How It’s Made: Frye


Killer boots, man. Ever wonder how they got that way? If we’re talking Frye Boots, the answer is hours, upon hours of precise cutting, hand-stitching, weathering, dying…maybe even a run-in with a blow torch. A total of 190 steps goes into each pair.

After all of that prep work, it’s little wonder that these beautiful booties come backed with a warranty. Yes, a warranty, on boots. They’re good. Almost too good.
