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.

Latest Frye Reviews

  • Frye by Phillip Cap Toe Ballet Posted: Apr 17, 2014 Reviewer: KB in Cali from CA Overall: 3 Stars Comfort: 3 Stars Look: 4 Stars
    Frye Philip Cap Toe Ballet in black - cuter than in photo, but for a narrower foot. I have a medium-to-wide foot with shallow heel and high arch, and typically buy medium-width shoes with no issues. I usually wear a 6 in Frye shoes since they have consistently run 1/2 size larger on me. My true size of 6.5 would have been better in the length and probably would have helped in the width, esp once they stretched out a bit. They are cut kind of like Italian shoes. Leather was thicker than Frye Regina, Carson & Agnes. Not a lot of padding in the footbed and zero arch support, but the cushioned tab at the back of the heel was nice & soft. The leather edge of the part of the shoe that went around the top of my foot was rough and felt like it would cut into my foot in no time. Sides seem too short to accommodate addition of padding or orthotics. These are going back thanks to Zappos fast, free shipping. Will keep trying.
  • Frye by Agnes Ballet Posted: Apr 17, 2014 Reviewer: KB in Cali from CA Overall: 2 Stars Comfort: 2 Stars Look: 3 Stars
    Frye Agnes Ballet in burnt red antique soft vintage and mustard soft vintage leather - cute as far as looks go and colors were beautiful, but I think the style will only work for a narrow foot. I have a medium-to-wide foot with shallow heel and high arch, and typically buy medium-width shoes with no issues. The cut of this shoe gave my foot a muffin-top. I usu wear a 6 in Frye shoes since they have consistently run 1/2 size larger on me, but I think a 6.5 would have worked better for the length without making very much difference in the width. They are cut kind of like Italian shoes. The leather is thicker than the Regina or Carson. Not a lot of padding in the footbed and zero arch support. Sides seem too short to accommodate addition of padding or orthotics. Back they go. Thank you Zappos for fast, free shipping both ways and easy returns, you make it easy to try again.
  • Frye by Carson Ballet Posted: Apr 17, 2014 Reviewer: KB in Cali from CA Overall: 2 Stars Comfort: 2 Stars Look: 3 Stars
    Frye Carson Ballet in antique charcoal soft full grain - cute for narrow feet. I have a medium-to-wide foot with shallow heel and high arch, and typically buy medium-width shoes with no issues. The cut of this shoe gave my foot a muffin-top. I usually wear a 6 in Frye shoes since they have consistently run 1/2 size larger on me, but I think a 6.5 would have worked better for the length without making very much difference in the width. They are cut kind of like Italian shoes. Iny my humble opinion, Frye boots and oxfords are made to last, but these are not worth the cost. I liked the fact that the interior and balance were all real leather, albeit thin. They are even thinner leather than the Frye Regina. Not a lot of padding in the footbed and zero arch support. Sides seem too short to accommodate addition of padding or orthotics. Thank you Zappos for fast, free shipping both ways and easy returns. I'll be back to find something else!
