Hello dear readers,
I’m sure your aware of a type of shoe that is taking its moment in the sun! I’m talking about ‘the espadrilles’. I’ve wore them, specially around the summer time, to go to the beach, to take a walk around the sea shore and so on. It’s been a long time since I owned one though, I prefer flip-flops, ballerinas or just open sandals. Now, it’s bloomed and the classic navy accessory is being used everywhere. Tom’s is a brand that comes to mind when I think of them. I confess, I never really heard of them until one of my student’s did a brand assignment some years ago, It was a very well researched paper and he really was into the helping a person in need, which is their moto.
Now celebrities everywhere wear them. What works well for them is the fact that they are unisex! Of course women can also wear the wedged ones with the ties in the front, but still, its pretty versatile. Espadrilles are a casual flat or high-heel fashion sandal that has its origins in the Pyrenees. They are made with canvas or cotton with a flexible sole made out of rope or rubber.
What do you think of this sandal? Do you wear them often??
Here is a selection of espadrilles! Are you getting a pair for the summer??
