Flatforms may be taking the industry by storm as the unofficial underground shoe of the season, but if you ask us, espadrilles are summer’s bona fide hit shoe.
A footwear staple we’ll readily welcome back year after year, we love the practicality of the wear-everywhere espadrille, and though they’re cool and classic, this season’s styles are decidedly diverse.
Staying true to their signature woven raffia wedge, summer’s espadrilles are a vibrant, versatile mix of paintbox brights, touchable textures and varying heights that were made to go hand in hand with city shorts and easy-breezy dresses.
From sky-high wedges to towering platforms and fail-safe flats, take a look at the essential espadrilles that are guaranteed to get you through summer…
