Back in the spring, I wrote about the end of a decade-long love affair with the Joe style of Fluevog boots. Several of you smartypantses suggested that I should contact Fluevog to see if they had any left in stock.
So I did.
They wrote me a very nice email back, and quite promptly:
I am very sorry to hear about your decade with your Joe boots coming to
a close. Sadly we haven't made that boot since 2001, and has been long long out
of stock. There is nothing left in any size in all the Fluevog stockrooms. :(
But the good news is that you can probably fix up the Joes you have
lived in quite easily. Bring them into the Toronto store, and their cobbler can restitch and
resole your shoes to give you an extra few years of world traveling in them!
Good luck, and hopefully we can get these running again. If not, there
are some awesome new Angel boots coming out this Fall, so keep an eye
out for them!
While I don't think I could ever bring myself to actually vog on I was damn sorry that I'd left the boots behind.
Let this be a lesson to you: email first, trash second.
