Being a big fan of public radio and road trips, John has spent a lot of time in his Flueguar listening to PRI (Public Radio International based out of Minnesota). Besides loving This American Life, John also identifies with PRI's core principles and values of celebrating diversity, mind-expanding global ideas, and the power of public media to encourage and nurture arts, culture, and the human spirit. In this vein, John was inspired to create a vintage- looking boot for the working Fluevogers using rough, aged Italian leathers with a hip-cat turned up waxed toe for that burned and tarred look. Featuring a strap and buckle on the instep, an industrial zipper on the inside calf, and a baggy fit design, The PRI boot allows you to have a versatile fit and style. Walkable tunite soles with a resoleable soft rubber topy make the PRI a comfortable and functional boot in your repertiore. Tune in, Turn on, and Vog out!

I got my purple Radio PRIs last week and I wish I could wear them every single day. They're awesomely comfortable on my narrow feet and fit true to size. I've gotten compliments whenever I've worn them, too.

:-D The best! It's about time Fluevog gave us a boot that could fit larger than average calves! Very comfy too!

Super purple boots with a nice wide calf. I always said I would not wear purple until I was older and these boots fit the bill.
Yay it fits my less than skinny Calves!
Could this boot BE anymore awesome? The answer is heck no! First of all the purple is a true purple, darker in person than it looks online (A way more gorgeous shade IMHO). Secondly, this puppy fits around my muscle-y calf (the first non lace up tall Vog to do so). Thirdly (is that even a word?) they have a classic style that will look good years from now but still the funky Fluevog vibe. You can't go wrong with these! :-D

BEST SHOES EVER
after much debate which is to say, after about 10 min of seeing these awesome boots online, I decided to order them.Got me the brown leather ones. I called the LA store to see if they could stretch out the calves (I have huge calves), so they did! I picked them up and wore them that night with skinny jeans tucked in even! I got compliments immediately! I admit, it was hard to get my foot in them at first due to high instep, but the fluevog staff said its normal and will stretch over time. Dont hesitate to buy these! these are the now my absolute favorite of my fluevogs!! I know I'll be wearing these almost daily!! LOVE THEM!!

Adore these boots!
I simply can't wear these boots enough! (And I've tried.)
I'm a functional kind of gal, and these boots fit right in with my lifestyle. The day I received them, I put them on over average-thickness socks and walked my dogs for a few miles. Incredibly comfortable (and beautiful)! I didn't take them off until 9 that evening. It was more comfortable to wear them than to be in my stockinged feet. How's that for comfort???
After putting them on, I scrunched them down toward the ankles. The "wrinkles" I caused left beautiful markings in the coloration of the (brown) leather. I scrunch them down when I first put them on so they become even more "worn" looking.
I need a high toe-box and these boots are explemplary.
The flat (1"?) heel is perfect for walking. Extremely comfortable!
I normally wear an 8.5, and the nines fit like a glove.
I wore these boots with skinny jeans and a long shirt, and the next day (!) with leggings and a very feminine top. Both looked like a million bucks!
These are my favorite shoes... they just snuck by my other pair of Vogs which, until now, were my favorites!
Oh, it's fun being fickle when you're dealing with Fluevogs!

I have been drooling over these boots since I first saw them. I was lucky enough to get a pair of the brown ones as a gift from my husband. I have to say that the web picture does not even begin to show how beautiful these are. I have worn them for three days straight and the wear patterns are so unique and just keep getting better. They fit a bit stiff at first, but have melted to my foot and leg contour perfectly after just a few days. The fit is very slouchy around the ankle, and I find the calf is quite generous compared to my other Vog boots. It is perfect for tucking leggings or jeans into. The boots are perfect for walking in, and despite having a job which requires me to move around a lot, my feet haven't hurt at all. I think these have now become my favorite pair of boots :)

LOVE these boots!!! Got them for my Birthday- as is my staple present every year- a pair of fleuvies! Wearing them as mush as possible, a little stiff at first but the leather already looks worn in and wonderful. Got 4 compliments the first day I wore them- YUP!
