Whenever you find yourself in the center of Athens, in the old Plaka area just below the ancient rock of the Acropolis, don't forget to go past Handmade Sandals (or Sandals4U.gr) on 88 Andrianou street.
If you're looking for traditional Greek leather sandals for the whole family, or the latest leather fashions, you'll be amazed at what they have on offer. Tell the charming owner, Isidoros, what you like, and he will hand-make customized pairs especially for you, with all kinds of incredible decorations.
By far the best place for your summer pair of sandals, or a terrific gift to bring back home with you. Highly recommended!
