Our modern take on a classic penny loafer. Handcrafted in a bold combination bark suede, 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.
We handcraft our shoes with the highest quality leather designed to last season after season. Leather is a natural material and will give with wear. At first, these shoes may feel snug but will loosen as they break in.
- 100% Italian leather in brown suede combos
- 0.75" angled heel with leather sole
- Leather and rubber split chip heel cap for enhanced durability
- Available in whole and half sizes 6-10
ELBA is a round toe with a roomier fit meant to be worn with and without socks. Please note if your foot is very narrow you may need to half size down. ELBA is the last used for this loafer.

The ELBA is hand sewn in our family factory in San Salvador, El Salvador. Our Co-Founder's grandfather started producing shoes 67 years ago and our hand sewn Moccasins are produced in a factory that was started by her father in the 1980's. 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 generation to generation.
The best way to care for suede is prevention, as this will help minimize damage from moisture, oil, dirt, salt, and hopefully prevent staining. Water and stain guards can be purchased at a cobbler or drugstore. Please test the stain guard on a small section of your shoes before you treat the whole pair.
Suede should be kept out of direct sunlight for long periods of time, as it is especially prone to fade. If a shoe gets wet, soak up the moisture as soon as possible with a clean towel and allow it to air dry, then brush the nap with a suede brush. For regular suede maintenance, a suede brush can be used to refresh the nap of the suede.
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.
