Sacred to the Aboriginal people of Australia, the Ayers Rock (also known as Uluru) is an "island mountain" - an isolated remnant of the now disappeared prehistoric mountain range.
Home to refreshing springs, waterholes, and caves with ancient wall paintings, the Ayers Rock is notable for its ability to change colours at different times of the day,
especially a glowing red at dawn and sunset.
Inspired by the spiritual presence of the Ayers Rock, John brings another wonder from his heart right to your feet. The Ayers is an eloquent mid-heeled pump with two adjustable ankle straps designed on a vintage Fox & Fluevog hand carved
wooden last, that includes a soft pointed toe with a curvy toe spring, and an unfinished raw leather wrapped 2.5" heel on a leather sole. Handmade in a Peruvian factory that has a
reputation for outstanding quality and craftsmanship, the Ayers features dry, dusty Argentinian leathers with ornate loop-de-loop stitching, and will replenish your inner spirit.

Such pretty purple shoes, so glad I didn't miss out, got the second to last pair in 7.5. Wore them all day with no pain or rubbing, even the ankle straps were comfy. My true size of 7.5 fit perfectly.

So comfortable in purple, I bought olive
Three weeks ago, I bought these lovely shoes in purple. I wore them to work and people raved about my feet. But these pretty things are oh, so comfortable. I work in an office but I have to walk lots to client appointments. I was so happy with them that I phoned the Gastown store tonight and yes, they have them in olive in my size. Just in time for fall. I got the last pair. For professional women, these babies rock.

BEST... HEELS..... EVER!!!!!!
I am not one to exaggerate.... so when I say that these are the best heels ever - I REALLY REALLY MEAN IT! I have a narrow foot - so they fit me like a glove with the strap! The heel is sexy but not too high - so wearing them for a day straight is not a problem. I got the olive ones - they can be dressed up or down, depending on what you wear with them. WONDERFUL SHOES! Now I am debating getting them in either purple or black...... hmmmmm.... ,->

Straight out of a fairy tale
Seriously, these shoes are excellent. They look even better on feet. The pinkey lavender color is not at all what I usually go for, but somehow it's such a good color that it transcends my usual aversion. I wear these with the aquas and greens in my wardrobe and I feel like a garden. The spiraly embroidery makes them feel so whimsical and fun... and holy moly, the comfort! So much comfort! Fits true to size for me, a little teeny bit of tightness across the top, but it's already loosening up after wearing them twice.
These are just perfection in every way. DO IT, you won't be sorry!

Cross the straps
I am thrilled with the first heels I've bought in a decade.
My first prerequisite to buying anything, is that it be made by people happy with their work and working conditions. The young sales girl helping me was quite taken with that notion and started trying to look up other shoe companies' policies on the computer... Somehow we both assumed by how this shoe made me smile (and the price) that the people who actually made it were happy.
The heel height is perfect, though I would dearly love a genuine stacked leather heel - does Fluevog make a shoe with one?
I discovered quickly that if I cross the straps the fit is much more comfortable and works well for a smaller ankle.
I was surprised too, that a 7 1/2 fit me well and an 8 was too big. I've been wearing an 8 in Xtratufs for years.
Thank you all Fluevog people for my new shoes.

I discovered Fluevogs two days ago while preparing to do some shopping in Toronto. I fell in love with the story, the craftsmanship, and the hope that a heel could be cute but comfy.
This shoe. THIS SHOE. I walked into the Toronto store just off a flight from London (UK) and, with my puffaluffagus feet, asked to see a few things. Jean Paul began the waterfall of shoes and sizes, and this one - not my first choice, but definitely the best - slid on in my "natural" size and made me want to cry it was so cute. I have never bought a heel with an ankle wrap - I'm sure it's a style no-no for a girl with huge ankles - but the reality is that this makes me look demure and cute and rocks a pair of jeans when not paired with a skirt. Did I mention that I got them in a dusty pink that made me swoon? Yep. I swooned. Can't wait to wear these this spring.

i am a big fan of buying my vogs on sale - i like going into a store and saying "bring me anything in a 9.5 on sale!" it's the only way to do it as a student. these babies were an entirely different story.
i went into the boston store with my boyfriend and two other friends, where rachel (for the second time) bombarded us with boxes and boxes of fabulous shoes that she thought we would like. i saw these on my way in and thought, gosh, how beautiful, and low and behold rachel brought them to me, in olive green, before i could even mention that maybe i'd like to try them. it was shoe fate. i truly could not bear the thought of waiting for these to go on sale, i needed them immediately!
they fit like a glove in my normal 9.5, and rachel even punched a few more holes for me in the straps (i have pretty skinny feet/ankles)....these just look really elegant and classy on. i can't say enough amazing things about these shoes! :-D
