Kanawa est une botte exquise qui arrive au mollet et fait partie de la collection des Hopeful; il s'agit d'une famille hybride utilisant la forme et la semelle de la collection Hope alors que le cuir vient de la collection Prepare et les talons de 2,25" ( 5,75 cm) enrobés de cuir proviennent de la collection Thanks - c'est tout un ménage à trois! Avec une semelle en caoutchouc souple, un cuir perlé portugais, des fermetures éclair YKK à l'intérieur de la botte et une forme de pied naturelle, la botta Kanawa chante doucement des chansons pour le monde entier. F is for all things Hope. (F est pour tout ce qui est espoir).

Runs pretty short; most people bump up a 1/2 size. The calf runs mostly true to narrow.

They're still on my feet
I was searching high and low for a pair of comfortable yet fashionable calf-height boots when I stumbled on these lovelies. I needed something versatile for my life and upcoming trip to Europe. Being somewhat short, the lower shaft height actually lengthens my legs and the little heel gives just enough height without being cumbersome to walk in. I was expecting two weeks for these beauties to arrive, but somehow they ended up on my doorstep the very next day. It's been a few hours since I first tried them on and simply love them so much I haven't taken them off. I will wear them around the house (not that they need breaking in) until I have to put socks on under them and actually leave the house. Fantastic shock absorption, super comfortable for my (longish) toes, but ordering half a size up is essential.

I bought these in black (they didn't have green in my size) in November in Georgetown. I was nervous since I had never spent so much on a single pair of footware! But now I think they were worth every penny, I wear them ALL THE TIME (as long as the weather isn't messy). I even wore them with a black dress to a dressy party for a more funky look! They are so comfortable, sturdy, well-made, soft and unusual, chances are you won't see anyone with the same boots. I call them my shar-pei boots due to their loose leather folds around the ankle. I have a hard time finding boots that aren't too big around the calf and these are just perfect. Gee, maybe I should buy another pair in green now???

hi there, can you tell me the height of the shaft? thanks. They look gorgeous, Guidiesque for a 1/4 of the price. Love em!

Lovely boots but unfortunately not for those with curvy legs. Couldn't get them zipped up (I have a 15 1/2 inch wide calf). Disappointed that I had to send them back (-(

you can't but love them....
i mean, come one: they make your ankle look tiny and sexy, they're beautifully constructed of gorgeous leather, they feel divine, they don't slip in the snow, they get you compliments from perfect strangers, they keep you warm..... aaaaaand they make everything you wear them with effortlessly more stylish.
they are just the perfect boots (except for that very-true get-a-half-size-up thing). you seriously will not want to take them off.

Just had to have them!
Went to the SF Grant St store to find holiday shoes (Queen Transcendents Elizabeth Burgundy <3) and tried these on too. They only had my size in the green so I had to pass, even though it's a great color it just doesn't work for me. I kept visiting them on the website and then a friend told me she needed boots post-Christmas so I took her to the store. By then, another shipment of Kanawa's had arrived and there was one pair left in my size. It was just meant to be. I've never found a boot to fit my calves and just absolutely love these. Great heel height and rubber soles makes for great comfort. The leather draping is such a work of art. Thank you JF!

Bought these in green and I can say with confidence they are the most beautiful boots I have ever owned; I fell in love with them online & found them in Toronto store & there was no way I was leaving them behind. I'm usually a 7.5 and the 8 fits perfectly.
Do not doubt these boots...they will not disappoint.

I was so excited when the Washington DC store opened, but alas, the location is difficult for me to get to. Thankfully, your website is still super easy to use! My dearest husband bought me a Fluevog gift card for a Christmas, and I couldn't wait to put it to good use. I had been looking for a great pair of black boots to go with jeans and skirts, and I hit the jackpot with the Kanawas from the Hopeful family. I have rather athletic calves, and although they were snug to zip at first, the leather is loosening nicely. I wear a size 8 in the Soprano and Stop It families, and the 8 fits perfectly in these boots as well. There is plenty of room in the toe box and the heel is just right for all-day comfort.. Really, who could ask for a better boot? @>-

I ordered these a while back, and finally an 8.5 came in at the Montreal store and Anthony quickly wrote me knowing how much I wanted these boots! The leather is a beautiful texture and my feet fit perfectly! I am normally an 8 or 8.5, and the 8.5 is just right. Just! The calves are narrow, but not as narrow as some of the other styles.. Luckily, my boots do zip nicely but snug!. Physically, Im not a petite woman, not voluptuous but athletic build.. I'd been hoping I'd get my skinny jeans tucked into these puppies but nothing will fit besides a pair of tights! (maybe over time). I'd like to call these... subdued sexy... they look nice with a dress and great with jeans! Best Christmas present to myself ever!!! ps. I had them under the tree straight from the post office, but sitting here looking at the box.. HAD to open them and put them on! Merry Christmas everyone!! ;)

This is my first Fluevog purchase and boy, what a delight! These babies are so soft and fit so perfect. FYI: Order a 1/2 size up. I feel so sexy in these boots. I literally didn't take them off for days. They are a dream!!
