What happens when an American with a background in fashion moves to Spain? He dares to disrupt the espadrille — the country’s (and really the season’s) unofficial shoe.

These newfangled unisex versions by Michael Tonello’s Respoke, crafted from vintage silk scarves by the likes of Hermès and Chanel, create a one-of-a-kind slip-on that’s the trendsetter’s answer to effortless summer style.

Find them locally at Boyds in Rittenhouse for $495 a pair.
