Squishy insoles that feel good in the store, don’t usually hold up by the end of a long day and wear down quickly. Famolare's perfectly padded long lasting insoles sit on top of quality rubber soles that will last 20 years or more. It’s that perfect blend of high quality raw materials that are mostly sourced locally, combined with the patented wavy sole design and quality hand-craftsmanship that provides the stability, enhanced gait, and long-lasting comfort you feel as you walk or stand on your feet all day. Famolares are designed to conform to your feet. They will likely add some pep to your step and maybe even make you feel like dancing

The Frye Company is the oldest continuously operated shoe company in the United States. When homesteaders headed west from New England in the mid and late 1800's many wore Frye boots. Frye Wellingtons, called Jet Boots, outfitted thousands of soldiers during WW2. In the 1960's Frye refreshed its original boot and brought the world the Campus boot. Its bulky toe and chunky heel came to epitomize the culture of the 60s and the 70s. When the Smithsonian Institute went looking for items that best represented American culture in the 60s it chose this boot and it remains on display to this day. When you buy Frye footwear you step into a personal piece of American culture and craftsmanship.
