Today, Frye enjoys a good reputation as suppliers of beautiful, comfortable shoes. If Frye boots are available on sale, make sure you get a pair for yourself, as this brand will become invaluable in your closet!
The Frye shoe company uses leather that is tanned with natural oils to ensure comfort, durability and style. The materials are produced in some of the top tanneries all across the globe. Some of the most common varieties of leather used in Frye boots include:
Glazed vintage leather: This leather is split for tanning, waxing, burning and washing. The result is that the shoes produce a cracked glaze and finish which has a vintage appeal.
Dakota: This form of leather is a chrome tanned leather. This produces the iconic ‘crunch’ effect.
Oiled suede: It is a thick and tough material for the enormous amounts of oil mixed into the leather. This gives it a soft suede feel.
Soft full grain leather: If you are looking for Frye boots for sale which have a slouchy and soft appeal, you should buy the ones made of soft full grain leather. This softness is achieved after the leather is treated in the specialized drums and stretched.
Vintage tumbled full grain: This leather is also tumbled in specialized drums to give a natural distressed appearance along with a soft feel.
