Who knew espadrilles could be so colorful, so whimsical? These are, though, and they owe much of their whimsy and charm to a criss-cross of laces across their canvas uppers, all in brown and yellow. At the ankle, there’s an adjustable buckle to ensure a perfect fit, so these espadrilles are sensible and pretty!

2 Marine Depths Wedges

The contrast of the faux blue suede against the jute-wrapped platforms of these espadrilles is eye-catching, making them the ideal choice for wearing this summer. Their t-strap and peep-toe styling is unique and airy, but I keep coming back to that color combination… I love it!

Wow, I love these shoes! These pretty espadrilles combine all of my favorite elements of style: the jute-covered heel, the wooden clog look, a pretty ankle strap, peep toes, and best of all, a leafy red botanical print on the silk and cotton uppers! I can’t think of anything in my spring or summer wardrobe I can’t wear these with… gorgeous!

Are these ankle booties, or espadrilles? Perhaps they’re both, taking the best design cues from each to create this pretty pair of shoes.

Featuring a raffia wedge and textured canvas uppers, these lace-up espadrilles are sure to add plenty of style to your spring-time ensembles, from linen Bermudas to floral-print tunics and leggings. The wedge is a walk-able 3½ inches with a ¾ inch platform.

7 Spectator Espadrilles
