The perfect alternative to sandals, espadrilles are bound to be your new go-to summer shoe! We’re currently obsessing over these eight pairs, from the glittery metallic ones by Sperry to the one-of-a-kind calf hair pair by UGG Australia. The Spanish-born shoe first became popular in the USA in the 1940s when it was worn by film legends like Grace Kelly and Humphrey Bogart.
But its resurgence in popularity happened within the past few years, inciting the creation of a slew of different styles. Our favorites typically have a bright, summery palette, traditional jute-braided soles, and a whole lot of potential for taking our feet new and exciting places! Summer, we’re ready for you.
