The Frye Company was founded by John A. Frye, who opened a small shop on Elm Street in Marlboro, Massachusetts on March 10th, 1863. The shoes he made weren’t fashion icons or fanciful in style. They served a simple purpose: to ease the daily working lives of the hundreds of factory workers in that small New England town.
Today, the classic Frye Harness boot holds a treasured place in American culture and has been featured in international fashion spreads and enjoys strong sales all over the world. The current line still includes many styles based closely on their 1860 originals.
Fast forward to the 1960’s in America when Frye introduced the Campus boot. The Frye Campus boot featured a bulky toe and chunky heel that came to epitomize the attitude and styles of the 1960s and 1970s. In 1975 the Frye Company donated a pair of Campus boots to the Smithsonian Institution in our nation’s capital as a representation of the era.
Today, Frye boots are made in factories inside and outside the United States, but only in factories dedicated to the same level of craftsmanship that has carried the legacy of John A. Frye for over 150 years. In 2013, Frye released the Frye 150th Anniversary Collection. The Frye Company sources its leather from the finest tanneries all over the world, then carefully selects manufacturing facilities globally based on their specific strengths and handcraft abilities.
This is the story of Frye’s history and heritage, told in every stitch of every shoe they have made, across cultural shifts and changes in fashion, for generation upon generation. Now, Frye boots are accessorized and envied on city streets, worked and roughed up on country roads, and chosen above all others for their inimitable style and uncompromising quality.
This is why we have chosen to offer Frye products at Sonoma Christian Home. We know you’ll love your Frye’s as much as we love our own.
