FYU SHOE FACT: Espadrilles or espardenyes are casual, flat, but sometimes high-heeled. The existence of this kind of shoe in Europe documented since at least 1322. Wedge shaped espadrilles were first popularized by French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent. At a trade fair in Paris in 1970, he came into contact with the Spanish espadrille manufacturer Catañer. The espadrille style was revived in the USA in the 1980s, due to the success of Miami Vice.
