DRILLES was founded by Amy E. Williams a London fashion and features journalist with over a decade of experience working on national newspapers, travelling the world and interviewing high profile celebrities and business leaders. After trying and failing to replace a pair of beloved grey leather espadrilles she joined forces with Barcelona-based shoe designer Sara Tesouro to create DRILLES.


The challenge was to design an espadrille that would last more than one season, that would take you anywhere, from beachside to bar, from your desk to a date, and from Portobello Road to Portofino and beyond. The shoe we needed in our lives! 


DRILLES are created using the softest leather and a traditional jute sole. We’ve taken the time to try and test our design, to make sure the choices we have made in the production process make our product as sustainable as it currently can be, and we’re confident that DRILLES are the perfect all day any day shoes that you'll want to travel in, loaf in, dance and walk for hours in them... we hope you love DRILLES and wear them as much as we do.
