FRYE Women's/Men's Fall 2011 Footwear/Accessories

Midtown, NYC
Words, Images Judith Ecochard

The media preview for Fall 2011 was a editor's dream---well laid out, top shelf products (we were told around 2300 skus!!!!!), easy "to get' groupings-all with that special Frye DNA----


Love the lighting fixture---employees helped!

We were ready to move in
Plus: We got to see more of the handbags, satchels, briefs----which not all outlets that carry Frye---will offer for sale---but we LOVE. But their store down on Spring Street should have plenty....

Take for example, this amazing old saddle bag that is made in Mexico, hand tooled/laser cut with an underlay---WANT.

More great bags...

Lots of equestrian and engineer/work boot influences influences...

 Lots of grippy lug and all rubber sole boots---in stylish lace-ups.---that save us a trip to the shoe guy---we  think for inclement weather and walking cities like NYC---the way to go.

Lucy Lace-Up

Erin Gore LACE

Wedge boots with a lug sole---"straight out of the men's take down"---a fashion-y twist on a work boot.

KIRA SLIP GORE---great autumnal tones---

MEN's boots have a distinct rock and roll vibe (the "skniny jeans" type)....

Clean and distressed leathers for the core and seasonal collections....

And terrific oxfords, wingtips, and loafer/slip-ons (James)...we think that come double as casual weekend shoes---or for business travelers with downtown who only want to take on board, one pair of shoes---the one's they're wearing.

Great finishes modern take on classic s;ip-ons and wingtip

Year round color- men's shoes

Logger soles---made for sturdy rubber....
