Fashion Friday: Soludos Espadrilles

SUBSCRIBE TO SKIMBACO FASHION UPDATES. I am participating to Fashion Friday, hosted by Blonde Episodes and I couldn’t resist featuring Soludos Espadrilles. Soludos Espadrilles are the trendiest cheap shoes for the summer that you must get now before they are all gone! Espadrilles have always been my favorite summer shoes, they form perfectly to your feet, and they are great to walk with and go from beach to shopping, making them the perfect vacation shoe. You can dress them up too for the hot summer nights when high heels are too much and sandals won’t cut it. Espadrilles were part of my childhood and teen summers in Europe, and the entire last summer I was hunting them down every where after seeing people in Europe to use them again. I was in Europe in early May and again in late August and I guess it was too early and then too late to score me a pair, but luckily I was able to find a pair of Soludos from a boutique in Park City last summer. Soludos was founded last year by a New Yorker who was like me, he couldn’t find a perfect pair of espadrilles in the US, so he decided to start his own company.

The best about these comfy shoes – they are only 28 bucks! Well, I remember when espadrilles were IN the last time… they were less than ten bucks a pair and I had them in every color. But however you look at it, these shoes can’t be beat in comfort, price and quality, and I couldn’t recommend them more. They are vacationer’s dream shoes, they are light weight and great to walk with. And they just look cool. I know that Tom’s Shoes are trendy too, and look a little like espadrilles, and many actually confuse my Soludos often for Tom’s. I absolutely love the idea behind Tom’s shoes, but they run for 54-56 bucks, and quite frankly I like the look of original espadrilles better, and I can donate the thirty bucks that I save when I buy Soludos to a charity of my choice. I also love espadrille wedges, and love using those too – but nothing beats the flat espas for days when there is lots of walking involved. Celebs like Kate Bosworth & Jennifer Garner have both been spotted in Soludos Espadrilles as well, and you gotta love when the cheap style is a celebrity favorite too. I spent a good hour trying to find my favorite color and print in my size online – these are selling better than hotcakes, so if you want to score yourself a pair, act fast.

  1. I just got my first pair this year, the denim ones. They are so versatile! They’re going so fast on all the sites, I hope I can snag a second pair this season!
