Espadrilles On Sale!

If you’re looking for a versatile summer shoe, it’s hard to go wrong with an espadrille style. They work with pants, shorts, skirts, and dresses, and have a classic, timeless appeal.

Espadrilles originated in Spain, and were usually a flat shoe with a jute sole and cloth upper. But “espadrille” has become a more general term that’s often applied to any footwear with a jute or jute-detailed sole. For this roundup, I’ve included several different styles.

  1. It’s a little off topic, but I wanted to share that I found some wonderful thin comfortable pants that I think I can garden in as well as hike in and also travel with. From Athleta. Called trekkie pants. I only saw them and olive and black. I really wanted to see them in a light khaki color. I was disappointed in that. But the fit and the fabric in the feel are fantastic. The legs gather at the bottom with a pull for the hiking. So let’s say you were in Paris and you wanted to go on a biking adventure, you could tighten the bottom of your pants so they don’t get tangled up in your bike. And then untangle them to walk around.

  2. I have espadrilles similar to the Clarks. I have been wearing them all spring on dry days. So comfortable, lightweight and airy. Rain is the enemy of espadrilles, so I chose my days carefully.

  3. Great post! Wonderful choices! Espadrilles are great, and I have many pairs. Mine, are all from,
    Toni Pons, made in Spain. Love the printed dress, shown on upper left. I am wondering where that is from.

  4. Funny, I’ve had that pair of perforated suede lace-ups in my basket for a few days, and just made the purchase. They are on sale at a good price, but they’re final sale, so I hope they fit! I have a couple of Cole Haans already, fortunately, so I think the size will be right for me. I admit this is not the first item I’ve bought during the pandemic thinking, “this will be great for when we can travel again!”

  5. Thank you for explaining what an espadrille style is. I’ve been confused until now. I’ve never bought a pair as I live in a damp climate and assumed they’d be destroyed if caught in the rain. I love pretty much all you’ve featured!

  6. I agree with your reader, Nancy, about the post. Love your features and I too love the dresses that were shown with the espadrilles. . Any chance of finding out where they are from? Thanks so much

  7. I like espadrilles because I’m finding wedge heels feel a good deal more solid & stable than ordinary heels as I get older. And I still like wearing heels! They’re gotten lower, certainly — no more clattering around in 3.5″ pumps except in my dreams (seriously: in my dreams I’m often wearing sky-high stilettos while shopping in Montreal & subterranean malls in Toronto for some reason only my sub-conscious understands). I’m not comfortable in completely flat shoes or boots — I always feel like I’m clopping along on flat feet when wearing them, which is odd, considering I spend most of my life barefoot — even my mocassins have a slight heel. I need a couple of pairs of sandals this summer & will have a look at the brands you’ve shown here (the sale price might make up for the insane exchange rate on the Canadian dollar these days).
