Castaner Style Guide
Castaner, an iconic Spanish espadrille shoe brand known for their craftsmanship and original style. We know how difficult it can be to decide which size, style and heel height is best for you, so stick around to find out more.
The history behind the brand...
In 1927, Luis Castañer and his cousin Tomas Serra founded the brand's first workshop - soon after during the 1930s Spanish Civil War, the Republican Government nationalised the company and soldiers were sent off to war wearing '7-ribbon espadrilles'.
By the 60s, and under the helm of the next generation the brand took a more fashion focus, adding colour to the linen uppers for the first time - gaining popularity outside of Spain for the first time.
The pivotal moment for the brand came in the 70s during a trade show in Paris where their quintessentially Mediterranean brand caught the eye of Yves Saint Laurent, who had been working on the idea of a wedge heeled espadrille - and so the partnership was formed!
Since then, Castaner has created espadrilles for the likes of Hermes, Louis Vuitoon, Chanel, Tom Ford, Fendi, Oscar de la Renta, Lanvin and many more luxury fashion brands, all the while
Styles we stock at Made the Edit...
Castaner Carina Espadrille Wedges
A classic style we all know and love and is a must-have for the Summer season, the Castaner Carina Espadrille wedges in tan have a lace-up tie to wrap around your ankles and also features the classic espadrille wedge measuring 8cm which we think is the perfect height. This style looks fabulous with pretty summer dress but equally looks lovely with a pair of skinny jeans.
Shop Carina HERE.
Castaner Carol Espadrille Wedges
If you want a lower wedge height Carol is the style for you. With the heel height being only 7.5cm this elevates you enough without being uncomfortable and allows you to walk around all day in comfort. The ankle fastening also adds extra security.
