Ladies of the Canyon

Posted by Anna Tobler on

Laurel Canyon is the often mythologized and romanticized hillside community where Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell, Jim Morrison, Neil Young, Linda Ronstadt and friends retreated to create their unique folk-psychedelic rock sound during the late-1960's. Our Laurel Canyon Espadrille is inspired by the deconstructed, easy-going nature of the Lookout Mountain scene.
