Prime Wardrobe: Espandrille Review

Let's Spend Some Money, Reviews

Open Toe Espadrilles are a big trend this summer! They’re perfect for dressing up denim shorts and a tee on the weekends or paired with skinny pants and a blazer for the office.

If you’re like me, shoes are really hard to fit. My feet have been tortured by years of running and it seems I need to try on about 100 pairs of shoes to find one that fits! Enter Amazon Prime Wardrobe to the rescue. I ordered multiple pairs of shoes ranging from $32 to $178 and have 7 days to try them on then just pay for what I want and ship back what I don’t like or want.

Here’s what I got, what I kept and what I sent back!

Via Spiga Nevada Espadrille Wedge Sandal, $115.58

The quality of these was beautiful. Unfortunately they felt a bit too narrow and a little to short in the toes for me. Normally my foot runs fairly narrow so this was a bit of a surprise for me. At $115 I just couldn’t justify the purchase price.

Badgley Mischka Berkley Espadrille Wedge Sandal, $75.51

These Badgley Mischka shoes are everything you’d expect from the brand. Comfortable, well made, a little edgy and beautifully luxurious. The silver color feels very special in this shoe. The sale price makes them affordable luxury. I’m on the fence on these as to whether I NEED them or really need them. They’re not quite as versatile as the pair I had initially on my shopping list.

 

MVE Shoes Open Toe Cutout Ankle Strap Platform Wedge, $32.97

These open toe cutout platform wedges offer trendy, affordable fashion and fit surprisingly well. They don’t feel quite as luxurious as the $100+ shoes but they look great for a designer dupe at a bargain of a price. They’ve definitely made my list of top 3.

 

Vince Camuto Leera Espadrille Wedge Sandal, $99

Anything Vince Camuto is pure love in my book and these shoes are do not disappoint! They’re comfortable and polished and the leather is soft and feels luxurious. I normally struggle with the toe bed of shoes being too wide for me. Reviews stated that the toe strap of this shoe ran narrow and for me that turned out to be a perfect fit. At just under $100 they’re at the higher end of my budget but so far these are running in 1st place.

 

Andre Assous Reese Espadrille Wedge, $178.95

I wasn’t familiar with this brand before ordering but decided to take advantage of the Prime Wardrobe service and see what almost $200 shoes felt like on my feet. The leather is soft and you can immediately tell these are expensive shoes the second you put them on your foot. They feel a little more “boot” than I wanted however and at the end of the day I just can’t justify the prices tag. If your budget is a bit higher however, the quality of these is fabulous.

 

Kenneth Cole New York Olivia Espadrille Wedge Sandal, $130

Kenneth Cole. Those two words say it all. These shoes are beautifully made and comfortable. They do however feel a bit more fall than some of the other espadrilles and have a few fit issues on my problematic left foot. They’re so beautiful in person though, I can’t help but keep them on the short list. Ultimately I think the left foot fit issues and $130 price tag might make them a pass.

 

Coconuts by Matisse Bonvoyage Espadrille Wedge Sandal, $46.61

These espadrilles go on the boutique quality, budget list. They fit surprisingly well and the heel and platform height are really comfortable while still maintaining the espadrille style. The only thing that I don’t like about these is the skinny strap and the fabric feels a bit cheap. The combination of comfort and price though still keep these in the top 3 for me.
