If there’s any shoe that instantly comes to mind when we think “breezy vacation,” it’s the espadrille. With a relaxed, laid-back, and stylishly undone appearance, espadrilles are a signature summer shoe that’s perfect for the sunny escapades that lay ahead.


Start by reading these general tips on packing for summer travel:


What makes womens espadrilles shoes great for travel is that they are relatively flat to pack in a slim packing cube, to protect your luggage from your dirty espadrilles. They take the spotlight as the perfect spring and summer footwear because of their materials.

They’re made out of breathable fabrics and jute fibers, ensuring a comfortable walking experience and a travel-friendly structure. Like sneakers, womens espadrilles shoes tend to be better for travelers that don’t require much arch support.

Many are lightweight, packable, and have a hassle free, slip-on-and-go silhouette. With a variety of colors, prints, and styles to choose from, there is truly an espadrille for everyone!



Check out our list of ten summer-perfect womens espadrilles shoes below – perfect for the style-conscious traveler!

Jaycie Platform Sandal




We love this pick by Naturalizer because it combines two summer friendly styles: chunky sandals and espadrilles. Its jute platform pairs beautifully with the leather, all while adding a little more height to your look.

Appearance aside, this sandal is equipped with contoured cushioning for all day wear. Its adjustable strap offers a personalized fit as well as a glitzy touch of hardware.




Verona Loafer Flat


Sam Edelman


If you’re more of a prints kinda gal, opt for Sam Edelman’s Verona flat. These shoes are available in 10 different styles of print, all of which are super cute and perfect for playing up any look.

Cheetah print is always a great way to have fun with fashion, with the white and navy color combination of this pair being both summer appropriate and versatile.




Classic Sandal Flat




If there’s any style of espadrille that has truly taken the retail world by storm, it’s undoubtedly lace-up.

With its breezy, chic appearance and the on-trend lace-up design, this shoe would be perfect for a fashionable destination such as Paris in the summer. Pair with a pretty vintage-style sundress or ankle jeans for an effortless Parisian-chic getup.




Azella Theoni Slip-On Loafer




How fun are these shoes? This adorable navy and white dot print is reminiscent of a Mediterranean getaway, while the shoe itself is easy to slip on and has a comfortable jute-covered midsole.

With a variety of prints and colors to choose from, the Azella Theoni loafer from Clarks is a versatile summer classic.




Classic Espadrilles Heel




These espadrilles are the perfect blend of fashionable meets functional. Don’t let the platform wedge fool you – these handcrafted sandals from Spain are made of an assortment of natural, high-quality materials that make them a great walking shoe.

A soft, padded sole keeps things comfortable while a durable cotton canvas upper and real leather lining ensures stability for all day walking. And as you can see, they’re extremely cute.




Traci Wedge Sandal




Another ultra-cute wedge to flaunt this summer, the Traci wedge from UGG is perfect for all those outdoor parties and weddings that’ll inevitably be popping up in the coming months.

The cutest bow strap provides style and adjustability. Appearance aside, its arch support will ensure your fabulous self stays comfortable all summer long.




Lemon Platform Slipper




Elevate that summer OOTD with a sunny pop of print. These espadrilles from Soludos are too cute for words! Its chambray fabric is the perfect base for the lovely lemon adornment. Our pick? Wear with a white sundress and navigate the Caribbean shore looking cool and comfy.




Lee Espadrille Flat


Eileen Fisher


Think pink! These adorable sandals from Eileen Fischer are an easy outfit elevator. If you’re looking to keep things feminine chic during the day, then these are the shoes for you.

Strappy details play up the shoe’s silhouette while the leather/ jute blend adds a modern contrast. Pair with a white eyelet dress as you stroll along the sunny streets of Nice.




Pilar Chevron Flat Espadrille 




There’s no way we could put together this list without featuring a designer option for luxury-loving fashionistas.

While the famous Chanel espadrilles are something that you might have to wait on forever on TheRealReal, you can have these Gucci’s right now.

They’d go gorgeously with a floral sundress and a straw hat in a summer destination like Los Angeles or Barcelona. So luxe!
