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. Iconic Angel Soles that still "resist alkali, water, acid, fatigue and Satan," The Derby Swirls will turn every head along your journey. As it says on the iconic pull tab... DDFT!

The burgundy, black and brown Derby Swirls are updated ever so slightly with a custom welt, an OrthoLite foam insole and an embossed and painted angel at the heel.

The JF Tapestry Derby Swirls tell a bigger story than you think!

The green floral jacquard and black/floral Derby Swirls feature re-engineered recycled rubber soles with a rubber midsole, bonded leather welt, air pockets for extra lightness and flex grooves for comfort.

The black vegan Derby Swirls are made from high quality vegan 'leather' aka. microfibre/polyurethane and feature a 100% recycled rubber (TPR) sole. 


The denim, purple and yellow suede Derby Swirls were first designed in collaboration with John's good friend and designer Anna Sui and debuted alongside her Spring/Summer 2020 Victorianna collection at New York Fashion Week! They feature soft suedes, neon laces, neon rubber soles with a rubber welt as well as an Ortholite hybrid molded insole made from 20% recycled materials.  

Found in: Casual, Boots, Womens, Mens, Flats

Butter soft suede and luscious new colors!

When I saw the new Derby Swirls walk the Ana Sui fashion show, my jaw dropped. All I could do was hope John would add them to our new season. And Voila! Here they are!!

I actually sized down a full size on these. The toe box is very generous and the suede is very soft! I would love to have these in every color! The purple are mine! 💜 They are incredibly comfortable!

I recently purchased 3 pairs of the Derby swirl: burgundy, JF tapestry, and black floral. The first pair were bought in-person at the distillery in Toronto-- the burgundy. LOVE these boots. The fit of these ones is a bit more narrow than the other two, which is great for my foot. So far the laces are holding up, but I can see what others mean about them falling apart. I can walk for hours in these, and I have foot issues, so I need to be very careful.

The second pair, the JF tapestry, were purchased online. Same-sized 5 men's. I usually wear a 6.5 in women's boots, but the burgundy pair fit well at a 5/7, so I went with the same size. These ones are definitely more roomy than the burgundy pair, and a half size shorter would have been better. The toe is more round, and the sole is different. They aren't quite as comfortable as the burgundy pair, but what I actually do like about these is that the sole feels more spongy when walking, which is quite great. with a thick pair of socks, I can wear these for a long time also.

The third pair I ordered online are the black floral. I was so excited to order these. Love the red laces, and they are just super fun. Again, same size 5 but another totally different fit. I know this size variation is typical now, but when ordering online it is super frustrating to not have more consistency when ordering the same model! These ones are a bit short on my larger foot, and they aren't as comfortable sole-wise as the other two pairs. Unfortunately, I wore them out already and only noticed the comfort level at that time so cannot exchange or return. Very disappointing, as I love to wear Fluevogs and have been wearing them since the 80s (gasp!).

Overall, I would recommend the Derby Swirls. They look fantastic and make a statement. It is much better to purchase Fluevogs in-person, which is only an option for me when I travel. As much as I love that I am not going to see someone else with my boots on in a city of 700,000, I would love the ease and security of buying them in-person!

J'adore !

J'adore mes nouveaux Derby Swirl (jacquard floral /vert) !
Lorsque j'ai posé mes yeux sur eux pour la toute première fois sur le site web, j'étais enchantée par leur beauté, mais en boutique, j'ai trouvé cette version des Derby Swirl encore plus belle ; les motifs dorés parsemant la zone fleurie ajoutent un éclat de lumière intéressant. De plus, ils sont très confortables. Merci, John !
