  • Very nice people offer some very nice sandals with different variety I bought spartan style sandals for 50 euro and was extremely satisfied. The original poet is not making them himself (as far as i saw in the store), but they look very nice and I will update if they will change color as I wear them (like the store owner said, leather shoes change color over time) They do need to clean the store a bit because it is a bit messy.. 16/4/19 Edit post: Adding one more star because the owner replied with such a professional and pleasant way! Thank you for taking the time to reply to my review! Best of luck!
