Twin Turbines: 211 Carrall Street
En 1970, John et un collègue de travail de la boutique Sheppards, Peter Fox, lancèrent leur propre boutique de chaussures dans le quartier historique de Gastown. Au début, Fox & Fluevog avaient seulement des chaussures pour hommes, mais après quelques années réussies, la paire ouvra une nouvelle boutique vendant des souliers à talons pour les dames à quelques pas de là au 211 rue Carrall. Cette chaussure poursuit avec la méthode de fabrication classique de part en part avec ses semelles et guêtres faites de cuir italien de grande qualité. La 211 Carrall Street est une chaussure simple et épurée qui ira avec les complets vintage les plus chics.
Ces semelles de cuir peuvent être très glissantes. Si vous constatez que c'est le cas, nous vous recommandons d'ajouter une surface adhérente par mesure de sécurité.
Stephen from our Seattle store says:
The 211 Carrall Streets are a bit narrow in toe box, and so some customers have had to go up a half size to accommodate for width.

Response to another customer review
To the gentlemen above who commented that his shoes lost their "finish" after a few months. Basic shoe care dictates that you moisturize, polish and generally maintain the leather. If you don't, of course you will end up with terrible looking shoes. Don't blame Fluevog for you mistakes.

They looked great but...
I purchased these fine looking shoes in mid-may and fell in love with them. Incredibly comfortable and sharp looking. The downside is that the finish on the leather only lasted until mid july. I paid $280 for shoes that lasted two months. The customer service I received was deplorable and I was left on my own with my ruined shoes. I would love to continue wearing Fluevog's but based upon my experience with these I will never purchase anything else from Fluevog. (:`(

Classic/Comfortable "Dressy" shoe
Having already owned 2 other pairs of Fluevogs I knew where to go when I needed a brown pair of dress shoes. The friendly, attentive staff at Fluevog Boston are always amazing in helping or even just for conversation and witty banter.
I really like the classic silhouette of the shoe. It is sleek and refined both from the side and front. I like my shoes to run a little wide but these only took less than a week to break in. It will go great with any suit that you decide to pair it with.
That being said it can also be a very classy show piece for casual wear. I was given the turquoise laces to put in. The color combination between the cognac brown and the bright pop of turquoise, that is so apparent around Fluevog, is far from subtle but strangely perfect . I have gotten many enthusiastic compliments while wearing these with both jeans and cords.
The little details are what make something great. The full leather sole with only a rubber cap on the back, the exposed brass rivets in the heel, the craftsmanship, and the ability to wear these with both jeans and slacks, both dressy and funky are what make this a no brainer.

How can you not?
I had been eyeing these shoes up for a while and figured I had to make a move when I noticed there was only 1 pair left. I can't believe it took me that long! Comfortable. Sharp.Stylish. What more could you ask for?
