Frye Boot Company

The Frye Company is the oldest continuously operated shoe company in the United States. The Company was founded in 1863 by John A. Frye, a well to do shoemaker from England. John A. Frye ran the business for nearly 50 years. After his death in 1911, his family continued to run the company until 1945.

Frye products have a long and illustrious history; Frye boots were worn by soldiers for both sides of America’s Civil War, soldiers in the Spanish- American war, and for Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders. When home-steading drew adventurous New England families to the West during the mid and late 1800’s many of the pioneers wore Frye Boots for the long journey.

Today Frye’s classic Harness Boot holds a place in American culture. The Harness Boot has been pictured in fashion spreads internationally and enjoys strong sales in the United States, Europe and Japan.
