During a recent trip to Berlin, where John was initially drawn by the burgeoning modern art scene, he found himself mesmerized by the ultra-functional urbanity. After seeing many architectural inspirations, John drew up the designs for a simple, but functional chelsea bootie on the comfy custom molded Wearever sole. Featuring smooth grained, veggie-tanned leathers and a pebbled strap on a sturdy 2" heel, the Danke will walk with you, wearever you roam.

As an Australian RM Williams boot tragic, I'm hard to please when it comes to elastic-sided boots. These are really elegant and fit like a glove. I love the "round" elastic bits! I think people with wide feet might not find them wide enough. They're true to size for me, a bit roomy at the narrow toe. Now I want them in brown! They could have done with a front tab to match the back, as they're fairly tight to slip on.

The Toronto store didn't get these for some reason (??!!) so I had to order them sight unseen and untried.
I love them. They fit true to size and don't crowd my toes.
They're very comfy, stable and stylish.
My favourite shoes until I get my Adrian Nuni's (I hope they have those at the T.O. store!!!)

I get more mileage out of these boots...
I bought my Dankes about 3 years ago when the style was first introduced (mine are dark navy with smoke gray heels). I went into the SF store thinking I was getting a different pair of 'Vogs, but these won out over 15 other pairs that I tried on. I was NOT disappointed! I have worn these to dinners, concerts, meetings, traveling... they just keep on going! The heel height is *just right*, even for standing and walking for long periods of time. They look great with tights, socks, dresses, slacks, jeans... whatever. I just purchased the Wearever Tav sandals because I love the last and the heel shape / height so much that I wanted a pair to wear during warmer weather. LOVE THESE!! My favorite Fluevogs EVER in my 16 years of collecting and wearing 'Vogs!

Stylish and comfy - how can it be??
Can't believe how comfortable these boots are. I own many good-quality flat shoes that aren't as comfy as these. On my first wearing, I walked for about an hour and felt like I was walking on air. Great fit and great style. Compliments galore! They fit true to size and are slightly narrow, so order up a size if you have wide feet. For me and my very narrow foot, they are perfect. Danke for my Wearever Danke! :)

I get more use out of this boot than pretty much any other footwear I own. I love these boots! They look great at work, going out, when I'm going to be on my feet a lot...
They also fit my narrow foot quite nicely.

don't miss out on the Brown sale!
I have them in black and loved them so much I got them in Brown. It really is a great sale price. I love how they fit, and the black ones are really helpful when you need to "dress-up" for work in Cleveland winter. My only complaint is that they switched from the leather boot-pull to the fabric logo boot-pull. It kind of diminishes the dressy-potential of the boots a bit. I mean I get the logo pull on the more casual styles (branding and whatnot), but yeah, a little out of place on these IMO. Obviously though, I still bought two pairs. :-)

Finding shoes for me is difficult... bad back, big bony arched feet... These shoes? Fantastic! My office has a polished cement floor (yeah yeah, really sleek, but really bad on my back...) and while my co-workers clackity-clack their way around the office, I get to glide through with these amazing soles... Great while travelling too! Slip them off, slip them on, and you're ready to go! Great job, F! ]:o)

Casual, dressy, stylish and cozy
I've loved my Fluevogs for nearly 20 years. Just traveled back to SF and found these Wearevers and love them. They are as cozy as they are styling. I can't wait to wow my friends back home, and kick things up with my newest Fluevogs. Love the color, style and feel. ,->

My dear husband gave me these boots last year for Christmas. These are the best shoes I've ever worn, bar none, and worth every penny. They're comfortable, walkable all day, go with everything I wear. I normally wear and 8.5 or 9, the 9's fit me perfectly. I love the soft leather lining. They make my sensitive and finicky feet very happy. Very well made. A couple of days ago, I inadvertantly subjected these boots to an extreme test. I was on my way downstairs to meet my husband for "playtime". It was dark, I was carrying too much (lube, pipe, towels, etc.) and I misjudged where the stairs started by half a foot length. When I realized I was going down, I had to choose whether to fall (very bad, lots of pain) or jump (maybe less bad, possibility of less pain). I made a spectacular leap down the six stairs, expecting I would break either my ankle or the heel of my treasured boots (a tragic choice, but better than my ankle). I give credit to these fantastic boots that I did neither, landing solidly on one foot without rolling my ankle at all, and the heel is still sturdy and undamaged. Danke, Danke. I am indeed giving thanks to be walking, and still have my most favorite boots of all time. (Until later today, perhaps ... my husband and I are going Christmas shopping. First stop - the Gastown store.)

I am in mad love with these boots.
The day I purchased them, I put them on immediately, and did about 5 hours of shopping, walking the pavement. No problem. The happiest feet on earth. And so uniquely stylish at the same time? It shouldn't even be legal to look that cool.
My other boots are likely to gather some dust now.
