Summer can be a tricky time for shoes. Warm days require breathable shoes that can withstand spontaneous long walks, yet can be worn with everything from your favourite ripped up denim shorts to breezy summer dresses. The answer to this conundrum is the espadrille!
Espadrilles are a great, light, summery alternative to basic flats. With a sole generally made of rubber or rope, espadrilles come in both wedge, chunky heels and flat forms and provide a slightly bohemian, chic look that can be dressed up or down. This summer espadrilles have gotten a bit of a makeover, frequently blending with other summer favourites like the oxford, the mule or the lace up flat. Curious?
