Dreaming in Fluevog!
I splurged on my first pair of Fluevogs this spring. I was looking for a red shoe and once I tried on the Operetta Giulias, I couldn't take them off and just had to buy them. They look great with jeans or skirts, and I get so many compliments on my Giulias, it's almost embarrassing.
I do find that some days they are comfortable, and other times I feel pressure on my instep. I usually wear them with a thin nylon sock since they are a little snug with regular socks. I should maybe have gone up a half size - I'm kind of an 8 3/4 in size.

I have these lovelies in burgundy, size 9.5. I usually wear a 9-10 in regular shoes, so I find them fairly TTS. They were a bit tough to put on the first time, but there's a trick to getting them on. Once you figure it out, it's much easier. They are adorable and super comfortable. I can definitely wear them all day without trouble.

My oldest Fluevogs
I own a lot of pairs of Fluevogs, and these were my oldest, about four or five years old. They got a fair bit of wear, as they are very versatile and comfortable. I had to replace the heels twice, and now the elastic on top broke. I don't know how I will get that fixed. I own another pair in green but they have laces, very similar looking, and the laces broke. I wear my shoes a lot, but it seems that my foot puts pressure on the top part in this type of shoe, and that is where most of the wear happens. Otherwise the leather part looks amazing still, even after all these years.
I am thinking to take them into the store for advice on replacing the elastic, as in the past the staff were very helpful about finding me new shoelaces for my other pair.

I love these shoes; I have had them several years now, and they look great with jeans (boot cut AND skinny), and also cute with leggings and a cute dress. They are surprisingly comfortable, and I can wear them for a good amount of walking. Two of the outer buttons did fall off, but were replaced by the kind folks at Fluevog Chicago, with a little bit of back-and-forth via email.
I will say that I have to use a shoe horn to slip my foot in past the ankle shaft, but, once in, it makes your ankle look petite. Great shoe.

I can wear heels again
These were my first pair of Fluevogs and I love them. The leather isn't the best quality, but they are so stylish. These shoes made me realise I could wear heels all day and still be comfortable. I got them in black and they work so well with skirts; and the 'dip' at the front means that feet don't look cut off; what i'm trying to say is they look flattering.

I felt like Cinderella's evil stepsister
I have 5 pair of Fluevogs all of which fit beautifully and are extremely comfortable. I seem to always be a size 9 but with these I couldn't squeeze my foot in them for anything! I don't know if it was the elastic insert, my high insteps, or a perfect storm of all of the above, but I just could not get them on. They are so cute and, I imagine, extremely versatile, but sadly, I will be returning them. (:`(

Love these shoes, but need a repair!
I was oogling these in the stunning red color at a local shoe store for months and then one day they went on sale! Yay! I save these babies for important talks and nice dates and recently noticed that the heel seemed to becoming unglued :-(. So sad! And the shoe store they were purchased from has sadly gone out of business. I guess my purchases weren't enough to keep them going in this economy.
Nevertheless, I went to my trusty local cobbler, and he had some sad news for me. It wasn't merely an unglued heel, the arch seems broken. Extra sad! Can anyone help me with this? I called the San Francisco store, but they couldn't help me since I purchased my shoes from a wholesaler, not to mention one who is no longer in business. I don't want to retire these shoes after only 8 or so wears and I want to be a Fluevoger for life! I have visions of my closet as an old woman filled with fluevogs for all occasions. L

The first time I wore these boots I lost the button. I have tried to get a replacement by contacting the Seattle store by phone and email with no avail. After reading the other reviews I have decided to write a review. I love fluevogs and have five pairs and this boot is the only one I have had issues with. I am disappointed that it has been so hard to get the boot fixed. PLEASE HELP!!!! :-(

How can you not go with black velvet?
As someone who needs to wear all black often for performances, these incredibly lush and comfortable booties in black velvet was a gorgeous and mischievous way to stand out from the monotony and assert a bit of personality! Bonus: John's custom message on the heel is music themed. Another bonus: they fit my custom orthotics. I would recommend going half a size down if you're between sizes so your feet don't slip around.

I arrived at friends' place by hiding behind the door: only part visible, my booted foot. Screams, jealous rages, 'can I have them when you die?' well, no dear friends, I'm getting buried in them. Thanks John, oh, thanks.
