Why buy Froddo?
No child is the same, just as no foot is the same
The Froddo brand of shoes, boots and slippers is the flagship product range manufactured by the Ivančica company in Croatia. Since 1946, the company has grown from a small group of shoemakers making miners’ footwear to a leading footwear manufacturer with over 1,000 employees making more than 5,000 pairs of shoes every day.
The Froddo Children’s Shoe Brand
Froddo was born in 1999 after a strategic decision and the company’s integration with the manufacturing facility for making ladies footwear. The name Froddo was inspired by the character in The Lord of the Rings.
