[Burgundy & Light Pink]
John continues on the mantra of "Good Soles leave Small Prints (no matter what the shoe size)" by bringing us the Promise. Featuring soft Italian, veggie-tanned leathers, complete with 'f' pattern etchings, on a 1.5" 100% bamboo heel and a molded sole that extends to the heel for extra shock absorption, the lace-up Promise keeps the fire alight. F is for all things Hope.

An amazingly comfortable heel and style. The Hopes Promise can fit short in the toe for people with longer toes/foot.

I was a sworn Bellevue/Fellowship gal until these shoes came into my life. The foot bed fits true to my usual Vog size of 7.5. I'd be about a 7.25 if that actually existed. And by "fits", I mean "allows my foot to completely and utterly relax in a happy cloud of arch support".
The low heel gives a bit of shape but isn't too stumbly-high. The brogue styling and little punched out Fs literally turn heads in the street.
Kinda the perfect everyday city shoe. Dare I say classy, yet casual?

I have these in the navy and taupe and get comments every single time. One elderly woman even stopped me on the street and told me that she "could tell they are excellent shoes because they have quality leather". These are my 9th pair, and the ones I get asked about the most. And they are so comfortable! Glad I gave them a try in the Chicago store, because they hadn't really caught my eye online.
My favorite Vogs yet!
I've been buying Fluevogs for about 15 years now and these are without a doubt my favorite pair so far. I picked them up on my last visit to the Seattle store, where Willy and Leah treated me like a queen! From the second I put them on, I was dancing and galloping through the store in glee! (No, really - just ask the staff there.) Ever since getting them home, they've stood up to my torture tests with ease and I get asked about where I found them at least once a day.

I just received my first pair of Fluevog and I'm instantly hooked!! I love my shoes and it's the most comfortable thing I have ever worn. I will definitely get rid of my other shoes and wear nothing but Fluevog. :-D

I'd been wanting the Promise for a while, sorry I missed the orange and petrol blue colorways, so I couldn't wait to get the new blue and cream ones. The blue is a true dark navy and the royal accents add a fun touch of color. Unlike the other colors the saddle isn't solid leather with imprinted Fs, they are actual perforations. This is my 4th pair in the Hope family and they are exceedingly comfortable, I hope there are more styles to come! I'm generally a 7.5 but need an 8 in this family, and in this style if I wanted to wear a thick sock I would have needed an 8.5.

I purchased these shoes in orange when they first came out (has it been two years already?). They fit my foot perfectly from Day 1 and I have worn them with everything from jeans to vintage/40s style dresses. They remain one of my favorite pairs of shoes, and apart from soon needing new heel lifts, they are still in excellent shape. I'm sorry I didn't also buy a pair of petrol blue ones when I had the chance, but I'm hoping that there might be some new colours on the horizon soon.

Much better in person
I love these shoes! I was on vacation in Seattle and had a Fluevog credit, so I visited their lovely store. I have a hard time wearing heels and tried on many pairs. This adorable shoe felt like it was made for my feet. However, they are a MUST-SEE in person because the purple color is not captured at all on the website. They fit true-to-size on my feet. I don't know whether to credit or blame my boyfriend for turning me onto Fluevogs, as they have become somewhat of an addiction, this being my third pair in less than a year!

Perfect work (and everything else) shoe!
I already own a pair of Hope Promise purple boots (which have been absolutely fabulous). These were an easy choice because I already knew they were going to be comfortable right out of the box for long days at work. They fit 1/2 small (am usually 81/2 and wear 9 in these) because the toe box is quite wide and short, but it means that your toes always have some room to wiggle and breathe after being on them all day . Love them! They go with tights/jeans/skirts... anything... and the heel is just high enough to be elegant but still "all day" comfortable.

I have many Fluevogs but my all time favourite for absolute comfort is the Promise. It has become my only ''working'' shoe as it is the only shoe I can walk for long hours in. I own 2 pairs of these and missed buying the orange/red. If anyone has a size 9, I would gladly buy it!

Promise Me You'll Marry Me!
If there was ever a shoe made for my foot this baby is it! This is my second pair of Promise, my first ones are the navy/black and white, which I wear at least twice a week. This time I got the plum brown. I can truly walk miles in these, and up to 16 hours of a day if need be. That's saying something for someone with nerve neuromas and mild foot issues. Having flat feet can be a pain. Fluevog has saved my fashionable, if not painful feet some happiness! Please Mr. Fluevog keep making this style heel and shoe style form forever? Is it possible to marry a shoe? Love, Kitty
