FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
This fall, John Fluevog and Make-A-Wish Canada have teamed up to create a shoe that will help make a child’s wish come true with 50% of the retail sales of this collaboration being donated to Make-A-Wish Canada!
Make-A-Wish’s mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Although John’s shoes are unquestionably magical, he realized that a pump (no matter how beautiful it may be) isn’t capable of granting all wishes. Toiling in his design office/magic lab for days, aiming to honour this amazing, generous foundation in the way that he knows best, he emerged victoriously with a shoe/star hybrid that not only helps to grant wishes, but conveniently fits perfectly on the feet of Fluevogers.
John proudly presents the Fluevogian answer to a shooting star, the extra glittery Miracles Medugorje, which flew out of the night sky and right into his ever-inspired, ever-growing mind. The Make-A-Wish Canada Medugorje glows as a silvery glittered pump with a leather sole, Spanish textile, leather piping and lining, and the sole message, Make A Dream Come True.
With the purchase of these shoes, Fluevogers will know they have helped grant the wish of a child. Plus, their personalized stars are guaranteed to take people’s attention away from the constellations and straight to their fabulous Fluevogs, leaving people starry-eyed in their wake.
