The story of Frye is a long and proud one that began in 1863 when John A. Frye opened the doors of a small shop on Elm Street in Marlboro, Massachusetts. The mission then is what it remains today: to make the best-looking, hardest-working, longest-lasting shoes and leather goods.
We are delighted to have a collection of what we consider to be some of Frye’s finest styles of boot, all of which are shown in the image below.
Many dream of having such an extensive collection in their own closet, but most of us start with one, knowing that they will last a lifetime and fill so many roles. If you own a pair of FRYE’s, you know how wonderful they are – how much they can endure (oh, it’s endless), how sturdy they are, and how the high quality leather softens and molds to fit your foot perfectly.
Once you purchase your first pair of FRYE’s, you join the legions of marvelous people who have become faithful to this brand. First you learn how happy your feet can be once you get your boots on – then the delightful realization sets in that with FRYE’s, you can shop for style without having to think twice about the shoe’s practicality. Practicality is a GIVEN! Ah.
If you have not purchased your first pair of FRYE’s yet, come let us show you the light. We have such a carefully culled collection because we know that every woman has a unique style and set of requirements when she shops for a fine pair of boots. Here is a brief summary of each style (as described by the FRYE Company,) so that you can consider which might be your best bet…just keep in mind that within each of the following categories there are countless gorgeous variations that we carry, and that you can see in our image below.
The Harness 12R – This treasured American boot with its definitive O-ring, straps and studs is a great everyday look.
The Campus – The CAMPUS™ boot features a bulky toe and chunky heel that came to epitomize the attitude and styles of the 1960s and 1970s.
The Melissa Boot – The legendary Melissa, here in richly tanned brush off leather. Rising to the knee with a deeply notched collar, thick-cut pulls are tacked in place by our hallmark button.
The Courtney Lace Up - Inspired by FRYE’s Phillip collection, this vintage inspired lace up is made in soft, hand burnished leather.
And there are even MORE, if you can believe it, like the adorable and really cosmopolitan Heath Heel bootie. You’ll just have to come over and you’ll see how quickly you can become a believer…
