Ancient combat sports themed athletic apparel and casual wear. All designs handcrafted.
The original heel hook T-shirt shows a leglock specialist submitting his opponent with a heel hook. The handcrafted design is paired with the ancient Greek phrase "τον προσπαλαιοντα τη πτερνη tra", which translates to "one who wrestles with the heel". The phrase is one of the earliest mentions of the athletes using the heel hook in ancient literature.
