The Frye Company has spawned a new line — a curated collection of artisan-inspired trend-driven looks under the Frye and Co. label.
The collection, which debuts today exclusively online, offers styles for both men and women and taps into Frye’s storied history dating back to 1863 when John A. Frye opened a shop on Marlboro, Mass. This was followed by the debut of the company’s first boot in 1888. In the 1840s, the company expanded its offering with the introduction of Western boots. The brand did its part during World War II, supplying boots to U.S. servicemen, including General Patton.

Frye and Co., will focus on consumers from 18 to 32, with a college crowd as its target audience. To appeal to this crowd, prices range from $69 for sneakers to $198 for tall boots. Currently, a collection under the Frye and Co. label is available on QVC.com, with a selection of styles exclusive to the retailer.
Kicking off the launch is a range of women’s boots that include classic ankle styles on Western-inspired heels, tailored looks on stacked block heels and Western versions in solid and leopard prints. Tapping into the clog trend, there are styles on wooden clog bottoms, in addition to tall boots that are making a comeback this season.
For men, the brand goes rugged with a series of work-inspired styles to dressier chukkas and Chelsea styles.
With today’s launch coinciding with Hunger Action Day, the company is continuing its long-standing support of Feeding America, where $2 of every boot purchased will be donated to the charity.
