Kitschy Kitschy Boom Boom |
[Brown & Navy]
Viv is kickin' it old school. Her design is straight out of the Fluevog history books and her style is as eternal as a red lip. The Kitschy Kitschy Boom Boom Family exhumes classic style and Viv's curves and funky, swirly detail epitomizes Victorian styling and modern eccentricity. She has the rubber soles of The Hope Family, aniline leather of The Mini Family, and a 2" Wearever heel. She's the perfect addition to The KKBB Family and any Fluevoger's wardrobe.

These heels are a touch short in the toe box, but true to size in the width. A great shoe!

Received these fantastic shoes today . I got the tan and blue. That was a hard choice given the black and white color combination. OMG.......absolutely adorable. Made this purchase from the Boston store. Fantastic people working there. So eager to help. Highly reliable. With their recommendation I sized up to a 9, I normally wear 8.5. Tiny....tiny bit small. My toes slightly touch the top of the shoe. Not enough to return...no way!!!!

The Unicorn of Shoes
I bought the black & whites at the Seattle store. (Props to Willy for being so helpful!!) I take a 10 in non-Vogs and needed these in an 11 so be careful ordering online. Super comfy for a heel and they make my long feet look small. Really, really cute shoes.

Truly unique and gorgeous!
I adore these shoes. They run a whole size small though. I wear a 10 in most shoes, a 10 1/2 in Fluevogs and I got 11 1/2. They fit perfectly! The white and black are amazing. I think I'll get the brown ones too! I love Fluevog!

Kitschy kitschy oh yeah!
Love these babies. Catherine is the best... I didn't look twice, but she had me try on Viv, we found the right size and walked with them on. Can't wait to go back again and see what I'll be wearing this spring!

don't make me take them off
Super helpful sales guy at Boston Back Bay store encouraged me to try these (sorry, I don't remember your name, you were awesome!!) when I explained my wide toe/narrow heel foot situation. My normal size, 5.5-6, was waaaay to small in the length (very unusual for me) so I sized up to a 6.5 and the fit was perfection. The toe box is roomy the heel is narrow to hold my feet, the walk is incredibly stable with great traction. And best of all they are beautiful!! Tons of compliments already, wearing them everywhere and with everything. The leather is much stiffer than some other shoes, which is great for support but means there is a bit of a breaking-in period involved, nothing blister-invoking just a feeling when walking that my foot was fighting to make the shoe conform. I'm sure we'll all work things out. Mostly sheer comfort straight out of the box. And the color combo is too adorable.

I bought these beauties in a 7 (but that was me being strongheaded and wanting the shoes NOW as opposed to waiting a bit). I tried them at home and although they fit (my usual size is a 7.5 and my feet are narrow)I had to admit that I needed my normal size. So, I exchanged them for a 7.5 which I am wearing at home as I type, and I wish I had listened to the other reviewers who went up half a size. The 7.5 fit me well but my right foot appears to be a tiny bit larger than the left and it feels tight. I hope the leather will stretch in time as I don't want to exchange them again (no fluevog store in my city). If you have wide feet make sure to go up in size, like I said, my feet are very narrow and they feel a bit constricted in these, maybe you have better chance with the Liz which were huge width-wise on my feet. The insole feels cushiony and the arch support is quite nice.
That being said, I fell in love with the Vivs the moment I saw them on the website. I bought the black and white with thin pink piping colourway. They look amazing, make the foot and legs look great, very retro chic. Unlike some of my other Fluevogs, I could see myself wearing them with pants, although my preference would be dresses and skirts, all the better to show the beautiful swirls on the side and back.

I got these beauties from Modcloth.com, and I am so in love. I have been stalking Viv since she showed up on the Fluevog site, and I finally took the plunge and brought her home. I got the brown ones, and they are so beautiful. As expected, they are comfy, and I expect loads of compliments. A note about sizing: I normally wear a 6.5 (slightly wide feet with high arches), and the 7.5 is what fits my feet best. These beauties are my new favorite Fluevogs (which is saying a lot because I have many Fluevogs, like double digits number of Fluevogs).

Viv was an immediate "Must buy!", the brown and blue are just about the cutest Fluevogs I've seen in years, love the retro look of them. I already have 2 pairs of Liz so went with the same size in Viv, 8. They fit perfectly and very comfortably with tights, but if I wanted to wear a thicker sock I think an 8.5 would be necessary. I'm a 7.5 to 8 in my other Fluevogs.

The perfect shoe
As soon as I saw the add contest for these I was dying for them to come to stores. It was love at first sight with the black and white ones. When I went to try them on I also feel in love with the blue and brown, but that is another story. I stuck with the black and white and have worn them several times. I always get compliments and they make my feet happy!!! I wear anywhere from a 6-7 depending on the Vog, with these I got the 7 and they are just perfect!

Bought them in both colors -- they are amazing!
Made the trek to Montreal and was looking for lace-ups with some support, reasonable heel and lots of style. These are it!!! Coincidentally, I was wearing a hot pink top and black yoga pants, so these actually worked with my outfit! Bought them in the blue and brown as well for jeans. Amazing fit and support -- felt as if they were custom-made. And made my 9 VERY WIDE feet look teeny weeny! I danced in them in the store!
