Memories Hi: Keepsake
[Pale Pink and Grey]
Recently, John was cleaning out the design closet and found a keepsake from long ago - a single heel from seasons past memories. Finding this tall, slender heel brought back a flood of lovely memories from when John originally designed the heel. Feeling inspired, and realizing how far he has come since first designing The Memories, John decided to revisit his drawing, creating a taller 5" leather wrapped heel on a comfy 1" platform. Featuring an almond toe shape, soft veggie-tanned leathers in delicate pleating, and Attention rubber soles, The Keepsakes are both glamorous and understated. My memories of Love are all of you.

Narrow toe box, but can be easily stretched!
These are so classy and pretty! i LOVE that they have the rubber sole, great grip on such a pretty shoe, and no one can even tell how utilitarian they are on the bottoms ;). I have really wide feet, and a high instep, and while yes, these are high, they are mega-comfy! The toe box is super narrow for my wide feet, but they were just too pretty to pass up, so i bought them anyway, hoping that they could be stretched! Brought them to my local cobbler, and in a week, they were easily stretched to perfection,and without even deforming the looks of the shoe. The length was perfect, but now the width in the toes is as well! adore these beauties! I usually take a size 9-9.5 in most shoes, and these fit pretty true to size, got them in a 9.

rubber soles are for grannies no more
These are amazing. Stylish, cute, and ridiculously comfortable and easy to walk in... scared of slipping? nope. Invisible (to the public) rubber soles make these the perfect shoe... and what a great price!

The Perfect Seattle Keepsake
Roland, at Fluevog in Seattle, helped me into these lovelies and I quite literally ran around the store in them! There was an "incident" outside the store moments after trying them on, forcing me inside the store for almost 30 minutes while police arrested a shoplifter. To help me get over the trauma, Roland helped me try on as many pairs of Fluevogs as I wanted and gave me a colouring book to help ease the troubled memory pass. It did and now I have these sky high comfortable Keepsakes from my trip to Seattle. <3 ,-)

So my dear sweet man bought these for me as a just because gift. They have proven to be the most amazing heel ever. I was amazed at how comfortable I was in them over time despite the height. Seriously they are a steal!

A love that was not meant to be
I was so excited to receive my blue package in the main, but sadly, these gorgeous, gorgeous shoes have to go back from whence they came:(
The toe box is quite small, and I could hardly get my tootsies in.
Also the arch was just not lining up with my foot, and I would not be able to walk in them without difficulty. I have the same problem with the Mini Family too...
So so so sad. I really wished these were going to be a perfect fit.

Could not resist these any longer. Picked them up in black. Delighted to discover the rubber sole, they're like stilettos for ninjas. True to fit size 7 and a good fit for my average width foot. Super comfortable heel height. Only negative is that the seam near the 5th toe needed some softening up which the lovely Bekkie at the Chicago store gladly did. I might still need to put some moleskin in there though.

Bought these a week ago in Montreal... could not resist them in the pink/grey. Wore them all day, and they might just be the most comfortable shoe EVER, though nobody will believe it when you tell them that.

5 inches of sexy, curvy shoe!
I am delighted with my purchase of the pink Memory Keepsakes. The pale color and the height of the delicately curved heel make my legs go on forever. I stand 6'3" in these babies, and I can walk AND dance in them. I usually wear a 9 or a 9.5 in Fluevogs, and this time I got the 9.5. Happy that my toes are comfortable and that sexiness needn't be synonymous with masochism.

Tried these in the pink for my wedding shoes and fell in LOVE. Unfortunately the terrain at my ceremony does not lend itself to the height. I will however be getting these in the black as they are beyond comfy for a heel that high and wicked sexy
