Another addition to the popular Prepare Family, The Portage is the bringing together of a classic fisherman sandal upper and our unconventional, much-loved Prepare construction. The top caging offers a slightly more closed-in option for those who want a breathable, light shoe without having an open toe. With vibrant Portuguese leathers this sandal will transition from the warmth of the summer sun to the chillier seasons, and the addition of some funky socks can give you a variety of looks that only you could pull off. Prepare for the Future, choose well today.

I am 5'5 3/4 in these beauties!
Scored a pair of these beauties, in black, at the sample sale on June 1. After gloating about my score on various social media outlets, complete with pictures, I wore them to a baseball fundraiser. Made sure to wear capri's to show off their striking and unusual beauty. And not only am I tall(er) but the thick straps make them super secure. My feet were pain-free all night. Which never happens in a 4' inch heel...unless their a Fluevog heel of course!

The lilacs are in bloom again.
I am a Prepare family addict: own Guides, Merits, Volunteers, plus Prepare-Hi Rappels and two pair Steadys--so it's no shock I sauntered into ChiTown yesterday to get a pair of lilac Portages. I knew they would be comfortable (I have a 9 5/8 inch foot so I took an 8 1/2 in the Portage) and easy to move in, and I knew they'd make me smile with their sassy recurved heels and fisherman sandal toes. What I was not expecting was how they'd take 50 years off my life, rocketing me back to age six and my first pair of easter Mary Janes, which I adored. The color is like those malted milk robins egg candies that you lick and then paint your lips with, turning into a blue- or purple-mouthed genie with a lifetime of wishes ahead. I have Spring in my stride thanks to Saint John, and with these fabulous chaussures to "portage" me over the rough spots, my heart simply floats along.

My feet are celebrating today...purple, hyper comfortable, with a wonderful feel. I wore them through ORD, found them to be a comfortable walking shoe and was stopped 3X by people wanting to complement these shoes! Fluevog did it again!
