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 Wellington 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.

Frye Cavalry W
I worked for Frye a long time ago and after reading other reviews thought I'd throw a little suggestion for anyone about to buy and worry about "breaking-in" a pair > try them, decide thickness of sox, add a plastic bag on your feet, and WET THE BOOTS! Wear them until they dry - they will be customized to your foot. It's how the $1200 custom-made boots are done - except they use a plaster-cast of the clients' feet. Fryes have been a classic for a very long time -- that really ought to speak for itself.

Frye Cavalry is such a fine boot. I have several pairs of their harness boots. Which run long in length but rather narrow in width. The harness part really makes the ankle fit more snug. I noticed with these cavalry they're a little bit wider in width, but will take up the extra room with my orthodic, and a thick sock. These boots are classic, and will wear year after year! Solid wholesome, well made with Frye craftmanship, you can't go wrong!

These are wonderful boots! Simple silhouette without the harness; the brown leather sole gives the boot the look of its name "Cavalry". I love them. I have a slight bunion on my left foot; my width is medium; flats for me 7; heels 6.5-7; athletic shoes 7.5; and the Cavalry as well as Harness, 7.5. I tried 6.5 in the Harness 8R, by the end of the day my feet were so swollen, I wanted to cut them off my feet. I would suggest reg size or even 1/2 size up if this sounds like you. Boots should have some slippage in the heel for proper fit.

I love these boots. They are gorgeous and impeccably made. They are taking a while to break-in, because the leather is pretty stiff, but I am totally fine with this as it attests to the quality of my boots and the likelihood that they'll have a very long lifetime. This is one very happy customer. Also the tapering toe is a teeny bit narrow on my feet, so they aren't great for several-mile walks, or whole days spent standing, but I am also expecting the leather to give a little bit in that area.

Love, love, love these boots! I wanted a pair of all-around boots that I could wear with dresses, skirts, and jeans that weren't too fancy or embellished. These are it. Beautiful leather, very well made, and I can tell they are going to last for years to come! Highly recommend this boot.
