Espadrilles – originally a simple form of footwear dating back to medieval Catalonia and the Basque Country – are the quintessential summer shoe. Brought into vogue by artists such as Salvador Dalí and Pablo Picasso in the mid 20th century, they remain the perfect slip-on for both the home and the beach. Luxury brands have put their stamp on the simple classic – there’s Gucci’s hybrid trainer or Loewe’s lace-up boots, while Hermès has crafted a beautiful leather sandal with the style’s signature jute sole. Here are our top picks of the season.
