Review: Target Frye Look Alike Boots by Merona

Lately there just aren't enough hours in the day and sometimes I wonder if I'll ever get back to blogging, regularly.  I've been busy playing nurse to my wonderful, amazing and hero husband who underwent some unplanned surgery last week.

Anyways, the Target Frye wannabe boots by Merona arrived last week and I finally got around to trying them on this weekend.

The verdict? 
They had lots of potential but both pairs, cognac and brown, ended up being returned to Target. 
Ignore the jeans, they went back, too.  I'm striking out lately w. fashion.
Although they were extremely comfortable on my feet, they just looked cheap to me. The other thing I wasn't crazy about was they were a bit tight on my upper calves, I wasn't blessed with chicken legs, and they slouched (already) on my ankles.  I don't want to be walking around with cankles. And I totally forgot to take a picture of the brown ones but you can see a smidgen of the color in the corner of the pic.

And while we're talking footwear, does anyone else have this problem?
No matter what brand or type of footies/liners I buy to wear with (any pair of) flats they always show.  So then I end up just wearing flats barefoot, which I hate because I don't want them smelling funky. 

Do y'all wear footies with flats? If so, where/what brands do you buy?  And do they show?

Hope everyone is having a good week. 


  1. Everyone is having trouble finding boots this year!!! I take it as a sign that we all just need to stop trying cheapies and buy a pair of Fryes. I want some badddddd.

    I don't wear any footies with my flats- and I wear flats almost every single day. I typically take my shoes off while im sitting at my desk during the day.. i think that helps a bit, since I don't have smell issues with any of mine. I don't have Revas though, and I do know those tend to get stinky.

  2. I spotted a pair of these boots on clearance at my local target and bought them. I think I was won over by the clearance price and they were the only pair and just happened to be my size. I'm actually returning them. It was an impulse buy! haha.

  3. Aldo sells these shoe liners that are sort of terry cloth that you can wash. I use those along with some baby powder. Bummer on the boots!!

  4. Love your boots - so super cute! Hope your hubby is okay and that you are doing well!

    I'm having a giveaway if you have time to stop by and enter! :)

  5. I want a pair of Fryes boots so bad but the price is killing me all my friends that have them say just get them you will love them. I putting them on the top of my christmas list. Let me know if you find a pair.
