On the French-Italian border lies Mont Blanc: the highest peak in Europe and the 11th tallest peak in the world. Mont Blanc is considered the birthplace of modern mountaineering, home of the highest 'outhouse' in the Alps, and in 2009 twenty people climbed to the peak and assembled a party sized hot tub - just for the view. Suds On!
Handmade in Peru, John brings another wonder from his heart right to your feet. The Blanc is a lightweight, vintage inspired bootie with unlined leather uppers on an original Fox & Fluevog hand carved wooden last, that includes a soft pointed toe with a curvy toe spring, and an unfinished raw leather wrapped 2.5" heel on a leather sole. Featuring a hand perforated design for breezy ventilation, and satin grosgrain ribbon laces, the Blanc stands tall and elegant for all occasions.

I never thought I'd like pointy-toed boots. I never thought I'd buy white boots. And then I saw these and I fell in love. So in love I called my local store for sizing advice and ordered immediately. They're fantastic. Unlike most pointy-toe shoes they're not tight in the toe area. They are soft as, well, really soft stuff. They arrived today and I haven't taken them off since. Perfect for spring! I'm headed to the local fabric store to pick out ribbons to match all my spring dresses.

I feel pretty AND sexy in these all at the same time. As another person said, you can change the ribbons for any occasion. The eyelet cut-outs are so cute and of course, they are super comfortable.

These shoes are the cutest things, I absolutely love them! They fit true to my usual size in fluevogs (8.5). Also, a fun idea is to pick up a bunch of different ribbons, then you can change the laces to match your outfits. :-D
