Lola low wedge soleAre you looking to make your own shoe? The original Spanish espadrille sole is a great eco-friendly option, no need for glue or animal products. All you need is a pair of soles, a needle, 5 meters of thread and some canvas.
One of the great things about making espadrilles is that even if you are not very experienced, if you make a mistake, you can unstitch and start over as many times as you want. This is not the case when making other types of shoes due to the common use of glue, a messy process where you only get one chance to get it right.
Sole height: 3cm (1.5")
Finding the right size: Our soles are true to European size. If you want to make 100% sure you are getting the right size, measure the exact lenght of your foot and add roghly 1cm (0.4") to find the correct sole lenght you need.
What is the sole made of? The espadrille sole is made with jute, recycled cotton fibers and natural rubber from the aloe vera tree.
Did you know? Most fake espadrilles soles from China are made with petroleum based rubber that will become yellow with time and break apart. Authentic Spanish espadrilles soles have natural rubber from the tree melted to the sole, not glued.
