The Ngozi Collection
There is just something about the way heels elevate your look and they way you feel. They change a walk to a strut and standing to commanding. Growing up, my mom always wore heels, even her house slippers had a heel and I looked up in awe at this beautiful woman who did it all - in style. When I ‘grew up’ and started my career I was excited to wear heels to work. But alas that dream was short lived because I was on my feet all day and they hurt. But that changed when I designed my first pump and could finally wear heels to work. My mom said they were beautiful but a bit casual for a woman who adorned herself with jewelry even just to stay home. And 5 years after launching my first pump - I have designed a collection for my mom - that’s comfortable enough to wear grocery shopping but show-stopping enough for the most notable celebrations. Nigerians love to dress up and want to shine so bright at parties that others should wear sunglasses. And my Nigerian mom is amongst the shining stars when entering any room. I designed these shoes with that in mind - for my mom - Ngozi ❤️

A NOTE FROM DR. LIZA ABOUT THE DR LIZA PUMP
These are the first style of dr LIZA shoes that I designed and they hold a special place in my heart. Since the first generation of the dr LIZA pump in 2017 I have improved them by building heel liners right into the shoe, raising the vamp so that they don’t cut into your toes, widening the forefoot area to give you more room and using a leathers with slightly more give for a more comfortable fit. This shoe gets my vote for most improved. They were great before but are even better now. We all need a great pump in our lives and these are them. They’ll make you look great and you’ll feel amazing too.
From a clinical perspective if you have very severe bunions please ask us to custom stretch them for you so that you’ll have a better fit. The rocker sole and shock absorbing platform makes these shoes suitable for plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonosis. If you have high arches you may find these more comfortable than the lower heeled sneaker pumps. These also help correct for overpronation when you’re walking and take pressure off of your back. If you have moderate to severe arthritis in your foot I don’t recommend these pumps and would suggest the sneaker pumps or booties instead.
