MIA SHOES (originally known as Mia Clogs) was founded in 1976 at the height of the disco craze. Redesigning the traditional Swedish clog for the hipster crowd, founder and CEO, Richard Strauss turned his company into the #1 Swedish clog resource to the United States. Over the years MIA has grown into a fashion powerhouse focusing on superior material quality and red-hot styling in women's footwear.
