Fluevog Funky Shoes With Style

Believe it or not, this was my first time at John Fluevog.

I used to walk by that Queen Street window twice a day
and I don't really know why I never walked in...

To sum it up, they sell funky shoes with style.

Their staff are friendly and fun to talk to - one of them even tried on a pair of shoes for me!

 I'm sharing with you some of my favourite styles.






$215 (on sale, was $425)


I wasn't too crazy about their ladies collection - a bit too theatrical for my taste.
But they had some of the best men's shoes I've ever seen!

I don't think these photos do justice to the quality of the leather.
I guess you just have to go see (& touch) it to believe it!
