"The only thing we should leave behind is good art."
-John Fluevog

John Fluevog is my favorite shoe designer. These platforms were my first. I saved up for them in the 10th grade and they were delivered C.O.D. I gleefully waited with my money for the postman, ready to hand it over. My Sassy magazines would have advertisements for John Fluevog shoe design competitions. I would sit with my sketchbook and dream away. I never won but I thought it was the coolest thing. Thankfully, Dan loves Fluevog's as well so I don't have a super hard time talking him into new shoe purchases (every couple years). Quality not Quantity, baby. Well, I have a few pairs that I'm lusting after right now. I'm going to have to wait a year or so to get them but a girl can make a list. I thought I'd share because they are so beautiful.

I remember those platforms. They had black and red stripes on the soles.
