|Frye Shoe Company|
The oldest continuously run shoe company in America, founded in 1863
Companies that have existed since the early 1900s are scarce, but a shoe company that can boast that Union and Confederate soldiers, along with Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders wore their boots is a rare find. Founded in 1863 by English bootmaker John Frye, the Frye Shoe Company is the oldest continuously run shoe company in America.
Many people who headed west in search of better land, adventure, and the open country in the mid-to-late 1800s trusted the safety of their feet to Frye boots. Crafted of premium full-grain leather, these quality boots were and are meant to support and protect the wearer’s feet for years.
During World War II Frye began providing servicemen with Wellington-style boots, also known as Jet Boots, and even General Patton owned a pair. Frye boots have a tendency to work at the forefront of great American causes—The Civil War, westward expansion, The Spanish-American War, World Wars I and II, and many other historic eras. In modern times, the same classic style is a cultural symbol in the United States for hard work and a passion for freedom.
One hundred years after Frye was established, they remade and introduced their original Campus Boot from the 1860s. As there was nothing else quite like it on the market, the country began to demand this vintage style. In fact, there is a pair of Frye boots in an exhibit representing the 1960s in the Smithsonian Institute. To successfully recreate a 100-year-old look is a testament to the timelessness of Frye’s styles. Frye also has a large presence abroad and in the world of celebrities.
Each Frye boot is finely crafted in more than 190 steps with rich leathers in a variety of beautiful finishes, using superior materials and hardware.
