This delightful ankle booty was named in honour of the lovely Khushboo, whose name actually means 'delicate fragrance' in Persian. With soft moments of love and respect, John designed The Khushboo with walkable rubber soles & heels, soft lovely leathers, and patterned laser
cut outs as if these boots were crafted from fields of wildflowers. Truth and Integrity... Since 1970.

I bought these in black and I love them. I usually wear a 10.5 or 11 in Fluevogs and I have very narrow feet. I bought the 10.5 and they fit a tiny bit tight but the leather is so soft that they broke in perfectly. I wear these all the time, with everything, doing everything.

Very comfortable! I also got grey and had the same problem with the colour comming off the front of the toe. I sprayed protector on them regularly and that seems to help the problem.

before fluevog, i didn't know i could wear heels (or have a shoe obsession). well, needless to say, i now have an embarrassment of flubags in my closet....but before these, i didn't know how much i loved flats...i stared at these for months, and dove in when i saw the sale tag...i LOVE these shoes. they're ridiculously comfortable, soft, luxurious, glovelike...they feel like casual and look like elegant. with jeans or a skirt...and they're oh, so very cool. i keep trying to wear something else, but i can't take these off...(oh, and a huge shout out to the wonderful folks on melrose...i've made pilgrimages to other vog meccas...vancouver is divine, indeed, but i sure love coming home to my melrose guys....)

I loved these shoes. Tried them on in the store and fell in love. I bought them without a second glance. I have a disability that requires a supportive shoe, and they felt great in the store. Sadly, I didn't get a warning that sale items cannot be returned.
I wore them around the house for a few hours, and realized after a bit that there is absolutely no support of any kind. Adding an insole would create a line at the side of the shoes due to the uber-thin leather (which is gorgeous, and why I fell in love with them!) So I'm stuck with a $200 pair of fabulous boots that I can't wear and can't exchange. :-(
My first Fluevogs are a total disappointment and I want to cry every time I see the box in my closet.

comfy but with problems
I bought these and was so happy to discover them. They were exactly what I needed and I get lots of compliments on them... even though within the first week of owning them the leather started peeling off at the toes. Like, little patches. :( I got the grey ones. They are however the comfiest shoes I've owned, so I still wear them all the time!

This is my 2nd pair of Fluevogs. I love the fit, the details, the color. These are very comfortable and I can wear these for the entire day with complete ease. I rather dislike taking them off. Very cool limited lacing up. Takes the style to a whole new level. :-D I shall be back for more luscious footware soon.

I bought these for the name. Honestly. But oh man. SO HAPPY. First of all, they fit like a women's vog, which is to say, kind of narrow. My big flat Persian paddle feet don't dig narrow 99.9% of the time. But this time, yeeeaaah... With the aide of a nifty pair of shoe trees (I always recommend these for high end leather shoes. Trust me. Shell out the extra $30. I meant, you just paid $200 for shoes, cmon), the gorgeous buttery leather stretched just a smidge (evenly) so my deformed dinosaur feet didn't completely screw up the leather.
Now. I love wearing these with: tights, leggings, skinny jeans, dresses, skirts, you, name, and it. It works with everything. Covering the upper part a little with a straight leg jean lets the surprise of the beautiful design peek out. They look like granny shoes with the tops covered, but BAM not your grannies shoe when you catch the little details.
Anyways. Do it. Buy them.

This is my sixth (yes, sixth) pair of Fluevogs. And as usual, they did not disappoint. I have narrow feet and these boots fit what I expect of Fluevogs. That is, I wear thick socks with all my boots. Put them on and wore them all day without any kind of discomfort. I like the style of laces to the ankles and the the open flap the rest of the way. The leather is extremely soft and the color is beautiful. The cutout design on the heels are really cool extra touches. I called my fav Chicago store and had them ship me these beauts. BTW, Chicago gals and guys - you ROCK! Would love to see a pair of red leather lacers (no zippers for me!) boots without high heels! I recommend Fluevogs to all my friends that want top quality boots and to those stylish people that stop me to compliment me on my fabulous boots.
