Frye: The Boots That Made History

In 1863 John A. Frye opened the doors of a small shop in Marlboro, Massachusetts. The shoes he made weren’t meant to be icons of fashion–yet somewhere along the line, Frye boots became just that. The same boots originally worn by pioneers and servicemen were featured in international fashion spreads. Jackie Kennedy wore them. John Lennon wore them. Rockers and celebrities as diverse as Bruce Springsteen, Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert Pattinson, and Sam Worthington wear them today. In this gorgeous oversized fashion book, featuring images by such top photographers as Bob Gruen and Jake Chessum, Frye boots are seen rocked out and urbanized, accessorized and envied, worked and roughed up, always flaunting their inimitable style and all-American cool.
