Being a big fan of public radio and road trips, John has spent a lot of time in his Flueguar listening to PRI (Public Radio International based out of Minnesota). Besides loving This American Life, John also identifies with PRI's core principles and values of celebrating diversity, mind-expanding global ideas, and the power of public media to encourage and nurture arts, culture, and the human spirit. In this vein, John was inspired to create a vintage- looking boot for the working Fluevogers using rough, aged Italian leathers with a hip-cat turned up waxed toe for that burned and tarred look. Featuring a strap and buckle on the instep, an industrial zipper on the inside calf, and a baggy fit design, The PRI boot allows you to have a versatile fit and style. Walkable tunite soles with a resoleable soft rubber topy make the PRI a comfortable and functional boot in your repertiore. Tune in, Turn on, and Vog out!

I purchased these boots for the "Winter turning into Spring" season. They are perfect for this time of year. Light weight and great with spring fabrics.

I purchased the Radio PRI boots a year ago, and wore them through the winter, by the end of the season they were showing signs of wear; the sole is seperating from the leather boot and the zipper is no longer functioning. I just called the store and spoke to a rep asking what they could do for me and all i got was an explaination of the eight month return policy. I am very dissapointed in the response and quality of the shoe and would not reccomend them.

These are by far the GREATEST boot ever!!! I do not own a pair but my daughter does. She travels extensively all over the world. She does not take these with her as she does not want they to get ruined in her suitcase. Therefore, she leaves them at home. My teenage daughter and I sneak them every chance we get. Only thing we love about her leaving is boring the boots. Everytime they are worn I receive compliments. Comfort like no other! One day I shall own a pair.

These are the best boots I have ever owned!! The fit is fantastic. The comments I receive are too much! I cannot say enough. Everyone wants to know where I got them. They go great with my purple cape! I feel fantastic riding my broomstick in these magic boots! :-)

Heavenly Purple Boots!!
I want to wear these EVERY day! I have gotten so many comments since I snagged these beauties on sale it is ridiculous! Words cannot express how great these are on the foot. Everybody should have a pair!

I would like to file a complaint against John Fluevog. After finally being able to own a pair of my own, I purchased the Radio in purple. You have ruined me for any other boot or shoe out there - I have even slept in them. I can't say enough -I rear them almost every day and always receive a compliment every time.........now I have to save for my next pair.

I have long coveted Fluevog boots, but my womanly calves kept me from my dream. These fit awesome right out of the box (Rebecca at the Chicago store was FAB at helping me with fit). The toe box initially felt narrow and the heel rubbed a little, but after one whole day in them, they have softened up and are perfect. The purple is lovely and not too outrageous for my professional job. The buckles do jingle when I walk, so these will not be my "stealth" boots! So happy!

Adorable and super comfy
I got the last pair in purple from the L.A. store, size 6. I couldn't resist them. They look great even on my short legs (I'm 5'1"), go on super easy, and camouflage my thicker calves. They look great on bare legs, or with hose, tights, knee socks, and OTK socks. I am going to have a lot of fun with these babies. @>- By the way, I have to give a HUGE shout-out to Shawn at the L.A. store. I needed another pair of knee-high Fluevog boots stretched (Operetta Zinka), and he happily did it for me even though I didn't buy them at the store. (The Zinkas, btw, are also GORGEOUS -- I bow down to John Fluevog!). As an added bonus, Shawn also made me his guinea pig for the new Spring '11 collection. I'm so glad I didn't have any other appointments. Needless to say, I had one of the best afternoons ever!

These boots are AMAZING! :-O
They were first pair of fluevogs and now I have 3 pairs! :) I can now say I will be fluevoging for years to come.
The radio series fits so beautifully and I received many compliments on them since I have them. :-D I definitely made a great choice on buying these boots and am currently a happy fluevogger! ,-)

Beautiful - except for the blisters
These boots look fabulous - cool style, cool colour. I wore them yesterday for the first time and let's just say things didn't go so well! The stitching around the heel kept rubbing and I wound up with a blister on each heel :(
Has anyone else experienced this? Any advice?
