This year the retail design industry presented the 2017 Shop! Design Store of the Year award to the FRYE Cherry Creek location—and it’s no surprise why. The Frye Company flexes its craftsmanship muscles not only with its American leather footwear but also to the space that displays it.
The 2,200-square-foot shop seamlessly blends the quality of the brand’s 154-year history with modern ski-lodge-inspired style.
The signature harness ring chandelier —comprised of 10,000 harness rings—hangs on 2,500 leather straps, speaking to the authentic artistry at the heart of The Frye Company’s work.
The interior boasts an ambiance that is warm and inviting, including a functioning fireplace enclosed in stone sourced from local quarries.
A little background on Frye:
In 1863, John A. Frye opened the doors to his very first store, paving the way for countless generations of artisans. As the original craftsmen of American footwear, Frye continues to honor a passion for creating iconic styles using the finest leathers. Rooted in tradition, Frye was originally inspired by our everyday American heroes over the decades: cavalry infantrymen, World War II soldiers, fighter pilots, factory workers. Frye has since become an American icon, worn by the courageous and the cool, from John Lennon to Jackie O.
