About our espadrilles - Construction and sizing

LizzB London espadrilles are designed in London and then handmade in Spain, the home of the alpargata.  All our designs are unique to LizzB London.

We actively chose to work with a manufacturer in Spain who preserves the traditional process of making espadrilles.  This method of handmade production keeps artisanal skills alive and preserves the authenticity of the product resulting in no two pairs of espadrilles being the same.

 

We try to retain the iconic nature and design of the original espadrille because that’s what we fell in love with.  We love the simplicity and practicality of this shoe for summer because the jute sole allows the foot to breathe and keep cool. 

 

It’s been around over 4000 years so it’s going to be around for a good deal of time yet!

Measure your food without a sock and compare your foot measurement with the table above.

 

Our espadrilles are true to size, however, depending on the material, please consider the following:

Canvas: this material is stiff when new but with use tends to stretch slightly.  If you have wide feet or a high instep we recommend you buy one size up.

Leather: this material tends to adapt to the shape of the foot with use.  Please order to your regular sizing as they will stretch with wear.
