MiGA has started out of pure passion from its founder – Mitali Gandhi’s – love for shoes and animals. Leaving her comfort zone of a secure job in financial services, she wanted to make a known home-grown, animal-friendly shoe brand, which could be identified as one from India. At the same time, she associated with the daily problems of women having to spend long hours feeling uncomfortable in heels, at work or at social functions. In an effort to derive quantifiable results to design shoes which women would love to wear repeatedly, she joined extensive shoe designing courses and schools, for 12 months, where she learnt the art and science behind making heels.
After months of iterations of applying these scientific concepts in her workshop, she manufactured her first line of comfortable heels in 2017. The shoes, besides being uniquely comfortable and aesthetically appealing, do not use any products derived or tested on animals. From there on, started the story of making different styles of shoes, to bring a much needed relief into women’s walking, running and dancing everyday.
At MiGa, we believe that style and comfort are not mutually exclusive. We make Animal friendly shoes as we truly believe all life is precious. The science behind every MiGa pair is the heel height, the angle of the cushion and the shape of the shoes, making it extremely comfortable in terms of experience of wearing it for long hours. All our shoes come with additional cushioning to provide that extra comfort. At MiGa we have closely studied what it takes to keep feet healthy and happy, Hence all our shoes have a heel height of 3” or less. Our shoes are handcrafted in India. We are into two lines of footwear the festive line that includes hand embroidered footwear using a range of fabrics and embellishments and the leisure line - a daily wear collection merging color ways in a single shoe.
