Herb Spazzolato
Quantity:
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.

    Style + Craftsmanship + Comfort

    These traditional loafers are beautifully made and the deep espresso brown is absolute perfection. They are an investment that will never go out of style.

    ELBA PENNY LOAFER 7.5 / Cuoio Spazzolato
    Rated 5 out of 5 stars
    Best classic loafer

    Love these so much! It took a few wears to get them broken in but they’re very comfy now. I get them them a 1/2 size smaller than normal and they fit perfect. I love the color (tan) and now want them in the off white. Well done FS!

    Love them!

    Beautiful loafers! Very comfortable, incredibly stylish. A step up from the classic rather dated loafer.

    ELBA PENNY LOAFER 8 / Espresso Spazzolato
    Rated 5 out of 5 stars
    5 Stars

    Beautifully made. Craftsmanship and material makes the loafers look more expensive. They’re more comfortable than my Saint Laurent loafers. The espresso is the perfect brown. Planning to get another pair in a different color soon.

    ELBA PENNY LOAFER 8 / Sand Embossed Croc
    Rated 5 out of 5 stars
    Gorgeous! Runs big

    I'm a true US 8.5/EU 9 so thought I'd be a size 8.5 in this loafer. The customer service team was so helpful and suggested I take an 8 after I shared the length measurement of my feet. And, they were right! These loafers are gorgeous - the perfect cream color which goes with everything & they are very comfortable out of the box. Highly recommend.
