Save Steal Splurge: the Espadrille

Flip-flops, wedges and even jellies have all cemented themselves in our collective minds as summertime staples, but the one shoe that beats them all — no matter the time, place or prevailing trends — is the espadrille. And while they’re available at just about every price point, you’ve got reason to splurge on a designer pair: the luxe leather uppers and hand-crafted quality means that you won’t be looking for another pair next summer. But for those of us who beat up or shoes or can’t stand to step out on the boardwalk without spilling milkshake on our feet, there are plenty of canvas options — the OG iteration, we’ll have you know — that’ll be your hottest summer fling.

Save: TOMS Classic ($54)

Steal: Soludos Classic Espadrille ($55)

Splurge: Gucci Pilar Canvas and Leather Slip On ($295)
