Iapetos (Iapetus) was one of the elder Titanes (Titans), sons of Ouranos (Uranus, Heaven) and Gaia (Gaea, Earth). Led by Kronos (Cronus), Iapetos and his brothers ambushed their father as he descended to lie with Mother Earth. Krios (Crios), Koios (Coeus), Hyperion and Iapetos (Iapetus) were posted at the four corners of the world where they seized hold of the Sky-God and held him fast, while Kronos castrated him with a sickle. The Titanes were later deposed by Zeus and cast into the pit of Tartaros (Tartarus). According to Pindar and Aeschylus (in his lost play Prometheus Unbound) the Titanes were eventually released from the pit through the clemency of Zeus.
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.)
