Our modern take on a classic penny loafer. Handcrafted in a citron 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.

These shoes may feel snug at first but will loosen as they break in. 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.

  • 100% Italian leather in citron stain resistant suede. This tannery is 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% Mexican leather upper and sock lining
  • 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 fitting true to size and is meant to be worn with and without socks

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.

See the factory.

Suedes and nubucks are aniline leathers that do not have a protective finish. This means they are very absorbent and susceptible to stubborn staining. However, most of our suedes are sustainably treated with a stain-resistant surface finish making them easier to clean.

Alternatively, our waterproof suedes have an internal membrane to prevent water from penetrating the leather, keeping the foot protected and dry. The surface of the suede has not been treated, so you should apply a normal suede treatment before getting wet.

If the suede gets wet, soak up the moisture as soon as possible with a clean towel and allow it to air dry, then brush with a soft bristle suede brush. Suede should be kept out of direct sunlight for long periods of time, as it is especially prone to fade. We advise against cleaning any cleaning products containing solvents which affects the leather's surface finishing.

To clean, gently brush off dirt with a soft bristle suede brush. Use a suede rubber eraser to gently scrub away scuffs and blemishes, then brush gently in the same direction in which the suede naturally rests. Apply a suede protector before wearing to keep shoes in good condition and a reviving product after using. We recommend cleaning periodically or as needed to keep your FRĒDAs looking brand new.

To waterproof and clean, we offer a suede care and water-proofing kit here!

    Super Comfortable

    I loved the fit and comfort of this shoe the first time I wore them. Ever since, each wearing has been equaling as rewarding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 stars
    As good as it gets

    I’m normally a 9.5 but had to exchange for the 9, fits perfectly! Slightly stiff but was able to wear them to the office on day one. They look so well made and just so so special. If you’re on the fence - do it! I waited a while to order and wish I’d done so sooner.

    Love them so much !

    I love this Loafer so much that I bought a second pair in a different color. They are so comfortable and cushy inside. I felt they fit me from the start and I was worried about them gapping and they did not gap at all.

    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.
