The  "Katrina"  Pump

The "Katrina" Pump

Evi Simjan was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan to a Serbian mother and a Macedonian father. She knew from an early age that fashion, specifically shoes, would one day be her future. This fall, Evi launched her first collection of women's shoes. 

The essential elements of the Evi Simjan designs were custom made in Italy. Evi worked side by side with the masters to create the perfect lasts (the backbone of the shoes), heels, and soles for each design.  Together they found the right balance of sexy and sensual while adding the element of comfort. The lasts were designed to follow the natural pitch or arch of a women’s foot. Beautiful, soft, supple leathers were also instrumental in making these beautiful shoes.

Evi then took all those elements to Macedonia, to her father’s homeland. Through research and enduring passion for shoes, she found that her family’s homeland had a rich history of quality shoemaking. There, they handmade each pair of shoes: not a stitch out of place. With exceptional Italian components and fine Macedonian craftsmanship, shoemaking has evolved into the work of art that is Evi Simjan’s first collection.
