Traditional espadrilles have been made in Catalonia (Spain) since the 14th century and were worn by both men and women. But, the casual canvas and jute sandals gained instant fame when they were spotted on the infamous Brigitte Bardot, who was photographed wearing a pair in St. Tropez during the 1960s.

Today’s espadrilles have taken the lowly peasant footwear to new heights. For spring 2011, cute cut outs, ankle wraps, and much (much!) higher wedges prevail.

Finding the perfect pair should prove simple, as every major shoe designer offers his or her take on this classic. My top picks are from several prices ranges, so no matter what your budget is, you can grab this great spring trend!
