Femine and Demure
Mitju is a shoe shop that I feel has more of the girly or Korean-style designs that would appeal to more feminine girls.
The designs are mostly cute and demure in pastel colours and adorned with intricacies such as ribbons and pearls. They always look very well-made and neat and this is what I like about them. The designs are usually clean and in simple colours, but of course there will be some that are different and a little bit more quirky.
The service is average, as I did not especially feel any genuine warmth from the service staff, particularly when I decided not to buy any of the shoes in the end. However, it was probably a rare once-off occasion as I have heard many good reviews about this shop from my friends in terms of the service so I was just “lucky” to catch them on one of their bad days!
The price range is quite reasonable. However I personally feel it slightly pricey for the simpler designs and this refers to most of the designs! With little adornment, I am less willing to pay a high price for the shoes.
They also carry bags as well, and these are also in very feminine designs, but they are multifunctional and can be carried for school or work.

Cool shoes with cool designs.
I visited Mitju's warehouse sale a few months ago at SCAPE. Being a first-timer to Mitju's range of shoes, I was curious to have a look at the brand that my friends were gushing about.
To be honest, I have to say that I liked what I saw. I find their line of shoes to be quite fashion savvy. I remember browsing through lots of shoes which really looked appealing to me. But I was kinda disappointed when they didn't have my size in many of the shoes I really wanted, and that was a huge letdown.
Probably I'll have better luck next time, and I do know I'll be going back to Mitju again!
Beautiful shoes at reasonable prices
Mitju has to be my number 1 station for shoes. (ION branch)
The price range is similar to Mimosa and Mondo, style-wise its something like Charles and Keith but instead of mainly 6' inch heels they have quite a good selection if 5' and 4' too
Whether its black covered shoes, casual flats or classy heels most of the time i'll find what i want in Mitju. Moreover the shoes are of good quality! The shoes i get from Mitju can last me longer than the shoes i purchase from other places and it's comfortable too.
However its pretty annoying that they always run out of size 7, its either i have to give up on it or purchase at other outlets (if its available). Don't expect friendly and helpful staff though, the service is awful.
Mitju is a very eye-pleasing place.
Everything here looks pretty. The shoes, the bags, they are all eye candies to be reckoned with. I've never liked shopping here because they never ever stock my size (I'm a size 33) but my mum is in love with this place so I'm here all the time. It's exquisite torture to look at pretty things and know that none of them came in my ridiculous size.
The bags here are not too bad but maybe a little too mature for me. They are desirables to my mum of course, she would live here if she could. The prices here are very reasonable and I'm quite surprised they haven't came up with a membership programme yet.
A nice, quaint place.
Service could be better
Recently, I've visited Mitju at ION Orchard. After some months since the last visit to Mitju, I was pretty pleased with the new designs showcased at the store. Some catches my eye, some was just ordinary. Unlike some shoe retail shops like Charles & Keith, they made an effort to upgrade themselves, aesthetic wise.
However, I was not pleased with the service. I felt inferior as I enter the place with the store attendant 'scanning' my friend and myself from head to toe. Yes we might dress and look average (in other words 'can't afford') but you have to respect ALL customers and not just the elites (or just look like one). One of the distinct bad customer service was when one of the attendant wanted to pass by me (the lane was narrow), she simply stand there expecting me to make way for her. No 'Excuse me'. No 'Sorry'.
comfortable and cheap
Mitju is a shop that sells bags, accessories and affordable, stylish and comfortable shoes. The shop that I went was at bugis which was my sister whom brought me there. The services in Mitju, I find it quite slow when there are a lot of customers. I want to test the flats so I asked the salesperson to give me the flat that fit my size but they make me wait like 30 minutes after twice reminder.
I bought one flats which was very lasting. I bought it for around 3 years yet until now it still haven’t spoilt. The pattern of the flats which I bought may seem simple but it is really very comfortable. There is also one bag that caught my eyes but we have bought quite a lot of shoe and clothing on that day so we decided to go back here again after a few days. After a few days, I went back there again but the salesperson told me that the bag was already sold out.
cute pumps for you?
