Kitschy Kitschy Boom Boom |
[Brown & Navy]
Viv is kickin' it old school. Her design is straight out of the Fluevog history books and her style is as eternal as a red lip. The Kitschy Kitschy Boom Boom Family exhumes classic style and Viv's curves and funky, swirly detail epitomizes Victorian styling and modern eccentricity. She has the rubber soles of The Hope Family, aniline leather of The Mini Family, and a 2" Wearever heel. She's the perfect addition to The KKBB Family and any Fluevoger's wardrobe.

These heels are a touch short in the toe box, but true to size in the width. A great shoe!

I bought these beauties in a 7 (but that was me being strongheaded and wanting the shoes NOW as opposed to waiting a bit). I tried them at home and although they fit (my usual size is a 7.5 and my feet are narrow)I had to admit that I needed my normal size. So, I exchanged them for a 7.5 which I am wearing at home as I type, and I wish I had listened to the other reviewers who went up half a size. The 7.5 fit me well but my right foot appears to be a tiny bit larger than the left and it feels tight. I hope the leather will stretch in time as I don't want to exchange them again (no fluevog store in my city). If you have wide feet make sure to go up in size, like I said, my feet are very narrow and they feel a bit constricted in these, maybe you have better chance with the Liz which were huge width-wise on my feet. The insole feels cushiony and the arch support is quite nice.
That being said, I fell in love with the Vivs the moment I saw them on the website. I bought the black and white with thin pink piping colourway. They look amazing, make the foot and legs look great, very retro chic. Unlike some of my other Fluevogs, I could see myself wearing them with pants, although my preference would be dresses and skirts, all the better to show the beautiful swirls on the side and back.

I got these beauties from Modcloth.com, and I am so in love. I have been stalking Viv since she showed up on the Fluevog site, and I finally took the plunge and brought her home. I got the brown ones, and they are so beautiful. As expected, they are comfy, and I expect loads of compliments. A note about sizing: I normally wear a 6.5 (slightly wide feet with high arches), and the 7.5 is what fits my feet best. These beauties are my new favorite Fluevogs (which is saying a lot because I have many Fluevogs, like double digits number of Fluevogs).

Viv was an immediate "Must buy!", the brown and blue are just about the cutest Fluevogs I've seen in years, love the retro look of them. I already have 2 pairs of Liz so went with the same size in Viv, 8. They fit perfectly and very comfortably with tights, but if I wanted to wear a thicker sock I think an 8.5 would be necessary. I'm a 7.5 to 8 in my other Fluevogs.

The perfect shoe
As soon as I saw the add contest for these I was dying for them to come to stores. It was love at first sight with the black and white ones. When I went to try them on I also feel in love with the blue and brown, but that is another story. I stuck with the black and white and have worn them several times. I always get compliments and they make my feet happy!!! I wear anywhere from a 6-7 depending on the Vog, with these I got the 7 and they are just perfect!

Bought them in both colors -- they are amazing!
Made the trek to Montreal and was looking for lace-ups with some support, reasonable heel and lots of style. These are it!!! Coincidentally, I was wearing a hot pink top and black yoga pants, so these actually worked with my outfit! Bought them in the blue and brown as well for jeans. Amazing fit and support -- felt as if they were custom-made. And made my 9 VERY WIDE feet look teeny weeny! I danced in them in the store!

You have to see these in person! The pictures don't do it justice. Very classic and amazing!. In the malibrans and luxons, the 7 fits me like a glove. I tried the 7's in these and they were a smidge to tight so I went up to 7 1/2. In the store they seemed perfect size. I'm thinking now I should have stuck with the 7's as I got blisters right away. However the comments and looks I got at these babies sure made up for that blister ;) Andrea was amazing in the shop! She's my new go to vog girl!!

Go try them on!
I tried on the Liz and didn't like the fit, and have heard lots of other complaints from people about it as well. So when the darling Viv came out, I hesitated for a while. Trying it on in store seemed mandatory, rather than attempting to size it online. I went downtown today and was floored at the sizing! My non-Vog size is an 8M in just about everything. My Mini and Operetta size is an 8. In these shoes I had to go to a 9.5! They are extremely small, and it is too bad that girls with larger size feet probably won't be able to wear them. They are adorable and I hope to get a lot of fun wear out of them this winter.

Yet another new fave ...
Oh yeah. I got the brown & blue and they are classic Fluevog - one of his funkiest in years, with a touch of Victoriana. They run a full size small, so online buyers be careful - even half a size up and my toe hits the end. The Viv being tied-up shoelace shoes, though, seem to hold my foot further back. They make my foot look smaller than the Kitschy Liz does, even though they are on the identical last. Fantastic colour combo with a touch of aqua in the detailing. New fave!

These are awesome
Each time I buy a pair of Fluevogs, the newest pair become my new favorite, and that's definitely the case here. Both colorways are so awesome in person I had to go back a second time before committing to the brown/blue.
As the Beca mentioned, these run way small. I take a 6 in every other Fluevog I own, regardless of the last, but in this shoe I took a 7 (which is my shoe size outside of Fluevog-land).
If your toe hits the front of the Liz's (mine does and I've been told that happens with some other folks too) the Viv holds your foot back better so you don't feel your toes touching the shoe.
Fluevogs are amazing and legitimately comfy, the Viv's are no different. Buy these.

2 for 2!
Two shoes from the new kitschy kitschy boom boom family and two new shoes for the collection. Definitely run very short in the toes but great for wider feet-- I usually wear a 9-9.5, and got a 10 in the Viv (9.5 in the Liz). Super comfy for all-day wearing and killer color. Rachel at the Boston store was a joy to see, as usual.
