The only shoe I wear for 15 hrs straight
This is my 13th year wearing the same pair of Derby Swirl Boots with Angel souls. Made in Mexico, they were comfy since hour one. Maybe girls fit these better than boys? The stitching started coming apart at the seams and sole within the first year and I worried they would fall apart eventually and 13 yrs later they are still delightful and intact. Now I will order a new sole and also a new pair. Love these boots.

Working angel style
I positively LOVE these boots. I first got them 3 years ago or so and they took forever to wear in, which a friend had mentioned to me they would. So after wearing them for two weeks straight and surviving many a blisters I put them on one morning and by the end of the day I realized these were the most comfortable pair of shoes in the world!
I wear them everyday to work in a busy restaurant kitchen and they hold up strong to whatever gets spilled on them (be it blood or molten sugar), they keep my feet safe and my soles don't hate me at the end of the day... Thank you fluevog, Think I might try the Banker style next when (if) these ever wear out.

I have bought this particular pair a few times, first time in 1995. They lasted a lil'over 4 years. By the time of the second pair Fluevog was now using a leather fromm Mexico and not from Poland which made the leather tough, very hard on the feet to break-in. I refused this pair and insisted on the ORIGINAL leather [exceptional leather is why I chose Fluevogs in the first place] Since then I always make sure. Read the leather stamps and make sure you get what you pay for. I have had shoes made for me in the past and I can tell you with certainty that a well made pair of shoes should not blister your feet. Stll Fluevogs are one of my favorite off the rack shoes. By the way I always buy mine from the Seattle store.
