John Fuevog's "Munster" Shoes

John Fuevog's "Munster" Shoes 
Born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, footwear designer John Fluevog began his career in the late 1960's at local shoe shop Sheppard's Shoes.  In 1970, he formed a partnership with Peter Fox to design and sell stylish shoes under the name Fox and Fluevog.

After an amicable split in 1981, Fluevog went on to open his first independent store, John Fluevog Shoes, in 1985.

Fluevog's quirky and avant-garde designs garnered him a cult following with the creative, artistic and rebellious crowd.  From ultra-pointy to overly-round toes, platform shoes, severely squared heels, handmade clogs; and adorned with art-deco designs, swirly, colorful patterns, peace signs, hearts, etc.

In 1990, Lady Miss Kier donned a pair of John Fluevog's Munster shoes on Deee-Lite's World Clique album cover, thus making the trumpet-heeled platforms an iconic symbol of the '90s House/Club underground DJ scene...

A limited-edition re-issue is available at the John Fluevog website.
