As seasoned San Franciscans, we know that these recent warm temps are numbered. So, we aren’t exactly ransacking shops for summer wares just yet. But, that doesn’t mean we have to succumb to bulky layers and bubble jackets either. We can still ring in spring in subtle ways, starting with our tootsies. And the first order of business is adding the perennial springtime stepper, the espadrille, to our rotation.
With that in mind, we've rounded up 12 pairs of cool roped soles to tromp around S.F.’s palm-tree-lined parks and sidewalk cafes all season long. From sophisticated and strappy leather wedges, to casual canvas flats, these staples will have you in a sunny state of mind — even when Karl The Fog comes to play.
