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.

Love these boots! The aged leather is beautiful and the cut and style is super-cool in my opinion. They fit perfectly (true to size) and they look just as great when you get them as they do on the website, perfect! Thanks Zappos!Read more » « Show less November 25, 2011 by Cyn

It's impossible to zip the back zipper. The shoe is actually a little big on me so that is not the issue. I've tried zipping it and unzipping without my foot in it which is also difficult. When I put my foot in the boot I cannot zip it up! I have to return them...Read more » « Show less February 15, 2012 by Ardy O

I found these boots true to size and width, comfortable from day one; they are snug all around but not tight. They are wide enough that my leggings and skinniest jeans will fit under them, but not with much space to spare. I have the dark brown antiqued color. The leather is thick and worn in, lots of scuffing and distressing, no shine. The effect is very rugged. There is a lot of red in this brown, and when I saw them at first I checked the box to make sure that they had not sent the wrong color. Of course they hadn't (Zappos never makes mistakes); but it is a dark brown with a red base, in my opinion. (I have the black antiqued leather in another Frye boot, and that leather is worn in but without nearly as much scuffing and distressing - a very different look.) As the other reviewers wrote, the zipper is stiff. I am using a pliers to get a good grip on them and so not having a problem. I'm expecting that over time it will loosen up. Once again, another home run from Frye and from Zappos.
I'd also recommend: Nothing else is like Frye.

I have been looking for the perfect short boot for months now and have finally found it! I have 2 other pairs of Frye boots which I love, and these do not disappoint. They have really nice construction, beautiful leather, love the details and the zipper, perfect height, everything is great. Adding some insoles would be nice for a bit more arch support, but otherwise they are really great. Buy them!

Boot not only looks worn in it feels that way too! It's light and so comfortable - no break in necessary. I've always had to get a wide width but this boot was not available in a wide so I ordered a B and it fits perfect! Ankle length style is super. At last! A boot I can wear year round in Florida.

I love these boots! They are comfortable from the moment I put them on. Yes, the zipper is stiff, I am thinking that it will loosen up.
