It takes approximately 20 – 30 minutes from the moment you decide which sandal style you want to get.
The time depends on your requirements. But in general, you can have your sandals the next day.
Tracing of the Foot
Place your bare foot on a sheet of paper on the floor, exerting your full weight on the foot for precise measurements, while someone else is slowly tracing around your foot ensuring the pen or pencil is at a 90-degree angle.
Measure The Length
With a measuring tape, measure from the edge of your heel to the edge of the longest toe.
Measure The Width
With a measuring tape measure, from side to side, the widest part of your bare foot at your bunion joint.
We use whole grain vegetable – tanned cow leather, from the tanneries of the Greek island of Crete.
I do not sell over the internet. Selling over the internet would require me to compromise the quality of my bespoke sandals. You can either buy my sandals in person, in my sandal atelier, where I adjust all the sandals perfectly to people’s feet, or through a friend or relative, visiting Athens. Make sure they’ve got your right measurements,
THE THREE REASONS THEY ARE NOT AVAILABLE ON LINE:
My hand-crafted sandals as products of love and personal joy combined with quality are not mass-produced for speedy delivery to customers. I do not feel satisfied unless I see the footwear I create perfectly fitted to your feet, but since people’s feet are so different, I often have to get your measurements and I also have to re-adjust the sandal straps for a perfect fit, right on the spot.
As I mentioned above sandals have to be fitted to individual feet for comfort! So, I strongly believe that buying sandals or clothes over the internet is like buying a “pig in a poke”.
My true reward (believe it or not) is my happy faced customers, who buy my bespoke sandals and tell me that my inimitable shop, with its upbeat and colorful atmosphere has been the highlight of their trip.
I am afraid that I am an incurably romantic person, who strongly believes that the essence of an individual’s being is found in the honest, kind and unpretentious, daily joys of life and after all, that’s what I preach through my art and poetry as well.
