The summer shoe
Posted on July 12 2016
Espadrilles (from the Spanish word ‘Esparto’ for grass) have been worn in the Pyrenees and along the Mediterranean for centuries. Jute braids are woven together to form soles that breathe, making an affordable and practical shoe that's perfect for the summer climate.
Soludos was founded by Nick Brown in New York City in 2010 when he was unable to find the traditional rope soled espadrilles he had grown up wearing on holiday along the Spanish Coast. He then updated the traditional espadrille design for the city, the beach and everywhere in between.
Seen all over Instagram and with designer/blogger collaborations that just keep getting better, Soloudos has become a true summer classic. This season our love goes out to the platform gladiator which looks just at home on the streets of East London, pared with denim as with a kaftan on a sandy shore.
