Founded in 1863 by John A. Frye, a shoemaker from England, The Frye Company is the oldest continuously operating shoe company in the United States. Frye products, including children’s boots and shoes, have a long and illustrious history. Frye boots were worn by soldiers for both sides of America’s Civil War, soldiers in the Spanish-America war, and for Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders. Many New England families during the mid and late 1800’s wore Frye boots as they pioneered across the country to the West.

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, and has been brought down to youth sizes. The Frye Harness Boot has been pictured in fashion spreads internationally and enjoys strong sales in the United States, Europe and Japan. 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 Frye's." When searching for items to represent the America of the 60's, the Smithsonian Institute chose a pair of Frye Boots. Frye continues to manufacture quality boots for infants, toddlers and children, allowing you to outfit your entire family in the Frye tradition.

Frye remains dedicated to the commitment of craftsmanship for which Frye has been known for more than 100 Years.

My 9 year old daughter LOVES these! We ordered them for a performance at school with a Western theme! Ordered them larger by a 1/2 size so she can hopefully wear them in the fall, too! Frye always makes a great boot with spectacular quality!

Returned them! When did Frye go synthetic? Ughh, what's the point of buying this brand then? If I wanted cheap pleather boots I get buy them anywhere, and for half the price!

Leather started peeling off toes very early on. And the structure of the boot got floppy...

Bought these for my 9 year old daughter for a spring performance with a Western theme! She loves them and begs me to wear them all of the time! Since they are FRYE and will last (until she outgrows them), I am letting her! We love the brand, We love the aesthetics, We love the quality and are very pleased with the comfort!

I read the reviews before buying, so I was aware that the uppers are synthetic. I was totally ok with that, although, I really do expect more from this brand. The style is excellent, and these will be fabulous for horseback riding this summer. Best of all, my daughter likes them. Do tell Frye that we expect them to up their game ;)

I bought 2 sizes for my granddaughter, but the smaller size was too tight and the next size up was too big.

I've had many pairs of Frye boots myself and this was the fourth pair of boots I've purchased for my three daughters. (We hand them down!) But the quality on this pair is...so so bad. She scuffed her toe one time and a huge piece of the the "leather" peeled off. What?! Last time I checked leather doesn't peel, right? Do not buy these shoes.

My 11 year old son loved these shoes and they wore really Wells I am getting a second pair because he just grew out. 1 year later the tie busted out.

Very nice quality and design. My 10 year old loves them. But I have concerns about buckles on sides, they are not very adjustable, are very short. There is also a fold or flap of elastic and leather inside the boot created by the "adjustable" buckles that goes half the way down the inside of the boot about a 1-.75" wide that appears to rub against legs.

very disappointed. I am a Frye fan (adult size) and would love to have had my daughter have Frye boots as well. The quality in the kids line could be improved.

Very cute boots. Fit great. Unfortunately, one of the side button details fell of within 45 minutes of wearing them. Will try again and exchange for a new pair, hopefully it was just a fluke.

these are/were beautiful style and my daughter loved them. I bought these boots last winter but it was a little big so she started wearing them last month and it already looks worn out so badly i feel embarrassed to let her wear these anymore. I am a huge fan of Frye boots and own 5 pairs myself but these are horrible leather quality!

The sythetic leather is so stiff/poorly made that the boot rubbed the back of my daughter's foot raw. The zipper is also difficult to maneuver and not well constructed. Overall, the fit is fine but the constuction/material is poor.

The boots are much to heavy and bulky for my 9yo daughter to wear daily this winter. My bigger problem is with the previously excellent Zappos customer service: I have been a loyal Zappos customer for years, using it as the primary source from which to buy my family's shoes. The reason why I chose Zappos over another internet vendor or a brick and mortar store was the wide selection combined with the easy return/exchange policy. However, it seems this policy has completely changed. Approximately $1.04 of the purchase of these boots was paid for using the left over balance of a gift card and because of this I can't do an exchange. Instead I have to send the boots back and receive a credit back to my debit card which will take ~10 days if I send the boots back today. This new policy of doing returns/exchanges using gift cards has completely compromised one of the most important aspects of Zappos customer service. For this holiday season and beyond, I will look to other vendors before coming to Zappos and only use this website as a last resort if I can't find what I'm looking for somewhere else. This is extremely disappointing after being a very happy Zappos customer for years.
