Boot up like Katniss in 'The Hunger Games' with Frye Co.
As the hunger for all things "Hunger Games" continues unabated, we expect that just about any brand with a connection to the movie will be letting the world know about it, and in today's inbox was a press release from the Frye Co. letting us know that a pair of its boots appear on screen worn by Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen.
The Great Neck, N.Y., based boot company, which traces its roots back to 1863, notes that in an early forest scene with Gale (played by Liam Hemsworth), Lawrence is shod in a pair of its Melissa Tall Lace boots in dark brown.
Said boots retail for $398 at the brand's website, which means they either cost Katniss a lot of squirrels or the boots are just so rugged they've lasted well into the dystopian future to be passed down by generations of District 12's Everdeen family.
Either way, if you're looking to boot up like a pre-Reaping Katniss, this is your chance to put an authentic foot forward.
