When was the last time you bought a pair of boots for under $200? (Prying a pair of Chloés free from the grips of a Scarsdale soccer mom at Saks doesn't count.) Frye's Harness 12R Leather Riding Boots can be yours for just that amount, minus the skipping work and clobbering crowds. It's a riding boot with a motorcycle edge, meaning it can go from Westport to the West Village with ease, and maybe just an untucking of the jean. And though the price may read standard, the look of the worn-in leather and tarnished brass reads anything but.
