Espadrilles have always been around, but they never really interested me much until the past few years, as their design has gotten a lot more interesting and varied. For instance, check out this navy blue wedge, which is so sleek and sophisticated that you could wear it with just about anything. .
I like the subtle metallic sheen here.
And I like the less-than-subtle metallic sheen here.
These add a nice amount of height while still looking pretty walkable.
Flatforms are not for everyone and they can be on the clunky side, but the fact that these are white keeps them light.
The frayed denim and patterned sole make these a slightly funky—but not too funky—choice.
I like the crisscross strap and burnt orange hue here.
You know that for the most part, I abstain from posting items by status-y designers here, but Saint Laurent’s espadrille version of their classic Tribute sandal is just outstanding. If I thought there was even a fighting chance I could walk in them, I might go for it.
These are on the low side, but don’t come off the least bit frumpy.
I’d wear these with knee-length cutoffs.
A pair that would be at home at the beach as well as the office.
This classic slingback comes in a few colors, but I like this greenish khaki because it’s cool and also versatile.
