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.

I just wrote a review for the Veronica Shortie. Here is what I have to say...I have been comparing the two and driving myself nut's trying to decide which one to get. Zappos state's the shaft height is the difference between the two. I called The Frye Company directly and they said that THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE! The name was just changed. SO, if you have been wondering which to get... to go a half inch shorter or taller...debate no more! They are EXACTLY THE SAME in the shaft and the fit! Zappos just has the wrong info. posted. They are so WONDERFUL and AMAZING, I know they will update this! Hope this helps!Read more » « Show less July 30, 2012 by Mariah s

Very disappointed in this product. I ordered three pairs that were all defective before deciding to go with a Frye boot that is made in the USA. Heads up, the Veronica Short as well as many of the Frye "fashion" styles are made in Mexico. The quality difference between the domestic and foreign products are night and day, and at this price, simply not acceptable to me. My USA made Frye Engineer 8R boots are amazing though!Read more » « Show less October 24, 2012 by Anonymous

I have been looking for boots that I could wear multiple ways (with a dress, leggings, pants) and these are the boots that I chose. I wanted them to be able to slide on easily without difficulty because I am busy running after two small children and do not have time to fuss with too tight boots. These were perfect. The bronze color is beautiful and can compliment the main neutrals (grey, brown, black) really well. I love that versatility. The only negative is that the heel slips on wet surfaces. I need to buy a heel gripper for the bottom of the shoes.

I have this boot, got it on sale here at Zappos about ten years ago. It is the Engineer 12 r w, which is a little more industrial looking. Anyway, absolutely love them. The finish is really cool, never have to polish or shine them up. Just rinse off and lubricate the leather soles and you're good to go. I have them on as I'm writing this!

I have the "Veronica Shortie" in the slate color and absolutely love them. I'm now interested in trying these. I would like to point out, however--in reference to an earlier review by another reviewer--that there actually is a discernible difference between the "Veronica Shortie" and the "Veronica Short," and that is the sole. The "Veronica Short" is a bit more rugged.

I thought these were going to be the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. I put them on and was truly disappointed. They felt tight around the toe area, my heel slipped against the hard back, and there is absolutely no arch support. I'm sure the leather needs to be broken in and after time I'm sure it would happen but my feet would be ruined trying.
