Footwear of the (Greek) Gods

It’s spring! Most of Team Faschionism are hibernating as the winter has been dramatically hard on us, but to tide you over while we decide how best to get the blog of fashion excellence up and running again, here’s the best sandals you will ever see in your natural life:

At nearly three hundred Euro these aren’t what you’d exactly call cheap, and even the less dramatically theatrical shorter and shinier ones are only half the price… which sounds good unless you realise that half of three hundred Euro is still a hundred and fifty Euro.

Still, what is spring for if not for fantasising about the kind of life where one can afford the kind of summery footwear that would make Hermes say “Wait, why do I need those, I have real wings?” — and here’s hoping at least one of you wins the lottery between now and the onset of really hot weather, so you can take us up on our recommendations.

    I can’t believe these actually exist! Gladiator sandals have been a “thing’ for awhile now, but these are way more legit… look at Hermes wings! If Ancient Greek Sandals get popular then I am totally down to purchase a pair myself. It’s time to make toga parties just a little classier.
