Every summer has its must-have shoe, and this season is undeniably all about the espadrille. Recognized by it's esparto rope sole and canvas upper, the comfortable classic is a... shoe-in... when it comes to summer styling. And while summers' past saw wedged and lace up versions dominating, this year the iconic style has received a bit of a revamp, with designers high and low opting for totally walkable flat versions and cool new takes on fabrics and embellishments like textured leather and hand-beaded crystal. Equal parts comfy and chic, the slip-on shoe has already received some serious love from Bravolebs.
And Kyle Richards' leather versions prove to be a much chicer alternative to sneakers:
