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.

Malibrans are the Bomb!
Wow, these by far are my favorites, and when this happens with a Vog, I get 'em in multiples..I now feel giddy about the yellow ones...The burgundy's I got for Valentines Day and the first pair are brown..I always get compliments when I wear them, and they go with many style oevres. As one who is shy in "HEELS" mode, these are VERY comfortable!!

Without a doubt, the best shoe I have ever owned. I've had them for two years & love them every bit today as I did when I first purchased them.

I bought the black Malibran almost two years ago and I remember the day I found them. I couldn't believe the way they fit like a glove, so comfortable that I almost forgot I had shoes on...except that I couldn't stop gazing at how freaking cute they are! I have worn them most days to work and they have performed like the workhorse they are. They last and last. Lately I have a hankering for A LOT more Fluevogs. I absolutely have to have the Zaza and I really want the yellow and red Malibrans. One can never have enough Fluevogs. Get some and you'll see what all the fuss is about! :-D

Best Shoes Ever!
I received these shoes today, and I am more than impressed. I purchased a pair of Fluevog boots a couple of years ago and have already worn out the insides, so I have scoured the website looking for another pair that I couldn't live without... Malibran became those shoes. I have been wearing them since I took them out of the box; I may even sleep in them. Sooo cute and crazy comfortable. Freaking adorable. I am wearing them with cropped jeans right now, and they look awesome.

I had the same problem with the strap but solved it by putting the buckled strap under the other one.

LOVE my Fluevogs & So Does Everyone Else
Like Cinderella sliding on the glass slipper, so it was when I slipped on my wine red Malibrans for the first time at John Fluevog in Vancouver! They fit like a glove - perfect width, perfect height. No blisters, no breaking-in required. I have never worn them without having someone compliment me on their awesome style and originality.

Considering narrow feet?
I have been wanting to buy these shoes in green for a couple of years now. When you produced the yellow ones recently, I went totally nuts! I have been to your shops in NYC and Toronto many times trying them on and HOPING that somehow I'll be able to buy them. However, the problem is in the strap which does not have the buckle - it is too wide for a narrow foot and it bumps up when I tighten the the other strap. The kind people in the NYC shop told me you were considering putting buckles on both straps. If that is true, please hurry up as I cannot wait to wear them!!!

Operetta Malibran's awsome!
A couple of years ago I was awestruck when I saw them on the website. It's true, the heel is not too high, the look is totally original, they've held up really well and everyone loves them when I wear them. I painted them in a still life, because they are so sculptural, the painting hangs in a little dress shop downtown, I couldn't keep them to myself ]:o)
