Our fab find this week is a brand called "Ancient Greek Sandals". Just like the name says, they make sandals inspired by Greek symbols, mythology (gods and goddesses) and culture (pottery, jewelry, sculptures etc).
Their signature sandals are the ones with the wings inspired by the Greek God Hermes.
The sandals are handmade in Greece by local artisans using traditional techniques that have been used for centuries. They have a special detail on them, a "Golden Wing" buckle which is their trademark.
The company was founded in 2010 by Cristina Martini and Nikolas Minoglou. Cristina was born and raised in Greece and she previously worked as a shoe designer for Balenciaga (2008-2010) and for Louis Vuitton. Nikolas is the founder of myshoe.gr, the leading online shoe retailer in Greece.
Ancient Greek sandals are chemical free, they are made with beautiful natural tan leather and its raw but feminine aesthetic makes them stand out from the rest. The more you wear them the better they look and feel. They can also be monogramed with your initials.
