John Fluevog to open a new store in Ottawa
John Fluevog Ottawa


April 2014- John Fluevog Shoes

John Fluevog has recently been toying with the idea of adding political genius to his robust resume, but he’s never quite figured out how to get his foot through the door of parliament. His inspiration came from a very recognizable Greek myth during a recent story time – he needed to find a way to infiltrate Canada’s capital, and what better way than bringing John Fluevog Shoes to Ottawa. John’s newest store (and Parliament Hill Trojan horse) will be cozily situated in one of his favourite capital city hangouts – The ByWard Market.

Canada is a world player and has influence around the globe, and it feels good to be at the seat (and feet) of that Canadian influence. We opened in DC not too long ago, and it's seemed a little unfair to not be in the capital of our own country. (This way my political opportunities are wide open.)

He’s been holding out for the perfect location (for a very long time) and he’s finally found it at 61 William Street. The ByWard Market is one of the oldest and largest public markets in Canada and a favourite spot for locals and visitors. It's a hub of fresh produce, local artisans, cafes and restaurants; and we can’t wait to throw Fluevogs into such an amazing mix.

John Fluevog Ottawa

We’re lucky enough to be celebrated around the world, but we're grounded by who we are as a Canadian company. Ottawa is pure Canadianism but it has a culture all its own. It's a privilege for me to be to open here - as a kid, we learned all about the city and what it stood for, and now to be part of that culture... well, as I said, it's a real privilege.
We know that there are already a lot of feet sporting Fluevogs along Rideau Street, which is why we are so thrilled be to able to finally bring you a full-fledged, completely Fluevogified shopping experience right in the heart of the city. In addition, on opening day at John Fluevog Ottawa, John will release limited edition shoes that will only be available at John Fluevog Ottawa. The store is scheduled to open July 2014 and the new store will be fully stocked with your favourite shoes. Dont forget Vote for John Fluevog!
