I love heels and in the Summer I think espadrilles are fun to wear. Combine both of those together and you have the Sam Edelman “Novato” Slingback Pump. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a shoe like this and it’s quite unique looking. From the front it’s as if it would be an espadrille but from the back it looks like a heel! Makes you wonder if it’s comfortable or difficult to walk in? Then again, I guess you would just call the front of the shoe a platform and it makes it no different than what we see in the stores.
When I think of espadrilles, I instantly think of a Spring or Summer shoe. I would never wear them in the Fall or Winter unless I was at some tropical island that was hot all year long. I love the “Novato” because it really does mix it up and makes it look way different than the modern day espadrille. You might be even to get away with wearing it more often. It’s definitely an interesting shoe to have and would look amazing with a pair of shorts.
You can purchase the Sam Edelman “Novato” Slingback Pump at Nordstrom for $99.95.
