POLYPHE was the Okeanid-nymph mother of the goddess Hippeia Athena by Poseidon. “Hippeia Athena” was probably the island-goddess Rhode who was often identified with Athena.
Polyphe’s name means “Of Much Thought” from the Greek word polyphê. It is quite similar to Metis “Of Good Counsel”, Athena’s usual mother.
Polyphe resembles several other water-nymph described as the mother of Athena:–the Okeanis Metis by Zeus (parents of the Olympian Athena), Halia by Poseidon (parents of the Rhodian Athena), and Tritonis by Poseidon or Triton (parents of the Libyan Athena).
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.)
