Wrap the soft velvet straps of this wedge espadrille around your ankle and prepare to turn heads. Balanced by cool linen and a braided jute wedge, they're expertly made in Spain by the masters at Castañer. The brand—named after its founders—traces its history to 1776, when the family's first espadrille maker was born. After outfitting soldiers during the Spanish Civil War and earning attention on the feet of the public, they caught the eye of Yves Saint Laurent, whose partnership cemented Castañer's status as creators of coveted footwear. The rest, as they say, is history.
