Black Vegetable Calf

Please note: This style is final sale.

Your everyday slide. Made by hand with our signature black vegetable calf, the MARTA has a cool square toe, a cloud-like padded footbed and a modern crisscross band. We love this style with both cuffed jeans and a silk dress alike.

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.

Vegetable tanning is a traditional process where the cowhide is treated with plant-based tannins, so it develops a patina over time. This means shoes made in this very natural leather will develop a beautifully aged look. Keep in mind that the surface of the leather is not treated with chemicals or finishes so there may be minor variations to the leather that define their uniqueness.

To clean, use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to remove dirt. You can apply neutral, non-lanolin wax to revive and restore leather. Do not use any leather soaps, cleaners, or conditioners with lanolin. When not in use, store your shoes in a box or dust bag. We recommend cleaning periodically or as needed to keep your FRĒDAs looking brand new.

The MARTA 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.
