My Love of Vintage Frye Campus Boots

Frye boots are special in so many ways! They are not only well made and gorgeous, they come from a company with a rich American history. Frye Boot Company has been around since the mid 19th century and soldiers on both sides of the civil war wore them. John Frye was a shoe maker that immigrated from England and ran the company here in the U.S. for 50 years until he died. You can still see the quality in the Frye Boots made today. I love the Frye boots from the 60's and 70's and in particular the campus style like these boots in the picture. When Frye was ready to expand the style of their boots in the 60's they came out with the "Campus Boot". They come in many different styles and heights - they look great with flowery skirts or tight jeans. Vintage Frye Boots are a versatile and a must have for the discriminating fashionista! They are very bohemian yet slightly rugged western which is a beautiful combination. Frye boots are truely golden!
