With its dedication to craftmanship and design, Frye's enduring vision remains true to it's heritage and vintage American roots, while constantly designing new and modern products. Frye's benchcrafted shoes, boots, and handbags feature rich, beautiful leathers and distinctive, iconic hardware. Frye continues to be a fashion innovator, while maintaining the timelessness, authenticity and luxury that is has become synonymous with.


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. Founded in 1863, the Frye Company is the oldest continuously operating shoe company in the United States. With its dedication to craftmanship and design, Frye's enduring vision remains true to it's heritage and vintage American roots, while constantly designing new and modern products.

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.
