Just like sprinkles and unicorns, John brings you the Alli - a zazzy Mary Jane with 4 straps, swing toe lasts, tunite soles, and Portuguese leathers in a youthful wingtip pattern. The Alli is perfect for school uniforms and cardigans, and named after one of our favorite Fluevogers who is known for her spunk, bounce, and ability to hula hoop on stilts. "A thankful person is a happy person."

I have wanted to own a pair of Fluevogs for years now, and the stars finally aligned... these beauties came yesterday, I wore them today, and I am so unspeakably, madly, truly, deeply in the love with them. I got the gray/green in the New Year's sale. I was so thoroughly impressed with the level of customer service on an internet order... a lovely person from the LA store emailed me to discuss fit. I'm somewhere between a 6 1/2 and a 7, with a fairly narrow foot and high arch; the 7s fit perfectly with a pair of funky socks (I, like a previous reviewer, am looking forward to using these shoes to complement handknit socks!). I cannot wait to continue wearing these, and I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that these will not be my last pair of Fluevog shoes.

Grey/Green Alli's = Awesome!
I scored the Grey/Green Alli's during the New Year's sale, and am really glad I did. I had help from Ash in the Union SQuare store - he was great!
I ended up with a size 11 - I got the last pair! They look really cute! I may have to put in an insole as I have a really high arch, but they are very comfy right out of the box. :-)

Don't let the buckles get you down!
Bought these two Mays ago from my fave and wonderful Toronto store where the guys are always so helpful. They still look great after wearing them sometimes daily for weeks. LOVE.
The buckles are daunting at first (I had to do mine up each time as they were stiff) but they have stretched enough that I can slip my foot into them with only undoing the first strap. Great.
Buy them--you will look cool and fab. I have an ultra-wide foot, a bad hip (basically am falling apart!) and I can wear these all day long with no problems.
Wear them and you will feel kind of Marlena Dietrich-y Fred Astaire-ish and utterly fabulous.
First time Vogian
I just bought these shoes a couple hours ago and I LOVE THEM! I really love being able to read the reviews, it really helped me choose my shoe.
They do fit a little tight across the toe, but after a few short hours are starting to get worn in comfortably.
I think people put too much stock in shoes being crazy comfortable when you put them on-if you have to wear them in, then they will fit YOUR foot perfectly. My shoes are already moulding to my foot!
These are the perfect everyday shoe and while I have lusted after Fluevogs funky heeled shoes, I had to come to terms with the reality of my clothing style which is not conducive to a high heeled shoe.
I am going to wear these shoes EVERYWHERE...with hand knit socks!

I really liked these shoes and they do look good. I wear 8 but then. I did get them streched. the biggest disappointment are the straps and buckels. When I tried them on the sales person did them up for me so I did not think there would be a problem. Boy was I wrong! The straps do not fit the buckle it is a constant battle that I give up and put on other shoes. Did the creators not test these shoes before marketing. Such a disappointment for expensive shoes

Glorious Red Shoes
I was in quite a state of despair when I learned the red/burgundy was discontinued, but ended up finding a pair on eBay and they are just too adorable for words--I may be unable to stop admiring my feet today! I'm generally a 7.5 but in this family the 8 fits perfectly.

My feet have the wonderful privilege of being wrapped in Fluevog comfort whenever I get them strapped into these miniature miracles! I have worn these countless times since the purchase of a year an half ago. They were a little tight as first but I let them know that I would take them with me on my Europe vacation if they behaved and did the appropriate stretching that was needed. Obviously,they did not want to get left behind so they surrounded my feet like a glove like good little fluevogs should.
They have made their mark on the streets of Rome, Innsbruck, Firenze, Frankfurt, Vienna and several Canadian cities as well. Every single street they trod upon said thank you for being so kind to it!
I have received more compliments on this pair of beauties than any other shoe I wear. What can I say except that I truly lookforward to the next pair of Fluevogs that will grace my feet. ]:o)

I bought some Allies online (I live in Australia so have to do abit of trusting to get my Fluevog fix) and when they turned up they were completely scuffed on the toes. I was very disappointed that a pair of damaged shoes would be sent out to me, particularly when there is not much I can do about it from Australia. I have been a loyal Fluevog wearer for over 15 years and have many pairs, so I was very let down by this. (:`(

My 1st Vogs!
This past Tuesday I spent a lovely amount of time trying on what felt like half the store. I'd admired Fluevogs from afar for quite a while, but was unable to find the time to get over to Hollywood. Anyone who lives in LA should know why! :-D
The gentleman who helped me (whose name I do not remember. I am so sorry, lovely Fluevog employee!) helped me patiently and was friendly, knowledgeable, passionate about the product and gave plentiful suggestions (and brought out so many different styles for me to try, the cad!)
I ended up settling on bringing these Allis home as I'd been eyeballing them on the site and I love them! The colors are gorgeous and the construction is top notch. Right out of the box they are a dream to wear. My left arch is a bit different from my right and I often have problems with discomfort caused by the supports in shoes. At first the support hit me a little funny, but once the shoes warmed up a bit they have been molding to me and there have been no problems. They are a bit snug, but I personally like a tighter shoe so it is not a problem for me.
I can honestly say that these are hands down the nicest shoes I have ever owned and shopping in the Hollywood location was one of the most pleasant shopping experiences I have had in years. I already have plans for many more pairs of Vogs to come!

These are my first vogs and I'm thrilled with my choice! I must say that the photo doesn't do the shoes justice, they're even cuter in person and tried on. The photo has a bit of a "clown shoe" look, but that's absolutely NOT the case! I chose the red, and they look great on. It's a stiff leather, so expect some break in time or stretching if you need it...mine have a couple tight spots, but not uncomfortably so. Even on the first wearing I was able to go an entire work day just fine.
And here's my plea to anyone at Fluevog listening: PLEASE make more shoes in size 12! Instead of being able to select a style and get my size, I had to find out what styles came in 12 first, and pick from there. Not quite as much fun. At least there's a few, but I'd buy more if I had the option!
