What is it about Chanel espadrilles anyway?!

chanel espadrilles-8

Chanel espadrilles are hot-buys for a while now, one of the fastest selling items I know. They tend to be sold out the same day when they arrive to the Chanel stores for sale (Chanel doesn’t sell them online). This is a weird phenomenon and I though I will keep myself far away from such a nonsense. It was a huge surprise when I woke up on Wednesday morning and my inner self made me impulsively decide to sit in my car and drive to Hamburg to check if any of the latest Chanel cruise collection* espadrilles is still available. I knew they arrived to the store on Wednesday and I thought I will push my luck to try (only try!) a pair on. They are quite pricey and its start of winter now, but anyhow… you know… a girl can be curious once in a while…

I was not in a hurry, I arrived to the store around noon, and I was pretty sure they will have nothing in my size. But then a very kind salesman with charming french accent offered me two different kind of espadrilles in my size. I was quite shocked but satisfied as well. There was a canvas one I know and admired on so many people lately and one brand new design for the latest cruise collection. It is calf leather, two toned and the leather is crackled.. I slipped my feet into it and that was it. I gave in. It is unbelievably comfortable, the leather holds my feet like a butter-soft but firm foundation and when I walk in them I feel the elevated, woven sole softening my every step. It’s done. I have purchased my very first Chanel shoes. The price is somewhere close to other espadrilles from high designer labels like Chloè or Proenza Schouler. The good news is that for a much better price sometimes it is possible to get original Chanel espadrilles on Vestaire Collective as well – if you get lucky even brand new ones are there on sale as well! But the thing is that you have to be just as well alarmed to get one online as when you want to buy one in the Chanel store. They just sell out in a blink of an eye. Really, what is about Chanel espadrilles anyway?

*cruise (resort) collection: it is a collection that arrives to the shops between winter and spring, starting in November. It is named after people who holiday during the cold winter months. If you want to get something after the winter items but don’t want to wait until the summer collections arrive to the shops (March) then cruise collections are for you!
