Did you know that Chie Mihara was an orthopedist before actually being a designer ? Chie Mihara learned how to make amazing shoes with an attention to comfort while she was working in NYC for an orthopedic company. Her shoes are extremely comfortable… Some of our custumers buy every styles we have every season because of that ! On top of it, Chie Mihara shoes are all handmade in Spain, so the quality of the product is inimitable.
Chie Mihara launched her shoe line in Elda, Spain, in January 2002 in order to offer women something different, footwear designed by woman for women, with a priority placed on design and comfort. “we’re mothers, working women, active women!” she said, “and we should have shoes that match our needs. We want to look femenine, beautiful, attractive but without giving up comfort”. Drawing on vintage influences ranging from 1930s feminity to 1980s humor, she began taking details from the past and reworking them to reflect contemporary esthetics and modern fashion. Her distinctive footwear quickly gained a following devoted to Chie’s unique approach to comfort and style. Chie Mihara has now over 1000 clients worldwide, including luxury department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus in the U.S.A, Selfridges in England, Isetan in Japan, Le Bon Marché in Paris and Boutique David Lesage in Montréal !
