An iconic Fluevog line from the 80s, popularized by its distinctive pointed toe shape, The Swordfish has been re-imagined by John into this killer boot. Using tough, aged Texas leathers, tunite soles, instep zippers, straps and buckles, it's no wonder The Swordfish are cherished and collected by rockstars everywhere. The Edwardian Hamburger also includes a 3.5" leather-wrapped Cuban heel that brings the Fluevog flair way over-the-top.
When asked to name this wild design, John remarked how the boot could have been worn in the 18th century, but with a modern Americanized glam heel... "it's like it was from the Edwardian Age... but also modernized American.. like Apple Pie or Hamburgers... I know, I'll call it THE EDWARDIAN HAMBURGER!" Stay Sharp!

These are truly wicked shoes. Transformative. The sort that shifts a mood. I had to have them. The toe bump is totally necessary at this heel height--it makes room for the toe as it slides forward in the shoe, when walking. Not so sure about the all-day walking in 3.5 inch heels, as others have said. As I sez, I had to have them, and wanted to believe that they were all-day wear. They're more comfortable than most heels, but between the height and the pointy toe, they're not for the faint of foot. <-)

Wear these boots! They add the perfect rock n' roll touch.
Considering how "out-there" these look in the pictures, they are surprisingly not weird on your feet. They are an awesome combination of stylish, tough, and sexy. The black are cool, but the burgundy ones are even better. They are made to go with denim -- skinnies, bootcuts, straight legs -- it all works. Add a tight tee shirt and a stylish blazer and you're good to go. Plus they make a satisfying click-click-click noise when you walk. Let 'em all know you're coming! Cause they're going to notice. And their eyes will pop a little.
As for fit: I found them true to size, both length- and width-wise. They are marked as having a 3.5" heel, but it doesn't feel like it. I can walk all day in these.

Just the way I want them, ...
Got them last week, I first thought that they were lost at customs.
My size is a men's 7 1/2 so I ordered on advice a size 8. the first two days they were a bit tight in the front, but after the second day they already settled quite well.
I just love the way they look. I like the Gothic / Punk style combined with a heel which for men is over the top.
At the office you cannot go unnoticed anymore, though my colleagues are used me seeing on heeled boots very regularly.
Combined with skinny trousers they really stand out, ... Keep them coming, and especially with the heels. :-D
As for a male it's very hard to find decent high heeled boots to wear on a regular basis. ,-)
The ULTIMATE Rock & Roll Sh*tkickers!
These could be nicknamed "Lemmy".
I'd been lusting over the Edwardian Hamburgers..... And then the Mpls store opened!
They excitedly had them sent from the Chicago store... I'm a size 11 but they advised me to order a 12- perfect!
They came today...
My Edwardian Hamburgers are black. I immediately envisioned these with my Dogpile "Joey Ramone" skinny black jeans.
..........Add a biker jacket, hop on the Harley and turn the Motörhead up to 11... HELL YEAH! >-)

Got these yesterday and initially thought the wrong size had been sent. Turns out a mans 8 is a woman's 10. I could not get into them. Fast forward overnight: they defrosted (!)!and hey presto, fit perfectly. Moral of story: when living in MN, warm up your shoes before trying on... ]:o) ps I'm usually a standard 9.5

These are the 2nd pair of Fluevogs I've ever owned. I tried them on in the Vancouver store but wasn't ready to throw down 360 bones just yet.
I'm a women's size 12 in the normal shoe world but discovered that i would need a size 13 in fluevogs (guys... you really need to fix your footlasts >-( ).
Once my order arrived I began having second thoughts. These make your feet look soooo long :-( ...
I still like the gothy, edgy-ness they bring though. I'll wear them around the house a bit more before I decide if they're keepers

Oh John, you satan, you saint!
Bought these last weekend at my local Fluevoggery in WashDC and have been waiting for their appearance on the website so I could "SQUEEEEEEE!" a review: SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Have wanted a pair of Swordfish since the very beginning, but for one lame reason or another, never took the hook. Well, I have now and I'm never going back! These boots are comfortable, quality, rock with a short skirt or skinny cords, and turn heads wherever I strut. The combination of full front zip with straps, the underslung heel, and the heavenly bizarre toe construction is devilishly divine. My feet love these boots and now I love my feet! Mine are burgundy--love the contrast with the black straps--and are both raw and elegant, something John's designs often accomplish. How does he do it?! No matter: keep 'em coming, sir!
