Every summer I feel like I’ve had a pair of black espadrilles and every year, there’s something wrong with them. Don’t fit great, not comfortable, something that makes me donate them. I tend to lean more towards earth tones in the summer and leave my black pieces for fall and winter. But I still do love a black and denim combo. With that, it was time to pull the trigger on the espadrilles I’ve been eyeing since I tried them on during this fun trip.
No surprise here that I love Castañer espadrilles. And when I was on a girls trip to Spain last summer, we stumbled into their store. I demanded me visit before jetting off to our next destination. Wasn’t too hard to convince my three best girlfriends to go shopping of course. We popped in and tore the entire store apart trying on just about every shoe. There was a major sale going on and stock was limited. I tried on these shoes and just can’t remember if I either couldn’t pull the trigger or they didn’t have my size. Either way, a year later, I ordered them. I just had to have them.
This was also the trip where I learned this mind-blowing espadrille trick to properly tying them. They’re 100x more secure and don’t flop around when you tie them this way.
