If summer had an official shoe, it would have to be the espadrille. The natural jute, cork and rope accents lend the perfect easy, breezy vibe to practically any look. While most of us gravitate toward a style with a wedge and slight platform, one of this summer’s best (and most comfortable) trends is the flat espadrille. Incorporating everything you love about the espadrille wedge, the flat version makes it easy to slip on and off whether you’re running errands or running after your kids at the park.
