Wow, I got quite possibly the BEST deal ever yesterday! I went to a well-known thrift shop on the North Side, and I scored a pair of authentic Frye Boots for $6.00. I couldn't believe my eyes! They're dark-brown leather, already broken in, with the F logo and the ring & strap detail. I'm in love! I wore them today to go to Chinatown, and they were super-comfy! I can't believe my good luck!
