What’s on the designer espadrilles edit

I have so many of these styles favorited and on my wishlist. Sometimes if I can’t decide it’ll come down to what goes on sale first or which stores are in Europe than I can do duty free shopping in. The best designer espadrilles that made this shortlist are either best sellers or the ones seen the most on celebrities and fashion style stars.

Whether they’re neutral or black espadrilles, high or low heel, open or closed toe, this rope style is a Summer sandal essential. Not only are they super cute, they tend to be more practical for walking on cobblestones or to a romantic dinner on the beach on vacation.

For the best designer espadrille wedges, I really like Valentino. They make a few pretty styles in both wedges and flats including these gorgeous pairs that would be perfect to add to your resort wear looks or little summer dresses.

These are my top picks of the best designer espadrilles sandals and wedges for fashion and style. Some of these styles like the See By Chloe wedges and Prada flat espadrilles are selling out fast, so get them while you can.

I’ll keep updating this post as a lot of styles sell out as the season goes on as designers tend to make a lot less pairs available than a many of the mass produced brands.

Look out for the rock stud styles and lots of rope for the most on trend designer espadrilles for Summer 2023. Logos are still in so don’t be afraid of logo prints or names.

If you’re unsure what color to get, classic and versatile colors like white, nude or black are a good choice when splurging on designer espadrilles. So that they won’t date and so they’ll coordinate with as much of your summer wardrobe as possible.

What are Espadrilles 

Espadrilles are casual, rope-soled, flat, but sometimes high-heeled shoes. They usually have a canvas or cotton fabric upper and a flexible sole made of esparto rope. The esparto rope sole is the defining characteristic of an espadrille; the uppers vary widely in style.

The best flat women’s designer espadrilles sandals

Chanel is hard to beat for the best flat designer espadrilles Although Saint Laurent, Prada and Versace also have some really cute flat espadrilles. I had Chanel flats from 2015-2019 and wore them walking all over New York, Italy and Greece. I definitely got my fair wear out of them but I didn’t replace them as I got 2 pairs of slides instead for walking around European cities. Maybe next year but there’s only so many pairs of shoes a year in this girls budget.

Saint Laurent also does a really lovely pair of classic white flat espadrilles for women which come in a few different colors.

Are Chanel espadrilles worth it?

If you walk a lot or like comfortable shoes and want to splurge on designer espadrilles then yes. They’re are about as comfortable as espadrilles get and are a classic style that you can wear year after year. Flat Chanel espadrilles came out in 2013 and are still just as stylish if you’re wondering how long they’ll be in style.

If you’re only going to invest in one pair of flat designer espadrilles, I’d personally go for the simple beige and black or white and black toe capped lambskin leather Chanel espadrilles. They’re classic and are colors that go with pretty much anything including jeans.

The sole on the Chanel espadrilles is also pretty durable. So if you’re looking for luxury, comfort and style Chanel espadrilles are your answer.
