[Black & Grey]
In the late 1870's shortly after the Gold Rush, teenage prostitute Mollie Johnson arrived in Deadwood. Known as "the Queen of the Blonds," Mollie became the madam to a gaggle of "painted ladies" (one of whom was Ida Clark). In 1878, Mollie got married for the second time in her life to minstrel and comedian Lew Spencer, who was arrested shortly afterwards for shooting his other wife. Legend has it that Mollie disappeared not too soon after with a bag of stolen gold. Using soft, dusty Italian leathers with teardrop cut-out detailing, on a 2.5" Fellowship-hi heel and tunite Bellevue sole, this lace-up Mary Jane is surely looking out for you. Keep pushing west and beyond your imagination.
Sean C. from our New York store says:
Ladies with delicate sensabilities wear this shoe because the laces allow any foot shape to fit perfectly in the Mollie Johnson.

I already own these in the brown/pink combo (which I love) but I couldn't resist getting them in black as well.The brown/pink shoes are more casual looking whereas the black/gray are more elegant. Definitely my favorite style in Fluevog and I'm so glad to own both colors. As for sizing, I suggest getting regular fluevog size or a half size smaller (for me they fit equally well) The black come with black laces as pictured and bonus light blue laces. Brown shoes come with brown laces and bonus dark purple laces. Pictures don't do these shoes justice. Extremely comfortable too!

My Daning Shoes
I use my Mollie Johnson exclusively for ballroom dancing. The sole is perfect, they are stable on my feet, elegant and unique. My feet love them. I am tempted to buy a second pair for day-to-day. I have a discontinued Bellevue (pink and brown) that I love and still wear all the time. You won't find a more comfortable or sexy shoe on the market. And if you are stepping onto the floor for a dramatic tango - this is the shoe for you!

You can go to any fabric store and buy ribbons/leather string/ beads/ etc in a multitude of colors and patterns and use them as ties!! Instant fix! and probably cheap depending on where you go!
P.S. I'm heading to SF on thurs to try these on. I can't resist any longer!!!

The Beggining of my Obsession!
I Just recieved my darling Mollie J's today in light grey & blue!
Just wanted to thank Andrea at the gastown store for being so sweet on the phone (I was a little over excited)
Lol. I can't wait for the Calgary store to open <3
Funny tid bit, I was about a block away from my house walking my dog and I saw the Canada post guy walking down my stairs back to his truck with a box (shoe size in hand) I started running and waving my arm at him to stop. He was laughing at me when I got to him. :-D
For the love of Vog, I will chase down the delivery man! @>- LOL!!

Comfortable and Cute!
This is my second pair of FV shoes. These fit true to size. They are comfortable and can wear them to work or for casual. love these!

sizing not what I expected
These shoes are beautiful (I got the brown & pink, but the colors are more engaging in person than they are on the web page).
I ordered these in a 9.5 from Amazon (mistake, I know) because I have a 9.5 in Pilgrims and a 9 in Mini ZaZas.
Alas, they didn't come close to fitting. They were very narrow across the ball of my foot and even then, they were just too short in length.
It was a sad day for me. :(

I didn't think I could possibly find a 'fancy' heel even more ridiculously comfortable than my Rubens, but I was wrong. I wore these for hours the first time, walking all over the place, and the felt like slippers. Incredibly gorgeous slippers! Thanks also to Shawn at the Melrose store for going back and searching again for the black and gray ones in my size! :-D

I bought the Mollie Johnson in Black and Grey. They came with baby blue ties, as well as the black. I love them so much, first because how they look on, and second because of their pure comfort! I only wish they would make more colors of the ties available for purchase to change them up, and to add more color to my outfits. I have worn them with jeans, skirts and dresses and they always look awesome! I get compliments every time I wear them!

I've had my eyes on these shoes for ages and finally bought them, worried that they would run out of my size. I ended up getting the brown/pink combination from amazon because my size wasn't available at Fluevog. They are my new favorite pair of shoes. The shoes are simultaneously beautiful, elegant and unique. I agree with previous reviewers--the brown is true brown, not rust colored as in the pictures and the pink is definitely a pale purple. I talked to the wonderful people at Fluevog who told me to go down half a size which I did and they fit perfectly. I'll probably buy another pair in a different color from Fluevog. (Warning about buying from Amazon, the shoes looked slightly worn out, not perfect like when they arrive from Fluevog. Still I love the color, so I'll hold on to them, but I'll continue to buy from Fluevog from now on).

If you're having any doubts about purchasing a pair of these, set them aside right now and go get them! They're amazingly comfortable and look fabulous on. Wore them to work and received a lot of great feedback from a variety of folks. The photos just don't do them justice. ]:o)
