Garden of Enjoyment |
The Garden of Enjoyment Family has a rocker vibe and the sexiness of its predecessor, The Body Parts, and infuses even a bit more of a bad girl influence. The Rita uses a soft matte Portuguese leather, with a slight surface texture, as well as gorgeous faux-snake leather with a bit of shine. The uppers feature a striking rivet detail that lines the vamp panel with a 4" painted glossy platform and a rubber sole for traction. Get Going!

Naughty and Nice!
I wandered into the Queen W shop on a summer trip to Toronto, with the intention of buying a pair of Desmonds and ended up purchasing these in both cobalt and python. The first night I wore these, I was able to dance the night away without a wince... Unheard for me in any other 'new shoe'. These are my go to dress up shoe, for any occasion. A rocking combination of naughty and nice! Thx.

Will John bring these back?
I tried these on at the Queen St. store in Toronto and was surprised both at how small they fit and at how comfortable they were. In Fluevog sandals I am a 9 and a 10.5 fit me perfectly. The heel didn't feel as high as it looked. They are sex personified and I do hope that John will bring them back next summer. Please?!

Best Fluevogs Ever
I bought the cobalt blue Rita from the Gastown location on the first day they were unpacked. The style of this shoe is so yet so comfortable! From the beautiful heel shape & strap that wraps around it to the rivets to the incredible colour & texture, what's there not to love? When the snakeskin went on sale, I just had to get them too. Rita, you're my wingwoman of style.

I'm in looooove
As soon as I saw these blue studded rock-a-liscious shoes, I was in love. Then they went on sale, and bam! They had to be mine! I didn't realize that the platform, heel and pearlized inner lining (the pointy toe part) were actually blue as well - what a pleasant surprise and a nice change from black.
Amazingly comfortable - it feels like the last is flexible rather than rigid, and the rubber soles feel nice and secure for walking. Of course, the adjustable straps are amazing for getting just the right fit. I risked a size 9 (I can wear anywhere from an 8.5 to a 10 in Fluevogs, but I'm usually a 9 or 9.5), and they were exactly right. I have narrow feet so have to do the straps all the way up, but excellent adjustibility (totally a word) for any foot width.

My new "Bluevogs"
I just got these babies from my hubby for my birthday and I can't take them off. They are so funky, rocker, glam! Comfortable too.. as always. The snap studs are beautiful against the very saturated cobalt blue leather. The heel is perfect.. thick, but not too thick and the darker blue patent is to die for! and the platform is there, but not too high to dominating. The pointed toe puts these beauties right over the edge. I think John has outdone himself on this one. I love you...:)

This is my first Fluevog pair of shoes, and it won't be my last! I saw them in the window in blue and had to try them. I have a wide foot so I was amazed that these fit perfectly, even with the pointy toe. They are high, but the platform in the front makes them wearable. The leather is so soft, doesn't pinch anywhere. They feel like they were made for my feet, they are that comfortable. I wore them out and was standing in them for several hours and they were comfortable. I have never been this crazy about a pair of shoes!

A Vogger for life!
This shoe is the most gorgeous shoe I have ever had on my foot. I loved it the moment it hit the website. Had to have the blue and the color is magnificent. John just opened his store in Minneapolis Nov. 2012. I got my first pair of Fleuvogs for Christmas and I now own 21 pairs. I am hooked for life. The compliments I get never stop. This shoe is very, very comfortable, gorgeous on the foot and runs completely true to size. This shoe is my fav but then, my fav is always the latest one I buy. Rita is truly exceptional, tho. It is a work of art. Thank you, John, for making me look gorgeous, once again!

So, I own over 30 pairs now, so I've stopped counting. But these babies are some of my favorite. I've always loved this sort of style shoe in the past, but they frontispiece ALWAYS moves around on my food and gives me blisters. The design on these is nothing short of brilliant. That strap that goes around the back of the heel? When you buckle it and ease it down, it ensures that the frontispiece lays perfetly against the front of your foot. So comfy, incredibly stable, and they look amazing. Both were gorgeous, but I went with the grey because they look like nothing I've ever seen at Fluevog. My usual size 7 fit perfect. I cant even tell you how much I love these. John, you've done it again (and again and again)!
