Almost 25 years ago John launched the first Angel-soled Fluevogs into the world! Since then Angels have been part of various social and fashion movements, and are often referred to as the most comfortable soles on the planet. The 7th Heaven Angel Soles add rubber to the mix, but you still get that amazing comfort that you're used to and they're still resoleable. To celebrate the new 7th Heaven Angel Soles, John has produced a small run of the classic 6 hole Derby Swirl complete with leather lining and padded foot socks, in amazing colourways. Made in Europe, these 7th Heaven Derby Swirls still "resist alkali, water, acid, fatigue and Satan" and will turn every head along your journey. As it says on the iconic pull tab... DDFT!

The Special Edition Fluevog Language styles are a limited edition colourway loaded with decorative symbols that are, in fact, a secret language created by John to speak to his Fluevogers. Become fluent in the language of Fluevog, and let John speak to you through your shoes!

I wanted to love them, but have been disappointed

Heath - Austin, TX
I have a pair of Doc Martens that I've had for 25+ years and wore as my main pair of shoes for many of those years. All they've ever needed was new insoles until this year when the sole needs to be re-glued. Around 8 years ago, I was looking for a new pair to add to my collection. All my friends "in the know" said that Docs weren't really that great any more as they'd been bought out and now were made overseas or something. They said Fluevogs were the new Docs. High quality, awesome shoes. While in Seattle for a trip, I bought a pair of red Derby Swirls at the Fluevog store.

8 years later, I have to say we've just never bonded. Firstly, I still find them not very comfortable, especially for long periods. Secondly, after a few years, I'd worn a hole through the interior leather of both heels and had to have that repaired at a local shop. I've also worn holes through the interior leather at both pinky toes. And I had to have one of the soles re-glued where it started to separate at the side. During all this time, I also took them in several times to be cleaned and conditioned and all that to really take care of them.

I love the company, the philosophy, the designs, etc., but as much as I want to love these boots, I do not (other than they do look great). I really want to try some more Fluevogs, but as they are not cheap (and generally, I have found that when it comes to shoes, you get what you pay for), I am hesitant to gamble again. I kept hoping these would "break in" but after 8 years and multiple repairs, I don't think that's going to happen.

Women who like room in the toes should try these!

I have the Mary Jane 7th heaven in size 10 women's and got the acid black in these in a size 8 men's, and prefer this fit. I love the look of these, nice mix of black, white, olive and plum, so they match more than you might expect! I take a 10W/8M in Frontier and a 10W in mini and a 10.5W in Hopes and a 10.5 in F shoe Cece just to name a few of my others.

I'm Walking on Sunshine

Ty Papke - United States
I received my Derby Swirls in the mail last night and have been wearing them today. These are my first Fluevogs, and I am so impressed with these boots that I am having trouble expressing my exuberance! I own a LOT of boots. Seriously, it's a bit ridiculous. But, in the words of the late John Balance, "excess makes the heart grow fonder." They are mostly Docs, with some other various brands thrown in here or there. Somehow, I've gone all this time having never heard of John Fluevog. I have mixed feelings about stumbling upon this amazing brand. On one hand, I am excited to own a pair of these boots. On the other hand, they are so great that it makes me want to replace all of my other boots with Fluevogs! That would be a poor financial decision for me. There are so many great designs on this website that I want to own them all! Yet I digress... back to the boots I am reviewing... As soon as I took them out of the box, I could tell they are high-quality. The construction seems very solid, with a keen attention to detail. What's even more amazing than their design, however, is their comfort. I read that they are supposed to be very comfortable, but many boots claim this, so I took it with a grain of salt. Usually boots like this take weeks to break in, and I have to wear them in small doses the first few times to avoid blisters. I kid you not, these are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn, hands down. And they're not even broken in yet! I feel like I'm walking on sunshine! This poses a problem, because now all of my other boots are going to feel uncomfortable. These boots poses many qualities that are lacking in similar designs by different brands; such as a padded tongue, padded footbed, leather-lining, lace-loop on the tongue, and Satan-resistance. In addition to the quality boots, I also enjoyed the packaging, with all of its witty fine print. A very nice touch. Mr. Fluevog, I want to kiss you.
