The recently-opened location houses the boots that make the classic American brand, well, class, but also captures the spirit and meticulous detailing that goes into all of their rich leather goods. Shoppers are not just picking up a pair of boots here — you can finding your perfect match with a private-fit specialist or customize your style with personalized hot stamping (also complimentary for current Frye boot owners who bring in a pair).
