The espadrille is a classic shoe. The fiber sole screams spring and summer and steady base makes for easy walking. Pair it with everything from skinny jeans for a day of erranfs to your LBD for date night.
The Jimmy Choo Phyllis espadrille retails for $375 and is a great addition to any closet. The criss crossed patent leather straps keep your toes nice and snug while the braided platform gives a bit of a nautical feel.
If you’re not willing to drop close to 400 bucks, Steve Madden has you covered with a near identical look for less. The Genesis espadrille will only set you back $89.95. There are slight differences in the Madden version: platform height and width of the straps but other than that, it’s a great cheap chic alternative.
