I love these espadrilles! They are very comfortable from the first wearing, and get even more so as I continue to use them. The bottoms have a great grip, and are perfect to wear when I'm clambering over beach rocks to take, and pose for, photos with my family and friends. I'm so happy to have come across this brand...I currently have this pair, along with a pair of menorquinas that I purchased in one of the Barcelona shops. I'm waiting for another pair and can't wait to wear them.
