A classic summer look and shoe, these Cardiff Espadrilles by Seavees are ideal for the warmer weather.
Thanks to Bruce for flagging these up, although it is a job to find them. That seems to be a thing with all Seavees footwear past and present.
Basically, this is a US label (dating back to the 1960s) that doesn’t leave the US as often as other footwear labels. So if you want a pair, you might have to order from the US to get them. I know, a bit annoying. But look round, you never know, someone might have them nearer home – although I haven’t found them recently.
The shoe here is a design that goes back to the company’s 1960s roots. Timeless men’s lace-up espadrilles made with an unlined stretch canvas and finished with a jute-wrapped sidewall. There’s also a ‘cushy’ foam footbed with extra heel-strike cushion and the company’s exclusive cooling system with perforations for breathability and cooling airflow channels for extra cool comfort.
Three colours are available, although the flax pictured here is the one for me. $85 is the price. And if you see anywhere that sells these in the UK, please do let me know.
