Frye boots store in Boston

The origins of Frye boot company go back to 1863 when John Frye opened a small boot store in Malboro, Mass. not with a fashion bent but to serve the functional elements for the factory workers in that small New England town.  Today these high quality boots are deeply embedded in the American culture and the brand is thriving.  The Classic Gentleman’s visit to flagship store in Boston was a rewarding experience.


The Frye store is located on Boston’s most enchanting street – Newbury; Eight blocks filled with salons, boutiques, and fabulous dining.


The space dedicated to women and gentlemen shoes and accessories is warm, inviting, spacious and even luxurious.  Rich wooden shelfs are lined with the iconic boots, bags and other leather accessories.IMG_7545

This skull studded short boot caught our eye for the novelty but we passed on the pracicality element.IMG_7548 IMG_7549

This shelf of four classic boot styles did catch our eye.  These are the Walter lace up boots with top grade full grain leather, speed hooks and a stacked leather heel.IMG_7550

We settled on the whiskey / cognac color version.  At $349 a pair, a great buy for an iconic American brand.IMG_7553

  1. Hi,

    Could you comment on the fit of the Walter lace up boot? How does this fit compared to the Alden Indy boot? True to size? Big? Tight fitting?


  2. Thanks, Sanjay. This was the answer I was looking for. I like the color of the Whisky/Cognac, but i’m curious if that’s just the light. I’ve seen other pics of the Whiskey color but it just looks like a lighter shade of brown, whereas, the whiskey/cognac has a orangish hue to it.
