May 15 - John Fluevog Shoes

For 4orty-three years, our fearless leader John Fluevog has been crusading against conformity, protecting against Satan, and trying his best to spread love and fellowship throughout his Flummunity. International Fluevog Day is best described as some of the best parts of other, slightly less famous days. The love of Valentine's, mixed with the excitement of New Year's and the fellowship of St. Patrick's Day, pretty much makes Fluevog Day the best day of the year.

This International Fluevog Day promises to be bigger than anyone could have ever imagined, as neighboring vendors in all 14 major Fluevog cities, along with other online vendors across the World, are offering discounts and deals to help celebrate the greatest shoe shopping day of the year. (Check out the FRIENDS OF FLUEVOG DAY page to view participating vendors and discounts.)


Following Colorado's bold step this past election year in making International Fluevog Day a state holiday, and other municipalities such as the Multinomah County in Oregon and Orange County in California jumping on board making every 15th of May a bank holiday, other cities across North America have since taken up the Fluevog Day cause. Fashionable cities across the world such as Joshua Tree CA, Hickering ON, and Cambridge MA declared last year that International Fluevog Day should be paid holiday for all city employees. Other cities planning extravagant Fluevog Teal ticker-tape parades include Vernon, Sebastapol, Yolo, and Armstrong.

Every year John gives away thousands of pairs of teal laces, stickers, and buttons through his retail stores worldwide, as annual traditions include wearing teal laces on the day of days. "I remember when we started International Fluevog Day way back when I was a kid in Ancient Greece, we dyed our togas teal, and wow, was Socrates confused!" says John Fluevog. "You should have seen what the people wore to the Discoteques back then... teal togas and Fluevog sandals, it was hip man, real radical stuff happenin."

Meanwhile, yodelers and characturists are on standby across North America, while knive swallowers are sharpening their wits. Last week, the finalists were chosen for the award winning television program FlueFactor, where contestants are timed doing rediculous stunts, like eating ant farms while reciting famous Fluevogian quotes, proving once again that Fluevog Day has become a cross-cultural phenomenon.

10 Years Of Shoes


Excitement has started to build as the day of announcement draws closer. John decided to continue last year's International Fluevog Day tradition with an annual epic contest: WIN A NEW PAIR OF FLUEVOGS EVERY YEAR FOR 10 YEARS!! That means the lucky winner will never have to worry about being well shod until 2022! Can you even believe it?

PS. We've talked to several pretty well-educated robots who have ensured us that most humans will not develop wheel-feet for at least 10 years.

Sign The Petition


This year, John thought it would be a nice gesture to give his employees a half hour off early on May 15th to join the celebrations. After a joyous 'hooray,' John realized this gesture was infectuous and decided to create a petition for everyone in the World to take off early on International Fluevog Day! We encourage you to sign The Fluevogian Petition to get off work 30 minutes early on Fluevog Day, and be part of the largest Fluevogian movement since sliced toast!

Wherever you are this Fluevog Day, remember to cherish your friends, park your car, serve and be served, value your soul, leave small prints, and be Fluevogian by wearing your teal laces (oh, and show off your Fluevogs). This year, customers will enjoy FREE SHIPPING on domestic web orders on May 15th. If you're near one of our 17 stores on the 15th, come by for the festivities, and receive 15% OFF REGULAR PRICE. Join us at 5:15pm on 5/15 for refreshments, balloons, outfits, louder music, outrageous costumes, and the annual Fluevog Day Class Photo with like-minded Fluevogers.
