This legendary 2.5 heeled maryjane was inspired by Maria Malibran, one of the most famous opera singers of the 19th century, who was known for her extraordinary flexibility, range, and power. With soft leathers in Baccarat Patent or matte Dragon, soft rubber soles, and a leather wrapped heel, this shoe could possibly be the most functional and comfortable Fluevog ever. The Malibran will be your everyday, dress-up, dress-down, favourite pair of shoes perfect for anything and everything (which is almost impossible). Half sizes available.
Ali from our New York store says:
The Malibran will get you to where you are going with ease and style! This last runs as true as you can get! The toe box can be short on some people with longer toes, so maybe try a half size up if you think you may fit that description.

I bought these shoes in NYC back in March and love them. They were not heard to break in at all. I actually walked around the city in them without cursing the shoe gods. I might have to get another pair seeing how I am going to wear these suckers out....

Feminine Shoes You Can Run In!
I think these are the most flattering pair of shoes I've ever owned. The picture doesn't do them justice. There is something really beautiful about the way they hold your foot. I'm not usually vain, but when I'm wearing these I just can't stop looking at my feet. And I'm constantly on the look out for a mirror! It's weird. But great! And they seem to have the same effect on other people. A woman at a seminar the other day came up to me and said - "I've been completely distracted all morning by your shoes!" And the heel is really comfortable. I can walk or run in them for hours!

Cherry Red Malibran's
I fell in love with these shoes when I saw a green pair on a model on the cover of Common Ground magazine last December when I was in Vancouver. When I saw the Red ones in the shop on Granville I was even more smitten.

Gotta Love it
I was fortunate to get married last year when Fluevog was custom making this shoe in white. I hate white shoes and did not plan wearing my shoes all night....but with my beautiful Malibran shoes I danced the whole night away and was never uncomfortable!! I love these shoes! They even look great with jeans. Now that is something to be said about shoes that look great in a wedding dress or with Jeans!

Malibrans are the Bomb!
Wow, these by far are my favorites, and when this happens with a Vog, I get 'em in multiples..I now feel giddy about the yellow ones...The burgundy's I got for Valentines Day and the first pair are brown..I always get compliments when I wear them, and they go with many style oevres. As one who is shy in "HEELS" mode, these are VERY comfortable!!

Without a doubt, the best shoe I have ever owned. I've had them for two years & love them every bit today as I did when I first purchased them.

I bought the black Malibran almost two years ago and I remember the day I found them. I couldn't believe the way they fit like a glove, so comfortable that I almost forgot I had shoes on...except that I couldn't stop gazing at how freaking cute they are! I have worn them most days to work and they have performed like the workhorse they are. They last and last. Lately I have a hankering for A LOT more Fluevogs. I absolutely have to have the Zaza and I really want the yellow and red Malibrans. One can never have enough Fluevogs. Get some and you'll see what all the fuss is about! :-D

Best Shoes Ever!
I received these shoes today, and I am more than impressed. I purchased a pair of Fluevog boots a couple of years ago and have already worn out the insides, so I have scoured the website looking for another pair that I couldn't live without... Malibran became those shoes. I have been wearing them since I took them out of the box; I may even sleep in them. Sooo cute and crazy comfortable. Freaking adorable. I am wearing them with cropped jeans right now, and they look awesome.

I had the same problem with the strap but solved it by putting the buckled strap under the other one.
