Kitschy Kitschy Boom Boom |
The Liz Mary Janes are a delicious recipe combining the fit of The Hopeful Family, aniline leathers from The Mini Family, rubber soles from The Hope Family, and a modified 2.5" Wearever heel. They're so comfortable and stylish, that they were selected (in custom colours) as the official uniform shoe for all female flight attendants on Air Canada rouge! We challenge you to name another fashion shoe brand that is so dependable, it's been chosen to fly so high. With contrast piping, double buckles, and a new attitude, let The Liz be your sidekick on all your Fluevog adventures (in the air or on the ground).

The Liz is great for wider feet, but please go up at least a half size! These little beauties have been running on the short side and mostly everyone has gotten a half size bigger then their true size.

runs small? i don't think so...
Just want to put my two cents in... with the caveat that I just bought them so haven't really worn them around yet. I'm a 9 1/2 or 10 depending on the style of shoe, and I ended up with a 9 1/2 - not only NOT going up a half-size, but being at the smaller end of my range. So that's my dissenting voice on the matter.

New faves! (and they definitely fit small)
If you like pink but won't come at actual pink shoes, these are for you (and the pink is a bit sharper than girly pink). They are super comfortable: the heel is just as stable as the Operetta. Online buyers: I had to go up half a size (thanks Haight store experts!) and have only just squeaked in size-wise; and the toe box looks wide but narrows suddenly at the third toe! New faves! :)

so sad these didn't work for me
I absolutely love the look of these shoes and wanted them to work out... but after 3 tries decided its a no-go : (
I started with my normal 8.5 via online and was tooooo short (small), so took them back to Chicago. Bekki was fantastic and we ordered 9s... those were too small, too. Brought those back and ordered 9.5 ---- nope... still too small. So simply returned this one. Have never had such luck with Vogs before so not sure why these are running so small.

Oh, these shoes! Got the teal ones. They are so amazing! Cute beyond belief and really comfortable. I was worried that they wouldn't pair well with many outfits due to the color, but I was totally wrong about that. I wish I could afford to buy them in black, too.

Rachel in Boston Rules!
I ordered these in my usual fluevog size of 6. They were way too tiny. My toes were smooshed. I was disheartened because these are the raddest shoes on the planet. So I called the Boston store and asked Rachel helped me figure out if I needed a 6.5 or a 7. After careful deliberation, I went with the 7. Two weeks later I am wearing this nifty pair in black and white with pink trim. I base my outfits around the kitchy kitchy boom booms. I want to get the pair in teal too. If I do, it will mosdef be in a 7. Thanks Rachel!

Lucky 7th pair of Fluevogs and the most comfotable yet. Great online advice to up-size from my usual 8.5 to 9 and the fit is just perfect for my slightly wide foot. Beautiful flattering low-cut toe line. Leather is soft and supple with no breaking-in needed. Colour teal is strong and deep. Great styling for work and weekend. Thank YOU!

I wanted to much to love them...
These are my first pair of Fluevogs.
I ordered them giddily, in anticipation of joining the ranks of Fluevoggers the world over who express such exquisite taste.
They arrived at my door, exuding in person all the aesthetic charm of their photographs.
However, the love affair came to an abrupt halt shortly thereafter.
I generally wear a size 11. Having seen some reviews that caution that Flues can run a bit short, I thought I'd play it safe by ordering the largest size available (which happened to be 12).
I even checked the box to have a size expert contact me prior to shipping (which, alas, never happened).
Sadly, it appears that a size 12 on planet Vog is not at all comparable with the rest of the known universe (at least, not with this particular craft).
I can put them on (such a cruel tease), but that's about it.
Walking, at least in their new state, was simply not an option.
Being that 12 seems to be the largest size in which one can purchase Flues for women, exchanging them was not a viable solution.
That has left me no other choice but to break out my trusty shoe stretchers and hope for the best.
I'm afraid there is no future for me in Vogland.

This shoe is an excellent hybrid of some of the most comfortable Fluevog families, spiced with its own charming details and I do hope to see more from this line. I didn't think I needed yet another pair of black and white shoes, though I did need something pink, but not screamingly so. The pink soles and accents fit the bill perfectly. My favorite work shoes have long been any of the Minis, but now the Liz is right up there comfort-wise. I am an 8 in the Hope, Hopeful, Wearever and Bellevue families, 7.5 at times in other families and judging by comments I went with the 8 and they are just right.

Like out of a fairy tale...
I ventured to San Francisco on a work trip and just knew I had to visit the Haight Street store. They were sweet to send me public transportation directions from my hotel. When I arrived they were busy, and the lovely Monika was very patient as I tried on pair after pair. But the amazing Liz in teal stole my heart. Out of all the shoes and boots I tried, they fit my foot the best. I am a 10 in non-Vogs and got the 10 in these. I am a 9.5/10 in the Qtee, 10.5 in the Guides, 10 in the Malibran, and 9.5 in the Viardot. I wore them the next day at the conference and got compliment after compliment. Recently I wore them to an author reading and three elderly ladies told me they looked like they were out of a fairy tale. Score!

Wore these for a long weekend in New Orleans, fresh out of their box. We walked A LOT. Got complimented several times, danced tango in them on Royal St. Result: no pain, no blisters. The toe box is a bit short, but the 9.5 (my usual size) was ok. They are also a tad wide on my smaller foot. However, no problems. Wore them with lace nylons as well as socks. Now I want the other color... ,-)
