These can fit up to a half size large but it's a beautiful shoe and a great heel height.

On November 8th, 1946 beauty school & salon owner Viola Desmond was arrested for sitting in the white-patron only seating in the segregated Roseland Theatre in Nova Scotia. Viola was forcibly removed from the theatre, jailed overnight, and convicted of tax evasion for not paying the one cent difference for the black seating in the balcony. Viola contested the court decisions and after the Nova Scotian court upheld the decision against her, Viola closed her beauty shop and eventually moved out of Canada. Viola's courageous protest was the first significant step in equal rights for all, and helped spark The Canadian Civil Rights Movement.

We celebrate and honour Viola by naming this striking and confident pump after her - a pump that will walk with you throughout the day and into the night. With options of shiny metallics, glossy patents, supple floral patterns, painted bovine hair leathers, or supersaturated waxy canvas uppers built on foot molding leather soles, The Desmond Pump uses modern materials on a classic style. John gave the super-pointed Big Presence last a little lift with a diamond shaped 2.75" canvas wrapped heel with swooping curves, giving this simple pump an unusually distinctive profile. If you put the Desmond pumps sole-to-sole, and heel-to-heel, John leaves you with a lasting impression straight from his heart. Present yourself well.

Outstanding comfort and style

I have four (4!!!) pairs of these - THEY ARE SO COMFORTABLE! And, of course, always eye-catching. First pair was orange, then yellow, then blue canvas and snake print. I usually wear 8.5-9, so orange and blue I have in size 9; yellow and snake print are 8.5. The yellow is tight and I would have ordered 9, but they were gone and I didn't want to miss out on that color. Snake print is leather, so I got 8.5 to hope it stretches out a tad; the 9 was too big when trying on. I appreciate the stability of the big heel and how comfortable they are to stand and walk in all day. Thank you for making these lovelies and in so many colors! John Fluevog, you are a gift to us all!

OMG Love them. So many comments on them.

I fit most size 8.5 Fluevogs. These Desmonds fit Big I find. I would suggest going a .5 size down. But other than that, they are a very SOLID shoe, easy to walk in and SUPER CUTE!!

5 pairs and a spare!

Best style EVER - make my legs look a mile long - and - they are so comfy! I have the black leather, the black fabric (for summer), purple, orange, and blue. And I'm thinking of a 2nd pair of black leather to keep as a spare. Because I practically skip down the path when I wear these! LOVE!
