The best Espadrilles for Summer
May 22, 2019
This French style shoe was first worn in the middles ages, found in the mediterranean, and was once considered peasant footwear. Back then the upper part of the shoe was only made of Canvas, as it was cheap, with laces to keep the shoes attached to your foot. And while most of the styles are still made with a canvas upper, designers are now experimenting with fabrics like leather, suede, mesh and embellishments to give this traditionally casual shoe a more modern and elegant look.
There are Espadrilles for every occasion and anyones esthetic. For example the wedge style gives the appearance of a longer leg without having to deal with the pain of a stiletto heel, and is sure to take you from day to night. The popular flat closed-toe styles are perfect for a day of sailing (as they are super similar to boat shoes) or just walking and exploring the city. This french shoe symbolizes the summertime aesthetic: It’s comfy, light weight, travels well and so versatile! Throw a pair of espadrilles on with your favorite summer dress for a romantic date night or pair it with denim shorts and a T-shirt for a more casual look.
Slip into flats or tie on a pair of wedged espadrilles for a picnic in the park or a day at the beach and give your casual footwear an upgrade. Scroll below for a round up of the chicest and most comfortable espadrilles!
