About Us: Heritage

The Efthymis Fokas Shoes brand represents the services once offered by the traditional shoemaker and tries to bring them up to date. We are reviving a family tradition of more than 100 years.We are creating unique handmade shoes for both men and women using almost exclusively Greek products. Our vision is to update the customized product once offered by a shoemaker and deliver it to our customers via modern market canals of communication.
 
The original history of our brand lays back to the early decades of the 20th century. Efthymis Fokas was a famed shoemaker working on the island of Kefallonia. His son Nikos moved to Athens inheriting not only his small company but his great talent. Subsequently Efthymis's son, Nikos, followed into the family tradition and ran the family's shoe factory until 1985. In 2013 Efthymis Fokas which is the grandson of the original Efthymis Fokas perceived the idea of reconstructing the company and giving it a whole new touch and experience for the customer.
