Those who will be in the Basque region on around August 15th should go to Mauléon (where espadrilles were first created) for the city’s annual “Fête de l’Espadrille” as they pay homage to this iconic shoe. If you want to follow the trend, here are 10 of Biarritz’s (and its surroundings) best spots to find a perfect pair of espadrilles this summer.

Launched in 2008, the brand first distinguished itself for using the colors of each rugby team from the South-West region on its espadrilles. Made in Mauléon, Art Of Soule’s espadrilles are praised for being the perfect mix between originality and tradition. Indicative of its success, the store was recently featured in Madame Figaro Japan.
