Creative Director for The Frye Company Michael Petry says the boot maker's 150th anniversary style "Prison Boot" is actually modeled after the shoes issued out to Arkansas prisoners.
In a recent interview with fashion magazine Garmental, Petry explained the design is one of his favorites from this year's line. he did point out, though, that for their version, priced at $350 on the Frye website, "we remade it and made it a little more comfortable."
