Frye: These Boots Were Made For...
SHOP THE POST
I’ve always prided myself on my discernment of passing trends; I’ve never been one to hop on board with a trend if it’s not actually flattering or sensical from a style perspective.
A few I will never adopt: the bicycle shorts trend (no explanation necessary), the gladiator sandal (not flattering on anyone except maybe 6'0 runway models), and the open-toe boot trend (what is the point of boots if your toes are left out in the cold?!). One trend I am very much adopting right now, however, is the very-hot-right-now hiker boot. As I get older I have less and less patience for uncomfortable footwear (as with less and less shame in admitting it!), so a trend that actually marries comfort and style is a welcome one.
I’ve been a Frye fan for years now. Their boots are like a reliable friend—they only get better and more comfortable with time. They manage to combine wearable style with old-world craftsmanship which, in a sea of fast-fashion buys that last about a season before falling apart, is very welcome. When partnering with them, I legitimately had a hard time narrowing down to just one pick, but I’d been coveting the perfect hiker boot for awhile so this “Addie” hiker just stood out to me. You guys know how much I love fashion dichotomies, so a rugged boot made slightly feminine by a high-but-not-too-high-heel had my name on it.
I’ve rounded up my other personal favorite Frye styles below. I’ve included the pairs I was debating on choosing (namely the Samantha Stud Belted Hiker and the Lila Sock Boot), as well as my favorite sale styles because who doesn’t love a sale? :)
