Since 2015 Charix has been crafting exceptionally high quality, colorful, unisex leather shoes in Istanbul, Turkey. Each Turkish shoe is handcrafted by master shoemakers with traditional heritage techniques that have been passed down for generations. Each pair of Charix are equally stylish as they are durable and comfortable. Charix improved upon the centuries-old design of the traditional charik shoe (it’s name in Turkish) by adding a durable, long lasting outsole and a memory foam insole that’s sewn between two pieces of leather. The result is a supportive loafer that is effortlessly timeless, goes with every outfit and exudes a minimalist excellence. Each slow made pair of Charix is accented by the finest top grain leathers and lined calf leather that are both a byproduct of the meat industry and colored with all natural dyes. With a contoured heel, ergonomic instep, soft fine thread stitching, and a non-skid rubber sole, each pair of Charix is made for the everyday and can be worn everyday. Charix was founded by an Istanbul native living in the United States with a family history of three generations of traditional Turkish shoe making. Each master artisan shoemaker is paid living wages (more than double the standard rate in Turkey), and are provided transportation, meals and healthcare. With gorgeous colors like camel, black, bordeaux, hunter green, and leopard there’s a Charix for every wardrobe.
