Big Presence | Desmond [Cuir noir]
GROUPES:   Femmes   Talon  

Le 8 novembre 1946, Viola Desmond, propriétaire d'une école et d'un salon de beauté, a été arrêtée pour s'être assise dans la section pour blancs au théâtre ségrégationniste Roseland en Nouvelle-Écosse. Viola a été sortie du théâtre avec force, passa la nuit en prison, et fut déclarée coupable d'évasion fiscale pour ne pas avoir payé la différence pour le prix du siège comparé à celui de la section de sièges du balcon pour les noirs, soit 1 sou. Viola a contesté la décision et après que la cour de la Nouvelle-Écosse ait refusé de renverser la décision et de maintenir le verdict, Viola a fermé son salon de beauté et a éventuellement quitté le Canada. La contestation courageuse de Viola a été le premier pas significatif vers l'égalisé des droits pour tous et à aider à créer le mouvement canadien des droits civiques.

Nous célébrons et honorons Viola en donnant son nom à cet escarpin saisissant et confiant. Il marchera avec vous tout au long de la journée et jusque dans la nuit. Avec une toile cirée et super saturée construite sur une semelle de cuir qui se moule au pied, l'escarpin Desmond utilise des matériaux modernes dans un style classique. John a donné à la forme de la collection Presence un bout très pointu et l'a relevée avec un talon enrobé de toile de 2.75" (7 cm) en forme de losange avec des courbes accentuées donnant à ce simple escarpin un profil très distinct. Si vous collez vos chaussures semelle à semelle et talon à talon, vous découvrirez l'empreinte laissée par le coeur de John. Present yourself well. (Présentez-vous bien).

From the fit experts:

Chad from our Vancouver (Gastown) store says:
These can fit up to a half size large but it's a beautiful shoe and a great heel height.

Lovely!

These were the fourth pair of Vogs I bought, in orange. I love the unconventional heel shape they possess; enough that I 'overlooked' the pointed toe, something I tend to avoid with my rather large feet. They're comfy (as far as I can ever be comfy in heels), stylish, and make any outfit that extra bit more daring. I'll be wearing them to an orange/royal blue wedding this summer, and hopefully they won't outshine the bride.

Finally, a Coffee family lover has another love!

I loved the Coffee family with the unhealthy unholy passion and ever since they were retired I have been a little heartbroken when visiting Fluevog.com, until now! I just got a pair of Big Presence Desmonds and I'm once again twitterpated! I can't wait for more members of the family to join :D Size 8 fits me (as do 8's in Bellevues and Coffees)

Great shoes but too small; horrible transaction

These shoes are fine, but I'll probably never be able to wear them thanks to Fluevog's sizing "experts." Based on availability, I ordered a size 9, which is a half size larger than my usual size of 8 1/2, and the order was sent to the San Francisco store for fulfillment. I then got an email from the store insisting that the size I had ordered was too big, and that the shoes ran large and I needed to go down a size. I told the person that in my experience, Fluevogs ran true to my size and that with a pointed toe shoe I was a lot more worried about having enough width in the toe box than about the shoes being too long. He INSISTED that even if I went down to an 8, the shoes would still be too long and I would have a ton of room in the back of the shoe, causing my foot to slip out. At this point, I agreed to go down to a size 8. The order was then sent to the Seattle store, which took two weeks to get my shoes to me (apparently, they could not get a shipping label to print out for my work address, even though I have things shipped here all the time, and I was not willing to waive the signature upon arrival because I have friends whose Fluevogs have gone missing when they did this.) Cut to today, when I decide to wear the shoes - they are excrutiating. Not only do my feet not fit in the toe box, causing actual pain in the front of my foot, but the shoes cut into my feet on all sides, including in the back, because the shoes are WAY TOO SHORT. I checked the size because I couldn't believe how small they were, and they are a 7 1/2 - a full size smaller than I usually wear and definitely at least a half size smaller than I agreed to. Unfortunately, I have already worn them outside and I had already deleted the correspondence with the San Francisco store, so I am assuming I have no recourse. I am livid about this transaction, both with the SF and Seattle stores, and will probably end up giving the shoes to Goodwill.

A classic!

I have the Desmond's in both bronze leather and cheeta print. I adore the shape of these shoes. The cheeta was comfortable from the get go; the bronze were tight across the top of my foot and needed some breaking in. After a night on the dance floor they feel much better. Both pairs are a bit loose in the heel even after me going down half a size from my regular Vog size but insoles help that. All in all a beautiful retro pump that will never go out of style.

Really hot pair of shoes!

The store clerk kinda talked me into the red pair. I kept them in the box for about a month, but recently took them out. Wow! They are stunning with skinny black pants or pencil skirt. I love how the tip of the shoe points upward - a small thing but a great feature. When sitting on a barstool, the view of my feet is, well, sexy! What was I waiting for?!? I agree the toe box is slightly tight, but after the second wearing, it is improving. I want the cheetah pair but they are sold out in my size - too bad!!!

Desmond [Cheetah Print] -- Runs large :(

I LOVE this shoe. They are beautiful, comfortable, an easy heel height, and this print -- the Cheetah -- so perfectly me! Unfortunately, as others have mentioned, they ran large and my size, being the smallest made in this colour (?!), meant the otherwise match made in heaven could not work for me (even with insole). I had to return them. And am left envious of any who can find their fit. Dear John, PLEASE correct the sizing issues or offer the Cheetah in a 35.

Runs a bit big.

Super cute and comfortable shoes right out of the box. I am an 8.5 with semi wide feet and these are a bit big. Maybe it is the pointed toe. I will have to have an insole so they don't slip. But LOVE them still. LOVE the random look of the floral.
