Cloth espadrille wedges are sandals with a wedge heel. The defining characteristic of espadrille wedges is the natural or synthetic rope-like material used on the outside of the sole. The upper cloth material can be made from any fabric, but it's usually cotton. No matter which type you own, clean them gently to prevent wear. Proper care can help you maintain the look and durability of your espadrille wedges.

Brush any excess dirt from the wedges with a soft-bristled brush.

Spray any dirty areas of your wedges with fabric cleaning spray. Allow the cleaner to dry completely.
