Sandals for Sale in Washington Greek Home Shop

April 29, 2019

With summer approaching, nothing beats walking in the heat with a pair of Greek sandals and Laiik – in Washington, D.C.’s Dupont Circle – which specializes in them, has a display that makes you feel like you’re in a summer home in Greece.

The store is a minimalist design, with lots of white like Aegean homes. “There’s this Greek minimalism that I think we all wanted to express,” Helene Theros, who co-founded the store with her brother and sister, told The Washingtonian.

“The simplicity of the design enhances the beauty of the materials and the raw ingredients (in our products. We see that when we work on our shoes, but we also want to show it in our pop-ups,” the stores, she said.

The siblings grew up buying sandals on trips to Greece and wanted the same authenticity in their own versions.
