Espadrilles - yay or nay?

My la redoute catalogue tells me they are "everywhere this summer". So who's wearing them, and should they be flat or wedge?

I personally like the cork heeled look...

Don't know about style, but for comfort and versatility yay! Wedge for me.

I used to wear them all summer when I was a teenager - really great and so comfy (that would be the flat ones) Where can you get them these days?

Nay way! .

Loved them the last time they were in and plan to get some for the summer.

Don't buy expensive ones, they disintergrate (sp?) in the rain

ordered some flatties from la redoute, but tried to get some with heels and they were out of stock for 11 weeks!

where can you buy the cheap flat ones, other than abroad? Have a few pairs but need some more navy ones!

nay for me. ankle straps are a BIG no no w/ballet calves unless they're on pointe shoes.

Are we talking wedges with ribbons up the ankles (in which case yeah) or those weird little flat things like discarded flour bags (in which case nay)???
