Founded in East London in 2010 by designer Laura Villasenin, MIISTA is the embodiment of form and function through Villasenin’s studied lens of art and craftsmanship. Inspired by her time as a product designer on British high-street and her commitment to making products with enduring quality, Villasenin creates footwear that acts as the starting point for style with acute attention to her native Spanish artisanship. Derived from the idea of mixing design elements and philosophies, MIISTA offers footwear that is never ubiquitous, but instead begs you to take a second look. Square toe boxes, stretch leather, and stacked heels work with luxury materials and elevated design to create pieces that are both bold and elegant. Taking reference from female musicians and artists from past decades, MIISTA maintains a unique positioning through nostalgia and storytelling, while Villasenin’s commitment to ethical production and her community of makers in Alicante, Spain firmly establishes the brand’s lasting appeal.
