About Us

Miista is a London based footwear/accessories designer house, founded in 2010, with the intention to experiment with shapes and materials without sacrificing quality, wearability or price, looking to perfect the shoemaking craft, while pushing creativity.  

Although we have expanded a lot since 2010, having opened our first 3 physical stores within the last two years – London, Paris and Barcelona - growth has been organic and we’re still an independently owned company, with a small, passionate team of 26 people - but the core of our success are our craftswo/men in Alicante, Spain; home to a highly skilled shoemaking and accessories community that has been upholding tradition since the 19th century.  

At Miista we understand that the success of our brand is due to the contribution made by our dedicated team, both at our Head Office, and Stores, but also at the factory level. Miista was founded in 2010 by Laura Villasenin, and remains an independent company.
