Prepare Hi |
John wanted to take the Prepares to new heights. With a 4" curved heel and a 1" platform, The Steady finds a new altitude (and attitude). The Steady slip-on shoe features an oversized front elastic gusset, a bold toe outseam design,
durable waxed suedes, and a rubber treaded sole to keep you steady. The high heeled Steady is a fashionista shoe rich in texture and designed with swooping curves. Steady as she goes! Prepare to Rise Up.

A great shoe. Most ladies have been getting the smaller of the two if they are a half size, as they fit a little bit big.

These shoes are gorgeous; they are even more beautiful and unique in person. They definitely run large; my usual Fluevog size is 8.5; in Guides I got a 9 and in these I got an 8 and they fit great. I got them in black and wish I could swing the yellow and purple. These are the highest heel Vogs I have and I definitely can feel the difference between these and my minis, even with the platform. These are comfortable and cushy enough and don't rub my feet or anything, but they're not a running around shoe. I do feel quite steady in them, though, in spite of the height.

WHOA! Hello mama!
Arrived and ON! Whoa higher than expected but deservingly so!. I chose the yellow ones and they are divine....certainly stand out and with black attire....look amazing! The black elastic over the top hold the foot firmly in place...IMMEDIATE COMFORT! Not the All-Day-Stompers that the Merit and all others in that family are marvellous for....however it is after dark where these puppies will come into their own....hello gents!

Another Prepare Beauty!
These are just amazing! Tried on the yellow at the Seattle store, they are more mustard than sunny. The material is suede, so you should treat them accordingly. Since they are in whole sizes only, you may have to size down (I did, from a true 9.5 in the Guides). The fan style elastic top is just stunning. The purple is a saturated plum, so rich and royal. I suspect most people will buy at least two colors!!! These wll look great with skirts and pants, really versatile.

I bought the size 6 (wear size 6 in other Vogs) yellow Steadys. They were gorgeous on and the mustardy yellow acted like a neutral going with pretty much everything. Even with the platform they are high heeled (compared to the Guides which feel almost flat to walk in) but are stable. The problem I had was that they fit about 1 size large - no amount of stuffing in of inserts, gels, and wearing of thick socks helped with keeping my heel in and foot secure. Very sad I had to return these with no option of sizing down.

Loving my new shoes!
Arrived home from work this evening to find these boxed and beautiful on my doorstep.
Bought the purple - now thinking about the mustard. They're beyond beautiful. I really wish you all were looking at my feet in these shoes (except that'd be weird).
Saw these online yesterday, called the haight store and - BINGO! They're comfortable with sexy curves. They do run big - and St. Denny, He of the Shoe, was absolutely right in steering me to one size smaller.
Thank you to Denny. Thank you to the magical cobblers that make up Familas Fluevog.

Stepped into my local Fluevoggerie (that would be Washington DC) to try the fantabulous Rainbow boot, but before I could open my lips to say, "Size 8 please" I spotted these hefty hunks of gorgeous. My man Shawn brought me the purple and the yellow to try, since I could not decide--I pronked around the store in one of each color, which clenched the deal: "I'll take 'em both!" I wear one of each color and amaze the masses. I normally wear an 8 (although I have Vogs all over the map--John does not want us to be complacent), but these lovelies fit me much better in a 7. They have weight, which stabilizes them, the heel does not feel high, the weird toe seam is delightful, and so far they rawk with skinny jeans, short skirts, long skirts, and baby bootcut cords. Will I abandon all my Guides? Nope. But move over in the closet--Prepare Hi is "last"ing love!
