THE STORY

A tsarouhi is a type of shoe, which is typically known as part of the traditional costume worn by the Greek Parliament guards known as Evzones. 

The Tsarouhi is a lightweight leather shoe worn by villagers in mainland Greece until the 19th century. The Greeks added more significance to the design after their liberation from the Ottomans since Tsarouhi was the shoe worn by the great heroes of the 1821 Revolution such as Kolokotronis, along with the well-known white skirt “foustanela”. 

The tassel on the tip symbolises the small tree of liberty and inside the tassel there is a blade that symbolises the kick that the brave man who wears it will give to every enemy who dares hurt the little tree of liberty. Today the shoe is part of the attire of the selected guards of the President and the Presidential Mansion: Evzones.
