If you aren’t familiar with this cutting edge, artisan shoe brand, here’s the 411. Freda Salvador is a Bay Area treasure named after artist, Frida Kahlo. Founders Megan Papay and Cristina Palomo-Nelson both have backgrounds in fashion styling and design. But Cristina was literally born into the shoe biz—her first job was working at her grandfather’s shoe factory in Central America. Today, the FS line is produced by a family factory in Spain, and you can see the detailed craftsmanship and love that go into each piece.
Freda’s Star Jodhpur is our “Shoes for Tues” pick of the week. It’s a classic ankle boot with a 1.25” stacked heel. The best thing about this handmade boot is its versatility. See the metallic fringe accent? That’s actually a removable bracelet! Yep, so you can switch up the style of the boot depending on your mood or outfit.
This beautiful boot is one of their most popular designs and it’s easy to see why. We’re in love with its boho desert vibe, so perfect for next year’s festival season. In the meantime, wear it to work sans embellishment. Then dance the night away with all the bells and whistles attached.
Love the vibe but prefer black leather to sandy suede? Check out this sister style.
