No matter what the latest fashion trend is, espadrilles will always be iconic summer shoes. Therefore, designer espadrilles are worth the investment because they will last for years thanks to the materials’ quality and manufacturing techniques. Besides, they are comfy. So, in this post, you’ll find classic, trendy, and the most recognizable designer espadrille. We picked flats, slide sandals, wedges, and platforms from the iconic Spanish Castañer to Valentino and Chanel.
And a little bit of fashion history, just because. According to the My Theresa website, espadrilles are originally from the Basque country (which is part of Spain today) and they date back to the 13th century. At the time, the flat espadrilles shoes were made of needlegrass named “esparto”, hence the name espadrilles, canvas, and ankle ties. It was only in the 70s that Yves Saint Laurent brought a wedge espadrille to the runway and the rest is history.
