Summer Distilled in a Shoe

Soludos Espadrilles Launch

soludos espadrilles!

Sometimes, your toes get tired of daily exposure. Slip them into something more forgiving, like a new pair of Soludos espadrilles.

The breathable cotton shoes, founded by London transplant Nick Brown, will relieve the inevitable summer flip-flop fatigue.

The comfy fabric protects freshly pedicured toes from sidewalk silt, while the jute soles have a light rubber coating — a fresh update for the classic Mediterranean slipper.

We love the way a pair molds to our feet after only a few wears, and dig the way the backs can be worn up (it’s a slipper!) or down (it’s a mule!). The variety of fun unisex patterns, from graphic triangles to playful striped denim, will make it hard to choose just one.

And since they are less than $30 a pop, you don’t have to. Click over to the just-launched online store; there’s not a flop in the bunch.

Available at Steven Alan, 103 Franklin Street, between Church Street and West Broadway (212-343-0692 or stevenalan.com); online at soludos.com, $24-$28.
