Size 12 Anyone? Check out L’Aviye.


Anyone who knows me well, knows my love for shoes. You’ll also know my angst with having big feet and seeing shoes that don’t come in my size. I wear a US size 12 ladies shoe.  When I meet people who wear the same size we often share stories and tips of where to find the latest styles.  I remember connecting with Actor/Comedian Leslie Jones on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival about being a tall girl with big feet (She’s also a size 12).

Well, I recently discovered a brand while on Instagram that carries a variety of African inspired styles up to a ladies size 12 and wanted to share.

Willa Peep Toe Pumps, £100.

L’Aviye is an online retailer of African-inspired accessories and shoes. Formerly known as Accessories by Abiye,  they’ve been featured in Elle UK and Company Magazine UK. They create fashions using African traditional patterns while incorporating the styles of contemporary trends. With mid to lower price points it means they’re affordable for most shoppers.  The brand ships worldwide and I was happy to see most styles go up to size 12 US.
