Fluevog Shoes


I have a question for you.

My Canadian friends introduced me to their native shoe-designer John Fluevog who's been making interesting shoes for men and women since the Seventies. His designs are so original and odd as to often look alien. Yet they have a strong appeal to those of us who value originality. Some of his designs don't even look like shoes at all and he uses really unusual materials (like dragon-skin). The best way to view his creations are as art on your feet.

Fluevog has stores in most big cities -- including NYC where I'm going tonight to dine and shop. I'm considering buying a pair of these beauties. Thoughts??

  2. OMGoodness!!!! Those are a stunning pair of shoes ... I would buy them in a heartbeat (for myself!!!).

    I went and looked at his designs and my goodness ... I could choose a hundred pairs there for myself ... And I am not a shoe person (or so I say! LOL!!!)

    Let us know if you got yourself a pair of these beauties!

  3. Hmmm...looks like my comment just disappeared?

    Anyhow I hope you went for it! They are so fun and unique. All of Fluevogs shoes are like walking in art.

  7. I ordered a pair to try a few years ago that I loved but I had no idea how to style them. I didn’t like them with just jeans or dresses. I think if you love them, get them but definitely think about use value if you’re considering your budget.

    1. Normal leather. I agree they're retro in the sense they remind me of 18th Century aristocrats. :-)
