The espadrille is the shoe of the season

2016-11-06 06:00

This season sees a major espadrille revival, with leading fashion houses like Chanel creating their own, and everything from wedge to gladiator to platform versions to choose from.

Famous for their characteristic jute rope sole, espadrilles were first made in the Pyrenees area bordering Spain and France as far back as the 14th century. Worn by both men and women, espadrilles still have their famous sole, but the style continues to evolve with trends. With devoted fans like Alessandra Ambrosio, Cipriana Quann and Jeanne Damas, you best know it’s the look you need this season.

Here are our top picks:


Add a little height with an ultra comfy wedge espadrille.



Cut out detailing makes these flat slip-ons the ultimate weekend shoe.



For that little bit of extra edge.
