i Believe: I'm Okay
Handmade in Mexico, The I'm OK cowboy mid-calf boot features tough Mexican leathers, perfect for any roaming buffalo herding. With stained Goodyear welted leather soles, patterned brass studs, stacked leather heels with rubber lifts, buffed toes and heels, and a custom shark-nosed JF last with a structured toe, The unisexy I'm OK lassos up a unique and suave look. I Believe.

This boot tends to fit a titch on the narrow side, but the leather breaks in beautifully.

I had been wanting some Fluevog boots for a long time since I used to own a great pair many years ago. I saw the "I Believe I'm Okay" boots and thought they would be great to own and they were on sale. I placed the order and within 2 weeks they arrived. I was very excited but to my confusion I was sent the men's size 10, so I double checked my order and I did order the women's. I called the San Francisco store they shipped from and they were extremely helpful and still had the women's size 10. I was told to send back the wrong ones but I was not reimbursed the shipping. As a manager in retail, the right thing to offer would be reimbursement. I emailed several times about it and never received a response. I finally get the correct boots 2 more weeks later, and to my disappointment, they will NOT slip on. My feet run on the narrow side and I even ordered a 1/2 size up to compensate for the slip-on style. I have tried everything to get these on and nothing! Now I feel stuck with a beautiful pair of boots that do not fit and are not returnable since they were a sale item, but I feel the $200 loss including shipping fees. I still love Fleuvog but will not order online again if the fit is that questionable and I didn't even get a response regarding reimbursement. The salesperson I spoke with did offer to send me a different style when the SF store sent me the wrong size, I should have taken that as a sign. I never write reviews and it has been several months, but even on sale they were an investment for me. Lesson learned.

I loved the brown studded boots as soon as I saw them. Lucky for me, they went on sale eventually. The studs are--dare I say--subtle, and not at all garish. I love the tiny turquoise inset detail. I (somewhat nervously) ordered down from the size I normally would, and it worked out fine. The length was great, and even with a high instep, I was able to get them on without too much tugging. The width is a tiny bit narrow, but they did get more comfortable with just one wearing.

Just like slippers!
I usually like to go to the store to buy my boots, but could not find my size. I ordered the last pair in black online and took a chance that my usual size eight would fit. Total faith!! At first, they were a bit snug in the ankle, but after walking around for a day they are as comfortable as slippers. I love the blue black colour, and they are a versatile boot that looks great with pants and super cute with dresses. This is the second pair of Fluevog boots that I have bought this year. I am set for the next few years!!

These boots are easy to wear right out of the box! I wear a 9 in the Chapot's (which are perfect for narrow feet) so ordered the 9 in these. These boots are a much looser fit and fit large, for sure. So....added a heavier sock and a heel lift and we are good to go! Leather is lovely. Value from this purchase, as always with Fluevogs!

I read all the reviews and went with my normal size 11. The fit is awesome!!! Maybe a tad big, but I did have on trouser socks. Such nice leather and of course great quality boot makers in Mexico do it again. I got the tan brown and they are sort of a taupe color very neutral and will go with lots of outfits. Thanks John, will go for the black ones next!!!

LOVE THESE BOOTS
I adore these boots! My true size is 11 and I was politely informed by the lovely Calgary Fluevog employees to stick with your true size. I did and they were absolutely right! I have no trouble fitting my feet/calf's into these lovely boots! They do not pinch anywhere and I do not need to break them in at all! They are a beautiful matt bluish black colour. These boots can be worn with so many different outfits. What a great quality boot for such a low affordable price! These are my second pair of Fluevog's and most definitely not my last ]:o)

Versatile, well-made, go-to boot.
I received these lovely boots in black yesterday. It was recommended that I go down a size from my normal size 9 in women's Fluevogs. The 8 is a great fit and even accommodates a pair of medium weight wool socks. That said, out of the box the leather is quite stiff and getting the boots on and off the first couple of times was a struggle (once on, I had no trouble with the fit around the ankle, quite roomy). Thanks to the Toronto store for including a handy shoe horn in the box. It was well-used yesterday as I tried my boots with many outfits. The verdict: A wonderfully versatile, well-made, go-to boot. Now, if only I could justify splurging on the brown studded version as well! Love them!
A tight fit in the ankle
I received these today, and they don't fit around my ankle / the arch of my foot. In stockings, I could have forced my foot in, but that didn't seem a good idea! I'm disappointed, but they are beautifully made and amazing quality; I'm not returning them - I'm going to give them to a friend with the same shoe size, but a more slender ankle. These are the 2nd pair of Fluevogs I've bought, & it's great to receive something of such magnificent quality - these boots are remarkably low priced for what they are. My order was sent off by Denny in San Francisco; great customer service.
