En 1881 à Denver, Mesdames Mattie Silks et Katie Fulton décidèrent de régler un cas de jalousie avec un duel à pistolets. Ironiquement (ou délibérément), la seule personne qui fut blessée lors du duel était le sujet de leur convoitise : le cogneur et joueur en la personne de Cortez Thomson. Par la suite, Mattie devint la femme d'affaires la plus prospère et le plus d'influence que Denver n'ait jamais connu. Ses
« affaires » durèrent pendant 42 ans jusqu'à qu'elle s'enfuie avec un magnat du réseau ferroviaire pour ensuite revenir en « affaires » pendant un autre 20 ans.
Fabriquée d'un cuir italien souple et noir cette botte à fermeture éclair, en plus de deux courroies à boucle, est dotée du talon haut Fellowship de 2.5" et de la semelle de tunite Bellevue. Montant jusqu'au genou, Mattie saura convaincre les occasions
« d'affaires » de repasser.

Bought these boots to celebrate my birthday. I don't know of too many shoes today that are totally leather lined or for that matter are made of real soft leather. Whenever I am looking for special unique shoes I go to fluevog. These are my fifth pair and counting. People also stop me to comment on my shoes. I usually wear a nine but the 91/2 fits better. @>-

Another skinny calved, size 11 narrow Goddess saying, "I can't believe I finally found a stunning pair of black leather boots that fit me!" After 2 years of salivating over these boots, they are finally mine and it is a transcendental experience when I slip them on. One of the best things about fluevogs is they are as comfy as they are chic and these seem to be living up to that. The 10 1/2 fit me like a glove but I went for the 11 for better toe room and they are slightly loose from heel to mid-calf but snug up top. I can chase down bad guys, run the office effortlessly, or keep my lover trembling through the night, all in these boots!

These boots are insanely hot. I hadn't seen them before, but I went to the NEW Fluevog store in Minneapolis (YAY!) on opening day with the ok from my husband to get some "new shoes" for my birthday (double YAY!). One of the helpful girls at the store brought these to me and I couldn't believe how gorgeous they are on. Beautiful, high quality leather. Really slim fit on the calves, very sexy, and the shape of the heel and foot make my big old size 10 flippers appear girly and petite!! Another Fluevog love to add to my collection!

These are simply beautiful, totally elegant and made for skinny legs. So good to have boots that don't sag! Unless you have "racehorse legs", don't buy these. My only reservation about them is that they lack the legendary Fluevog soft comfort. Unlike most of my other Fluevogs which are like walking on clouds, they're quite hard on the feet. I was also a tad surprised for the price that the heel isn't leather-wrapped but plastic! All in all though, they're a winner.

Finally a SKINNY BOOT!
I have skinny legs. To give you an idea - boots that usually bit people with skinny legs are still too wide on me, haha... These are wonderful! I had to tighten up the buckle a bit to make it work on me, but they actually hug my leg! I don't think I'll be able to wear skinny jeans with these - that's how tight they are! I've NEVER had that before!! Oh, joy! The leather is wonderfully soft! Very good craftsmanship! I got the grey pair - beautiful.

I have had these shoes for about a month, and they are beautiful and comfy, too, even for this woman who doesn't often wear heels. Like everyone else said, the legs are narrow, I have pretty slim calves and they hug me tight, but in a good.

Hello, my Darlings...
After coveting these gorgeous boots for nearly 2 years, I finally caved, and boy, was it worth it. As a lady with wide, wide feet and, erm, "shapely" calves, I did have some problems with the the fit, but after a day and a half on the stretching machine at the Gastown store (and an extra hole for the buckle at the top, these babies slipped right on with a minimum of grunting and tugging. The beauty of these boots (apart from the gorgeous style, breathtaking colour and soft, pliable leather) is that the ankle is nice and slim, so it really shows off the shape of the leg once you get them pulled on. I also have the Pearl Harts from this family and found that they softened up wonderfully after a few wears, so I look forward to the same happening with my new babies.

I love the look of the boot but the calves fit very tight. I don't think these can be stretch with the buckle on the side. Pretty to look at but if you have any meat on your calves they won't fit confortably. :(

Mattie Silks are a dream come true!
These beauties are so amazing! They fit like a dream.. having skinny calves.. its hard to find boots that fit. The Mattie Silks are the boots to buy. So comfortable and the height is wonderful! Thanks John for making these boots!

The calf is quite tight on these beauties but it's perfect for people like myself who have skinny legs and have trouble finding boots that fit. The price is a bit steep but these are elegant, sexy boots that are always going to be in style and are the perfect addition to my growing Fluevog obsession.
