It can be tricky to find an appropriate form of footwear during summer. Your designer sandals are good after the beach or out for a coffee, but not so great on the sand. Your thongs can handle the water – not to mention the shower at the public pool – but let’s be fair, they’re not a fashion piece.

The Soludos espadrille has since helped bridge a gap in beach footwear. Originally worn by peasants, they have endured in the Mediterranean for centuries. Soludos have helped catalyse a resurgence in this simple beach style, creating a flat, nonetheless stylish canvas shoe that we just love.

Now, in a summertime collaboration, Soludos have joined forces with the simple, everyday aesthetic of bassike so bring us the Soludos x bassike shoe.

This classic canvas espadrille has been revamped to create an even better fit via its thicker sole and breathable organic cotton uppers, which are available in two-tone variations of ink and panna cotta, so they can be worn with almost everything.

This summer, be sure to dust the sand off these slip-ons before hitting the city. They can be worn anytime and almost anywhere – just not in the water.

Available at bassike stores and David Jones. $49.95
