The Fit Expert
In 1985 John opened his first US store, steps away from the Seattle Pike Place Market. Among the antique dealers, comic book sellers, fishmongers, local farmers, and small family-owned head shops operating in the covered arcades, John felt right at home in his new store. With just enough money to refit the space, John had to sell his car (a 1973 periwinkle blue E-type Jaguar) to stock his new location with fabulous Fluevogs. And with that, 1161 1st Avenue (and its stockroom across the street!) became the first John Fluevog store in the US and later paved the way for many more. Continuing the Fluevog heritage by using classic
partial blake construction with soles and uppers made from high-grain Italian leathers, the 1611 First Ave is a spats inspired boot for the classiest vintage look.
