Handmade espadrilles are stacked floor to ceiling by size in this simple shop, a Madrid mainstay since 1863. The rainbow of colors, materials, and designs range from plebian day wear to delicate white lace-up-the-leg versions fit for royalty (the princess wears them). There are starchy, shiny black espadrilles for weddings, espadrilles for men, and espadrilles for babies. The straw-soled shoes retail from 7 euros to 25 euros (about $9–$32).
