#5 – Fever Shoes: Owner Natischa Harvey studied political science at Clark Atlanta University, but it was while working at Bakers that she developed her love for shoes. By 2004, she had enough knowledge and experience to open her own shoe stores. Her shoes are sold in stores throughout the U.S., Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and Dominican Republic.
Note: If you are wondering why Pastry Shoes by Angela and Vanessa Simmons isn’t on the list, it’s because they sold the company back in 2011 for a reported profit of $15 million dollars. The company still exists at www.lovepastry.com, but is no longer Black-owned.
