There isn’t a summer shoe we love wearing more than espadrilles. Did you know that these lightweight, jute-soled shoes originally come from Spain, where they were first worn by the King of Aragons’ infratry men in the 13th century? Salvador Dali, Grace Kelly and Humphery Bogart rocked the sandals well before Yves Saint Laurent introduced the espadrille in the form of a high heeled wedge in the late sixties. And let’s not forget Sonny Crockett‘s all white versions in Miami Vice! Fast forward to 2015 and we’re seeing gladiator and flatform varieties – but really, nothing beats the simple, traditional espadrille.

They are the perfect summer shoes. The Aquazzura are my favorite 😀
I have a hard time picturing Humphrey Bogart wearing sandals for some reason lol. But I love espadrilles, especially the lace-up ones!

Nothing beats espadrilles in the summer!
What’s not to love about espadrilles? Loved the background on the style too!
ok now I definitely need a lace up edition
Funnily I’m not big on espadrilles… I have nothing against them but I wouldn’t choose them normally… Maybe only when I go on holiday 🙂
espadrilles definitely grew on me and i want more now lol definitely a lace one like the picture!
So happy espadrilles are back- so upset I just got rid of mine!
So many cute shoes to pick from… thanks for sharing 🙂
