Enfin, je presente les chaussures oranges!
After one false start and some patience and effort, they're here! No "strict" shoes, these.
This pair of Fluevog "Coffee Macchiato's" are apparently the ONLY pair in this color and my size that were shipped to any US Fluevog store. Lovely Sales Associate Bree from the LA store tracked them down for me and ordered them shipped from the NY store. A week later they arrived on my doorstep; I opened the box and....they'd sent the wrong style! Bree got right on the phone and rectified with the NY store, and had the correct pair sent. (If you live in the US and are looking for a particular pair of Fluevogs, give Bree a call at 323-951-9555. She's a shoe angel!)
I picked up on Saturday (returned the wrong pair to the LA store), and am head over sculpted 3" heels for these shoes! Not only is the color just as bright as you see in the top pic, but they look amazing on, and are un.be.lieve.ably comfortable! They feel really good, seriously. The straps hug the top of the foot nicely (and each one is adjustable for a custom fit), the arch support is great and the design is well balanced so they really don't feel as high as 3". I also had a chance to look at the black and taupe colors in this style while I was at the store. Both are also fabulous options if you like the style but prefer a more neutral color.
Alas, I can't wear today as we have rain in the forecast, but tomorrow these babies make their debut! I almost hate to get these soles dirty, though!
Orange 'Vogs, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways....
