Notes

From our friends at Artemis Design Co.--Our Kilim Smoking Shoes have a menswear-inspired shape rooted in classic formal wear, featuring a higher profile and slightly wider fit. Our Kilim shoes are handmade from vintage, hand-sourced Turkish carpets, which means that no two pairs will ever be alike. The Kilim Smoking Shoes pictured here are the actual pair that you will receive..

Details

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. Kilims are a style of textile traditionally crafted on Turkey's Anatolian peninsula using wool, cotton, or silk. Kilims are flat-woven, featuring a thin, tight weave that make them a perfect textile for crafting shoes. Every symbol, color, and pattern woven into the Kilim has meaning and represents a hope, a dream, or a story from the life of the weaver.

Size & Fit

Our Women's Smoking Shoes run true to size. We only make full sizes, so if you wear a half size, order the next whole size down (for example, a US 8.5 should order a 38). Expect them to feel quite snug at first, but stretch to a cushy custom fit after time and wear. Our Kilim Smoking Shoes tend to fit best on medium to wide feet, but do stretch beautifully width-wise to accommodate most feet-- much like a fine leather shoe.
