How to find your perfect espadrilles
Summer proper is nearly upon us, and even if good old Blighty is refusing to show us the sun, we will soon be collectively packing our bags and heading off on our annual bucket and spade – huzzah! So, what with the sales in full swing, now is the perfect time to snap up your summer shoes, and what sings ‘here comes summer’ more than a pair of espadrilles?
