Description

In 1864, Missouri teenager Maybelle (age 16) and her family (descendants of the notorious Hatfields) fled their hometown for Texas, avoiding the approaching Union soldiers. While in Texas, Belle became friends with a renegade group of fellow Confederate Missourians, including Jesse James and his gang. Belle's first husband was a stagecoach robber, bringing Belle along for the adventure, resulting in his gruesome death. Running from the law, Belle married into the Starr clan, a Cherokee Indian family notorious for whiskey, cattle, and horse thievery, and learned their rustling ways until she was found guilty of horse theft and served nine months at the Detroit House of Corrections. Legend has it, the outlaw queen inspired fashion of the day with her strong sense of style - riding sidesaddle while dressed in a black velvet riding cape and a plumed hat, carrying two pistols with cartridge belts across her hips. Two days before her 41st birthday, she was ambushed riding home from a neighbour's house and shot several times in an act of vengeance. No one was ever found guilty of her murder, and supposedly her ghost still rides at dusk in the Oklahoma plains.

Using soft, pebbled, vegetable-tanned leathers with diamond patterned laser cutouts, matching ribbons with weighted silver tips, on a 2.5" Fellowship-hi heel and tunite Bellevue sole, this open-toed slingback is sure to make you "wanted" in all 48 states and 13 provinces & territories. Keep pushing west and beyond your imagination.

Found in: Casual, Sandals, Heels, Womens

The Hit of the Conference

Elaine - Madison
I bought these in aqua at the Seattle store, on a grim grey day last year when I needed something bright and happy in my life. They were perfect - they fit beautifully, never a blister and, despite the height (for my habits), I'm never teetering. I just came home from a conference in New Mexico, where they were (for me) the best thing about it - compliments on them in every session, and knowing fellow 'Voggers winked at me as if to say "ah, Belle. She's a feisty one." And, a tip for the timid regarding the bow: yes, if you tie a 'regular' bow it will work itself out. But if you follow the rules at Ian's Shoelace site for "Ian's Secure Shoelace Knot", you'll tie a bow that is both symmetrical and secure. Am I a nerd? You betcha!

My first pair of Fluevogs. I bought these in Aqua, to wear with a pinup-style dress for my bridal shower last August. They were comfortable from the second I put them on, and I get compliments from so many people every time I wear them. They are beautiful shoes. I have only had one problem with them - the metal on the ends of the ribbon is a little heavy, and if I'm doing a lot of walking, they loosen the bow and make it come undone, even if double-knotted. Other than that, I love love love these shoes and have even bought clothes specifically because they would allow me to wear these shoes more often.

I bought these in turquoise at the SF store and promptly wore them out to Pride. They did give me pressure blisters on the balls of my feet, but clear gel inserts took care of that and they are enormously comfortable. They fit true to size (6) and are wide enough for my rather duck-like feet, which is always a joy.

They never fail to garner compliments. Every time I wear them, someone always stops me to say how cute my shoes are. Fluevog love forever!
