Pagonis have been creating high quality handmade leather Greek sandals for the past 80 years. The Pagonis family is evolving the fine craftsmanship of manufacturing the best ancient Greek Sandals, in a conscious and sustainable way.
The Pagonis family are the storytellers of a 3 generation-owned successful business. The journey of Pagonis family began on the island of Naxos in 1940, the shoemaking art was already running in the blood of the family since the previous century.
One of a kind: Their love of the shoemaking art and designing ancient Greek sandals can be described with just one word: Meraki, a Greek word used to describe someones passion and absolute devotion of his/her work. The person leaves a piece of his/her soul and creativity into the work. Each handmade pair reflects the hard work and the love put into the creative process. The family make raw materials come to life, in their hands leather transforms into a product that never goes out of style.
Their ancient Greek sandals are classic and timeless and the quality is guaranteed. You can choose from a huge selection of sandals (it really is sandal heaven) or you can have a pair custom made by Kostas, the second generation of the Pagonis family. Be part of the Pagonis family history and stop by their shop and workshop when you are in Naxos. It’s a very special experience to see the process of this fine art, meet the family and staff who are so wonderful, plus you will leave with a treasured piece of Naxos. If you’re not visiting Naxos anytime soon, you order them online.
