Since launch, Ancient Greek Sandals has experienced steady growth each season, and is now selling in over 350 points of sale, in more than 55 countries.

While studying in the USA, Nikolas noticed several of his female friends would return from holidays in Greece with two things; olive oil and traditional Greek leather sandals. His idea was to take the Greek sandal one finds on the Greek islands, elevate the design and quality and sell them to consumers outside of Greece
