I’m a shoe addict. Â I was going to say shoe lover but that’s dancing around the truth. Â I’ve amassed a shoe shelf display of them that’s constantly seeing new and old rotating in and out on a bi-weekly basis.
Having said all that, with all the temptations of new spring shoes, there is one style that I still think looks the best of them all; the classic espadrille. Â Of course now there are tons of variations: platformed, embellished, peep toe, leatherÂ you name it but to me, the best one is STILL the classic canvas wedge espadrille. Â They don’t break the bank and they work whether you’re on a two week holiday orÂ shoppingÂ in theÂ city. Â In London, I used to wear them every summer without fail and then one day, I got distracted by other shoes (don’t we all?) but I never stopped thinking about them.
They still beat everything out there and I think that boils down to: 1. Â They are comfortable. Â 2. Â They go with everything (classics usually do). Â 3. Â The style has been around since our parent’s generation so there’s the old school built in factor 4. Â They read ‘I don’t give a sh** what my Instagram feed or magazinesÂ tells me to wear because of point 3 Â 5. Â They make your feet look smallÂ and they elongate legs Â 6. Â Like the Goldilocks analogy, the wedge height is just right. Â
lover addict side of me wants to show you another round ofÂ the latest spring shoes, but for once trends be damned, I want to wear my humble espadrille again.
Question: Â Do you still wear them?
