You guys. Ancient Greek Sandals (you know, those ones) sent me a pair of sandals. I know. I also know some of you want to learn more. Are the comfortable? Are they worth the price?

Here is what I need to tell you: They arrived to me about a month ago. I quickly tore them out of their pristine white packaging, slapped them on my feet, and wore them to the park with Henry. I then wore them into the office the next day, and the day after that. I walked to the farmer's market in them. I wore them running errands and running after a baby all up and down San Diego. I wore them down and across the Mexican border, into the Tijuana Airport, through the city streets of Puerto Vallarta, along the cobblestone and dirt roads of Sayu, horseback riding on the beach and in the jungle, back into PV/TJ and into SD. Out for margaritas. I wore them for 10 hours while I photographed a wedding at a ranch.  And (even after ALL of that) back into the office. I am seriously considering packing only these shoes for our ten day trip to the east coast that involves both city and country, work and play. (While we are on the subject, would that be insane or brilliant?)

All this is to say that:
-They have gone with every stitch of clothing I have worn in the last month, and have been appropriate in a wide variety of social settings
-They have been nothing other than 100% comfortable
-They have held up strongly to what some might consider seriously abusive wear.

In short: they are totally worth the money. Listen to your hearts, people.

Thank you Ancient Greek Sandals.

(And Aimee for taking a picture of my feets!)

  4. I only wish I had bought more of these while I was actually in Greece years ago. They are the best.

    1. Oh, and much less expensive, of course, if you're getting them from the source.

    1. If you end up walking around a lot, you might want the bensimon's. I usually get worn out even in my best shoes after a long day. That said, don't listen to me. Buy another pair of shoes here :)

  14. I spied these beauties on your blog and ordered myself a pair all the way from the UK. They are indeed awesome, but mine are a size too big. Bummer. So if you happen to know of anyone who wears a 39 and would like to snag a pair without paying for int'l shipping, I'm offering mine up! They're the same style as yours, just in a lighter "natural" color.
