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.
