Why is Chie Mihara a shoe cult favourite? “The best shoes are the ones that you completely wear out as opposed to the pairs that destroy your feet. Some time ago we discovered that even the sexiest heels can be comfortable and that a shoe’s sensuality has no relation to the hectic schedule of the woman wearing it. Nobody needs another pair of pumps just for walking. A shoe is a fantastic platform for making dreams come true, being happy and feeling beautiful.”
Born to Japanese parents and raised in bohemian Porto Alegre, Brazil, Chie Mihara studied fashion in Japan, specialized in accessories at New York’s prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology, and even worked in an orthopedic shoe store where she learned how to pamper and respect feet. She now lives, designs and manufactures footwear in Elda, Spain.
Megan owns over 15 pairs of Chie’s and walked over 10K one day in London last year in a new pair of 60mm hidden platforms without so much as a blister. Ladies’ footwear is designed and made with thought, love and creativity in Elda, Spain.
