I don't know which I value more, the shoe or the advice from John Fluevog's soul. I live in a world of exclusive art, and I am so fortunate to be with some of Canada's finest artists in the Jewelry business, my shoes reflect this priviledge. Sending a special invitation to experience my world in Jasper. Thank you John I am forever in your debt.

huge thanks to the staff at the seattle store, especially laura--who is awesome and chatted to me about our tattoos and jewelry while i sat there trying to decide which shoes i wanted. i ended up having to leave and think about it, but will be giving the store a call tomorrow. she and her two co-workers were super patient and nice while i pondered my wardrobe options. :)

Fluevogs for Polar Bears
Here's a challenge for you John. I live in the Canadian North (Yukon) and while I adore your boots, I can't wear them when it's -40. How about marrying your unique sense of style with some toasty warmth factor? I know you could come up with a boot that would turn even polar bears into Fluevogians.

Steel Toe boots please
Can someone please design a pair of CSA approved steel toe boots? I need them for work as an occupational health nurse in a mining industry. I can't submit to Open source because I an not an artist. I can imagine it is similar to my first pair of Fluevog pink boots! Otherwise I now stick to the Mini family and that heel won't work!
Please, Fluevogs are so comfortable and last forever! I won't be offended if a sample pair in women's 8, color pink is crafted just for me to test :-) I live in Canada, so it has to meet CSA standards for steel toe, cover the ankle and arc flash protection.

Where have you been all my life Mr Flue
Have haunted the website like a demented ghoul for last 2 days, even the men's shoes.... well I need to be prepared in case of a sex change. Oh, oh, oh, these shoes are all and more I have dreamt of. Cannot wait to get back to Brisbane because, joy!!! apparently there is a shop there that stocks your gems! Once I've tried a few, I will be confident of ordering more online. So far, the MUST list runs to 10 pairs. The WISH list is far greater. Thankyou Mr Fluevog!

I am getting married September 17 and as I am named after Daisy Buchanan in 'The Great Gatsby'(and my fiance's name is Jay) I wanted to go with a look that would sum up that era. I had already bought a stunning vintage-looking dress, beads and a hat, and finding the Fleuvog shoes was magical. They arrived yesterday and they have that beautiful 'X' factor that ties my stomach in knots every time I look at them. My next step is seamed stockings and gloves my mum is making me. Thank you for helping make my wedding day into the day of my dreams.
Reply from Greg at Fluevog:
Congratulations, and good luck! Thanks for letting Fluevog share your special day!

Please bring back 'The Ducky'.
I still look at the picture from your 2006 press release. I realize that this is unhealthy, in a "one that got away" / "staring at the yearbook photo" kind of way and that I should just get over 'The Ducky' and learn to love a new style but... I love it, dammit!

Coincidence in Pennsylvania
Could you tell me if John Fluevog painted pictures before he was destined to create shoes? Yesterday I bought an awesome painting at an antique shop. The artist's name looks very similar to Mr. Fluevog's. The painting I have is not named but was painted in 1961.
This morning in my local paper there was an article about a woman who is designing for Fluevog. I would love to know if I own a
Fluevog painting! Thank you.
My DREAM Fluevogs
Three little words could make my Fluevog fantasies come true, are you ready?
Open Toe Benatars.
I will say no more but I will wish upon a star every night until I see them in the window of your Prince St store.

Shoepiphany; & more malibrans
I was never much of a girly girl, until I had a Malibran-induced shoe epiphany. And then I added some Fellowships, and Hopes, and the awsome Prepare Guides, and even some sublime Pin-Ups ...
But the Malibrans and Illeanas are still my most faithful companions - sadly only in black. Was very sorry to have missed the boat on the yellow Malibrans! I hope there'll be a new batch of colours soon - a dark brown would be lovely ...
