Raffia shoes are made from a flexible straw fiber found on trees native to tropical regions of Africa, and especially Madagascar.

Most commonly associated with vacation and summer wear, celebrities are often seen in raffia sandals and wedges during the warmer months of the year.

Raffia is one of those shoe styles that always come back for spring and summer.

The usual sandals, wedges, and platforms have already started appearing, but some designer labels have come up with some unexpected but nice twists to this seasonal shoe trend.

Which of the following designers do you think did raffia best?

Ralph Lauren Collection raffia & leather platform sandals, $750.00

First up is this sexy ankle strap sandal style from Ralph Lauren. The bamboo-like heel is a nice touch.

Brian Atwood Mojito raffia heel color block sandals, $1,452.00

Brian Atwood has been giving us a lot of colors.

Check out this festive ‘Mojito’ sandal that uses woven raffia in the simplest yet most unconventional way.

Burberry raffia and leather printed wedge loafers, $1,095.00

Blake Lively has already shown us what Burberry has to offer in terms of woven raffia shoes but the British label lightens things up with this interestingly printed wedge loafer.

Charlotte Olympia Rapunzel braided raffia wedges, $1,495.00

Charlotte Olympia is another label that’s used raffia for many of its spring 2012 styles.

Reed Krakoff raffia oxfords, $595.00

Possibly the simplest out of all the shoes featured in this post, this Reed Krakoff raffia loafer is probably the one that would get the most wear.

Pair it with straight-cut jeans, a loosely fitted t-shirt, and a fedora — just a few warm-weather pieces that are essential spring/summer staples.
