I sell padre buckle for shoe (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

espadrille

Here is my best explanation:

'shoe' is the definition.

(espadrille is a kind of shoe)

'i sell padre buckle' is the subsidiary indication.

'buckle' indicates an anagram.

'i'+'sell'+'padre'='isellpadre'

'isellpadre' with letters rearranged gives 'espadrille'.

'for' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for espadrille that I've seen before include "sandal!", "Plaited fibres in its sole", "Footwear", "Shoe with a canvas upper", "Light rope-soled shoe", "goes on foot", "Rope-soled shoe", "[SHOE], made casually", "footwear" and "you put your foot in it".)
