If you love Frye boots, you are certainly in for a real treat at the brand new (it just opened this week, August 1, 2011) SoHo store! The massive yet cozy space harnesses the heritage and American roots of the brand via wooden fixtures, comfy furniture, leather and antique-inspired decor, and offers an astounding 800 SKUs of merchandise! Styles for women range from traditional boots to motorcycle shooties and flats, mens with boots to some super soft leather loafers, and children’s (small Frye) offerings that can only be described as absolutely adorable (read: tinier, brightly hued versions of adult styles). So yes, the cliche is true — there’s something for everyone!
My complimentary pick of the night was these Dorado Riding Boots in Bordeaux; a gorgeous muted red hue that reminded me of a vintage pair of boots of my mother’s from the 1970s.What’s your favorite Frye style?
The Frye Company store is located at 113 Spring St NYC in the heart of SoHo. As a fun factoid, the ceiling decor (pictured, at top) is actually made from 3000 harnesses!
