Adorable, but yeah, the soles.
I've had these for about 2 years. They're one of the cutest pairs of shoes I've ever seen, much less owned, and I get compliments every time I wear them. And unlike some other women's Fluevogs, they are a good fit for my wide-ish feet. The soles are the frustrating part. The rubber seems to be on sort of crooked - especially on the heels. Also, I discovered that the wood on the heels is veneer when it started peeling up a little bit from the sole part. While I get that they are repair-able, sending them off to the Fluevog hospital seems like a potentially expensive-postage hassle--particularly considering that they are $300 shoes. Really really cute $300 shoes.

I love these boots so much it's hard to put into words. Let's see... they're eye-catching on the foot, no matter WHAT kind of clothes you choose to wear them with. I get comments on them EVERY time I wear them.

A girl's best friend!
I lucked into these puppies in black when they first came out over 2 years ago. I almost cried with joy, instead of the usual pain I experience when wearing heels on my bunion-bound dogs. I've made tracks on the streets of Vancouver, Seattle, Paris and Saskatoon in these lovelies and have become so loyal, I had to buy them in red as well! Hmm, which colour will I bite on next? Yes, I am like a dog with a bone - Giulias are girl's best friend!

my GOD i love these boots!
These boots are a dream - so super-comfy that I think I could probably sleep in them, and so unbelievably cool that people on the street have stopped me to ask where I got them (yes, for real!). What the heck are you waiting for? These are your boots!

why do they fall apart so quickly?
I coveted these boots, I bought these boots, I ADORED these boots, and yes, random strangers stop you EVERYWHERE and ask about them, and yes, they are the most comfortable shoes ever to glorify my feet. But I babied these things, and still the sole is falling apart and a button has fallen off. I don't know that the buttons are replaceable, and for as much money as I paid - well worth it, had they not self-destructed - it's pretty disappointing. I hadn't even worn them a year. Cry :(

All the John Fluevog stores have replaceable buttons, heel lifts, and heels, so please contact a store to keep your shoes in great shape. The stores even have a cobbler that repair almost anything for you.

These are my favourite pair of shoes - extremely comfortable and amazingly versatile (jeans, skirts, dress pants). I can walk in them for hours. I ALWAYS travel with them. I have a wide foot and they fit well. They did need to be re-heeled after a year of constant wear but I really think that's to be expected of shoes that I wear every day. I took them in to the Fluevog store and they had them back to me in 3 days. LOVE them!

LOVE. FOR. GULIA...
I love and adore these ridiculously comfortable shoes! I have other Vogs in my collection, including a pair of tall boots from the Operetta family. They are also VERY comfortable. The Operetta family is fantastic!
Sadly: My first pair of Gulias lost a button cap (leaving the metal below exposed, and thus, leaving the shoe unwearable), and just recently, one of the elastic straps broke on my second pair! I'm still trying to figure out how to fix that... As mentioned in one of the other reviews on these shoes, do note that they take some working in if you have a high arch. I DO have a high arch, and I figure this is why I was struck by the tradgedy of a broken elastic. (:`( NO problems with the soles on either pair #1 or pair #2. They are fantastic for summer (yes, we do get summer here...and quite warm, thank you very much!) and/or for a Yellowknife winter. Gloriously beautiful shoes. Despite issues, they are marvelous!

Oh the lovely Giulia boots. We love them too. :)
All of our stores have cobblers than can fix and repair Fluevogs, and I would recommend you contact, and send your shoes to one of our stores. They have the replacement buttons, and can fix the elastic quite easily.

I LOVE GIULIA
Yep - its official. These are my all time favourites. We're coming into summer now though so I may have to give them a well earned rest. I have worn them to death for a year and just had new heels put on so they're ready for another year when the weather cools down. I wore them just about every day. They seemed to suit every occasion - casual, formal - I wore them to a wedding with a black embroidered wrap skirt and I wore them to the shops to get a coffee! These shoes know no bounds!

Love this bootie, had to have her in RED. Super comfy and classic. I can dress up or down and ware them for hours and hours. Only problem is they are so cute I look at my feet instead of where I am going....

Love 'em, But need to replace soles!
I love these shoes sooooo much, I have worn them 6 days a a week for 1.5 years. Unfortunately, I need to resole them already and Fluevog only sells the heel replacement, not the entire shoe sole replacement. I am debating whether to pay a cobbler to hand-make another pair of soles, or to buy a new pair. Buy these shoes, but be warned: you will need to replace them in 2 years if you wear them everyday.

Hello Brianna - so glad you love the Giulias so much (Fluevogs love to be loved). As you know, the Operettas have a soft rubber sole, which makes them outrageously comfortable, but also can wear quicker than a harder sole. Any cobbler will be able to resole them easily with a thin, soft Vibram sole. If you have any questions on how to do this, or to have one of our Fluevog-approved cobblers do this for you, contact one of our stores.
