Last Wednesday we were so excited to celebrate with The Frye Company, America’s oldest operating footwear company, as they hosted a private event to commemorate their 150th anniversary and the opening of a stunning new flagship store, in Chicago at Oak and Rush. The brand’s Creative Director Michael Petry was in attendance to mix and mingle with more than 300 fans of The Frye Company. The playlist for the evening was provided by DJ Matt Roan and also featured a live set by up-and-coming band Blondfire, all decked in Frye footwear.
