Say Hello to Your Go-To Summer Shoe, Loved by Kate Hudson, Miranda Kerr and More

Miranda Kerr
 


Step into summer with a tried and true seasonal staple: the espadrille. The lightweight shoes with rope soles that originated in Spain have been around since the 14th century, and, boy, do they have staying power! The style is sturdy without being clunky, and comfortable while still stylish. And though espadrilles are traditionally offered with canvas uppers, modern takes on the shoe incorporate suede, leather and other luxe materials. Scroll down to see how your favorite stars wear theirs!