If I were to rank Mitju alongside with some of our more popular local shoe retailers, Mitju would be somewhere between Trendy Zone/Mondo and Charles & Keith/Pretty Fit.
I used to associate Mitju with Mondo for they sell rather similar style of shoes. I do not have very good impression of places like Trendy Zone and Mondo. Yes, I do agree that they sell cute pumps at really affordable place with good comfort level. However, in terms of durability, definitely not. They have yet to pass the test. If you notice, the soles of the pumps at Trendy Zone and Mondo are just a piece of cardboard! However, I would say Mitju is better in the quality of their shoes. At the very least, I feel that there are cushion on the soles. And durability wise, commendable for the price that we pay.
Personally, I would only recommend Mitju for their pumps and wedges. Their price ranges from $29.90 to $40 odd. As for their heels, I’ve tried a few times in their shop. I feel that the heels are not stable and will cause discomfort on the ankles and knees if worn long. Currently, Mitju is having this promotion in July – buy the second pair at half price!
What you pay is what you get
Everyone knows Mitju for one thing: cheap shoes. But they may also remember it for another thing: poor quality. All the Mitju shoes in my household (three of us ladies) have looked awful after about three months of regular wear. To be fair, all of us have only bought flimsier, flat-soled shoes, so the problem could be limited to this type of shoes. Still, it is a shame that their lifespan is so short, because many of Mitju’s designs are cute and appealing.
Given the ridiculously low prices that their shoes go for, it is hard to blame Mitju for the poor quality. Nevertheless, I hope those who buy their footwear there know what they are in for!
Affordable and trendy footwear
Mitju is a must-visit if you are looking for affordable, trendy yet good quality footwear. The branch at Ion is very spacious and has a comfortable soft couch for you to sit and try the shoes on. The range of designs are great. From simple everyday flats to killer heels and japanese style wedges, you might find yourself buying more than what you have intended to. The designs of the shoes are unique and not that common as well. Besides shoes, they do have some accessories for sale as well.
The quality of the shoes are worthy of its price tag. They are not filmsy nor poorly-cut. They are comfortable and lasting. Although it might give you blisters at first (even expensive shoes out there give blisters). you will get used to the shoe in no time! They could probably improve on their service attitude. When I was there, they did not even smile at me once throughout my entire stay in the store. The least they could do was to be friendly. I felt like I was being annoying to ask to try the different shoes. I like the shoes, but not the service. If you don't mind below-average service, then head down to your nearest Mitju store to check out the flats this weekend!
Just teenagers' style!
Mitju has always been my favourite place to shop shoes! The styles are feminine and trendy, very up to date. Normally, I buy flats with price ranging from 10-15 dollars. Its reasonable prices and cuteness are the huge factors why I have been going back again and again.
The shoes are super comfortable! I was in love of the softness of the flats! The sole of the flats are not easily spoilt, even when the flats have been worn almost everyday in sun or rain. The shoes are generally very durable, and the kind of styles are long-lasting, such that one does not need to keep buying new shoes!
The only thing that I do not like much is the shop attendant's attitude. There is only 1 or 2 attendants, and both of them are usually not so friendly. However, when asked questions regarding size or colors, they usually answer, just without much friendliness.
Cheap and Trendy!
Mitju is my sister’s favourite shoe shop! Being a person with sweaty, stinky feet, she cannot afford to purchase expensive shoes that start stinking up in a month and throwing them away. Thus, Mitju is her life- saver. Mitju is a Japanese shoe brand which sells extremely affordable shoes from prices ranging from $15-$30. Pocket friendly for the poor student she was 5 years ago. Even though she is working now, she still shops at Mitju as they have very trendy and comfortable designs. Thus, she always returns to buy the same pair of shoes when it starts to stink. One word of caution though, you get what you pay for. The shoes last a maximum of 6 months.
My sister usually has to spend an additional $3 to get the cobbler to thicken the soles of the shoes. One good thing for sure now, no more stinky shoes at home! Surprisingly, she can always get the same designs even after 6 months. They have nice designs for loafers, slippers, flats and pumps. My sister complained that their heels and wedges are pretty uncomfortable. My gf loves to shop there too. Especially when there is a sale. Imagine already cheap sales on sale!!!
