When I first heard about this brand, I didn't take the name seriously. I just thought the magazine had just written that name down as a description, not as the name of a company. But, lo and behold, it is truly a sandal company called Ancient Greek Sandals. It is so authentic that every sandal is handmade in Greece and takes about twenty days for you to receive them once your order is placed. Now what better place to get your spring/summer gladiator sandals from than from the real Greeks! I am totally loving these Artemis beauties.
