Since the invention of the very first tiny black dress (by the Queen of Marseilles in 852 BC), the classic pump has been the perfect accompaniment, and the combination even inspired the very first eyebrow raise from the Royal Court. John drew the Paris with an understated, timeless rounded toe with tunite soles and a sensible & elegant 4" curvy leather wrapped heel, complete with a small platform for comfort as you walk your small dogs down the Champs Elysees. Featuring leathers in smooth or faux-devilfish finishes, or in embossed patterned suedes, The Paris will attract unrelenting attention. Take notice, John brings back the true pret-a-porter experience!
Rebecca, Dustin & Laura from our Chicago store says:
Stunning as always, the Paris is one sexy yet easy to wear heel thanks to cleverly hidden platform and incognito rubber sole. Very true to size in length with a delicate toe box that will need to break in. Stepping up in size is not recommended.

I have the speckled ones - the shape is simply stunning and for a high heel, they are a breeze to walk in. I wear between a 10.5 and an 11 in Vogs, and these ones are an 11. They stretched out a little, so I probably could have gone with a 10.5, but it isn't so much that I am falling out of them. And my calves look awesome.

Every girl needs the perfect pump yes? Even in simple black the Paris is still a stunner. Most of the time I'm a Fluevog 9.5 and these I have in a 10 because I didn't want my toes to be pinched. Lots of room in the toe box. My foot is triangular, the toes being much wider than my heel. Yes these are sky high (4 inches) however the it's also solid, well balanced and easy to walk in.

These have such a lovely shape to them and go with everything. Very comfortable, will never go out of style.

I love these shoes. I bought them in the biege and they are dreamy with everything I own from jeans to skirts. I did find they ran a little small and ordered a size bigger. I have found with all my Vogs that I have what I call the three day break in. Day 1 end of the day your feet feel like they should fall off, you might even want to sleep in them because the next morning you arent going to want to put them back on. Day 2, tape all blistered toes together and wear entire day. This day is the worst day. Day 3 wear shoes and change out all tape and band aids. Now you can give your feet a break and keep them off for a day. After that they are broken in and feel like butter. Love love love these shoes. This wont be my last pair of Vogs,

Sizing is all over the place, but...
... The shoes are amazing!
Ok, so I wanted these for an event and of course I waited until the last minute, finding that the red (my desired color) was only available in a 10.5 (my usual 'Vog size in Bellevues, Minis, and Baroques). I called Rachel in Chicago bc her name and store were listed in the comments regarding these running true to size (my *true* size is a 10). Rachel was really worried these would be too big, but I didn't have time to risk a return (and there were no 10s in the red anyway). We talked it over and I ordered the 10 in burgundy and the 10.5 in red, both from Union Square, and overnighted them (with the intention of returning the ill fitting one)
Imagine my surprise when BOTH fit
The red leather is really tough, and there is no way a 10 would have fit. The length and width are fine at that size. The 10 in purple was a little tight in the toe box, but length was still perfect (so strange). This was suede, though, and suede will stretch. After 90 minutes wearing them in my living room, they were loosening up. I still wore the reds to the event, and they didn't seem to loosen much. After 4 hours in them, my feet weren't terribly uncomfortable. This is the first 4" heel I've been able to walk in, EVER. It has no arch support, and after several hours you will start getting aches (but, guys, its a 4" heel... What do you expect?). Overall, a beautiful shoe with a drop dead gorgeous silhouette. The wood heel on the purple embossed suede makes it look like a royal piece of furniture, something to be displayed in a curio cabinet, not on the feet. I love them! Thinking of getting a 3rd in the devilfish...
Thanks, Rachel, for being so helpful!!

Getting Married In these beauties
Have the burgundy and they are the hottest, most comfortable heels I own.
Fit pretty much true to size(I often have to go up a size in vogs), leather is very comfortable and the platform makes all the difference. They cost more than my wedding dress and are more than worth it!

wicked stepsister moment
These shoes are absolutely gorgeous, but I had a wicked stepsister moment with ordering online. Usually 8 1/2 fits me perfectly, but sadly, these are just not working. Back they go and I hope to do better with a size 9.

I have these in the green ostrich and they are gorgeous, though quite narrow at the front even in a 7 which slips a bit lengthwise. I couldn't resist the devilfish, too, and have just received them... wow, they are so much more comfortable and a much better fit - softer uppers which seem a tad wider and I have them in a 6.5 which fits perfectly. The sole also seems more flexible. they are astonishingly comfortable for heel of this height and the heel is very stable under the foot. Delighted with them :)

I coveted these shoes for a long time, so I finally broke down and bought them online. As i wasn't able to get to a store at the time, so I couldn't try them on. When I got them, I realized that although the length was good, they were WAAAY to narrow to wear.
Very sad. If you have average to wider feet, make sure to try these on first as chances are they'll be too narrow.

beautiful shoes, a pinch too high for me
Bought these shoes in the speckled beige to wear with a bright purple, turquoise and silver mermaid style gown on the red carpet at Cannes. They complemented it perfectly. These are the highest heels I have ever owned; I am 6'2" in them. They are surprisingly comfortable to walk in... however they become cripplingly uncomfortable to stand around in for a long time. Don't wear them if you are expecting a lineup. If suggestions are appreciated I would say put a larger hidden platform on these to make the heel a bit less extreme. I am forever thankful that these shoes are available in 11s though, as well as most of the Fluevog line. Cheers!
