[Wine with Black]
This 21 eyelet knee-high boot is sweet and spicy at the same time. Not only does it have an open lacing system that will tie you up tight like a corset and show a bit of skin, it also has an inside zipper so you don't really need to use the laces once you've found your fit. Perched on the Mini heel and rubber F-sole, this is a high heel designed for the woman who doesn't wear heels. Solidly constructed with beautiful leather uppers and linings with contrasting piping and a crown peaked top line makes this lover sexy, stable and timeless.
Heel Height: 3"

Best boots ever
I saw these a few years ago at the store and loved them. But I always put off buying them thinking I'd find something else I like better or less expensive. I finally bit the bullet and bought these last December. I got the rich, chestnut brown color (that was supposed to be a mistake color, the salesperson told me), but it couldn't have been a more perfect shade of brown for me. LOVE THESE BOOTS ,-)
They are gorgeous and so comfortable. The laces allow for perfect fit around the calf (hard to come by for people with skinny legs). Did I mention the compliments I got everytime I wear these? Worth every penny!

I play roller derby and thus have giant monster calves. Knee-high boots are very, very hard for me to find in sizes that work for me, but these are nicely forgiving. While they don't close by any means (there's about a 4" gap at the top), they look lovely. I was worried that I'd look like I'd beaten up a much smaller woman and stolen her shoes, but when I lace them up corset style (as opposed to the European-style lacing as shown above) they look great. I did need to get longer laces, though.

Love at first wear...
I do think this sums up these boots. I was sooo excited when I pulled them out of the box and they have not let me down at all. Comfort.. ooh yer, considering that they did their first outing walking the streets of Hong Kong for hours on end! They attract attention whenever I wear them and my boss calls me 'super sleek ninja' whenever I am in them.. truly the boots of a chick super hero..now I just have to learn how to be the super hero part!
Five pairs of Fluevogs and going strong! ,->

Received my first pair of Fluevog yesterday, Mini-sugar in red. AWESOME. I immediately put them on, re-adjusted the laces, met friends, went out to eat, back for a nightcap, and 7.5 hours later my feet were still NOT hurting, the shoes were still comfortable, REMARKABLE. The main thing is the toe box. It does not touch your toes. There is no mashed toes syndrome, and the laces allow for a perfect fit. These are my first pair, but definitely not my last. Love them.

LOVE MY RED BOOTS!!! FYI If you need longer laces - a UK website shoestringuk has 2.2m/86.5" specimens which I found better than the alternate suggestion of using two laces tied like a corset... But that does work fine too. I just have to decide what pair to buy next!
My love affair!
My first Fluevog purchase was in the 90's before moving from Vancouver, B.C. I bought the knee high Angels and fell IN LOVE! They were literally my second skin! I then proceeded to buy another 3 pairs of different Fluevogs over a few years and "lost touch". I drove my 1959 Pontiac to Seattle, met my husband swing dancing and got married (he wore Fluevog swordfishes!) and until recently I haven't purchased a pair in sooo long. I sadly had to part ways with one of the loves of my life (my 1959 Pontiac) and decided to treat myself with a pair of the Black Tall Mini Sugars.....to "ease" the pain of my loss. This REALLY helped! They are gorgeous! My NEW second skin. LOVE LOVE LOVE them! They fit great, feel amazing. And the staff from Chicago (where I had to order from) were fantastic. They even sent me candy. How sweet! It's good to be back in touch with Fluevog. I've missed you guys! xoxoxox

Finally, they are mine
About six years ago two pairs of shoes drew me into Fluevog's sphere of influence: the Mini Sugar and the Pinups Miss December. Since then I have picked up nine pairs of Fluevogs, but not the Sugars. Between the pricing, the reviews about sizing, and the chunky soles (I've never been a fan of how the Mini sole is so chunky in comparison to the Mini uppers), I kept putting off the purchase. Black Friday this year did me in, and I am *so* happy I indulged! These are gorgeous boots, and the soles don't detract at all from their glory. They are comfortable, sexy, and eye-grabbing. I sense a photoshoot coming... @>-
In terms of sizing: I am a standard size 8.5 wide in every other brand I own. In Fluevog-sizing I am anywhere from a 9-9.5, depending on the shoe's length and width. In the Sugar I am a size 9; the length is a *perfect* 8.5 (my toe sits exactly where it should in the toebox), and I loosened the lacing on the foot to accommodate my wide foot. I also have muscular calves and had no fit problems after some re-lacing bodice-style (very sexy). Thank you, John, for yet another gorgeous pair of 'Vogs. ,->
I heart John
I bought these in red after already owning the mini ankle boot and the libby bellevue. the latter isn't as adaptable, but is still lovable. But the red boots are SENSATIONAL and earn comments everywhere I go. I wore them to cover Fashion Week and actually had a fashion blogger ask if she could take me out for a coffee sometime, because "I noticed your boots and thought you have great style". All thanks to you, John.

Ok, these boots are HOT.
I am *IN LOVE* with these super hot boots!! I have admired Fluevog's for many years (since my high school days on Haight St) but have never owned a pair... until recently when my interest was re-ignited after randomly shopping the fluevog.com website.
I ran across the Mini Sugar in wine (RED) and couldn't think about anything else until I had them. I was reluctant to order such expensive boots online without first trying them on but I was able to get some of my questions answered by the fabulous Leah and Willy at the Seattle Fluevog store.
Several people have commented that these shoes tend to run a half size small so I ordered a 10 (normally wear 9-9.5). Unfortunately, the 10 were too short so I had to go for the 10.5. I'll repeat, I had to go a *full size larger* in these boots. The beauty in the design is that they are fully adjustable from about the mid-foot to the upper calf because of the corset stitching... <so hot> and functional!!
I should also say that I *never* wear heels, ever. I just don't think they're comfortable. However, these shoes feel great and are very stable; I would highly recommend them, even to people who hate heels.
Ok, I can't say enough good things about these boots. I am in love with them and I'm looking forward to buying their counterpart, the Mini Lovers, next.
