Footwear with Heirloom Potential

Frye Dakota Mid Lace Boot


Known for their durable, classic boots, the Dakota Mid Lace is a classic style anyone should consider owning. Taller than a chukka and secure around the ankle, whether you by them for fashion or day hikes with friends, these boots are built for walking just about anywhere. Great with jeans or chinos, their Americana appeal is legendary and if taken proper care of, can last long enough to pass down to your kids. So keep that in mind as you balk at their $170 price.

Cost: $170
