We’ll be real with you for a sec: Either you unabashedly love espadrilles and try like hell to wear them almost exclusively through the months of June and September — or you hate them. There’s usually no real in-between. And we can’t blame you. While the Spanish rope-soled sandal is majorly comfortable — and if styled with similarly insouciant separates can be just as chic — a corklike bottom isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

Still, designers have been trying to reinvent the classic style of late, so no longer are all espadrilles only of the slip-on variety. These days, you’d sooner find half a dozen iterations — flats, wedges, backless mules, slingbacks, sneakers, and tie-up styles among them — in stores.

And with that in mind, we found 13 so-cool espadrilles you’ll want to scoop up ASAP — even if they’re not your cup of tea.
