Twin Turbines |
205 Pine St
In 1985 John opened his first US store, steps away from the
Seattle Pike Place Market. Among the antique dealers, comic
book sellers, fishmongers, local farmers, and small
family-owned head shops operating in the covered arcades,
John felt right at home in his new store. With just enough
money to refit the space, John had to sell his car (a 1973
periwinkle blue E-type Jaguar) to stock his new location
(and its stockroom across the street!) with fabulous
Fluevogs. Almost 15 years later, John moved The Seattle
Fluevog Store to 205 Pine Street, right around the corner
from the first US John Fluevog store.
Continuing the Fluevog heritage by using classic partial
blake construction with soles and uppers made from
hand-polished, high-grain Italian leathers and suedes, The
205 Pine Street is a gentleman's monkstrap with two buckles,
and an instep panel, ideal for any classy, modern man.
*These particular leather soles can be slippery. If you
find this to be the case, we advise adding a topy as a

I find the shoes with medium fit in the width with a little bit more in the length.

Black Twin Turbines are wicked
I have half a dozen pairs of Vogs and bought the twin turbines in black in the Granville store. They fit like skin, look like a million and the compliments are continuous. They have become my favorites. Jeans or a suit, I am awesome in these.

More compliments than I know what to do with
I coveted these shoes from the moment I saw them in store and stalked them for a couple of months. When they went on clearance I went in store with a pair of grey pants and a blue suit to try them on one last time, expecting to convince myself not to buy them.
The yellow shoes looked absolutely stunning with both and I simply had to purchase them. They also look amazing with dark jeans and are my most complemented piece of clothing I've ever had. I would highly recommend these - they are surprisingly versatile and are also really comfortable!

very cool shoes
I wear a solid 8 medium. I had to take an 8.5 because the 8 were a bit snug - i always wear thin socks.
Love double monk shoes - these are comfy and very good looking with a blue suit!
Soles are super slippery - need to scuff them up a bit

Dream Come True
I spent two hours in the store with Neil and Janeice. I own on the Earl of Warwick Coventry, size 11, with uppers tied as tight as possible, but the foot fits perfect with two socks. These Twin Turbines are a dream on my feet, size 11, with a thin add on insole. I typically wear a size 11 nike, 10 Sperry, but 12 in Red Wing and most other shoes, with a small ankle and narrow foot. I have dreamed of a pair of dress shoes fitting so well. My Dream come true, I will own shortly.

Love these shoes
I have been looking for an Italian style double monk strap shoe in the darkest brown possible, and these are the shoes I have been dreaming about. The color is a wonderful rich mahogany, the fit is great, but remember; the double monk strap will require you to keep the top buckle open, and then strap it up after you put the shoe on. Some find this annoying, I think this gives the shoe spezzatura (cool Italian style)
