Description

In Greek mythology, Erato (Ancient Greek: Ἐρατώ) is one of the Greek Muses. The name would mean “desired” or “lovely”, if derived from the same root as Eros, as Apollonius of Rhodes playfully suggested in the invocation to Erato that begins Book III of his Argonautica.

Erato is the Muse of love poetry. In the Orphic hymn to the Muses, it is Erato who charms the sight. Since the Renaissance she has mostly been shown with a wreath of myrtle and roses, holding a lyre, or a small kithara, a musical instrument often associated with Apollo. In Simon Vouet’s representations, two turtle-doves are eating seeds at her feet. Other representations may show her holding a golden arrow, reminding one of the “eros”, the feeling that she inspires in everybody, and at times she is accompanied by the god Eros, holding a torch.

These sandals are very comfortable and perfect for everyday wear. They are handmade to order in Greece with high quality genuine leather by local craftsmen using traditional techniques. Natural leather may vary from light beige to light brown and it depends on the particular hide.

The tan colour leather gets darker when exposed to the sunlight, ageing gracefully and classically.

Wearing leather sandals in wet weather conditions is not recommended.

They fit true to size and come in full sizes only. If in-between sizes, we recommend sizing up.

They come with leather lining and insole and with a high resistant rubber anti-slippery outsole.

Heel height 1.5 cms – 0.6 Inches (approx.)
