L'inspiration originale derrière la chaussure Guide vient de la fois où John se dirigeait au studio de conception Fluevog pour une réunion et fut confronté par une Guide cherchant à vendre ses biscuits. John, se sentant généreux (et affamé), décida d'acheter plusieurs boîtes de ces délicieux biscuits (on ne connaît toujours pas le chiffre exact), pour les offrir à ses employés dévoués et travaillant. Pendant sa marche, la faim le vainquit, et il a commencé à manger joyeusement. En premier, la boîte menthe et chocolat... ensuite celle des biscuits à la noix de coco... et puis une autre boîte... Par le temps où John arriva au studio, il constata qu'il avait mangé tous les biscuits. Il jeta les boîtes et détruisit toute évidence de ce qui s'appelle désormais « Le grand massacre des biscuits ». Malheureusement pour John, l'histoire fut dévoilée pendant la réunion où tous remarquent sa cravate remplie de miettes de biscuit.
Souriant en pensant à la leçon inestimable qu'il a apprise ce jour-là, John dessina une chaussure pour femme séduisante avec un cuir épais et souple d'une surface perlée, des boucles signées Fluevog, une plateforme cachée faite de liège recyclé, le tout sur une semelle tunite avec une adhérence en caoutchouc. Cette chaussure de style Charles IX version hyper moderne vous offrira une fondation solide pour les défis qui se pointeront (comme ne pas manger tous les biscuits d'un coup sans verre de lait.) Prepare for the Future, choose well today. (Préparez-vous pour l'avenir, faites le bon choix aujourd'hui.)
Karen from our San Francisco (Union Square) store says:
The angle of the toe swoop makes them fit a half size small.

best shoes ever!
I just got them yesterday,thanks to Phil from Fluevog Toronto,I folloowed his recommendation and got them in 7.5,so they are true to size for me. Very comfortable right out the box,super soft leather,specially inside.Very nice blue colour, I can see me wearing them with dresses,jeans,skirts or shorts.I'm glad I got them as I didn't want them to be the ones that got away, like it happened with the Coffee Arabica which I'm still desperately looking for. These are MINE ha ha >-)

Happy Birthday to Me!!
I am such a lucky girl!!! For my birthday, I was taken to NYC (which is awesome enough) but then I took myself straight on down to the Fluevog store to buy myself a pair, as a present to myself. I tried these on and fell in love. I bought them in the red/rust color. I wore them to a show while there and got tons of looks - which is hard to get in the Theater District!! My mom bought her first pair too - Happy happy birthday to me :)

Love these more than my Scouts!
Didn't think it was possible to love my orange Guides more than my brown Scouts, but I do! First day wearing them and I may never take them off. Happy feet, happy me. (Not to get too far ahead of ourselves seasonally, but I'd LOVE these in black suede for winter. Hint.)

Unbelievable Comfort and Style!
By far the most comfortable Vogs I've ever worn straight out of the box. I love them. LOVE LOVE LOVE them. @>- They are so cute and unique and really flatter the foot. I bought the brown because it's practical (LOL) but really want the blue ones. I found they to be true to size, 9.5. I added some foot pads in the front to keep my feet from sliding towards the toes and they are a dream. They are like wearing Danskos or some other orthotic type shoe but so much better. BUY THEM! (But just not the 9.5 in Blue, save 'em for me!)

I just got these in blue and, though I own roughly 35 pairs of Fluevogs, these may now be my absolute favorite shoes ever. They are perfect: sexy, bold, and, yes, comfortable. FYI re: sizing, I almost always wear an 8 or 8.5 in Fluevogs, but ended up going with a 9 in this shoe.

Wore them for a Vegas convention. Not only did they look GREAT, they felt like I was in running shoes. I has the added bonus of people asking me where I got my shoes?

I love my gorgeous red guides!!
Thanks so much to Brian at the Toronto store for all your help. Didn't have my size so he had to order them from Montreal. Monday the order went out and I had them for the weekend ... I don't think I will take them off, they are so comfy and cute!

Got my blue ones, now I have a pair in blue and brown. Comfy right out of the box. These feel like Dansko clogs but make me 3 inches taller! Sexy, comfortable, unique ... THANKS JOHN FOR FINALLY MAKING HEELS PEOPLE WITH FOOT PROBLEMS CAN WEAR!! LOVE!!!! Please make more platform-based shoes so problem feet can be sexy too!

P-) Omigod, I just got these in brown and ordered another pair in blue. They are super comfy, stable, and super cute! I never wear heels and these were comfy right out of the box. Love the wide mary jane straps.
