I (heart) Frye...


My love for Frye boots began when I scored an amazing pair of vintage Fryes at a local vintage shop...
My 1970s burnt orange Frye Campus Boots

I purchased them along with a pair of vintage Nine West cowboy boots for a total of 50$...Can you imagine Frye boots for 25 Dollars!?!?!  What a dream...I bought these over 10 years ago (2005 I believe) and I still wear them today and just love 'em!
Here is a pair that a friend of mine received for Christmas this year...aren't they beauties!? I love the Frye logo detail at the top is...so awesome!

Charming Frye facts:


✰ The Frye Company was started by John A. Frye in 1863!! In Marlboro, Massachusetts.


✰ It is the oldest continuously operating footwear brand in America.


✰ The goal of Frye has always been to create footwear that is as beautiful as it is durable (that's the truth!)

Image from a 1975 Frye boot catalogue.
✰ The Harness boot was first made for a U.S. Navy Admiral who was having difficulty finding the Wellington style he liked...as a favor John agreed to make him a pair...and continued filling requests for boots through World War II.  Frye continued to supply thousands of soldiers and pilots with the Frye Wellingtons, known as Jet boots.


✰ These Harness boots go down in history...they are classic and continue to be very popular.


✰ The Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. still has a pair of Fryes on display today after choosing them as one of the "items to best represent America during the Sixties."


✰There is an AMAZING short and sweet video called HOW FRYES ARE MADE on the Frye website...check it out here!
