After a successful year, Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi celebrates her shoe brand, Gbémisókè Shoes’ first anniversary. The women’s shoe line which was created for ladies with big feet will also be launching its website and a television commercial.
Gbémisókè, which consists of flats, pumps, and mules, is made especially for women who wear size 41 and up. The
host of Beat FM’s Drive Time Show will be celebrating this milestone with a few invited guests later this week.
Speaking on the reason behind creating Gbémisókè shoes, Gbemi commented,
‘For women like me, who wear size 41 and above, it is very difficult to find nice shoes. Stores rarely have big sizes available and when they do, they sell out quickly. After suffering from this issue for such a long time, I decided to proffer a solution for myself and other women with big feet, thus Gbémisókè Shoes was born”.
She continues; “We have started making shoes for everyone but those are in smaller quantities and are limited edition”
The eponymous brand has been worn by notable celebrities including; Makida Moka, Wunmi Obe, Buki Sawyer, Taje Prest, Sharon Ojong, Latasha Ngwube, Estanola Oyelese and Delphine Okobah.
