Brian is the best
My sister Erin and I visited your Queen st Toronto store on Wednesdaty past. I have Vogged for over 25 years, but my sister Erin was a newbie. Brian was a. Total treasure. He walked her through many shores until she found THE pair. The pair I wanted is now on order. Brian is a gem. Total gem. Love him.

LOVE, LOVE, THE BOOTS!!
Purchased my first pair of Fluevog boots...they arrived the other day...orded the olive, Patti..LOVE THEM!!
I was nervous they were the wrong size, as they were a bit tight to get on....but once on they are like slippers!!
Being a hairdresser, I can wear them all day without the dogs screaming! Happy to have found a comfortable, stylish boot...THANK YOU!!

Crystal in the Portland store is my new BFF! She patiently helped me pick out my 16th pair of Vogs today. Thank you Crystal and JF for them amazing shoes and service!

Purpose | Objective
These shoes would look awesome with straps made with a combination of patent and suede. The textured leather would have a better effect if it was a different color, too.

Catherine make Washington DC Rock!
Until last Friday I had never been to a Fluevog store (only this site) and had no idea what I was missing! Catherine took great care of me and the two friends I dragged in my wake. I knew that a trip to the store was on my Washington DC "to do" list, but I'm still thrilled I left the store with not only the shoes I'd lusted after online but a 2nd pair as well (shipped from a store on the West Coast)! Great Shoes, Great Service and Great People!!! Thanks Catherine You (and Fluevog) Rock!

First - let me say that I LOVE my Vogs - and all them out there! So this is comment is in no reflection to the products :)
I wasn't going to write this - but after talking to some friends (who own WAY more than me -- sad to say!) they urged me to comment about my recent experience at the Granville store in Vancouver.
It was horrible. I walked around looking at shoes - picking up some ... browsing - and I had to ask the lady there for help ... I felt like I was disturbing HER day. I had no help with fitting - she went back behind the counter. I was left with this box and to be on my own. (very odd experience for me) - I wasn't asked how to fit - if they fit. And worse - I wasn't asked to try something else on. I had full intentions of buying a lovely pair - and walked out totally upset over that.
And then to find out that one of my friends had the same experience in the same store 2mths before me - that was upsetting - because her to would have bought a new pair. :(
I'll gladly hit up the Gastown store next time I'm in town to get my pair ...
(And again - this is NO reflection on the shoes - since they are simply the BEST!!)

Please, please, Operetta Viardot
Dear, Dear John,
Please please please make more Operetta Viardot shoes, in all the wonderful colors...goldenrod, brown with periwinkle, and so on. They are my FAVORITE SHOES and, sad to say, are starting to wear just a bit. I need a periwinkle replacement button for the brown ones, and a white replacement button for the goldenrod, but mostly I want MORE of these, peach, pink, tan, whatever strikes your fancy. Oh please?
Most sincerely, your fan Helen

Okay! Okay, I'm a fan!
The BBC's make my 3RD pair of Fluevog shoes, and I am hooked!
When I first saw these, I thought they were pretty, not nice looking in the male sense, and now I own them and still think the same.
Extremely well made, but light and delicate, a masterful feat.
I have these in the Camo and brown, and that match is really lovely to look at.
I honestly didn't know how I'd like Fluevog shoes, but now I own 3 pairs, have been made a believer.
Because the soles are thin, I don't guess these are boots I'd take on a hike, but for general getting about, nice and comfy.
Warning, guys with small feet, your BBC's just might walk off on the feet of your girlfriend!
I saw on another site the BBC's were produced in a red color? Could you please, please, bring that back?

A funny thing happened to me on the way home from a concert in Denver. I just purchased a pair of Tolerance Nebel's and I felt like showing them off so I stopped into a local Irish pub and as I bellied up to my perch, the bar keep asks us what we want to drink, well the lad sounded like a fella I spoke to over the phone a couple days before in the Denver store while inquiring about my new kicks, and sure as sh@t its the store manager Anthony. Talk about crazy. Christening my Nebels with a pint of Guinness and the store manager what a way to break in my new Vog's!! Needless to say Anthony went above and beyond to make sure that I knew when my new "snug" (Irish slang for pub/booth) runners would arrive for a night on the town. Gotta love the vibe Fluevog's bring to your day. My new lucky shoes!! Sláinte

Connecting Contries via Fluevog
My finding of Fluevog could not of happened at the worst time, but it buffered and helped ease what turned out to be the most heartbreaking event in my life. The journey to find "those shoes" helped me transfer my loss to a gain, but it wasn't the shoes that added the finality to my journey, it was the kindness and sensitivity of a fellow shoe (and Fluevog) lover.
Transaction took place via Fluvog Market Place, agreed upon price and monies sent, all that was needed was the address to send me the shoes. With that I decided to share my story with Sharyn the woman I bought them from, and what transpired after is pure kindness that had no boundaries.. Below is the email I enclosed with my address..
If you don't mind I want to tell you about my journey for these shoes, in August my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer, the doctor came in and told us. We were shocked and nobody wanted to say anything, the doctor kept asking us to ask the questions necessary, but my mom and I just kept looking at each other speechless. Silence is a killer. I looked down and saw those shoes (Queen's Transcendent) on the doctor, I then asked where she got such beautiful shoes. My mom then looked down and also agreed on the unique look to them. The doctor was taken aback at our curiosity over her shoes and lack of ability to talk about cancer, we laughed and continued to focus on the shoes, not cancer. And for the next 4 months my mom and I talked about those shoes, not cancer...we searched ebay, craigslist kijiji and Fuevog market. It was fun and agreed that I could never pay full price, she said it's not practical. You don't make what a doctor does. She passed December 11 2013 but my Dad and I continued to look and even updated our fb status about our hunt, with each day determined not to give up. We told her we would find them..lol and at a good price.... And here they are!!!
I hope this brought a smile to your face...
Sharyn responded with appreciation and condolences it was the end to the search I found the shoes and ended the journey, I succeed in the final endeavor my mom and I started. When I picked up the shoes to my surprise Sharyn had added a beautiful card with sincere words of appreciation for not only my loss but the meaning this journey meant for me. She also refunded some of my money, in each shoe was stuffed with the bills. I can't put into words the emotions that overcame me. Purely unexpected and not necessary. A total stranger from another country crossed the boarders and connected with me and all for the love of shoes!!! (Of course not just any shoes FLUEVOG shoes)
