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 Harness 8R
I purchased the Frye Harness 8R boot. The color I selected was the Charcoal Old Town. This boot wears well with a suit. I sported my boots with my suite to an event and received several compliments. I also wear my boots to complement my jeans. If you are concerned with the size, the boots are true to size. However, you should wear thin cotton socks. I wear a size 10 shoe. I purchased a size 10 1/2 boot. The boot is not a slip on. You need to use the side loops to pull your foot through. Once on, you will walk with style in a well-crafted boot by Frye. I use my boot while riding my motorcycle. I plan to get another pair to dedicate as my fashion pair. My Frye boots are comfortable and sporty.

Best service ever. Period. Most helpful staff. Period. Great return policy. Not one single problem. Had to return boots because I have a high arch. One boot fit the other was too tight getting on. They sent another pair and between the two pair I got two that fit perfect. Great company.

Great looking boots, just too big by one full size for me. I will go to Macy's tomorrow to try on different sizes and reorder with you unless of course they have them on sale, which I think they do.

This is a very nice and stylish boot. When I try to look pretty riding my motorcycle, I ware my boots. This boot also works well in a suite; many presentations dressed were given with my boots on. If you buy this boot, be sure to buy grey and black shoe polish. The two tone colors really bring out a real nice look. I must say wow! These boots look good.

I've always worn boots and I heard great things about Frye, but they are pricey. I have to say though I'm very glad I went ahead and spent the money, these are great boots. I got the dark brown old town and love the look. Several girls have noticed them and complimented me, so Bonus points to Frye for that. Using Zappos was easy and they shipped pretty fast.
