Love them but I'm sad!
I regret that my 16 year long devotion to Fluevog is in question over a purchase I made of a pair of Bondgirls in a delicious wine hue. I love these boots SO much and wear them as often as I can, but just like a previous commenter, within the first two months of wearing them I had to bring them in because the zipper on the right boot blew out at the very bottom. Now, five months later, the left boot is having the same trouble. I'm hoping when I bring them in that the store will replace the zipper without charging me for the repair (they said the boots were still under warranty last time, but I'm concerned that it's been 7 months now), but more than that I'm hoping that you will ask your suppliers to improve the quality of the zippers so this doesn't happen to other people.
I have been a Fluevog devotee since I bought my first pair of oxblood knee high Angel boots when I was 16. I expect these shoes to last for years and years given the promised quality and the price. I'm so sad that I have to keep bringing these in for repairs, mostly because it means up to 2 weeks without wearing my favorite pair of boots! :-(

Hi Emily, please bring them into a Fluevog store as soon as you can so that they can be fixed under the warranty. Thanks!

I want these...
I tried these boots on at Gravity Pope in Calgary. I had asked for a size 7. The clerk brought me a 5 telling me that that's the UK size for 7 in the US. The calf did not fit at all. I was wondering if the sizing is right... I previously posted this comment to the wrong boot
Reply from Greg at Fluevog:
The Bondgirls are marked in UK sizing, (UK+2=Women's size), so you might have gotten the right size. However, the calves in this boot are very narrow, but can be stretched significantly (up to 2"). You might want to bring them back to the store, and see what the staff can do to make them more comfortable/stretch them for you.
skinny legs and all
Well, all of these reviews are not kidding on two counts: 1) these are totally hot boots, and 2) they are very, very slim in the calf. I'm quite petite and have slender-yet-athletic legs, and had to have them stretched before I could even dream of zipping them completely. I'm still in the phase where I'm wearing them around the house for a few more minutes every day. I continue to have faith that the rest of these reviews are true and I'll be able to wear them without feeling my pulse eventually, and I look forward to that. The things we do for beauty....

I bought myself the burgandy Bond Girls for my birthday last summer, and a better present could not be had! They fit my calves like a dream, and look fantastic with jeans, short plaid schoolgirl skirts, and dresses. I just got back from a week in NYC, and walked miles in them everyday, always comfortable, and always envied by my girlfriends. I even wore them with a fancy dress to the theatre and they looked great! Love em, love em, love em! (and I'm 45, btw...)

Bought these at a thrift shop in Brooklyn for $20...A STEAL! They were exactly my size and already broken in, just beautiful. I wear them constantly. Never gonna give 'em up!

Still going strong
I bought my Bondgirls in 2005 and have worn them at least twice a week ever since. They are still the most comfortable boots I've ever owned and they fit like a glove. I've kept them well-polished, and after 6 years of solid wear, all they need are some in-soles and a minor repair on the buckle. I love these boots!
Just be honest with yourself about your calf/foot size. I've got medium width feet and fairly muscular calves, and these babies hug my legs like a second skin. Note the calf measurements on the description and measure before you buy.

tall and black
Just bought these in a size 8. Lovely and look awesome on. Warning: these boots are only for those with narrow feet and small calfs. I have a very narrow foot, A or double A (it's been a while since I had them measured) and I have a tough time getting my foot in the boot and the boot is snug around my calfs which are 33cm at the thickest. So these tall beauties are perfect for me but not for everyone.

The color green is fantastic & I can wear them with skinny jeans or any sweet skirt....
Love the way the buckles clink clink clink as I walk.

Not everything I'd hoped for
After reading so many fabulous reviews, and my friend who swears by her own pair I bought myself a pair last February. I have "athletic calves" (read: large) so I had to get the boot stretched to fit comfortably.
My problem is the zipper on one of the boots bursts open every so often about 3 months into owning the boot (randomly but not always) -- I later put them into storage for the summer and brought them back out this winter, and the issue became worse because the zipper would burst the moment I put the boot on and stood. I'm guessing the leather has also tightened up without use over the summer is what made the situation worse.
I did bring the boots in for warranty, and unfortunately it has not solved the issue. So not only am I out $390 (tax), I had the worse experience with the rep who I dropped off and picked my shoes up from. It's nice to know you're only a valued customer when you are buying.
While I still think the shoes look great, they don't do me much good sitting on the rack. My advice, unless the boot fits you perfectly with little stretching required, I would consider getting a shorter boot if you won't be wearing it all year round to keep them soft. While I won't be shopping with Fluevog anymore, my friend still loves her pair, so that's got to be something right?
