About Our Kilim Loafers
This unique style has garnered a cult following, and its limited releases are collected by fans all over the world. See photos and read love letters from our community here. All of our Kilim shoes are handmade from vintage, hand-sourced Turkish carpets, which means that no two pairs of our Kilim shoes will ever be alike.*
Our Kilim Loafers are inspired by the classic design of a men’s smoking shoe, traditionally meant to be worn with tuxedos. Our Kilim Loafers look handsome with a tux, but go just as well with jeans, khakis, and even your favorite swim trunks.
- Handwoven Kilim carpet upper--typically wool, or a wool & silk blend.
- Leather sole with 3/4 inch heel.
- Handmade in Turkey in a small, family-owned workshop.
Size & Fit
We find that many gentlemen size down in our Kilim Loafer, and therefore 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 Artemis. The shoes should feel snug when you first wear them because they will mold to the shape of your foot, much like a fine leather shoe. Learn more about the fit of our shoes here.
