I don't like that thing that's beneath the elastic.

no experience, but i noticed that the description says leather sole and the pictures show what appears to be a black man-made/rubber sole.

These prolly aren't the best made boots, but I like the way they look better than the ones in your link.

I've got the frye mason's in a dark brown and they're pretty nice considering the cost. The sole is a vibram sole which is pretty comfortable and durable, not leather like zappo's is advertising. They are welted though. The leather on my brown ones at least is nice and supple and just looks better with every wear. If you're looking for a really sleek chelsea though these prob arent for you.

i'm not looking for top-tier quality just something that will last and won't look ridiculous as a change of pace from my sneakers. i think i'm going to go ahead and pick these up.

Those don't look horrendous, but isn't there a 50% off CT coupon at the moment? That would be a much better choice.

They don't look too great, especially the sole is kinda bleh. It could be me, but doesn't $140ish seem a bit overpriced for those shoes?

If they're made-in-Mexico Fryes, then yes. If they're made-in-USA Fryes, then no.

Frye also does a zip version of that boot. I never understood why someone would want elastic on their boots, but I will admit I'm more tempted by a pair of RM Williams everyday.
