Frye Boots have been the standard for western boots since 1863 when John A. Frye, a prominent English shoemaker founded the company. It is still to date, the oldest continuously operated shoe company in the United States. Frye Boots was run by John Frye until 1911 until his death and then was taken over by his family until 1945. Frye Boots remains a signature of tradition and quality boot making.
Frye Boots go back to the time of the Civil War. Frye Boots were worn by Confederate and Union soldiers as well as Teddy Roosevelt's ""Rough Riders"" during the Spanish-American War. Even when the earlier settlers began pioneering west, many of the adventurous New England families were wearing Frye Boots. Frye is as much a part of American History as apple pie. They are more comfortable too.
The famous Frye Harness Boot continues to lead the charge and draw influence from the American Cavalry of those very early years. Even during a trip in 1938 to Washington, DC, Frye Boots we requested to be custom made for a US Navy Admiral. All throughout World War II, Frye provided custom boots for officers as well as supplying thousands of service men with Frye Wellingtons (aka Jet Boots). Frye Boots have traveled the world on the feet of brave and courageous servicemen. Even steel hard General George Patton wore a pair of Frye Boots. The classic Frye Harness Boots will forever hold a place in American History and stay rooted in the heart of American Culture.
