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). Your Love Makes Me Sing.
Half sizes available.

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.

Love my red Malibrans!!
Hello, Just to say I bought my ruby red Malibrans from Sole Devotion in the city on the weekend. This is my 2nd pair of Fluevogs- boots the first time (gorgeous too!) The Malibrans are just divine. I have drooled over them on the website for ages!! It has only been 4 days, but I can't stop looking at my shoes and have already had loads of comments about how gorgeous they are. From someone who is on their feet all day, I can say that they are easy to wear, comfortable and sexy all at the same time. I can't wait to visit the Fluevog store in NYC early next year- I have made it a "must-do" stop on my travels!! I am so happy I found Fluevog!
These shoes are just *amazing*. They're cute, sexy, stylish, AWESOME, and unique. Fluevogs are the only heels I can walk in comfortably - I'll never buy another brand, now that I know how comfortable heels can be. They feel like they were made specifically for me: they fit my small (size 5), wide feet perfectly. I have them in the wine color (which is really a gorgeous ruby red), and they look perfectly adorable with semi-casual to formal outfits - especially with the incredible matching bag. I've had them for about a year, and they still look brand new. I get gushing compliments every single time I wear these honeys. Do yourself a favor and buy these immediately!

Very comfortable shoe!
These shoes fit like a glove and were comfortable right out of the box. Super cute, funky design that goes with dress and more casual clothes.

I looooooove these shoes!
Never walked in heels as I could not find a comfortable pair... until I got these. I can now walk all day in these and not even get a blister. They were comfortable from day 1. I get lots of compliments as everybody loves my little red shoes :-)

I love these shoes!!
I bought these shoes during a trip to NYC in March 2009. I now own them in two colors, along with several other variations of the Operetta. These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I bought my first Fluevogs in 2000, and have been adding to those ever since. Almost ten years later, the first pair I bought still look spectacular. Thanks so much for these beautiful shoes!!!

Make the investment!
These shoes are one of the best purchases I have ever made. I work on my feet all day, and after 2 years, they are still making my toes happy day after day. The heel, rubber soul and super-soft leather make the Malibran the best shoe investment I have ever made. Now that they are available in Olive, I may just have to have another pair!

My First Fluevogs
Back in October, I finally 'broke down' and bought my first pair of Fluevogs... and immediately wondered what took me so long! These are so cute and stylish that I wear them all the time. The olive colour is different enough to be interesting, but neutral enough that it goes with just about everything. The heel is perfect, just the right height and sturdy enough that I don't feel like I've been wearing heels all day. And I just love the asymmetrical toe! They're absolutely adorable, and I get compliments on them all the time. I've since bought two more pairs, and am saving up for my fourth, but I think these will always be my favourites.

I got my Operettas when they first came out. I've had the heels resoled three times, and wearing them still makes me happy!!! To keep the shoes nice and my feet happy, wear these shoes with little tiny socks, made by Hue, that can't be seen. These shoes are NOT expensive. They are timeless and feel good for years.

I am in love!
I just got these shoes in red. It was my first visit ever to the Fluevog store here in Los Angeles, CA. I cannot believe how comfortable and beautiful they are. I always thought that someone on planet Earth had to come out with the idea of making shoes that were fashionable and comfortable at the same time and I just found this unique source! FLUEVOG! I am an instant fan. But this is not the end, I also bought a pair of boots, Yay!! I am going to leave feedback for the boots right now :) BEWARE: Once you get your first pair of Fluevog shoes you will become an addict! I am not kidding :o

When I saw these shoes, it was love at first sight. I bought them for my wedding. Now, I just need to find a dress to go with them.
