It's that time of year where your tootsies get to glide along in comfortable traditional Basque slippers updated for today's cool off-duty looks. From wedge heels to flat and from denim to leather, these contemporary gems will take you from summer through fall in a timeless flair.



Nothing evokes the feeling of summer in Spain like the espadrille. These humble jute soled shoes have a 4000 year old history with a more historical account dating back to the 13th century gracing the feet of both men and women. In the 1880s, they were worn by military, priests and mine workers becoming part of the popular culture. Traditionally, the lighter or white fabric was worn on Sundays and the black version was worn during the week. Kenzo has Espadrilles ranging in color and black or white jute soles for your weekend and weekday wardrobe.



Espadrilles became a favorite summer accessory of Hollywood's elite such as Grace Kelly, Sofia Loren and Jackie Onassis. In the 1947 film 'The Lady From Shanghai' Rita Hayworth donned a pair with ribbons tied around the ankle as well as Lauren Bacall in 'Key Largo.' Ernest Hemingway, Salvador Dali and JFK were spotted wearing their sporty chic espadrilles during seaside vacations. Finally, it was Yves Saint Laurent that gave them a wedge elevating them to runway must-haves in the 1960s and the rest, as they say, is fashion history.



Popular among the most fashion savvy of today, the stylish espadrille kicks off when the winter chill subsides and takes you through fall in casual elegance. Proenza Schouler has updated the classic with a bi-color sole and leather upper creating a cool off-duty vibe while Tory Burch has captured some of the romance of the 1940s as well as See by Chloe with an updated ankle strap. One pair just isn't enough to enjoy the thrill of the espadrille.
