There are two reasons why we feel grateful to have found Helsinki-based shoe designer, Minna Parikka: first, she is a massive shoe lover, just like us; and second, she is one of the few female shoe designers in an industry mainly dominated by men. After all, this is the woman that has made our shoe fantasies come alive — a feat no male designer could have possibly achieved.
Parikka started her own eponymous line of shoes in 2006 for the sole purpose of making footwear less serious and more fun.
Ever since, her label has become the go-to cult brand for whimsical, bold and surrealist kicks. Some of her most ardent followers include celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Fergie, Palamo Faith and Beth Ditto.
