"Buy from the Poet Sandalmaker Stavros Melissinos" Clothes & Shoes Tip by Snipernurse

Clothes & Shoes, Athens: 13 reviews and 17 photos

Stavros Melissinos was sandal maker to the stars, the Beatles among many others made calls to get custom made leather sandals. Stavros is now quite elderly and his just as able son is now in charge of the shop. The sandals come in a variety of styles for you to choose from. One can imagine Plato, or Alexander the Great wearing very similar sandals. I got myself a pair but never catch myself wearing them, at least they made a cool souvenir. Each pair costs about 25-30$
