Spring shoes you'll love

Though espadrilles have been made since the 14th century, these cute shoes soared in popularity in the United States in the late 1940s when many celebrities, including Lauren Bacall's character in the film Key Largo, wore them. These rope-soled shoes have been in and out of fashion ever since, but they are back once again in a big way for spring.

Espadrilles are defined by their rope sole while the uppers vary in style from closed toe flats to sky-high sandals. Depending on which type of espadrilles you choose, they can be worn with everything from a t-shirt and shorts to a cool spring dress. Let's take a look at the latest trends in espadrilles for spring.
