John Fluevog to release 50th Anniversary Coffee Table Book
Get your blankets, hot beverages and reading glasses ready. To celebrate his 50th Anniversary in shoe business, John has been hard at work on an autobiographical coffee table book that will peel back the layers on his history as an unconventional shoe designer and businessman. A visual treat that covers everything from John’s rollercoaster of a journey in fashion to the inside stories behind some of his most iconic shoes, Fluevog: 50 Years of Unique Soles for Unique Souls will officially hit bookstores this November.
“It’s been 50 years and that’s a feat,” says John. “Though doing the book was never a big goal of mine, I began to realize that staying 50 years in the boutique shoe business with all the different energy in all the different eras was something to celebrate. I’m glad we wrote it all down before it surely starts slipping my mind.”
John Fluevog Shoes will celebrate 50 Years in shoe business in the year 2020. Fluevog: 50 Years of Unique Soles for Unique Souls will be available at Fluevog stores worldwide in November 2019.
