Best Espadrilles: The Raffia Roundup

Best Espadrilles

Though there are those of us who live in temperate climates and get to wear espadrilles all year long (sorry!), I know you’re not all in that same sun-kissed boat. With the back-and-forth between winter and spring weather, I can see why someone would be gun shy about these shoes, but now that warm temps are becoming the norm, it’s time to go shopping. While most of these come in shorter-heel versions, I say go big. The best part about wedges is how comfortable they are for their height, so take advantage! Besides, higher heels make for a better bikini body, even if your rewards card for that killer pizza place gets more mileage than your running shoes!
