ANCIENT GREEK SANDALS
The Browns' edit of Ancient Greek Sandals showcases the brand's cornerstone: to offer footwear which reflects a love of Ancient Greece and showcases unique manufacturing skills. Taking inspiration from the tale of an ancient Greek sandal maker who enriched each pair with magical powers, footwear designers Christina Martini and Nikolas Minoglou's brand references the ancient culture’s Gods, myths, pottery, jewellery and sculpture, blending perfectly into a raw yet feminine aesthetic. Born and raised in Greece, Martini obtained a degree in footwear design from the prestigious Cordwainers College after working at Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton, while London-raised Minoglou returned to Athens after college to run his family’s footwear business. Ancient Greek Sandals are handmade locally by skilled craftsmen using traditional techniques that have existed for centuries.
