After making many inquiries regarding whether Nikes are required footwear for the Rapture, and receiving no responses, with 6 P.M. at the International Date Line being only hours away (expecting a rolling rumble at our respective 6Ps until Eternity), it finally dawned on me that I will be shod in my Fluevogs, Pearl Harts, olive/taupe. I cannot imagine being denied entrance to Everlasting Bliss or Afterlife Arcade standing sparkling in my Vogs. <-)

Bowling shoe angels
Back in the late 90's I got my first pair of Fluevog angels and they looked like bowling shoes, were light as air and I wore them until they completely fell apart (this took a very, very long time). I used to go dancing a lot back then and pretty much danced them into oblivion. I would LOVE to have that pair of shoes again. Do you know the ones I mean? Probably '95, '96, '97ish. They were really cute and kind of Mod, you know?
I have lots of other Flus, all of which I love, but because those were my first, they remain my first Flu love.
Thanks for all the great shoes!

I love fluevog shoes, which is why when I am having a bad day/week/month, I go to the sale website and browse through in search for something that might cheer me up.
I found that something recently but on the US website - the getup boots in petrol blue and burgandy... they had my size and it was on sale! I was so excited that I let the good folks at the Vancouver fluevog store know that I am willing to pay the extra shipping and handling just to get my hands on a pair of these boots.
How very sad I was when I wasn't contacted for a week... and after some e-mails and a phone call to the store finally learned that the boots were never shipped to me. Not only did I end up being sad from a horrible couple of weeks/months but now extra sad that what I was waiting for will never get to me. (:`(
I think I will have to take a break from fluevog website for a bit now - don't want to get disappointed any time soon.

So sorry to hear about this. I know the Vancouver store has been in touch with you since, and hope this has all been resolved.
Thank you for all that you do. I have never enjoyed a line of products so thoroughly. You somehow combine art, style, comfort, and quality in all that you do and I appreciate every individual effort that goes into your brand and execution.

Discontinued Favorite Boots
Dear John.. PLEEZ, PLEEZ, PLEEEEEEEEZ can you bring back my favorite boots? I cant remember what they were called, or exactly the season I bought them.. but I called them my Urban Cowgirls. I bought them at the Haight St. store, 2003? maybe?
The closest I can get to describing them from your current designs would be to say: they had a Bond Girl type sole, but not so form fitting in the calf..more a biker boot, but with western stitching and shape. Mine were Oxblood red. I wore them until they literally fell apart.
EVERYONE LOVED THOSE BOOTS!
I have been searching for a replacement ever since. Please..Please..bring em back?

Wide-Feet Gals Salute You
Dear Fluevogians, I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my wide and barnacley feet. Your Operetta and Mini lines of shoes are a pleasure to wear. For years I struggled to find hip and comfortable shoes. With no luck until I happened upon a blogger giving you some shoe love and looking cuter-than-a-button in her green and strappy Malibrans. So thank you, mighty Fs, you've transformed a shoe wallflower into a shoe show pony.

What happened to twelve?
I am a devoted Fluevog addict (I'm not going to count how many pairs I own because that might get me in some marital hot water-some things are better left a mystery). I am still buying and loving Fluevogs, but they have also become, on occasion, a torture device. As a woman with a size 11 foot, it was wonderous when you made shoes in a size 12!! Vogs tend to run small, so sometimes your 11 just doesn't cut it. My size 11 Munsters cause me agony. What happened to twelve?

Thank you for making such GREAT SHOES!!

Bought a pair through the L.A. store online. Mismatched pair. I waited too long (just over the 8 month period allowed) to let them know. They wouldn't budge on helping me. E-mailed Fluevog. They also was not willing to right the wrong. Hmmm, this smacks of poor customer service. Oh, they did give me a $20 credit on my next purchase. I think not. I think I should have been able to send the defect shoes to Fluevog and then received a replacement. What do you think? Really sad.
Reply from Greg at Fluevog:
Hi Cynthia, sorry to hear about your situation. Please don't wait 8 months to let us know if there is something wrong with the shoes, we can't do anything to help after that much time has elapsed. :(

The Boston Store
I am fortunate enough to live just two hours north of a Fluevog store. I drove down to the Newbury St. store in Boston, and was delighted to find a really helpful staff, and lots of 'Vog's in my size (an 8). Jessamy was really helpful, especially because I wanted to try on about 10 different pairs of shoes, and when I couldn't decide between all the pairs that I coveted, each of the staff members graciously put in their two cents. Most appreciated! I walked away with a great pair of Petrol Blue Together-Hi Benatar's, and put the turquoise blue Belle Star's on layaway. I am currently wearing my Together Hi's and I am so happy with the way they feel and fit. Thanks to all who made my shopping experience a great one!
