missoni-ugly.jpgI've never quite understood espadrilles. I get that they add height and they're a very popular summer style, but it seems to me that so much can go wrong so easily with the design. Take this pair from Missoni. The classic woven Missoni zigzag - in a very attractive mix of colours, I might add - is transformed into a pair of chunky, clunky and completely ungainly shoes with the addition of the woven, raffia wedge. If these espadrilles make even a "size zero" mannequin look like she's grown Clydesdale hooves instead of feet, what chance do the rest of us have? They're £350 from Net-A-Porter.
