I was using them in high school, and when I was in college, a very close friend influenced me again to use espadrilles. Then it went out of trend, and I used different footwear that I felt comfortable with, but nothing beats the comfort that espadrilles gave me.
And now, it is back. The moment I saw one, I desperately asked a guy where he bought his pair, and I was awed at the many espadrilles a certain store here in our place displayed, which he pointed.
I bought one from the husband's office mate, but it took her time to deliver the pair I ordered, and so I have to wait. Until last December, the husband surprised me with my blue pair, and it never left my feet whenever I go out. But then again, since I am working in a government office with a color-coding uniform I have to conform to, I have to wear some close pair with heels, to which I am really not fond of, but have to. But yes, I still love my espadrilles and use it when I go out, even during free days in the office when I am free to wear tee shirts, which I love very much!
Yesterday, a good friend gave me a pair of maroon espadrilles! Yay! I just love the new pair, it feels so comfortable to my feet, and I can alternately use both whenever I feel like using it. The espadrilles are originally from Spain, and I dunno why, but I just love them. If there's one you'd call a comfort food, I'd call my espadrilles the "comfort walking partner".
What about you? What footwear do you love to wear and feel comfortable walking with?
