These espadrilles come in both canvas and leather upper. The jute rope or braid extends beyond the wedge heel, and wraps around the ankle. I'm generally not a fan of this type of detail, but I was willing to overlook it in this case.
In taupe leather:
In brown canvas:
Wedge height: 4 inches.
Platform height: 1 inch.
Sizing: TTS. Normal width. Around the ankle, definitely needs an extra hole punch for smaller ankles.
Comfort: Surprisingly, decently comfortable under the feet. The problem, however, is that if I was to punch an extra hole into the strap for a better fit, the strap dug around my ankle and would most surely cut into my skin after some walking. Of course, that's a deal-breaker.
Price: $49.95 at DSW.
Other colors: Also comes in cognac leather which is not really cognac, but a darker version of the taupe (slightly brownish). The canvas comes in olive, black, and nude.
Overall: A pretty decent shoe for Steve Madden. I really like the peep-toe and t-strap design, but again, like yesterday's shoe, too high for my daily walking. If you have slightly larger ankles than my own that don't require an extra hole punch into the strap and you can walk around with this high of a heel then I would actually recommend that you try these out. For me, return.
