Soludos was founded by Nick Brown in New York City in 2010. Nick was unable to find the traditional rope soled espadrilles he had grown up wearing on holiday along the Spanish Coast. Combining the clink of a glass 'salud' and the heat of the sun 'sol', Soludos was born.Espadrilles (from the Spanish word ‘Esparto’ for grass) have been worn in the Pyrenees and along the Mediterranean for centuries. Jute braids are woven together to form soles that breathe. They’ve simply updated the traditional espadrille design for the city, the beach and everywhere in between.
