Summer shoes

I'm really loving espadrilles for this summer. They're comfy and tomboyish and they make your legs look pretty in shorts. Plus, my friend Kendra always wears them, and she's my style guide in every way. She has this pair, but they come in tons of fun colors...
You can find them here and here.

What do you think? Would you wear them? (I just ordered these!)

P.S. My favorite wedges and sneakers.

i think these look super comfy but I'm still partial to keds for casual shoes.

Molly said...

These look awesome! And so comfy. I've got one pair of TOMS, but I think these would be awesome to add to the collection!

I love all of these, but those blue patterned shoes especially! So laid back and perfect for summer.

Becca Gilgan said...

I just picked up a colourful pair from Gap that I've been eyeing for the past little while and they look SO cute on! A playful addition to a simple outfit, like the striped sleeveless dress I bought along with them...

I have actually been really on the fence about this style but am loving all the ones you posted. Particularly the ones you ordered, so cute! I think I have seen people style them really poorly but what you have displayed has changed my tune! Great Summer shoes!

stephanie said...

They're originally from Spain. So comfy!

cleartheway said...

I like the ones you ordered. I haven't owned a pair like these before, but they would totally fit in with my wardrobe.

Love Soludos - the cherry red ones are so cute, but I've got my eye on these: http://www.soludos.com/women/chevy-chevs-original?color=Aqua#.Ubdl77u6dbk

I'm a TOMS girl at heart - more affordable, and such a great cause. They have really (and comfy!) wedges, too: http://www.toms.com/womens/shoes/wedges/c?view=all

Tibs said...

Oh yes, those are the ultimate summer shoes! I just bought a pair at Louboutin in Paris last week...

Jo Sen said...

It's the ultimate French summer shoes. Everyone wears them during the warm days... Even better than flipflops on hot summer days and much more stylish! There's always a time when you realize that you're so underdressed in summer clothes and espadrilles can save the day..!
Though in France, we just go and buy them at the supermarket at barely 5€... I cannot for my life buy espadrilles above 15€!! French tradition!

Inari said...

I used to have a pair of these with a coral paisley pattern. They were so cute and comfy.

Holly Hardy said...

I love moccasins but I always feel like people might think I'm wearing slippers. Maybe a pair of espadrilles is the answer!

Sarah Fiorillo said...

I've been looking for a cute, casual pair of slip-ons for the summer. These are perfect!!

Inspiration partout said...

Beautiful!!Cute pairs!

McKenzie said...

They are perfect! They remind me of walking around Venice for some reason (not that I have haha)! They look extremely versatile, and I love the bright red!

Love them. They also wear them in Catalonia, Spain, where my mother is from. I have a pair and paid much less than Soludos is selling them for, but I have to admit I love all their patterns.

theoxfordcomma said...

Not revealing the brand name in your post is a bit of a cheap ploy to get people to click your sponsored links, really.

Rachel Elizabeth said...

Thanks for the links :) However, just so you know, your first link (out of the two at the end) actually goes to Tom's shoes at Nordstrom.

Scout and Rice said...

Love them! I've been wearing Toms a bit lately, which look very similar, but these are a nice summery-looking option.

Lydia DeWolf said...

I love these, they make your feet look smaller! I have striped ones.

I just bought a pair of Toms. They are so comfortable!

Bethany [at] Powell Brower Home said...

i love espadrilles - everything about them! i have about 10 pair (they wear out SO quickly) and i continue to hoard more. just wish they were sturdier, although I guess one of the perks of wearing them is how comfy they are.

Anna said...

I used to absolutely hate these shoes. It was really bad. But now I am starting to like the style more and more especially since I buy 99% flats to make my life easier. With a casual outfit or even something a little more chic I'd love a pair!

Erin said...

Hella cute! Wish I had the legs to make them look their best. I have perfectly nice legs (as my grandfather would say, they reach the ground!), but they benefit enormously from a heel.

Poppy B. said...

I'm such a fan of the original Toms -- I love that they last a long time and are great in the heat. But I hadn't seen these styles, and I like them very much. Thanks for sharing!

Soledos are made in China... come on!.. if you want an authentic traditional product/look, they are cheap to make and should be made in Europe, where they are traditionally made and where people receive descent wages.

monica mulhern said...

I love Toms and they help kids...might want to give them a go, super comfy and cute

This is Belgium said...

have always had espadrilles, I wear them in winter as bedroom slippers
same story here, never pay more than 5 eu for espadrilles
greetings from brussels,

marisa125 said...

Curious if these are comfortable for walking around? I mean, I completely agree that they're cute -- but is there any flexibility in that type of sole? I have a lot of cute but uncomfortable shoes that have only been worn once or twice in my closet. :(

I have been loving a pair of metallic gold driving moccasins I bought in the spring from the GAP (no longer available, sorry) -- nice tread and (so far) no annoying bits to cause blisters.

thejunkdrunk said...

