How to find the correct footwear size
1. Stand on a piece of paper and mark the distance from your longest toe to the heel end.
2. Measure the distance between these two marks to find out your foot length.
3. Repeat the same procedure also for the other foot (right and left foot are hardly ever the same in lenght. Please, always consider the longest one).
4. Don’t forget to save some additional room on the toe area.
Seistron (sistrum), a musical instrument of ancient Greece. Ancient percussion instrument, made of wood, metal, clay or acombination of all, with varied penetrating and indefinable sound that accompanied the pace in religius processions. The rattle was also known as platagi and it was the first toy given to children and newborns, since the sound it made when they shook it stopped them from crying. It was also believed that the sound of the rattle kept away the evil spirits that lay around a baby’s cradle.
