The Kanawa is a luscious calf-high boot in the Hopeful Family: a hybrid family using the last, fit, and soles of The Hope Family, the leathers of The Prepare Family, and the 2.25" leather wrapped heels of The Thanks Family - talk about a threesome! Featuring a soft rubber sole, pebbled Portuguese leathers, YKK inside zippers, and a natural footshape, The Kanawa sings songs softly for the entire World. F is for all things Hope.
Ali from our New York store says:
Runs pretty short; most people bump up a 1/2 size. The calf runs mostly true to narrow.

Wore them out of the store
I bought these at Gastown. I was about to pay for the Caravaggios and the Sharanpal when another client was trying these on. I had seen them when I came in and Wes asked if I wanted to try them on, but I said no thinking about the $$$ I was about so spend.After I saw how they look on I had to try them. One look and they had to be mine! I wore them out of the store,walked around Gastown, Robson, Granville and they felt great! I went with a size 8 as with all my boots. The heel feels solid and comfortable, the leather is very supple and thick and that fold over on the instep looks great when you have them on. I've wanted green boots for a while, wish Fluevog made more in this colour!

Oh. Oh. Oh. Get these. I bought the green pair this past August in the Granville St. store (and thanks to the patient young gent who brought out a billion boxes of boots for me to try on. Well, at least ten).
They were really not what I had been looking for, (was thinking tall lace-ups but don't have the patience after all!) and once my foot got in there that was it. They look amazing with absolutely everything, the leather was supple and didn't require any breaking in, and they are incredibly comfortable (hard to find shoes for this high-arched girl). Very, very pleased.

If you try these on, you won't want to take them off....great fit, feel and work with anything, a classic!
