Inspired by the traditional folksong, the tough and rugged Frankie is named after the legendary scorned lover who shot her beloved Johnny after finding him with another woman. Featuring thick, wrinkled full grain leathers and a half-inside zipper makes The Frankie the ultimate, indestructible kneehigh boot. After construction, the Frankie is finished in an industrial washing machine, giving it its aged look. Soled with the classic, 100% vulcanized rubber F-Sole (a time-tested sole since 1997), renowned for its comfort and durability. The Frankie has excellent traction on ice, snow, slush and even retains heat - if left in a warm dry area overnight, it will give you hours of toasty toes in the winter.