I have a pair from Soludos from JCrew last summer. They're FANTASTIC and comfortable for grass walking, but I think they're a little too thin for me when I wear them on the hard NYC sidewalks. I love that they don't cause blisters though.

Michelle Panting said...

I love the pattern on the ones you chose. I think when I do try a pair like these though, I'll go for Tom's, just because I know they're ethically made.

I just picked up a new pair for this summer too. Pare Gabia, the original French espadrilles from the Basque country. Unrivaled!

I still miss my old Jacques Cohen espadrilles...

I have the top red, I love them!!!

Pamela said...

Thanks for pointing that out. I'm definitely not going to get a pair now. (They are cute though)

Jane Gallagher said...

So timely, I'm visiting NYC this week and today I chose the pair in the top picture as my walking around the city shoes and they actually handled really well and were really comfy. I love them and I wash them when they get dirty, my sister just sent me a striped pair that didn't fit her, hooray!

LRB said...

I've been wearing espadrilles since I was a kid. The ultimate classic summer shoe.

lainie said...

The Ikat ones are totally the best Joanna! This post made me regret not buying the authentic ones in Greece. I'm going to Scout these while I mill them over (and added bonus - maybe they'll go on sale!).

Mani said...

These are all so pretty! I couldn't really say since I've never owned a pair of espadrilles, but they're definitely on my list of things to try

nasualua said...

It's funny how we Spaniards consider those shoes as our "rural" shoes, not glamourous at all, just comfy :) My grandpa used to wear them all the time!

Gina said...

Here in Spain espadrilles are very typical but as nasualua says, we love them because of their comfyness not their glamour ha ha! I don't even know how many pairs of them I've owned in 21 years of life... right now I have... five pairs!! (two are wedged)

Nomadic D. said...

Since they are indeed so ubiquitous in Spain it's hard for me to even think of them as anything other than practical slippers you can wear in the streets, if that makes any sense. I do, however, love a good wedge espadrille. I picked these up at the beginning of the summer and am loving them:

They're harder to find in the states at non-exorbitant prices, I still wonder if I should start importing them...

May I ask.. Does anyone know where the top photo is from? I love the pink shirt!

I like the recommendation, but why aren't you in compliance with the FTC Guidelines regarding disclosure?

I’m an affiliate marketer with links to an online retailer on my website. When people click on those links and buy something from the retailer, I earn a commission. What do I have to disclose? Where should the disclosure be?

Let’s assume that you’re endorsing a product or service on your site and you have links to a company that pays you commissions on sales. If you disclose the relationship clearly and conspicuously on your site, readers can decide how much weight to give your endorsement. In some instances, where the link is embedded in the product review, a single disclosure may be adequate. When the product review has a clear and conspicuous disclosure of your relationship – and the reader can see both the product review and the link at the same time – readers have the information they need. If the product review and the link are separated, the reader may lose the connection.

As for where to place a disclosure, the guiding principle is that it has to be clear and conspicuous. Putting disclosures in obscure places – for example, buried on an ABOUT US or GENERAL INFO page, behind a poorly labeled hyperlink or in a terms of service agreement – isn’t good enough

Victorias's Secret has some beautiful lace ones and I recently picked up a pair of Frye leather flats that are SO comfy. Can't wait for summer!

JulYEAH said...

I love them! I have been on the hunt for a pair to wear for my honeymoon. For those who may not be able to shell out 50 something bucks for a pair of shoes you just want to slap on and go to the beach, Old Navy sells similar ones for about half the price :) http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/category.do?cid=55147#style=55148

sweet harvest moon said...

They are my favorite summer footwear!

zoë said...

I went through a Spain obsession and visited the country 3 times in 3 years. I bought a pair every visit and they are my most cherished souvenirs.

Ellen said...

I don't love espadrilles because the minute they get wet, they get water logged, heavy, and seep through to the sole of your foot! After that, they're pretty much ruined. Too bad because some of them are cute.

Lost in Provence said...

I thought the same thing, Elise! I live in Provence where folks still sew them by hand. Do I love the ikat pattern? Yes. Would I buy them? NO WAY.

I think people are going to like these new shoes. I like them. I had a lot of success with the one last year, but this year's shoe is going to be a little different .

Thanks

Canvas shoes can be pretty comfortable to wear around. Especially for casual attire and semi formal dress up needs of the masses. Other trends relating to casual shoes and outfits for 2013 include the pastel colors and flouncy dresses.

Suka said...

These are called "Alparcatas" in Portuguese and cost around 8 euros! And they are handmade!

I'm from Portugal and I've wear them all my life in the summer!

They're great!

Suka said...

Sorry: Alpargatas! with a G :)
