Two-Tone Jodhpur Boot
John Fluevog works with a seven-person design team but continues having input in every single design, designs which are characterized by a maverick style, eccentric but anchored in the historical, drawing from the Baroque to Victorian to the Cubism and Art Deco of the 1920s.
The shoes are made at small artisanal factories scattered around the world. In many cases, they’re hand assembled. Denny Garbuio, the manager of the Haight Street store in San Francisco, claims that “each one is touched about 2,000 times before it reaches the stores”. Against the trend of brick-and-mortar stores closing, new Fluevog Shoes locations have been opening steadily and enjoy a cult-like following of celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson, Woody Harrelson, Beyoncé, Sam Rockwell, Marisa Berenson and Madonna. Eleven of the two dozen in North America opened in just the past five years — in cities such as New Orleans, Denver and Montreal — while the Los Angeles, Toronto and Boston stores have recently relocated to larger quarters. There is also a new European beachhead, in Amsterdam.
The excellent boot shown here, in my view one of Fluevog’s most handsome designs and one of the most traditional, a classic Jodhpur with the addition of straps and details in a second colour, was certainly one of the most successful when available. Unfortunately, being a limited production boot, it sold out immediately….and, as one can see, for good reason. For practical purposes, we can say that this is the last of its kind.
