At Soludos we love the summer. And growing up espadrilles meant the start of the summer. We would buy a bunch of pairs and live in them. Now we are grown up we want more people to make them an essential summer staple.
What is is special about Soludos®?
While Soludos are very much classic espadrilles we have worked hard to make these standards anything but standard. We are fanatical about the type of jute that we use - not too hard, and not too soft - and this makes them amazingly comfortable. Many of the versions out there don't even have a left or right but just one shape. Well we have gone for a left and a right and also specific men's and women's versions. We have spent considerable time on our fabrics and fabric patterns to ensure they are a more comfortable and stylish fit on your foot. We do not compromise on the quality of our 100% cotton fabrics which let your foot breathe more easily. We also use inner linings to give your foot added comfort. Finally we use a full rubber cover for the sole that helps in case of a rain storm. And don't even get us started on Flip Flops!
Are Soludos® just for Summer?
Well it depends where you live. By summer we mean lots of sun and not much rain. So if that is you year around then by all means have at it 365 days a year. But otherwise it might be best to keep them for the good days.
What does Soludos® mean?
Soludos are a Mediterranean tradition so when we named the company we were inspired by Salud (Cheers) and Sol (Sun). Cheers to the Summer!
How do I know they are genuine Soludos®?
Only genuine Soludos have the registered trademark sign on the label. Look on the topline for the name and know you get the comfort.
Can you explain the recent price increase of Soludos®?
Due to circumstances way outside our control (and we can barely control ourselves never mind the global commodity markets) the price of both Jute, the eco-friendly fabric that makes up our soles, and cotton, used in our various uppers, have increased significantly since we started Soludos. In response we have had to raise our prices, from their very low base. The Dali stays pretty much were it was but for the more complicated patterns, the Miro and soon to be released Pico range (amazing), we have had to make a change. This will be across soludos.com and our retail partners. We are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality espadrilles and ensuring that Soludos continues to be a summer essential. That means making a shoe that both lasts and one that hits a great price that you can stock up on. We are working very hard on maintaining that balance and feel confident we can continue to hit that spot.

Shipping and Handling cost will be made clear at checkout and will vary depending on where your order is being shipped and the type of shipping chosen (if there is a choice).
For orders within the United States, UPS Ground will typically take 1-2 business days for delivery to North Eastern states, 2-3 business days for South Eastern and Mid Western states, and around 3-4 business days for Western states. We feel these delivery times are pretty accurate and don’t want you spending money on shipping costs unnecessarily. As a third option, you can select our UPS 3-Day Select option. With this delivery option, you will definitely have your Soludos anywhere in the country within 3 business days.
Orders to Hawaii and Alaska can only be sent via USPS Priority, and will typically take 5-10 business days.
For International orders we have tried to find the best rates for you, which in some cases means it may take a little time before you are wearing your Soludos. We use USPS Priority International for Mexico and the UK (both typically 5-10 business days).
With all our delivery methods shipping will only cost an incremental $2.00 per shoe for each additional pair of Soludos ordered.
Soludos does not process or ship orders on Saturday or Sunday. Expedited orders will ship the following business day. Allow up to 2 business days for processing of orders placed with ground shipping. The day of pick up does not count as a day in the shipping time.
Pre-order is a system that we have created for customers to reserve Out of Stock Shoes. Don't worry we do not take any money from you. You will be alerted when these shoes come in. Soludos does not guarantee that the shoes requested will be available however we will do everything we can to give you priority access to new stock.
Soludos ships all domestic orders via the United Parcel Service (UPS) and all international orders via United States Postal Service (USPS). All domestic orders sent via UPS will be issued their order tracking number. International orders are not issued a tracking number unless the customer requests insurance and delivery confirmation. If that request is made before order is dispatched a tracking number will be issued. Soludos is not liable for items lost, stolen or damaged in the mail and upon delivery of merchandise to the carrier, and you will assume the risk of loss and title for the merchandise.

Soludos are European in heritage, so we use full European sizes.
Soludos fit true to size (unless it is noted in specific style notes).
Soludos fits true to size. They might feel snug at first but they will stretch.
Please try your Soludos® on a carpeted surface (rather than a beach) to keep them as clean as possible until you know they are the correct size. We do not accept returns or size exchanges on shoes that show wear or use.
Soludos® are perfect for the summer (or the lucky places that are always summer) but they won’t last forever. They age and change and finally die.
It’s the price you pay for their natural construction – a Jute Sole and cotton upper rather than rubber or plastic. We like to think it of it as part of their charm.
Soludos® don’t do well in the rain. They are not great for activity. You can keep them in good shape longer by keeping them dry, especially the soles. A damp sponge can help remove some dirt from the cotton upper.
Soludos ships online orders to the United States, Great Britain, Mexico and Australia. International customers are responsible for all shipping, duty and taxes associated with the importation of all merchandise. ALL international sales are final.
Shipping is calculated automatically at checkout. Cost will vary depending on the number of items purchased, where your order is being shipped and the type of shipping chosen. Duty and tax fees may also be applied when your order reaches customs. Please review prices before placing your order.
