Espadrilles for men and women are a summertime favorite
Espadrilles for men and women are flat and sometimes high heeled, casual shoes made from esparto rope, a wiry Mediterranean rope made from grass. The esparto rope evolved into the french espadrille term used to describe the fashionable shoe that first appeared 4000 years ago. Espadrilles can have a cotton, canvas, linen, leather, suede and every material imaginable upper part and they can be open or closed toed, have open or closed backs but the common denominator is the characteristic wired sole. Traditionally they had laces that would tie around the ankle, securing the shoe in place and were worn both by men and women but nowadays the styles have evolved to include laces, straps or exclude them all together. They were considered to be a peasant’s choice and were worn by the lower classes but nowadays, the espadrille is an absolute favorite for everyone. They became very popular in the US when they appeared on the silver screen worn by Lauren Bacall in the 1940’s and in the 70’s, Yves Saint Laurent brought them back into the spotlight. Today, espadrilles are a staple for any summer wardrobe and the designs, materials and styles are countless catering to male and female fashion needs.
