Artemis Men's Cary Velvet Smoking Shoes
From our friends at Artemis Design Co. This unique style combines our elegant smoking shoe for men with luxurious Velvet. Perfect for black tie, weddings, and other formal occasions, these shoes have found a special place in the Artemis family.
Upper in 100% silk velvet, hand-loomed by a women's collective in Uzbekistan. Leather sole with 3/4 inch heel. Handmade in Istanbul in a small, family-owned workshop, by cobblers whose families have practiced the craft for generations.
In these Artemis Loafers, we recommend selecting the European equivalent of the smallest US size you wear. For example, if you are usually a US 10, but sometimes wear a 9.5, order a 42 in the Kilim Loafer. In the open-back Kilim Slipper, order one size larger than that (a 43 for the previous example).

We believe that beautiful vintage Kilim textiles, made largely by women artists, deserve to be repurposed and preserved for admiration and enjoyment. Artemis makes beautiful things in a slow and careful way, using a treasured team of artisan suppliers and cobblers to ensure that their chain of production is hands-on, handmade, and brings as much pride as the products themselves.
