Es­padrilles’ mo­ment in the sun

Los Angeles Times - - ESSENTIALS - —Janet Ki­nosian

The hum­ble es­padrille has glammed up quite a bit since its ori­gin as peas­ant footwear in Europe’s Pyre­nees moun­tains. To­day the shoes can be found in a va­ri­ety of colors and de­signs, though still with their defin­ing jute-wrapped sole. De­sign­ers have vi­brantly re-imag­ined the mod­est es­padrille for sum­mer­time.
