[Black & Ivory]
Inspired by the pure, early days of his childhood helping his father with his ice cream shoppe, John brings you his modernized idea of a saddle shoe. Designed upon the popular Fellowship sole and aniline leather wrapped heel of soft comfortable rubber, this design is sure to be an instant favourite. After all these years, now is the time to bring out those poodle skirts, bobby sox, and Jerry Lee Lewis records.Old Friends are Good Friends.
Half sizes available.

The Erika fits perfectly (it's true to size)!

My only complaint about this shoe is that, at the moment, it only comes in the one colour combo - they're so cute and comfy, I want multiple pairs, but it's hard to justify buying more in the black and ivory.
I bought them about a month before a vacation in which I was planning on doing a lot of walking in a big city. I wanted to be comfortable, but I also wanted to be in something more stylish than athletic shoes; these were perfect. They have since become my favourite work shoes - I probably wear them 3-4 days out of 5, even though I have many more work shoes to choose from.
I am usually a size 7.5 or 8, and the 8 is a good fit for me in these. They were slightly narrow, but they stretched well from normal wear.
So, seriously, make these in more colours! I'll buy them! How about burgundy and red? Brown and green? Grey and pink? I'll be checking back. ;-)

Confidently bought these as my fourth Fluevogs. Unfortunately, both toe boxes collapsed after 3 weeks, for no reason. I brought them back, sure the store would find a solution. It took nearly two months and many reminders from my part. The idea - glueing extra leather under the weakend part- mostly made the shoes tighter. Seems I'll never enjoy them...

I was accustomed to wearing heels and had to switch to flats after a foot injury. I picked up these babies hoping they would be a good multi-purpose shoe. I was not disappointed, they're fantastic. I often go barefoot in them (ew!) because they're not super-chunky. The leather is soft and the soles are squishy rubber; maybe not as durable as I'd like but very pleasant to walk on. I have very average sized feet and I found they fit true to size.
What everyone else says about compliments is true, I get comments all the time.

Really comfortable after a year, and still so cute!
Every time I wear these shoes people stop me and comment on how much they like them. They are super comfortable. I walk around on marble and cement a lot and they are just great!

Love love love these!
I've had these shoes for a year now and I absolutely love them. They are my second pair of Fluevogs and I just ordered my third (Bellevues Libby Smith). Fluevogs are so comfy and stylish. I get complements every time I wear them. :-D

After 17 years of Fluevogging, this is my first disappointment. I adore the shoes, but after about 20 wears the heel fell off. (:`( It seems easy enough to repair, but my customer service experience has been disappointing as well. I will get the heel put back on by a local repair shop and hopefully it stays put this time!

Looks great, not so comfy
This is only my second Fluevog pair, and I am in LOVE with my first pair (Malenas). I bought this second pair specifically for walking and for comfort, and sadly I don't find it all that comfortable. They are very pretty, though, and I always get compliments on them!

cute, comfy shoes
i got these shoes as an early anniversay present from my husband. we were vacationing in seattle and stopped at the store there (unfortunately there's no store where we live) and i had to try those and several others on. @>-
these are the ones i brought home and i love them! i have gotten MANY compliments. these shoes do run a little small, i needed a 6 1/2 vs. my regular 6.

A Foot in Heaven
I dropped in to the Gastown store on a recent visit to Vancouver, just to have a look, and ended up buying these shoes. "Comfortable" does not quite accurately describe how they feel because they are more than that; no pinching, no squished toes. I'm almost tempted not to wear them outside just to keep them in pristine condition but I'm also anxious to have people ask me where I got my shoes. Even my 26-year-old son was suitably impressed so I commend Fluevog for making such distinctive footwear.

Okay...these are probably one of the most expensive pairs of shoes that I have ever purchased but it was an early birthday present to myself. I have stared at these for over a year since they came out but I have to say that they are worth every single one of the pennies. These are so cute, get so many compliments but the best thing is that they are so so so comfortable walking all over New York City in. I walked out in these and I haven't really taken them off.
