I can just see it: me, walking down a random street in Soho, and another woman coming towards me from the opposite direction, wearing these espadrilles. I'll stop in my tracks to ogle her feet as she sashays by. I will wonder if Chanel still makes these shoes. I will also wonder (and worry) how much they cost. Turns out Chanel still has them in stock, and in various colorways, to boot (beige/black toe, green/black toe, blue/black toe, and white/black toe). They cost $395. Not bad. (My husband says that I always say that.) I don't believe you can get them anywhere online (you can phone order them from a Chanel boutique), but it also turns out that there are other less expensive but still very cute options, like these red and blue ones from Topshop for $24, and this chambray version from J. Crew for $36.
