LLXLLQ announced the launch of a new brand and online store, http://www.llxllq.com, which offers fashionable, Italian-crafted women’s shoes sized 10-12.

Founder and designer Lucia Lucka Klansek, who wears size 12 shoes, had struggled her whole life to find both beautiful and comfortable shoes in her size. Discovering that it was nearly impossible to find a wide selection of fashionable footwear in one place, she was inspired to travel to Italy—a country well known for high-quality and well-designed shoes—to find a solution to her problem and help other women in her situation.

“As a businesswoman, I saw an unmet need and decided to find a solution to make the most out of this opportunity. I have always known that the best shoes are made in Italy, and so I knew it was important to start at the source of quality,” Klansek says. She met with some of the best craftsmen of hand-made shoes in Italy and convinced them to make models and lasts for bigger shoes, and venture into something new for them as well. The result is a summer 2012 collection consisting of stylish, comfortable and well-constructed flats, heels, and sandals; totaling 48 unique pairs of shoes size 10-12, for all occasions.

“I negotiated and secured the best prices for these top quality shoes,” Klansek explains, “because it is my goal to make them widely available to women all over the world.”

Lucia Lucka Klansek comes from a family of entrepreneurs and has started other successful companies in the beverage industry, such as Nektar and E4B, both in the U.S. and her home country, Slovenia. The E4B product, featured in Forbes magazine, the New York Times, and on ABC’s “Good Morning America” show, was presented as one of the superfoods of the future. LLXLLQ is her newest venture, comes from her heart and stands for the following:
