Description

Handmade with supple leathers on a leather sole, with a 3.75" slender heel, this gorgeous ankle boot can be worn cuff up, or cuff down. In keeping a strong alliance with our beloved Peruvian factory, we dedicate this simple, zip-up cuffed boot in memorial to the town of Yungay, and to the children's generations that keep the spirit of the Miracle in the Mountains alive.

On May 30, 1971 at 3:23 in the afternoon, the children of the small Peruvian town of Yungay were in attendance at a traveling circus being performed in the local stadium when the Huascarán mountain that overlooked the town split in two. The earthquake, which registered an 8.0 on the Richter scale and lasted only a minute, caused the north side of the towering mountain to collapse, sending an avalanche of ice, mud, and boulders 60 meters high, and a kilometer wide crashing into Yungay and covering the entire town. In what became Peru's single worst natural disaster killing all of Yungay's 25,000 inhabitants, the only survivors were the 300 children who were kept from harm by the stadiums strong, high walls.

I have a very HIGH instep, and these boots work GREAT because they zip up the front. Because my instep is high, the first couple times I wore them, I had to be patient with the zipper (got my stocking caught in it) LOL... but these have stretched a bit and are very comfortable to wear. As always... LUVIN my Fluevogs! Thank you so much :-)

Fab Tranny wear!!

DeeDee - Portland, OR
I got these on sale (WHAT A STEAL @ $149!!!), and had occasion to wear them to the screening of a tranny slasher flick!! Of course EVERYONE loved them. My feet had a Fluevog hangover the next day, though a Fluevog hangover is like one of a fine wine...it is not nearly as bad as one obtained from swill...the leather IS butter soft, and as I exited the car, my foot got caught between the curb and the door. Immediately blemished my beauties, and I was crushed. Treat these with gentle, loving care!! Caution: only for trannies with extra tiny or narrow feet. I wear a size 11, and do not have very wide feet. These only work with very thin socks or hose. I am a normal size 11.

May be the sexiest shoe in my closet

Michele - White Rock, BC
I bought these at the same time as I purchased the grey Attention-Jolie boot and these shoes have been fighting for foot time ever since. These shoes are perhaps the most comfortable, sexy and elegant boot I own and I have already received several compliments. Go to the Gastown location in Vancouver, and ask for Wes--- hands down, the BEST salesman! Already looking to purchase pair #13.
