Looking For The Ultimate Rockstar Boots For Men?
If you're serious about the rocker look, then you need a pair of Frye Harness Boots. Period. They've been on the feet of the world's biggest rockstars for generations, it's almost like they are the unofficial footwear of rock.
If you're unfamiliar with Frye, they've been around forever. Don't ask me how long, because I honestly don't know. And even more honestly, I don't care. That's because in my mind, it doesn't matter how long you've been around if you make good stuff. Quality is quality, the rest is just details. I'll let the bean counters of the world hem and haw over the minutiae, I'd rather spend my time rocking.
But the point is, Frye has some awesome stuff. Really awesome stuff. But again, I really don't give a hoot about most of their shoes or boots, simply because I'm only interested in the rockstar look - and nothing says "Rock" like Frye's motorcycle boots - the harness varieties to be exact.
But here's the problem: Real rockers only wear quality stuff. And quality stuff costs money. Usually a butt ton of it. So don't expect to walk away from Payless Shoes with authentic looking rockstar boots for men, you'll only look (and probably feel) like a complete idiot. So it's a trade off; how important is wearing the real thing? If you're like me, there is no compromise for the real thing.
Besides, men's Frye harness boots are made from real leather - no synthetics or plastic crap here; and while that might cost a bit more up front, they'll last longer in the end. Some of my friends are still wearing their Frye's that they've purchased almost a decade ago, and they don't look any worse for wear. Knowing that these can take any abuse you can throw at them made it a no-brainer for me. And it's that "survival in the harshest conditions" that likely made these such a popular choice amongst the hard rock crowd.
Don't pay an arm and a leg for a pair of real mens rockstar boots
While you can find these at boutique shops and online retailers for as much as $500 per pair (and they're worth every penny, even at that price), you can cut that price in half if you know where to shop...
Don't be surprised if people on the street assume you're a rock 'n roll legend once you start strutting your stuff in these. Pair them with some tight jeans or even leather pants, a tough shirt or leather jacket, some messy "I don't care" rockstar hair and a guitar or pair of drumsticks. The way these make you feel is indescribable.
Or, if you're weird, you can wear them to the office. Imagine the reputation you'll get when you show up for a morning meeting wearing some rockstar boots for men instead of the usual pair of loafers or something equally ridiculous.
Want Cheap Frye Harness 12R Boots?
The chain boots I mentioned above are, as I said, the flagship of the company's harness lineup. And while they are probably the best overall rockstar boots you'll ever find, you can save almost $100 by buying the "next step down." Don't worry, I'm still talking about Frye's, so you'll still look like the real deal, and they still have the trademark buckle and harness system, so nobody will mistake you for an accountant.
In fact, Frye's entire lineup of harness boots is amazing. Don't think that by "settling" for one of these options that you're selling out or being a poser. Far from it. In fact, many rockers actually prefer these over the big, fancy chain boots.
Again, I'm not going to waste your time giving you a handful of places that sell them. I'm going to cut straight to the chase:
Shop Endless.com's entire lineup of Frye Harness Boots - some are less than $200 per pair! That's right, you can get the awesome rockstar look for about two hundred bucks. Again, you won't find prices like this anywhere else, I know because I've looked. I've seen Fryes in my local specialty boot shops for about $500 and elsewhere online for more than $300. Why waste your money? Pick these up at the killer price of about $200 to $250 and get straight to the rocking.
Who Wears Frye Rockstar Boots?
Pretty much any big name in rock has strutted their stuff in a pair of Fryes. I could probably create a list a mile long, but here are a few to whet your whistle:
- Slash of Guns 'n Roses & Velvet Revolver
- Joe Perry of Aerosmith
- Kieth Richards of The Rolling Stones
- Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi
- Matt Sorum of The Cure, Guns 'n Roses & Velvet Revolver
- Nikki Sixx of Motley Crew & Sixx: AM
I could go on, but I think you get my point. These boots have a massive rockstar pedigree that goes back generations, yet is still as evident in some of todays hardest rocking acts, such as:
- Puddle Of Mudd
- Papa Roach
And that's just to name a few. If you start paying attention, I bet you'll start recognizing these on the feet of just about any established rockstar that visits your town.
So if you're looking for real rockstar boots for men, don't look any further than these.
