[A version of this story first appeared in Issue 10 of The Fluevog Post]
When you find yourself intrigued and enchanted by the sight of a delicately detailed, angel wedge heel found on our shelves this season, we’ll consider our Mission accomplished. More specifically, we’ll know that this new shoe Family has completed its arduous journey from ambitious concept to successful creation, largely thanks to John’s faith in people, art and friendship.
Custom designed and molded, with the help of meticulous rounds of 3D modelling, these pieces of art are combined soles and heels inspired by the traditional milagro charms of Mexico John recently discovered on a trip. Evocative of iconic Fluevog symbols of hope, love and freedom of spirit, the Mission Accomplished Family is more than just a culmination of some of John’s most cherished qualities.
Named after and in memory of individuals whose spirits and lives have touched John in deeply profound ways, the Family is a tribute to the strength that emerges from adversity as well as the courage it can take to ultimately come full circle.
