How It Began
Misfit Panda is a PETA-Approved Vegan footwear & accessories brand for women that was founded by Juveca Panda in January 2017. Following the brands mantra of, “Be You. Be True. Be Misfit.” – Misfit Panda is inspired by the bold and confident women that are breaking barriers every day. The brand started with a line of distinctive footwear that combined classic styles with playful prints, colours, embroidery and laser-cut motifs, all the while maintaining a high level of comfort. In this day and age when we can have it all, why should any woman have to deal with a bad shoe day? This is why fit, comfort and design are all equally important at Misfit Panda - All our shoes have thicker insole padding built in for added ease of wear. We believe that fabulous shoes can be made comfortable and vice versa.
At the heart of each season’s collection is a story inspired by art, architecture, landscapes and cultures that have inspired our Creative Director along her travels at home in India and aboard. Every material is handpicked from the markets by our team with a lot of thought to reflect this inspiration - This not only lends the products an air of exclusivity at pocket friendly price points, but that added personal touch too. And most importantly we're very proud that all our products are handmade with love in India. So when you shop from us, not only are you supporting a local brand, you are supporting the local businesses we work with.
We hope you enjoy wearing our shoes, just as much as we enjoyed making them for you. Happy shopping and welcome to the Misfit Tribe!
