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!

And though espadrilles are traditionally offered with canvas uppers, modern takes on the shoe incorporate suede, leather and other luxe materials.
