SEPT. 28, 2010 - John Fluevog Shoes

During a design meeting for Fall 10, John drew a 3 inch heeled boot inspired by famous rock'n'roll ladies. Someone at the Grand Table said "we should name a boot after our beloved Canadian rockstar Melissa Auf der Maur." An unanimous cheer erupted at Fluevog HQ and thus the Auf der Maur boot was born. 

Fast forward to Fall 2010, when the boot was released Melissa Auf der Maur caught wind of the honored boot during her world tour and immediately contacted John to declare her thankfulness, during which Melissa offered to perform at John's glorious all-glass flagship store in Vancouver.

Promoting her new project Out Of Our Minds at the Pacifique Cinema, Melissa will perform at the John Fluevog Design Studio in Gastown at 3pm on Tuesday September 28th.

Please contact us if you would like to attend a special Press Q & A with Melissa at the Fluevog Design Studios.


The Auf Der Maur is a Canadian born boot with ciclone pull-up leathers, a side zipper, three straps and buckles, that guarantees you a good time out of your mind.
