Chicago: The Frye Company
It's officially my 3rd month as a Chicago resident! Besides getting used to the frigid temperatures (which, thankfully, have begun to subside), I've been spending most of my time getting to know my new home. So far, I've learned that:
(a) my Husky-looking pups LOVE it here
(b) this city is a coffee-lovers dream come true (you haven't had coffee until you've gotten an espresso at Gas Light)
(c) the potholes here can devour your entire car if you're not careful
(d) Chicago natives don't mess around when it comes to shoes. They just don't.
Sure, you could get away with owning a few pairs of heels and flip-flops in Miami, but not here. Some of the best leather companies in the world operate out of this city, and I have never seen so many high quality leather boutiques in my life.
Needless to say, choosing the shoe that was going to be replacing my havaianas was tough with all the choices I had. It doesn't surprise me that my new go-to boots are made by The Frye Company, who, not only use incredible quality leather, but also have an all-American look I love. The Jackie Gore Stitching Horse, in particular, feels like it was made for me. They certainly make this Miami girl feel like she fits in!
