When I think of espadrilles it makes me think of boats. The canvas upper and rope sole are perfect for walking about on the decking. For some reason I always think of these shoes as being navy blue with white stitching, it must be the nautical association.
When I went to look I found that espadrilles come in a wide range of different styles and colours. They can be worn with shorts or a sun dress and because of the canvas upper will keep your feet cool. They are perfect for relaxing in the sun. They also can be squashed easily into a suitcase so are great for taking on holiday.
The first pair that caught my eye were these Little Marcel espadrilles.
These have a lovely cheerful rainbow stripe that would look perfect on a hot summers day. It also means they would easily match any outfit. I would wear these with khaki shorts and a bright sun vest, perfect for sightseeing.
I also found a pair that was more like traditional sandals, if you wanted something a bit more dressy for the evening. These Pare Gabia Toulque look comfortable but the winding straps add a bit of interest.
These are perfect for a relaxing dinner on the balcony.
My final choice was these Coca-Cola Belina espadrilles.
I love the retro look and feel. They are really different but the colours add a light summery feel to the shoe. I think I will probably choose the Little Marcel as I love the rainbow stripes, but it is a difficult choice. Which would you pick?
