Frye Logo
The Frye Company was founded in 1863 by John A. Frye, a shoemaker from England. Frye products 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. 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 saw these shoes on a trip to Texas. They did not have my size, but I loved the shoe. I thought when we get home I will order them from Zappos. I was so excited when they arrived, I had already decided which clothes I was going to wear them with. My excitement was quickly dashed. My right foot bunion let it be known that this was not the shoe for me. Plus the shoe top gapped...so it was not because the shoes were to narrow. Back to Zappos they went. Others were correct, extremely soft leather and very good looking. But not for me.

These shoes are so cute. The leather is really nice and the look is unique. The cute of them is flattering (narrowing to my feet). However, I ordered my normal size 7 and they were surprisingly too long. I would say they run long, but not wide.

Ordered the white. Feel great after breaking in. I have a narrow fit and traditionally wear an 8.5. Because of the pointed toe, fits perfect! LOVE THEM!

Awesome shoe. Best of all they run narrow, and since I have narrow feet, here is a boot finally that I can wear as it is not too wide. (And yet it is still a medium for you ladies with a medium width foot). Beautifully made. Leather smells wonderful. I am wearing a medium thick sock with this. I did not have to buy a size smaller or larger, they are true to size. Maybe others needing a larger size may have a larger toe area or larger heels? I bought them in black in a 7 1/2. I may have to buy them in another color.

I love these boots! Unfortunately, there must have been a manufacturing error. There is a ridge that runs along the back of the heel that causes discomfort. It's as if the lining slipped. It is present in both left and right.

I had to return these due to a problem I'm having with my left foot, and I was afraid to keep them until fall. Here's what I loved about them: the roomy toe box, the surprisingly supportive arch, the comfortable height, and the buttery soft leather.

The perfect boot. This is my third pair of stone engineers. Not because they wear out but for different uses. One for the barn, one for the road and one for going out. I get constant compliments on them, they are super comfortable and supportive and I really feel good when I wear them. Like another customer said, these make me feel good physically and emotionally and give me more confidence when I wear them.

I wear 9.5. Maybe a little wide sometimes. I ordered 9.5M. They are a perfect fit. Great quality, great looking dark brown Frye zipper boots. Zappo discout was close to 30% over amazon & Frye’s own website. Had ‘em in 3 days. Wow! Thanks!!!

These boots mean business. They were much heavier than I anticipated, so I feel like I clunk around in them. I've only worn them once so far, and was concerned with how tight they were at first. They loosened up after about an hour, though, and were very comfortable after that. I do expect these to last a very long time, and look forward to how they'll look and feel after they're fully broken in. The upper leather is soft, but the boot/foot portion is VERY solid. It will take a lot of wear to break these in. I'd definitely recommend them, though.

These were a little too tight in the toe and too loose in the heel. Also my bunion stuck out prominently, so they had to be returned.

The size fits well in terms of where my toes end within the shoe, however, my arch was too high for the top of the shoe which resulted in me being unable to zip the shoe up. I read some reviews about this issue previous to buying but thought I would be fine since I didn't think my arch was particularly high. Apparently, it is. Or maybe it's just the shoe? On a different note, the style is even more beautiful in person and the leather is quite nice. Really wanted these to work, but the fit just wasn't right. :(

Size is exactly what I wanted. Did not want a big backpack. Needed enough room for a few items for day trips. Also wanted additional zipper compartments for wallet and passport. This backpack fit the bill. Easy to carry and not heavy.

Hurrah! These are fantastic red flats! I am sure I will wear them everywhere but swimming. Perfect to perk up jeans, but not at all fussy. Since they are Fryes, construction is solid, and I have no fear of them becoming dented, scratched, stretched out or worn out before their time.
