John Fluevog Calgary

June 2011 - John Fluevog Shoes

After thirty long years of hunting, John Fluevog Shoes has finally found the perfect retail space and location to open John Fluevog Calgary! Aiming to have the doors open by the Stampede season (early July 2011), JF Calgary will occupy a space on 8th Ave within the Stephen Avenue Outdoor Mall. Alberta has long been a target province for John Fluevog Shoes as it has always held a special place in John's heart, especially after he closed the Fox & Fluevog Edmonton store in 1981.

John's new Calgary retail space is in a restored historic factory building, built of brick and Paskapoo sandstone that dates back to the start of the century. Keeping the interior's antique tiled floor and turn of the century advertisements painted on the exposed brick walls, the space will be completely Fluevogified and many of the fixtures are being handmade as we speak. There is also a rumour that John has plans for an amazing Fluevogian surprise that will eventually be installed on the mezzanine level. The Stephen Avenue mall is closed to traffic during the day, making it the perfect downtown area to stroll whether you're in the mood to have a bite, shop for unique shoes, or just to hang out in the many galleries, theatres and nightclubs. Won't be long now - and we can't wait to finally open!!
