[Bleu & Gris]
Un style angélique classique avec des tourbillons bien détaillés sur les côtés combiné aux rayures sur la pointe. La languette rembourrée et le cuir dont elles sont faites assurent un confort et une excellente durabilité. Semelle angélique originale; 100% naturelle, biodégradable, qui se ressemelle, qui résiste à l'alcali, l'eau, l'acide, la fatigue et à Satan.

My Angel Supervogs (Cobalt Blue w/ Gray rub-off) have reached a state of severe decrepitude. The stitching has pulled away, the well-cared for leather has cracked, etc. All of this wear and tear has resulted from nearly daily use for many years.
"So what's your problem they gave you good service--just buy some new ones", you might think.
My problem is, I tried to buy new ones and failed--I stopped in at Fluevog SF on Haight on Memorial Day to try on a new pair and to my utter dismay the new Angel Supervog Blue w/Gray rub-off is not even close the original shoes that I own, or more importantly, to the color of my hair--in fact, the new ones are for lack of a more polite way to say it, clown blue. I told the salesman I was not interested and he said "Why not?" At which point I took my old shoes off and held them up next to my hair and the salesman looked at me and said "What's your point, lots of people like the new color?"
As a supreme purveyor of style, you can surely understand that I cannot wear clown blue shoes with midnight blue/lapis lazuli hair. Nor for that matter can I wear clown blue hair. Moreover for the rest of your beloved customers, the old shoe color goes, in my opinion far better with black than the new. I own about 50 black shirts so, I am rather heavily committed.
If you would be willing to restore/recreate my most beloved shoes, I would be most grateful.
This following may refresh your memory regarding how we met:
My household of three collectively owns more than a dozen pairs of Fluevog shoes. As we like them so much, and I was so impressed with your unique approach, I set out to learn more. A few years ago, I drove all the way from Montana to Vancouver to meet you.
Upon arriving at your store, I introduced myself to your staff and let them know that I had sent a few emails as advance notice to see if you might be around when I arrived. Their initial response was of the form "Are you kidding?" I said "Do I look like the kind of cat who kids around?" They said they would see if you were in and lo and behold you were. You came over to the store, cup of coffee in hand, and said to me "Nice blue hair" at which point I pointed to my matching Fluevogs and you smiled. I then asked you about the inception of the business and your unique approach to shoes. You leaned in quite a bit (I am rather a bit shorter than you are), looked over your glasses and said "I'll tell you if you really want to know." You paused, peered intently and then said, "You look like you really want to know!" You then began to tell me about the business, the tough days in shoe retail and the vision that led you to create your own company. We talked for about 30 minutes. I found our conversation fascinating, because I believe that there are no coincidental meetings, and came home to Bozeman to tell all my friends (who, not coincidentally, all wear Fluevogs) about our meeting. Sadly, the store in our town that sold Fluevogs, no longer does so.
I submit this long request, because I believe that of all the shoemakers in the world, only you would understand or perhaps undertake the style challenge presented herein.
The pictures attached to this email may help clarify my dilemma.
P.S. Don't think I can put pictures in you web thingee--email me and I will send them.

I read a negative comment about the red ones. Too bad. They could have been great, but looking carefully at the blue photo vs the red photo - ya. The red does not have the same shine. At least not in the photo.
I've had many pairs of angels. I'm pretty sure I had a green pair. If I didn't, then I would like a green pair. lol

7th Pair, not very happy
I've been a huge fan of Fluevog shoes for well over a decade. Sad to say though that my newest pair of supervogs are not up to my expectations. My blue (polish made) pair are in beautiful shape, but my newest red (china made) pair are already tearing badly on the inner lining. I still love you guys, but I guess they just don't make 'em like they used to.

literal angels on the soles of my shoes
When I was first looking at these shoes online, I honestly couldn't decide between the white/black and the blue/gray colorings. While I admired the elegance of the white/black, I ultimately decided that the blue/gray would pop better in real life.
My shoes just arrived and it turns out that I totally made the right decision. They look just awesome and I am super excited to have them on my feet. I have never before in my life been so satisfied with an online purchase that I went out of my way to give it a good review. These shoes are worth it.
I just put them on, so they still have a little of that new shoe pinch, but they already have the right feel of footwear that will settle in well. I now feel free to set forth across this great, rolling world that much more resistant to Satan.

A year later...
and my supervogs are definitely the most comfortable pair of shoes I've owned in a long time. The roomy toe box and yet snug midfoot make a perfect combination. No heel slippage but plenty of wiggle room for my toes. Get a pair...you won't be sorry!

I was really excited to get these shoes. They're heavy but look beautiful and are obviously good quality.
Sad to say, they kill my feet. My toes are slightly squished, which is my fault - should have got a bigger size.
A bigger problem though is that they rub on the heels and ankles. I've been hoping it would get better with time and it has, slightly, but they're still painful to wear. Such a shame. I'm wondering if I can get a credit for them against something else.

Hi Una, please contact the store you purchased them from, and they can help you out. Thanks!

Warm Memories and Shoes***
A dear and fun friend of mine was wearing a Pair of Black SuperVogs
with white stitch, when she turned me on to Fluevogs, thus commencing my obsession with the shoes. She forced me to try them on in the middle of a crowded party, swearing they were the most comfortable shoes I would ever where. Indeed they were. She has since passed on, taken by Cancer. I've bought 3 other pairs of Fluevogs since then, my goal is 7 pair, one for each day of the week. But these, pair #4, are my new favorite, SuperVogs, Black with white stitch. Like her, understated and funky and the same time. I think of her laugh, warm friendship, and silly pranks every time I wear them.
Thank you for making such beautiful shoes.

I love them. I got the blue/gray. In the picture it looks blue/black. The gray is a much lighter color in person but I think they look even better in real life. The fit is great. Love love love!

I've had my pair for about two years, and they're the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. They did take a while to break in, but are well worth it. I get frequent compliments, too. ^_^
Posted by tonychr from Seattle:
I bought the red/grey Angel Supervogs a little over a year ago and love them. There was no breaking in time and they are very comfortable. The only problem I had was the leather in the inside back of the shoes wore down fairly quickly and I had to get them repaired. Even with the repair, I don't regret purchasing them. I just hope that it's not a yearly repair.
Now only if the ox-blood boots were taller (mid to upper calf height.)
