Mirtos Men must have been the kind of shoes ancient Greek philosophers wore while attending lectures and dialectics at the Platonic Academy, when not barefoot. If you look closer at Raphael’s famous fresco “The School of Athens”, you’ll notice that one of the two central figures, the elder Plato, is depicted as old, grey, and bare-foot walking alongside a younger Aristotle, who’s wearing strappy sandals and gold-trimmed robes. This fresco along with others portraying life at ancient Greece, including figures wearing strappy sandals for men have been a huge inspiration for the creation of Pagonis Greek Sandals’ collection.
In ancient Greece sandals were the most common type of footwear. They were worn by both men and women. The Greek sandals had many straps which were used to securely fasten the shoe to the foot. The strappy sandals for men like our Mirtos model were worn as an everyday footwear but also as a reliable pair of shoes during wars and battles.
Like every Pagonis Greek Sandals leather item, Mirtos strappy sandals for men are exclusively handcrafted in our Naxian workshop by the members of Pagonis family, proudly making one shoe at a time for the past 80 years, using old traditional techniques and fine materials.
