The KCRW channels a little bit of Amelia Earhart into a style fit for everyone. This boot is designed to accommodate the foot of any Fluevoger. The knee high lace up has an over-wide tongue that can be adjusted for an individual fit, and a hidden inside zipper means once you've found that perfect position, you don't have to mess around (but you can still mess around with other things). Just like the rest of The Radio Family, The KCRW features an upturned toe, a wider footbed and a tunite heel and sole. Finally, the weathered Atlas leather gives this boot a fun, vintage appeal. Tune in, Turn on, and Vog out!

Doesn't fit wider calves
Is there a way to stretch these in the calf area? I did order a size up like everyone has recommended (that was good advice), BUT I can't get the zipper past the bottom of my calf. If not, I'll sadly have to return these beautiful boots.

Thank you ! Merci infiniment !
Je me suis procurée une première paire de bottes hautes enfin à mon goût personnel...je suis heureuse qu'une personne intelligente puisse enfin nous concevoir des modèles que nous aimons et portons!
Je les porte présentement et je remercie Geneviève au bout du fil qui m'a bien écoutée conseillée.Je ne suis pas une grande consommatrice de chaussures cependant j'ai trouvé en John Fluevog mon magasin préféré !

I have these in black, size 10. I wear a 9.5 in the Minis and Operettas, but find in some boots going up to a 10 is a good call so my pinky toes have more room as these (as well as my Nunis & Vera Ellens) narrow significantly at the end. The leather started out extremely stiff (very difficult to bend my ankle), but after a few wearings it has loosened and is much more forgiving. I find them to be an excellent flat boot that is easy to wear and looks nice.

Takes time to break in, then super comfy
I had to wear these about 10 times before they stopped killing my feet. They pinch on the outsides mostly and are narrow (but I have wide feet).
The 11th time and onward, they are a dream.

I love these boots but if you're buying online beware: they are quite narrow and run small in size. I'm usually a 7 1/2 to 8 and had to go up to size 9 in order to even get my foot IN.
Also - they are VERY STIFF and require quite a bit of breaking in before they stop making squeaky sounds.

Finally! Boots that fit!
I've been searching for boots that can accommodate my muscular calves (while also not letting my feet slip back and forth in the shoe while I walk) for two years. The laces on this one allow for a perfect fit! I adore these boots. They look and feel great on. I definitely recommend going up a full size--the footbeds are pretty narrow, even for Fluevogs.
My only complaint is they arrived with one of the soles coming a bit unglued. Oh well, guess I'll just have to make a pilgrimage to the Fluevog store in NYC sometime soon.

More than amazing.
I have longed for these boots for weeks and finally convinced myself I deserved them. Cost was a bit steep but, wow, when they arrived I was so thrilled. I love the fact that you can lace them to fit (I have a beautiful pair of F-shoe bondgirl boots that I can't do up all the way). The distressed leather is fabulous. I have 11 other pairs of vogs and each fits so different. These boots run narrow and, as I wish I'd done with some of the other pairs I have, I ordered up 1/2 size thinking that would help but they are still pretty tight. Lengthwise they would have been fine. I wore them for about 2 hrs and my heals started rubbing but I think it's something that will give with time. My only problem now is that I have to get more skirts to wear to rock with these boots. :)

Never taking them off (but I say that about ALL of my Vogs!)
I love my new boots, but wanted folks to know that these run about a size small. They were very easy to break in and now I seem to have worn them every day for the past three weeks. Get your own pair!

These boots are wonderful. I admit that I bought a pair in black and another in brown, because, you know, it seemed like the thing to do. The fit is excellent - a typical Fluevog fit for me, which meant I went up a half size. The lacing is perfection. When I got them home, I unlaced everything, unzipped, put the boots on, and then laced them up to custom fit my calf.
They look...oh, man. Like Little House on the Prairie met Hipster House on the Prairie. Very unique, very sophisticated, but also like you're rocking the rustic. I did find the zipper a bit stiff the first few times, but I swear that they make a sound like 'I love you' when you do them up.
These boots. These boots! They are waiting for you.

Absolutely love these boots. Usually take a nine had to go up to a ten for width but I'm finding that the ten is perfect, I'm not tripping over the shoes which can sometimes happen when I go up a size. Super comfy shoe, leather is super soft and supple and already conforming to the shape of my calf. Love love love.
