Now based in Portland, Oregon, Charles Danner started this legacy back in 1932 in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Their commitment to manufacturing in the US has seen Danner bring more and more manufacturing back to the US each year.

Dating back, quite incredibly, to 1863 when John A. Frye opened the very first store in Marlboro, MA, Frye has been crafting quality leather footwear. Since then, their history is a rich one; from being worn by the US military during World War II, launching the first Frye cowboy boot and also being spotted on the feet of famous figures such as Jackie Kennedy, Barbara Streisand and President Nixon. Quality craftsmanship never fades, after all.
