Espadrilles are light summer shoes made of natural fabrics, most often linen or cotton, on a rope flat sole. Originally invented by the Spanish peasants during the poverty times, when they had to make shoes from what they could find under their feet. Accordingly, the grass was the cheapest, so they used it to weave the sole. Nowadays, espadrilles have a canvas or cotton fabric upper and a flexible sole made of esparto rope.
