Last week I went down to Granville St. (it’s a long way from Richards St.) and bought myself some shoes from John Fluevog Shoes. Fluevog has been something of a Vancouver institution for as long as I can remember. Locally, his popularity took off with those gothy, super-pointy shoes in the early eighties.
I’m pretty happy with my purchase–they’ve got a funk factor of about 4. However, they hurt my feet like a mofo. In fact, despite the best efforts of 2nd Skin, I’ve got little sores on the tops (!) of my feet. Ah well, I guess we all have to suffer to be beautiful.
