3 summertime espadrilles for every budget

By Maybelle Morgan, July 8, 2017

When the sun’s giving it all it’s got, sneakers are transformed into humid incubators while sliders simply rub you up the wrong way — so, it’s all about espadrilles. Light, comfy and with a South-of-France rustic feel, it’s truly summer footwear in all its glory. Here are three pairs for whatever budget you’re rocking right now...

Dress for the scenery you want, right? So, naturally, we’re very into these black canvas slip-ons, featuring a very seasonal pair of embroidered palm trees and a preppy woven sole. Plus, you can’t argue with the fact that they’ll only cost you just under 20 bucks. Too good.

Coconut. Coco. Nut. We are obsessed with these adorable espadrilles in monochrome typography. Instructions? Wear with high-waist shorts and an off-the-shoulder crop top — also, keep a piña colada close by.

What did the crab espadrille say to the lobster one? Nada, obviously, but they make for an absolutely dreamy pair of vacay slip-ons. Yep, nothing says seaside strolling like embroidered crustaceans on sand-colored shoes. They may require you to dig deeper into the ol’ purse, but take into account the chunky platform shape. We dig it.
