The Gertrudes are a tribute to author and art champion Gertrude Stein, who, in true Fluevogian spirit, strode confidently and unwaveringly forward into art and literary history. The
t-strap Gertrude mary janes use thick, dry textured leathers, an adjustable strap with a brass buckle, and cord whipstitching around the edges, giving The Gertrude a pretty, but certainly not precious look. Built upon a 1"
platform, stacked leather wedge, with a 4 " leather wrapped circular heel and tunite cap, The Gertrudes inspire you to speak your passions unflinchingly. Write down your dreams.

O John how do I vog thee?
I've been fluevoggin' since the moment I saw Lady Ms. Mir assure me that groove was in the heart and I said "what are THOSE!!!????" !!!! I do not have the honor of now owning a pair of munsters but I do have quite a collection of many other Vogs. I am happy to say that my beloved John still surprises me with fresh Vogs and I Can still depend on him for incredible value and durability. These shoes are gOrgeous and an amazing value! Times are tight so right now I'm Voggin on a budget but I still gotten!!!! Forever thank you John, my love!

When I think of Gertrude, it isn't positive images that spring to mind. But these shoes: hold the imagery & change your expectations! I do not like tall heels, I tend to feel either wobly or tower like. So when I first looked at these online I ignored them. When I tried them on in store that was it, I bought them. They seem to be a bit like green eggs and ham. So let me be your Sam, try them try them and you may I say! Super evening shoes that garner comments galore. The wedge, the heel, the platform, they literally have everything! I have them in the burnt orange boot and the brown shoe I liked them that much! B-)

What a name for shoes...would Gertrude Stein wear such high shoes....? I love them...Shoes just delivered to my door....tried them on and yes, they fit perfectly and they look fabulous. No one does shoes like John...they are so special....can't wait to wear them out....now I have five pairs of John's shoes....and planning on a sixth as soon as possible. Very happy with them. ,-)
Fabulous new heel!
Love the heel but don't do orange or brown but love love love turquoise, red, pink, blue, red, almost any non earthy colour! Any plans to release more colors? Hope so...and love all the flue bogs I currently own...too many too admit too!
