Description

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.

I love my blue Desmonds but so far they don't love me back. I've worn them twice to work now and get tons of compliments, but man, do they dig into the tops of my feet. I got them in my usual Fluevog size 9.5 and the fit is great. I wouldn't size up or they'd be falling off. I'm hoping that with more wear, they'll adjust.

Love love love

Wow is all I can say about these shoes. These are my very first fluevogs and they are my most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I bought the floral and they are so pretty. I get many compliments at work from my customers when I wear these. Even my male boss commented on them. I wear these at least once a week during an eight hour shift and I don't want to take them off at the end of the day. Many thanks to the New Orleans store for making this Canadian feel special. These shoes are a work of art.

2017 Love Pumps in Canvas Black

IslaAnne - Victoria
I walked into the new Victoria store and I tried on these pumps not expecting to make a purchase. But as soon as I started to walk around in these pumps in the store and they were so comfortable that I fell in love with them. I love the canvas Black because they won't scratch/ scuff as much as the smooth. I usually wear size 6.5 in heels and that is what size I bought. The size 7 left a little gap at the back of heels.
