New Australian shoe and accessories brand Izoa has a familiar designer on board: Nikki Hager, the founder of defunct brand PeepToe Shoes is the label’s creative designer.
PeepToe collapsed in early 2014 reportedly owing over $A1,000,000 and it remains to be seen whether Izoa can make a success of business.
One concern we raised about PeepToe was whether $200 was too much to pay for a pair of mass-produced, Chinese-made shoes. Izoa’s heels are around that price-point too (we couldn’t find a mention of where they’re made but China is a fair bet).
On the other hand, the good news is that some of the first range do really stand out and “pop” (PeepToe became a bit boring in the end). If Izoa can get Australian women obsessed about a locally designed shoe brand (remember the queues at the PeepToe sales back in the day?) then it’ll be on a winner.
More pictures of the funky lime green range designed by Nikki Hager for Izoa’s first season are below. The full selection can be found on the brand’s website at izoa.com.au.
