They were being offered by an Etsy seller as part of a number of 'Vogs he had for sale.
The pair I'm thinking of were a dark green color, almost black, in a rub off leather. Flared wooden heel connected to a wooden sole. Exposed seams. Definitely a design from the early days of John and Co.
Ring any bells?
How about this photo from the original listing? Does that help?
Well, I just wanted to say, I watched them sit online for a week with their size 10 designation, and it occurred to me that if that was a UK size, they just might be large enough to accommodate my tall size feet.
And I'm happy to say, I was right!
Like I said, they definitely have the look and feel of being something from the Fluevog archives. But rabid shoe fan that I am, I've contacted the company to see if they can tell me more. 1970s? 1980s? If you can help me out sooner, let me know. I'm just happy that I took the chance. They fit great. They're chock full of wooden goodness. And they're certainly one of a kind!
More blog to come after I get past my band's gig on Monday night. Been spending the weekend rehearsing parts and writing the stories about the music I'll be telling from the stage.
