The area
Address
Neighborhood: Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.

I have been shopping at this incredible leather hand made sandals store for over ten years, and will never even think of shopping for sandals anywhere else! They are some of the most talented designers and craftsmen I have ever seen and my sandals are always complimented anywhere I go. They are also incredibly well made, truly handmade by the owner and his family and it shows in the craftsmanship of every single pair of fabulous, authentic Greek sandals in the shop. The leather is high quality, the styles are always super fabulous and they last forever! The baby and kids products which I have recently started using for my daughter are just gorgeous too! I couldn’t be more grateful to have found the best ever “sandal guy” shop in Athens - where the city is known for amazing Greek sandals! They also have a kiosk shop at the Athens Metro Mall (their sister store called Handmade with Love) and it’s also amazing for handbags, accessories etc. You’ll be glad you showed there- I usually bring back four or five pair every summer when I leave Athens!

In 2007 I traveled to Greece and my time in Athens I found by chance this sandals’ shop. On the walls of the store are numerous models. Particularly, I prefer comfortable and simple models and I found them. I bought two pairs for me and a different model for my mother. Both have been delighted with these sandals over the years. In seven years sandals are not broken and I can assure that I have walked far with them. But logically, things coming to an end with use.
In all this time, I haven’t found other sandals that I like so much and which I feel so comfortable. So I looked for a way to contact with them to see if I was lucky and still making the same models of sandals.
I found a way to contact them by mail, I sent them pictures of the models of sandals and today have arrived.
The model of sandals I ordered cost 24€, a price that seems reasonable being handmade by themselves; the package has been arrived in 12 days to Spain (between Christmas parties); the sandals have arrived in a box in perfect conditions and are exactly the models I ordered.
Isidor has been very kind in our communication by mail, I consider a trust shop where I’ll buy in the future.
Treatment, quality and variety highly recommended.

I had purchased sandals up the street before finding this store and instantly regretted the previous purchase I made. The sandals here are supple and beautifully made...and the gentleman there even adjusted them to my poor swollen overworked feet. Don't buy anywhere else...it'll cost you more and you won't be nearly as happy. Tip...if your feet hurt as bad as mine did, ask for their padded sandals...no one else has these, they are hand crafted and only cost 40 dollars! Better than birkenstocks!

I went to to store because I love sandals and couldn't resist to the excellent comments! Yes, they are all hand made:) Instead of buy one pair I end up with 2 pairs of leather sandals, because I couldn't choose...! (Same style, 2 different colors) The style (ask the owner for his favorite style!) I chose fits nice to my feet, very original, and comfortable. When I tried on the ones with gold and silver strips, I just instantly fall in love! The prices are fair (from 10 to 45€, mostly around 20-25€). Excellent service!!! The best souvenir gift for my self ever!

I see good reviews on this shop, but I have different experience when I pass by the shop minutes to closing time. I only knew time was up as I picked out one shoe of my size and wanted to try and was going to get it if fits well. Sandals were placed along the walls so likely its for people to try out. Out of courtesy I asked the staff(if its the bearly big man being the boss, omg!) If I could try on, he grabbed the sandal from me and asked me for my size and then stonely said there is no size for me and turned his back on me. The most ridiculous reply as I coldly stared at the sandal with a no.8 size on it!
I turned into another road after this strange exchange and when I return to the street 5 minutes later, I saw him busy packing his goods back into store. I can only assume but go Melissinos Art instead even if they are more costly but at least their service is tip top!

We were sorry and quite surprised to read your review. However, none of your descriptions fit our store or its owner and staff. It is very clear to us that you must be referring to a different shop selling similar products on the same street (there are at least 6 stores selling similar-looking products in this region of Plaka, Athens). We are well-known for our courtesy to our customers and have always strived for the best possible service, as a consistently top-selling merchant since 1947. We hope this might refresh your memory, as we are absolutely certain this review mistakenly refers to a different store and not Sandals4U. Kindest regards.

I didn't end up purchasing sandals here but the fact that they do almost all the styles in US size 5 (eur 35) is great as the other sandal stores don't do this elsewhere.
Lots of styles to choose from at a fair price given the sandals are hand made and leather.

If you have the chance to find yourselves in the Capital of Greece , Athens , then you need to make a stop to this magnificent , traditional but in the same time modern shop at Plaka. I found leather handmade sandals with excellent quality and amazing designs. I have tried more than 10 different pairs and all of them were comfortable and unique. I could not decide what to buy !
The owner of the shop is very friendly and he is there to assist you with the best way .
I will definitely recommend this shop with the most beautiful leather sandals in Athens!!

This shop is the best sandals shop I have seen in the world. All sandals are of super leather quality and if you need sandals that are not in the shop actually they will be ready for you within 30-45 minutes - in top quality. I didn´t believe it until I visited this shop - now it´s a must when I´m in Athens.

This might have been one of our best shopping experiences. The owner of the shop is gracious and extremely helpful - there isn’t a hint of pushiness or over eager selling! We tried on many pairs and he explained features and made suggestions. These are authentic, handmade all-leather sandals that he and his wife produce. AND the prices are really really affordable for this type of shoe. Definitely stop by if you are looking for the authentic Greek sandals that everyone loves. Many many styles to choose from. We couldn’t have asked for a better shop. Enjoy!
