Espadrilles are on trend this spring

Once again espadrilles are on trend for this spring of 2016.  You may know them as the rope sandal or “jute” sandal, they are a light weight and very comfortable sandal.

The soles of espadrilles may be flat, platform, or wedge shaped made of natural fibers uppers may be made from nearly any substance and may have open or closed toes, open or closed backs, and can be slip-on or tied to the ankle with laces.

Thousands of varieties of espadrilles can be found, from inexpensive bargain brands to high priced designer brands.

YSL is responsible for bringing the wedge style in the 1970’s and it seems that they have been around ever since.  He was desperately looking for a someone who could manufacture his vision when he came across Castañer at a Trade show and the rest is history.

This year we do see some bright colours with Toni Pons showing Corals and Greens.  Ateliers has the perfect styles to take you from work to play. David Tyler more for Funky.

Come on in today and walk out with a pair
or three
