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----
|WALLS OF FOOTWEAR/BAGS! VERY TEMPTING|
|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...
|Vintage Stud Satchel|
Lots of equestrian and engineer/work boot influences influences...
|Harness 2 Ring|
The Carson---a Frye staple...is totally new---with two buckles, a pointy or round toes.
FRYE Leather are exceptional---
|Jenna Studded Short-with studded satchel/cuff for ggrrrllllsssss|
Short boots including the Shirley Strappy Short popular and easy on off----
Stacked heels are a comfy way to get the height...

The Taylor Chelsea---nice detail....
We love the cuffs----
Inside zips on lace-ups
|Our fav shearling looks---the Celia boot with the lace-up back-stunning...|
Americana---female Bailey Chukka
|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....

AND this Arkansas Mid Lace---made in the USA too.
