Trend Report Espadrilles Feature Image.jpg

We’ve been bringing you information on Spring 2014 trends for months now, and there’s another one to add to the list: espadrilles. Designers have taken the lightweight and distinctive espadrille design and incorporated their own signature detailing to it, and the effects have been rippling out through the shoe market.

The more I browse online retailers, the more I’ve noticed these espadrilles in all variations. The flat version is great for casual weekend endeavors, whereas the wedge-heel version is dressier and can work with anything from distressed denim to a flared sundress. Check out some of our favorites across the spectrum below.

    Of course there are “rockstud” espadrilles. Of course they are ridiculously expensive.

      There is rockstud everything at this point, but I will admit, the rockstud espadrilles were my favorite in this roundup!

    • Katherine Callaghan

      I agree, they are so pretty, and they look really comfortable too!

    what is the point of espadrilles? Most of them are made to be worn a season only. The crochet capped toe is super ugly on all designs (and I cannot believe I am saying this but I like the Uggs)

    • Katherine Callaghan

      Haha! I was surprised at how cute the Ugg wedge espadrilles were too!
