The story behind the impressive sandals
Originally, Cleopatra of Egypt was the real source of inspiration for modern gladiator shoes. More specifically, Stavros Melissinos designed his first ancient Greek sandal. He himself visited the Archaeological Museum of Athens very often for further inspiration. That is, from there he copied the designs of the ancient shoes, either from statues or from representations of vases and thus he came to the form of his final design.
He was the first to actually bring into fashion the ancient Greek sandals in modern times. Its sales were great as young girls mainly from America placed orders for this particular design.
