Ancient Greek Sandals was launched by Christina Martini and Nikolas Minoglou. As Creative Director, Martini has a degree in Footwear Design, and both founders have grown up in Greece. Their love for the history of the country and its myths, art and jewellery inspired their brand, and continue to constantly inspire their designs.
With their first collection launching in 2011, Ancient Greek Sandals places priority on exceptional craftsmanship. All shoes are handmade in Greece by local experts, using traditional, age-honoured techniques. The exclusive use of chemical free, natural leather ensures that Ancient Greek Sandals footwear ages beautifully, and are built to last.
Classic styles are produced for men, women and children, as well as a line of accessories and leather goods. Their timeless designs are drawn from a largely neutral colour palette, with hints of metallics and subtle stud details, resulting in wearable pieces which fit seamlessly into any wardrobe. Following traditional styles, Ancient Greek Sandals adds a playful twist to classics, with collections of sandals bearing wings- a nod to the Greek mythology which inspires the brand. Ancient Greek Sandals have an effortless aesthetic, and their shoes are summer staples. From city breaks to beach retreats, the brand is a suitcase essential.
Ancient Greek Sandals has a flagship store in Athens, and their collections can be purchased through their website. Net-a-Porter, Matches Fashion and Farfetch also stock Ancient Greek Sandals designs.
