So this is what true love feels like
I have had my red/black/snake pair for 2 months now. They fit like an absolute dream. Also surprisingly versatile for such an eye catching style. I've worn them for work, conferences, a wedding, and now, swing dancing. I wore them and danced the night away without any discomfort, and this is from a girl who used to live in flats. They get compliments everywhere I go (a group of women thought I was a shoe salesman). They just might be my favourite out of the 6 Fluevogs I own! Swooooooon!

Just love it!
I bought this on my recent trip to Vancouver. This is the second colour that I bought. I had already worn it since I got back to Sydney as we still have winter here. I found a handbag at Granville Island to match the shoes. Just love the combination! The Fluevologist, Thomas at the Gastown store, was very helpful and patient. You need 1/2 size up. I normally take a 7 but need 7.5 in this. Can't wait for the next colour to be out!

Like butter, only better!
I'd been stalking these beauties for months on the website, waiting for my chance to get to Portland to try them on in person. Love the combo of black and brown: don't often see that. Debated between 10 1/2 and 11 (usually a 10 in other shoes, 11 in Bellevues)...once the insole went in the 11, aaaaah! So so comfy! Wore them directly out of the store, and for the rest of the night: fit like a dream, and so gorgeous! Couldn't stop looking at my feet! The staff was great: Crystal was oh-so-patient with my debating, and trying on of many shoes. Great experience, dreamy shoes!

New Fall 2013 K2!
I fell in love at first sight with the new black/red/snake K2 in the Boston store (before they're even on the website) - just gorgeous! I usually wear a 7 in Fluevogs but Pete brought me the 7 1/2 to try and he was right, the fit is perfect and they feel so good... and look amazing! The Wonders are wonderfully comfortable, I already have the Everests and the K2s have the same balance in the heel and wiggle room for my toes even though they're delightfully pointy. True shoe love!

Very comfortable shoes!
I bought these on the Fluevog day, my 4th pair this year, and got discounted shipping, yeh! They are very comfortable as work shoes, which is matching with a black/brown tote that I have. It would be nice to have the non-slip soles padded like some other Fluevogs. I can bring to a shoe repair to add on, which is not an issue. Will consider the other colour as well. Love it!

Got these beauties in red - my first pair of Fluevogs, and definitely not my last. I have avoided heels because of their discomfort and instability, but this pair is like walking in comfy slippers. And the shape makes my feet actually look small - even in this bright colour!

My new vogs just arrived.For once, the color on the screen is pretty close to the shoe. The "purple" actually looks brown. I had planned to wear them with purple but will re-visit that idea in daylight. That being said, I have narrow feet and tried them on with thin socks because I couldn't wait to hunt around for something more appropriate. They will do fine. As other have said, I need to scuff them up.

a. ma. zing.
I needed a nice pair of dress shoes for client meetings, but I hate wearing heels in winter. These shoes are elegant, dressy, different, and hip. Quite honestly one of the most beautiful pairs of shoes I've ever owned. They fit like a glove (except, you know, for my foot).

i have these in red and purple and they are stunning. Comfy, look great with lots of different things, more than I thought when I bought them. I love the brown/black also, but you know what else would be great? Emerald green and Navy. Fit is same as my other fluevogs.
Pilgrimage to K2
I have always purchased my Vogs online, so it was with great delight that I braved bus and Skytrain from Surrey when I was there for a conference, in order to check out these babies and admire the Gastown store in the 4 hours I had before my conference schedule started! They fit like butter- beautifully soft leather, perfect fit with lots of room in the toe. I'm B width ball with a AA heel, and these are supportive and tight from toe to heel (and I didn't need to use my bunion stretcher!). The red is VERY vibrant true red, while the purple is a deep eggplant (my husband, who is red/green deficient thought they were red and brown...). Heel height is perfect for long days right out of the box. Lots of compliments, and I felt super powered as I wore them to meet a string of famous authors- like Diana Gabaldon and Jack Whyte. :-) Fair warning: the sole is slippery. I scuffed it up promptly, but have had the heel slip out on me 3 times catching on water on flat floors. These shoes were worth the 3 hour trek to/from the store in Vancouver rush hour. I expect they will become my trekking shoes on future European vacations. Love 'em!
