Girl's (Second) Best Friend.

I like shoes.  I wouldn't say I'm that typical girl that buys tons and tons of shoes though.  I buy a nice pair and wear them to death. 

Recently, I re-discovered my love of my Chie Mihara brown and gold heels.  Tucked away in the dark corners of my closet, I brought them out to wear with a cute navy dress one night.  I bought them YEARS ago at Bloomingdale's in Chicago and have always loved them.  Great heel height, a unique neutral shoe and sooooooooo comfortable.  This pair is the most similar to the one I own...

Last week I popped into Habitat (a local shoe boutique) and discovered that they carry the entire Chie Mihara line. 

Gray, Brown, Red and Silver.  Love the chic color combo. 

Gray, camel, brown and silver.  Clearly, I love the multi-tone. 

Great basic gray shoe.

Metallic gold.  Loving the perforated detail on the top strap. 

So basic, but I love them. 

Chie is a Brazilian born designer whose goal is create shoes that are feminine, fun and truly comfortable.  That really is the best way to describe the pair of shoes I own.  She attended FIT, working first for an orthopedic shoe line (which explains the comfort factor), then moved to on to a stint with a French luxury shoe line before launching her own line 10 years ago. 

In addition to select boutiques, her shoes can also be found at Bergdorfs and Neimans and of course online at Chie Mihara.

It was REALLY hard for me to choose a handful of shoes to feature, so be sure to visit her website to check out the entire collection yourself. 

Have you heard of this line?  Do you own a pair?

  1. I used to admire them at Bloomies Chicago myself (I worked in the 900 building...dangerous in itself). I never have purchased a pair, but I love their simple, yet stylish design. Too bad now a shoe allowance is no longer in the budget!

  2. I haven't heard of this gem, but I am going to have to investigate further! The styles are super cute!!
