THE perfect summer sandal...

This time last year...I was prancing around Greece on the most amazing vaca ever! On the top of my to-do list in Athens was to pay a visit to Pantelis at Melissinos Art. Pantelis is a third generation sandal-maker. His father made sandals for Jackie-O (Love her!) and the Beatles, just to name a few.

Here's a picture of us with Pantelis. I was so excited to be at the store and sit in the exact chairs that the Beatles and Jackie-O sat on when they were fitted for sandals!

Here's Pantelis working on my Jackie-O's!

I got 2 pairs...the Jackie-O (shown at the top) and the Theta(pictured below). The best part is..they were so affordable at around $35-40 each. These hand crafted sandals are PERFECT for running around on hot, summer days and they are extremely comfortable.


You can order them online at the Melissinos Art website. Enjoy!!

I went to Melissinos as well when I was in Athens! I got the gladiators maybe 3 years ago and I am still wearing them this summer! I love how the leather changes color and gets so soft. It is the perfect sandal, isn't it :)

I love this - I'm going to Athens in 2 weeks. I also had a pair custom made when I was in Positano 2 years ago. So cool! ;-)
