February 2014 - John Fluevog Shoes

John Fluevog is making the journey south, and his first stop is right in the heart of The Big Easy. After searching since the Louisiana Purchase, John has finally found his new home in New Orleans – in the middle of the vibrant French Quarter! The store is set to open in 2014 in the historic Pontalba Building, which was built in 1850 (when John was just a teenager) and declared a National Historic Landmark in 1974.

When rumors grew of a space opening in the building, John staked his claim immediately. Baroness Pontalba, the building’s namesake, was a fiery entrepreneur who survived being shot by the dueling pistol of a scheming family member and lived to buy a hefty portion of New Orleans. To John, an avid anti-dueling activist, she has always been an inspiration.

History may have brought John to The Crescent City, but the famously delicious food, friendly people, and diverse culture of the bustling city are what made Fluevog want to stay (the man and the shoes). The store is set to open very soon and John is anxiously awaiting his perfect justification for all-night Mardi Gras celebrations, jazz sessions, and gluttonous portions of gumbo. You don’t have long to wait, Louisiana; soon fresh Fluevogs will be ready to wander through the celebrations, bars, and local shops on some of the oldest and liveliest streets New Orleans has to offer. We can’t wait to see you there!
