Big Presence |
[Black & Cheetah Print]
We celebrate and honor Angela Davis by naming this striking and confident loafer after her - a loafer that will walk with you all the way throughout the day and into the night. With smooth and supple leathers, and painted bovine hair, on foot molding leather soles, The Davis loafer uses modern materials on a classic style. John gave the super-pointed Presence last a little lift with a diamond shaped 2.75" leather wrapped heel with swooping curves, giving this simple loafer an unusually distinctive profile. If you put The Davis loafers sole-to-sole, and heel-to-heel, John leaves you with a lasting impression straight from his heart. Present yourself well.
Since 1969, the academic, activist, professor, feminist, communist, and revolutionary Angela Davis, has publicly been a vocal supporter of gay rights, women's rights, and race equality and was instrumental in social justice movements. Along with being a member of the Black Panther Party and the US Communist Party, Davis is one of the primary founders of Critical Resistance, a national grassroots organization dedicated to abolishing the prison system, believing it to be a new form of slavery. Davis' radical views have been fought with extreme opposition, as she was constantly harassed by the FBI, banned from teaching in California by then Governor Ronald Reagan, and was jailed for 18 months under a suspicion of accomplice to murder. Davis was also the inspiration for political songs written by John Lennon, and The Rolling Stones. Angela Davis recently retired as Professor Emeritus teaching the History of Consciousness at the Feminist Studies Department of UC Santa Cruz.

I saw the Davis Cheetah on Newbury Street and didn't buy them-didn't try them on. I was with a friend but had been looking for the perfect pair of leopard-ish shoes. I couldn't stop thinking about them! Ordered online as Boston was sold out of my size. I half hoped I would hate them as they were pricey for me. I got great fun emails keeping me in the know with where my shoes were. They arrived. They are so comfortable. So fun. Head turners. Beautifully made. Thank you!!

OMG these are fabulous!!
these are my 3rd pair of Fluevogs and I am in LOVE!!! Wore them for the first time today and everywhere I went people commented on how fabulous they are. I purchased the black/cheetah print version. The new distillery district store in Toronto is beautiful and the staff were fantastic. Walked in trying to convince myself that I was just going to look and both my friend and myself walked out with great shoes!!!

Love these shoes
I bought these in black/cheetah-fabulous shoes. So comfy (wore them all day first time out and they were perfect-no pain) and I get tons of compliments. Get these shoes! They fit my normal size, didn't run small. You'll love them! :-D

Just picked up the Davis in Black and Cheetah. These might be the sexiest shoes I've ever bought...and that's saying alot! I'm normally a 7 and went with a 7.5. It does narrow a bit by the toes, so I gave Big Toe and Little Piggy some extra breathing room and they fit great! Wore them out of the store. Thanks to the great customer service in the Seattle store.
