Espadrille advice?

I am in the market for some flats, and I was thinking espadrilles might just be perfect, since I have ridiculously sensitive feet and always get heel blisters from stiff canvas shoes. Does anyone have recommendations for a really comfy flat or espadrille? Something cute to wear with dresses?

I love Toms shoes. Espadrille like but with a comfyier sole and their philanthropy is extraordinary good. Check it out.
ps - I've been meaning to say hi for a while. Love your paintings - I'm your neighbor in Petaluma (Egg City)

Thanks so much for saying hi Hilary! Egg City looks super awesome. And thanks for the Tom's advice. I totally forgot about them. I used to own some and they are definitely some of the comfiest shoes, and a great company!!

Toms really are the best flat, but more casual. Check this out (and I'm personally not a fan of Target shoes in general) but this is great -|1287991011&searchSize=30&sessionID=175-4341835-6180428&searchPage=1&searchNodeID=1038576|1287991011&searchBinNameList=subjectbin%2Cprice%2Ctarget_com_primary_color-bin%2Ctarget_com_size-bin%2Ctarget_com_brand-bin&frombrowse=0

I love the look of the Target one, Ceri! But then I read the reviews, and everybody said they fell apart instantly, but I guess that's Target for you. Maybe it's still worth it since they are so cheap?!
