Originally made from hollowed logs, or later from salvaged barrels, the Conga is played by tapping fingers or palms and are an essential instrument in Rumba, Salsa, and Reggae. The Fluevog Conga was designed to imitate the ease and comfort of a classic Cuban chelsea boot. John produced the hip and casual Conga with an inside zip, a soft rubber sole and stacked tunite heel. The two colourways in The Conga feature soft Portuguese leathers, non-functioning eyelets, and an elastic vamp for the comfiest fit ever! Let the Dance Begin.

The Conga fits narrower than the other shoes in this family.

I love these f'vogs!! They fit like a glove and are extremely comfortable! The leather is a lot more smooth looking in person than on the pictures, but the colour is pretty much the same. For sizing, I am generally between a 7-7.5, but I got these in a 7.5 and am glad I did. They run slightly narrow, so sizing up rather than down was better for me, and esp. to wear with socks. I absolutely love these!!! Can't go wrong!

I was sorry I missed the Bolero, then became infatuated with Vera Ellen too late to get my size, so when I decided I needed a flat boot with a flexible heel for travelling the Conga seemed the perfect choice; sturdy yet fairly light-weight, easy to get on with just a zipper, cute and comfy straight away--the leather hugs my feet nicely. The deep reddish brown goes great with everything and as for sizing, I'm generally a 7.5 to 8 in shoes and as usual with boots got them in an 8 to wear with medium socks. If you're looking for a simple boot that is both stylish and comfortable, this is a good choice.

I ordered these shoes online and took a chance that they would be fabolous..And of course I was completly satisfied. These shoes are just perfect for work as well as weekends. The leather is soft and fits like a glove. They do run narrow so order your true size.
Fluevog has yet to disappoint me. Another perfect purchase ,-)

Wore these the first time out on a trip to Boston. I was a little nervous about wearing them because I was planning on doing some serious walking. I had always read reviews about how people wear their Vogs the first time with very little break in time. I always thought, whatever! These boots made a believer out of me! They are awesome, yes they run a little narrow, but they really do stretch. I love, love these boots. :-)

Tried 'em on at the Soho store and wore them out of the store! They are soft, soft, soft on the inside, but as advertised do run narrow ... great little boot for bopping around town.
