Chad from our Vancouver (Gastown) store says:

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

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.

Love floral print

S - Winnipeg
Love these shoes. Received a lot of complements in the floral and they go with anything. Even men in the boardroom commented ! I don't have a fluevog in Winnipeg and unfortunately these fit bigger than normal size. Now they are stretched too far to wear. Boo

I am a longtime Fluevog devotee and have never had any issues with the quality of the shoes (and in fact still comfortably wear some shoes I bought 8+ years ago), but after trying the floral shoes on in store and ordering online the leather cracked and tore after wearing them just two times although the fit felt fine. The floral pattern is lovely - it's a shame.

Avoid the Black Canvas

Liza Johnson
Love these shoes, super comfortable like most Fluevogs. Unfortunately I have worn the black canvas pair a minimal # of times and generally in good weather (maybe a rainy day or two) and the canvas is wearing off in multiple areas revealing large white patches. Would not buy this fabrication again in any Fluevog shoe.
