This Frye Jenna luxurious leather slim fitting boot has a classic appeal, and characterizes the style that the Frye brand is known for. The Frye company is the original sequentially managed shoe company in the United States. Established in 1863 by it’s founder John A. Frye, the company was the predominant footwear of soldiers in several American wars and favored by Teddy Roosevelt, America’s 26th president. Today, Frye boots remain apodictic to its origins with its collection of heritage boots, while remaining innovational and focused on quality.
Due to the boot’s structure, some women with regular sized legs may find it too tight in the calf area. The design seems geared toward skinny, slim leg shapes with smaller calves. What’s more, sizes tend to run small, therefore it is advised to buy a size larger than normal. Prices vary with size as well.
FRYE boots have essentially stayed true to form by not swaying too much from their original concept. For example, some previous style like the Frye Tabitha have a similar look to the Frye Women’s Jenna design, though the Tabitha design looks a bit slimmer on the leg. One of the key differences with the Jenna is that the leather is more firm and will stand-up on their own when you aren’t wearing them.
Overall, the Frye Women’s narrow calf riding boot’s quality and sustainability are not in question. The full-height design with seamless shaft construction, flawless stitching, and the traditional Wellington shape merging foot-to-shaft, is a versatile piece of footwear that suits a number of lifestyles. Whatever your reason for purchasing your Jenna Inside-Zip boot, you won’t be disappointed, as the rustic sleek design gives your boot infinite appeal.
