The Luxon is a multi-strap maryjane with woven straps in the Hopeful Family: a hybrid family using the last, fit, and soles of The Hope Family, the leathers of The Truth Family, and the 2.25" leather wrapped heels of The Thanks Family. Talk about a threesome! Featuring a soft rubber sole, slightly-pebbled Portuguese leathers built on a natural footshape, The Luxon brings the beauty of a baritone into the World. F is for all things Hope.

What an absolutely scrumptious shoe! Sorry I missed the yellow, though the Cheerful makes up for that, so I got these in burgundy and they are just incredibly sturdy and comfortable and cute all at the same time. The double-elasticized straps mean that I don't have to unbuckle, just slip my foot in. Nice heel height and they'll be great with dresses and jeans. I'm always a 7.5 or 8 in Fluevogs and the Hopeful family has been perfect for me in 8 so far.

Like wearing a glove
So I visited the Montreal store today, was torn between this and another pair of shoes but these babies won me over for comfort and overall wear-ability right out of the box! I've already re-planned my clothes wearing in Montreal to accommodate my new Fluevogs! LOVE them!

My perfect shoe
About my feet: wide at the ball, high arches, medium-high instep, normal length toes. Usual Vogsize 7.5 to 8.
These shoes are perfect. Just perfect. They're even better for my feet than Operetta Malibrans (which squeezed the top of my insteps in a rather unpleasant way). I bought the black, which is a firm but not super-tough leather, and I went for my larger Vogsize in these (8).
1) Hey you! Yeah, you there! You need these shoes.
2) Dear John F and co.: you need to make these in more colours. Like the Rosy-boots blue, or a blue-purple or rub-off green or something crazy like that. So I can have them too :)

When I first saw the Burgundy Luxon shoes, I almost died; they're gorgeous and could see myself wearing them often. The price was pretty scary since the most I spent for shoes was maybe $120, so my boyfriend decided to order them for me for my birthday online. I was so excited that I'd get them in time for my birthday!
Before ordering, I read the reviews and noticed that people were saying they were slightly smaller than the average size. My normal size is 11. So I contacted Fluevog, and was recommended that I order the 11.5 size. I was almost tempted to get the 12, which was available at the time of ordering a week and half ago, but I figured, well if the 11.5 doesn't fit, we can exchange them for 12.
We ordered them online a week and half ago, and apparently they ship from individual stores that have the correct size shoes; there's no central warehouse..??? So it took forever to get here.
I got the shoes today! I was so excited! What a lovely box "Know you're weird"... So, I tried them on... and they're too tight. Sigh, ok. So, we called the store, and of course... there's no size 12 to exchange them. Even worse, there's no size 12 anywhere at all. Completely sold out.
I'm so disappointed that I don't get to wear my dream shoe. I'm even more disappointed that the company does not make it easy for online shoppers because product is not centralized. the sizes are often not true to size, and the returns process is a joke. One, if a company sizes a shoe, it should be true to size according to the general industry standards. If it says 11, it should be 11. Not a 10, not a 12. A 11. The 11.5 is actually probably a 10.5. Second, the return process is ridiculous. Since there's no central warehouse and shoes are shipped from individual stores that have availability, you have to ship back to that store, and you have to pay extra to ship back after you already paid for shipping to receive them. Once they get it, they will then CALL you for your credit card info, and then process it. Why do they need to call in? The receipt is with the box. Why is there no central warehouse? On top of that, my order took a week and half to get here. The return policy is short, 14 days... that doesn't provide enough time to get it back in the mail to return to meet the returns policy.
I will never, ever purchase Fluevog shoes again online. If I am ever lucky enough to visit a city with a store in it, MAYBE I will make a visit, but online, forget it. It's not worth the hassle, the extra amount of money, and the time. My advice, go to the store and try them on, period. If they don't fit, walk out- no hassle. For online shopping, I will stick to Zappos. Free and fast shipping, and free and hassle free returns if needed.

I have a narrow size 7.5 foot. The reviews to order one size up are correct but... even though I could tighten the buckles, the criss-cross not served by said buckles, well, buckled because I could not adjust them. Sadly these are going back. My narrow and flat feet were not a good fit for this style. Rats!

A really nice shoe! I ordered it in yellow and the color is perfect! They make my feet look so cute. I wear an 8 in the Minis and non-vogs, 8.5 in the Prepares, 9 in the Stop it and needed these in a 9. Lots of room in the toe but a little short in the length. An initial tight fit to put on as most leather shoes are, but the butter soft leather adjusted quickly for the perfect customized fit. Recommend++ @>-

Comfy, comfy, comfy
I picked these up in yellow in the SAD sale and I'm so glad I did! Comfortable all day right out of the box. The multiple straps are adorable. You will need colored tights or cute socks to best show off the straps. Look great with jeans and skirts. I'm a 10 in most Fluevogs (a 9.5 in other brands) and the 10 in the Hopeful Luxon fit me perfectly.
Like buttah. [rimshot]
I just picked up a pair of these on sale at the Boston store, and I love them so much that I just can't force myself to take them off. Seriously, I almost want to sleep in them because they're so lovely. They're comfy, beautiful, and unusual, and they make an excellent addition to my ever-growing collection. I LOVE the color. It's not quite the saturated goldenrod color shown on the site, though - it's more of a mustard yellow. They look outstanding with dark tights!
As far as sizes go, they're very much the same as my usual size in Fluevogs. I also take the 9.5 in Lovers, Sugars, and Bunnies, Flagstads and Ida Clarks. I wear a 9 in Guides and Promises, an 8.5 in Zazas, and an 8 in Parises.

Heaven on heels
I bought these shoes for work and they did not disappoint! I am a flight attendant and have no problem wearing them for 14hr days or more... These shoes are wonderful for jazzing up your basic outfits or uniform. The fit is true to size with no time needed for breaking in..I had already decided to buy these shoes before trying them on in the Granville Street store, and I'm thrilled with my purchase!

New Work Shoes!
These are my 27th pair of Fluevogs, purchased today at the Sale in Melrose. The staff there is always awesome, and they pulled down about a dozen pairs for me - I was looking for a new shoe to wear to work regularly, along with my standard go-tos: Sandras & Wearever Arigato D'orsays. I had seen these before and liked the look of them, but I was afraid the lattice work would make the tops of my feet sore. Fortunately, they are wildly comfortable. They'll be nice and secure as I run up and down the stairs at work.
I am usually a seven in Fluevogs, and these are no exception. I may have to pick up the yellow ones after Xmas, too!
