The motorcycle boot is perhaps the most versatile type of footwear since the ballerina flat. Motorcycle boots can be worn with anything from leather jackets and skinny jeans to flowery summer dresses, provided you can stand wearing them in the heat.
The Frye Company, founded in 1863 by John A. Frye, has perhaps been making these tall work boots the longest. Union and Confederate soldiers wore these boots during America’s Civil War, as well as soldiers in the Spanish-American War.
The Frye Company’s updated boot designs are rugged, comfortable and very well-made. Many other designers have released their own take on this classic boot. Their interpretations range from the high and perfectly-constructed boots at Miu Miu to the sublimely affordable with the recent addition of a tough boot to FCUK.
