Frye

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.

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. :(

There Brown Color is perfect, The Feel of the leather is Great. The shoes feel as if they were already broken in. It is great to know they still make excellent shoes.

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.

This is just a matter of taste, so shouldn't discourage anybody from getting it. I returned this purse because I narrowed my choices down to several and chose another one. This one is the perfect size for a small purse that holds a cell phone, small wallet, keys, lip gloss. Soft leather.

Love the Veronica Combat boot! I have narrow feet and these work quite well with inserts for me. The sole would be quite comfortable without inserts as well. They look fantastic and are super comfortable. I have many pairs of boots, but I always seems to select these. And just like other shoes Frye makes, they are well made.

I loved these booties. I usually wear a size 9.5 but order 10 in boots. The 10 was too large so I ordered the 9.5. They fit perfectly except for the width. :/ I’m sure they would eventually break in after some wear but I was scared to take that chance at that price. If they ever offer a wider width, I will order them again!

I find that all Frye shoes with the exception of their sandal wedges are true to size. This is my 4th pair of Frye boots...3rd in the engineer style and I love them. I love the clunky look of short boot style...I can wear dresses, leggings, and skinnies with these...love them.

Beautiful design and comfortable fit, so disappointing that it is far from a white shoe. I would describe the color as grey / cream and the leather while smooth has a textural look to the color. Not what I was expecting. I needed a true white shoe.

I really like this bootie. It felt like it ran a half size smaller than normal. I typically wear a 7 in boots and I ended up in a 7 1/2. I chose the Black suede. Once again, Frye knocks it out of the park!

Ordered a 9.5 and it was very tight in width but about right in length. That's a first for me.

I’ve had these boots in black for about 4 years, and I wear them almost daily in the winter. So when I saw them on sale in brown, I had to have them. These fit slightly bigger than my other pair, but they’re still fine. I usually wear them with thicker tights or a pair of peds.

Very frustrating shoe. Love the style. Initially purchased my normal size - a 10 - and was swimming in it; they were easily a good 1/2" too long. So I returned and ordered the next size down, a 9 1/2. That ended up being way too snug (in my mind, it was appropriately sized as a 9 1/2).

I'm typically size 9 with rather slender feet (wouldn't call them narrow). In Frye I'm usually 8.5. I got these in 8.5 and 9 based on reviews. The 8.5 felt too tight. With commitment, they may give during break in potentially. The 9 felt too big. It seems like the ideal size for me would be somewhere in between. I'll try wearing the 8.5 with thick socks around the house to see if they give enough to keep. The 9 is too long and I prefer my boots snug. Quality of the built and leather is beautiful and the style is definitely bada$$. Recommend if they fit you. I'm still deliberating.

I really wanted to love these boots. In fact, I kept putting them on over the course of a week or so. I love the distressed finish and the leather is rugged and gorgeous. They really look like you've had them for years. But, yes there is a but. The shaft is just to slouchy and big for my very narrow ankles and calves. They fit true to size. I'm an 8.5 and that's the size I got. Zappos has a great free shipping and return policy so just go ahead and give them a try!

These boots are gorgeous and high-quality but ultimately had a more western look than I wanted and were a bit slim through the calf. The leather smells incredible and looks very expensive. It did have an unfinished quality that makes me suspect it could be stained by water, mud or something spilling on it. They also felt a bit stiff but I imagine they will soften with wear as they are real leather.
