We are Maria Zoi and Eftihia Dimakea, the designers of the Once Upon a Shoe!
Our brand started its journey on December of 2015, with the common vision of creating shoes that combine quality, femininity and elegance. We studied shoe design and manufacturing at a greek private school. We mostly started out of personal need, rather than a business move. Our company grew fast and the love of people led to the opening of our first atelier, where we design our creations up until this day, but we also schedule appointments for bridal pieces.
Very soon we opened our first shop at Kolonaki. We also own an eshop and send shoes all over Greece, as well as internationally.
Our shoes are made of leather, they are handcrafted and locally made. Our designs are made with the finest materials and from the best and most experienced craftsmen of Greece.
As designers we are mainly inspired by fairytales and romanticism.
Just like every fairytale starts with Once upon a time, so ours was born with Once upon a shoe! We are waiting for you to come to our magical world, so as to design your own fairytale slippers and take your fairytale steps in Wonderland with Alice's shoes, the glass slippers that made Cinderella dance at the king's ball and Dorothy's ruby slippers at the Wizard of Oz!
