When I first spotted these boots in a magazine I fell immediately in love. I knew I couldn't afford them at the time so I saved for months until I could. I was weary about buying such expensive shoes without trying them on and there wasn't a store in my state. I happened to be visiting a friend in Seattle so I made a special trip to the Fluevog store and they let me try on several pairs of these boots to find the right fit. They explained since they are handmade they can all fit a bit differently. Sure enough, I had to take the left shoe from one set and the right shoe from another to get the perfect fit! And they are so comfortable even for someone who doesn't wear heels.

After trying on nearly every boot in the Toronto store I left with a pair of these beauties. I wore them out the same night and they were perfectly comfortable. I don't have the skinniest calves but they did stretch over the legs of my skinny jeans -- I can hardly stay out of them! Love!!!!!

my favorite shoes, ever
i was having an online love affair with these boots for years, when finally i went in the san francisco store to try them on. it was true love! after another year of saving my money (i spent more on these boots than my wedding dress) i came back to the store to purchase. i was told that there was only one size left in the united states in my size, holy crap i freaked! but thank god for portland! my boots came quickly along with a sweet note saying "have fun with your new favorite boots". if i could only tell you the fun i have had! thank you fluevog once again. love love love!

I would glad pay for them if
Being a wider calf girl, I pray for the day when John loves us enough to let us fit into his gorgeous boots.

I got these in brown with the embossed leather on sale. I was SO STOKED to find them on sale! But the only available size was an 11. I usually wear a 10 reliably in every shoe, so I indicated on my order that I'd like a consultation from the store. My order was sent to a NY store, and next thing I knew, my boots had shipped, no consultation received. I've ordered from Fluevog online many times. My orders have shipped from Seattle or San Francisco in the past. I've received phone consultation, personal notes and candy in the box when I open it, Fluevog stickers and shoe bags, and just generally fabulous customer service. New York, where's the love? The boots are GORGEOUS, but they are roomy. I hope they don't stretch too much! Now, I just have to wait for the temperature to drop below 100 degrees to wear these beauties! Can't wait!

Comfort and awesomeness
The truth is, once I zip these boots on, they are so comfortable that I forget I'm wearing them until someone yells "COOL BOOTS!" I've worn them for 10 hours straight. I've walked 4 miles in them after a date went horribly awry. I love them!

I have lusted after these for years. But the narrow shaft means no dice for a sporting lady with leg muscles. When oh when will John offer wide calf sizes so all of us can enjoy his beautiful boots?

New SIzes in the future?
I have had a crush on these boots for a few years now. Even bought them, but returned since they did not fit. Will there ever be different sizing for wider calves? Say a size 8 foot with a 15"calf?

Babycakes baby my feet
A very comfortable boot in the heel height and the suppleness of the leather over the entire boot. Also, they have great traction in our snowy conditions in the Great White North; thanks to the waffle sole. Love my unique and practical piece of footwear John!

Another dream shoe
As an ardent fan of my pink Lover boots and my black Sugars ,and I had to get these red Babycakes. The Mini shoe family are my most comfortable shoes I own, as I can wear them on vacation and walk for hours without a problem. They fit like a dream in the calf, too! I bought them a size and a half larger to wear them with socks, like my other Minis. Props to the NYC store for the sweet message with my shoes!
