This shoe was originally designed (in off white) by Artemis Founder & Designer Milicent, for her own wedding day. She was looking for something for her fall wedding that would feel luxurious and special, but comfortable enough to dance all night in. She loved wearing these shoes at the wedding, but even more afterwards with jeans, patterned pants, and skirts.
· Hand-Loomed Silk Velvet Upper
· Leather Sole With Rubber Heel
· Handmade in Turkey
If you generally wear a half size, we suggest ordering the next whole size up in this open-back style: for example, a US 8.5 should order a 39. The exterior of our Velvet Slipper is handmade from 100% silk velvet, which was hand-loomed in Uzbekistan by a women’s collective. The interior is lined with supple leather and suede, and the sole is leather.
