True to his Canadian roots, John broadcasts the first style in the updated Radio family. Featuring colorways of aged Atlas leathers, printed bovine bristle, or burnished suedes, an upturned toe, a wider footbed built on a Men's last, and a tunite heel & sole, the CBC is the new feelgood hit of the summer. Tune in, Turn on, and Vog out!
Tanya from our Calgary store says:
The CBCs fits true to size. The Cheetahs patterned CBCs tend to fit a little more generously than its suede and leather sisters.

I got the brown shoe and the glue? smell is horrible. I aired them out for a week and they still smell. They are better but the smell is still apparent. Contacted store manager and he questioned my sensitivity to smells...they smell! I was not willing to pay shipping to and from to exchange so am living with them. Other reviewers mentioned the smell. I live 8 hours away from the store where I bought them. Went up 1/2 size which I rarely do, they fit fine.

Cool but smell funny
I absolutely love every shoe in the Radio family. I just purchased my fifth pair, these super fun CBC's in camo. I've never owned anything camo and knew right away I needed these. They do fit a little bigger than my CBC's in leather, I got a half size smaller and they work fine. Weird thing though, they smell funny. I assume it's the dye and that the smell will go away soon enough but they smell strongly. Sitting here at my desk at work I can smell my shoes. This is the first day I've worn them. Don't be surprised when you open the box or wonder what that smell is when you hit the street in your new shoes.

Why did I wait so long?
Not sure why I waited so long to try on these shoes . . . but once I did, it was a no brainer. I'd been looking for a stylish 'flat' for running around town, as an alternative to my pairs of heeled boots. Wow. They feel like slippers, and I'm very excited to add a brown pair to my collection and wardrobe! Looks much more refined and lady-like than the pictures on the website suggest . . . love them and the little peek of aqua laces!

Got the pony hair cheetah print, in a size 7 for my narrow and on-the-smaller-side-of-8 feet based on the advice of the Boston store staff. Lovely and a great fit too. Wore them to work right of the box with no problems. The leather is soft and supple, and you know cheetah kinda does go with everything...

Because I have a broad foot i got these in a men's size. They look fab and fit perfectly on my feet. I just love them. This is my 3rd pair of vogs and they are all beautifully made and perfectly fitting. I get comments wherever I go on them. Che Bella

how to get people to notice your shoes
buy bright blue ones. wear them. often. i needed to go up a size in order to get my short wide feet into these CBCs, but once i did, they fit like a glove. they are comfortable, the cut fits perfectly under my ankles on the sides, and they have required not a minute of breaking in. i could use just a hair more width in the toe box, but with time i am sure that they'll wear a little stretch into them.

True blue through and through
The new blue suede radios had to be mine as soon as I saw them. So they are, and have been out and about with me several times, always eliciting envious praise and a few amusing attempts at an Elvis Presley voice. This is my third pair of this particular style. The other two took some effort to break in (they needed stretching for my moderately wide foot), but these being suede are so much softer and fit perfectly (and comfortably) from the moment I first put them on.

I've never thought that I could like an object that encompasses my feet so much. I'm a 9-10 W, and I got the brown leather CBC's in a 7 M and they fit perfectly. My feet never hurt when I wear them. The leather feels amazing and looks amazing as well (and it smells amazing but really who's smelling my shoe?). The color scheme is brilliant: the shoes match almost every outfit I wear, and I am always getting compliments on them. These shoes are, without a doubt, the best purchase I have ever made.

Ordered these in purple for an early Christmas present! I got a size 6.5 in purple, and they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned! they are perfectly fitted. You know how babies love to be swaddled? That's how my feet feel when I put these on. And the color is gorgeous! I loved them so much, my husband ordered a men's pair in green! He looks so sexy in these shoes! And they make you look taller! (Very important for short people, like me!)
