Rules Low |
The Joni is named in tribute to one of Canada's most inspiring songstresses. After decades of singing beautiful songs written about nature, political change, and the many wily ways of love, Joni's songs will reverberate and inspire many generations to come. John designed the Joni as a natural heeled lace-up sandal for the new generation of eco-minded songcrafters carrying the torch of truth. Thanks Joni for lighting the path -- we could drink a case of you. Love!
The Joni features vegetable-tanned rugged Atlas leathers in bright saturated summer colours, and are built on a 0.9" platform leather-wrapped recycled cork with a 2.75" leather wrapped heel. Modernizing this 1920's stylized lace-up slingback are flathead bolts and a rubber Truth soleplate, perfect for those fashion-forward, truth-seeking individuals. Natural Beauty Rules.

The Rules Low Joni fits small. Women with wider feet can go down 1/2 to 1 size. They're very comfortable!

So happy that I took the plunge and bought these beauties. Soft leather and very comfy and walkable for my narrow size 5 small feet. I also received two extra colourful pairs of shoe laces with my sensable black Joni's and recieved my package in a remarkable one day. Thank-you for making such fantastic shoes!

Comfortable and Cool
I nearly didn't try these shoes on as they don't have a lot of curb appeal on the shelf. The sales woman encouraged me to give them a chance and I'm so glad I did. They are very comfortable and they look great on. I went up a half size. I bought them from a retailer that doesn't carry a lot of stock so they only had black or beige. I bought the black which will be my go to shoe as soon as it's warm enough to shoe my toes, and now I'm tempted to order red or purple for variety.....

Love Love these shoes. Great looking and comfortable. I usually wear a size 9 (40) in Fluevog and these fit true to size. Love the laces and will also swap out some other patterned laces that I have. Magic. Buying more in this style.

So just brought the black ones. Loving them sick!
Walked all day in them today no probs and got a few shoe comments. Most impressively my 21 year old fashionista daughter stated they are really great shoes! Unheard of complements. Wow John you've done it again.went up 1/2 size.

The best sandals!
Don't be fooled - these are one of those styles that look a litlle |-) on the shelf. I hadn't even given them a 2nd glance until I saw them on Leah at the Seattle store during the sale. I was smitten - they look so different ON! So comfy, no break in period either. I had to size up 1/2 size to 10s. Do yourself a favor, pick up the teal laces to interchange - the teal really make the blue in the indigo color pop. STUNNING!!
P.S. It is true, the dye will rub off on your feet just a little during the first couple wearings, warning! :)

I Heart Joni!
Truly one of the most comfortable summer shoes John has EVER made. Plus they are deliciously colourful! I went up half a size and am happy with that decision.

Another quality purchase!
how many pairs do I have now - 12? 14? I can truly say that I love them all and yet, there are 3 or 4 pair that just put even more spring in my step than the rest every time I wear them. After two wearings I can tell that these will be another of those "extra-specials". Uber comfortable, spiffy, stylish, head-turning! One of my little toes blistered up after the first 8 hour wear but that's more a factor of my strangely shaped toe than the shoe (happens with every pair I own the first 1 or 2 wears). I had been drooling over these for a few weeks and finally snagged them at the Haight Street store while visiting San Fran and was glad to have the opportunity to try them on. I generally wear a 10.5 or 11 but ended up in a 10 and the fit is great.

Love these careful don't slip and fall!
I purchased the purple Joni's yesterday from the Union Square store. I absolutely adore them. They are adorable and comforatable right out of the box. They run a whole size smaller. I usually, take the size 10. I had to size up to 10 1/2 for these. Wow factor way up on these!
Having said all this. Caution!!! Buyer beware that the heel cap on these shoes can cause you to fall on slick polished floors. It happened when I tried them on at the store. I did not give it much thought. I stopped by Specialties this morning to pick up a pastry. I was being extra careful remembering this. I still slipped and fell!!! I hurt my Knee, hand, and maybe be my back. I'm not sure yet. Knee is bruised... OUCH! (:`(

Just bought a pair today, and spent the afternoon traipsing all over Toronto. These shoes are comfy right out of the box, and a real attention grabber. Thanks Fluevog!

Bought on a whim. So very satisfied
I love these shoes already right out the box. These shoes are so perfect for this season of bold bold colour.
True to size: I have 1 foot a size 8, other 8.5 and the fit is perfect at an 8.5. Love the green laces and I will probably purchase different laces to mix it up.
