What are Espadrilles and where did they originate?
#117772. Asked by dark_princess8. (Sep 25 10 7:07 AM)
Espadrilles are casual flat or high-heel fashion sandals originating from the Pyrenees. They usually have a canvas or cotton fabric upper and a flexible sole made of rope or rubber material moulded to look like rope. The jute rope sole is the defining characteristic of an espadrille; the uppers vary widely in style. In French Canada, however, espadrille is the usual term for running shoes or sneakers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Espadrilles
