Herb Spazzolato

Waitlist
Our modern take on a classic penny loafer. Handcrafted in a bold herb 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 herb spazzolato. This tannery is rated Leather Working Group Registered and leather contains no PFAs. Leather Working Group is a tool to evaluate the environmental performance of leather goods manufacturers.
  • 100% Calf leather lined.
  • Notched leather welt
  • Leather sueded sole
  • 0.75" leather-stacked flared heel

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.

  • 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 boot. 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 9.5 / Hickory Embossed Croc with Hardware
    Rated 4 out of 5 stars
    Love these but finding it hard to break in

    I was on a waitlist for this pair for months and couldn’t wait to purchase! They are gorgeous and high quality but I’m finding them quite stiff and it’s taking awhile to break in. Maybe I need to spend more time with socks and wear them around the house, but have worn them 5 times with bare feet and even with minimal walking (at the office) I can feel blisters forming in a few spots. I bought my usual 9.5 and have high arches.

    Elba Loafer

    Love them. Bought the Herb color and have worn them for several long days with no socks. Color will work well all year around. I have had no issues breaking them in. Very well made shoe that will last for years. I wear a 6.5 or 7 normally and found the 6.5 more comfortable for this shoe.

    Love them!.

    The shoe was a little tight at first. As with all excellent leather shoes, I knew they would stretch just enough to fit perfectly! I love them and expect to wear them for years.

    Rated 4 out of 5 stars
    Looks great but very long break-in process

    I would love to give these a 5.... they definitely are a 5 in looks. Maybe it's only me, but the process of breaking in these shoes is long and painful. My heels are bandaged up but I expect these to be perfectly molded to my feet eventually
