Traditionally the alpargata was black or natural, the black one for work and the lighter version por sundays.
Around 1950 fashion evolved, and the designs had to be more sophisticated, and in the 60's Mr Yves St-Laurent asked for espadrillos with heels, suddenly it was all the rage!
Sometimes they have laces that ties around the ankle,and they are still extremely popular in the Mediterranean countries, in the summer the sole which is 100% natural, molds itself to the shape of the foot, and allows the skin to breathe, which is very comfortable, and after so many years they're not to go out of fashion now.
