The Simple But Statement-Making Sandals Every Stylish Mother Should Own


The magic of a good pair of sandals doesn’t lie in all the bells and whistles, but in the sheer simplicity of good leather and good design. How many times have you bought a pair of fancy flats only to come back to your tried and tested basics each season - the ones that seem to go with everything, look better with age and make very outfit look that little bit better…

Ancient Greek Sandals are all that and more. Designer Christina Martini has a knack for tapping into traditional shoemaking techniques from her native Greece combined with modern design, with influence from her background as a footwear designer for the likes of Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton. Simple slides, cute buckle detailing (all with their signature wing-motif), interesting textures (this season it’s all about velvet, pearls and studs) and good quality, chemical-free leather make for a collection of sandals that are all you’ll want to wear once the weather warms up. Here are our favourites to buy now and enjoy all season with everything from linen dresses to denim and beyond. Opa!
