Drumroll, please….Freda Salvador’s latest styles have finally hit the online stratosphere, and we couldn’t be more enthralled with the results! Hot off the heels of the brand's recent FGI '13 Rising Star Award nomination, the new collection of over 15 fresh-out-the-factory kicks feature the designer duo’s first stab at strappy sandals — just in time for the warm months ahead.
