fall fur

img_2380Power Up | Pussy Power. Size 10? I cannot, for the life of me, find my notes for these Vogs. Apologies for the lack of detail here. I do recall that these were really narrow for me, and I’m not a fan of narrow or pointy shoes. However, I do love the general sentiment of these Vogs. If I were looking for a pair of shoes to complement my beautiful Pussy Power hat made by the lovely Cindi H. as I march down the streets in the name of feminism, these would be it. Unfortunately, I’m generally not a fan of fur on my shoes (unless they’re winter boots and the fur is meant to keep my feet warm).

img_2394Prepares | Leader. Size 9.5 For the record, anything from the Prepares family is a no-brainer for me. I’m always in! Like everything else in this family, this furry version is equally comfy. The size 9.5 fit, but was a little tight, so I’d likely opt for a 10 in these. I love the little floral detail on the patent leather blue on these. Unfortunately, I’m just not a fan of the fur on these (and any other clothing item for that matter). It’s just me. If fur is your thing, then do you, Boo. Do you!

NB: In Fluevogs, I’m a women’s size 9. Depending on the fit and family, I size up or down from there. For example, in most Minis, I’m a size 8.5. In the Fellowships, I’m typically a size 9.5. However, I do have wide, flat feet and Morton’s Toe, which makes sizing a little strange for me. Admittedly, these days, I like a little more wiggle room in the toes and I don’t like to bother with extra stretching. Therefore, I’ve been sizing up in my more recent purchases.

compass: absolute perfection

img_2393

Prepares | Compass. Size 9.5. If you have 16″ calves like me, you may be partly relieved because generally, Mr. Fluevog doesn’t make knee high boots for our luscious legs. However, on that rare occasion when such a boot exists, I can’t help but want to IMMEDIATELY put it on my wish list. For fall 2017, my official gotta-have-it pick is the Compass. If you ever felt left out from grabbing a pair of Soprano | Hildegard, but didn’t feel too bad because they may not have been that comfy, then you’re in trouble. Compass is the Hildegard perfected. A member of the Prepares family, you can likely trot in these babies (pending the break-in period) all day long. They’re attention grabbing and come in two colors: grey (pictured) and navy blue with gold grommets. That you can switch up the look by changing the ribbon gives you endless possibilities! It does come at a hefty price (which I highly doubt will ever go on sale), but these are definitely investment Vogs that will pay off in the end. (Personally, I’d rather purchase these knowing I’ll use them all the time, as opposed to two-three meh sale pairs that will get mild usage. Trust me on this!) My wish list is weak in the knees for these!

Fall has been out for a few months now. What’s on your wish list?!
