This month’s partnership with Zappos is all about FRYE! If you own a pair of Frye boots or shoes you already know this — Fryes are amazing. As soon as you slip a pair on you know that you’re wearing something expertly crafted with comfort in mind. The pillowy foot bed, the thick sole, that leather smell. As we prepared for this post and I was passing along info to both Jenna and Nicole we all said the same thing – “They just feel different than any boot I own.”
Maybe you’re like us and thought Frye would take a more western approach to all their boot styles, but this season we are dying over their take on the classic Cheslea boot – the Dara or Clara styles – the over the knee trend and a slip on heeled boot!
I have two distinct memories of Frye boots. First, I remember when I was growing up my mom had a pair of Fryes in this oiled leather and she is a size 8 1/2 and I’ve always been a 7 1/2 and I would steal them anyway. I’d tromp around in these loose beautiful boots and feel like a million bucks. When I saw the same shade on Zappos website I knew I had to have them.
Then, as a struggling college student, I bought a pair of eggplant purple vintage Frye’s and lived in them! When I was purging my closet, I decided to sell them and did a bidding style listing. I actually made $100 off them! Frye’s hold their value so well it’s such a great investment!! Even better lots are on sale at Zappos right now!
If you’re looking for an amazing gift to give (or for yourself) we are so sold on Frye’s they feel so luxe and with Zappos return policy you can have confidence in making this kind of investment. They have hundreds of options on their site, too! Such a great selection.Also Frye is such an amazing casual boot, it looks killer with jeans but we all love them styled with dresses and Sunday’s best! Obviously, since we all basically wore the same look – funny how that happens unintentionally. 😉So what is your favorite? Shiny leather, lush suede? Tall, short? Classic, western? So many options! We hope everyone gets some Fryes under their tree this year because they’re the best boots we own, by a landslide!
