工艺鞋

I think this refers to some kind of decorative shoes which are actually never worn, but I'm not sure. Why would you want to buy shoes you never wear?

  • iciba and webpages for 工艺 might suggest "handcrafted" for 工艺 in the present case(although there is 手工,手艺),cf。artistic handicrafts for 工艺品 – user6065 May 23 '15 at 1:54
  • to justify preceding comment some users might argue that 工艺 refers to the manufacturing method and correspondingly"craft" may imply the concept of art,为了证明上面的评论有理,一些用户可能会认为"工艺"指的是制造方法而同样 craft,这词语很可能包含艺术的概念 – user6065 May 24 '15 at 9:00

Well, to be frank, I am afraid you can not find this "工艺鞋" directly in Chinese dictionaries, so you can take this word as a definition which is not very clearly defined. I have searched on line I can show you several pics, they are all called "工艺鞋". However, as you can see, slippers, sandal, boots.... and from manmade to machine made..... so you can imagine "工艺鞋" basically they are 'shoes'. If you wanna define it more precisely, they are artistic temperamental shoes. I hope this can help you. I am not an English native speaker, but I tried my best. cheers.
