Staavias – a footwear brand to specialise in beautifully handcrafted footwear for women, like Gustavia herself, who struggled their entire lives to find shoes to fit their large, wide feet. Not just any shoes, comfortable, stylish and did I mention comfortable?!
Staavias is an online store, giving our customers the freedom to shop from the comfort of their home, any day, any time. Staavias opened in Jan 2016.
Gustavia Lui, 28, Owner of Staavias Shoes started a new online shoe store selling fashionable high heels and sandals for women with size 10 to 14 feet.
She was never able to fit into the beautiful shoes she admired with her size 11 feet and could only wear thongs. She often had to resort to wearing men’s shoes so she decided things needed to change and flew to New York to learn how to make shoes from scratch.
She travelled to China to secure supplies and view factories, and also met with a London-based designer for her first collection.
Staavias shoes have been sold to customers in New Zealand, Australia and the United States and has been growing at rapid rate since.
