If you're planning to treat yourself to a designer shoe purchase, it's always wise to invest in the classics. You are, after all, going to withdraw thousands of pesos from your bank account so it might as well be something that will last—a pair that won't feel "off" and outdated even if you wear them again in five years. 


Speaking of timeless, one of the classic designer shoe styles that continue to withstand time is Chanel's espadrilles. In a report by Who What Wear, it was revealed that shoppers search for this iconic shoe on Google 100,000 per month. Crazy! 

The nude espadrille is detailed with a contrasting black toe cap (fun fact: the nude-black combo was designed to visually lengthen one's legs!) and it's embossed with Chanel's double C logo. If you're looking for a pair of flats that you can look sophisticated in on laid-back days, this is it. 

According to Chanel's website, the loafer-style shoe retails for $725 (that's around P39,150*), but if you're still saving up for that designer purchase, here are other elegant (but affordable) espadrilles worth adding to your shoe collection:
