Misfit Panda

Misfit Panda is a women’s footwear brand that was launched in January 2017. Inspired by the bold and confident women that are breaking barriers every day, the brand designs distinctive footwear that endeavor’s to standout while maintaining a high level of comfort. It’s collection of vegan leather loafers, mules and block heels combine classic styles with catchy embroidered slogans such “Boss Lady” (one of the brand’s bestsellers) evoke the attitude of the new-age woman. Following the brands mantra of, “Be You. Be True. Be Misfit” – Misfit Panda has recently started collaborating with Indian artists to design unique, limited edition hand painted canvas shoes.

This lends the products not only an air of exclusivity at pocket friendly price points, but that added personal touch too.
