The lace-up, open-toed Angelou bootie is John's tribute to author, poet, and Civil Rights activist Maya Angelou, who, in true Fluevogian spirit, walked unwaveringly forward in the woman's liberation movement. The Angelou bootie uses beautiful soft matte leathers with crosshatched piping and whipstitching, giving it a pretty, but confident look. Even after summer's warmth has faded, the open-toed Angelou begs to be worn with tights and socks in the cooler autumn months. Built upon a 1" platform with a rubber truth sole, stacked leather wedge, a 4 " leather wrapped circular heel and tunite cap, The Angelou encourages you to challenge society's expectations, and liberate your heart unflinchingly. Write down your dreams.

These make me smile!
I have envied my sister's Fluevogs and she surprised me with a gift certificate in time for the sale. I debated between these and the Michaelas for my first purchase and the Boston store was so helpful talking about sizes and styles and tracking these down. So for my first purchase....I bought both pairs! Waited anxiously for their arrival worried they would not fit, but TADA...perfect fit, no break in needed on either pair. My day today started with a dead car so I put these on to make me feel all better ! You just can't be that upset when your feet look this fab! My teen son even said, "cool shoes!" I am hooked!

Surprisingly comfortable for a platform!
These make me so tall, yet they're super-comfortable! I even wore them out for a night of dancing and felt pretty stable--provided I didn't do any crazy moves :) These can be subtle if worn under long pants or attention-grabbing if worn with a short skirt. They're very versatile and I'm glad I picked them up at the sale price, which is amazing.

Love love thses shoes
I bought them last summer and realized I didn't put on a review of them. I have 3 pairs , these are my favorite!!! I have had so many compliments on these ones, now 3 of my friends here have bought fluevogs, maybe you can open a store here??? :))) True to size, you can adjust with the tie ups to a thin or wide foot. Comfortable and easy to walk in all day long!!!!

my favorites of this family
The Angelous are the first pair of high heels that I can wear all day. The corset lacing and the heel construction give a lot of support and get a lot of attention.
I'm a 7 1/2 and bought the 7 for a perfect fit. I love these so much that I bought both colors.
