jackie christieHollywood—She’s sassy, outspoken and stylish by her own admission.

Jackie Christie, fashion designer, author and reality TV star, is bringing her “fearless” style to a new footwear collection at Shiekh Shoes, the urban contemporary retailer this spring.

A star of VH1’s “Basketball Wives LA,” Christie says she created her women’s shoe line, featuring stiletto heels, casual shoes and trendy handbags, to “fierce fashionistas a runway look of style and comfort” in an affordable price range, $50 to $100 at retail.

“I get messages all the time from fans around the world saying they love my fearless, sexy and unique style, but don’t want to spend their entire savings on a pair of shoes or handbag,” said Christie. “I’m very honored to have this amazing opportunity to launch a line consisting of shoes and handbags at very affordable prices at a retailer with many stores in the communities where my fans go to school, work and live. I feel the partnership is perfect.”

Shiekh Shoes, which operates nearly 140 stores in 10 states, will launch the Jackie Christie Signature collection in stores starting in late spring.

The wife of retired NBA star Doug Christie, Jackie Christie is also a philanthropist and best-selling author of six books. She, along with her cohorts on the reality series, will be appearing in season 3 of “Basketball Wives LA” beginning Feb. 17.
