Drawing on invaluable lessons he learned from his cartography days, John sketched up a lace-up boot that features soft leathers with pebbled surfaces, a 3.5" curved heel, and a 1.5" hidden platform of recycled cork, all on a tunite sole with rubber grips. The uber-modern Map provides you with safety and illumination while on your off-beaten path. Prepare for the Future, choose well today.
Rebecca & Dustin from our Chicago store says:
These boots are very true to size. I would recommend half a size up if you have longer feet/toes. The boots are incredibly well balanced, comfortable, easy and fun to wear. They give an illusion of heels without putting stress on your feet. Be sure to put care with the leather laces as they are more delicate than the nylon ones.

Neither rain nor snow nor 5,000 miles can keep me from my Fluevogs!
When the Maps went on sale, I was in Hawaii, almost as far away from the fabulous NYC store as it's possible to be without leaving the U.S. So I called, and they hooked me up via the Chicago store.
Sean recommended going down half a size, and they're perfect. I love the comfortable platform and funky heel, and the grommets are reminiscent of my beloved Hildegards. The only minor issue is that the laces untie themselves, but I'm experimenting with different knotting techniques.
These modern granny/witch boots are to die for!

Adore these boots - totally sexy, fun and Vogolicious. Went up a half size from my usual (super wide feet and high arch) .. They fit like a glove and the platform is so comfortable .. Great for all day running around. I'd love to see these in a high boot (like the natural evolution of my sopranos that I still have going in full swing - I'll simply die if I ever have to retire those boots). I upgraded the laces and put in lovely purple and brown ribbon to tie up ... Dresses up the boot and gives you even more opportunity to play with colour ;)
Thanks John for another wonderful show-stopper :)

I bought these KINDA on a whim. I LOVE them. They fit perfectly (I'm a non-fluevog 9, got a 9, they are perfect). They are sexy. They are amazing. I bought the brown / yellow and couldn't be happier. I've had them on all day (I can't bear to take them off!) and this might be the most comfortable Fluevogs I own. Which is saying something!

I once stood in front of a storefront having a "WTH??" moment because they were moving a beautiful vintage car inside. That feeling I had was DESTINY. Because last summer in Seattle a co-worker put me on to "a store that sells some really cool shoes". She knew I'd take the bait. I fell in love with so many John Fluevog's but these haunted me. FOR FOUR MONTHS. Well, I returned to that storefront, hyperventilated from not seeing them on display in the black, and they are mine now! Mine I tell you!! And they are crying for their sisters!LOL I'd never break up a family @>-

I love these boots! I bought them in black, lusted after the brown/yellow but practicality ruled the day! I switched out the leather laces with a lace ribbon. I have had many compliments, love the height gain as well. I was in Dallas TX running a marathon. My feet were sore after the race. I tried a pair of flats, but they weren't working so I switched to these and my feet said, thank you! I may still get the other color! Fluevogs are addictive!

Another great pair...
I am a true, blue Vogger and have been for many years. My first pair from this shoe family were the Prepare...and I have had the Maps saved on my bookmark for quite some time...looking at them and longing for them...sigh! I get stopped on the street when I wear my Prepares! Well today I had a Voglicious experience in the Vancouver store and made away with this latest Vogian Obsession. They are AWESOME and sure to catch the eyes of the public. I must add...instant comfort factor, like I've owned them forever. I'm turning into quite the Fluevogs hoarder! I do have discerning taste P-) and John and the crew haven't failed me yet!! Vog on friends!!

Buy these already!!
OMG - I have had my eye on Fluevogs for a while now and when I made my way to NYC I marched myself right into the store on Mulberry Street. After a panic attack at realizing I could only buy(afford)one pair I settled on these. The salesperson swore they would be comfy right off the bat and she is no liar. I put them to the test on Black Friday and wore them from 7:45am until 11:30 pm....still comfy! I wore them the next day too...all day. For those of you wondering if you should buy them the answer is YES, your feet deserve them!!!!!

After literally walking the heels off of my Merits I was due for another amazing opportunity in my life. I am now infatuated with my Maps in black, they are perfect with just about everything. Fit delicious from the very first day out, so marvelously wicked and smart. Many thanks to Anthony @ the Melrose shop for humoring my yearly trip to a Fluevog storefront, and offering some heel repair pieces so that I am always Prepared.

Another FABULOUS pair of Fluevogs...
Well, yes, these are fantastic! Jodie from the Calgary store emailed just to say "Hi" because she is just that wonderful, and so I naturally had to go in to see her and all the other fabulous people at the store AND maybe, just maybe (okay, maybe wasn't even a consideration) buy a pair of boots. I was thinking of another pair of I believe High Simon's in black when the wonderful super helpful staff suggested I try these instead - same eyelets, but different look! (I love my Simons) Yes, they are fantastic, yes, they are super comfy, yes, they are ME. YAY to the wonderful friends at the store whose style advice is incredible, YAY to these boots, YAY to Fluevog! Thanks for everything you all - it's super fun just to hang out there! LOVE these
