You're never to old to enjoy the sound of leaves crackling under your feet, and Serene is a boot that will happily accommodate that melody. This mid-shin lace up boot has a Hope rubber sole, a 2.25" leather wrapped heel from The Thanks Family, and a convenient YKK inside zipper that is super adjustable. The soft matte Portuguese leather, borrowed from The Prepare Family, has been buffed at the toe and heel to give an aged patina. So slip them on and head for the biggest adventure you can find. Happy crackling. F is for all things Hope.

A nice, wide toe box and laces that allow for adjustments in the fit. Like its Hopeful Family members, they're a little short in length so that some people will want to go up half a size. A fantastic boot for all different kinds of feet!

Can I just tell you, these babies are amazing! I usually go up a half size in fluevog, but these fit true to size- no breaking in needed! Almost immediately, I got several compliments. They take me everywhere- from casual strolls to dancing to climbing rocks on the beach!

Slipper comfort, gorgeous boots!
These are the boots I forget I have on when I get home from work. They are nicely squishy, perfectly shaped in the toe box, work on my feet all day and be a mom all afternoon, and then go dancing all night boots. Summers are too hot here for these, so the Ease might be in my future, unless John designs a Hopeful with a toe wrap. Hint.

They are awesome
Gorgeous fun and walk-all-day comfortable. I wear a 10 in other shoes mind a ten in operettas but chose a 10.5 I these for a little more room with a sock. I have slightly wide toes, slightly narrow heels and high arches and these are my most comfortable boots ever.

Love these boots!!
I bought the burgundy boots in my usual size 8, and I love them so much that I went back downtown to buy the black ones! They are super cute with skinny jeans and skirts!

A great basic boot with an extremely comfortable walking heel and cushy soles, lovely thick leather--I'm a big fan of the Hopeful family. The zipper is a nice touch for convenience but I'd rather they were just a lace-up. I got my usual Hopeful size of 8, perfect with tights or thin to medium socks.

Love these super comfortable boots
I love these boots! The heels cup my heels like nothing ever has. I bought my usual non-Fluevog size. The only thing I do not like is that the laces often come undone. Great color and very cozy.

Nice look but too short
These boots are my 5th Fluevogs over a couple of decades. I LOVE the look of these boots. They are like my beloved borough--hip and edgy. I like the room in the toe box however I went up a full size and still find that my big toe hits the edge of the boot. I wish they were sized more accurately :(.

Finally, a cute boot that's wide enough!
I have loved Fluevogs for the last 20 years but have always managed to talk myself out of buying a pair due to the price. Now that I have 2 small boys to keep up with (and my feet have changed in both size and width) I need footwear that fits well and lasts, no more cheap shoes for me! The Hopeful Serene in burgundy was my first purchase and a month and a half later I am still thrilled! My toes did hit the end of the boot in my usual size 9 but a 9.5 is perfect. The width is just right, no pinching or squeezing. Finally, a boot that fits right out of the box, no breaking in needed! Thank you for making your footwear stylish and functional.

fantastic fit and comfort
I added these to my Fluevog addiction recently when in Toronto. We do not have a store in Victoria BC.... YET. ( I am working hard to change this..ahem, attention John, we need a store here ) so took advantage whilst in the Big city.
The boots were comfy immediately. The 10.5 fit well on my wide feet and high arches, as sometime boots do not go over the top of my foot comfortably.
I wore them out that evening to the opening of the David Bowie exhibit, and wandered for hours, feet happy, compliments, and feeling a lot taller and groovier.
Thank you to the gang at the Distillery Store and especially Brian at Queens W store, who made a convert out of my mother with aging ballerina feet, who also came away with her first Fluevogs.
These boots rock..just get them.

I absolutely Fell in love with these boots! I saw them online but so much better in personae. They fit well. The toe box is def wide which I prefer. I did.go a half size up because my normal size 8 was too snug that my big toe was hitting the boot. The heels a perfect height too! Love the rubber sole too!
