The men's collection of Frye boot for what's coined "pre-Fall" saw fresh colors for popular styles like the  Wes Drivers and Otis Penny and Venetian slip-ons.










Pebble Grain, hand polished


















WORKBOOTS -hefty shoes made with Goodyear Welt construction- lug soles---flexible, wear year round options.








"Every guy has them." Or should.















Materials-Pebbled full grain, oiled suede and vintage leather.

Dakota Oxfords  (here in Pebbled Full grain) "truly look Frye"---in a classic silhouette.





























This bold outside zipper is "for the skinny jeans kind of guy."














Classic Engineer

Hand polished



This wingtip is a knock-out. A must pair in every guy's footwear wardrobe...the signature is the finishing touch.



Stone Wash Finish-takes a bunch of steps to get this just right




Lace-ups range from casual to more dress options---but the Frye guy has a sense of casual elegance that distinguish these kickers from other labels.
