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.

Finally the perfect boot! These are the second pair of Frye knee high boots I tried. I originally bought the Paige; returned b/c the foot was shaped oddly and looked like clown shoes. These did take some work to get on, mainly b/c my calves are 16 and these are only a 15.5 and circumference, but I can definitely tell they'll stretch. The footbed is very comfortable from the get-go, even though I was nervous about having a heel, they're comfy. Not as tall as I expected, but I am 5'11 and my legs are long, so with the cuff up, they hit just below my kneecap. Per the other reviews, I did order a 1/2 size down and they are indeed just right.Read more » « Show less September 15, 2011 by Laura

I had gotten these along with the Jane Strappy as I liked the look of the shoe and heel (it reminds me of my favorite Carmen style). I also like the long shaft. The difference between these and the Strappies was immediate and extremely noticeable. The hard, stiff leather of the Cuff did not do it any favors. There is nothing, nor will there ever be anything wrong with the foot part of the Janes, but the shaft of the Cuff is a completely different story. It was unmouldable and the fit was just awkward. Instead of shaping nicely around my ankle and calf like the Strappies, the Cuff just went straight up in a diagonal which made the look of the boot awkward and a little cheap. The shaft was also way too wide, and did not mould like the Strappoes. They were not comfortable to walk in as I felt the shaft was "flapping around" (although it is a stiff leather). I also did not like the way the cuff went down and as the leather was so stiff the cuff part sat back from the shaft, not flush like I expected. At such a high price I expect nothing but excellence from Frye, as the Jane Strappies were more than worth it. The Cuffs will be going back. I just expected more from it. The fit alone is making me return it. I would choose the Strappies over the Cuffs any day.Read more » « Show less May 9, 2012 by Morgan

I have these in black. I only wear these 'uncuffed' because cuffed, they are too piratey looking for my tastes. My only complaint is that I wish they had been stored/shipped uncuffed, because there is a fold line in the leather. At least it's not as obvious as the OTK Campus boots I tried (that fold line was horridly distracting). These are the perfect height for me; I'm just over 5'3". They just about cover my kneecap when the cuff is up, so I find they make my legs look longer. I've found that many OTK boots (usually at least 21" high) make my legs look shorter. The heel is just the right height, and the foot bed is comfortable. So, with the exception of that fold line, I'm absolutely in love with these. Oh, and I have larger calves, and don't have a problem getting these on and off. My calves do not fit in a lot of Fryes (Jackie Button, or Jane Strappy for example).

I ordered this boot in taupe. Both style and the color are beautiful, I can't wait to put them on! I wear a 7.5 and don't have wide feet, however I could barely get into the right boot and had to exchange for another pair in 8. It arrived today, but this pair has some grease and glue marks, which are pretty noticeable. I wish the warehouse did better inspection before shipping it out. I will have to exchange yet again for another pair in 8.

I love this boot. Every time I wear them I get tons of compliments. I'm currently purchasing my second pair because I'm so happy with them and want another color. I bought my first pair last year and they have survived the winter. I am not careful with my shoes and these boots are proving to be winter friendly. They have traveled to Seattle, Alaska, new york and even bar night in Vegas and still look great! I agree with other posts that they were a struggle to put on when they are new...like hopping around on one foot praying I you can get your foot through the ankle bend, then employing friends to help pull them off! But after about a month they have stretched and fit perfect. Fashionable and comfortable. Highly recommended! :)

I have been looking for knee high boots for a long time, but inevitably, the flat type makes me feel fat. I'm about 5'5", 130 lbs. with an athletic build. Not exactly skinny thighs. These boots give me a nice lift with the very wearable heel. They are not exactly over the knee, but at about mid knee. I can also scrunch them down a bit. I got the burnished brown. It is not as rich and dark as the picture, but I like them regardless. I bought a 9, even though sometimes I wear an 8 1/2. They are easy to take on and off considering I also have athletic calves that sometimes make things difficult to fit. I think I am in love.
