The espadrille — featuring a linen/hemp upper stitched to a wedge bottom — created quite a stir among American women, who fell in love with its simplicity, comfort, and all-natural appeal. Andre Assous became known as "The King of the Espadrille," but he wants his brand to be known for so much more than that.
