Artimen derived its name from its mission of creating ‘Art for Men.’ Founded in May 2015, the brand allows the customers to get a feel of being a designer of their own shoes. The customer makes its selections in terms of the leather, shade, lining, sole and even the mould to design their own pair. We are currently eyeing the hand-stitched slippers from the latest collection.
