"Owambe" Party Shoes Sets With Matching Bags

This hub was inspired by every shoe lover woman out there who would like to know where to buy those pretty looking ladies' party shoes with chic matching bags.

Owambe Party Shoes for Ladies

Every woman I know love shoes. Well, maybe not 'every' woman, but most. So, it can be a bit of a hassle trying to find that perfect shoe for that special occasion, especially when you wear a size 9 or above. What's even harder is finding the right bag or purse to match your shoe, if you do find one.

The problem most women face in shopping for shoes and bag is where to look. So, I've compiled a list of specialty store that carries lots of 'party shoe', otherwise known as the 'Owambe' shoe.

'Owambe' is a term commonly used for parties celebrated by Nigerians to mark a special occasion, or a milestone achievement, such as, graduation, wedding, birthday, ordination, and even naming ceremonies. At such occasions, it is very common to see ladies wearing shoes with matching bags, a fashion practice that is unsettling for some.

Take the Shoe Challenge

High and Low-Ends Price of Authentic Italian Party Shoes

Owambe party shoes with matching bags are high society style shoes that are almost always accessorized with crystals or simple ornaments. They range in price that can cost between $100 and $500 for those on the low-ends, and between $500 and $1500 for the high-ends. Price is usually for both the shoes and matching bags. It is not uncommon to see 'Owambe' party shoes that are priced over $3000.

Shoes in this category are only marketed through selected fashion stores and distributors as they fall into the category of rare, authentic, and sometimes, very expensive ladies shoes that are difficult to find. Here, I have put together a list of some of these specialized brick and mortar, and online stores that carry authentic, ladies party shoes from famous Italian and Spanish Shoe Designers, such as,

  • Sacco
  • Runo Giordano
  • Giorgio Pantini
  • Rebecca Berti
  • Louis David
  • Marta Fabi
  • Rosario Altamura
  • Antonio Bellis
  • Roberta Fabiani
  • Marta Toscano, and Others

Taking The Stress Out of Your Online Shopping For The Right Party Shoes

What prompted me to write this hub was the difficulty I encountered, when I started out searching for a particular type Sacco party shoe. I was surprised to discover how difficult it was to find anything close at any of the popular online shoe stores.

I started out my search using everyday keywords used to search for ladies shoes but got nothing. It took doing dozens of searches specific to name brands, designer, style, colors, and prices to get the desired result.

I know first-hand how stressful it can be to set out to shop online for a product for which you have no idea how to access the marketers. so, I do hope you find this hub useful in helping you streamline your choice of online stores that carries the products mentioned here. The list keeps growing, and I hope to add more in the future.

How nice to see matching shoes and handbags. I use to shop for matching shoes and handbags but got away from that. It really looks very nice to dress matching. I think I will start putting this style suggestion back into my wardrobe. Great pictures.

How long does it take for orders to get to new York. I have a part at the end of the month. How can I access all the shoes to make a choice. ?

@Temi Benjamin - Think of your mom's shoes and bags collection as an investment. It may just be very valuable tomorrow.

Thanks Temi for your comment.

Temi Benjamin from Europe. on May 31, 2013:

I couldn't stop smiling while reading this hub! Why? My mom's got these in all shades and colors and I wonder when she'll stop acquiring them. Great hub! Made me start to miss the otherwise weekly Owambe's back home.

Comfort Babatola (author) from Bonaire, GA, USA on May 31, 2013:

@tillsontitan - Yes, the shoes really are gorgeous! Thank you for your kind comment and vote. I appreciate you. :)

Mary Craig from New York on May 31, 2013:

Years ago I had many, many pairs of shoes and a matching purse for each pair. That was I am retired, have trouble with my feet and I'm just glad if I can get a nice pair of shoes to go out in.

I will admit, these shoes are gorgeous and if the occasion ever arose, I would head back to this hub to look for shoes!

Voted up, very useful, and interesting.

Comfort Babatola (author) from Bonaire, GA, USA on May 23, 2013:

@George Greene Jr. - You are absolutely right. Getting the right shoe and the bag to match can be a hassle in itself. Thanks again.

George Greene Jr. from California PA on May 23, 2013:

Its not much the high price tag(although i realize the shoes you have listed are high end and come with an already matching purse) Its when you find a bargain deal on some great shoes that finally fit and then try to find that purse that will go with it.

BTW.. Love the pink matching purse you have in the article! That is so pretty and my style! I like to keep it more simple in the shoe as those are usually the ones that come more my size.

Comfort Babatola (author) from Bonaire, GA, USA on May 23, 2013:

@George Greene Jr. - That's usually the case with most women. When you're a size 10, 11, 12 or even 13, it's hard to find the right dressy/party shoe. The shoes linked on this hub tends to run in those hard to find sizes. Thus, the high price tag.

Thanks for reading and commenting. :)

George Greene Jr. from California PA on May 23, 2013:

@ ceres Schwarz... I had a hard time finding matching shoes and bags! Especially since its hard to find the shoes in my size(11w)!

Comfort Babatola (author) from Bonaire, GA, USA on May 22, 2013:

@MsDora - I'm sure you can still fit into one of those! They really are nice shoes, and sometimes come in low heels. As always, thank you MsDora, :)

Comfort Babatola (author) from Bonaire, GA, USA on May 22, 2013:

@Ceres Schwarz - Yes, shoes with matching bags can be a little pricey, but one can always get a set in the league of say, $100 or less, depending on style and material.

Thanks for your comment. Very well appreciated.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on May 22, 2013:

Thanks for introducing us to Owambe style shoes and where to get them. Women my daughter's age may be interested in obtaining them. Me, I can only admire them.

Ceres Schwarz on May 22, 2013:

These are nice shoes. And it's pretty cool to see shoes with matching handbags. There are some people who want to make sure that the clothes they're wearing all match together with their shoes and accessories. Some of these shoes look to be really expensive though. It would be better if they were more affordable as some people prefer to go with cheaper shoes.

Comfort Babatola (author) from Bonaire, GA, USA on May 21, 2013:

@billybuc - Didn't expect to see you here, but I so appreciate your support Bill. Thanks friend. :)

Comfort Babatola (author) from Bonaire, GA, USA on May 21, 2013:

@VictoriaSheffield - They are nice, but over the top, I'll say. But then, there are those who can't get enough of these shoes.

Thanks for stopping by. Appreciate it.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on May 21, 2013:

No way...not for me. :) I just stopped by to give you a little support, but there is very little I can say that would be intelligent regarding women's shoes.

Author Victoria Sheffield from Georgia on May 21, 2013:

Nice shoes!!
