Drawing on invaluable lessons he learned from his boyhood camping experiences, John sketched up a sexy lady shoe that featured thick, soft leathers, custom Fluevog buckles, a 3.5" curved heel, and a 1.5" hidden platform of recycled cork, all on a tunite sole with rubber grips. This uber-modern Mary Jane clog makes sure everyone follows the leader. Prepare for the Future, choose well today.

I just got my Prepare Guides in black. I initially got size 8 and at home after walking for a half an hour or so I decided these must go bigger. My toes didn't have enough room. So, I rushed to Portland Fluevog store for an exchange. I got an 8.5 and it fits perfectly (if you get a right size these are truly great0. I am very happy with them. I can't wear heels so I missed out on a lot of fashion shoes. Now, I can have one! Also, I found a link to podiatry shoe reviews and these are highly recommended for people even for people with foot problems such as bunions, etc. Isn't it great. I am waiting for more fabulous wearable styles for those who want a style but can't wear heels. The only thing: you must be careful since these are platform. So, be aware of turns and twists. Otherwise, fabulous.
Stylish but practical
These fit wonderfully. My feet are a bit wide, but these are don't pinch at all. I am a size 9, & found these true to size. I've been wearing them to work, and they are stable and comfortable to wear all day. These were the 1st pair of Fluevogs I bought, & it was great to receive something of such quality; these exceeded my expectations, & I'm now a repeat customer.

Love my new shoes
I just bought these in red this afternoon, and love them so much. I fit an 8 1/2, which is my usual shoe size - often I need to size up in Fluevogs. Was sad not to be buying these in New York, but happy they are available in Auckland, New Zealand. So far I have worn them with turned up jeans, and they look great. I'm sure they'll also be perfect with a skirt. Raced home and showed them to my neighbour who screamed with envy and got off the phone immediately.

My go to shoe...
This is absolutely my favourite shoe ever. I have even had them on my feet for 24 hrs straight... from clinic to hospital and they are still sooooo comfortable. I have had women chase me down to ask where I got them! They fit my usual size perfectly and there was no breaking in period. The ankle boot fits exactly the same and is equally as comfortable. I have worn both the boots and the shoes for long nights of dancing and love love love how they feel to dance in. ( And yes, the extra inches in height is a BIG bonus ). I am eternally grateful to Brian at the Toronto store for suggesting these beauties to me.

A perfect every day shoe
I wear these almost every other day. I have a lot of other shoes (red, orange, green, yellow, you name it) in a variety of styles but these just go with anything. They're great to wear to work, wonderful to go out in, perfect with a pair of jeans - they just belong! Satisfied Smirk: ,-> add to the go with anything look the comfort of runners who can argue? They didn't need a moment to strectch, rather straight out of the box comfort.

oh baby, oh baby
I just wore my blue Prepares out of the store and already am basking in the admiring glances of fellow strollers. I'm a Fluevoger from way back and these are my new favorites. I wear a 9 in most styles but an 8.5 in these.

I'm in love!
These fit perfectly. I wear a size 8 in the "Lily Darling" and the same here. Perfect! I got these for work as I am on my feet the entire time I am at work. I love them! I feel like they were made just for me! I am a little worried that the heel pad may be short lived though. My "Lily Darlings" are built like tanks and these seem a bit more on the fragile side. Time will tell. I do love them and will definitely be getting another pair in a different color!

I LOVE LOVE these shoes, they fit great right away and were a pleasure to wear even during long tradeshow hours on concrete floors. However, I've owned this pair for about 3.5 months and they are already showing a lot of wear and tear. I need the heel caps replaced already (which i don't see online despite notes to the contrary) and the insoles seem to be breaking down really quickly. The first month or so I could wear these ALL day, walking a lot or standing a lot (I live in the city without a car so walking is a must for any shoe). I was so happy that these worked for me and was preparing to buy another pair. But now, after the same day of walking (and even shorter days) my feet are sore, the shoes don't have the same support, its like it started breaking down within only a couple months of wear. I expected a lot more for as much as these shoes cost, even if they were on sale. I bought these because I expected them to outlast cheaper shoes, so far they're failing. so sad because they are truly beautiful shoes.

Give these shoes a try!
I resisted these -- thought they looked bulky and off -- until I saw them on the feet of the April Vogunteer! Then I knew I had to go try them on. Well - they are now pair #9 in my collection and the MOST comfortable shoes I have ever owned! I did have to try a couple of pairs in the same size to get the fit just right -- but I am ever so glad I did!
Seriously, you can run in these like they are sneakers!

I just purchased these shoes in black about a week ago from the Boston store, and I'm so happy with them! I was looking for a new pair of shoes for work, so it was important to find something that was comfortable to wear for a long period of time. I wasn't expecting to choose a pair of heels, but these feel surprisingly comfortable all day. They're fun and interesting, but conservative enough to wear in a business casual setting. I wear a size 7 shoe normally, and the size 7's fit perfectly. Overall a great purchase, and worth trying on!
