I just received them today. I am thrilled with them they are of exceptional quality and look really pretty on the feet too.

One of the hottest fashion trends this season are espadrilles. Espadrilles, originally from Spain, are defined by the rope (or faux rope) sole. From sexy ankle straps to comfortable, casual wedges, they are everywhere and so versatile they can be worn with just about anything. has seen a huge increase in demand for espadrilles this season. They are proving to be a very popular item as the weather gets warmer. Everyone will be sporting a pair of espadrilles this season, so get them while you can. Need to know what to wear them with? offers suggestions below:

Espadrilles come in a variety of styles, for traditional espadrilles with a closed, rounded toe, closed back and ankle ties, try the Franco Sarto Question or the Tommy Hilfiger Tia. The Question has a silk upper and comes in five different colors, has a 3 ½ inch heel and a lightly padded footbed. The Tia has a canvas upper with a 3 inch traditional jute wedge heel. It comes in both solid and patterns. These shoes are Bohemian-chic and look great with long flowing skirts.

If you’re looking for an open-toed espadrille with an ankle strap instead of ankle ties, try the Clarks England Twill or the Carlos by Carlos Santana Majestic. The Twill features full grain leather uppers, a shock absorbing midsole wrapped in jute, and a 2 ½ inch platform wedge heel. Because the Twill is a more casual espadrille, it pairs well with cropped pants or a spring skirt. The uber trendy Majestic comes in metallic leather colors and has a cushioned footbed on a 4 inch wedge heel. The sculpted high wedge on the Majestic is great for dressing up jeans or a skirt.

Maybe 3” plus heels are too much for you and you don’t really want an ankle strap or tie. Try the Grasshoppers Napa or the Born Amiga. The Napa is a peep-toed slip on shoe with a 1 ½ inch heel. The upper features paisley or solid-colored canvas that cross-crosses over the vamp and is held in place by a decorative button. The Amiga is a slip on leather espadrille with an “I” strap over the arch and a 2 ¾ inch hand-wrapped wedge heel. They work with both pants and skirts and have a more casual feel.

Don’t just take our word on it though. Here is what some customers are saying about espadrilles:

  •     “I just received them today. I am thrilled with them they are of exceptional quality and look really pretty on the feet too.” – Barbara, TX about the Franco Sarto Question. She will be wearing these shoes when she goes on vacation.
  •     “I bought these in two colors, the natural print and the navy print. Took the natural on vacation with me and found they went with almost everything, skirts, pants, Capri’s in brown, green and denim. The heel height is only two inches after you net out the platform so they make very comfy walking shoes, perfect height for a comfortable arch and soft, giving footbed. Highly recommend!” – Cesca, CA about the Tommy Hilfiger Tia. She wears them socially, but will also be wearing them to work.
  •     “Just what I wanted -- a platform sandal, not too high a heel, espadrille-type details, and lots of comfort. They're perfect.” – Sally, CA about the Clarks England Twill. She wears them in both casual and dress up situations.

When I wear these shoes, the fit is so great that I forget I have them on, which is absolutely marvelous. I teach and I stand on my feet practically all day. This shoe is comfortable and just what I need.” – Lucy, MD about the Grasshoppers Napa. She wears these shoes with pants and in casual dress situations.
