Poor poor Angel Supervogs
I want to echo the comments that I have seen on here. I have been a Fluevog customer since 2002. I switched over from Red Wing shoes when I saw the Angel Supervogs at a store in the Village in NYC. My first pair lasted 6 years. I loved the shoe so much, I bought the red and silver supervog to wear to my wedding. The last two pairs of black supervogs I purchased however only lasted 2 year each. My last pair had the sole detach from the shoe on the left side and a large chunk of the center of the sole come off. The quality went way down hill. Is it really because manufacturing moved to China? That makes me sad. Why would a company that prides itself on the quality of its shoes degrade their quality so much?
I want to stay with you guys because I have never worn a better shoe, but I'm not sure what to do.

WEAK store policy. No sale!!
same issue as another poster - wanted to buy supervogs but they didn't have my size in, they had them at another store and wanted me to pay the shipping. In a word, WEAK!

I have also owned these great shoes in several colours over the last two decades, and they have been amazing, durable shoes. But my last two pairs have been a disappointment. I had to buy the second because the previous pair wore out in less than a year - seams falling apart, leather tearing along seams...I use to wear my vogs every day and anywhere. With my current pair I wear them seldom, and they too are looking aged beyond their year. I love this company and it makes me sad that I may have bought my last pair of these shoes. I even wrote a heartfelt email about the destruction of my penultimate pair to the store I bought them from, asking what had happened - but I never even got a reply...Anyway, at least I have my memories...

Love these shoes, but...
I love these shoes! They look great, and now that they're a little "aged" they look even better. I wear them daily for work and nightly for... well... whatever! On stage or in the office, they are the perfect match to whatever I'm doing!
They took a couple weeks to break in, but after that were awesome, until recently...... they're only 6 or 7 months old and already the inside liner at the heel, and inside by my big and little toe is worn through. I'm a little concerned about the quality that would indicate. I was hoping to get more than the warranty period out of these beauties...

Sorry, no sale
I've owned a few pairs of Angels over the last ten years but not recently. I decided to treat myself to another pair of the best shoes I have ever had but was told that the stores here had none in stock and that I would have to pay to have them shipped in. The staff at both stores I went to today were very cold. Now I am reading that the shoes are made in China and fall apart. Sad. No more Fleuvogs for me I guess.

I want to love my Supervogs...
... but right now, I just can't! I bought burgundy/gray ones in February on a trip to Seattle, and they were perfect right out of the box.
Over the last month, though, the crease in the left one has shifted back onto the knuckle of my big toe, and it's EXCRUCIATING to wear it. I got my cobbler to stretch the spot out, but it turns out that it's not a space/roominess issue. There's kind of a box in the front, and for some reason everything around has softened up, but not the one patch where it bends.
What should I do? I can barely wear them right now, and only if I'm not walking around!

I was about to buy some of these shoes for my upcoming wedding, but now I hear the shoes are being made in China? I'd write a long note about how much that sucks, but I think I'll let my money do the talking. :/

For years I have worn Fluevog shoes. The best were made in Poland. Then they were made in Portugal - OK. The ones Made in China are just not up to your high standards of 5-10 years ago. I think people would pay a little extra for you to go back to better made shoes. Now I am looking for a new shoe company, but none compares with your formerly high standards. HElp? :-(

China made shoes
I have been loyal to the Supervog's for close to two decades having owned more than 10 pairs. It saddens me to say that the quality of the one's made in China don't hold a flame to one's I have made in Poland. Please please please consider increasing the quality control of your Supervog's so I can continue to buy more. :-)

Love these shoes but not new blue colour
O managed to get one of the last pairs of darker blue for this line and I am so glad I did, they are the most comfortable shows I have ever owned. I was so impressed I bought 2 more pairs of Fluevogs (Different styles). I was so depressed when I noticed teh new brigther blue. ( Iagree with teh other person who commented and called them Clown Blue) Please bring back the original colour blue!!!!
