[Lilac & Aqua]
John brings you a hip new ballerina flat named in honour of the adorable Arabella of Fluevog HQ. The soft
slip-on Arabellas feature walkable rubber soles, colour
combinations of soft leathers and glossy patents, and
wingtip brogue perforations for true sophistication and
style. Truth and Integrity... Since 1970.

Ali from our New York store says:
The Arabella sizes true, but the width can be a bit narrow. It is a ballet flat - so it can be a little snug.

I love these flats. I have a narrow foot so these fit perfectly. I even had to break them in a bit. Fluevog does flats well. I am not sure any flat will ever replace my old ModVog sling backs though (which are still going strong after 8 years). These come close. I got the lavender pair. Awesome!

Amazing shoes! I get non stop compliments on these lovelies! I have the teal/brown combo, and will get the lilac ones too! I did not need to break them in at all, and I usually do with most shoes! I can work a full day in them and my feet feel fresh at the end of the day! I am usually a 10.5, but got these in an 11 as I bought them at the Granville store in Vancouver.

COmfy but serious breaking in required!
I got these in an 8.5 which is bigger than what I normally buy after a long email discussion with the store, since I have wider feet and these run narrow. I love them, and they are so gorgeous but the first few weeks were a killer! The elasticated back cut my heels to shreds requiring industrial strength band-aids and I had to limit my wearing them to manage breaking them in versus reopening the blisters. Nowadays they are super comfy and only blister my heels if they are on for a very long time. I would only caution that you be careful where you store them; somehow I left a receipt nearby and the ink imprinted a number on the white of the toes... How that happened I have no idea!

I'm usually a size 8 and I had to go up a 9.5. But they fit perfect! look classy and are super well made. Nice without socks and nice with. They have a little glossy varnish which I really like the look of.

Ballet flats that are not boring
I had to go up a half size in these-- I found them both a little short and narrow. Even so, they were still a little snug, but the leather stretches out just enough for them to feel comfortable. I don't like most ballet flats because they are usually boring and cheaply made. But I love these!

Require a lot of breaking in
These shoes are sweet and sassy, and are now very comfortable though they took quite a while to break in.
Even though the shoes fit the proportions of my feet - the elastic across the top of the toe box presses down which can be pretty uncomfortable.
I had them stretched and softened and it still took some painful walks to soften them up.

look great, but blisters!
I've worn mine twice so far, hard to break in, tons of blisters the toe box is small. Bought a size 11, 1 size up from my normal size of 10. Hoping they'll break-in through time...but they look good!

Perfect for dancing the night away!
I love these shoes so much! They are so stylish, sassy, and comfortable. They took a bit to break in but once they had loosened up, they are great. I wore them on my wedding day and I wore them with joy all day!
Best flats ever!
when in Seattle this past week I was merely going to peek in your windows.... I don't need any new shoes right now. But I saw these and had to try them on. Walked around the shop and had to have them forever. They are breaking in so nicely and quickly and I was able to do a lot of walking the very first day and never needed to take them off til I was done for the day. I love the Integrity Arabella!!!

These are absolutely amazing! They are very much like the Danielles but with a little more spunk. Please release these in more colors!
