Since the invention of the very first tiny black dress (by the Queen of Marseilles in 852 BC), the classic pump has been the perfect accompaniment, and the combination even inspired the very first eyebrow raise from the Royal Court. John drew the Paris with an understated, timeless rounded toe with tunite soles and a sensible & elegant 4" curvy leather wrapped heel, complete with a small platform for comfort as you walk your small dogs down the Champs Elysees. Featuring leathers in smooth or faux-devilfish finishes, or in embossed patterned suedes, The Paris will attract unrelenting attention. Take notice, John brings back the true pret-a-porter experience!
Rebecca, Dustin & Laura from our Chicago store says:
Stunning as always, the Paris is one sexy yet easy to wear heel thanks to cleverly hidden platform and incognito rubber sole. Very true to size in length with a delicate toe box that will need to break in. Stepping up in size is not recommended.

I went to the store in Toronto to try these on because, based on the reviews, I wanted to make sure they fit. I tried on an 11 in store and they fit quite tight around my toes. So I opted to get the 11.5 online. OMG. I bought the beige. The shoes are so pretty. I'm not exactly used to walking around in any kind of heel, so I'm going to have to practice with these (also to break them in). I bought the shoes for my wedding in August and I hope I don't cave and wear them before then ahahaaa.

Color not pink/flesh
I was looking for a nude color pump and bought these. They are grey with white spots rather than pink/flesh with sparkles. I like the pink tone more but they still work well with the outfits I was planning to wear them. I'm still breaking them in but I'm thinking they'll be an everyday work shoe. Which is saying a lot for 4" heels. I ususally wear 2-3" Clarks (Artisans.)

love these - so comfortable!
I have the black devilfish and they are awesome! They are very comfortable for four inch heels. I had an event that went from the afternoon into the evening. The shoes eventually began to hurt - but not for hours! They are beautiful and I got tons of compliments.

Fibromyalgia Sufferer Finds Love With Heels Again!!!
I've been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia for well over 7 years now, and have had it for much longer. It has been ages since I have been able to wear a pair of heels, let alone 4" heels! Not until I took a gamble on these shoes that I've coveted for years. The burgundy is a beautiful shade and is soft as can be. Since the weight goes to your heel, it makes the shoe so much more comfortable, the stress off of your lower back is relieved and your feet are able to be much more comfortable for longer periods of time. This gal has been convinced! I am now a Fleuvoger for life!

I have the speckled ones - the shape is simply stunning and for a high heel, they are a breeze to walk in. I wear between a 10.5 and an 11 in Vogs, and these ones are an 11. They stretched out a little, so I probably could have gone with a 10.5, but it isn't so much that I am falling out of them. And my calves look awesome.

Every girl needs the perfect pump yes? Even in simple black the Paris is still a stunner. Most of the time I'm a Fluevog 9.5 and these I have in a 10 because I didn't want my toes to be pinched. Lots of room in the toe box. My foot is triangular, the toes being much wider than my heel. Yes these are sky high (4 inches) however the it's also solid, well balanced and easy to walk in.

These have such a lovely shape to them and go with everything. Very comfortable, will never go out of style.

I love these shoes. I bought them in the biege and they are dreamy with everything I own from jeans to skirts. I did find they ran a little small and ordered a size bigger. I have found with all my Vogs that I have what I call the three day break in. Day 1 end of the day your feet feel like they should fall off, you might even want to sleep in them because the next morning you arent going to want to put them back on. Day 2, tape all blistered toes together and wear entire day. This day is the worst day. Day 3 wear shoes and change out all tape and band aids. Now you can give your feet a break and keep them off for a day. After that they are broken in and feel like butter. Love love love these shoes. This wont be my last pair of Vogs,

Sizing is all over the place, but...
... The shoes are amazing!
Ok, so I wanted these for an event and of course I waited until the last minute, finding that the red (my desired color) was only available in a 10.5 (my usual 'Vog size in Bellevues, Minis, and Baroques). I called Rachel in Chicago bc her name and store were listed in the comments regarding these running true to size (my *true* size is a 10). Rachel was really worried these would be too big, but I didn't have time to risk a return (and there were no 10s in the red anyway). We talked it over and I ordered the 10 in burgundy and the 10.5 in red, both from Union Square, and overnighted them (with the intention of returning the ill fitting one)
Imagine my surprise when BOTH fit
The red leather is really tough, and there is no way a 10 would have fit. The length and width are fine at that size. The 10 in purple was a little tight in the toe box, but length was still perfect (so strange). This was suede, though, and suede will stretch. After 90 minutes wearing them in my living room, they were loosening up. I still wore the reds to the event, and they didn't seem to loosen much. After 4 hours in them, my feet weren't terribly uncomfortable. This is the first 4" heel I've been able to walk in, EVER. It has no arch support, and after several hours you will start getting aches (but, guys, its a 4" heel... What do you expect?). Overall, a beautiful shoe with a drop dead gorgeous silhouette. The wood heel on the purple embossed suede makes it look like a royal piece of furniture, something to be displayed in a curio cabinet, not on the feet. I love them! Thinking of getting a 3rd in the devilfish...
Thanks, Rachel, for being so helpful!!
