Hippeia or Hippea (Ancient Greek: Ἱππεία) is the name of two characters in Greek mythology.
- Hippea, daughter of Antippus. She married Elatus and bore Polyphemus, Caeneus, Ischys and Ampycus.
- Athena Hippeia (or Hippeia Athena, “Athena of Horses”), Athena as a goddess of horses. In this form, she was said to be the daughter of Poseidon and Polyphe, daughter of Oceanus. She was given her name because she was the first to use a chariot.
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.)
