Summer, Sun and Espadrilles: More holiday feeling I can’t!
Finally they are back! The comfy Espadrilles are already our summer favorites. Where to buy the most beautiful slippers there, what distinguishes an original Espadrilles from the rest and how best to combine the shoe.
The Trendschuh of the summer is finished linen fabric, raffia sole and the obligatory rubber band to hold together:. The Spanish espadrille (pronounced Espadrij, named after the attached sole) almost each one of us has ever in a Majorcan Beach Bude geshoppt. The slippers were then just as long as our holiday flirt for a few euros. After about two weeks duration slippers, fabric and sole adopted each other. Water and sand could quickly ruin the Espadrilles. And so it was no longer in the small holiday liaison.
And yet we love the summer slippers: the fine without closure canvas is attached often only with a coarse seam to the bottom sits very comfortably – protects us from nasty blisters – offers but does not stop. Today, the treads is trend again. Not only as pure Urlaubsschuh, but refurbished, improved, adapted to the local weather conditions and ready for all occasions. With wedge heel, classic or as a sandal, leather, silk, calf hair, lace or Brocade – whether Espadrilles today in all variants, colours and shapes. Costs for the ballet slippers? Approx. 15 euros for reasonably stable standard copies. We can spend up to 800 euros for Couture Espadrilles from Chanel, Jimmy Choo, Dolce & Gabbana or Louboutin. Justified? Nope, but when such designer artwork anyway never question…
But what is so special about the holiday setbacks of the past? They give us a touch of holiday feeling in the city, a little Mediterranean feeling in the Office, they fit perfectly to the sporty-casual summer look, as well as to the sweet floral dress, and they are one thing above all: incredibly comfortable!
Knowledge for fabric shoe wearers: caution, goofed!
It is not “Espandrillos”, but “Espadrilles” – translated: “Steppes”, presumably the original material of the soles of Espadrilles. The airy runners wore once Mallorca’s agricultural workers. They of Sophia Loren and Grace Kelly made socially acceptable in the South. It was in the 50s of the last century, since the 80’s they belong also to the summer. And experience their comeback trend by 2015.
Care tip for Espadrilles
Attention, Espadrilles are nice-weather shoes! Because the most sole are not rain. Also models with rubberized soles survive no rain.
