Why Espadrilles 'are' so Miami

Updated: Sep 29, 2021

Fall in Miami - The Insider Guide to our favorite City.


Miami is our home - so we know a thing or two about this amazing and vibrant city. The place is a perfect combination of stylish-metropolitan international vibes and the tradition of Latin lifestyle.




We believe that Miami is by far the best place to live in the USA, and this is also why we feel that Espadrilles 'are' Miami.






Espadrilles represent the very core of timeless Southern European quality values that have existed for so long in Spain and around the Mediterranean.

Hand-made products, produced and worn by simple people - long before these shoes became a stylish fashion staple with movie stars like Grace Kelly, or celebrity models like Claudia Schiffer.


And Miami's history is not all that different- the now glamorous and sparkling city comes from humble beginnings too.







Humble beginnings indeed, like quaint and artsy Coconut Grove, the first settlement in the southern part of the city in 1873, when artists and adventures discovered this amazing tropical spot.

Then the second half of 20 th century brought about a fantastic expansion of the city's economy- often driven by the hard work of Cuban immigrants.


Cuban culture has influenced a lot of the fascinating 'latino' style of this city.

In recent years, a further amazing transformation has made today's Miami into a vibrant international metropolis of Tourism, Commerce, Banking, the Arts and so much more.


We could write a book about this city - but here we will just give you a few highlights about what to do in Miami this Fall - looking stylish in your espadrilles from PARGAS MIAMI.


If you’re looking for a place where you can enjoy a vibrant city life and have a swim in the turquoise waters- even in October- then Miami is a place to be.

Endless rows of palm trees, famous South Beach and Ocean Drive, numerous shopping opportunities, museums, charismatic art deco architecture, delicious food, ocean-facing, all that and much more can be found in Miami.



Miami is a waterfront city, so taking a boat tour is an absolute must and a great way to see Miami’s highlights from the water and eappreciate guide’s stories about the city. Highlights of these trips often include Fisher Island, Brickell Key, the Port of Miami, and magnificent intracostal homes of the rich like Star Island, and of course the amazing Miami Skyline.




Onboard these boats you will usually be asked to either remain barefoot or wear flat boat shoes. If you show up in a pair of flawless white pants and blue espadrilles for Pargas Miami - you will , most certainly, be greeted like the owner of a super yacht.






Miami Beach has plenty of hotels that offer excellent pools facing the Atlantic Ocean such as Loews Miami, 1 Hotel South Beach or the Hilton Bentley Hotel. Spend at least one day soaking in the sun and gazing at the ocean.






Of course, you should not be seen poolside at any of these chic places without a pair of ultra-comfortable, and stylish Spanish espadrilles from PARGAS MIAMI .









You'll venture from any of these hotels to a variety of close-by Miami Beach neighborhoods - sporting your comfortable espadrilles.


Of course, there is an endless line-up of amazing restaurants across this town. Again, the list would be too long, so we propose just a few great ones.









LA MAR - Gastón Acurio’s renowned Peruvian restaurant inside the Mandarin Oriental, Miami.





It takes serious talent to skillfully execute the complicated raw dishes La Mar puts out daily, and chef Oka’s got it in droves. La Mar’s waterfront patio is another sight for sore eyes, offering diners a 360-degree vista of Downtown and Brickell.


You certainly don't have to dress formally here - but showing up at this elegant place in a light grey summer suit for dinner, with some comfortable navy blue espadrilles will never be "out of place" in this chic Brickell venue.







Then there is STOBBORN SEED, an edgy neighborhood restaurant South of Fifth on Miami Beach where Top Chef Jeremy Ford doles inspired new American cuisine you’ll be craving long after your meal.



There’s a thoughtful subtleness to Ford’s cooking, which we find at once unconventional and familiar. Starters like the gooey jalapeño fritters and the cacio e pepe cheesy puffs will leave you asking yourself, why have I never tasted this before?




This October you should perhaps be seen at STOBBORN SEED in a hot miniskirt with a flowery blouse- accentuating your amazing slim and long legs- and a pair of stylish off - white Spanish espadrilles wedges.


The combination of your looks and this place will have the crowd turn heads for sure !!












Then, of course, there is the casual Mandolin Aegean Bistro in Buena Vista, Miami - near the Design District.


For an authentic Greek meal with a side of beautiful, Mediterranean-inspired scenery head to Mandolin. Bold blue doors and subtle splashes of cerulean give the feeling you’re dining somewhere along the Aegean coast, especially on balmy fall nights.


This is where MIAMI, Florida meets SANTORINI, Greece.


The place is as casual as you want to dress, as long as you wear a pair of the coolest and most stylish Spanish espadrilles you will find west of Madrid - Pargas Miami.


Of course there is plenty of opportunity to go shopping all over Miami.


Visit the amazing Brickell City Centre that brings three levels of unparalleled shopping, dining and entertainment anchored by a ultra-modern Saks Fifth Avenue store.


There are plenty of other Luxury stores in the 500,000 sqaure feet complex, featuring a mix of premium, contemporary and new-to-market brands in.







Just a short distance to the South from there you find Mary Brickell Village - a staple shopping and dining destination of Downtown Miami.








Of course you'll make sure to do all your walking around Brickell in a pair of classy espadrilles form PARGAS MIAMI.


Their light and breezy material will provide you a perfect fit and cool comfort for your feet even on a warm day.









An absolute 'must' destination for Miami shopping is , of course, the Design District , a sophisticated and inviting international destination for fashion, art, architecture and fine dining.

Just north of midtown Miami, the district is a treasure trove of luxury fashion boutiques, edgy art galleries, engaging public art and trendy restaurants.




Take a rest from your shopping spree across Miami, and spend a relaxing day at the beach near South Pointe Park on the southern tip of Miami Beach.

The water will still be pleasantly warm all the way into late November.









This is definitely the place to unwind and enjoy the brilliant sunshine and those wide open views accross the blue Atlantic and the Miami Beach skyline.

Casual and always chic, your espadrilles will get you there in style.


Clearly, we have not even scratched the surface of the many other things to do in MIAMI this fall.


Make sure you spend some time in tropical CoconotGrove for more shopping and dining...


... and explore some of the amazing Art Deco architecture Miami Beach has to offer.


We hope you'll spend a pleasent time in our beautiful city this fall.
