After more than a century of mastering exceptional leather footwear, Frye has applied its' craftsmanship to something a little bigger—a flagship store on Spring Street in Soho. 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). Of course, we couldn't wait to dish on the beautifully rugged interior, which features 15-foot ceilings, exposed brick walls, reclaimed barn doors, as well as other eco-minded features— all of which have earned it LEED certification.

Check out these snaps for lots of luxe leather eye-candy and the coolest vintage workshop-inspired space to drop in the middle of a metropolis.
