New Look Canvas Espadrille
Advantages: Loads of colours to choose from and cheap
Disadvantages: They aren't the best made shoes and won't last a long time
New Look is one of my favourite places to buy shoes. Their selection is reasonably priced and they are really good at keeping up with all the latest trends and the selection changes on an almost weekly basis so there is nearly always something to be had.
During the summer I bought a fair few of their plimsolls and their Espadrilles not that I got too many chances to wear them with our awful summer but they were just nice fashionable shoes that were comfortable and casual to wear when we did get a nice day.
They have a massive selection of Espadrilles and you can find a pair in almost any colour. Some of them have the more traditional rope like soles while some of them have a rubber sole and look more like plimsolls.
I have a few pairs of Espadrilles as they are so cheap and usually on offer that I tended to stock up on a couple of pairs every time that I went in the store. They are usually about £7.99 for the plainer designs and they were selling them at one point two for £10 which made them a bargain.
They are made of canvas which is really thin and not all that well stitched together to be honest. The soles are quite thick but the canvas is so thin that even just trying to get a pair on your feet which might be a bit small for you can cause them to tear as happened to me when trying some on in the shop.
The thinness of the canvas does make them really lightweight and breathable and they feel lovely on my feet when the weather is warm. I find them to be so comfortable to wear and even when walking in them for prolonged periods of time I didn't find that they caused me to get blisters or irritated my feet.
I think that they are the ideal holiday shoe as they go fantastic with nearly everything and I have worn them with jeans, dresses and skirts and because you can get them in nearly every colour and because they are so inexpensive you can buy them to match whatever it is you are wearing.
For me I would definitely recommend New Looks Espradilles as they are colourful, comfortable and importantly they are extremely good value for money. Don't go in and buy them expecting them to be the best made shoes in the world as they aren't but for this little money what do you expect. A pair should last you the summer and as there are loads right now that are in the sale I would recommend that you stock up on some now while they are extra cheap so that you already have some for next summer when hopefully the weather will have improved.
Summary: Comfortable, colourful and cheap
