Here's your best espadrilles for this summer season

Ideal for vacation mode or those hot city days that swim is not an option although it should, espadrilles are an all-time classic accessory with a lighthearted attitude. These sandals made of canvas, with soles of varying heights decorated with rope were first made over 600 years ago in Catalonia, but the name itself is French.

“The French name for the sandal comes from the Catalan word, espardenya, which referred to a tough grass used for weaving the ropes that form the bottom of the shoes. Today’s espadrilles may no longer use espardenya, and rope styling on the bottom may be glued to wooden, plastic, or rubber soles” reports WiseGeek of the footwear which travelled a long way from those early days, when they were peasant made and worn by peasants.

Today espadrilles are popular summer sandals and they perfect for the casual summer fashion the days ahead demand. With designers bringing a fashion update this season espadrilles are classic beach footwear you must embrace.
