[Black & Ivory]
Inspired by the pure, early days of his childhood helping his father with his ice cream shoppe, John brings you his modernized idea of a saddle shoe. Designed upon the popular Fellowship sole and aniline leather wrapped heel of soft comfortable rubber, this design is sure to be an instant favourite. After all these years, now is the time to bring out those poodle skirts, bobby sox, and Jerry Lee Lewis records.Old Friends are Good Friends.
Half sizes available.

The Erika fits perfectly (it's true to size)!

I got these in the Mandarin, and I love them. This is my third pair of 'Vogs, (Zaza in the purple and orange, and Flagstad in the teal/brown) and so far my favorite. I put a couple miles on them, a few times a week, and wear them with just about anything casual. Jeans, shorts, skirts, you name it.
I also get a lot of random compliments on my shoes, which is fun. :D
My other Fluevogs are 10s, but I went up to a 10 1/2 in these. I've got moderately wide feet, which was the deciding factor for me. I love the Alli and Amanda but they just don't match my foot shape very well - the rounder toe and wider cut of these is perfect.

I picked these up in pure black and I now wear them constantly. I can go for 9 hours on my feet and not feel a thing. I'm so happy with the way they feel. My only, teensy complaint is that the material the laces are made of slips really easily and so I'm retying them quite often. I'll have to pick up a new pair of laces soon so I have to keep pausing to tighten them up. Otherwise, the perfect shoe for work, going out, shows - everything!

awesome, but the heels are too soft
I have the Erikas, a mary-jane that isn't the Kathy's, and a mid-calf boot that's not listed here. In all three cases, the rubber on the heel is too soft and tends to disconnect from the rest of the heel, which causes damage to the leather wrap. My shoe repair man at UVillage in Seattle put a harder kind of heel on all 3 that looks great and solves the problem--but at $19.95 a pair it kinda sucks.

These are darling!
These are my go-to shoes: easy to slip on, comfortable for driving, and absolutely adorable. I have them in cobalt-and-brown (though the cobalt verges on turquoise, which I love). I went up half a size (from 5 to 5 1/2) because they run a bit narrow, but now that they've been broken in they feel a tad loose even with socks. While they are still comfy, I would suggest sticking with your true size and trusting the soft leather to give way after they break in.

I have a wide foot and, because of this, sizes in Fluevogs vary significantly. I typically wear a six, got these in a 6.5 and there is a little (but not too much) room at the toe. The width is just dandy. For reference I wear a 6 in the Wearever style and a 7 in Soprano. I would say if you have an odd foot go to the store. One of the sizes will fit you perfectly!

Feeling younger again
Looooooooooooooooove those shoes too. I wore yesterday and i was feeling i was going to school again :-B . Are so cute and the most important so comfortable.

These Vogs are instantly comfortable, fit true to size, have a really comfortable low heel height without being flat...and they are funky without being too heavy. My only wish is that the toe wasn't so square. Otherwise, they are perfect!

I have owned at least 15 pairs of Fluevogs, and I have two pairs of Fellowships including the Ericas. So far, my opinion of the Fellowships is that they fit nice and look pretty, but they are not as sturdy as I would like.

What's old is new - and much better!
I used to think that saddle shoes were ugly,and heavy, and clunky.. did I mention ugly? But oh .. THESE saddle shoes, in the blue/brown combo, are light and lithe, and fun!! I catch people eyeing them on the subway - and when they make eye contact and smile or nod - I know it's another Fluevogger. They look fantastic with jeans, with a straight skirt and tights, and I only wish I could still fit into my school uniform kilt!
