Polina launched her footwear label with the aim to create footwear she always wanted to wear and could never find. “I embarked on a mission to create shoes that were beautifully crafted, elegant yet with a touch of fun. I knew I wanted them to be showstoppers, so people would notice them straight away.”
Polina’s inspirations come from her passion for travelling, art, exploring flee market and general life curiosity.
All Polina Magiy’s shoes are beautifully handcrafted in an artisan factory in Italy, where Polina herself handpicks only the best quality leathers, textile fixtures materials. Each shoe is carefully assembled by highly qualified workers in an artisan workshop, where Polina travels to on a regular basis.
