As far as summer shoes go, they don’t come much more classic than timeless espadrilles. From slip-ons to wedges, these raffia wonders are our new obsession.
A good sandal is stylish but comfortable, and one you can wear to ANY summer occasion your diary can throw at you.
That’s a lot of boxes to tick. Luckily for you we’ve found the style that does just that.
The espadrille is not only the most long-wearing sandal option you can invest in, but it’s also one of the chicest. Practically uniform in the French Riviera, these shoes aren’t a summer fling – in fact, we guarantee you’ll wear (and love) them for years to come.
A shoedrobe staple amongst influencers and celebrities alike (here’s looking at you, Millie Mackintosh and Georgia Toffolo), the styling potential involving these wedges is endless. Wear yours with denim cut-offs and an off-the-shoulder top in warmer climes then, for weekend picnics in the park, pair with a chic white midi dress and basket bag.
Naturally, you’ll find lots of expensive options to choose from but we think the best espadrilles on the block can be found on the humble high street. Take your pick from our edit below, and get ready to reach peak summer style.
