Riassunto: Jackie O. wore them, as did John Lennon. Icons as diverse as Bruce Springsteen, Julia Roberts, Sarah Jessica Parker, wear them today. They are the timeless Frye boots!
In 1863, John A. Frye opened the doors of a small shoe shop in Marlboro, Massachusetts. the shoes he made were to ease the everyday life of factory workers in that small New England town. Over a century later, the Frye Company has become the oldest continuously operating footwear brand in America. The boots Frye made weren’t meant to be icons of fashion, yet somewhere along the line, they became just that. FRYE: THE BOOTS THAT MADE HISTORY is a 150-year anniversary album that celebrates the early history of the brand, its cultural takeover in the early 1970s, and the artisanal methods that make its craftsmanship unique.
Frye boots are captured in all the ways they are worn: rocked out and urbanized, accessorized and envied, worked and roughed up, flaunting their inimitable style and all-American cool. This book takes the reader through the style and personality of the distinctive designs and handsome detailing of Frye’s most popular products, from its tough, treasured and instantly recognizable Harness Boot to the exclusive line dedicated to the American flag debuting this fall. With the strongest leather–enough to withstand 20 lbs. of pressure–and dozens of designs, the quality of Frye has always remained the same, making the brand not just a business but a way of life.
“Chronicling the brand’s early history, cultural significance, and unintentional—but widespread—influence on fashion...” ~Hamptons Magazine
“If you have any interest in the history of a true American classic brand, order a copy.” ~Selectism
“The book is full of amazing ye ole pictures of the family, the factory and even a newspaper clipping of First Lady Jackie Kennedy and her Frye riding boots. There are also excellent images of the factory through the ages and advertisements that would make Don Drapper jealous...you are immersed in all things Frye...” ~The Manual
“Frye is a love letter and photo album of sorts, highlighting the brand’s enduring footwear, craftsmanship and famous fans. It’s a fun look back to how influential and prevalent Frye footwear has been for decades, especially in the ‘60’s and ‘70s. There also are artful photos of the shoemaking process and a jaunt through vintage print advertisements over the years.” ~Houston Chronicle
“...wonderfully large-scale ode to Frye...The vintage clips and ads are one of the most fascinating components of this densely packed volume. The latter, particularly, offer a great visual history of America. But for someone who didn’t inherit any 1970’s Fryes from her mom or aunts, the book’s most alluring feature may simply be the abundance of up-close images of boots old and new that detail rugged hardware, finely stacked heels and naturally antiqued leather.” ~Stylecourt.com
