[Black & Grey]
In the late 1870's shortly after the Gold Rush, teenage prostitute Mollie Johnson arrived in Deadwood. Known as "the Queen of the Blonds," Mollie became the madam to a gaggle of "painted ladies" (one of whom was Ida Clark). In 1878, Mollie got married for the second time in her life to minstrel and comedian Lew Spencer, who was arrested shortly afterwards for shooting his other wife. Legend has it that Mollie disappeared not too soon after with a bag of stolen gold. Using soft, dusty Italian leathers with teardrop cut-out detailing, on a 2.5" Fellowship-hi heel and tunite Bellevue sole, this lace-up Mary Jane is surely looking out for you. Keep pushing west and beyond your imagination.
Sean C. from our New York store says:
Ladies with delicate sensabilities wear this shoe because the laces allow any foot shape to fit perfectly in the Mollie Johnson.

2 weeks ago, I was last-minute invited to an event that merited dressing up. I determined that what was lacking in my wardrobe was a pair of *comfortable* dressy black pumps. This was on a Tuesday, and the event was the next day. So I immediately headed downtown. As always, I stopped at Nordstrom Rack first, and as usual, for a person-spoiled-forever-by-Fluevog, found that everything that fit was either not comfortable or didn't look right. So, across the street to the Fluevog store. I'd been eyeing the black Molly Johnsons on the web site for a while, so went straight to them. They fit like a dream. And, even though I don't normally wear heels this high (ever), the very next day I was able to walk half a mile in them with relative ease. Plus they look fabulous. As with all my Vogs, I got a ton of compliments. So far, they're the only pair of Fluevogs I've bought at full price, and I don't regret a single penny.

These shoes rock my world
These shoes are comfortable and fit like a glove. I can wear them all day and all night. The lace up is a beautiful touch, and honestly, I think that this shoe will make anyone who wears it feel special and sexy!

Classy 1930s shoes
I just went to see The King's Speech, which is set in the 1930s and features King George VI and his wife Elizabeth (played by Helena Bonham Carter). It's a marvelous film, but I kept getting distracted Elizabeth's feet! She wears shoes very similar to the Mollie Johnsons, which I have been ogling for some time. So I finally went out and got them. They are beautiful, elegant, comfortable, and basically all things wonderful. I had to get the black/gray ones, because that is the only colour combination that comes in a size 5 1/2, but that's probably not a bad thing because otherwise I would have had a tough time deciding between the black/gray and the brown/pink.

Best Decision Ever
I love shoes. I knew that when choosing shoes for my wedding, I had to have the perfect pair. I searched up and down to find something that would match my black lace over gray wedding gown and was brought to this site. Of course I couldn't buy just one pair, so I bought two! I chose the Mollie Johnson's for my wedding. I absolutely loved them! The customer service was great and I played in them every night up until my big day. The only change I made to them was putting deep turquoise ribbon laces as my "something blue". I wish I could post a picture to show you all how awesome these shoes went with my gown. I will definitely be buying two pairs of shoes from this site every year! :-D

Thanks to their superb engineering, these heels feel as comfortable as sneakers... and I'm not a high-heel girl.
Thanks to them springing from the fertile mind of John Fluevog, they're super cute... I get admiring comments all day from friends and strangers alike! Adorable with jeans, and dressy for formal: they're really the perfect little shoe.
I'm usually an ideal 7.5, but these run a little big: on me a size 7 fits just right in this style.

The Prettiest Shoes
I'm in love and don't ever want to take these beauties off.

They are marvels of engineering..and beautiful to boot. I never thought I could wear heels this high again, but these work.

Barefoot? With Socks?
These are my first Fluevogs. I bought them at the new Union Square shop. They are so gorgeous, and I am very happy about the unusual colors! But the first time I wore them I got blisters on the tops of my toes. I always wear my shoes barefoot. Do I have to wear stockings with these? The interior leather seems rougher than that of my other shoes. Any thoughts? Maybe for my next pair I should buy up a half size and wear socks!

The black ones now go down to size 5! I'm so happy! These shoes are VERY flattering. I tried them on months ago but to my disappointment, the smallest size was a 6, which was too big. The 5 1/2 is perfect. Hopefully other women will feel the same way, and you will be inspired to offer small sizes in the brown as well...
