Fairytale Fashion: Ancient Greek Sandals


These handmade leather sandals may look like they’re cosplay, but they’re actually from shoe-makers Ancient Greek Sandals, who craft each pair locally using traditional techniques. All their designs are inspired by characters from Greek mythology: the style above is called Nephele, after the cloud nymph.

Of course, as soon as we saw these sandals we were reminded of Meg in Disney’s Hercules, as they are similar to the natural tan criss-cross sandals she wears in the film. They also feature a pair of wings around the ankles, a fabulous quirky detail and a nod to Pegasus, Hercules’ loyal steed.

Hands up, who’d sell their soul to Hades for a pair of these beauties?


The Nephele sandals retail at €160.00 and are available online from Ancient Greek Sandals.
