A graphic take on a warm-weather essential: The Catalina Canvas Espadrille — in high-contrast ivory and black — is a casually chic way to wear the season’s athletic-inspired trend. The easygoing silhouette has a classic jute footbed with a rubber sole and elasticized crisscross straps, designed to stay on the foot for a sporty look and an airy, open feel.

I bought these espadrilles last season and loved them. They fit true to size, were comfortable and allowed my feet to breathe - perfect for hot summer days. A significant portion of the sole (bottom) is jute which soaks up moisture. You know those unexpected summer storms? Unfortunately, I wore these shoes one day when a storm rolled through. A small amount of walking around resulted in wet soles. I dried the shoes in the sun and sprayed disinfectant on them but they still mildewed (think mildew on the shoe sole the bare foot sits on). I contemplated buying them again this year but they're too impractical because of the sole issue. If Tory Burch covers the entire jute sole in rubber (similar to other espadrilles I own) I'll definitely buy them. Until then... 2 stars.
