Are you an SSL that lives in or are planning to visit the motherland? Well, be sure to keep tabs on these retailers and brands just in case you’re in need of some shoe therapy. Personally, I plan on doing some traveling to the continent of Africa within the upcoming months, so I definitely want to know my shoe shopping options, in case something goes wrong within my travel plans. Hey, you never know when you’ll need to buy your next pair.
- Donna (South Africa)
This plus size fashion boutique was brought to my attention by an SSL follower. Unfortunately, I could not find the exact size ranges that they carry for their shoes from their online catalog.
- Foot Paradise Ltd. (Nigeria)
I found this Lagos gem on Instagram. Check out their site to browse their selection of conservative to uber trendy footwear. Unfortunately, I don’t think the site is suited to buy online. So, if you live in the area, check it out and share your experience in the comments.
- Krizamba (Nigeria)
This Nigerian brand in Gra Ikeja, Lagos carries US sizes 10-13 for a limited heel styles but with a lot more color variations.

- Zando (South Africa)
This South African store has a great variety of shoes up to size US 12. After size 12, your options do get a bit scarce.
9. KWAME BAAH (Ghana)
This is a really cool brand that is based in the U.S. However, the founder is Ghanaian and has the shoes made in his Ghanaian hometown. The shoes have leather insoles that mold to your feet over time. The leathers are sourced in the U.S. and Italy. Also, “each sole is handcrafted from recycled tire to support our environment”. How cool is that?
