40th Anniversary Reissues |
For his 40th Anniversary, John is re-issuing his favourite styles from each decade, for a limited time, to celebrate with the world 40 years of Unique Soles for Unique Souls. A super pointy-toed, buckled tea-strap loafer with stitched wrinkled leather on the instep, the Pilgrim shoe was one of John's first women's designs which took its initial inspiration from the Victoria era. The updated design includes a rubber sole plate, 1.25" leather wrapped heel, gold lining, and features "white-waxed" leathers that will darken and age gracefully. The Pilgrim is an ode to John's humble beginnings, his values which he still aspires to, and a great testament to the genius we celebrate. "Truth and integrity since 1970"

Love these shoes
I bought these in black and love the way they fit and feel. They are adorable with pants or dresses. If I'd realized how wonderful they'd be, I'd have bought them in more colors. I hope there will be more shoes in the "Truth" family, they are just perfect.

Just having broken my leg in two places, and feeling crappy, I decided to treat myself to the coveted lilac pilgrims. For the first 5 weeks I could only wear one shoe, and let me tell you that foot looked good. These are so comfy, and as Forest Gump said, I can walk for miles and miles in shoes like that. I love them still and own them two years. I always buy from the store as I find online too much of a gamble without a try on. Thanks Fluevog for the best shoes in the world. I have 8 pairs and going shopping this week.

Having decided the only cure for having 13 pairs of Fluevogs was to buy another as soon as possible - (a course of action decided upon after consulting one Mr. John Fluevog himself - yay!) - I took myself to the Distillery with the intention of picking up the Arabellas. And these sneaky little beggars came along too. Technically, they're on layaway, but I kept putting them back on my feet between tries of every other shoe I made poor (lovely good-natured) VogBabe Tara haul out of the back, so they're practically broken in already. Can't wait until the fall to put on these surprisingly cute and quirky, MEGA comfy shoes and push my wardrobe in new directions, just like with all the other 13, er, 14 pairs. And I will definitely coat the heels with some extra wax before taking them to town...thanks for the tip, fellow Voggers.

Luv them but have quality issues
I love these shoes. I have them in red. They make me feel good when i wear them, but I dislike that there is plastic in the heel. I have no idea how it happened but on my first wear I got a hole in the heel covering and now plastic is showing. Why aren't the heels made better on these shoes? I read other reviews from folks who said they had trouble with the heels wearing out. The design and comfort are great but the prices of these shoes warrant fabulous construction and materials. We shouldn't be reading about heels wearing out quickly or soles falling off.

New favorite shoes!
I've been coveting these in lilac for quite a while and was super excited to see them go on sale. The only sizes left were 6 and 10.5 - I usually wear a 10 in vogs, but decided to take my chances with the 10.5. I'm glad I did - they fit perfectly! They are so incredibly comfortable too, I know I'll have no problem wearing them all day at work. I just love the way these look with jeans, the color and distressed finish is awesome. I got so many compliments when I wore them out last night! These babies will be getting lots of wear.

I'm soooo in love!!!
WOW! I love these shoes!!! I got these while the gettin' was good and I am so glad I made the investment! I have wanted a pair of Fluevogs forever and not only do I have a pair now,but I was able to get this particular pair. I usually wear a 9 medium width but got the 9.5 and glad I did, they fit perfectly and are comfortable. My advice? Get them NOW!

Just Plain Fabulous!!!
I bought these in brown (color is on the chocolate side) and they are just plain fabulous. I wear a 5 in the Operettas and a 6 in all my other fluevog styles. I got these in a 6 and they are perfect so I would say they are quite true to size. I have an average to slightly wide little foot and the pointy toe doesn't squeeze them at all. They do fit a bit looser with hose or thin tights, but I just use a thin comfort insoles such as Dr. Scholls and they fit great. I also walked downtown a lot, usually a mile and I don't have any problems in these shoes. @>-

Turning 50 and I feel as though I've "arrived". After years of not being able to find interesting shoes in my size,I've stumbled into Fluevog Land and have accumulated a few beauties in the past three months. I am size 11 (narrow foot) in every nonVog and have never worn a size 12 until I met Fluevogs. This shoe fits small and I'm counting on the shoes stretching somewhat with time but I think they'll be fine. These lilac pilgrims have great character. Cool and funky.

Great shoes; my third pair of Fluevogs. I get a pair whenever I go to NYC. The red colour is a wonderful deep rich shade. I was worried about the pointy toes, but they look great with dresses, and of course so comfortable.

Sigh. I now own all 4 colors in these fabulous shoes. She who hesitates is lost, so when I saw 1 pair left in my size in black, I surrendered.
