La botte Shields a été créée en mémoire de l'auteure canadienne et récipiendaire du prix Pullitzer, Carol Shields qui, avec un esprit réellement fluevoguien, est allée de l'avant dans l'histoire de la littérature avec confiance et sans hésitation. Ce bottillon à enfiler est fait d'un cuir épais et sec avec deux courroies ajustables qui s'enroulent avec des boucles en laiton, un élastique qui s'étire, et un contour en point roulé lui donnant un joli air. Construit sur une plateforme de 1" (2,5 cm), un talon compensé de cuir avec un talon circulaire de 4" (10 cm) avec un sous-bout en tunite. Shields vous inspire à dire ce que vous pensez sans tressaillir. Write down your dreams. (Notez vos rêves.)

Rockin the Burnt Orange
I loved the look of this boot the moment I saw it, especially in the burnt orange. Had to go up 1/2 size and have to fight a bit to get them off my feet after wearing for a few hours but it is worth it! Looks great with tights, skinny jeans and even boot cut (although you don't get to see enough of the boot ). I feel like a super tall rock star in these boots!!! If you buy them, get ready for the compliments!

These boots are so cool and unique; the burnt orange colour is fantastic and perfect for fall. I usually wear a 10, in these I had to go up to an 11. The heel/balance takes some getting used to, but I was surprised how wearable they are for having such a wicked heel. Gorgeous - love them!

I'm really upset to have to say this, but out of the three pairs of Fluevogs I own, this is the only pair I'm unable to wear! I wear a size 10 1/2 to an 11 at the biggest, and even after switching to a 12 I can't stand to have these pretty boots on for more than 30 minutes, or else I lose ALL circulation to my feet! They squeeze way too tight for me to even stand wearing them, which is unfortunate, since I spent a boat load of money on them. (:`(

These boots make me feel like a rock star! I have pretty standard size 7.5 feet, and usually wear a size 8 for most Fluevogs. Nevertheless, I took the friendly salesperson's advice and ordered a size 7 in these boots because she said they ran large. The size 7 is pretty much perfect. I can wear them with thin socks. 8 would have been too big. One of the boots feels a little bit snug, width-wise, but I think a few more days of wear will take care of that.

An awesome addition to my wardrobe!
I've been eyeing these boots for a while so when they finally went on sale, I pounced! Since the shoes are in whole sizes, I had to order up. When they arrived, I was afraid I'd have to return or exchange them because the shoes were just too roomy.
In both times that I called a store to ask about my shoes, the Fluevog staff were so patient, helpful and informative. Per their suggestions, an insert improve the fit. The upper part of the boots are still very loose with my ankles, but I have tiny ankles and the fit doesn't hinder my walking.
After hours of being on my feet in these shoes, my feet do get sore, but on most days shorter periods are fine and I've gotten loads of compliments. The boots are versatile and are perfect whenever my outfit could use a pop of color and a bit of attitude.
*An FYI though, be careful if you want to use a waterproofing spray on your new boots- the spray darkened the color of my boots slightly but they still have a rich burnt orange hue to them.

These are my Rock Star boots. I bought them in orange to match a dress and they look AMAZING. I wear a 9 1/2 in the Operetta Malibrans and I was advised to purchase a 10 in these. They are narrow in the toe but wide in the ankle. I wouldn't recommend walking a marathon in them, but for a heel this size they are reasonably comfortable. The wedge, while not reaching all the way to the floor, still gives a lot of stability to this boot that it wouldn't otherwise have. Not to mention I feel very sexy and powerful whenever I wear these. I'm quite glad I purchased them. :-D

These are my third pair of Fluevogs and I LOVE them. They make me feel sexy & powerful and look amazing with skinny jeans. The heel reminds me of a shark fin. I bought size 7 as I am a 6 1/2 and they fit great.

These shoes make me SO happy!
:-D I knew the moment I saw these shoes online that I had to have them. Nevermind that I'm a hot 63 years old, they were calling my name. On 1st wear they required a little adjustment of center of gravity, but with continued wear I've becomed more accustomed to them. These shoes are so gorgeous and so sexy that women holler at me on the escalator at work and want to know where I bought them. A couple of men have noticed them (for their wives). I didn't exactly walk a mile the first time I wore them-as other Vogs- but I made it through a day at work with no pain! There's just something special about a bootie with a freaky wedge and straps that wrap your ankles. I purchased the orange shoes. Theyre perfect with jeans or a business suit (if you enjoy mixing it up), their walk speaks way way louder than any words you could say!

Love, love, love these!
Bought the brown ones in Boston with the help of a lovely sales associate named Pete. They're fantastic! My new daily ass-kicking shoes. They look great with everything and step up a basic t-shirt and jeans outfit to something special. They fit a little snug but the buckles on the straps can be adjusted until you break them in. I wear heels every day and these are a piece of cake to walk in!
I've gotten so may compliments on these too! they're a subtly cool boot! Maybe a bit more obvious in orange ;)
Btw, if you've never had a Fluevog experience in person, you really need to- they know what they're talking about and are genuinely there to help. Pete entertained my indecisiveness for the hour I was there and brought me shoe after shoe to try on without one whiff of being annoyed with me :)

It's all in the details
My favorite detail on this boot has to be the heel. I have never seen anything like this on a shoe/boot before. Second to that would be the straps and whipstitching. I love that there are details that are not covered up by the hems of my boot cut jeans. And, as always, these shoes are comfortable, I can walk in them all day and not feel like I've been in heels all day. Sizing advice: If you are 1/2 size, size up.
