This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Kallístratos (Καλλίστρατος)”, composed of two elements: “kalós (καλός)” (beautiful, lovely, virtuous, noble) plus “stratós (στρᾰτός)” (army, military force). In turn the name means “beautiful army, beauty-army”. 1) Callistratus was an Alexandrian grammarian, flourished at the beginning of the 2nd century BC. 2) Callistratus was a Greek sophist and rhetorician. He wrote Ekphraseis (Statuarum descriptiones), descriptions of fourteen works of art in stone or brass by distinguished artists. 3) Callistratus was a Roman jurist, who, as appears from passages in Justinian’s Digest, wrote at least as late as the reign (198–211 AD) of Septimius Severus and Caracalla

The tan colour leather gets darker when exposed to the sunlight, ageing gracefully and classically.
Wearing leather sandals in wet weather conditions is not recommended.
They fit true to size and come in full sizes only. If in-between sizes, we recommend sizing up.
