The Unknown: Phocaean Spartans

A change of port means a change of style. Welcome to the city of Marius, where the strappy sandal rediscovers its roots: swap St. Tropez for Sparta. Little known by the public, these shoes are the pride and joy of Marseillaise fashion. Entirely French, 100% artisanal and in natural leather, they are made on site by family business O’Kiss. Founded in 1998, the company instantly specialised in dance shoes but it was their gladiator flats or wedges that made a break-through. It’s secret weapon? Price. Spend less than 100 euros on a pair, half the cost compared to its rivals in the peninsula.
