The lace-up, open-toed Angelou bootie is John's tribute to author, poet, and Civil Rights activist Maya Angelou, who, in true Fluevogian spirit, walked unwaveringly forward in the woman's liberation movement. The Angelou bootie uses beautiful soft matte leathers with crosshatched piping and whipstitching, giving it a pretty, but confident look. Even after summer's warmth has faded, the open-toed Angelou begs to be worn with tights and socks in the cooler autumn months. Built upon a 1" platform with a rubber truth sole, stacked leather wedge, a 4 " leather wrapped circular heel and tunite cap, The Angelou encourages you to challenge society's expectations, and liberate your heart unflinchingly. Write down your dreams.
