These are definitely loud and would definitely require you to take a muted approach to the rest of your outfit, but unlike plimsolls which got old as soon as the high-street started to mess about with any colour other than black or white, this is a good chance to stay ahead of the game. Toms are without doubt the finest espadrilles out their and bridge the gap nicely from the throwaway pairs on the high street to the designer offerings from Paul Smith and Kitsuné. It’s an almost Aztec print and they (for the moment) offer a nice new spice to the espadrille world. They are available at Oak.
