Have any of you checked out the Fluevog site? Oh my. There are so many new styles that I have yet to try. Next month, when I visit my beloved dealers at Haight Street, my senses will go into a complete frenzy! Of course, I will be relaying some new info. In fact, I will be playing catch up these upcoming weeks because there is a lot that I’ve tried on but haven’t shared yet. Many thanks for your patience. Here we go!
When I first saw the Awake | Peak, I immediately thought of Miss Dorothy. These are totally her kind of Vog. I know she’s trying to avoid heels and opt for flats. However, these lovelies speak to everyone’s inner artist. I tried these on in size 9.5, which is a half size larger than my usual size. As always, these were very steady given the heel height. Also, you gotta love the variation on this simple black boot. It has a platform heel that runs a little short underneath the toe area, but it does not have any impact on how you walk. (Confession: That was a concern for me.) I also love the lacing on this and I’m sure people will figure out how to find awesome laces in other colors just to give this Vog some flair.
The Prepare Hi | Venture was the total surprise for me. Having recently purchased a pair of vintage Mini | Lovers in pink, I automatically told myself that I wouldn’t consider adding this to my collection. The side lacing is very similar and I really don’t need yet ANOTHER pair of black boots in my collection. Alas, the Venture does not disappoint. I was amazed at how gorgeous these are. Of course, they’re comfy, give awesome height (a plus for a short gal like me), and are totally secure in fit. The “peep lace” area is larger than what you find on the Mini | Lover. With that, you can show off some skin or funky sock nicely. I thought this was a great alternative to the Mini | Lover. Admittedly, where the Mini | Lover seems to have a witch-y vibe to them, I feel that the Prepare Hi | Venture has a sexier edge. For me these were a pleasant surprise and I’m sure this would make a fantastic addition to anyone’s collection.
Hope you found this helpful! As always, feel free to connect with us. We love hearing from you!
For the love of Vogs,
