The only reason that I'm looking forward to Spring is because I want to wear my turquoise Sandra Vogs.

Canadian retailers can take a big lesson from Fluevog Staff. Exceptional service at the Gastown store. Professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you so much Chad! :-D

I lived in Japan for many years and today I saw two of the cities I lived and taught in completely wiped off the map by tsunamis. As a long time vogger, just for me, name your next Tokyos Takata, after Rikuzentakata, a place where your shoes were admired as being nothing like anything they'd ever seen before.

I realized yesterday my Fluevogs make me happy. I was wearing my blue Hopes Promises, and was thinking that they feel like gloves for the feet. Then I looked down and smiled. No other brand of shoes make me smile when I'm looking at them. They're like good friends. Haven't found shoes before that fit so perfectly, are so comfortable and to top it off, look so fabulous (I also have the Molly Johnsons, Dohjes, Gracias and Truth Melissas). Now, if only there was a narrower Mini, life would be perfect.

Cool shooz but $$$?
To say the footwear is top shelf is to state the obvious! Even men make comments (ladies, move aside!). It helps that I live in a not so metropolitan city; Reno is NOT known for its urbane outreach, so it is easy to stand out. Always comfortable, definitely on the edge and tastefully done. Will always come back for more. Just wanna know what it is with the $$$$ price tags. Not a shoe for the proletariat. I know that clothing mark-ups typically can top ~200-300%, but shoes?? You definitely have cred amongst the shoe mavens, but we all know it doesn't cost nearly what is asked for at the register. Were you to drop the price tag, you might find people spending for another pair, even if that total is higher than what you might otherwise "overcharge" for a single pair...or am I being simply naive? ,->
Reply from Greg at Fluevog:
Hi Jonathan, we understand your frustration. We only use the best materials possible, and the shoes are 80% handmade, some entirely 100% handmade. Sadly using the best materials in old world production methods, and only making factory minimums means the shoes are really expensive to make.

more women's 12 please!
I don't know who told you that women who wear size 12 only want flats or men's shoes, but I wish you hadn't believed them. Most frustrating thing ever. AAAAGHH! (:-&

the Pilgrimage to Haight St
So my friend and I went on a roadtrip, a journey, NAY a PILGRIMAGE to SanFrancisco 2 weeks ago to the Haight St store. We had been looking, wanting, loving, lusting, and DREAMING about your shoes. At least, I had. I don't usually wear heels. I'm more of a barefoot or converse or ballet flat girl because I fall. BUT!!! every. heel. I tried on. WORKED!! I bought a Mini babycakes boot. I love them. sexy, stylish, comfy, stable, I can do JUMPINGJACKS and RUN in these!!! Then we went home. I had alotted my whole tax return to your shoes. I didn't use it all. So I get home, I'm bored, we have no tv so I am forced to surf the web. Then I discover the Mini Gorgeous' OH MY GOD! comfy, stylish, and great for work. I ordered them. Tried to order the Zaza's too but they didnt have them in my size. Which they oh so helpfully helped me figure out over the internet. I love these shoes. I want more. I need more! my only request? More blue shoes??

Guides & Hildegards
What would my life be without you ? I shudder at the thought.
Your shoes have given me so many wild & weird experiences around the globe that never would have happened had I not been strutting, running, sauntering and lounging in your spectacular creations.
First - thank you for the Munster re-issue. yummy.
Second - WOW the Guides for spring. How cool - how comfortable - how HIP. They are working for me at the office and at play. We need boots for the fall with this heal .. the Prepare is a keeper and it "rounds" out my Vog stash. I hope it is doing well ??? I'd love to see it in a high boot.
Speaking of cool boots - my black Hildegards (and matching shoes - Bridget?)are both going strong (oh why why why did I not get the olive green ones too ???????) I am praying that Hildegard "aka my Tall Pirate Vogs" will have a reissue before the 40yr mark - because by then I'll be dead - not joking ! I am NOT going to make it to 90 with my current speed of life - and that's cool, because as far as I'm concerned I've lived more than 9 AWESOME lives in this one already - thanks to your heavenly shoes.
I hope to see the Prepare reincarnated as a boot in the fall ???!!!???
Thank you for all you do for the unique souls trapped on earth... xox
