40th Anniversary Derby Swirl
Afin de souligner le 40e anniversaire de John, la botte iconique Angel a été lancée en édition limitée dans une teinte d'or blanc frotté. La semelle angel, qui a désormais 20 ans, est toujours fabriquée à 100% du latex naturel extrait de l'Hévéa. Les semelles remplaçables de la série Angels disent toujours ce slogan populaire de JF : "Resists alkali, water, acid, fatigue and Satan." (Résiste à l'alcali, l'eau, l'acide, la fatigue et à Satan.) Dépêchez-vous avant que Goldfinger les achète tous pour son prochain vol à Fort Knox.

Flash Gordon Combat boots?
Someone at work called these my Flash Gordon boots, and the name has stuck. :) Yes, the gold will wear a bit and look a little beat up; I think this is a feature (not a bug) but if you think otherwise and want super shiny gold boots forever, these may not be for you. HOWEVER, the first day I wore these, I walked four miles in them. No discomfort, no blisters, no problems, Four. Miles. Super comfy, and flashy looking? Oh, my, yes, please!

Heavenly & heartedly worn
It took me two months of debating before I finally bought these Angels and my feet are loving them!!! I've worn them to work everyday for a month, stand/walk around in them for 9 hours and my feet have never felt so cushioned. HEAVENLY! 0:) The shiny gold (it's def shiny) gets plenty of comments! Some of it got scuffed off but I heart the beat up, worn look.
They are a true fit; I wear 6.5 or 7 in most shoes and I got a 7. They go with my all jeans: straight legged, slim and boot cut in various blues & black. These are my 1st pair of Fluevogs!!! Am looking to own many, many more. Oh Fluevog, how you tempt me ;)

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect
I have coveted these boots for several years and when the anniversary edition debuted I was beyond smitten if you can be smitten with a boot. I ride a Harley Davidson Road Glide. It has a 103" motor, 6 speed transmision Bub Rhinehart true dual exhaust system and for attitude, 16" apehangars. Image is important when you are a girl riding a giant powerful bike. I have been riding for 43 years. (I just turned 58.) In my twenties I had an accident that has slowly crippled my left leg and now I have a total joint replacement in my left ankle. It makes shoe and especially boot buying very difficult. I decided to sell my beloved old Cadillac to the junk yard. It had developed an electrical problem that the dealer called a "hot mess". Soooo I traded my Cadillac for a pair of gold riding boots. Because of my ankle issues I did an easy break in for about a week. Everything I ever heard or read about how great these boots feel on your feet is true. I've noticed a few complaints about quality in production. None here! They are so beautiful that I display them where I can always see them when I'm not wearing them. I waited to write this because I wanted to break them in, take them for a ride and walk around most of the day. I did all that yesterday. It was the most pain free day I have had in years. Laura (I hope that's right) was amazing. She only works in the Seattle store on Sundays and Mondays. You would have thought she was Western Regional Manager in charge of excellent customer service. I paid for and ordered the boots on 3/28 and they arrived the very next day. My 58th birthday! My husband I laughed because they are almost the same color as the Caddy I sold to buy them. My box was wrapped in festive blue paper. Included was a coloring book, a sticker, a lapel pin, and a hand written note from the girl, Crystal, who shipped my boots from Portland. It says, "John Fluevog loves you more than Jaguars and ice cream.", extra laces in more of a gold tone if you want to switch the black, and a soft bag that I will probably use on my head somehow even though I realize it's a shoe bag. Even my husband says they are beyond boots....they are art for my feet. John Fluevog and Company, I love you more than a summer ride under a full moon by myself when the air is the same temp as my skin, and crispy, cold, sweet juicy grapes. You know what's cool??? Bein' cool! You all are the coolest. Thank-you! Vicki Pearce

I LOVE these boots!
I stalked these boots for a while online before taking the plunge. I was concerned that the gold might be too much. After reading the reviews, I had the impression that the boots would not be as bright as they look. In my case, they are every bit as bright as they look. After careful consideration, I wouldn't have them any other way! The boots fit beautifully right out of the box. I consulted with Ramona at the NY store for the right fit and she did a great job. I am a 7.5 in Women's and the 7.5 is a great fit. I have slightly narrow feet, so wide feet may require a larger size. I am greatly appreciative of the wonderful customer service offered by the JF staff members, especially Ramona and Petrea!

I love my shiny, magic boots! The gold shows scratches & scuffs, but as far as I'm concerned, that just adds character.

bought these on black friday via the web to take advantage of free shipping, since i'm about 20 min. outside of seattle and parking downtown is hard.
ANYWAY. they just arrived and i am in love. perfect! i can tell they will need breaking in but they are so cushioned! i've got two other pairs of vogs but i think these are the new favorites!
the gold color on mine is fairly dark and not flashing, kind of a brushed old-antique look. i wear an 8 in my other vogs but a 7.5 in these (please note i like my shoes snug). the toe area is wider and i can move my toes around more than i can in my mini gorgeouses or cowboy boots. perfect with jeans (and can't wait to wear with a little black skirt!)

I was so excited when these were back in stock in my size! I've been wearing a pair of gold-sequined Doc Marten's for the last 18 years or so, and they've perhaps passed their prime. It's awesome to be back in the gold-boot world!
I ordered a 10.5, and they are a tiny bit long, and really tight across the ball of my foot. I think they will stretch just fine though. The soles are mighty comfy, and even the tongue is padded!

Finally got my Angels
I've been wanting a pair of Derby Swirls for a long time, but the Seattle store always was out of my size whenever I went down there. Not so yesterday. Turns out that a size 8 in these fits perfectly (usually I'm an 8 1/2 or 9). I did not anticipate just how comfortable these are. Was a bit hesitant about gold (the only color they had in my size), but loved that they looked great with the skirt I was wearing. Also, they made my feet feel so good that I didn't want to take them off. Shout out to Laura (Lauren?) who patiently and cheerfully brought out shoe after shoe because I wanted to see how various styles fit, and correctly selected the right size for each style. And both she and Roland remembered me from previous visits. Love the staff at this store.
Gold Washed Punker Boots
Since age 14 I wanted Doc Martin-style shoes but they never looked or fit right on me. I discovered these in May 2011 and at age 54 now have my rockin' boots: go with skirts, shorts, bathrobe and my black lawyers' trial robes (sort of kidding). :-) Comfort + style + fabulous.
