Oh Fluevog! Footwear ideal,
Great shoe maker in the north.
Your sturdy soles and quirky heel
Exemplify your worth.
Though your colors may seem
Lurid, gauche, crude, or vile
To us, they’re like a dream
We love what others revile
Queen of all other pairs
Lady Malibran reigns above
None others can compare
She fits like a glove.
O! Malibran! I hope to be ever in your favor
I know my love will never waver!
Since I did a March Madness bracket dedicated to my shoes, it will come as no surprise that I have a favorite pair of shoes.
Fluevog shoes aren’t everyone’s jam, but I feel hard for a pair called “Malibran.” The rounded toe and slight heel gave it the perfect, elevated look for classic lolita. The simplicity of the design meant that I could wear them for any style. The leather stitching added the perfect subtle details
When I slipped my feet inside, I knew these shoes were destined to become workhorses, in and out of lolita. They come in a shocking array of colors, and because they’re leather, they’ll last a long time. While they are expensive, these shoes have been worn so many times that I have no regrets.
