John Fluevog Shoes

weather: mostly sunny
outside: 19°C
mood: amazed
I was bumbling around the John Fluevog Shoes site. Co-worker of mine swears by her Fluevog boots.

I couldn't stop looking at this pair: the Vision. I may not want to own them*, but damn, I'd really like to try them =D

* — No, that's not true. I would want to own a pair of those. But only when I win the lottery jackpot. Twice. And I'm getting sick of seeing so much money. Or something like that.

Back in this parallel Universe, my taste in summer shoes run more to the Chloe (my favorite out of them all), the Rosetta and the Rita (in green)... maybe the RIO. But all of them have a birch base which means you couldn't walk much before your feet started hurting. And wearing them often would do something to your back, for sure. I'd also never pay those kinds of prices for shoes.

As it is, I got a pair of slightly heeled mules for (CDN)$40.00 which is still the most I've paid for a single pair shoes in four years. Yay for Payless Shoe Source at the mall. My mules are so popular, I can't find a picture anywhere on the internet. This was the closest thing to it that I could find, but mine are not Skechers, they're no names (well, there is a brand on them, but I think it's as good as a no name). They're very soft black leather and I don't have a strap across the metatarsals. They're very squishy, comfortable and quick to slip on and off. The heel isn't as high as I'd like it to be, but they're okay.

I also found the Fluevog Shoe Sketch Postcards incredible. I love those drawings! The Peepshow Pump and the Peeptower Strap are my favorites =)

Whoa. Those are some *nice* looking shoes! I agree with you able walkability though, and I'd never pay those prices for shoes. (Heck, I have a hard time paying anything over $12 for shoes, so I have fits when I buy Reeboks for $30, or nice sandals for $24.) But still - they is puuuurty.

Re: Wow
I think I was attracted to the Vision because it's kinda Trekkish to me =) Can't you see Lwaxanna Troi or some female alien on Risa wearing them? =D

I know the feeling =P I'm a bit soothed knowing that I won't be buying shoes again for another year or two. =P

Woo, the Vision are some shoes! They remind me of scissors!

I love wearing mules all year round. Slipping feet into open toes or mules are the way to go. Makes life easier (and less back pains too). ^_^

Yeah, or a folding deck chair =) A folding pair of shoes, that would be great! =D

Long live mules =)

What wild shoes!!! I can never wear shoes that have any height to them at all because my ankles are weak but wow!

Hee, it's my Husband's fault. He's way taller than I am, so I've been wearing progressively higher heels since highschool =)

I went shoe shopping with his Mom when we were in Taiwan. She says "why do you want such high heels?" in a mock disdain. I play-berated her for having such a tall son. =D

most of those shoes are (IMHO) not worth $200+ USD

Hehe, yeah, at least I'm looking at pictures and I'm not at the store where I'm constantly going "AAAUGH!! Put it down before you break it and have to pay for it!!!" =D

I did get a chuckle out of the Duran Duran reference

*WHOOSH* Right over my head =}
