Parthenope is one of the Sirens in Greek mythology. Her name means “Maiden-voiced”. According to Greek legend, Parthenope was the daughter of the god Achelous and the Muse Terpsichore. She cast herself into the sea and drowned when her songs failed to entice Odysseus. Her body washed ashore at Naples, on the island of Megaride, where the Castel dell’Ovo is now located. When people from the city of Cumae settled there, they named their city Parthenope in her honour.
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.
