The Laiik Winter Collection Now Available

WASHINGTON, DC – In time for the holiday gift-giving season, Laiik, luxury leather footwear, handmade responsibly in Greece, announced that its winter collection is now available.

From their classic Greek sandals to their mules, derbys and boots, Laiik only uses vegetable-tanned and chromium-free leathers on all their shoes. Among the styles available are the Agathe ballet flats, Phoebe mules and Helene lace-up derby.

Also available and perfect for the cooler months, Laiik’s first Chelsea boot, The Phryné, named after the original ‘It Girl’ of ancient Greece. “A timeless pull-on Chelsea boot with leather covered elastic and a nod to our Greek heritage at our custom pull tab,” according to the Laiik website. “With a cushioned insole and waterproof sole, this ankle boot has got you covered season to season. Style as easily with jeans or dresses.”

The Greek-American siblings behind Laiik, Nicholas, Marika, and Helene Theros, based in Washington, DC, grew up visiting their grandmother and aunts in Athens. Their father, Ambassador Patrick N. Theros, is a contributor to The National Herald.

“Raised in a foreign service family always on the move, from DC to Damascus, Greece was our constant, and we began every trip with the same ritual: buying leather sandals in Plaka,” Helene Theros told TNH in a previous interview.

As noted on the Laiik website: “Our company is driven by philotimo… which roughly means a love of honor. While the definition is not precise, it always requires that you do something because it’s right, not because it’s easy. For us, philotimo is about doing things with passion, transparency, and fairness.”

More information about Laiik is available by phone: 1-800-695-2143, email: hello@laiik.com and online: https://laiik.com/.
