Valentino: a dream on the catwalk, and now, a dream on our feet! This Monday morning, we’re dreaming of slipping our heel-pained feet into some rather delicious looking flats.

But they’re not just any old pair of flats, in fact, for all of you frightened ladies out there afraid of stepping into fashion-less flats, fear not! The new espadrilles for spring/summer 2012 from our favourite high-end designer, Valentino, have left us wanting to take comfortable strides in pretty flats all summer long!

What makes them so good, you ask? Well, apart from looking like a stunning Valentino gown just took the form of a shoe, the hand stitched espadrilles are made of a delicate lace-covered mesh, encased in a luxurious leather trim and adorned with crocheted detail at the round toe.

The perfect (and super-comfy) addition to your sunshine season wardrobe; the Valentino lace espadrilles, available in Vintage Nude, red or black, will add just the right amount of dressed down charm to a glam summer look, or look equally stylish paired with cropped jeans and a breezy shirt.

To get an idea of the unrivalled craftsmanship and utter love that goes into creating every single pair of lace espadrilles, check out the video below to see the Valentino artisans hard at work.
