Mother to Nathan and Kris, Queen of swagger and a self-confessed shoe addict, Pokello Nare is a Zimbabwean socialite, a Businesswoman and former Big Brother Africa, The Chase, Housemate. She released her Louboutins inspired shoe line somewhere in December 2014 and is known to name every pair after her friends. Even the first few pairs she ever made were named after few of her fellow housemates.
The shoe designer named her new Pink Buttoms collection which she calls, “BARELY THERE SLIPPER”, after Cee-C, Big Brother Nigeria 2018, First Runner Up and the most controversial and most talked about housemate. The housemate took over our digital space for the right and wrong reasons. She faced lots of criticisms from most internet users but her lovers and well-wishers didn’t hesitate to show her love upon her return. People criticized Pokello for the move and felt she is using Cee-C’s name as a marketing strategy. Others think she did it solely because she is a huge fan of Cee-C, and it is evident in the pictures she posted of Cee-C while she was in the house, rooting her support for her.
The Barely there collection comes in two colors, Silver and White, namely Cee-C and Paloma respectively. “Sometimes, I want to step out without making too much effort. That’s how this design was born. A “barely there slipper” that is easy to wear, trendy and could easily be a casual or glam pair. The transparent strap gives the illusion that the foot is only held by the front strap, but because Pink Bottoms were made by an African Woman for African Women, the dimensions are made to cater for our wide feet without squeezing the toes or leaving the heels hanging”, Pokello stated in an Instagram post.
The beauty of the “Barely There’’ slipper is the fact that it is versatile to style and comes in 120mm, which is the higher heel and 100 inches, which is much more comfortable for running day-to-day errands, definitely something for everyone.
Cee-C is already a trendy chic and we believe she already has her hands on few pairs already as Pokello mentioned that, she will be sending few pairs her way. We can’t wait to see Cee-C style these pretty pairs with dresses that hug her body at the right spots.
We wish both of them the best of luck.
