From our stylists


Despite the tourists, Aqaba still has a sleepy, former-fishing-village feel. The city’s stark concrete promenade remains the domain of local families who snack on grilled fish or smoke from snakelike nargilas along the Red Sea. We love coming here. This time we came prepared though! We brought espadrilles for me, my husband and my son.

It was Instagram that introduced me to the Sea Star Beachwear Espadrilles. Seriously, wearing them is like walking on clouds. They stay on super well yet don’t rub or pinch, and look as good with jeans as they do with a play suit, shorts or a dress.

Espadrilles remind me of growing up. I remember seeing my mum wear them a lot. She was always tan, with the best legs around. She seemed so glamorous, especially in the spring and summer with her open knit sweaters, beautiful necklaces and those chic espadrilles.

Sea Star Beachwear was founded by Michael Leva and Libby Fitzgerald in the summer of 2015 with the goal of creating the ultimate resort and summer water sport shoe and lifestyle brand for men, women and children. The classic espadrille design was re-imagined with a waterfriendly neoprene upper and a protective rubber sole. 

The neoprene fabric is stylish, breathable and quick-drying. The non-marking, non-skid deck shoe sole makes a safe jump from beach to boat.

The timeless collection features solids and prints perfect for the resort or urban lifestyle. It’s the perfect shoe for ocean swimming, strolling shell-strewn beaches, slippery boat decks or hot city pavement.

Don’t be afraid to get these shoes wet! Beachcomber Espadrilles love to swim and they love to sit in the sun. Just 15 minutes in the sun and they’ll be dry and ready for your next adventure!

Perfect to pack for your beach weekend, they are the only shoes you’ll need.
