Espadrilles, the humble Spanish rope-soled shoe, have been creeping their way into fashion’s upper echelon for a few years now. Luxury brands like Chanel have ignited huge fervor among fashion’s elite bloggers the last year or so for their premium versions of the canvas and leather espadrilles. Now everybody else is jumping on the shoe wagon, from brands like Loeffler Randall and Tory Burch to Vince and Vince Camuto.
We all win: beyond comfortable, espadrilles today have been given the modern treatment, with the addition of sleek leather and statement studs, and in a variety of prints and patterns.
