Drawing on invaluable lessons he learned from his boyhood camping experiences, John sketched up a sexy lady shoe that featured thick, soft leathers, custom Fluevog buckles, a 3.5" curved heel, and a 1.5" hidden platform of recycled cork, all on a tunite sole with rubber grips. This uber-modern Mary Jane clog makes sure everyone follows the leader. Prepare for the Future, choose well today.

I'm in Heaven! My very first pair of Vogs and I am in love. Being a thick girrrl I always have to be careful about getting too high of a heel. These fit like a glove and are unbelievably comfortable. Yes! Comfortable heels!

Incredibly Comfortable - The ONLY Pair I Wore to London!!!
I work a lot and travel a lot. I am supposed to be a funky designer type but my feet don't often comply. Last year I bought these PREPARE LEADERS in Purple and love them. I ended up bringing these on a short work trip to London and they were so comfortable the entire time - walking through the airport and through the city streets .... cannot say enough good things about these shoes. I am buying another pair in BLUE and am debating the GUIDE style this time around ... love my Fluevogs! I have purchased from Portland and also from the Union Square store and everyone is fantastic. I am a 7 / 37 and these seem very true to size.

In my Vog top 5, probably even 3
I own around 20 pairs of Fluevogs, dating to the late 1990s and these are easily in my top 5. They are SUPER comfy, fit true to size and are fabulously wearable - they are so sturdy and grounded that I can walk 10+ blocks in them without the slightest irritation. LOVE THEM!!!

I'm a believer!
Over 50 yrs old and already almost six feet tall, I bought these recently and LOVE them. They are true to size for my size 11 feet - a size I wear in non-Vogs and some Vogs. The shoes are narrow and with the platforms don't feel that high. The leather is lovely as is the shape and the craftsmanship. So far, I'm only wearing the shoes indoors at work but I look forward to wearing them as my everyday shoe. Highly recommended and thanks to Anthony at the Montreal store.

My feet are so happy!
I went in to the store to try something else but the minute I put the Prepare Leaders on my foot, I had to buy them. My feet were so happy. I wore them out of the store and walked for blocks, no blisters. This is not my first pair of Fluevogs. For a while the red Malibrans were my favorite. Then the pink/gray/black Amandas. Now these are my favorite. I got the size 7.5, finding these to be true to that size.

My fluvog lost a heal :(
These are my 3rd pair of Fluevog and I love them but after only 2 weeks and wearing them 5-6 times, the left heal fell....sad :(

This became my 9th pair of Fluevogs and they are by far the best pair of shoes I've ever owned.
They are as comfortable as sneakers. The arch in the shoe is not as steep as the height it gives you so my feet don't hurt at the end of a long day. At 5"2 they make me taller which I love and no foot pain.
I actually have to say (as I have troubled feet) my feet feel better after wearing them.
I have had no trouble wearing them in (I normally wear a 7/7 1/2 and my Prepares are an 8).
The rubber on the soles also help with impact and a lot of walking.
When I want height but not heel I normally wear my Dansko clogs but I have balance issues. So far no tripping in my Prepares or nearly falling over.
So happy with them I just bought another pair despite living on a tight budget. I can give up food for these shoes.

Comfy Cozie Heels sold by a great sales team! NYC Rocks!
I adore my newest Fluvogs! I have gotten so many compliments so far. They will be my gallery stomping shoe for sure! A big thanks to the wonderful NYC sales staff for helping me and my son decide on new vogs on Saturday. You are very patient. I know he didn't want to even try on. You made it quick and painless. i am forever thankful! The best part- he looks so handsome and stylish. I know he will be back! You Rock!

excellent service for online
I decided to gamble but was worried about spending this much on shoes I could only get online. Thankfully the friendly and helpful staff at the Union Square shop where they were presumably shipped from were very proactive and patient in emailing back and forth with advice on how they have fitted other customers. In the end because of a broad foot with a high instep I got a 1/2 size up and they are perfect. It is as if fluevog could have designed Cindarella's glass slipper. They needed a tiny bit of breaking in and are now perfect. The also make my foot look surprisingly dainty and my ankles very shapely.
