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. FYI, for those who say S.F. is out of sync with the rest of the fashion big shots, note that the new steppers include on-the-rise Birkenstock-like iterations — oh, you know, just like the luxe ones recently spotted on runways for spring.

In fact, we’ve got the exclusive snaps of the pretty pairs right here! Ready to sneak a peek at these cool soles hitting stores oh-so-soon? Click through after the jump and try not to gasp too loudly on every slide. Wait...we might have trouble taking our own advice.
