Miista was launched in 2010 with the intention to play with shapes and materials without sacrificing quality, wearability or price - and they have been designing shoes from their East London studio ever since. Miista unites the nostalgia of designer Laura Villasenin's Spanish heritage with a modernist female sentiment, translating cinematic, surreal, and retrospective inspirations into timeless styles rendered in Italian leathers and unexpected materials. It’s a pastiche of all Laura's childhood memories of a beautiful farm on the Atlantic coast of Galicia, dropped like a stranger into a contemporary East London setting.
The core of Miista's vision and success are our craftswo/men in Alicante, Spain; home to a highly skilled shoemaking community that has been upholding tradition since the 19th century. E8 by Miista is the sister line to London based handcrafted, fashion footwear brand Miista. Miista brings together opposites in deliberate juxtapose; embodying an elegant balance in the unusual through an informed marriage of design, material and craft.
