Ease is a Gibson design that grew from a love affair between The Rosy and Promise patterns. This darling sports a Hope rubber sole, a 2.25" leather wrapped heel of The Thanks Family, and soft matte leather of The Prepare Family; a combination that makes for a comfortable and stylish child sure to make Rosy, Promise, and your feet proud. F is for all things Hope.

These shoes have a nice, wide toe box and the laces allow for a generous fit. They are a little shorter in length, so some Fluevogers find themselves going up a half size.

This family rocks!
I decided to go for the Ease as my second pair of Vogs (the first being the Rosy boot). I ordered via phone with the NYC store. Styles was awesome and he definitely picked me out a great looking pair. When they arrived at the beginning of the month I was even more pleased by the color. Instead of a tan color as it appeared on my computer screen, it is more of a yellow ochre to burnt sienna....or a mix of the two. It's been a while since I painted and unfortunately I used up what I had of those two colors. The forest green is also a lovely touch.
I only had slight discomfort with the right side rubbing where some of the stitching is on the inside of the right shoe (go figure...normally it's my bigger left foot that has issues). I had to wear a bandaid over that part for a week or so, but it got much better every time I wore them and now I'm bandaid-free. They really are amazingly comfortable and just the right size of heel for all day wear at work. I've gotten tons of compliments, although some people still think I'm nuts for spending $149 on a pair of shoes. But after a childhood of having fit issues with shoes; when I find a pair that works, made of time tested materials that will last forever with care...well I go for it and you should too.
Oh and for waterproofing these puppies I used my ugg suede spray and it worked great without any discoloration.

These were may first pair of Fluevog shoes. I had been saving up to purchase a pair for some time. When I tried these on there was no comparison to another brand I tried--these ones took first place. They are so comfortable. I have worn them all day and my feet were not crying take me off. I purchased a size 10 even though I take a size 9. This shoe makes my foot look small. I then went back to the store in Ottawa and purchased the lace up boot in the same style and love the fit. I am hoping to purchase a pair of summer Vogs. It is true they do not require a breaking in time. They are soft, comfortable and a dream to wear. Great shoes!!!

These are so comfortable! I'm tired of pointy toes and wanted something different, but still stylish, that I could wear to work and for a casual night out. These are perfect! The leather is soft, my feet are happy - and I get compliments wherever I go. I've worn them to work, to play and even while walking around downtown. Love them!

My first pair of Fluevog and it won't be my last. Usually wear a size 9 but purchased a size 10 and they fit perfectly. Love my shoes.

The best shoes ever!
I love these shoes! After staring at them on the website for at least a month I finally took the time to get to the D.C. store to try them on and they were even better than the picture. I have incredibly wide feet and with a little stretching they fit like a glove. They just look beautiful on my feet. I own 8 pair of Fluevogs and they are now my new favorites.

These shoes could have been made for me!!!
Bought eight pairs of fabulous Fluevogs in Montreal two years, and made the trek again today. Was specifically looking for something with laces, a low heel, some support and some style for my upcoming trip to China. I have a very wide foot, and it's so hard for me to find fabulous shoes that fit and are comfortable. I bought these in the black suede and they are amazing -- it felt as if they had been molded to my feet. And even though there is a heel, it's lower than those of my other 'Vogs, and I could walk a lot in these. I actually danced in them in the store!!!!!

Best Little Shoe Ever
Went with my husband and son to the Gastown Store (just to see John's big picture on the wall) and we each came away with a new pair of Vogs! We had the best help ever and our friendly and fabulous Fluevogologist, Wes, picked these babies out of the ocean of shoes -- just for me! (I had wanted to try one the Hopes Promise, but they didn't have my size in the colour I wanted -- lucky me!!) Due to silly, bumpy feet, I take anywhere from a 9.5 (Operettas) to an 11 (Adrianas) in a Fluevog and these sweeties had to be a 10.5 for me (the 10 was a bit short in the toe). I have the black pair and they are sooooo comfy and adorable and flattering and sexy -- the perfect shoe to wear year round. I'm in LOVE! (next up -- Hopeful Serenes!)
