L'inspiration originale derrière la chaussure Guide vient de la fois où John se dirigeait au studio de conception Fluevog pour une réunion et fut confronté par une Guide cherchant à vendre ses biscuits. John, se sentant généreux (et affamé), décida d'acheter plusieurs boîtes de ces délicieux biscuits (on ne connaît toujours pas le chiffre exact), pour les offrir à ses employés dévoués et travaillant. Pendant sa marche, la faim le vainquit, et il a commencé à manger joyeusement. En premier, la boîte menthe et chocolat... ensuite celle des biscuits à la noix de coco... et puis une autre boîte... Par le temps où John arriva au studio, il constata qu'il avait mangé tous les biscuits. Il jeta les boîtes et détruisit toute évidence de ce qui s'appelle désormais « Le grand massacre des biscuits ». Malheureusement pour John, l'histoire fut dévoilée pendant la réunion où tous remarquent sa cravate remplie de miettes de biscuit.
Souriant en pensant à la leçon inestimable qu'il a apprise ce jour-là, John dessina une chaussure pour femme séduisante avec un cuir épais et souple d'une surface perlée, des boucles signées Fluevog, une plateforme cachée faite de liège recyclé, le tout sur une semelle tunite avec une adhérence en caoutchouc. Cette chaussure de style Charles IX version hyper moderne vous offrira une fondation solide pour les défis qui se pointeront (comme ne pas manger tous les biscuits d'un coup sans verre de lait.) Prepare for the Future, choose well today. (Préparez-vous pour l'avenir, faites le bon choix aujourd'hui.)

The angle of the toe swoop makes them fit a half size smaller.

I have a crush on my shoes
I walked into the store in flip flops and out in my fuchsia guides today. The most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet. LOVE. I never thought I would own a pair of fuchsia shoes - so not my color, but these are gorgeous. I also ordered the mini zazas in green/purple from the LA store. I wish I could wear them both at the same time. I doubled my Fluevog collection and I am already obsessing about pair #5.

Heels comfier than some flats?
YES! These shoes are comfy enough to traipse around in all day. I work with children and can go non-stop with these on my tootsies.

happy feet, happy heart
I had been eyeing these longingly and succumbed to the sale price. These beautiful shoes make my feet and my heart happy. The fuschia color is definitely a deep, rich fuschia, not a pastel pink. I usually wear an 8.5 or sometimes 9 in other shoes, and usually wear a 9 in Fluevogs. These fit well in a 9. I have wide-ish feet, but these have enough room across the toes. Very comfortable and easy to walk in, like my other pair in the Prepare family. Service from the NYC store was prompt and helpful, and shipping was super-speedy.

Get noticed everytime
I got these online and sized up by a half-size (I'm normally 6.5 in my Vogs) Wore them on holiday to San Fran and received lots of love & great comments - even had a lady next to me wearing a yellow one during dinner - we became instant friends!! Managed to do 10 days of walking in them right out from the box... many hours of comfort!

Five pair spree
The second pair in my 5 pair spree in Boston. I wore these immediately, bare feet, all day. Not a rub, not a scrape, not a moments discomfort. Great with pants, great with a dress. I even wore these to a graduation ceremony at which I was presiding. A firm favourite.

OMG!! Im in shoe love!
I got my Prepare Guides in black size 10, they are a little tight but are going to stretch out the more I wear them. I got them in the mail on a Thursday night and wore them all day Friday for work.....comfy!
I will defintaly be getting another pair either the pink or turquiose.
Thank you John Fluevog for making great shoes, and thank you Jamie in MN for the help!!

day one, walk blocks!
Walked 10 blocks downtown in my brand new blues and no blisters! These are fabulous and better yet no pain with my bunions. Highly recommend these as your weigh shifts back rather than on to the balls of the feet.

I just worked an 11 hour day in my turquoise Guides. I ran around a lot. I moved furniture. I ran up and down stairs. My feet don't hurt a bit.

I have these shoes in red, black and blue and the boots. I'm now buying the turquoise. They are crazy comfortable, add extra height and are so awesome looking! I get compliments every time I wear them. They fit true to size, I am a 7 and purchased a 7. They fit perfectly. I also have the one with the closed back and love them too!

Loooove these shoes
I bought these in yellow and wore them as a contrast color to black. I got so many great comments on my shoes. This is my 3rd pair of Vogs ad I'm completely in love. Yes, they are pricey but well worth it. Next will be the navy or turquoise
