Rules Low |
The Joni is named in tribute to one of Canada's most inspiring songstresses. After decades of singing beautiful songs written about nature, political change, and the many wily ways of love, Joni's songs will reverberate and inspire many generations to come. John designed the Joni as a natural heeled lace-up sandal for the new generation of eco-minded songcrafters carrying the torch of truth. Thanks Joni for lighting the path -- we could drink a case of you. Love!
The Joni features vegetable-tanned rugged Atlas leathers in bright saturated summer colours, and are built on a 0.9" platform leather-wrapped recycled cork with a 2.75" leather wrapped heel. Modernizing this 1920's stylized lace-up slingback are flathead bolts and a rubber Truth soleplate, perfect for those fashion-forward, truth-seeking individuals. Natural Beauty Rules.

The Rules Low Joni fits small. Women with wider feet can go down 1/2 to 1 size. They're very comfortable!

Cute and comfortable
I walk 3km to work every day and have struggle to find cute and comfy shoes to wear on my walk. I think the Joni (in RED) fits the bill perfectly. Thank you to Heather and Brian for a great shopping experience, as usual!

Comfy and Fun
When I first saw these last year, I HAD to have them! Mine fit true to size, and are the comfiest shoes imaginable; I can wear them all day with no discomfort, and they're a dream to walk in. The only drawback is colour transfer (purple feet are not cool). The purple w/ lime laces were my go-to colour splash last summer, and happily will be accompanied by a fuschia pair this summer.

Most comfortable shoe ever
I bought these babies in black one morning this week. LIke other have said, it's easy to walk past them in the store, but once you try them on? Swoon. Love the way they hug the foot. And comfortable? Not only did I wear them all that day at work, but walked home in them. 2 km. Next day? Walked 4 more. I am in love. With the colored laces they are fun, with the black laces they give off an slightly naughty vibe. Smart and sexy shoes? Yes please. Looking forward to getting more colors of laces to play with different looks. And saving up for the brown ones for my daughter, she loves them so much they may disappear on me.

Purchased these in purple to add some interest to my outfits. These shoes are so comfortable and I love being able to walk long distances with a bit of hight and a lot of style.

So happy that I took the plunge and bought these beauties. Soft leather and very comfy and walkable for my narrow size 5 small feet. I also received two extra colourful pairs of shoe laces with my sensable black Joni's and recieved my package in a remarkable one day. Thank-you for making such fantastic shoes!

Comfortable and Cool
I nearly didn't try these shoes on as they don't have a lot of curb appeal on the shelf. The sales woman encouraged me to give them a chance and I'm so glad I did. They are very comfortable and they look great on. I went up a half size. I bought them from a retailer that doesn't carry a lot of stock so they only had black or beige. I bought the black which will be my go to shoe as soon as it's warm enough to shoe my toes, and now I'm tempted to order red or purple for variety.....

Love Love these shoes. Great looking and comfortable. I usually wear a size 9 (40) in Fluevog and these fit true to size. Love the laces and will also swap out some other patterned laces that I have. Magic. Buying more in this style.

So just brought the black ones. Loving them sick!
Walked all day in them today no probs and got a few shoe comments. Most impressively my 21 year old fashionista daughter stated they are really great shoes! Unheard of complements. Wow John you've done it again.went up 1/2 size.

The best sandals!
Don't be fooled - these are one of those styles that look a litlle |-) on the shelf. I hadn't even given them a 2nd glance until I saw them on Leah at the Seattle store during the sale. I was smitten - they look so different ON! So comfy, no break in period either. I had to size up 1/2 size to 10s. Do yourself a favor, pick up the teal laces to interchange - the teal really make the blue in the indigo color pop. STUNNING!!
P.S. It is true, the dye will rub off on your feet just a little during the first couple wearings, warning! :)

I Heart Joni!
Truly one of the most comfortable summer shoes John has EVER made. Plus they are deliciously colourful! I went up half a size and am happy with that decision.
