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.

This is a gorgeous boot but it is definitely grey, not black. It's very tall, size 11 would hit right underneath my kneecap, and I'm 6' tall. I have a high instep and can't get my foot in so it's going back.Read more » « Show less November 14, 2011 by Anonymous

Lovely boot - but, absolutely impossible to get on! I have kind of high arches and could not get my foot in the boot! They need a side zip for easier entry. Leather and style is great but, I have to send them back (and I do not think even a larger size would work either).Read more » « Show less November 14, 2011 by Anonymous
These boots are just not for me. I have a narrow foot and the boots were difficult to put on. Usually 8.5 to 9 are good fit. These 9 were too small by about 1/2 size, stiff. Color more light brownish with red. Unfortunately! Customer service is great, as usual!

These boots are fantastic. They hit me right below the knee, which looks awesome with skirts and heigh waisted jeans. The color is unique, a sort of rich red that has a lot of depth. I got four complements on these boots (two from men!) when I wore them on the first days. Frye is awesome, they are not cheap but the quality and styling is superb.

I love these boots so much. I purchased these on sale in the Antique Olive color. I love them. I think the color is really interesting and goes with everything. They look well made and expensive. I love the look of them. I usually wear between a 7 and a 7½ - I went with the 7½ and that was a good choice. Now I can layer tights and knee socks and it is super cute. They are really tall though - these are the tallest boots that I can comfortably wear (I'm 5'4"). They do hit the inside of my knees when I climb stairs sometimes, but I am sure they will soften up. I actually like that they are stiff as they will hold up and look new for a long time. They are super beautiful, super comfortable, a completely worth it purchase. I know that I will wear them forever.

Unfortunately these are just too tall for my short legs. Accurate sizing. The ankle area is wider, kind of like a Wellington boot. Lovely olive color.

I was thinking these boots would be more roomy around the calf because they have a slit in the back, but they are still very tight right at the top where the stitching is. I always have trouble fitting into boots though, so this is not very surprising, but...they are not extra roomy around the calves.
