Shoes. Not only are they fun fabulous and fashionable but they are a necessity. We all need to wear shoes every day in our lives and yes, even if you live at the beach (jealous!) you will need some sort of shoe at times. This season we’ve talked about how important color is… it’s been making appearances everywhere from jeans to accessories and now you will need shoes to go with these fab items. Now guys, I know what you are thinking and the answer is no, your shoes do not have to be all shades of the rainbow. However, they do need to be cool, and no one does cool quite like the Frye Company.
Founded in 1863 by John A. Frye, The Frye Company is the oldest continuously operated shoe company in the United States. Mr. Frye ran the business for nearly 50 years and after his death in 1911, his family continued to run the company until 1945.
That means for 150 years Frye has continued to make amazing shoes- pretty impressive, right? If that doesn’t convince your need to try out this brand then their craftsmanship and leather quality will.
With our steadfast commitment to quality and painstaking attention to detail, it takes more than 190 steps to make one pair Frye boots, and a similar set of processes to make our shoes and accessories.
We use the highest quality leathers, all tanned with natural oils, which distinguish our products. We have developed demanding standards for our materials and craftsmanship, and our experienced team of shoemakers and designers work diligently to ensure these standards are met in all the places we make our products.
Now that you are completely obsessed with the brand’s heritage, let me show you some of my favorite picks for this season:
The Hudson Chukka is Frye’s twist on the classic Chukka boot. Dressed up or down, this shoe will steal the show. I see it paired perfectly with slim fit jeans and a cool sweater, or even a pair of colored chinos!
This James Lug Wingtip shoe symbolizes everything that I love about style: Sleek and masterfully crafted. Wear this shoe to the office or to a lunch date…. or on a date with me.
More of a sneaker dude? No problem! The Greene Artisan Low combines comfort with cool. Try it in a cool color such as the one pictured above! And don’t be afraid to wear it with those red jeans in your closet- baller.
Ahhh, my favorite! This Otis Penny loafter will rock your world! And the color… shut up.
I hope some of the shoes above have tickled your fancy! These are just a few out of TONS of killer shoes the Frye Company has to offer. My latest obsession from them? My Jillian Oxfords. What do you think?
Enjoy your new kicks!
