This is the most exciting thing to happen to San Francisco shoe shopping all year. OK the year may be be young, but the local women behind Freda Salvador kicking off 2013 with a storefront is thrilling news indeed. The shoe line launched last year by Megan Papay and Cristina Palomo was enthusiastically received, starting with a blow-out launch party at La Boutique (where you can also buy the shoes) and wrapping up 2012 with their merchandise available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Anthropologie and Shopbop.
The new shop will open in February on Union Street, and it will be a combination design studio, coffee lounge and of course a place to peruse and purchase Freda Salvador shoes and boots. Sounds like a place where we could while away many, many hours.
