Asjha Jones is a WNBA All-Star with the Connecticut Sun women’s basketball team. And she is a member of the USA Olympic Women Basketball Team. Asjha has launched Takera Shoes, an upscale Italian made shoe collection catering to women who wear sizes 10.5 to 15. Her passion and drive to develop Takera Shoes comes from a recognized void in the market place for this exotic sizing and from the personal pains of not being able to fulfill her own shoe fetish because of limited styles and quality in her own size – 13M.
The Takera Shoes are beautifully made, sexy and comfortable with a story worthy of telling.
The collection was initially previewed at last years’ WNBA All-Star event at the Mohegan Sun and was largely appreciated by many of the league’s top players, as well as by former WNBA president Donna Orender.
Takera Shoes has been featured in both the Feb and March 2011 issues of Oprah Magazine, the May 2011 issue of Jet Magazine, the June 2011 issues of Sister 2 Sister and Essence Magazines.
Besides looking great it was important to Asjha that theTakera footwear collection also focus on comfort. So the AngelTech Micro-Trauma Comfort system was created and intergrated into the outsoles of the Takera collection.
