Meet Oyingray- The Shoe Designer


Evelyn Abimbola Oyindamola Orenuga, also known as Oyingray is a shoe/slipper designer and maker.

“I was introduced to the business by a friend who prior to that time understood and admired my passion for shoes and my notion about them. I believed and still do believe that a good shoe automatically sharpens a bad dress, which brings us to the point of knowing a good shoe can’t be over emphasised.”

Talking about her challenge, she says, “The challenges I have faced in the business, is having customers who pays late and the business is also a highly competitive one.”

She is inspired by “the Holy Spirit, my mother and family. Shoe designers like Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci and the likes also inspire me; seeing them daily and the achievement made makes me want to improve on myself daily.”

The project that made her believe in herself was making a shoe for a well renowned speaker, Mr Elisha Mamman. “I was scared but then the compliment I got motivated me. Also when I had my first interstate transaction, I wasn’t satisfied till it pulled through all thanks to God.”


Now, she is seeking “opportunities to make shoes for top people in the world.”

She also gave her opinion on youth empowerment. “Youth empowerment is a key tool for national development and help improve up the GDP of the economy of such country.”
