L'inspiration originale derrière la chaussure Guide vient de la fois où John se dirigeait au studio de conception Fluevog pour une réunion et fut confronté par une Guide cherchant à vendre ses biscuits. John, se sentant généreux (et affamé), décida d'acheter plusieurs boîtes de ces délicieux biscuits (on ne connaît toujours pas le chiffre exact), pour les offrir à ses employés dévoués et travaillant. Pendant sa marche, la faim le vainquit, et il a commencé à manger joyeusement. En premier, la boîte menthe et chocolat... ensuite celle des biscuits à la noix de coco... et puis une autre boîte... Par le temps où John arriva au studio, il constata qu'il avait mangé tous les biscuits. Il jeta les boîtes et détruisit toute évidence de ce qui s'appelle désormais « Le grand massacre des biscuits ». Malheureusement pour John, l'histoire fut dévoilée pendant la réunion où tous remarquent sa cravate remplie de miettes de biscuit.
Souriant en pensant à la leçon inestimable qu'il a apprise ce jour-là, John dessina une chaussure pour femme séduisante avec un cuir épais et souple d'une surface perlée, des boucles signées Fluevog, une plateforme cachée faite de liège recyclé, le tout sur une semelle tunite avec une adhérence en caoutchouc. Cette chaussure de style Charles IX version hyper moderne vous offrira une fondation solide pour les défis qui se pointeront (comme ne pas manger tous les biscuits d'un coup sans verre de lait.) Prepare for the Future, choose well today. (Préparez-vous pour l'avenir, faites le bon choix aujourd'hui.)

The angle of the toe swoop makes them fit a half size smaller.

dead & buried
My kids and hubby have been advised that when I die I want to be buried in these shoes! They are the cutest, most comfortable, and sexiest shoes I have ever owned. I would marry them if I wasn't married already.

I have these in the denim and they are quite the funniest shoes I've ever bought. Just recently, within five minutes of each other, I had someone say "I hope you won't be offended, but those are the ugliest shoes I've ever seen" and another say "Those shoes are AMAZING!" Both comments pleased me very much indeed, and I agree with both views. They're very comfortable and downright weird - I love them.
(8.5 to 9 in most shoe sizes with fairly wide feet, I bought these in a 9.)

I just bought the yellow and pink Prepare. That makes number 6 and 7. These shoes are the best. I teach in them all day. My students think they are cool too. I was so happy to see the new colors! Would love to see a deep green color and a whitish suede pair would be great too. I can also imagine a purplish paisley pair too. Keep dreaming up new colors. :

I must suggest that heeled boots would be a fall/winter dream for us Voggers in the Turquoise shade of the Prepare Guides. Those shoes sold out so quickly in that colour, and nothing brightens up a cold day like a happy & bright pair of aqua boots!

I live far far away from any store and take risks with ordering shoes. I have had some not-quites happen, but this shoe nailed it out of the park.
It perfectly fits my criteria: comfortable, unique (without having that trying-too-hard-to-be-cool look), flexible with different wardrobe, and a little bit sexy.

I went into the Haight St. store in SF, while on holiday, to try on another pair of shoes I'd had my eye on forever but walked out in these pieces of sorcery. I have very narrow, very long (size 11) feet and when I saw these on-line I thought they would look clunky on me. In store, Monika said I had to try them on, and they looked just dishy, I felt like a Goddess (as usual when in Fluevogs). The turquoise color is just divine, goes perfect with jeans, bright dresses, and puts that bold spot of color into a black ensemble. They are also way more comfortable than they look (I can wear them through the work day) and I would tell anyone with larger feet to go for these shoes, you will be enchanted by them.

I just wrote a review that I got an 8.5 and they fit great although I usually wear a 9. That was wrong! LOL.... I actually got a 9.5 and they fit perfect. So I went up half a size, not down. So sorry! I hope I didn't confuse anyone.
Posted by Lisa from Orlando, Florida:
These shoes are 100% amazing. They don't look like they'd be comfy, but I feel like I'm walking on clouds. It's so wild! Also... I wear a size 9 shoe 95% of the time, but I ordered an 8.5 in these (that's all that was left), and they fit perfect. The 9 would have been too big. Hope that helps when you're shopping. Get these! You won't regret it.

I own all the colors of these shoes. I live in them. They go with everything and I always get compliments. I just need them to come in MORE cool colors! :-)

Not for the shy
If you're not comfortable having complete strangers stop you to comment on your shoes then Fluevogs are probably not for you. The vegan Guides are my first non-Mini 'Vogs and I couldn't be happier. I found them to be true to size (I'm a 9.5; 8.5 in Zazas, Elifs) and just funky enough to satisfy my shoe love. The true test for me is comfort, though, and these awesome shoes prove yet again why I keep adding Fluevogs to my closet: they feel great. I'm on my feet for five hours or so a stretch at work and they feel just as great at the end of the day as when I put them on. As eye-catching as these shoes are, they were clearly made to be worn. Yep, another pair is definitely in my future.
