Nemesis Sandals were named after the ancient Greek goddess Nemesis. It is believed that Zeus was romantically pursuing Nemesis who kept evading him in the guise of different animals, until one day he deceived her disguised as a swan when she had become a wild goose. According to others, their lovechild was Helen of Troy, who was given to her mother Lida as the egg born of Nemesis.
As far as our logo is concerned, the Greek sphinx is portrayed in a circle surrounded by spirals. The Sphinx was a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a woman. She guarded the entrance to the ancient city of Thebes and would ask passers-by to solve a puzzle in order to gain entrance. Whoever failed to answer it was killed. The only person able to solve the riddle was Oedipus.
The spiral, which is found on our buckle, is a complex yet strong symbol seen in many ancient civilizations around the world particularly in Greek one where it is highlighted in various monuments, sculptures and works of art. The shape of the spiral symbolizes infinity as the circle can continue turning throughout time and is seen all over the universe, in the shells of snails, tornadoes, galaxies and so on.
The given names to each of our designs, were taken from the Greek language, which are used internationally even today.
