Miyana was founded in 2019 by Anna Nussbaum and is a Berlin-based start-up that offers women's shoes in sizes 41-44. Our mission is to offer feminine shoes for fashion-conscious women with larger shoe sizes. Thereby we maintain high standards - both in design and quality. All shoes are designed in Berlin and made with love in Italy.
Miyana wants to help women with larger sizes to regain their sense of femininity and self-confidence and has the vision to finally replace the unhealthy and outdated beauty ideal of small feet.
The idea of founding Miyana Berlin is based on my own experience. As long as I can remember, I've tried to find feminine and fashionable shoes in my size 42/43. I remember a lot of demotivating visits to plus size shoe stores during my youth ... In the past few years, more shoe suppliers have joined, but it is still a challenge to find feminine shoes in my size. Shoes that are reasonably priced and convince with good quality.
I quickly realized that I am not the only woman with this particular problem. Many women suffer from not having the right shoes for every occasion. They therefore force themselves into too small, unhealthy shoes or buy ones that do not suit their individual style.
After my studies, I researched intensively on the shoe industry and learned a lot about how to make production sustainable and fair. It quickly became clear that it is quite possible to design and produce beautiful and especially feminine shoes in larger sizes - the idea never let me go and so I founded Miyana in 2019. Since then, my small team and I have been working with heart and soul every day to offer these women feminine shoes, which they deserve.
If you have any suggestions, I look forward to an exchange at firstname.lastname@example.org.
