KKBB.Brown

Original photo found on the Fluevog Facebook page.

I just saw these on the Fluevog Facebook page. The KKBB:Liz is the hot Vog that has yet to covet my collection. With its popularity, my spider senses tell me that they are going to come out in some amazing colors and that I should just wait. Hel-lo! Look at this new color that’s coming out for the fall! Sigh.

So… What color(s) would you like to see KKBB:Liz in? Please post to comments.

For the love of Fluegasms,

  1. Full disclosure, I already own them in teal. But I want to see them commercially available in the colors that will be part of the Air Canada uniform, because hello, I would buy that too.

    They are pretty distinctive to own them in more than 2 colors, but I’d love a black/red option (I do not wear pink), and wouldn’t they be stunning in yellow for spring?

  2. Love!!! That brown/robin’s egg blue is my favourite yet! But I do love the black with hot pink accents. I think it would look fantastic in a leafy or pea green, maybe with cream piping.

    The Liz is a Vog that I’m not confident about buying without trying them on, so if I ever get around to these it will be after I drop by Fluevog NYC in the fall.

    • Hi Kath! Welcome:)

      Agreed. KKBB is a new family and I definitely suggest people either try them on or have a good conversation with a Fluevog dealer to figure out sizing. Most people I know had to go up 1/2 a size. However, I found that I needed to go up a full size. Silly me and my toe issues. The nice thing is that usually, if you know what size you are in a particular family, then the sizing is pretty consistent. (Note: Sometimes there are exceptions, which is why trying on the Vog or talking with a dealer helps.)

      Ooooh! A nice green would be gorgeous in these!

      • my own experience was that they were almost true to size and so that’s what i got. i could have gone up half a size but then they wouldn’t have contained my ankles. given these differences, which are probably due to foot shape, it’s definitely best to try them on first.

  3. i was going to buy them in pink but now that i’ve seen your post about this fall colorway, i think i’m going to wait. the brown would match my clothing colors for both seasons. i think of the pink as more spring/summer-only. though it is tempting to buy them in every color available!!!

    • Agreed. I didn’t jump on the black/pink color right away because when I tried them on, I thought, “These are going to be the new Malibran, Guide, or QTee. Fluevog is going to definitely make these in different colors!” In truth, I’m in LOVE with grey/burgundy combo that Air Canada employees get to wear. Have you seen the VIV that’s coming out in the fall? Sooo cute and from the same family!
