Spring is soo close we are already feeling it. Who would have guessed we’d get 60 degree weather in February!!?? Well, no complaining on our end. That just means you can start wearing your new Spring Oxfords sooner. : ) Check out the new styles we just got in from Frye, Miista and Jeffrey Campbell.
Frye “Maggie” $198
Put away your notions about cowboy boots, because the Frye‘s “Shirley” boot is good lookin’ twist on the classic cowboy boot that knows how to shake it down–more than the “Grapevine.” In an off-beat color of “natural,” we like this boot mostly for its is atypical shaft height–mid-calf or about 8″ high. Plus, the huarache-woven design along with the studs and the stacked heel makes us feel like hey, maybe, we could go to a rodeo and be the chicest cowgirl there ever was. To get the “Shirley” and shake it down, be willing to pay for the high quality of the brand and the hand-made attention: $288. Frye boots only get better with time, and that’s a fact. We speak from experience, because we’ve been shakin’ it down for years in Frye boots again and again.
It’s true when they say that when when something is crafted or hand-made, it’s a site to be seen, and the same applies to shoes. And one look at The Frye Company’s boots, gives you the notion, you’re seeing a boot made by a true “craft master.” We want to make sure we’re still keepin’ a few fresh boots for the transitional weather temperatures ahead, so we went ahead and made sure to have the “Samantha” boot by Frye in stock. If you’re at all familiar with the quality and leather goods their boots are made up then you’ve got to understand their asking price and not be turned off. So we’ll flat out tell you, it’s $498. But “why,” may you ask? Because this knee-high riding-style boot from Frye features a detailed woven shaft and collar overlay. And other nice details include hidden elastic at the collar for fit and flexibility, double pull-up tabs, and a multi-colored stacked heel. For all of that is why the asking price for the leather crafted boot sits at that price. Plus, we think it’s worth mentioning that or the ever-changing temperature ahead you can wear them with tights or jeans and get more months’ worth out of them then you think. Craftsmanship comes at a price, but one that takes you into years and years of wear.
For our last part in our series, we decided to take a step back from the wedge, since we know not all you ladies out there are into the added height, or those extra inches. Some of you are lucky already to have the height built-in and need something a lil’ bit lower, a bit calmer perhaps? Well then, the “Maya” peep-toe is for you. With only 2.5″ to its name, the soft leather (in black or yellow) is calling your name. The tiny studs that outline the design, plus the toe-bow, yes, the “toe-bow” that’s what we’re calling it, is a cute, but not too cute (hence the metal stud detail) added design element. We also saved the cheaper of the three-part series for last, this all-leather sandal is only $168, and if you know Frye, then you understand why it’s worth the price for the leather quality you’ll receive. But you have to ask (for the Maya), then you shall receive.
In Part II of this week’s designer series, we give you another wedge. Yes, that’s right. We told you how they’re making a comeback in our previous post. And now you can maybe start to believe us. We tell no lies here at the SM. You’ll soon be saying the word in your sleep, we think: wedge, wedge, wedge. And this wedge, the “Shay” is no different from “Rosy Honeycomb” in its lil’ wild side. Like we said before, not for the easy-come-easy-go kind of girl with shoes. Want to make a soft statement? Then cream is the best bet of a color to do that with. For $218, Frye’s supple leather wraps around the foot with this sandal’s funky leaf detail and all-leather wedge. The cork gives extra comfort in the platform while the footbed has extra padding inserted in it as well. Frye always looks to do at least something funk-ay with the foot, and this season, it’s with the Shay. Say it all together now: Funk-ay, Shay, Funk-ay, Shay. . .
The wedge for rockstars. That’s what we’re calling this new large-and-in-charge shoe from Frye this season. The “Rosy Honeycomb” keeps it real with Frye’s signature quality leather ( in cobalt blue no less!) accented with tarnished-looking studs and the wooden wedge. Now we know that a sandal like this isn’t for the every day woman, but that’s not why we decided to spring for the Rosy Honeycomb. We wanted something extra special to sit among all the other wedges and sandals that were bound to be snatched up quickly. So for $248, we decided to offer the right Frye kind of woman a shoe prize worthy of the big bucks. Yesterday, a mal customer made the bold proclamation (or at least for him it was a bold enlightenment), that “wedges are back.” He seemed so proud to have come to this realization on his own, and by all means, he’s right. Wedges are making a comeback and for good reason–they’re just more practical. And for your first look at Frye this season, come try the comeback on with the Rosy Honeycomb.
It’s officially fall. And something about the season sparks in you the urge to purchase boots, even though two months or more before winter will really set in. And if you’re looking for the best in the boot business, don’t dodge Frye Boots. Let’s get this first out of the way: yes, they are expensive, and yes, they’re an investment. But it’s one investment that will surely last a good 10 years and is worth the forked over hard earned cash. They’re hand made, the best leather on the leather block, and come in classic styles and colors that will last years in your wardrobe. Take the boot plunge with Frye for fall.
The first boot we’re carrying at SM is the Dorado Riding for $458. You may start to think you want to ride horseback after slipping these boots on, but speaking from experience, they wear in so nice and the antique brass on the buckles is a nice touch of quality.
We’ve also got the Melissa Riding Tall for $378. The deep brown red color of this boot is striking and not so typical, which I like. It’s a nice alternative to the straight up black and brown.
And last but not least, we have for $328 the Simone Cuff in brown. Now, I won’t lie to you, that this brown actually looks more like a dark gray in person, but it’s still just as cute, if not even cuter. And if you’re not a fan of the cuff, pull it up! Multi-functional with some nice stitching detail–that’s just how Frye does it.
