My 5th pair?
I've lost count. Anyway, got these in the gray first -- SUPER comfortable. Summer trip to San Francisco -- freezing (duh) -- needed something not sandals. Marched into the brand-new JF near Union Square and didn't think twice about these in the black. My first Fluevogs in a conservative color, and they're great. IF I had to nitpick, I wouldn't mind if the cutout in the front were a teeny bit higher -- even the littlest ped sock shows in the summer. But adorable with tights. I love the whole Operetta family - perfect heel height and thickness for running around all day. Do use a shoehorn -- I'm lazy sometimes about it, and I kick myself every time. Want these to last forever!

my first pair
these were my first pair of fluevogs and i love them. they were comfortable from the outset, and go with everything (i got the black). i love how they add a little sassiness to my conservative work wardrobe.

Every January the man and me go through this crazy shoe hording phase, spending our tax refunds before they even come on well crafted amazing (and expensive) shoes that we normally can't afford, and this was the year I decided to splurge on my Fluevogs. After much debating, I decided to go with the red Guilias in my normal size 10. They were pretty tight, but after wearing them around the house all weekend and rubbing lots of leather lotion into the areas where they were the tightest, they broke in very nicely. A week later I was still drooling over the black ones so I called the wonderful people at the Chicago store and had them ship me the black ones - this time in a 10.5. The 10.5 fit a little better....less breaking in time then the 10....and I could wear them all day right out of the box. I would definitely order up a size if you don't want to go through the trouble of breaking in a tight pair of shoes (and believe me, these are so cute and attention grabbing that you will want them on your feet immediately and all day long!) :-D

I am in love
...with these boots! Actually I am now in love with Fluevogs in general. Until recently I had never owned a pair, although as a born-and-bred Vancouverite I have seen and admired them on other people's feet since my teen years. Then I bought the Giulias (pearl gray with brown buttons) and my feelings about the the Fluevog brand went from casual appreciation to fervent support! These booties have it all: style (sweet yet sexy), versatility (they go with pretty much everything I own) and above all comfort. (I generally don't wear heels because they are often uncomfortable, but you could almost go jogging in the Giulias. Really). Oh, and for those of you who are interested, these fit me perfectly in my regular size, which is 6. On the strength of my love for these booties, I went out and bought a pair of Malibrans and Libby Smiths, which are also awesome but deserve separate reviews.

Absolutely LOVE this short boot. I didn't need any shoes at all, but came across the Seattle store and couldn't resist. They're not only stylish and fun, they're comfortable beyond belief and also very quiet. I am a total Fluevog convert!

Went to they gym at lunch today and arrived back at my desk to see a wonder, my new Giulia's. Took off my pointy toes immediately and slipped into red heaven for the rest of the day. Going to be a great year!!!! ]:o)

My Giulia boots arrived today. They are amazing!! Because I have a high instep, I ordered a half size larger. Perfect! Also, as with any good shoe, use a shoehorn as to not break down the heel backs.

Dear goodness these shoes are genius! The grey have a strong character that none the less goes with everything. But it's the comfort which has me converting to the all Fluevog diet! Now, to get my hands on some more... :-)

These boots stop traffic
Really, these boots stop traffic! I have them in red. On the way to work this morning, a car stopped, and the driver let me walk in front of him before he turned. Then he rolled down the window and exclaimed, "Nice Shoes!" before continuing on his way. They're also incredibly comfortable. I have a half hour walking commute and then am on my feet all day. I'm normally a size 9, but the 9 1/2s fit perfectly because this boot runs a half size small.

These are my first pair of Fleuvogs and I absolutely LOVE them!!! I ordered the brown pair and now that I have enjoyed them so far, I am in need of the wine pair! I can see how addicting they are. So amazingly comfortable and cute of course!
