RALF is handmade at our family-owned factory in the traditional footwear town of Elda, Spain. Our leather is sourced from the finest tanneries across Italy. Each upper is cut, sewn and lasted by Spanish artisans who are experts in their craft. Our components are developed and tested with neighboring factories in Elda, and perfected by FREDA’s design team in Sausalito. Every pair of the women's lace-up combat boot is hand finished from the custom grommet eyelets down to the sole.

Our tumbled and smooth calf leathers are very high quality and should last for years. To keep the leather clean, moisturized, durable, and elastic, your shoes should be polished once a month. If excess dirt gets on your shoes, take a slightly damp soft cloth, paper towel, or clean makeup sponge and wipe gently. If the stain is tougher, try leather cleaner. Keep in mind, never use leather cleaner with acid or detergent as it will age the leather and shorten the lifespan of your shoes. Please test the cleaner on a small portion of your shoe to make sure there will be no discoloration. In general, it is also highly recommended to take your shoes to a cobbler to be professionally cleaned.
FRĒDA SALVADOR shoes are all handmade in Spain using the finest leathers. Because of this, each pair will have unique variations, we love this about our shoes and hope you do too. Depending on how often you wear your FRĒDAS, what kind of terrain you are walking on, and how hard you are on your shoes will factor into the longevity of your shoes.

- SSAKVerified Buyer10 months agoReviewingRALF LACE UP BOOTRated 5 out of 5 starsPerfection!
Rarely do products exceed expectations anymore - these do. Some of my favorite details: strong but delicate laces, rubber layer below leather sole that even “luxury” brands don’t give you…ok, I love everything about them!! I thought I wanted the ACE because that’s what pulled me in, but these are more versatile to dress up/down. They’re so pretty they don’t need more heel. Maybe I’ll have to get the ACE in brown suede for Summer. I did go with my usual size (6) and they are snug as noted but I do believe they’ll absolutely mold to my feet over the years that we will be together.
- SDSharon D.Verified Buyer1 year agoReviewingRALF LACE UP BOOTRated 5 out of 5 starsYou want these!
Listen! These boots are the ENTIRE and COMPLETE truth. I usually wear a size 9. When shoes/boots run small U wear a 9.5 or 10. Not knowing the fit, I ordered a zuze 10, but exchanged for a 9.5. This boot us BEAUTIFUL, the leather is superb, the silver hardware is like jewelry. The fit is PERFECT and they are very comfortable. Worth EVERY penny. BRAVO Freda Salvador!
- TBTaylor B.Verified Buyer1 year agoReviewingRALF LACE UP BOOTRated 4 out of 5 starsGorgeous shoes! Would purchase again. AND wide feet natives, beware!
I love these boots. They're absolutely incredible. My dream boot, aesthetically-speaking. I can't say this enough. I usually wear a 9 but went up a size, per Freda Salvador's recommendation for people with wide feet. They were still *really* tight though. I wish I had gotten a 10. I stretched the leather out myself, mostly by wearing them, but this was actually pretty painful and I had to do it really slowly. I know this is not recommended so I own all responsibility for that choice. I had to make it work given I'd just spent $500. I will also say that these boots are really hard on my knees. I live in Seattle WA and walk around * a lot*. My knees have felt sore ever since purchasing and wearing them for every day wear. I'm purchasing insoles to relieve this problem. So! Make sure you get the right size and you might want some insoles.
- MBMonique B.Verified Buyer2 years agoReviewingRALF LACE UP BOOTRated 5 out of 5 starsSo good!
I absolutely love these combat boots. The grommet details are gorgeous in person. They are perfect with the current trending wide/straight leg jean cut. They also look great with a dress if you want to show a little leg. I wear a 9, and bought a 9. I wish I'd sized up to leave room for socks, but I'm making it work.

The epitome of beauty and class are these stunners! I wanted them and waited forever...my only regret is not buying them sooner!
