From women’s espadrille sneakers and wedges to sandals and heels, Shoe-Inn has an entire selection of espadrilles from various designers across the world.
Believe us when we tell you espadrilles are more comfortable than flip-flops or any other summer shoe you can think of. What started in the mountains of Europe designed for peasants and urban workers, the footwear style became all the rage in the 1950s. Now, they are a staple piece for every summer closet. The best part is their construction. Espadrilles keep your feet fresh and cool by providing proper air ventilation while also protecting your feet — the perfect choice for hot and humid days outside.
When Espadrilles Are the Right Move
The real question is when are espadrilles not the right move? Espadrilles eventually became a trend appreciate by footwear designers across the world, and they became a far cry from peasant shoes. Different brands have taken on various interpretations using every element. You'll now find espadrilles with laces, vibrant colors, platform shoes, tassels, slip-ons, heels, ribbons, lace details, sandals and many more.
The shoe is comfortable, lightweight and chic. Choose from open or closed-toes and dozens of other details. As a versatile option, espadrilles are for casual summer wear, but you will be surprised at how much you can dress them up in different styles. Pair them with laid-back skinny jeans and a loose T or jazz up your summer dress.
The Detailed Manufacturing Process
Constructing espadrille platform sandals and other styles is more complex compared to regular sandals. The jute soles are the most defining aspect of the shoes. The natural white color of jute provides a stunning look, and they are braided and formed into the silhouette of the shoe. From there, the weaved part is heat pressed to create the final shape and stitched or glued onto the sole. Often made of recycled rubber, the soles are flexible and have eco-fashion properties.
One of the other central characteristics of an espadrille is the one-piece canvas upper that’s stitched to the footbed made of braided fibers, aka the jute sole. Crafted from different materials and silhouettes, the upper of an espadrille can go from one extreme to the next.
