You know when it’s warm, but just not warm enough to walk around in flip-flops? Or when circumstances ask for just a little more fabric around your feet? That’s when you need espadrilles, Havaianas espadrilles. Built in a light fabric but still covering your feet entirely, they’ll make you feel less ‘naked’ while you still won’t be wearing real shoes.
How do I know this? Havaianas asked me to review their espadrilles and as all women will surely understand, I couldn’t say no to a job that needed me to try on shoes.
Havaianas espadrilles review
The Havaianas espadrilles have the same rubber sole as the Havaianas flip flops, which makes them super easy to clean off. I’m mentioning this because I like to wear the espadrilles around the apartment when it’s still a bit too cold to walk barefooted.
The downside to these rubber soles might be that they make your feet a bit sweaty when it’s really warm outside. I haven’t had this problem yet, but I can imagine that if you’re walking around on a sunny day in what is still a closed ‘shoe’, on rubber soles, that might be the cause for smelly feet.
The Havaianas espadrilles come in a wide array of colors and can be machine washed, which is really practical. I was a bit afraid that they would cut into my feet as the fabric looked rather robust, but that wasn’t the case at all. I think Havaianas made a smart move by adding the rubber protective line at the top of the espadrilles.
I got them in the size I usually wear and they fit perfectly around my feet. I do know people who prefer to get them a size bigger so that they fit more as a regular shoe, but I don’t find that necessary as the fabric becomes soft and stretches a bit the more you wear them.
Havaianas espadrilles are meant to be worn like shoes, but a lot of my friends wear theirs like some kind of flip flops, leaving the heel part down.
Actually, I know a lot of guys who own espadrilles. Girls can easily wear nice sandals or ballerina’s when flip flops are a bit too casual or open, but guys don’t have that many options. I think espadrilles from Havaianas are a good option in between flip flops and light sneakers.
Oh and one last plus: they look super stylish.

Havaianas offered me a pair of espadrilles to review, but I’d never kept wearing them if I didn’t genuinely liked them. This post also contains affiliate links. That means that I earn a small commission, at no extra cost to you, should you purchase anything through these links.
