Espresso Spazzolato
Quantity:
Our modern take on a classic penny loafer. Handcrafted in a bold espresso spazzolato, the ELBA updates the timeless style with our signature notched welt and angled leather heel. We’ll live in these loafers with everything from oversized suits, to cuffed jeans and socks to long skirts.

Our shoes are made from the highest quality leather which will last season after season. Leather is a natural material and will give with wear.

  • 100% Italian leather in espresso spazzolato
  • 0.75" angled heel with leather sole
  • Leather and rubber split chip heel cap for enhanced durability

This material may feel snug when you first put them on. This is normal as they will need a little breaking in to make them yours. Before you know it, the leather will take the shape of your foot and become your everyday favorite. We suggest wearing them with socks around the house until they soften.

  • Recommendation: The length of this style is running slightly long. If you are narrow or in between sizes, we recommend 1/2 sizing down.
  • ELBA is the last used for this loafer. Learn more about lasts here.

The Italian definition of Spazzolato translates to "brushed". This leather is a high shine, full-grain leather that achieves it's luster and depth of color after a great deal of brushing by hand and polishing wheels. It's a very durable leather and easy to maintain, but is still susceptible to marks as you begin to wear. To clean, wipe dirt or other spills off the leather with a damp cloth, then pat dry. Spazzolato requires only an occasional polish with a cloth or light leather conditioner. Please test the cleaner on a small portion of your shoe to ensure no discoloration before applying all over. We advise against using any cleaning products, as they will damage the leather. We recommend cleaning periodically or as needed to keep your FRĒDAs looking brand new.

The ELBA is hand-sewn in our San Salvador, El Salvador, family factory. Our Co-Founder's grandfather started manufacturing shoes 67 years ago, and our hand-sewn Moccasins are produced in a factory that her father started in the 1980s. This factory is one of the last hand-sewn moccasin factories in the world—a true testament to artisanal craftsmanship and passing down this skill from generation to generation.

    ELBA PENNY LOAFER 7.5 / Sand Embossed Croc
    Rated 5 out of 5 stars
    perfect neutral shoe for the spring/summer!

    I originally came in looking for a black loafer but ended up leaving the shop with these. So comfortable to wear and I didn't need to break them in at all. I like to wear my loafers without socks or very thin ones so ended up sizing half a size down from my usual size.

    Beautiful!

    These loafers are timeless! The color and embossed leather are truly unique in a sea of the usual loafers. The detailed shape of the heel is especially eye catching. Comfort is decent, a little stiff at the collar but nothing a few wears won’t soften up. I’m 7.5 and got my usual size, have a slightly wide foot.

    The Unique Stylish Loafer

    I love them, I deliberated buying them for months. Then finally said, " when you love something that much, you need to purchase it!" Wear them pants, shorts and dresses. I am throughly enjoying them.

    Thank uou
