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). Your Love Makes Me Sing.
Half sizes available.

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.

I bought these uber comfy shoes in red and love them. They are my first Fluevogs and I've even bought a second pair (of a different style). I can wear these all day and have some great comments. Now on to boots.....

I am a 45 year old shoe-aholic. Yes, yes, we all know Carrie Bradshaw.. well, she exists... that would be me. I have shopped for shoes in Beirut, Paris, London, Milan, Rome, TO, Montreal, Vancouver, and God knows where else.I have forgone eating.. for shoes.. I have now found my match. My duck feet quack to their new "swan-maker" of shoes. FLUEVOG. I can honestly say that I have cleared out my entire shoe collection and will now have only ONLY FLUEVOGS enter my closet . Manilo Blahnik.. who the hell is that?????? @>-

I wanted the Malibran Operette in a size 7, but Fluevog was out, so I emailed them asking to put me on a waiting list.. They replied saying they aren't likely to get more in, but referred me to an online shoe company who had *one* last pair in my size! THRILLING, and so nice of them to do this for me!!! :-D I'm waring them now :)

Can't get enough Fluevog
My sister recommended these beauties for my wedding day. They are incredibly comfortable - I danced all night in them and had zero blisters - and look amazing. I love them as much as my new husband. Yes, serious, I love these shoes that much. I have an olive green version, which seems to no longer be listed here. I would buy another pair if it weren't for all the other styles I now drool over daily. ,->

i (heart) fluevogs!
i have been a fan since i found my first pair of supervogs back in 1997. slowly and surely, i have built my collection up to 5 pairs, and i don't have any plans to stop! last year for my birthday, i convinced my sweetie that i NEEDED a pair of turquoise bass minstrels, and this year it was the malibrans in turquoise! these heels are amazing. i already have a pair of fluevog heels (mini q-tees), so i knew they'd be comfortable, but i was unprepared for just how much! i wore them to my first craft fair (as a vendor), and at the end of the long first day, i was amazed that i didn't feel the need to get them off of my feet! naturally, i wore them to the second day of the fair and have been finding excuses to go out and wear them every day since! ,-) i am in love!!

i love, love, love them! they fit pretty tts, i think. i normally wear 9.5 or 10 and have wide feet, so i went for the 10. they really are comfortable, and even stable!
that said, i got a little heel blisters the first time out... but that pretty much always happens, so i don't blame the shoes.

Heels I don't want to take off
I just got a pair and wore them for the first time -barefoot- no less. I was able to go all day and didn't have to break out my flat safety shoes that I brought just in case I was uncomfortable. Even after I got home I left them on. I have never had a heel that I haven't wanted to rip off my feet at the first opportunity. I am amazed. Plus they are awesomely beautiful. Plus the color is stunning. I loves.

I don't do heels. I do, however, do Fluevogs and this lovely little number has been a gateway drug into the world of sexy grownup shoes.
The comfort factor of Malibrans is totally off the charts. I wear them with everything, and mourn the fact that I do not own them in every color.
The bottom strap is a little loose on my foot, but that's no factor at all in how much I love these. Every time I wear my "ruby slippers" (I got them in wine) I get compliments.
I've collected 5 pairs of Fluevogs over the last few years, and these are my favorite style by far.
I saw the Fluevog ad in a magazine and was so intrigued that I had to come in and take a peek - and promptly fell in love with the Malibrans! I was torn between the turquoise and the wine, and went with the tuquoise only because I already have a pair of patent red leather shoes. I get complimented on them all the time! I'm just glad that there isn't a store near me so I won't be tempted all the time. I already have plans to coordinate my (future) bridesmaids' dresses around what pair of fluevogs they agree on. Who needs stinkin' pearls when you can be given awesome shoes instead?
