Stylish Espadrilles Online based on a Centuries-Old Design
Espadrilles were originally made using a type of Mediterranean grass known as esparto, also often used when making rope. Espadrilles still feature rope in their construction and in some designs, although jute is more commonly used today. The soles of espadrilles are still constructed using rope braids. A sturdy outer sole is added to increase durability.
Traditionally, espadrilles were a slip-on enclosed shoe and the uppers were constructed of canvas.
Although sometimes still made using canvas uppers, women's espadrilles are now also made of other materials such as leather. Still retaining the rope sole, and embellished with rope edges, modern espadrilles have evolved to include almost every footwear type imaginable.
A Selection of Espadrilles to Suit Your Tastes and the Occasion
Variations of espadrilles include slip-ons and sandals, with or without back straps and in both flats and heels. There are enclosed flats, usually with leather or the more traditional canvas uppers. Leather uppers with cut-outs are comfortable and cool, in more ways than one. Women's espadrilles come in a range of bright and cheerful primary colours such as blue, yellow and red.
Espadrilles wedges are a great dress-up shoe for summer. Espadrille wedges offer similar benefits to heels. The structure of wedges offers improved stability and foot comfort to that of traditional heels, plus added height. Browse the range to find the ultimate summer wedges.
