Frye® Shoe & Boot Repair
The Frye Company was founded in 1863 in Marlboro, Massachusetts by John A. Frye. According to the book “Frye: The Boots That Made History:150 Years of Craftsmanship”, quite a few famous, contemporary personalities have worn Frye boots including John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Julia Roberts to name just a few. The book also mentions that John Frye opened his small shop for the purpose of easing the life of the factory workers that lived in the area at the time.
If you visit the company’s website where they have a historical timeline, you will notice that the company created its first pair of boots in 1888 and was one of the first factories in Marlboro to make the switch from steam to electrical power in 1889 which was highly innovative at the time. By the time World War II arrived, Frye was producing boots for the United States military which were worn on both the European and Pacific fronts by ordinary servicemen and even General Patton himself.
Rago Brothers has certainly not been in business as long as The Frye Company, but during our own 100+ years of existence we have repaired tens of thousands of pairs of Frye shoes, boots, and accessories.
