Chie Mihara launched her shoe line in order to offer women something different - footwear designed by a woman for women, with equal priority placed on design and comfort. She believes women should have shoes that match their needs. They want to look feminine, beautiful, attractive but without giving up comfort. Drawing on vintage influences, she takes details from the past and reworks them to reflect contemporary aesthetics. Add to this meticulous, artisanal craftsmanship; Chie's shoes are manufactured entirely by hand.
