This legendary 2.5 heeled maryjane was inspired by Maria Malibran, one of the most famous opera singers of the 19th century, who was known for her extraordinary flexibility, range, and power. With soft leathers in Baccarat Patent or matte Dragon, soft rubber soles, and a leather wrapped heel, this shoe could possibly be the most functional and comfortable Fluevog ever. The Malibran will be your everyday, dress-up, dress-down, favourite pair of shoes perfect for anything and everything (which is almost impossible). Half sizes available.
Ali from our New York store says:
The Malibran will get you to where you are going with ease and style! This last runs as true as you can get! The toe box can be short on some people with longer toes, so maybe try a half size up if you think you may fit that description.

My First Fluevogs
Back in October, I finally 'broke down' and bought my first pair of Fluevogs... and immediately wondered what took me so long! These are so cute and stylish that I wear them all the time. The olive colour is different enough to be interesting, but neutral enough that it goes with just about everything. The heel is perfect, just the right height and sturdy enough that I don't feel like I've been wearing heels all day. And I just love the asymmetrical toe! They're absolutely adorable, and I get compliments on them all the time. I've since bought two more pairs, and am saving up for my fourth, but I think these will always be my favourites.

I got my Operettas when they first came out. I've had the heels resoled three times, and wearing them still makes me happy!!! To keep the shoes nice and my feet happy, wear these shoes with little tiny socks, made by Hue, that can't be seen. These shoes are NOT expensive. They are timeless and feel good for years.

I am in love!
I just got these shoes in red. It was my first visit ever to the Fluevog store here in Los Angeles, CA. I cannot believe how comfortable and beautiful they are. I always thought that someone on planet Earth had to come out with the idea of making shoes that were fashionable and comfortable at the same time and I just found this unique source! FLUEVOG! I am an instant fan. But this is not the end, I also bought a pair of boots, Yay!! I am going to leave feedback for the boots right now :) BEWARE: Once you get your first pair of Fluevog shoes you will become an addict! I am not kidding :o

When I saw these shoes, it was love at first sight. I bought them for my wedding. Now, I just need to find a dress to go with them.

Just received my Malibrans in Red/Wine. I now own three pairs of Vogs and each pair is more beautiful than the last! I keep thinking it can't get any better, then it does! These shoes are amazingly comfortable, really adorable. The red colour is just the right, bright, deep red and very shiny! The toe of the shoe is much squarer than it looks in the pics, but it suits the style wonderfully. I almost caused a pile up in the ladies bathroom of my local pub when I stopped suddenly to admire my new shoes, when catching a passing glimpse in the mirror. I have spent more time staring at my own feet in the past few hours than in most of my life previously! Fab with jeans, yet smart enough to wear with a 'dressy' dress. There are a couple of weddings I am planning to wear these to already! PERFECTION x

WOW while on a recent trip to Melbourne, Australia I discovered Fluevog's. Where have they been all my life!?? At the risk of TOTALLY blowing the bank account I restrained myself to only one pair. I love my Operetta in red & I have had some incredible comments from very jealous friends:-)

Discovering Fluevogs a few years ago in Calgary was sweet relief for my feet. So when my beloved labradoodle, Molly, ate my black Operettas, I rushed back to see if I could find a replacement pair! I was horrified to learn that the store was no longer going to carry Fluevogs. Egads - that seemed just wrong. It was only due to this unhappy circumstance that I discovered Fluevogs on-line. Oh - this could be a dangerous discovery! Just ordered my first pair on-line and can't wait to get them!

how much do I love you my favourite shoe
I'm a flip flop, boot or sneaker kind of girl but the first time I saw these online they sang to me. I waited and waited (knowing that the import duty and charges would kill me) until friends were on tour in L.A. They shopped for me, brought them back. Everytime I wear them, people comment on them, I am a committed fluevog girl now - the most comfortable heeled shoes ever and they just make me smile

Love the shoes-super cute. Gave me quite the blisters when I wore them without stockings. Other than that, easy to walk in. Love the new turquoise colour!
