Okay, so espadrilles were really last summer's thing, but as anybody who has ever worn them knows, you can't beat them for comfort on a sizzling day. I was just told by my doc that I needed to get some to wear for medical reasons! Cool, huh? Well, not really; I got a case of plantar fasciitis out of nowhere and every other shoe currently hurts the bottom of my foot with every step. Barefoot hurts like blazes as well, so I have to wear shoes indoors, too. Doc said, for the next month or so, I could wear orthopedic shoes (yeah, right, NEVER gonna happen--what am I, 80?!), or high espadrilles. So, of course I went on an espadrille-buying spree at Endless. I know I'm on a supposed spending freeze, but they are medically necessary, right?! :) I only bought
three four pairs and all were under $100, so I think I behaved pretty well. Here are the ones I liked best:
$275 Kate Spade
Lindsay Wedge Espadrille
I really, really wanted these, but couldn't
justify the price.
High Roller Wedge Sandal
Loved these and the price is right, so got them—
they also come in black and denim.
$43.50 Wild Diva
Never heard of this brand before, but they're
super cute & cheap, so figured I'd give them
a shot. Also come in brown and camel.
Jamba Wedge Sandal
Gorrrgeous. Didn't get them, but still thinking
about them. Might still have to get them.
$79 Franco Sarto
Ambrosia Wedge Sandal
This comes in a slew of other colors as well. Franco Sarto shoes are usually good for my feet, but the Wild Divas won over these for me.
Joshua Tree Wedge Sandal
I love these. Got them in this color, but they also come in black and burnt orange.
I don't know if these are technically espadrilles, but they are so pretty, I couldn't help myself.
