If you’re tired of your flip-flop and sandal rotation, let us introduce you to another style to throw in the mix: espadrilles. Initially designed for Yves St. Laurent and rocked by iconic Hollywood actresses and French influencers alike, it’s safe to say that fashion culture has embraced espadrilles with open arms (and shoe racks).

And it’s no wonder why. Espadrilles are a simple shoe that prioritizes comfort and ease. Though espadrilles originated in Spain centuries ago, there are countless modern iterations of the warm-weather shoe loved by women across the world today. They come in a variety of styles (wedges, flats, and sandals) that complement everyday silhouettes like dresses and blouses, and many are designed with practical details like cushioned footbeds and adjustable straps that make them a perfect pair of shoes for a number of occasions. 

Lucky for you (and us), there’s no shortage of fresh and modern renditions of the espadrille, from smoking slippers and flats to wedges and sandals. So whether you prefer a classic, closed-toe wedge or something a little more trendy, we’re confident that there’s a style for you in our roundup of the best women’s espadrilles ahead.

Best Suede Espadrilles

NOTEWORTHY DETAILS
The Boden Cassie Espadrille Wedges are three inches high, combining height and walkability. The handmade wedge is low enough for comfortable all-day wear, yet still provides a nice lift when paired with dresses or jeans. Additionally, they are available in a variety of colors and prints.

PROMISING REVIEW
"I've been looking for a pair of comfortable espadrille wedges for a while. These are perfect -- not too high, not too narrow (the fabric is soft and doesn't leave blisters on the sides of my feet), and they seem very well made. I'm pretty much always a 7.5 and the 38 was true to size. Perfect."

Best Affordable Espadrilles

NOTEWORTHY DETAILS
These espadrille-style platform sandals have a cushioned footbed for extra comfort. They're designed with a single strap across the foot and a buckled strap at the ankle, adding functionality and a touch of femininity to your summer looks. 

PROMISING REVIEW
"These sandals have an open toe space that will especially benefit those who prefer wider sizing. According to one reviewer, "these are the first heeled espadrilles I've found that aren't adjustable at the toe, but they still fit. THANK YOU, Old Navy. I ordered originally in black then had to get the other two colors because they're too rare to pass up. Please make more with this wider sizing? Fun ones? We never get fun shoes. It would make my year."
