An iconic Fluevog line from the 80s, popularized by its distinctive pointed toe shape, The Swordfish has been re-imagined by John into this killer boot. Using tough, glossy patent leathers, tunite soles, decorative zippers, it's no wonder The Swordfish are cherished and collected by rockstars everywhere. Named in honour and memory of one of Rock'n'Roll's seminal shredders, The Buxton guarantees school's out forever! Stay Sharp!

They fit true to size but narrower than most men's shoes.

Great stylish eye-catching boot!
I love Fluevog and own many of their shoes/boots. Too many to count. I was originally in search of a pair of black boots, but came across these online, and was hooked. The boots are definitely edgy (comments I've received: "Star Trekky", "outer space", "alien"). I love that they pass for black boots, but have that oh-so subtle hint of blue tint to it. And of course the design of the boots are just eye-catching. Great with business casual and jeans for a night out. If you're daring you could pull them off with a suit. Some comments: I'm a size 9.5 and got size 10 (I think they're only available in whole sizes) which was a good move especially since the tips of the boots are narrow. Despite having these for a couple of months, the leather is stiff, but slowly breaking in. They are challenging to slide on to your feet. I just force them on, but should probably should use a shoe horn. Another recommendation - wear thick socks and not dress socks. Because of the stiffness of the leather, the boot tends to chafe my ankles when wearing dress socks. This is definitely a "fashion over function" type of boot.

Luv my mouse stompers!
So admittedly these are my favourite pair of Vogs. I have high arches so they're work to get into. I've considered cutting off part of my heel or losing a toe but a shoe horn does just fine. Always get looks and a compliment with these.

ALICE COOPER MADE ME BUY 'EM
As my title states,that's how I was ingulfed into the Wonderful World Of Fluevog's by Mr. John by way of Uncle Alice LOL.In 1991 Alice wore a pair of COWBOY BOOT SWORDFISH boots for his "HEY STOOPID" album and tour.Being a total Coop nut,I had to have those boots.I bought my first pair of SWORDFISHIES which I still proudly show off on special outtings to the Toronto Store where the coolest "Fluevogians©" serve to please, including Miss Heather(a fine lass)and friends.Since then I have purchased my brand new worn black "COOPER" SWORDFISH and resently took home my blue "BUXTON" SWORDFISH 3/4 boots.And yes there are more planned soon.So comfy cool I figured I'd collect the family.Now if only I could get Mr.Fluevog and Mr. Cooper to autograph them for me..Hint hint. Heather,I'll be at the T.O. store soon.Let ya know.LOL.

When I saw the Swordfish reissued, I ran directly into the store waving a handful of money (well, a plastic debit card really) looking for the Edwardian Hamburgers. Since my instep is insanely high, the heel plus the zipper weren't going to do up without massive stretching. I was crestfallen.
The nice lady at the store then turned my attention to the Buxton. This low-heeled sassy boot was even BETTER than my original intended purchase! Comfortable, bullet proof blue/black leather, and perfect with skinny jeans, slim dress pants and suits. The perfect combo of classy and punk rock. Absolutely no break-in time - they felt like home the second I slipped them on.
In short, these are awesome.
