This is the place for espadrilles...great variety and reasonably priced too. Watch the hours they are closed on Sunday. Be ready with your order and there early because the line will be long and the shop is tiny

Arrived about 9.15am on a Monday and only waited a few minutes. The gentleman who assisted me was very patience as I don't speak Spanish, and he helped me found the shoes that would fit my orthotic. Found three pairs but, could've easily bought more.

Great shop with every colour and size espadrille you could want at very good prices. Also do kids sizes in the same range of colours. Adorable miniature espadrille fridge magnets for a few euros each.

Casa Hernanz is one of *the* places for espadrilles in Madrid. Heard about the long queues, but thankfully visiting in December and going there around opening time meant no queues. Lots of variety and colors. Take a picture of the shoe that you like and...More

Got myself 2 pairs of stripped size 44 (ladies) and they are so comfortable. I was hoping to find some "pretty/fashionable" ladies shoes but basically had to purchase a mens style. None of the fancy ones went up to my size. Short wait. No English...More

This was my second visit to Casa Hernanz in Madrid, and love the different styles of shoes they offer at great prices. The shoes that I purchased two years ago, were ideal for the weather in Arizona; and I came prepared with pictures and sizes...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as

I would recommend ordering a half or even full size smaller if it’s soft fabric. Mine stretched a lot and cannot wear them anymore.
