The LA: Silverlake
Based off of the legendary "Grand National" cloven hooved boot, John has created an inverse heel in the LA family. A sexy bootie with a 6" heel molded in an Italian factory that specializes in extreme high heels, the Silverlake is a bootie made for naughty naughty girls (or boys). A BoHo ankle boot made of Italian Luminato leathers, gold leather lining, and a 6" wedged heel, these heels are what anyone between the Ivanhoe and Sunset wears when fighting off the paparazzi (or hunting down prey).

OMG these are EXACTLY what I hoped they would be! They are as comfortable as they are sexy, and super easy to walk in. I called the Boston store to inquire about sizing (since there is no Fluevog in Denver and I had never even tried a pair on), and Ali was SO helpful. I normally wear a size 9 and a size 9 in these boots fits wonderfully. They are snug around the ankles which provides the perfect amount of support without constraint. LOVELOVELOVE! Thank you, Ali and thank you, Fluevog!

Should I go for half size larger due to height?

Thank you for restocking these! Worth the wait. As mentioned below they are as comfortable as they are sexy. I like that they really go with anything and I can dress them up/down. I like the view from up here, too.
And for those of us with big honking calves that won't fit the taller styles they are a fab option for sporting Fluevog Boot Awesomeness.

So I love Fluevogs and everything, but this particular style was a little out of my comfort zone. But being adventurous, I of course had to try them on! (I try on everything that comes into the store...just cause I can!) What started out as a joke.."yeaaa..right...those ones...I'll try them" became "oh my...those actually work! Look how sexy they are!!" Yup. My wallet once again bit the dust and I had to have them. They are glorious. @>-

High Heel Heaven
Well,it took three visits to the shop to finally decide on which LA model to buy. In the end it was the Silverlake over the Mulholland. The Mulholland reminded me of my Grand National Corset Boot with its unique tight lacing feeling. The Silverland provids more support with its high arch design and somewhat snug feeling and very soft leather. The heel height is perfect and very easy to walk in for long periods. The folks at the Boston store are fabulous especially "Ali". I now own 3 Vogs and counting. I just wonder what new design can John come up with that can rival the GN and now the LA.

These are much more comfortable than you'd expect. The boot is snug around the foot and it really helps you feel secure on the heels. Walking in them is really not so hard. Because the boot is so supportive, you don't feel like you're about to fall off them. The snugness also seems to help distribute your weight on the sole, so compared to the slingbacks, these were much more comfortable for me. I'm a 7.5 and I have very high arches that sometimes makes shoes too tight over the instep. These were snug, but they fit great and they were comfy. The 7 is perfect in length and width. They're not shoes I'd want to walk all over the city in, but they're much more wearable than probably any other shoe you'll find with such an extreme heel.
They look great with pretty much everything, but personally I'd only wear them with skirts and cropped pants -- pants that cover the ankle tend to make you look, at first glance, like you have freakishly small feet. (Not to mention, that slight flare at the ankle visually balances the shoe and is part of the presentation! Don't hide the design! :-})

This isn't usually my kind of shoe, but when I saw them, I had to have them. I've long mourned the fact that I become a Fluevog'er long after the original Grand Nationals came out. They look incredible on, and the leather is sooooo soft and comfy. It's going to take a little practice walking in them, though!

I tried on the 1st pair in Chicago - and bought 'em. I think they're going to be a lot of fun! Can't wait to wear them out!
