Painstaking engineering

Our Micro-adjustment feature has been meticulously engineered to deliver on the Bella Modi promise of all-day comfort. The patent-pending connection system allows our uppers to be placed anywhere on the base. This creates an infinite number of design possibilities and incremental adjustments for the perfect fit. No other footwear product offers you this kind of freedom and flexibility. Plus, you can feel good about helping the earth (and your budget) by consuming fewer resources.

Our mission

Bella Modi is committed to evolving the way shoes are designed, worn and sold. No matter your background, age or income, our mission is to provide the tools our customers need to design their perfect look, create their perfect fit and discover their inner fabulous, both personally and professionally.

Big girls don't cry. They invent.

Crying over a broken shoe strap might sound extreme, but what if it’s your only pair of goes-with-everything black sandals in a nearly impossible to find size 5 ½?  The tears Kim Mitchell-Catlett spilled that day over her favorite black heels were the culmination of years of frustration with an industry that offered few options for her size and even less creative control. Enough was enough. So Kim dried her tears, broke out the modeling clay and created the first prototype of her ideal shoe.

The solution Kim conceived that day was beautifully simplistic in functionality and design yet required extreme technical precision. The engineering behind the Bella Modi Micro-adjustment feature took over five years to perfect and patent. Today that feature is the very foundation of the Bella Modi Shoe System and the innovation that sets it apart from any other shoe system on the market.

Realizing the power of this product, it’s now part of Kim’s mission to encourage others to take back control—whether taking control of their closet with their Bella Modi Shoe System or taking control of their professional life with a Bella Modi career opportunity. But most of all, it is Kim’s mission to inspire others to follow their passion wherever it takes them (comfortably shod in their Bella Modi shoes, of course).
