Originating from 14th century Catalan, Spain, espadrilles were at one time deemed “peasant shoes” for their simple, inexpensive construction. Traditional styles feature a canvas upper portion and rope sole. In modern times, espadrilles have become a fashionable, trendy shoe-choice and an eternal summer favorite. Lightweight, comfortable and easy-to-wear, every girl needs a good pair in her wardrobe. Lucky for you, I’ve scoured the shops and found the hottest espadrilles available this season.
