Featuring a men's swing toe last, eyelets and speedlaces, rubber soles, and 2" leather wrapped heels, The Nuni is both militaristic and feminine, making it a solid winter boot for
ladies that will allow you to weather the elements effortlessly while still looking adorable. Combining the design elements of The Adrian Family with full grain Atlas
leathers from The Radios that crease and patina, The Nuni boots will look great with age. Drawn as a Radio BBC boot
meets a work site boot, The Nuni is named after our favourite deep sea diver with a "take no prisoners" attitude. A
thankful person is a happy person.

Great fitting boot for most people. Wider feet sometimes feel snug, but can be stretched.

Five years ago I sustained a major foot injury, consequently resulting in chronic foot pain. I have tried many shoes, including runners which did little to alleviate my pain and discomfort. Reluctantly, I finally decided to try on a pair of Fluevogs, as I wasn't ready to pay so much money for a pair of shoes and I didn't believe it would significantly help my foot pain. I am so happy I did! When I got into the Nuni boots it felt like I was home, they just fit and felt so right, what a difference. I have a narrow foot, so the tight fit was perfect and my injured foot feels completely protected. Not to mention that they look sooo cute. Thank You John Fluevog.

Sexy Little Boot
I have never been in the Granville Store. I always call and Preet and her Vogoligist family know my feet very well. I got these sexy little boots in purple. They fit perfectly. Another pair of Fluevogs that will go with any outfit. They make your feet look dainty and stunning. I am one very happy Vogger.

To Die For!
These are the most comfortable footwear I have ever owned; even more comfortable than my Libby Smiths, and that is saying something! I always go up 1/2 size in Vogs; these were no exception. No rubs or pinches anywhere! I have a wide foot, and some foot issues I have to compensate for;perfect boots! (My podiatrist says, "Buy the Fluevogs. No imitations".Such a sad prescription :D Thanks to Sean in Calgary! Fluevogs, you sure know how to pick your staff!

Love these boots!
I first saw these boots in Calgary in September. I tried them on but bought a purse instead. Upon returning to Ontario, decided I made a horrible mistake not buying them! As soon as I was able, I drove to The Toronto store to buy them. Alas, no purple in stock however there were ordered from another store and sent to me in no time. I'm glad I tried them on again, went with a size 10, usually wear size 9. These were my first pair of fluevogs. The purple is fantastic but I agree with the other reviews, the laces are too short! Can you offer linger laces in purple for sale? I can't believe I only discovered this past September! :-D

I originally bought these purple boots in my true size (11) although they were too small. I ordered a size up and the 12 fit me great. Mind you I had to use a stretch spray to stretch them out. They are very narrow but they break in beautifully. I wish it wasn't -30 out so I could wear them everyday. They look great with skinny jeans and skirts. These are my first pair of Fluevog's and I am totally in love them! I wish the laces weren't so chunky though and were a bit longer. Other than that I will wear these until they fall apart. I am now addicted to Fluevog's! @>-

great boots, skimpy laces
I'm enjoying the purple iteration of the Nuni. These boots are constructed with some serious cobbler techniques, reminiscent of my battered-but-still-rocking Redwings. However, the matching laces are just too short for the boot. My foot and ankle are narrow, so that there is virtually no gap at the vamp or shaft, but the laces will only reach the second-to-the-top pair of speed-lace hooks. C'mon, folks, finish the job properly and give us full-length bootlaces!

I love these - they're the Fluevog take on a solid work boot. Which means, of course, that they're comfortable, well-made, and sassy.
These are great with long pants, jeans, and short skirts. I think they're particularly cute with a contrasting pair of socks peeking out of the top. (I would.)
One note about size: these do run a bit narrow, as noted, but not as drastically as the rest of the Adrianas. I couldn't wear any of the oxfords, but I went a size up in these (from a 10 to an 11) and they are perfect. (Oh, what I wouldn't give for a paragraph break . . . )

I love these boots. Not only are they my second pair of purple boots, they are my favorites! I love the semi-Victorian look of them, and that they look great with tights or jeans.
They do fit narrow, and I ended up buying a full size larger than I normally wear in Fluevog to compensate. My normal size might have stretched, but I didn't want to risk it. These fit perfectly with a leather insole or a thick sock.
So comfortable for all day at work on a concrete floor!

I LOVE these boots - my first pair of Fluevogs and they definitely won't be my last. I had been admiring them on the website for weeks and tried them at the Queen Street store - never thought of my feet as being wide but for this narrow fit they were. No problem though - the staff was accommodating and stretched them for me 2x. Very happy with them! Thanks! @>-
Wow, what service!
I've been yearning, and saving, for the purple version ever since I first saw them. Yesterday, a birthday check from my brother sealed the deal, so I called the Portland store for advice on sizing (I take an 8-8.5 in most Fluevogs, but the guy I talked to suggested I go up to a 9 in these).
I wound up ordering from the Website, expecting to have to wait a week or two. Imagine my delight when I got an almost immediate confirmation that they'd shipped from the PDX store (with a "happy birthday!" added) ... and when I came home from work tonight to discover they'd already been delivered.
I couldn't be happier. They're just as purplicious as I'd hoped, and they fit like a dream with my hand-knitted winter socks - I could go dancing in these boots, or hike all day in the woods. And the folks in Portland even tucked some extra birthday swag in the box. Great customer service, and gorgeous, gorgeous boots!
