Latest Frye Reviews

  • Frye by Ruby Chukka Posted: Oct 19, 2014 Reviewer: from Syracuse, NY Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I ordered a black pair for myself and a brown pair for my daughter. I own about 5 pairs of Frye boots/shoes and these are definitely the softest leather. They are true to size and feels totally broken in from day one. This is very comfortable and beautiful shoe. I wear them with pants as well as dresses.

    Love this bag, the workmanship is outstanding. I am very pleased that there is very little metal on this bag, the leather is beautiful!

    Attractive shoe, with cute heel, wonderful fit and comfort. I need a heal insert to keep my heel from slipping, but this is not uncommon for me.

About Frye

The Frye Company was founded in 1863 by John A. Frye, a shoemaker from England. Frye products have a long and illustrious history. Frye boots were worn by soldiers for both sides of America's Civil War, soldiers in the Spanish-America war, and for Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders. Many New England families during the mid and late 1800's wore Frye boots as they pioneered across the country to the West.

Frye's current Harness Boots are rooted in tradition and continue to draw influence from the Cavalry. Today the classic Harness Boot holds a place in American culture. The Frye Harness Boot has been pictured in fashion spreads internationally. In 1938, on a trip to Washington, D.C., John A. Frye's grandson and namesake met a U.S. Navy Admiral who confided that he had trouble finding the boots he liked so much. As a favor, John agreed to make him a pair. Frye continued to fill requests for these boots through the Second World War. During World War II, Frye supplied thousands of servicemen with Frye Wellington boots, known as Jet Boots, by mail order.

In the 1960's, Frye reintroduced the Campus Boot, from its 1860 original, featuring a bulky toe and chunky heel that came to epitomize the attitude and the style of the 60's and 70's. There was nothing like these "new" Frye Boots on the market, and consumers began to demand "Original Fryes." When searching for items to represent the America of the 60's, the Smithsonian Institute chose a pair of Frye Boots.

The quality of all Frye shoes is timeless. For almost 150 years, Frye leather products have continued to be benchcrafted from the finest full grain leather uppers. It takes over 190 steps to make one pair of Frye boots. Frye remains dedicated to the commitment of craftsmanship for which Frye boots and Frye shoes have been known for more than 100 years.
