The Thursday Buy: FRYE Is Making Some of the Best Men’s Boots for Fall

It’s a lofty goal to achieve: Making some of the best boots for fall, and doing so consistently for seasons and years at a time. If you can believe it though, that’s what FRYE has managed to do for well over a century, and although the legendary bootmaker is using different methods and modern materials than days gone by, that heritage and history still stands out. It all comes together at once in a pair of boots like the FRYE William Boots, some of the best and most rugged lace-up boots you’re apt to find on the market. And the timing has never been better to add a new pair to your rotation, seeing as we sit on the cusp of October and the promise of crisp, breezy fall weather. Where to start with these boots? Well, there’s plenty to love.

Rugged style awaits with heritage-quality boots

First things first, it’s worth noting that FRYE boots are an investment, and yet one that’s going to pay off handsomely over time (and you can also find some FRYE boots on sale if you know where to look). In the case of the FRYE William Boots, the stage has assuredly been set when it comes to rugged, dependable performance and serious style. The rich brandy leather is practically the perfect shade of leather for fall, easily worn with tan or navy chinos, burgundy corduroy trousers or your favorite pair of broken-in blue denim. Of course, the right shade of leather is nothing without proper construction and durability.

If you want sleek construction and comfort in spades, plus that winning style we know is so crucial for fall, then the FRYE William Lace-Up Boots are the pair to buy now. That rich brandy leather (my personal favorite) sits atop a rubber outsole for added durability, crucial as you stomp through the city on blustery fall days. And your new favorite pair of leather boots has quite a few other things going for it, naturally. They’re Goodyear-welted, an extra step in terms of craftsmanship that means these boots can be resoled after years of wear. They’ll certainly only get better with age, too.

And the FRYE William Lace-Up Boots feature some smaller touches that make them streamlined and able to be worn with even a tailored wool suit. Note the fact that the eyelets for these boots are hidden, and the laces are made from rounded, waxed cotton — this is a another design detail that makes them a more slimmed-down, sleek pair of boots. As I called out before, the FRYE William Lace-Up Boots won’t come cheap — they’ll run you $328 at FRYE, but they’re more than worth that price tag. They’re also a fast-selling pair of leather boots for fall, so be sure you get yours while they’re still around.

The really excellent thing has got to be the fact that, like all remarkably durable shoes, the FRYE Grant Oxford Shoes are crafted with care from premium materials.

The FRYE Grant Oxford Shoes are every single thing you need in classic brown leather lace-up dress shoes, and then some.

Plus, the rich brown leather will shine right up if you use the excellent, aforementioned FRYE Leather Care Kit, a must-have if you’ve got multiple weddings on the docket this season. The FRYE Grant Oxford Shoes feature a sleek profile that you can also wear with dark blue denim for business casual office settings, but it’s that “outdoor summer wedding” environment where these will really shine.

Style Pick of the Week: FRYE Bowery Lace-Up Leather Boots

Some of the best men’s leather boots, made the right way by FRYE.

Another week, another pair of the best leather boots for men as we head ever closer toward fall. I don’t know about you, but I always look forward to and appreciate the crisp, cold fall air, the changing seasons and some fall-centric activities (Oktoberfest beer or hot apple cider, anyone?). And I frequently find myself reaching for some rugged leather boots, a la the FRYE Bowery Lace-Up Leather Boots shown above. They’ve got all the trappings of a pair of classic leather boots, right on down to the sleek-yet-tough plain toe construction, with a bit of an added edge — these stylish boots feature a side zip, giving them a bit more dressy appeal.

What that means for you is, you can team these FRYE leather boots with everything from wool trousers and a chambray shirt to rugged camp pants and a thermal henley without missing a beat. That’s the FRYE way, after all. They’re a heritage bootmaker for men and women with tons of history. Founded in Marlboro, Ma. in 1863 (yes, 1863!), they’ve never really wavered from the kind of quality leather boots that last and last … and last. It’s seriously impressive, and that’s what makes these some of the best boots for men you’ll be snapping up this season.

SHOP: The FRYE Bowery Leather Lace-Up Boots 

A versatile pair of leather boots with both dressy and rugged appeal.

Keep in mind, these FRYE leather boots are indeed on the pricier side ($358), but consider them in the same league as, say, rugged Red Wing Heritage leather boots … but with dressier styling potential. In my mind, that makes ’em worth every penny. The leather and rubber outsole adds durability and traction through slick fall weather, while waxed cotton laces tie everything together (literally) with more versatility than regular work boot laces. Again, these are a pair of sleek leather boots to wear with everything from your favorite blue jeans and a shawl cardigan to slim tan chinos and a classic Oxford shirt. Add a denim jacket or a chore coat, then call it good for fall adventures. No doubt about it, the FRYE Bowery Lace-Up Leather Boots are going to be in your rotation for a good while, all thanks to the Goodyear welt construction and tough finishing details like antique brass hardware. Need to snag a pair of your new favorite boots for fall? Well, you’ve found ’em here.
