Greek authorities are ordering retailers to stop selling the shoes in Greece and Italy after a fire and explosions at a warehouse.
The Greek and Italian governments issued an emergency declaration in the wake of the fire and explosion in Alverstones factory in Athens, and a national alert was issued.
According to a statement issued by the Greek government, the fire occurred at an “industrial site” where Alver Stone, a luxury shoe brand, is based.
The fire also damaged a warehouse belonging to the Greek subsidiary of the German company.
Fire officials have said they have no information on whether the fire was connected to the production of the shoes.
Alverstone said on Tuesday that it is “shocked and devastated” by the fire.
The company said it will “take necessary measures” to stop the sale of the boots and will “fully cooperate” with Greek authorities.
Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras told reporters in Athens that he is working to provide assistance to AlverStone, but did not elaborate.
Almerstone also said it is working with Greek and Turkish authorities to identify the cause of the blaze.
Greek news website Kathimerini reported that the fire broke out on Tuesday evening in the warehouse at a factory that processes shoe materials for Alver stones, and that authorities were called to the site in the early hours of Wednesday.
Greek police have launched an investigation into the fire, which has not yet been officially confirmed.
