In honor of West Coast living, John brings you a simple, yet stylish family with mod-shaped pointed toes, retro white rubber soles, red eyelets, in luscious suedes and sexy fiorentina leathers. The flights are named after layover-stops on an infamous voyage that took John 22
hours and 9 airports to get back home (all while still looking fabulous). "When you fly Fluevog, you always fly first class." ($169US, $205CDN)
The Future Angels are the hottest, lightest and fastest family to protect you from the dark forces of your destiny. This is a full-on flexible and lightweight custom sport sole for quick movement and lightning fast wit. A 50% rubber and 50% all-natural latex sole "Directs your Future" while protecting you from Satan. ($125US, $139CDN)
MINI Cutie Pie & Dollface
When the Mini heel was first introduced in 2001, John decided all styles with this heel would be named by using “lover's nicknames.” Over the years, the style names have been getting extremely personal! The Minis feature contrast piping, soft analine leathers, a rubber F-Sole, and the iconic 3" hourglass heel for the ultimate traction, durability and comfort. Go on, fall in love, we dare you! (Cutie Pie boot $429US, $539CDN, Dollface $255US, $319CDN)
OPERETTA Mirella & Zinka
With soft Baccarat Patent leathers, comfy rubber soles, and a 2.5" leather wrapped heel, the Operetta Family could possibly be the most functional and comfortable Fluevogs ever. Named after extremely dramatic Opera singers, the Operetta family will be your everyday, dress-up,
dress-down, favourite pair of shoes – perfect for skipping and singing. "Your love makes me sing." (Mirella mid-calf $399US, $499CDN, Zinka kneehigh $409US, $519CDN)
RADIO NPR & CBC
As a young and gawky teenager, Johnny Fluevog would spend hours working on his broken-down car while the chatter of his constant companion kept him company - a portable AM radio. Many years later, John broadcasts style and comfort with the Radio family. Featuring a teal/royal blue splash of color on the heel, an upturned toe, a wider footbed, and a tunite heel & sole, the Radio Family is the soundtrack to your life. "Tune in, Turn on, and Vog out!" (NPR boot $195US, $245CDN, CBC shoe $175US, $215CDN)
With a sturdy 2” heel and a soft rubber sole, while using reliable shiraz leathers on an eloquent oblique toe shape, the Wearever family will be your trusty companion on many adventures. "Wearever You Go Give Thanks." ($369US, $469CDN)
