Queen Transcendent |
Designed by Fluevoger Jody Elizabeth for John's world-reknown Open Source Footwear Program, The Queen Transcendent Elizabeth features a unique heel inspired by Cabriole legs of 18th century Louis XV furniture, specifically the "ball and claw" foot design. Using a Bellevue last, a 3.5" ornate "ball and claw" heel, a 0.75" comfy platform, and tunite soles, The Elizabeth demands sophistication and class. Smooth and glossy Polido leathers with a rub-off finish give The Queen Transcendent Family an antiqued and timeless look. Exceed your own expectations.

The Elizabeth is a gorgeous shoe that fits a bit narrow. Unless you have particularly narrow foot, you may have to size up a half size to accommodate the width.

Bring on the SHOE-OFF!
My husband spotted these shoes in San Francisco - we were window shopping on a Sunday morning before shops had opened. He used his entire body to try and block my view because he knew I would have to have them. I bought them in green a full size larger than I usually wear (I am a 9/9.5 and got a 10). the fit is perfect on my left foot; still a bit tight on my right foot which is half a size bigger. The first time I wore them was to a wedding and they gave the bride a run for her money. They were comfortable after being on my feet all night and then walking approximately a mile back to the hotel. Everyone wants to know about these shoes when I wear them. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Gorgeous shoes, fit a little small.
I walked into the Queen St. store in Toronto and fell in love. The claw foot heel stole my heart, and I knew I had to have them. I eventually purchased a pair in the burgundy, and I get compliments every time I wear them. I had to go up a full size from my usual, though - thanks, Fluevog, for making these in a size 12!

That's the only word to describe these amazing, classy and very comfortable shoes! They are clearly my new love. You ask if one would recommend Fluevog to a friend or college? I said absolutely. I must say however, I will hesitate in doing so, as I want to be the only one in the room wearing these timeless treasures! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!! Can't wait to add more to my collection!

Best birthday present ever................
My brand new PURPLE queen elizabeth's arrived today (with my new Bellvues) and I am sooo happy. The Fluevogian elves were superswift in delivering my new gorgeous shoes - just in time for my birthday. I wondered if a 4th pair of purple Fluevogs would be a bit over the top. I was wrong. They are a necessity. Thank you Fluevog!

Gorgeous purple heels
Not a heels-type girl, but these, oh my. Tried them on while stopping in Calgary, didn't want to take them off. Jody was super awesome and sized me up a half size: perfect. Feel like an amazonian elizabethan.

Since the first time I saw these shoes I have fallen in love with them. The heels are so unique. Then I discovered them on European online site Raspberry Heels (www.raspberryheels.com) and I did not wait a minute. Overall, the service of the EU seller was excellent, very professional, with perfect help on sizing. I received my order within few days and enjoyed the lovely postcard that came in the box. About the sizing: I wear 7.5 in Zazas and 8 in others Vogs families (Amandas, Baroques); I have medium wide foot. I agree with other reviewers that this model run small and narrow. I debated going whole size up, but at the end I chose just ½ bigger (8.5) as 9 might be too long. The fit is OK in length but my cobbler had to stretch them quite a bit (and I do not have wide foot). If you have wider foot I recommend going whole size up.

Additional colors for the Elizabeth's?
I love my Elizabeth's! Is it possible to also offer them in black with deep dark purple? Colors inspired by a Raven.

Hotter Than Queen Lizzy Herself!
These shoes are GORGEOUS! I had been looking for a dressy black Mary Jane, and these looked like they would fit the bill. I ordered them online, and the process was surprisingly fast. I ordered them on a Friday morning and got them on Tuesday. And when they arrived, I seriously thought I was going to have an orgasm by just looking at them. Then I tried them on, and my heart broke. My twin sister (who lives in a city with a Fluevog store) tried them on and told me to size up from my regular 6.5 to a 7. That is what I ordered, and they were still too small. I will admit that I have slightly wide feet (I can wear most B width shoes in 6.5). Because the size 7 was too small, I considered returning them and giving up, but I kept looking at them an couldn't tamp down my lust for them, so I got the 7.5, and they fit like a dream! Because they were a whole size bigger than what I normally wear, I was worried that my feet would look huge, but they don't. If you are unsure of these because of size, I would recommend that you order at least 1/2 if not a whole size larger.

I have these on layaway, but I tried them on in the Boston store when I was in the area planning my wedding. Well, I found my wedding shoes, that's for sure! I was going to wear my Mini Lovers, but that quickly changed!
I have smaller feet, so I found that the size I typically wear (6) worked just fine, I didn't need to go up a size. Getting them in green and I think they'll look fantastic with my dress paired with black and white striped tights (because I can!).
Extremely comfortable (once you put the second shoe on) and I felt incredibly stable.
Gorgeous color, amazing design, and lovely all around!
