Frēda Salvador was founded by best friends Cristina Palomo Nelson and Megan Papay. With over 25 years of technical footwear and accessory design and 70+ years of footwear lineage, they design every collection of elevated, timeless and slightly unconventional styles that ease into your everyday.
Our products empower non-stop women by offering pound-the-pavement utility. All products are designed in the US but help employ women overseas make income, pay the bills, and make money to get out of poverty. All of the factories are inspected.
WE BELIEVE THAT THE QUALITY AND SUSTAINABILITY OF HANDMADE PRODUCTS IS UNPARALLELED.
We work with artisans who believe in keeping the art and integrity of shoemaking alive and they work in factories as inspiring as the shoes they are making. Our shoes are made to be worn and loved for generations to come. Find other options for women owned footwear companies.
