It’s All in the Name - The Original Espadrille
Forty years ago, Andre Assous set out to craft the ideal women’s sandal. By combining his Spanish roots and passion for footwear, he turned his designs into a timeless trend
True to the tradition of making espadrilles, each of Andre Assous’ designs was handcrafted in Spain, using the finest materials and supreme craftsmanship. What separates the espadrille from other wedges is its woven jute midsole, layered around a sturdy cork and held together on a durable rubber sole. Originally worn without an insole or padding, Andre added a comfortable leather footbed, instantly turning it into a summer staple. Our mission to deliver comfort with every step continues today.
Each of our flats, sandals, heels and espadrilles feature a unique footbed that mimics your movement and conforms to fit your foot. Many of our shoes use goat-skin leather which is softer than regular leather. Underneath lies a layer of cushioning, which create the soft, lush texture-it’s what we imagine walking on a cloud would feel like!
Our espadrilles continue to be handmade in Spain and undergo the same high quality standards. Stamped into each footbed you’ll find “Handsewn in Spain” and “The Original Espadrille,” a tribute to our long history.
Just like Andre, we continue to set trends by reinventing the classic espadrille wedge into a variety of styles including wedges, flats, slip-ons, sandals and even sneakers. Designed with love each pair is a handcrafted gift from us to you!
