    i really like soludos style and it looks pretty well made. its too bad the mens designs are so BLEH.... where as the womens line has much better looking espadrilles.

    does anyone else know any good espadrilles brands? with good designs?

    also does anyone have experience with mens soludos sizing? i usually wear 9.5 sometimes 10. should i get size 10 or size 9?

    their size guide says to get your usual size... even though they will stretch out?!

    My shoe size is definitely 9-9.5, and since my feet stopped growing I always go 42 for espadrilles, with I believe is 8.5. Go down half a size?

    I've been very happy with Ropey Soles. IIRC they end up being about $30 a pair with shipping to the US, which is annoyingly high, but they have nice designs, are unbranded, and have held up quite well.

    thats the problem with me. i usually wear 9.5 or 10. But soludos doesnt have 9.5. so i felt it would be better to just go size 10/43 rather than it be too small at 42/9.

    8.5=41
    at least thats what soludos says it is.

    i got this pair.

    expensive shipping [​IMG] but they look nice. now if only they didnt have the brand tag... maybe i can unstitch it off

    Just for reference, I just got my first pair of soludos today.

    As a warning for anybody interested in them, I recommend sizing down!!! I usually wear size 10 but if they are even a bit loose, your feet will keep slipping out when you walk. Aside from that they are pretty good.


    They also rape you in shipping costs. Original price was $36 and ground shipping was $10. I ended up having to return and exchange for a smaller size and since they DONT offer free returns, it cost me ~$9 at fedex ground shipping. So yea.. get your size correct the first time!

    Soludos needs to be like Bonobos and their costumer service.

    I'll check with Spanish friends and see if they can snap a few photos so you guys can decide what color / styles you want. Should have all the standard colors, plus some classic designs like florals

    i dont know about everybody else but i dont wear anything because of trends. granted im not going to wear something from the 70s (even tho im 20) but whatever i like im going to wear it... and espadrilles are very comfortable and id much rather wear them than flip flops

    Anyone still wondering about Soludos... I just have to say again.

    If you order from soludos, MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RIGHT SIZE!!!!

    They are unbelievably slow at processing an exchange...especially to me because I'm 1 state away from where their warehouse is.

    No free return+slow processing = annoyed costumer.
