If you were to take a look inside your favorite blogger’s closet, I guarantee you’d find a pair of covetable espadrilles. The summery shoe trend is the perfect solution for a casual, comfortable and stylish look. Plus, since almost every blogger owns a pair, there is endless outfit inspiration for you to try the trend yourself! It’s not difficult to understand why, they are unbelievably comfortable, surprisingly stylish and look great with jeans, pants, skirts and dresses.
Espadrilles or ”alpargatas” are normally casual, flat, but sometimes high-heeled shoes originated in the Pyrenees. They usually have a canvas or cotton fabric upper and a flexible sole made of jute rope. The jute rope sole is the defining characteristic of an espadrille.
Espadrilles have been made in Pyrennean Catalonia (Spain – France) and the Occitania region since the 14th century at least, and there are shops in the Basque country (Spain) still in existence that have been making espadrilles for over a century. The oldest, most primitive form of espadrilles dates as far back as 4000 years ago. Traditional espadrilles are worn by both men and women.
