Sea Star Beachcomber Espadrilles Review:

Price and Where to Buy: Sea Star Beachcomber Espadrilles are available for $95 on Nordstrom’s website and $96 on Sea Star’s website.

How the Sea Star Beachcomber Espadrille Sandal Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Water shoes are a must on most beach or active trips to a tropical destination. These do double duty as you can wear them as flats with other beach vacation outfit options.
  • Value: 8/10. At almost $100, these shoes are a little pricey, but they are multi-functional and priced pretty fairly in comparison with other high-quality water shoes.
  • Durability: 9/10. The neoprene material holds up well and dries fast, plus the rubber bottoms are sturdy and comfortable.
  • Portability: 10/10. These shoes pack flat and are lightweight.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. I think these waterproof espadrilles are stylish and love the laser cutout style. Sea Star also makes a slingback version and another espadrille style (without the cutouts) that comes in tons of colors and prints.

Final Verdict: I’ve been in the market for a stylish water shoe for awhile now and this is the answer to my search.
