Born in Spain and loved by Chelsea House, the women's espadrilles need no introduction, already they’re essential for our summer shoe-drobes. Not only are they perfect for holidays, but it can be worn to the office too thanks to the neutral hue and structured shape. See? Easy.

Look down at our feet during the hotter months and you'll probably catch us wearing this bold and bright pair. What's not to love?

Let's take things a little higher with that heel, shall we? You know how we love wedges. So, espadrille wedges are the perfect marriage of summer bombshell style with a walkable heel. No more pigeon-stepping across the lawn at outdoor weddings. This is shoe love.
