Brand Story


The makers of Froddo shoes have been producing shoes since 1946.  They were established as a small business made up of a group of shoemakers. Through mutual assistance, updating their knowledge and hard work, they have become a company with over 600 employees – today a leading footwear manufacturer in Croatia. The company might have grown in size, but the spirit of initial enthusiasm and solidarity has remained the same. 


FRODDO shoes are made exclusively from natural aniline leather and anatomically designed to ensure the right amount of support and comfort. The shoe’s design was developed in consultation with orthopedic surgeons and paying close attention to the insole, midsole and outsole. Combining a modern design and a 77-year-old tradition, Froddo shoes are innovative, high quality, and functional, produced ecologically from natural materials, and are a healthy product supporting your child’s growing foot development.

Every Froddo shoe is produced in an environmentally friendly way without any harmful substances, heavy metals and compounds such as Chromium (VI). We produce shoes that care about the environment, as well as the health of children.
