Shoe Trend: Espadrilles
June 02, 2011 | by photograph by Camilo Rios | Homepage
Espadrilles are worn and made all over the globe, but their origins in the Pyrenees have given them French and Spanish citizenship (along with an undeniable connection to the Basque and Catalan cultures). Now thanks to The Webster, you can sport a pair of handmade, old-world beauties directly from the French label Pare Gabia, which means “matchless” in the Basque language. These shoes certainly live up to their name. 1220 Collins Ave.
