Where is Jacques Cohen (Espadrilles) When I need him

My usual quest for close-toed, comfortable, heeled shoes stopped here. Jacques Cohen-my beloved espadrille company is no more (since Jacques Levin slipper company purchase him (Jack) and added fancy strings to his shoes). Someone, EM&M Espadrille is taking pride in knocking off the Jacques Cohen Espadrille and these shoes seem to be a hit among you East Coast preppies from Connecticut. Currently, these darling numbers are available in black and lavender.

I need a good wedge heel for an outfit. But I need them in brown I think. xo

Yes, I loved them too. I wrote a post on them and other replacements a while back. They are hard to find. Good to know there is another one available.

I had espadrilles when I was younger and to tell you I loved them. I just purchased a pair on shoes.com today with the code of SALE for an xtra 20% off on sale merch. The ones I bought were the navy and white stripe.
These look so darling and I might be in need of purchasing these.
I believe in comfort for my feet.

I used to by my wedge-heeled espadrilles at Millers Outpost in the late 70s and early 80s when I was in high school. I'm not sure if they were made by Jacques Cohen, but they definitely had the cut that was his signature. I have not seen that exact look duplicated in over 25 years.
