over size and went with my true 8.5 and so glad I did. They were hard to get on at first but once they broke in, they were a dream. Also debated over color and find that the charcoal is the perfect neutral. There are so many replicas out there, buy the original. Worth every penny. Thanks for being the best Frye, you have a customer for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Storkdoc23 from Broke my heart I bought a pair three years ago. I had them nice and lived in, perfectly broken in. I wore them to clinic, to the OR (with boot covers of course) and out on the town. I must have delivered at least 180 babies while wearing (covered) these. Then tragedy struck. I left them in a cab in Dublin, Ireland almost a week ago now. There followed phone calls, memory jogs (I just know the driver's name was Liam Mc-something) and pleading, sadly, to no effect. Maybe some Irish person is wearing them now. I hope so. I hate to think of them out in the wide world alone. In any case, after a mourning period, I'm ordering another pair today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaniDee from Best boot ever owned I admit, I'm obsessed with Frye and have twelve pairs.... I had seen these years ago, and decided to buy the Veronica shortie.... that was my first mistake... the pictures do not do this boot justice... in the photos, it looks like it's clunky, and not feminine... but I finally got a pair of the engineer 8r, and it is a beautiful boot... true to size, comfortable right out of the box, extremely well made. This boot makes me feel like I can conquer the world... I loved my engineers so much in fact that I just ordered it in the black. Wish I would have gotten this boot years ago, I would have saved a ton of money. This boot goes with everything... skinny jeans, leggings, and dresses... my advice is to not hesitate in buying these.... they are totally worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cookie from Classic comfy boot I bought the charcoal in a size 8.5 (I am a 8.0-8.5 but due to my bunions, 8.5 in Fryes generally works for me). This sturdy boot looks awesome in charcoal with the subtle grey variations and it looks very cute with leggings, skirts and dresses. I've gotten compliments from strangers and friends on these boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MMINI from My favorite boots! I'm ashamed to admit that I am a Frye boot junkie and how many pairs I actually have! In the Engineer 8r I own the gaucho, the black, the plum (these are particularly gorgeous!) but my absolute favorite is the burnt red, so much so that I saw a pair on sale recently and bought them for fear that when my first pair wears out, Frye might not make them in the red. I have at least 10 styles of Frye, but these are the most comfortable and the perfect shape for my foot. I have wide feet and narrow heels and ankles. I take size 9 in Campus and Carson. 9.5 in Veronica, Paige and Melissa, but all my engineers are 10, I like them roomy with mid weight socks, never have had a blister or rub sport. Very comfortable! The leather in the black and gaucho is very similar: more stiff and thicker leather. The plum takes a beautiful shine as does the red with Melton shoe cream, really dresses them up, I think the type of leather is the plum and red is a little thinner and more refined. I decided if we ever had a house fire, after saving the animals, I'd go back for my boots!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LGinWV from I can't say enough good about these boots! I wore these boots for the first time today. I was on my feet quite a bit and walking on concrete. After wearing them for 9+ hours my feet were as comfortable as when I first put them on! No break in period needed! I have been wearing Frye boots for over 40 years and I remain a faithful customer having a dozen or so boots currently in my collection. As always, I can order my normal size, 10m, and know that they will fit perfectly. Thank you for offering a "Made in the USA" selection - I like to support our craftspeople.
