[Black & Beige]
Named for and designed by San Franciscan Samantha Zaza for John's Open Source Footwear Program (OMG! If you don't know about this click on Fluevog's Open Source). Built upon the Fluevog classic Mini heel, this spats inspired wide strap with three cutesy buttons attached by elastic is sure to fit all shapes of feet. Samantha's design made John stand up and take notice, and he declared her design an OSF "Chosen" design. We hope you are as excited as John is. (To find out more about Samantha and her shoe the Zaza.) Go on, fall in love. We dare you!
Jessamy from our Boston store says:
The fit of the Zaza is on the long side. The strap is not adjustable, so the fit might be loose if you have a low instep or a very narrow foot. Many go down half a size in this style.

Makes wide feet happy!
If you have wide feet, these are the shoes for you. I love them so much, I bought them in two different color combos. They work with skirts or with pants.
The thick heel makes walking very stable and yet they are not granny shoes. You will get noticed.
THank you, John and the gal who designed these!

First Fluevogs and I'm in love!
These are my first Fluevogs. I went to the newly opened Calgary store and the very helpful Phil D (I think was an import from the Toronto store) recommended them in the lime and chocolate. They are like wearing clouds. Seriously comfortable shoes. And, hearts to Phil D! He was fabulous. He new just what size my feet were nad was bang on the first guess. We had a lovely discussion about Newfoundland and Halifax (places I call home) and it was one of the BEST shoe shopping experiences I have had. Thank you Phil D and thank you, Fluevog. The first pair of many, I am sure!

I'm in love
I'm in love with my new shoes, I got the Zaza in black and beige and they are so comfortable I wore them out of the store. And a big thank you to Brie at the LA store for helping me pick out my first pair of Fluevogs, they definitely won't be my last. :-D

I got the red/pink pair. I have wide feet and frequent problems, but these shoes are a dream, they are so comfortable. They fit in my true size of 8.5, and staff at the NYC store were so kind to call and discuss it with me. Bravo on customer service. The UPS man who delivered them was pretty cute too. I guess that has nothing to do with Fluevog...but it was an all around great experience. :-D

Sadly, not for super-narrow feet.
I love this style SO MUCH but after going down an entire size and still feeling my foot slide a bit when I walk (enough to cause problems after hours of wear) I finally had to admit that this style doesn't work for my very narrow feet. I need a strap that can tighten and hold my foot in, sadly!
I finally had to replace my beloved Zazas with Pearl Harts, which I also love. But I still miss the Zazas. :(

First and foremost....a big shoutout to Phil at the Toronto store for his help and his honesty and I can't forget Jaiko from the Vancouver store where these lovely beauties, the brown and green Zazas, came from.
Personally, for me, the Zazas fit true to size (I am a size 10).
I tried the 9.5 on as suggested by Phil and found that my toes were right up against the toe box.
I was sleeping yesterday (I'm a shift worker) when the doorbell rang midday. I raced downstairs, and low and behold, the mailman stood there with a brightly wrapped turquoise box. I knew they were my Zazas. I signed a signature that I'm sure looked nothing like mine and grabbed the box out of his hands. I ran to the kitchen, ripped open the beautiful wrapping and squealed and put on my lovelies. I pranced infront of the mirror admiring their beauty and comfort and relunctantly made my way back to bed to prepare for my second night shift. I slept with them. ,->

These red-and-pink lovelies just arrived in the post. They are like no other shoes I own. Bold, does not begin to describe them. These shoes are not for the meek. The spats, the bud-like buttons, the hourglass heel and the frilly rubber sole add up to something entirely unique. If punk rockers were to throw a 1920s mobster-themed garden party this would be the footwear of choice.

After coveting these shoes for a very long time I finally ordered the red ones (thanks to the Vancouver stores!). They arrived and I loved them so much I ordered the black ones as well!!!! I have received many compliments and the red look great with my straight leg jeans! Love 'em.

Worth every penny
I work in a hotel and I am on my feet all day long. I have had my Mini Zaza's for a couple of years now. They are still as comfortable today as they were the first time I wore them. Who would of thought a shoe with a heel could be the best shoe I ever owned.

GOOOOOOOOOOSH, LOVE AT FIRST WEAR!
I thought about the purple and orange Zazas for a few days after I had purchased and returned the Hope Desire Boots in red and orange. The Desire boot just didn't fit me. I was devastated because they are sooooo sexy. BUT happiness abounds once again. Thanks to the wonderful Voggers in the L.A. and S.F. stores, a pair of Zazas in my size were located in the new Union Square store. I received them yesterday. Knowing I wanted to wear them with light socks and jeans, I grabbed both gray and orange socks--one for each foot. I tried on my Zazas and walked around the house. WOW! How great they felt on my feet. I chose the gray socks because they were the perfect sock weight, threw on an orange jacket, popped a little cuff on my jeans, and headed out on a date to see a 3D film with my beautiful Other person who is the one who gifted me with them. I felt HOT and had a blast munching a mountain of popcorn and hooting it up since we were the only two in the entire cinema. We came home and SHHHHH, don't you tell anyone what happened next. ZOWIE ZAZA!!!!!! Needless, to say my partner and I are smiling really big today. Think I'll bathe my Yorkie and vacuum the house in my new purple and orange Zazas today. Then, I'll prance around in the red light of my darkroom work-work-working to some great music. Here's to making photographs and to John Fluevogs wonderful shoes! Thank you!
