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.

I just got these in blue and, though I own roughly 35 pairs of Fluevogs, these may now be my absolute favorite shoes ever. They are perfect: sexy, bold, and, yes, comfortable. FYI re: sizing, I almost always wear an 8 or 8.5 in Fluevogs, but ended up going with a 9 in this shoe.

Wore them for a Vegas convention. Not only did they look GREAT, they felt like I was in running shoes. I has the added bonus of people asking me where I got my shoes?

I love my gorgeous red guides!!
Thanks so much to Brian at the Toronto store for all your help. Didn't have my size so he had to order them from Montreal. Monday the order went out and I had them for the weekend ... I don't think I will take them off, they are so comfy and cute!

Got my blue ones, now I have a pair in blue and brown. Comfy right out of the box. These feel like Dansko clogs but make me 3 inches taller! Sexy, comfortable, unique ... THANKS JOHN FOR FINALLY MAKING HEELS PEOPLE WITH FOOT PROBLEMS CAN WEAR!! LOVE!!!! Please make more platform-based shoes so problem feet can be sexy too!

P-) Omigod, I just got these in brown and ordered another pair in blue. They are super comfy, stable, and super cute! I never wear heels and these were comfy right out of the box. Love the wide mary jane straps.

The Dutch are jealous
Their sabots have never looked so good! I've been haunting the website, waiting for these beauties to metamorph from drawings on a page to leather on my feet. Got 'em in dark orange and I can barely stand to take them off--actually fell asleep in them one day! They look faboo with skinny jeans and may even entice me to wear a skirt. They are so gorgeous in every small detail, it would be hard to pick just one wonderful thing, but the hot pink edging was an unexpected zing. Now I wanna be unfaithful to them with a pair in blue... hello, John? I sooo wanna see these as boots!
NO PANTS love herself the Guides
There is nothing else I can say but GOOD FANCY MOSES!!! I got these shoes and immediately did the happy dance around my house. They are just fabulous. They look amazing on my feet and are unbelievably comfortable. I wear a 10 normally and in these pairs of Fluevogs I seem to be most comfortable in a 10.5. The blue is my favorite Dutch Girl blue and I can see them looking awesome with all manners of dresses and skirts for the next 365 days!

They arrived today
I ordered them online and was as always exited. I am usually a 9 in Fluevog, and 9 was perfect.
The leather is soft and there is space above the toes.
The color surprised me though. I think they are more brick-red, then red orange.
Not that it matter. I can't take them off. ,-)
Ordered the red ones because you can't have a bad day when you're wearing red shoes. 7 1/2s were a little short, the 8's are perfect if I add a little under-the-ball-of-the-foot pad, but that's just because I have narrow, bony feet. Gorgeous, soft, and they smell so good - like an old shoe shop full of leather and polish. Thanks John!
