“Miista” pr. /m.ï.s-ta/ is a playful bending of conventions and alludes to the art of mixing elements to form intriguing new configurations.
Laura Villasenin wanted to create a label that could bend the constraints of contemporary shoe design without sacrificing quality of wearability. And so Miista was born, in a vibrant and bustling Hackney.
We’ve been designing shoes in our East London studio since 2011.
Well constructed footwear requires planning, diligence and precision. We work closely with our shoemakers in Alicante, Spain; home to a highly skilled shoemaking community that has been upholding tradition since the 19th century.
These are their stories.
