We just came across pictures of the Ancient Greek Sandals trunk show on the Moda Operandi website.
We love sandals. In fact we think it’s possible we might get more excited over sandals than over high heels.
On any given day you’re more likely to find us wearing a pair of sandals (flat sandals) than you’re likely to find us wearing high heels. There’s something about a pair of flat sandals. They’re cute and they’re easy to walk in (provided they aren’t uncomfortable in some way). They give you a light and laid-back, relaxed feeling.
The footwear brand Ancient Greek Sandals makes some very gorgeous flat sandals. The brand was launched by Greeks designers Christina Martini and Nikolas Minoglou in 2012.
According to the about page on their website, their sandals are “handmade locally by skilled craftsmen using traditional techniques that have existed for centuries.” They describe their sandals as having “a raw, yet feminine aesthetic” that distinguishes them from other sandals.
We would definitely agree that Ancient Greek Sandals designs some very nice sandals. At least from what we’ve seen in pictures. We don’t actually own a pair yet. The variety of styles is exciting. The quality looks superior (but we’re judging from photos). And we get that “want it feeling” looking through the Moda Operandi Collection.
Our top Ancient Greek Sandals Moda Operandi Trunk show picks
The Maria Sandal and the Frini sandal from Ancient Greek Sandals
The Maria Sandals in Natural & Black Vachetta are described as “sling back Ancient Greek Sandals” that feature “crossed straps rendered in vachetta leather”. You can get these sandals monogrammed. We probably wouldn’t bother with that aspect personally; but if you like the idea of getting your monogram on your sandals, you can do that. These sandals come with a $250 price tag.
The Frini are tall sandals that feature multiple buckle closures. These sandals are also monogrammable. They come with a $465 price tag. We think they’d look great with some frayed edge denim shorts and a nice breezy top in a shade similar to the sandals.
The Thalpori Sandal and the Electra sandal from Ancient Greek Sandals
Featuring a glitter embellished front strap, the Thalpori sandals from Ancient Greek Sandals are another pair of monogram optional sandals made of natural brown vachetta leather. They come with a $260 price tag.
The Electra are burgundy vachetta leather sandals featuring ankle straps that wrap around the foot and ankle. You can get these monogrammed if you wish. They come with a $215 price tag.
