If there is there a more summery show than the espadrille, I have yet to identify it: there is just something about that rope sole that feels perfect for this time of year. I found several good options, including this great pair of wedges in a nicely neutral hue.
I love how bright and happy this one is, and it rings in under $100.
This easy flatform slide brings a nice amount of height to the party.
And speaking of easy, these smoking slippers look so comfortable and effortless.
OK, this is slightly crazy, but I kind of love the combination of colors—so fun.
This wedge comes in several good colors, but I like this faded-out blue best.
As some of you might recall, I dislike most brown shoes, but these Vince flip flops look pretty ideal. I also like that they’ve got a bit of a platform, as walking in New York in the summer in regular flip flops can be pretty gross.
This suede pair is nicely polished.
A floral sport sandal is a lot of statement, and I’m not certain I could pull them off, but something about them speaks to me. Go figure. BTW, if you’re enchanted by the notion of a floral espadrille, you might want to check out these too.
This pair is rather vertiginous, true, but it also looks rather fancy and designer when in fact it can be yours for under $100.
This red and white pair is so excellently cheery and graphic. It also comes in blue and white, for a slightly subtler look.
These low wedges aren’t left in just a ton of sizes, but they look so walkable that I had to include them.
I dig the big buckle on this pair, and the crisscross straps.
These feel like something I would have worn in 1979, and I mean that in a good way.
And finally: a pretty classic pair from Spanish brand Castaner.
