18 Reasons to Get Roped Into Some New Espadrilles

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Seems like every where you turn, there's a new espadrille to be had. What was once a simple peasant shoe has been reimagined in every way possible: They get a glam makeover in the form of Brian Atwood’s jewel-toned suede wedge, go preppy with bright stripes from Stuart Weitzman, and turn out tribal-chic courtesy of Belle by Sigerson Morrison. And for those in need of a light shoe you can really do summery things in, like ride a bike, Industry of All Nations offers a sporty canvas sneaker-espadrille (sneak-adrille?) hybrid that the peasant inventors of the shoe probably wish they thought of themselves. Check out 17 of our favorites in the gallery above.—Julie Chen
