But I need to tell you about a pair of John Fluevog shoes I bought in New York in November.
Now, out of our five or six readers, I expect that about 1.4 of you are not aware that I am Canadian. Did you know that John Fluevog is also Canadian? No? Well, then you are stupid. Just kidding. But seriously – do you live under a rock?
Actually, the reason I’m sharing this with you is, as I mentioned, I bought these fair shoes in NYC. Not T-dot, not Van, but south of the border. Which seems odd, doesn’t it? Well, what with taxes, import duties and the phases of the moon, buying even Canadian goods is cheaper in the good old U-S-of-A. So that’s what I did. Sorry, Canadian GDP – you can’t argue with a 30% price difference.
Anyway. I’m also highly aware that if I post too much about shoes, we may attract, how shall I put it? The wrong sorts of people. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but, um, it makes me slightly uncomfortable. So I’m going to imagine now that you are reading this because you appreciate the incredible Fluevog quality, the boho-meets-Les Liasons Dangereux styling, leather-wrapped heel, stamped and antiqued cordova leather and ribbon tie-up (also a big trend that I’m all over).
These babies are also a full 4″ which has taken a little getting used to. I had originally hoped to get them in red…
(everyone should have a pair of red shoes, period.) but I love, love LOVE the brown I had to settle for. They’ve become everyday for me, though if I don’t concentrate fully while wearing them, I tend to totter a little.
So there you go, Dear Readers – more fascinating insight into my shoes. I know you live for nothing else. Happy holidays!
