…Los Angeles (September 10th, 2012) – ShoeDazzle is pleased to announce actress and television star NeNe Leakes as the newest member of its “Celebrity Shoe Design Program for Charity.”
Leakes designed a black, lace cut out, caged bootie with gold detailing named “Nethia,” a shortened version of her full name, Linnethia. Helping stylish women transition from summer’s bright pops to fall’s neutral palette, “Nethia” will be available for purchase exclusively at ShoeDazzle.com beginning September 10th for $39.95. ShoeDazzle will donate 100% of profits from the sales to benefit the Saving Our Daughters charity.
“We are so thrilled that NeNe Leakes has selected the charity Saving Our Daughters whose mission is to empower teen women.

Nene created a style that looks high-fashion, yet is affordable,” says Bill Strauss, Chief Executive Officer, ShoeDazzle.
“I’m honored to be partnered with ShoeDazzle on my Nethia design. When I knew that I would be designing a fall shoe, I knew that I wanted it to be a bootie and that the design of the shoe to have skin showing through to make it sexy for fall,” said Leakes at the “Unveiling of Nethia” launch party in Atlanta on August 25th.
Leakes hopes her career as a designer is just beginning, and has even hinted at the possibility of naming future designs after her children and grandchildren. “For my next shoe, why not name it Bri after my granddaughter?
