The Bordoni is true to size and very comfortable; with lots of room in the toes!


This member of The Operetta Family celebrated the famous 18th century opera singer, Faustina Bordoni, in an ankle boot with a 2.5" heel, a minstrel rubber sole, oversized eyelets and bold interlace details. They were made with shiny Portuguese leather topped with soft nubuck at the quarter panels and tongue. Try these on and you'll discover there's an opera singer in all of us. (Fluevog staff have earplugs especially for this occasion). Your love makes me sing.

I bought these in black and white, and they're stunning! Gorgeous with pencil skirts and anything skintight and black. I'm a 12 in my bellevue libby smiths and prepare leaders, the 12's in these technically work but I really would've been better off with a 12.5 if they made it. My big toe brushes the front sometimes, particularly if I don't lace them as tightly as humanly possible. The lacing was the part that made fitting this shoe tricky. The eyelets are spaced very far apart, which makes it hard to keep any tensile strength if you do a traditional criss-cross lacing. I have a narrow foot, so when the lacing gaps it lets my feet slide forward, and I'd probably bash my toes into the front of the shoe even if it were 2 sizes too big. I experimented in-store, and found that if I did an extra horizontal loop with the laces in addition to a traditional criss-cross lacing, the laces kept my feet in place much better. There's probably other good lacing fixes. Anyways, gorgeous shoe, and the most comfortable heels I own!

Sometimes it is black and white.

I was fortunate enough to get these on sale. I'm usually a size 9, no particular feet issues. The 9 1/2 fit perfectly; anything smaller would be too small. I don't know why the scale says "fits large"--I completely disagree. But all feet are different. Shoes came with one black and one white lace (?). I hated both of them; sneaker laces on these shoes just don't work. Easily fixed with some white boot laces (45 inch), which not only looks sharper, but coordinates with the piping. BOOYAH! Love 'em! Thanks as always to all the stores for continuing to fill my online orders, and to Seattle for their always-awesome customer service!

I didn't mean to do it...

I fell in love with these. I had gone into the Union Square SF store to pick up another pair of shoes I had ordered while on a trip to Boston. It was supposed to be a quick in-and-out. But...the sale was on. And I've had my eye on these. I was worried they'd be to narrow for my wide toes, but they are quite comfy for me, a nice roomy toe box. A bit loose on my skinny heel and ankle but not a deal-breaker by any means. Tiny bit of pressure on the pinky toes that I'm sure will go away with time given how supple the leather is. Wore them out of the box all day while taking a friend sightseeing around SF with nary a pang of pain and no doubt hat I had made the right decision--got bucketfuls of compliments. Can't wait to wear them with various tights, leggings and dresses! Love you Fluevog for making incredible works of art that are also comfortable on the feet.
