A Quick Summer Espadrille Rundown

Espadrille is a great summer favorite. The traditional Spanish rope sole slipper is down to earth informal, pretty, and flattering. Authentic espadrilles can only be found in Spain, where people have spent centuries, literally, sewing them for themselves and their neighbors.
