#BuroGetaway: 14 pairs of summery espadrilles we wish we packed along

What the 1400s and subsequent centuries once deemed peasant footwear has now gained traction as the summer shoe every style maven should own. Espadrilles are easily identifiable by their soles of rope but that aside, its styles and shapes have evolved greatly from the standard esparto rope soles, canvas upper and ankle lacing. The wedge version—which was designed by Yves Saint Laurent with the help of Spanish espadrille manufacturer Casteñer in the seventies—have become one of the most popular renditions of the espadrille. 



Year 2003 saw the dawn of the Chanel espadrilles that reignited a craze. The flats came with the house’s unmistakable interlocking Cs coupled with supple leather linings and an array of lovely fabrications; soon, they cemented a new classic. Now, the rustic footwear style is completely open to creative interpretation; from the embroidered McQueens to Miu Miu’s scarlet ballerina flatforms with grungy straps and ribbon laces, designers have taken free reign in their interpretation of the espadrille.
