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??

Yes, yes, yes! They look absolutely stunning, Ally! xxxReplyDelete
OMGoodness!!!! Those are a stunning pair of shoes ... I would buy them in a heartbeat (for myself!!!).ReplyDelete
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!
Hmmm...looks like my comment just disappeared?ReplyDelete
Anyhow I hope you went for it! They are so fun and unique. All of Fluevogs shoes are like walking in art.
Do you even have to ask?? You know my answer - buy them! Those are a spectacular pair, and I would also wear them myself. L agrees!ReplyDelete
go for it. I have 2 pairs of Fleuvog boots & I love them (& I wore a pair of John Fox-his erstwhile business partner- ivory satin mules to my wedding 25 years ago.ReplyDelete
Lovely shoes, I like the retro vibe! I think you should get a pair =) HugsReplyDelete

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.ReplyDelete
Oh Sheila is quite an influence :) I bought my pair of Fluevogs after seeing the ones she wore and loved so much. I say YES ! get those beauties.ReplyDelete
Sheila is a role-model for many of us!Delete
THOSE BOOTS ARE AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING! I LOVE them. Do it, do it, do it!ReplyDelete
No, Kezzie, tell me how you really feel. :-)Delete
Love the retro feel. Is that dragon skin?ReplyDelete
I hope you succumbed and enjoy wearing them.
They will be a nice surprise when you sit down...great for when you're on TV ;-) xo Jazzy Jack
Normal leather. I agree they're retro in the sense they remind me of 18th Century aristocrats. :-)Delete
