Lika Mimika - Germany


I love comfortable shoes in the summer (my go-tos are either Toms or for the first time this summer Huaraches, which are classic Mexican shoes which I'll write about soon), but these espadrilles look absolutely perfect. Super simple, they're elevating this classic slip-on of my youth through different variations of leather (suede, goat, calf). Bright colors are usually not my go-to, but here I would go for it. And in fall/winter, they usually offer these espadrilles with fur on the inside - which are also perfect for travel. My favorites are their classic espadrilles with the thin soles.  I think founders Marijana Condic and Lisa Leipziger really got it right!
